September 1– 30
For the month of September Black Moth will feature select works by local mixed media artist, Jeff Schaller. Drawing from decades of pop culture and advertising styles and techniques Schaller creates some playful, exciting and provocative collages. "I paint in the unique medium of encaustic, creating textural art pieces which incorporate representational form with the printed word. In essence, the visual and written symbols merge to create a unique aesthetic language that is both provocative and whimsical. My multiple-image pieces, with images ranging from polka dots to popular culture, evoke emotions and memories in the viewer. The combination of images tells a story and provokes a personal exchange between the art and the audience"
