The catalog to the exhibition at Spoke Arts San Francisco and New York City galleries, Suggestivism Resonance takes the viewer on a journey through alternate worlds. Rendered in a variety of media, each artist has a distinct approach and style while maintaining commonality through painstaking details and phantasmagoric scenes. Described by the curator as an art movement, flowing from the artists' specific and unique vision, a psychological or even mystical manifestation brought into reality by an artist's personal aesthetic... and inspired by the likes of Rococo and Renaissance masters, painters James McNeill Whistler, Georges Seurat, writers like Edgar Allan Poe and contemporary surrealism. With over 40 artists from around the world including: Alex Pardee, Andy Kehoe, Audrey Kawasaki, Esao Andrews, Fulvio Di Piazza, Greg CRAOLA Simkins, Heiko Muller, Ken Garduno, Meghan Howland, Meredith Marsone, Scott Musgrove, Skinner, Tran Nguyen and Wendy Ortiz.
