Vanessa Ly

Mar 17 – Apr 22 2022

Artist: Vanessa Ly

Because expressions make the best impressions…

Originally a Boston-based architect / artist, I have ventured my way to Seattle to explore what everyone calls the “west coast vibes” in a continuation to indulge in my obsessive passion – illustrating the intriguing puzzles of my mind. Trained with the rigor mindset of one profession yet adapted to the abstract of another has created this fixation of intertwining mechanics and organics as reflected in many of my subject matters; there is always the interest of engaging the rigidity of one element that is typically man-made with the looseness of another that is part of our nature to create a composition where characteristics of both are shared and equalized. With a playful heart in mind, hopefully each piece can compel the viewers to question why?

Please enjoy, comment, and share =) Interpretations are welcomed.

Max Marlett – Symbols and Archetypes: Modern Reflections of the Past

Dec 15 – Feb 28 2021

Artist: Max Marlett

Symbols and Archetypes: Modern Reflections of the Past

Marlett is driven to investigate the thread that connects the symbols and archetypes of classic stories to generate a new perspective for his subject matter. By looking at life through a lens outside of time, he can get to the heart of what remains the same throughout human history. Despite the new era of technology we are living in, we are faced with the same desire to live with a life of purpose. Through these juxtapositions, he hopes to express the dominance of nature over human innovation, an remind people of our ephemeral relationship with the natural world.



Max Marlett was born and raised in Portland, Oregon. He received his Bachelor of Arts in Fine Arts from Gonzaga University in 2015. Max works primarily in oil on canvas and oil on panel. Painting from life has been fundamental for his development, but he also paints from sketches, collage and photography. This year, Max has a painting accepted in the Center on Contemporary Art’s Member show in 2020. In 2019, he received the Kent Summer Art Exhibit Purchase Award from the city of Kent, Washington. Max also has two paintings on permanent display at the Paragon Restaurant in Seattle. Recently, Max has been inspired by works in cultural anthropology, gonzo journalism, and horror movies from the 1980s. Above all, Max believes that it is important for the artist to create their own world in order to have a dialogue with modern culture. He currently lives in Seattle, Washington and shows his artwork throughout the Pacific Northwest.
