Dark explores the intricacies and complications of time travel when handed to the wrong beings, aka humans. As humans, we are often emotional, selfish, and make terrible decisions. Now add time travel to this and you get chaos. This collection is inspired by THAT chaos: mind-boggling, brain-melting chaos that you just can’t resist.

An oscillator is a circuit that produces a repeated alternating waveform by converting electronic signals. Simply put, they generate and convey information, a theme that Brittany Kieler explores the limits of in her art as she delves into the inherent mysticism of human history. Electronics (or anything having to do with oscillators themselves) don't appear in her work at all, but her wavy line art is reminiscent of what one sounds like... if that oscillator became sentient and tried to teach philosophy. Waveform next to waveform, her black and white lithographic lines meld into organic shapes that are almost familiar (and some that are not).
History always has a funny way of catching up to us, Guerra seems to make sure of that. The historical context that he intimately experienced in Cuba and in the diversity of New York City is mixed with the now, giving the viewers the constant message that liberation starts from the body. Gender stereotypes along with racial stereotypes that are perpetuated by long standing societal structures are also taken for a fresh spin, while playing with its past meanings.
Camilla Webster is not only a painter, but a best selling author and TED speaker whose creative enterprises have led her to success in many disciplines. Her artwork floats emotions and themes of current events in her emphatic abstractions. Camilla’s painterly style is guided by her previous work as a writer, evoking a narrative discourse within the textural lines of her body of work.
In a world that creates shiny new things just so they can go obsolete, Jen discovers old, abandoned, or neglected things gone sinister. Throughout works that vary in palette from rainbow neons to worn out neutrals, from panoramic scenes of lake gatherings to close-ups of fences, there shouldn't be anything outwardly unsettling. If anything, Jen's use of fine lines and matter-of-fact realism inspired by photography should make these objects familiar. But the unsettling effect arises from finally facing these usually unseen, even deprecated, things - we had forgotten them so profoundly that there is no way to make sense of them.
Combining black and white photography and collage, Adrienne’s unique perspective uses urban backdrops to create abstract shapes. Hand-cut-and-assembled, her collages are anything but static, with texture and layering emphasizing their handmade quality. The complex, layered nature of Adrienne’s practice subtly blends fragmented photographs into geometric forms.
