    Josh George uses a highly inventive technique in his work, combining collage and painting: he first prepares a panel with layers of maps (usually of Italy), wallpaper and other elements. Once this foundation is laid down, the figures are painted in, then embellished with additional collage that further enriches them. George’s vibrant colors combine with the complex layering to create an visual experience that is exciting for the viewer. Also represented by:

  • Amanda Wachob

    Amanda Wachob

    Biography : Amanda Wachob is a New York based painter and tattoo artist who works in a number of media . Exhibition : Wachob has shown extensively in galleries nationally and internationally : Yves Laroche, Montreal; Robert Berman, Santa Monica; Minescapes, Osaka; Roq la Rue, Seattle; Museo de la Ciudad de Mexico; Ghostprint Gallery, Richmond, to name a few. She has also been featured in numerous publications. Detailed Description :
    Regarding tattooing's potential as a fine art form Wachob states : "In the same way that a brush can paint the interior of a house or render a fine oil painting, I see the tattoo machine as a tool that can make art." Her work on silk and linen takes the idea of the controlled black line (the basis for most tattoos) and develops its potential in spontaneous gestural marks. The unifying element throughout Wachob's work is her painterly style and control of the medium. To quote Hilary Greenbaum in the N.Y. Times ; "Her originality within the field pays homage to the defiance of her trade’s origins, while the exuberance of her work acknowledges the living and breathing vitality of her medium."
