Episode 2 – Artist Sage Cotignola

Episode 2 of Five Questions with The Repressions is on Youtube now! Sage is a wonderful artist and illustrator ~ hear her answers to our silly questions and see a few of her paintings at the end of the video.

Sage Cotignola is an artist that The Repressions greatly admire, who creates lush storytelling and emotionally evocative work in a signature style. The Repressions were so glad to attend her exhibition at Greenpoint Gallery in Brooklyn in February 2020 and get the chance for an interview. A few paintings are shown at the end of this video, but do visit her website for the full gallery~ it is a visual feast! Find and follow her!

Sage usually paints in gouache on watercolor paper or on wood. She revels in the over-the-top and the unusual. She’s inspired by mythology, folktales, Medieval painting, Japanese woodblock prints, and the more surprising aspects of everyday life.

Thanks to Zack Dash for filming!

Fearless

The Repressions recently traveled to Florida, stood in the ocean, ate amazing vegan food in four different cities, played a few songs at Dada in DelRey, and found this very fine street art in Wynwood, Miami.

Fear is a wild instinctual safeguard, protector and burden depending on the day… We are learning to be okay with it.

Friday January 31st at The Dolphin 🐬! Music from the Forest, the City and the Sea…

This Friday is going to be very special… The Dolphin Bookshop has a magic that surrounds you before you realize it. The Repressions will  play in the stage/ seating/cafe area, with a beautiful bookshop to the right, more books and toys to the left, original art and color all around… It is not just “one” kind of place, and therefore inspiring and imperceptibly comfortable. No cover charge and all ages are welcome… The music begins at 7pm!

New Memes, Artwork & Comics for You

The Repressions Castle, to the mortal eye may look like a tiny NYC apartment, but it is a one stop art house… too bad the ideas come faster than the time it takes to finish them. Enjoy some new memes, comics and song lyric illustrations…
