Hugh Cannon Reliquaries, a series of oil paintings
"The images I create draw heavily from the nostalgic, the decorative and the devotional. They result from the diaspora of raising a child in a culture outside of my own. Pieced together memories mythologized and juxtaposed against the new, my work explores the loop between past and present while at the same time documenting the intensely personal and the everyday."
Jennifer Chua Always Petal by Petal, an installation of glass and porcelain
"I have been reflecting upon the nature of productivity, and the nuanced relationship between effort and value. As part of this investigation on what "counts" as work, I have been repeating a single small gesture: one hand gently presses into the other with a minimal amount of porcelain, leaving a faint impression of a simple, discrete act. An accumulated mass of thousands of delicate porcelain pieces created through the same soothing, repetitive process, Always Petal by Petal is an affirmation that small actions can have big impact."
Tom Walker Sequence, a series of acrylic paintings
"Sequence is a series of acrylic paintings that are directly influenced by our perceptions of color and depth from digital mediums. By utilizing chromostereopsis, a phenomenon in optics that can only occur on a flat surface and gives the illusion of depth through unique chromatic relationships, this body of work bridges the notions of depth and flatness within contemporary painting and demonstrates the influence that digital mediums play on these impressions."
