Bradley Platz’ intricate oil paintings deal with the alternating nature of worship in the modern age. Using classical symbolic imagery from old world traditions and transposing subtle hints of modernity, his work might best be described as tarnished elegance. Ever present are certain whimsical and subtle symbols that carry the viewer through his body of work as a reader through a story, or a craft on the sea. Bradley is co-owner and curator at Modern Eden Gallery and has shown his work throughout the United States and beyond. He currently resides in San Francisco, CA.
Leilani Bustamante was born in Santa Rosa California and is a graduate of the Academy of Art University. She grew up between the suburban sprawl and rural Fort Bragg, where she draws inspiration from their simultaneous decay and growth. Her work often voices themes of mortality exploring elements of death, rebirth, beauty and spoil, the loveliness of the macabre and the mournful influence of osteological motifs. She currently resides in San Francisco.
