'Walking gives us a chance to slow down, for our thoughts to catch up with us. Walking is also a way to for us to connect to the neighborhoods we live in. Walking makes it easier to meet people; to stop and look around. In life, scenes exist as a memory—a meditation of the past and what is to come. Painting requires me to slow down—like walking through my neighborhood.' - Dyer

Flora's work is currently dancing within this loop: from object that creates performance, to performance that creates sculpture, to sculpture that creates still image, to still image as archive of an object. Wilds uses clothing, textiles, accessories, words, research, Instagram, my body, systems of movement, and sometimes industrial materials. I am often thinking about the commodification of femininity, digital excesses, the archival gaze, formal/conceptual responses to Minimalism, working out, growing up in Southern California, and popular culture of the 2000s.

Using Oils, India Ink, Gouache and Installation / Event Production, Hockenos explores ideas of shape-shifting, transformation, masks and identity. Through vibrant visual narrative, sometimes parabolic, at other times more abstruse, she takes her experiences and surroundings and weaves them into a personal mythology, a cannon of stories that has been developing throughout her life and that she employs to better understand the world around her. She is interested in human relationships (intimate, erotic, platonic, professional etc.) and in the push and pull, the tension of these relationships. Hockenos lives and works in Los Angeles, California.

Oil, acrylic, mixed technique on wood panel
King's work explores the detritus of our artificial world in relation to nature. with the departure from figurative and attempt at realism his new work abandons most of the literal and uses mark making, shape, and color to create abstract clutter whilst integrating reference to a familiar object. His work attempts to divulge the inevitable artificiality in the natural landscape. investigating the concept of all material objects eventually returning to the earth, that even life can come from what once was merely discarded debris. These color fields become ethereal and surreal in what can only be described as playful and joyous. even though the subject may have a dark and serious message, his delivery is colorful and bright, his mark- uncanny and digestible. .

'My artwork has come from memories of summers spent leaping and diving, doing cannonballs and back flips, participating in breath holding contests and looking up through chlorine filtered sunlight daydreaming. In water, we become weightless, buoyant and free both in mind and body. As a competitive swimmer and Psychologist for most of my life, these are elements I consciously integrate into my work. Using found objects, paint and photographs, I create nostalgic paintings of the past I carry with me into the present.' - Morgan

Acrylic on canvas
'Konorebi is derived from the Japanese verb Komorebi. Komorebi describes a very specific type of lighting and translates to, when light shines through leaves on trees in a forest. I chose to base my name from komorebi for a few reasons. First, I love traditional Japanese culture, especially the way it honors nature and simplicity. I also find it humbling and fascinating that there are words in cultures other than my own that do not directly translate to English. Finally, my art is visual. We would not be able to use our vision to see art without light. To me lighting is everything. When I am in a forest and see komorebi, those angel-like rays create a magical feeling inside of me. This feeling is what I strive to recreate for people viewing my art. This is why I chose the name Konorebi.' - Bruhn
