Misho Gallery is proud to present "Distinctive Views", featuring Xavier Phelp and guest artists, Roxanne Worthington, valerie jacobs & Heiko Greb.
XAVIER PHELP works in a range of styles, for example the purely aesthetic, abstract, painterly representational, social commentary, montage, and classical. He has developed specific computer processing algorithms, such as Process 137 and Phelpographs, each producing a characteristic visual form. In the current exhibition we show a range of his work from a variety of genres - we show a number of DISTINCTIVE VIEWS.
The visual arts have been a lifelong occupation for Xavier Phelp. He has worked in a number of media, including oils, acrylics, watercolours, mixed media, kinetic art, constructions and fine-art photography; creating works with dimensions from less that one inch to more that 20 feet. He comes from a line of artists. His father was a fine draughtsman and created two dimensional and three dimensional art. His aunt worked as a painter in oils and acrylics, and his daughter directs commercial artists.
Xavier Phelp was educated at Bristol University, University College London, and Stanford University.
He is a resident member of Photo Nouveau and a member of Art Span SF. He has recently shown at curated exhibitions at Arc Gallery, The Swiss Consulate, ArtSpan, and the South of Market Artist's Coalition.

Roxanne Worthington will share some of her photographs from her "Passing Through" series.
valerie jacobs use images that are available to us from history, culture, and politics. She uses most media to realize her art and want to involve the viewer in the knowledge that relationships are far more complex than they appear.
Heiko Greb considers his sculptures "successful" if the viewer has to look twice and then walks away with a puzzled smile. It has then opened a novel door inside the viewer's perception-spectrum.
