ArtZone 461 Gallery is happy to present recent paintings by Stan Washburn in the Side Gallery.  He says his work is drawn from daily life, but with adjustments:  His interiors, for example, seldom represent any real place.  "I notice the parts of the world that suggest formal elements that intrigue me - certain patterns of light and dark and color, certain surfaces and textures and brushstrokes."  A gentle humor the artist finds appealing is shared by a portrayal of nude gallery-goers, but in the context of art it makes a sort of sense.

Washington believes the potential for art is everywhere, but some subjects are more engaging than others. "These predispositions and their technical expression are what constitute style: the part of the process that an artist doesn't rethink each time. Style comes from personality and experience-from history, from ancestors. It all gets very tangled and complex. If it were less so, the results would be much less interesting."
