SEAN GARRISON

Sean Garrison is a native Detroiter raised in Minneapolis, MN. A proclaimed “renaissance man." He is a writer and Abstract painter in which both disciplines cross-influence the other. The influences range from the words of Nikki Giovanni, Amiri Baraka, Pablo Neruda and Anne Sexton to Frank Bowling, Jackson Pollack, Willem de kooning and Ed Clark. He is a co-founder and member of the ROHO Arts collective.  A self-taught artist he feels that all artists should have a foundational understanding of art but art is conceived in the soul of the artist which precludes an academic knowledge.  He enjoys visual art in its entirety; however, abstract art's ability to elicit different responses to “what it is” intrigues him as no answer, in his opinion, is essentially wrong.

SOTO

CHARLES EDWARD SOTO is a master distiller serving us simply the purest shots of emotion, straight up. No Chasers.  The very idea of art is often most confusing to those of us brave enough to undertake a belletristic endeavor. However, it is because of those willing to brave the darkest caves of creativity and insanity that we are given the chance to experience art, which at its most basic pure level is this: emotion distilled through the filter of experience and preserved in the concrete limits of moment and medium. Soto’s holistic approach to humanity finds itself reflected in the many mediums Soto finds comfort in working in.

These moving "mini-portraits” reveal McDuffy's in depth exploration using a rare, human quality to express how Black struggles and culture have shaped black people over time.
