Søren Vandegaard Bio
Born April 28, 1971
Currently lives and works in New Orleans, LA USA
Søren Vandegaard is an emerging artist, working primarily in acrylic paint and bits of colored paper. He often employs recycled cardboard as the surface for bold colors and emotive tableaux in a post-impressionistic manner. While repeatedly applying and removing color with a variety of fun and cathartic mini-commitments, Søren explores the post-accidental route to resolution in a symphony of soulful improvisations that become sealed in a water-based polyurethane…

Michael Thiele Bio
My name is Michael Thiele. I grew up in the New Orleans area.
While in art school, I did close up life drawings of marine life and I discovered it to be very difficult to represent the intricacies of the structures and patterns that I observed. Eventually, I was introduced to the Italian mathematician Fibonacci’s “ Golden Ratio.” I discovered that the Golden Ratio related to the various growth patterns of the things I was trying to draw and paint. After more investigation, I found a specific pattern that, to me, epitomized all of what I was seeing. That dynamic pattern became the basis of my artwork.
When I was growing up, my family would take an annual trip to the white sandy beaches of the Florida panhandle just as my father did when he was a boy. My first encounter with the ocean was at age 2 and it was love at first site. My affinity for the ocean has never ceased. I have always been inspired by ocean life, specifically by reef invertebrates. When I’ve looked closely at animals such as coral, crustaceans, and cephalopods, I have observed very interesting color interactions that I have not seen anywhere else. In my work, I’m trying to recreate the look and vibe of those animals without a direct association to a specific object.
