Emma Balder

October 26th, 2019

Emma Balder’s fiber paintings breathe new life into the smallest parts of textile waste, reassigning the fibers as a medium that functions like graphite or paint. Color, form and line work together to shape a new reality for these neglected parts. This culmination of visual elements alludes to the process of transformation: linework and form revealing the product of time, change, and new growth, while the emphasis of color and texture delineates stories of the past.

Janelle Anderson

September 21st, 2019

Janelle W. Anderson creates paintings and drawings that that relate to memory, consciousness, dreams, perception of time, and the human condition.
