Lost in Triangulation
“While many were running in circles, I brushed with triangles”
Today, after years of capturing human subjects with his camera, Philippe explores a new medium: collage on canvas. He builds on previous work, using previous portraits that he cuts, deconstructs, and reassembles to create distinctive paintings. Whereas a younger Philippe may have been focused on painting an individual subject, a new layer is added: the artist interrogates his own process of representation.
A worldwide shakedown, like in 2008, was needed to push the artists' creative inspiration beyond the frontier of previous exploration. During months of lock down, Philippe Regard is locked down in his studio. He turns around in circles, or rather, in triangles.

"I used to be a photographer for many years, but about 2018 I had to start a job as a barista/bartender in a lovely corner bistro in Brooklyn, NY. Covid 19 hit us and the bistro went down forever... and I got lost in Triangulation so I started to paint."
We are pleased to announce our first artist in the 'Think Outside the Walls' Series.
February 14 - March 7, 2021
Jaleh Sadravi is a photographer and painter currently based in Seattle, Washington. As a multiracial woman in America, Jaleh strives to find a way to highlight and empower the voices and experiences of those often ignored. “As an artist, I am interested in discovering ways to share the stories of people of color whose voice and story are often silenced.”
Through her abstract paintings, Jaleh conveys themes of community, unity, and love. Jaleh creates pieces that express her own life experiences – being surrounded by a trusting community, holding hands with family and friends, witnessing a baptism. Jaleh hopes that when people view her paintings, they experience a feeling of hope and are reminded that they are loved.
More details about Jaleh's art are available on her website.
Jaleh works as a Marketing Director for an early learning children's show called Look, Listen and Learn.
LL&L produces children’s television to bridge the achievement gap in Washington so that BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) kids enter school ready to learn and able to succeed.
