NATALE ADGNOT employs patterns and systems to investigate human vulnerability to dogma. Hovering between drawing and sculpture, the compositions are defined by repetitive mark-making. Each piece begins with arbitrary marks which are subsequently codified into a visual law, then broken apart and reconstructed as a three-dimensional object. Her works alternate between organic shapes and geometric forms that evoke the irregular rhythm of stalactites and stalagmites.


JODIE FLETCHER works primarily with acrylic on canvas. Her work distills abstract themes from the natural and man-made worlds. Fletcher uses strips of canvas painted with acrylic, stretched and woven over hand-crafted maple frames. The series explores the balance between organized structure and flexible elements, straddling a space between painting and sculpture.


Drawing from traditional media and second-hand fabric, KATHRYN KNUDSEN’s work recasts and reclaims everyday life into ambiguous fields of desire. The oddness of the vaguely human figures, the opalescence of the textures, the quirkiness of the colors--all of these are the lifeblood of a culture revisited.


KAL MANSUR

 

Kal Mansur is known for translucent and colorful acrylic sculptures, which he has been producing since 2006. His work is unique in its use of diffusion and concealment as compositional elements. Mansur uses solid acrylic forms combined with painted components to elicit a dialogue between atmosphere and technical composition. His sculptures are encased within translucent acrylic panels that visually change as light strikes their internal elements. The light casts internal shadows, illuminates other segments, and allows the viewer to visually travel through the spaces he composes.


 

EVAN ISHMAEL is a visual artist based in Brooklyn, NY. A background in sculpture and design allows him to explore the properties of non-traditional materials in his paintings, using soot residue from a flame as a constant. Combining experimental components with traditional techniques and a minimalist aesthetic, he elevates the functionality of everyday items to create distinctive works of art that push the boundaries of an intensively restrictive medium. Catalog images forthcoming.
