Doug Billings

Speaking as an artist, I strive to create images based on my experiences, which in turn, function as symbolic, pictorial interpretations of the world that I live in. Since I am basically a printmaker; I tend to be very process oriented and enjoy the technical challenges of producing hand pulled original prints. However, I have […]

Aaron M. Brown

The human presence is a fragile and evolving construct. It is a mystery unto itself, a secretive combination of impulses and directives, a paradox that animates flesh and bone. It is the power source around which my work revolves. In many of my paintings, the figure is set in the midst of a tableau that […]

I have always been a bit of a dreamer, intrigued by the contrast between the plan and the real. And I dream about possibilities. I’ve lived a few places and visited a few more, and from long ago I remember being intrigued by the vernacular forms of different peoples and places. I’m interested in the […]

Amber Hansen

The practice of drawing allows me to create a lucid space that is beyond my own intellectual understanding, a space where I can see my own thoughts and imaginings fashioned into new symbols and meanings. I draw to learn; I draw to understand; I draw to remember. In the process of making work these three […]

Matthew Hilyard

Like many artist I take from life’s experiences and surroundings and inform that in my work in some way. When I begin I take verbatim the past and the history of what I see in my studio space and take that information as inspiration. I’m attempting to slow down my thinking process in these new […]

  Life is about the relationship between every existence. This relationship has many forms, which is not only between different existences but also the past and present of a single existence.  This flow connects in time and space, creating an imaginary form. The imaginations of different things can then intersect with each other, leaving one […]

Jodi Lightner

My work explores the relationship between our environment and ourselves as being both physical and perceived. I consider that a place must coexist with what we are thinking, imagining and sensing. As we experience structure through our lens of knowledge and understanding we perceive what is not present. Looking beyond the physical or obvious, I […]

Marcelyn McNeil

My work is both formal and idiosyncratic. I identify simple clear forms that embody assertiveness, a kind of peculiarity, and vulnerability at once. The masses I describe have a way of being both flat and dimensional and I continually think about sculpture while I paint. The works often are a hybrid of structure, architecture, and […]

Kevin Mullins

My work is an attempt to illustrate transcendence.  I believe that repetition is the foundation of clarity.  The use of repeated patterns in my work serves the same function that a mantra does in meditation.  I employ, screen-printing, traditional and non-traditional paint application, to give the work the appearance of being mechanically reproduced.  For me […]

Michael Pointer

This work explores the boundaries and relationship between photography and painting. I produce photo based images that are anchored in the reality of photography with the extended metaphor of painting. I want the viewer to be aware of the surface of the photographic paper,  the same as paint on canvas. The work is an invitation […]

Debra Smith

Debra M. Smith’s markedly formalist work is created through an intuitive approach. Her work involves the overlapping of vintage silk fabric, primarily deconstructed Japanese kimonos, stitched together to form bold geometric abstractions. She incorporates opaque and transparent fabrics, which create an interplay of masked and obscured areas that add a dimensionality to the work. While […]

Tim Stone

In my work, the places depicted are representations of somewhat unimportant suburban scenes from everyday life.  It is important for me to find ways to disassociate from the mundane.  To become comfortable one must believe that things don’t change because ideas aren’t questioned; this is destructive and detrimental to progress and growth of any kind […]

Levente Sulyok

My work articulates certain cultural and philosophical conditions through a playful dialogue between forms of commerce and the language of art. Each work is a reductive expression of a nexus of ideas. (2012) My latest body of work springs from a collection of financial slogans collected over the years from institutions connected to the 2008 […]

Johnny Sutton

Behold fishing boats, gondolas, the mascareta and sandolo with fresh eyes, as you have not seen them before.  Reassembled from scores of nuanced shifts in the camera position, these meticulously staged perspectives are successive combinations – bracketed exposures along a linear hand held aerial reach.  Johnny Sutton has called upon his skill as a painter, […]
