Pearl Beerhorst and Ryan Brady create scenes of implied mythologies or yet unfinished folklore, mixing unidealized landscapes with unexpected combinations of human and animal subjects. The soft colors and generous detailing of their drawings and paintings are inviting and familiar, though the content is often much more curious. Their work covers a complex emotional palette, at once containing beauty, melancholy, innocence, darkness, intrigue and whimsy.
