In Devis and Saints, Richard Heipp explores the interplay between artifact, artwork, and presentation, particularly as rendered by reliquaries. "I am fascinated by the macabre beauty and strangeness represented in these beautiful, intricate, devotional sculptural objects,” says Heipp. “I find reliquaries present an intriguing subject that questions issues surrounding belief, faith, and our value systems.”
In Looking For Gravity, each artist seeks to first uncover the hidden forces that weigh on the world around them, then render them into a visual narrative that explores the relationship between identity and place.
Fragile Horizon is a feeling Jeremiah Jossim has for the future, a reference to the precarious state of our relationship with the land. Jossim has produced a series of paintings over the last year, that express deep reverence for his time spent in less human spaces and in the alternative nature of camping. This collection revels in the joy of observing, and in the quietness of a moment. It is an idealized and abstracted body of work; every element of the picture plane is shifted into patterns. Some geometric in nature and others resembling topographical maps and geological strata.
