“My aesthetic is pop with overlapping surrealist and cinematic tones. I love to abstract images and place them back together in a different context, which conjures up new ways of looking at things. Print and motion work are my favorite mediums. In different and yet complementary ways, they allow me to explore new dimensions” Mat Maitland

Eric White presents photorealistic scenes with a surreal visual twist in his cinematic paintings. For source materials, White turns to 1940s-era Hollywood films and film noir; he also claims inspiration from David Lynch’s darkly humorous TV series Twin Peaks. Compressing a sequence of events into a single moment, White creates claustrophobic scenes populated by glamorous figures locked in ambiguous psychological drama.

New York City based artist Jim Gaylord‘s abstract works are often based on imagery from contemporary film and television. Combining stills from transitory cinematic moments, he transposes them to extract new compositions, which are then used as the bases for paintings and gouache on paper collages. Gaylord’s work combines meticulous figuration with obscure forms that are familiar but unrecognizable.
