“Suggestivism” is the embodiment of each artist’s individual intent in his or her own art pieces, created with a unique sense of purpose, amplified understanding, and sensitivity to outside visual stimuli.

Drawing from interior and exterior influences, the artists featured work in a variety of different mediums to present vivid scenes that leave narrative to the imagination and meaning open to interpretation. Often intricate and evocative of the richness and languid decadence of historical tableaus, the artwork in Suggestivism contains elements of world-weariness, isolation, and a sense of the absurd.

Suggestivism features more than fifty artists, including the likes of Chris Mars, Brendan Monroe, Alex Gross, Mia, Audrey Kawasaki, Michael Page, MARS-1, Dalek, Jeff Soto, Ron English, Elizabeth McGrath, Tara McPherson, Scott Musgrove, Greg Simkins, Skinner, and Robin Williams.

Includes studio shots and artist interviews conducted during the two years of exhibition curation.

Discrepancies: Alex Gross
Discrepancies: Alex Gross
Gross’s highly involved, figurative oil paintings defy categorization: his unusual hybrids, for all their dreamlike mystery, powerfully convey universal themes such as Love and Despair, Globalization and Consumerism, Com­munication and the lack of it. more...

Nuclear Mystic NEW
Nuclear Mystic
Mars-1 has a stunning talent and style that leaves much to the imagination. A mixture of the organic, the paranormal sci-fi, his graffiti roots, and the cosmic psychedelic, his artwork resonates as a purely original style composed of abstract forms. more...

Brendan Monroe
Brendan Monroe
Monroe’s free flowing brush strokes and muted color palette lends itself to greater exploration as the work simultaneously calms and invites. “My fascination is with a smaller world. Maybe it could tell us [all] about something deep inside ourselves, or, maybe it just helps me work things out within my own self.” more...

Further documents and presents the symbiotic relationship between seven artists and friends who share a visual dialogue: MARS-1, NoMe Edonna, Oliver Vernon, Tomokazu Matsuyama, Damon Soule, David Choong Lee, and Robert Hardgrave. more...
