Originally based in L.A., the duo recently relocated to Portland, Oregon to continue their work in animation and fine art. Current visual aesthetics turn a macro view on the natural world, lending an intimate look at elements like butterfly wings, fish scales, and bird feathers. Their paintings are complimented with ornately carved wood silhouettes and hand-hewed frames, melding organic and earthy design elements with clean, chic presentation. Staying true to their firmly rooted natural feel, the pieces are designed and crafted using recycled materials and wood harvested from sustainable resources.
Klein and Woolley initially formed as the musical/visual duo of Billygoat, producing animated art films and performing their live, original scores. The films have been described as "stop-motion shorts of staggering complexity," created one tiny movement at a time via tens of thousands of individual photographs of an ever-morphing art piece. These photos are then stitched together to become an elaborately detailed and captivating art film, bringing their other-worldly aesthetic to life

Ruth Lantz approaches painting with the knowledge of unknowing. She creates images without an immediately identifiable context, but an ambiguous and shifting understanding. Through the combination of space photography, slide cultures, and x-ray imagery Lantz enables the viewers to re-discover unknown realities. She applies multiple thing layers of acrylic paint to build up luminosity, creating both pictorial depth and a distant surface. Through this process Lantz creates an image in constant flux, searching for both its beginning and its end.
