– Robert Cunningham-Graham
Most of my life has been lived in the company of horses. They feature in my memories, so in my imaginings, so in my art. Mankind has commonly portrayed the horse as a symbol of power and authority. I prefer to see horses as individuals, as a source of comfort and joy. It is my hope that this is reflected in my work.
Joe Uglyeye - Neon Summer
Hello everyone I’m Joe Uglyeye, born in Mexico and raised in Pajaro, California. I am currently a student at Cabrillo College majoring in Studio Arts. My goal is to learn as many art processes that I can. I love to learn and to push my artistic skills and talents in any medium I can get my hands on. Learning about different art forms (e.g. Painting, Printmaking, Sculpture, Ceramics, Graphic Design, and Small Scale Metals) has taught me not only to be resourceful, but also to appreciate that there are many ways to get a project done.
I’ve recently quit my full time job in order to focus more on my art and school. Diving in the pool of uncertainty I’m chasing a dream that I hope will bring me more happiness. Having said that I present to you my series titled “Neon Summer”. This work has elements of things that make me think of summer, or are inspired by the people around me. The color palette I’ve chosen are bright fluorescent neon colors, some of the paintings focal point differ when color lights illuminate them, and also some have glow in the dark paint mixed in for pizzaz.
