Nelson E. Enríquez: No Status
May 21st - June 25th , 2016
Opening Reception May 21st, 6PM-9PM
"We live in a time of unprecedented change, driven by constant technological advancement that is manifest in every aspect of our society. As we look towards a future of near limitless virtual exchange of information, our present world of physical structures accelerates towards the past.
Working primarily in photography, my art practice acts as a mechanism through which I search for the physical imprint of these unceasing revolutions and the residue of the stresses that result. In the process, I find myself sorting through the landscape of a past that is being steadily overwritten, a present that continues to consume, and a future that is uncertain. These ruined pillars serve as monument, or perhaps memorial, to an embodied future that is already obsolete."

"I enjoy paintings that are elusive and ambiguous and I attempt to emulate that approach. I work through the rational side first, letting that run its course. As that begins to resolve, I begin to work. My success depends largely on how well I execute this transition.
Eventually the physical work begins. At this point the interplay between the paint and the surface become the focus. Finally, the work is completed much in the way it began, with long periods of observation, occasionally punctuated by simple but critical interactions."

Jeffrey Thompson - Recent Works: Painting and Collage
March 4th - April 23rd 2017
Opening Reception March 4th 6-9pm
These new works by Jeffrey Thompson examine the space that exists between the personal and the public. Thompson limits the emotional and social influences, focusing instead on the interplay between paint and surface, resulting in work that is elusive yet interactive in character.
