Jason C. McLean

You may know him as JC Sunshine or from Car Stories over the years, but what you probably didn’t know is that he was once a spoken-word artist. Now you know. And knowing is half the battle.

Evaly


My work is the fruit of my tree.All gesture born in intention. All intention born in love. For me to work, I must remove my mind from its churning orbit. I work from within, my body is the negotiator of my movement, my forgotten dance that is my own creative voice. Symbol, color and movement. These are the driving forces of the work. Born in abstraction, forms emerge to tell a story. Painting and Spoken Word By Evaly.

Sang Eun Lee


I paint because it lets me simply be. In this state of being, I have the freedom to let my intuition roam into the painting’s territory. Because being the painter of my chosen surface does not grant me sole conviction or authority over its fate. I can’t ever plan a painting into being, because to me, painting is, by being a form of pure expression, defined by the very search for it that makes up the process of painting. This process involves a dialogue between the progressive build up of paint marks as they meet the surface of the painting, and how the surface responds to these marks. The surface proposes what should come next and I negotiate with it until a painting is created.

The combination of color, texture and movement make up the identity of my paintings. What they emote comes from my intuition, so the energy is raw, complex and baroque. My paintings evoke drama, and it’s inevitable, since it comes from the most unhindered, ungovernable place inside of me. I see humanity as mysterious, wavering, unpredictable and beautiful, and I suppose that is ultimately what I want to share with my paintings.
