The Ohio Artist Registry (OAR) is an exciting opportunity for artists to share their work, connect with the creative community, and establish an online presence—all on a free, virtual platform! The OAR encourages artists working in all art forms, throughout Ohio and beyond, to create a profile, which allows them to better promote themselves and their work. Being listed in the OAR provides artists with new opportunities to share their work with clients, galleries, patrons, and audiences. A listing in the OAR does not confer an endorsement, approval, or verification by the Ohio Arts Council.

Although each of these pieces evokes very specific personal feelings and memories for me, they offer a shared experience with the viewer who engages with them. The delightful unintended consequences of each viewer’s thoughts, beliefs, prejudices, etc. superimposed onto the work creates a unique shared experience. In this way each work is both a finished piece and a living process. They look the way I talk: loud, rapid, loaded with information, provocative, a little pedantic, a little poetic, with overlapping and intersecting ideas all over the place. I’m no minimalist.
I’m an artist and designer living in a treehouse in Appalachia. Throughout my career, there has been an easy flow of ideas and techniques between my architectural and exhibit design work and my more personal art making. I now make what I call Demon Heads out of paper, first modeling the heads in the computer, then flattening the shapes into patterns which I cut out of paper and assemble edge-to-edge.
I was born and raised on the Southside of Columbus, Ohio, east of German Village. Graduate of South High School and The Ohio State University. The colorful history of Grandpa Smokey Brown, Aminah Robinson, Gilda Edwards, Richard Duarte Brown, Elijah Pierce and Queen Brooks peppered my formative years though programs that enriched my life and affinity to creativity.
Adapting the principles of Sankofa and Wabi Sabi allow me to flow between tradition and innovation. In doing so, I have mastered a process with a unique aesthetic and mastery; flowing between 2D collage and 3D assemblage using self-made images, curated medias, and found objects assigning value to each element. Respectively, the connectedness of each element requires the same process. I have developed 17 categories that outline a range of commonalities, that allow me to arrange found medias with self-made images. Through this process I seek and explore possibilities in relation to materials and application. An important aspect of my work rests in the details, where commonalities are highlighted.
By utilizing multiple disciplines, I create mixed media assemblages, collages and drawings that explore form and color unified by the spirit of black life. Art that recovers the past, secures the present and expects the future.
My name is Pavel Layer, I became interested in photography as a hobby when I was in high school in Russia. Now I call Columbus home and have continued to pursue my old time hobby on and off for almost 40 years.
I switched to digital photography 9 years ago, but was unable to fully accept it as the only tool to use, and about 7 yrs ago I came back to film and, more specifically, to medium format.
