Delineation

Delineation

May 2022

Delineation is Daniel Chen's latest collection of oil paintings chronicling his travels to and memories of places like Taipei, Paris, Portland and San Francisco - places he loves and holds dear, like an old faded photograph.

The works trick the mind’s eye with their abstract geometric rendering of city- and landscapes that become more amorphous the nearer you get to them. Chen likens this to human memories, which are fallible. They hold hard engrained truths that often become hazy and blurred through time.

Analog

Analog

May 2022

Analog is an artist's visual chronicle of the swinging tides of the global pandemic. Daniel Chen did not cope well in the beginning, living alone and consumed by negative thoughts compounded by the news cycle and societal upheaval. He attempted to numb himself through a fog of escape but the more he curtailed his inner dialog, the louder it became.

This collection of paintings exhibits his personal journey through shelter-in-place, and his eventual acceptance of things that are out of his control. Chen created each of the paintings with a set grid, which he used to study color, balance, and cadence. The body of work is a progression of emotions that shift from darkness to light.

Note: Analog was originally scheduled for 2021 but canceled due to unforeseen circumstances. We present it alongside his 2022 exhibition, Delineation.

Visual Indulgence

Visual Indulgence

April 2022

Visual Indulgence is a foray into color and process with paintings by Ingrid V. Wells and Heather Robinson that are simultaneously playful and serious; simple and complex. Vibrant patterns are immediately inviting yet crafted through a deliberate and extensive process that involves modeling, masking, layering and more.

Wells' work in this series, titled Spectacle, begins as still-life decoden, composed of tiny plastic objects undulating in fake frosting and sparkles, that are manipulated and enlarged into bright, bold oil paintings. The feminine imagery investigates American pop culture aesthetics of joy as simultaneously oppressive and empowering.

Robinson’s work is from her series called “Pattern Seeking” which seeks optimism in times of increasing chaos and uncertainty. Her goal is to evoke positive emotion through repeating textile patterns in multiple layers that are meditative, soothing and satisfying, representing the push and pull of order and disorder.

Unnatural Selection

Unnatural Selection

February 2022

With Unnatural Selection, Robert Bowen presents a new body of work addressing his unanswered questions about biomimicry and the sanctity of nature. He continues to play mad scientist in a laboratory that should never really exist, fusing high technology with nature. To juxtapose these prophetic tragedies, he has also painted a series of creatures with a precious stone/gem element, based on the concept that people should protect nature in the same way they safeguard their most prized jewels.

Little Wonders

December 2021

Little Wonders is a collection of small-scale works by 11 of our exhibiting artists. Accustomed to producing larger work — some on walls up to 6 stories tall — these artists are also able to translate their style and craft to smaller surfaces, a skill that is sometimes underestimated.
