Jason is our newest gallery member and we could not be more pleased...
He had an awakening four years ago as the result of an extreme sleep apnea diagnoses. Like a page out of Rip Van Winkle, Jason woke up in the middle of his life and started asking questions: "Who am I? What am I doing? Where am I going?" There were no answers, only a new found view of the world around him. He started writing poetry, and taking photographs.
"My dreams at night are still elusive and fleeting. I manipulate my photographs to look like how I imagine they might appear in my dreams."
Red Raven is also proud to feature a guest artist from Seattle.. Braden Duncan.
She is a portrait artist by trade, imperfect by choice, and a cog in the machine of human mythology by default.
"I draw my inspiration from the peculiar minutiae of the human form, symbolism and mythology, the empty spaces left by missing friends, and the intricate elegance created by the convergence of biological and mechanical elements."
An alumnus of Cornish College of the Arts, Braden lives in Seattle, Washington with her chosen family and the animals of the Mongrel Circus.....
