Brent Bushnell
 
Ascension © 2012

In his art, Brent investigates Metaphysics (What is real?) and Epistemology (What can we know?) through the manipulation of paint and form. “I like to lay out the painting with precision and then paint loosely and spontaneously. I use triangle, square and circle forms which have traditional symbolic meaning in metaphysical studies.”

Sofia Carmi

Sofia’s paintings are concerned with color, rhythm and movement of energy expressed in abstract forms capturing the colors of landscape memories of Jerusalem and the Bay area. They show a passion for spontaneity and deliberation. Balance is achieved through repetition of color, form and pattern. She introduces shapes with regular and irregular contours in her many color field paintings.

Jessica Eastburn
 
Monster Mash © 2012

Jessica’s work is influenced by her surroundings. As a resident of Silicon Valley, her work deals with systems of connectivity and human displacement created by the proliferation of digital technology in our culture. She creates grid-based imagery that mimics computer graphics, while eschewing digital technology to create the works by hand. While living in Portland, Oregon, a city with a huge population boom at the time, the artist was inspired to document the vestiges of the old, industrial aspects of the city before the process of gentrification completely swept them away in a wave of “modernization.” The connecting theme in Jessica’s work is an attempt to emulate her environment in order to gain perspective on the invisible systems surrounding her.

Alison Woods
 
Utopia © 2012

A resident of San Francisco, Allison is haunted by the future. “I question the way we cruise the Internet for information, like addicts looking for our next fix. Our thinking adapts to binary logic. My work unpacks the aesthetics of this information culture – one that exists in abstractions and virtual space. I use the computer to research, process, and consolidate, to create baroque geometries, to scramble and recontextualize information. I transform the digital into the tangible materiality of paint.”
