"The painting process is usually the longest since it's always fairly experimental and unknown," Coyle said.
Coyle is an AR4T veteran, having three shows prior to "The Garage" at the gallery. For this show, he decided to invite Electric Coffin artists to also display their work.
Founder Patrick "Duffy" De Armas, along with Justin Elder and Stefan Hofmann, make up Electric Coffin. Each artist brings his own unique tastes to the team, De Armas said.
Electric Coffin artists use recycled materials, like newspaper ads, car hoods and old signs, for their "panel-loge" technique, or a collage with panels.
"When you use older materials, they're more difficult because they're not perfect, but that also makes it better," De Armas said. "Starting with something that already has a history adds to the dynamic of what we're making."
Electric Coffin's styles range from Andy Warhol-inspired pieces to classic Americana art, featuring themes like hot rod cars.
De Armas said Electric Coffin and Coyle decided to combine for this show because of their close friendship.
"We've been really good friends and worked at a snowboarding and skate shop together," De Armas said. "As Brennan has grown and become more efficient, we've risen together. He thought it would be fun to do a show together. It was a good opportunity to hang out and make some art."
Coyle added, "I really like what [Electric Coffin] does with old junk. They seem to be able to find it pretty much everywhere. I got to work with them directly [for this show] and actually work on the same paintings together. It turned out to be an awesome time."
Torrey Cook, owner of AR4T, said "The Garage" has been well-received by visitors.
"The show's amazing and the work is top-notch," Cook said. "I love having Seattle artists out here in Laguna. They're just high-caliber artists."
"The Garage" is scheduled to be on display at AR4T, 210 N. Coast Hwy., until Aug. 25, but may be extended to Labor Day weekend due to its warm reception. There is no cost to view the exhibit.
AR4T is open Wednesday through Saturday from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m., or by appointment.
