Other Artists represented by the Gallery:

Peter Combe
Biography : Peter Combe’s process has always been about an appropriation of various materials with the purpose to create striking illusionary impressions. Past modes of creativity include the manipulation of television imagery photographed with a still camera and later reworked into 3D constructions and appropriated imagery drawn from print media employing traditional cut and paste methods further distorted using 90's era copier equipment. Presently the work is about employing the use of pilfered paint swatches “readymade" paint palette with a spectrum drawing from over one Thousand various colors tones. These works comprise of painstakingly punched and arranged discs of color set at 45 degree angles that extend from the working substrate, thus delivering an optical effect. A single source mode of lighting shone directionally from the right produces a dynamic not immediately comprehended by the viewer. These artworks transform and change subtly as the viewer shifts from his/her vantage point. Combe, a Canadian/British dual citizen, has maintained a working studio in San Francisco since 2008. His works reside is private collections and museums the world over, and is represented at Robert Fontaine Gallery.
Nick Gentry
Biography : Nick Gentry is a British artist from London. Much of his artistic output has been generated with the use of contributed artefacts and materials. He states that through this process "contributor, artist and viewer come closer together". His art is influenced by the development of consumerism, technology and cyberculture in society, with a distinctive focus on obsolete media. He is best known for his floppy disk paintings, placing an emphasis on recycling and the reuse of personal objects as a central theme. Such artistic works of social commentary have been featured in galleries in the UK, USA and in cities throughout the world. His work has been exhibited alongside established street artists and as such has been linked to the urban art scene in London.
James McNabb
Biography : James McNabb is a Philadelphia-based artist, designer, and craftsman specializing in woodwork sculpture. His most recent work “The City Series” is a collection of wood sculptures that represent a woodworker's journey from the suburbs to the city. Each piece depicts an outsider's perspective of the urban landscape. Made entirely of scrap wood, each work is an interpretation of making something out of nothing. Each piece is cut intuitively using a band saw—a style akin to “sketching with a band saw.” The resulting compositions are complex geometric collections of architectural forms, each distinctly different from the next, including a skyline, a sphere, and a table. He runs a design studio with his wife where he crafts these and other heirloom quality pieces.
Ashley Oubré
Biography : Ashley Oubré is a photo-realist who utilizes photo-realistic techniques to achieve keen light, shadow and texture in her portraits. Oubré’s works are crafted with graphite powder, india ink and carbon pencil. Working in a style she calls “hyper realism,” Oubre says she’s drawn to subjects that are socially damaged in some way. Her work accentuates photographic deviations from reality to create a hyperrealism reference, true to life and form. Oubré’s works are primarily unique due to her discernment for social hardships and use of gray tones, capturing images that suggest for a minute the finished image has motion.
Jarek Puczel
Biography : Born in Poland in 1965, Jarek Puczel received his MA from the University of Warsaw in 1990. He approaches his work with the idea that life is a movie or a game of illusion and the world is a playground where different realities play with one another. Puczel catches the calmness of apparently simple and unspectacular situations with an impressive modesty and apparent ease. He creates an interesting and tense moment, which we can neither escape nor interpret appropriately. The reduced, yet still expressive colors in his compositions create an outstanding clarity that seems less disturbing than it has a soothing and allaying effect on the viewer. He explores the empty silence of different situations and reduces the image to the most essential details, thus forcing us to read between the lines and let ourselves dive into the situation depicted. Jarek Puczel lives and works in Olsztyn, Poland.
Johnny Robles
Biography : Miami Native Johnny Robles work is approached with a reserved, collective and methodical rationale that’s apparent in his developing collection. Creating from memories and reinterpreting them constantly, Robles’ themes derive inspiration from complex paradigms shaped or changed by nature and nostalgic visions of childhood. The impulse toward story telling in his drawings, paintings, and sculptures is set-off against the immediacy of his precise, compelling imagery. Johnny’s saturated color palette, subject matter, technique and bold themes unfold creating visual conundrums for the viewer. His attempt to explore new dimensions and forms in his work embody emotive and perceptual associations such as play, interaction, elation and control. 
Robles attended the Studio Art Center International in Florence, Italy and later the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), from where he received his BFA.
