SuperCharged Printmakers Studio Artists
Nicole Mueller is a Minneapolis photographer, printmaker, and real estate agent with a passion for the preservation and celebration of modernist architecture. Nicole’s photographs from her Desert Playground series are color-saturated, timeless portraits of the homes and landmarks that line the streets of Palm Springs’ iconic neighborhoods. Nicole uses vintage film cameras in combination with specialty films to create a sense of intimacy and capture the personalities of each structure.
Genie is the studio director of SuperCharged Printmakers Studio. She is a screen printer that makes fun, pop art, quirky prints and big large monotype prints. She is currently really digging Smurfs!
Desirée Forgét is a self-taught multidisciplinary artist based in Minnesota. She is a silversmith, with her own jewelry line, and has been a makeup artist working in print, film, and television for the last fifteen years. In creating her visual work, Desirée often explores whimsical and irreverent themes, with vibrant colors and playful subjects, often reflecting on current issues that hint at the serious while maintaining a carnivalesque sense of fun and the absurd.
Whether it is a biblical story, fairy tale or personal narrative – storytelling is intrinsic to Surelle’s artwork. Her paintings often depict women who are in the midst of navigating their stories, or re-writing them entirely. They are re-imagined as more than incapable children, or damsels in distress, the fairy-tale of the female experience, is represented by multifaceted character, and symbolism.
This series of floral screen prints are an outlet to “create” whatever makes her smile and to forget the pressures often put on creatives in the professional setting. These prints serve as a reminder to embrace life as it is, today, now — in essence, to “stop and smell the flowers.”
Erin is a printmaker, known for her large scale drawings she converts to screen prints and large intaglio prints. She hand-registers prints using multiple colors.
The Weight of it All & Abstraction
Jun 3rd – Jul 22nd
Fri Jul 7th 6PM
SuperCharged Printmakers hosts two new exhibitions featuring the work of Alan Shefland and mother/son collaborative Heather Mattera and Ben Mattera.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Heather Mattera & Ben Mattera
The Weight of it All
A mother and son collaborative, utilizing photography as a visual language to promote curiosity about teen boys, their relationship with food and their relationship with body.
Bending light and shadow, the two work together to bring voice to those unheard. Through portrait, still life, and documentary photography, they share an intimate story of struggle, growth and freedom.
After ending his career as a Hollywood Motion Picture Editor Shefland decided to get serious about his very part time hobby: photography. He took classes at the Minnetonka Center for the Arts, and after a couple of years started teaching Photography. Those years of honing his visual art knowledge helped in my transition.
“I practice and enjoy several abstract approaches and subjects. Abstracting architecture is a fun exercise that shows the melding of various building styles to present one frame where these different styles come to play. And sometimes the elements are minimal … stairways. handrails, loading docks, aging metals and people. Enjoy!”
