Syd Bee is a Seattle-based painter that creates figurative paintings that often appear to exist in a dreamlike state. Working in oils, the artist employs a technique of creating a pastel-hued glow around her subjects. Bee enjoys the way the soft outer edges of the paintings feel optically; which enhances the mysterious effect produced by her oil paintings.

Interview: Syd Bee Discusses Her Latest Dreamlike Figurative Paintings for “In My Bones”


Jeff Soto (HF Vol. 18) celebrated his first solo exhibition in Los Angeles since 2009 on Saturday night with “Nightgardens” at KP Projects/MKG. We recently discussed the exhibition with Soto in our studio visit here, where Soto shared his continued interest in landscapes. He shares, “Nightgardens” is an exploration of the magic and mystery in life coupled very loosely with the tradition of landscape painting. For this show I am using the concept of “nighttime” as a symbol of the unknown. I’m working on creating an imaginary world of magic, monsters and daydreams that exists in a different time and place, yet alludes to issues in our chaotic modern world.”

A primera vista, sus fotografías de edificios parecen normales, aunque muy modernos, y solo es posible advertir su inverosimilitud estructural con una mirada muy minuciosa. Ignora las leyes de la física, desafiando la gravedad y el material, para crear composiciones arquitectónicas exquisitas e impensables.
