The Drifters


Hippies are drifters, bikers are drifters, migratory birds are drifters, hobos are drifters, jelly fish are drifters, rain clouds are drifters and even words are drifters. Can art drift? Is drifting a style? Yes.
Drifters live in the moment, they create from pure instinct without hidden agendas or pretension and if they have a message it's simply "let go".

Bios:

Dawn Riddle
-Lives in San Francisco, but is know through out Portland from the band Sour Grapes and just being a sweet person who like to ride bikes and share cookies and coffee with friends. Her last art show in Portland was at Half & Half, every piece was spoken for before the show opened. Dawn works with paint, thread, construction paper and whatever it takes to honestly and clearly speak of how humans can swim with sharks, whales and other creature from the deep. The secret is to drift with them.


Matthew Feyld
-(aka Driftwould) Is Canadian working out of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (home of Olympia brewing). Driftwould's work is world-renowned due to his pleasant web presents on Flickr and train murals. He uses pen, paper, watercolor, and acrylics to create "a world where both human, and animal share more than just their boots." Driftwould's use of posturing and icons reminds us that we all want to be simple again, we want to live in this moment.


The Reverend Benny Bob- Lives in a small cabin above the Siletz River near Kernville, Oregon. The Reverend cuts his own firewood, and eats clams, guts and all if he has to, when he isn't hiking streams following salmon for the Department of Fish and Wildlife. In his humble cabin he has mastered ceramics, wood, ink, graphite, sewing and painting. Once a month The Reverend drives his beat-up truck to Portland to show his artwork to folks on the sidewalks in the big city. His life and work are solid representations of content budda-like action.
