JEREMY EATON, EnERGETIC studio, 521 NW 43rd St., open 12 to 6 Sat. & Sun.
My art is primarily concerned with expressing an enthusiasm for mid twentieth century American print media; comic books, pulp magazines, candy wrappers, science fiction, everything considered cheap and generally unworthy, but which I find steeped in a mystifying and accidental visual beauty. I attempt to evoke this using chiefly acrylic paints on canvas and plywood, replicating the bygone splendor in a colorful and robust form. I am currently building a series of paintings representing Seattle history in landmarks both present and gone, some of which are in this showing.

These are portraits of some people who are special to me. They bring color and vibrancy to life, so I try to portray them colorfully and vibrantly.
"I made these pieces to honor the glory in the ordinary, and secondarily, to showing one of my ways of fighting ego. I attempt to resist the myths that human worth is found in status and credentials by revealing wonderful creatures, uncontainable moments, and genuine relationships that knock me off my feet and out of my head. These give me a glimpse of loyalty and love by looking to other creatures to learn from their accidental humility.
All works are hand made using paint markers, micron pens, spray paint, and oil paint."
