passion for plein air painting is evident in her classically inspired
pieces. Holly Cunningham's attention to color is translated into conceptual
abstractions that capture her own environment in a special and timeless way.
Kallop’s recent paintings are an exploration of geometry, dimensionality, color and
pattern. Her application of thin washes of paint to the canvas generates a colorful
grid that serves as an underpainting. This armature gives way to the creation of the
geometric forms and complex patterns that interact energetically with the layers of paint beneath. This accumulation of color and form is systematic and precise, harmonious and balanced. These paintings reveal Kallop’s long-standing interest in math and science, as well as her affection for a wide variety of artistic traditions such as tantra drawing, textile practices and modernist painting. Kallop is particularly inspired by the work of abstract painters Emma Kunz, Hilma af Klint
and Agnes Martin. She believes in the spiritual power of art, and hopes that in today’s turbulent world her paintings will offer a quiet moment of calm introspection.

Jason Trotter is an emerging artist known for his bold geometric abstracts rendered in acrylics. Trotter employs a hard-edge painting technique that produces sharp lines with abrupt transitions between color areas.

Humor plays an important role in my work. I often use it as a device to bring attention to more critical issues. Over the course of my artistic career I have found that creating humorous objects often breaks down barriers and allows for the beginning of an open and genuine dialog between my art, the audience and myself. In this way, humor transforms my personal experience into something universal.
Mark Boomershine’s paintings merge the crisp vitality of pop art with the regal finesse of portraiture. Through his techniques, the viewer is able to experience a total immersion in the multidimensional quality of each piece.
Mike Hansel is a fine art sculptor who uses welded sculptures as a means of pointing people away from what they take for granted toward an oddly humorous world composed of vaguely familiar elements. They are re-invented associations made between careful observations and the half-forgotten elements of memory.
Hansel says, “I attempt to distort traditional assumptions relating to function while also suggesting a conceptual relationship between life and industry. My primary method is to create industrial looking forms, which serve only aesthetic purposes. This contrasting relationship between hard and soft forms is the basic component of how I interpret things visually. Their interaction is, in one way or another the overriding concept in all of the objects I have made. Each piece, I think, tells a slightly different story. Some suggest a tranquil association between two very different components. Others allude to machines that can manipulate organic things and sometimes biomorphic forms start to take on mechanical characteristics. All of them attempt to illustrate the sense of irony that seems to exist when forms are separated from their function.”
