From Art

The Artwork of Pat Perry

Pat Perry is from Michigan and is committed to real things. He likes to draw and paint and play and run and write. Although he is happy to be able to speak and have an audience through his artwork, he does his best everyday to listen and learn from the world he lives in. His work will be featured in Issue 25.2. And we were able to interview him: Selina Hammond: You’ve created an entire series based on Alaska that includes illustrations, sketches, and photography.

The Artwork of Kathleen Lolley

By Adam Lefton, Managing Editor Kathleen Lolley’s artwork is suffused with dark magic. Flowers bloom from the hollowed out faces of a donkey and a girl. A tree bleeds from an arrow’s wound. A swarm of moth-like owls with beady eyes hides in a tree stump. We love the world her work inhabits, a kind of surreal dream infused with the earthy tones of nature, and we’re honored to feature some of her pieces in the most recent issue of Sycamore Review. We’re also thrilled to be using her art on our website. To see more of her work, you can visit Lolleyland.…

The Frames Choose the Photographs: An Interview with Jefferson Hayman

BY JULIETTE LUDEKER SR: You have a unique style that is reminiscent of early 20th century artists such as Alfred Stieglitz and Paul Strand. And much of your work is images made of contemporary objects but with a referencing of the past. Can you speak a little but about your influences and motivation in creating work? How did you come to work in a style that is far from the slick, hyper-real images many people associate with photography today? What ideas, reference, emotions, etc. are you hoping to trigger in those who view your images? Hayman: Nostalgia has always affected…
