Join us for our fall exhibitions featuring Alisa Henriquez, Gavin Benjamin, Eva Kwong, Scott Goss and the late Kirk Mangus.
Alisa Henriquez combines digital images drawn from popular media culture, art history, and autobiographical sources with a host of materials including paint, resin, glitter, and synthetic hair and
fur. Recurring motifs such as heavily mascaraed eyes, glossed lips, hair, and images of the body tap on encoded meanings and myths, conjuring ideas of female fertility, sexuality, and desire, albeit through an often media biased lens.
Gavin Benjamin combines original analog photography and appropriated images with collage, paint, and varnish to create rich and luxurious works that call back to baroque traditions while incorporating elements of current culture to provoke, critique, and explore.
The current work of Eva Kwong features hand-built and 3D printed forms in clay and PLA. Her lifelong interest in the intersection of the art and science of the natural world provides the conceptual framework and visual vocabulary for her compelling, colorful organic forms in sculpture, installations and vessels.
Through projected light onto found objects, this current project of Scott Goss explores themes of urban design, architecture and entropy, to create a narrative of how cities rise and fall
over time.
Kirk Mangus’ murals, works in clay, on paper, in wood, and other media pull from a rich and diverse set of influences: ancient Greco-Roman art,
mythology, Japanese woodblock prints, comic books, folk stories, from Meso-American through Middle Eastern and Asian ceramic traditions as well as the people he saw, the places he travelled, and his own dreamworld.
