Just like its counterpart, the celebrated East Austin Studio Tour, WEST is a free, self-guided tour that champions the abundance of talent of Austin's large and wildly diverse creative community. The public is invited to discover new artistic talent, see working studios, learn about artists' tools, techniques, and inspirations, and support the arts community by building their collections and supporting local businesses. This catalog will give you an overview of everything and everyone on the tour. Our website is also full of information and further images for the artists on the tour, as well as printable maps. You can go wild and see every single stop on the tour, or go through the catalog and pick out all your favorites. Your WEST experience is up to you. We hope you'll keep this catalog as a reference to artists and spaces you'd like to keep an eye on. Together with your East Austin Studio Tour catalog from last fall (you kept that, right?), you now have a really comprehensive set of guides to the Austin art scene. Have you looked at the map yet? As you may have noticed, WEST covers a wide geographical area; just as non-homogenous as Austin itself, the broad range of work reflects the eclectic abundance of artists working west of I-35. Additionally, a number of pop-up spaces are presenting art shows and events. Before you hop on your velocipede to explore all that this inaugural WEST has to offer, please do keep in mind that most of the studios on the tour are located in residential neighborhoods, so it's important to show the love to our WEST neighbors by not blocking driveways or leaving anything behind. In fact, if you pick up anything wayward on the ground, you can help keep Austin weirdly beautiful. All works represented in this magazine were reproduced with expressed permission from the artists.

Taking the familiar shapes out of context allows the viewer to examine the aesthetic and anthropomorphic qualities of these systems.

I paint people largely because I am captivated by their endless emotional complexity, but also am in love with the physical life of paint. Sometimes, a painting may be inspired by something as simple as the shape and color of a friend's hair; always, however, my subjects are chosen because of a personal connection that I wish to translate to canvas.

The focus of my work is to lure the viewer to enter my forbidden territory. Each piece is meant to represent a certain time-frame in my life and I believe that unintentionally, I am the subject of all of my pieces. Working with large scale canvas represents the magnitude of emotions and desire that embodied me when I executed each painting.

My recent work is based on travels in the Middle East, where competing historical narratives and cultural memories shape modern life. These works portray a shared landscape, repeatedly divided, and the beauty of a land we often only hear about in terms of bloodshed.

I fall in love with some aspect of each person and that process feels benevolent and expansive. 015 Entry ID #586 Artists & Studios 0 1 5 (512) 912-8142 / 309 Park Ln / firstname.lastname@example.org / elizabethchapin.com 001 2012 WEST AUSTIN STUDIO TOUR 027 0 1 6 016a Entry ID #366 Artists & Studios Joshua Clements Oil painting / Joshua Clements Studio I was basically the quirky asthma kid, so instead of gym class I was pushing pencil to paper, drawing my favorite cartoons for my buddies. My style today is a direct result of my obsession with cartoons like Ninja Turtles and that oozy sloppy cheese pizza, Ghostbusters & Slimer, Ren & Stimpy, and Beavis & Butthead. What started as pencil to paper ultimately led to brush and canvas and a whole new world of colors and textures emerged.

When I touch my brush to canvas, I tend to do it purely for the release of energies. These energies will come from dark places, places of light and hope, or maybe somewhere in between. The feelings I liberate with paper and paint may also develop from an infection of sorrow around me or an opposing bubble of joy from others close to me.

Frequently, I choose settings or views that depict a glimpse of a woman's daily routine or personal attire. If the art evokes a response from the viewer, it's likely to be one from personal experience - a time of day or special occasion. Once the memory is recalled, it becomes a shared experience with the artist - part of our collective feminine mythology.

By using circles, blown ink, wood grain, dripping paint and organic forms while working in a spontaneous and subconscious manner, I showcase this fluidity by allowing the inner child to emerge.

Approached as painting rather than drawing and less about "line" than about light, shadow and texture. Often said to "look like photographs," they go far beyond that with a clarity of subject not possible in a photo and an undefined quality to awaken an emotional response. Experiencing the ordinary in extraordinary ways. 517 E 40th St 164 WEST AUSTIN STUDIO TOUR 2012 001 / firstname.lastname@example.org / bjurstromstudio.com Karen Maness / guest of David Bjurstrom Painting, design 106b Entry ID #141 Artists & Studios 1 0 6 My paintings are memorbuchs about relationships, efforts at exploring intimacy and documenting wonder, layered often as not upon the bones of other paintings. I integrate and contrast the human form with environments and architectures, weaving stylistically through magical realism and collaged abstraction toward a kind of theatrical realism. Memory pieces, large and small, to conjure old memories and cultivate new ones.

I regard each new piece as a dimensional, physical object and strive for compositions which vibrate between microscopic and monumental scale. Vigorously sculptural grounds establish the fundamental form; subsequent layering satiates both the visceral/impulsive self and the calculated/ scientific self. Once the work evokes a sense of sentimentality, it feels complete. 126 Entry ID #421 Artists & Studios 1 2 6 5706 Avenue F / firstname.lastname@example.org / mansfield-paradis.com 001 2012 WEST AUSTIN STUDIO TOUR 189 1 2 7 127 Entry ID #143 Artists & Studios Eric Verret Markers, watercolors I use felt tip markers and watercolors to bring my imagination alive.

Most recently, I have been focusing on still-life setups in my studio. I enjoy the way that a painting can push an everyday object or scene into a realm of beauty, mystery, or wonder, through the artist's interpretation. Regardless of their varied characteristics, I want my paintings to be personal, intimate, and sincere. 147 Entry ID #362 Artists & Studios 1 4 7 (512) 323-2196 / 103 W Crestland Dr / email@example.com / claretownes.com 001 2012 WEST AUSTIN STUDIO TOUR 219 1 4 8 148a Entry ID #496 Artists & Studios Carmen Canann / Carmen Art Studio Photography, acrylic paintings, dish gardens, mobiles Carmen began taking photographs while living on the beach in Hawaii and took up painting in acrylic after moving to Austin.

In all of my work, I merge my personal, aesthetic experience with systematic, scientific methods in pursuit of a holistic comprehension of my natural subjects. This approach reflects my impulse to both understand my environment in the most conventionally factual way, while simultaneously embracing its hopeless (but profound and poetic) complexity, subjectivity and obscurity.

That means a realistic but stylized ideology of a scene that evokes a mood at a particular moment in time. I strive to interpret the inherent vitality of nature. The tactile application of pastels allows an intimate involvement in the work, which I hope contributes to the sentiment a viewer experiences. My oil paintings are more tonal and reflect quieter, more harmonious moments.
