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!

The music is staying in for now but The Repressions will still be sharing it!

Dear Friends,

As we all know, the world is in a great state of unease. New York City is just one little part of that, and staying as safe as we can is all we do for today.

Our shows have all been postponed, so we will be playing online, sharing our interview series, making and sharing artwork, comics and memes, live streaming, with other bands and artists and friends, and doing what we can. Please see our youtube channel, instagram and facebook page for daily content (links are above.) We are grateful for that chance, grateful for each other, and grateful for you.

Luna the Mooncat is very happy right now, because The Repressions are staying at their castle and she gets even more attention than usual! Love to all of you and the animals!

-Barbara and Nate

Best Original Song! We Are The Strange Ones

The Repressions are so very honored to have won Best Original Song in the February Vegan Music Makers celebration, for their song “We Are the Strange Ones!”

Vegan Music Makers is a wonderful uplifting community founded in California by Geno Maurillo and Michael Blow. Find and follow the group on Facebook, and add these other artists to your playlist!

This means a lot, voted from a group of musical artists from all genres and walks of life, with the one common thread being a respect for animals and their freedom. Good company and very good music!

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.
