- hidden, undiscovered, secret -

Michael W. Hall is entranced by ideas of secret worlds. He spends much of his time exploring less traveled paths, crisscrossing the US on back-roads and stealing rides on freight trains. Hall's aesthetic is informed by his extensive backgrounds in screen-printing, graffiti, and psychedelic music, while his inspiration is found hidden in shadows beneath bridges, squeezing through narrow holes in chain-link fences, and peeking from barely opened boxcar doors at a blurry country hurrying past.  The abstract work in Pathways suggests concealment, with obscured windows and possible routes into secluded places.


Hyperbola Hyperbole

- an embellished curve -

In Katy David's second solo exhibition with us, we present artworks that explore the earthy imperfections of the three-dimensional curved eggshell marked with geometric constructs and human manipulation.  These newest works push beyond the centuries-old Pysanky method and traditional Ukrainian designs that gave birth to David's earlier artworks, with her now marking the surfaces not only using wax-resist batik process but also including other methods of dying, cutting, etching, gilding and cracking – all defying the materials innate fragility.  This mark-making enhances the graceful curve, the delicate coloration and the luminous transparency of the eggshell.
