PEGASUS ARTIST OF THE MONTH – FEBRUARY 2020
From the artist:
“Deceptive Simplicity: A term used to describe an image of perceived simplicity, until you are emerged in the process of the creation.
The images displayed are but a small glimpse into the mind of one of Seattle’s most prolific artists. Images that stem from a life of diversity, struggle, joy and pain. A life of travel, near death experiences, and a passion for creation.
As a 3rd generation Seattle native, Matt LaCross has continued to develop his interests as an industry leader in the alternative sports industry, creator of the only no-fee, no-commission art gallery in Seattle, founder of one of the most highly recognized specialty BMW Motorsport retail locations in the United States, as well as becoming the Northwest Brand Ambassador for Ferrari, and has developed his artistic ability for the sole purpose of creation.
The idea of the continuous line images you see, or what some call “one-liners” have been inspired by the works of Pablo Picasso. Creating a continuous line image comes from the subconscious, and can never be recreated. Each image has been created by hand in one stroke, one idea, one pure thought. This requires committing to the idea, no matter what the outcome.”
All featured artworks from this exhibition are available for viewing and sale on the walls of Pegasus Coffee House from February 1 to 29, and also for online sale (with the addition of a packaging and shipping charge unique to each work) – please make all non-local purchase inquiries via the Contact Pegasus Page here at pegasusbainbridge.com.”
