1Maakye Schurer /Crow Beach

"I Spend My Time Experimenting To Create Real-Time Magic Realism. Nothing Is Digitally Created Or Altered. All Works Are Hand-Made In Miniature With Various Techniques Ranging From Filming Under Water To The Use Of Reflection. The Primary Motivation Behind This Approach Is Two-Fold. First: A Deep Concern For The Environment And A Belief That Our Impact Will Not Truly Change Without Genuine Heartfelt Appreciation, As Opposed To Feelings Of Guilt And Blame. Second: A Theory That Viewers Afford Greater Value To That Which Has Been Preprocessed By Another Human Being Than Truth Alone. Hence, While The Works Are Firmly Rooted In The Here And Now, Scenes Are Constructed From Memory And The Imagination. In This Way, These Works Are Highly Dramatized Nature Documentaries, Featuring The Fluttering Husks Of Human Remnants."

14Gunnar Gundersen & Julia Jacoby /Thermal Tidal Sculpture

15Elizabeth Hack /Green Meets Wave Blue

Elizabeth Hack lays down color and texture onto surfaces with a transfixed awareness that captures every detail of the hand, pen and palette knife. These “excavations” leave no stroke, line, or color unturned. The strong horizontal compositions of her “Wave Series” and corresponding series, “Wave: The Other Side” simultaneously evoke motion and stillness.

Wood burned jellyfish reliefs cut out of wood from an old barn span and climb 2 stories of a brick building.

19Matt Evald Johnson /Twist

"The urban/industrial scene has always supplied me with subject, materials, processes and narrative. Whether the work is figurative or not - whether it is two or three dimensional, the physical undertakings during artmaking mirror the intended tone of the given piece. The idea not only determines but demands that the piece be what it must. My resources, within me and without, must change with the challenge of each new work or body of work. The limitations of my intellect, body and studio are to be constantly engaged thus assuring stimulation, growth and renewal in life as well as in art."
