Rory Terrell

Rory Terrell Environmental Activism artist
Teilor Good Ceramic sculpture

Opening Party, May 3rd, 6 to 9pm

Two highly accomplished Bay Area artists who use earth products to their create art. This exhibit explores environmental activism though alternative mediums.

Rory Terrell is an outdoorsman-river-rat of Idaho, living and working in Berkeley, California.  Terrell has studied fine art at Queensland College of Art in Brisbane Australia and Boise State University, where he graduated in 2012 with a BFA in painting and drawing.  He has been awarded two Art Department scholarships in 2010 and 2012 whilst attending BSU and has been displaying his work at exhibitions in Boise and in the state of Washington.
Terrell is an Environmental Activism artist, an idea fostered while he lived in Brisbane, Australia (2008-2009).  He is working with used motor oil as a media for a new form of conceptual painting.  This concept was cultivated after he witnessed an oil spill off the coast of Queensland in 2009.  The 71,000 gallons of oil from the capsized ship washed ashore and contaminated the beaches near to where he was living.  Shortly after he returned to the United States, the Deep Water Horizon incident occurred and further fueled the desire to express his disquiet to the miss handling of the drilling process for hydrocarbon.  roryterrellart.tumblr.com

Teilor GoodTeilor Good, a San Francisco native, has been a practicing artist in the bay area for over a decade.  Inspired by her love of animals and rendering  the  female  form,  she  has  created  her  own  unique  pantheon  of  "beastly goddesses".  Her pieces speak of animal rights and the human, animal relationship. Her style is strongly influenced by Egyptian art and storybook illustration. Playfully transitioning between sculpture and painting, Good’s work ranges from simplistic stylizations to realistic depictions of the "whimsically macabre"             

Good received her B.F.A with Distinction in Ceramics from the California College of the Arts in 2003.  Good shows her work locally, in both solo and group exhibitions. Good lives and work in the bay area as A Museum Art Preparator. More of Good's work can be seen at teilorgood.artspan.com
