Hanna Washburn’s soft sculptures sag and bulge in shapes that reference human anatomy. Their plush forms grow almost organically from clothing, furniture, and found objects. Hanna’s work is focused on associations; the materials she uses come from objects with previous stories told in fabrics that come from domestic interiors (upholstery, gingham table cloths, curtains) and the sculptures she creates blend the feminine, grotesque, maternal, modest, and sexual.
Is there something prophetic about Saskia Fleishman's name? Because...pardon us for the terrible pun but her landscapes are fully fleshy. In a twist of fate, fluid and ethereal things like cloud or waves of the sea have been built up with sand, while backgrounds of striking techicolor recede away from the material world.
Gyan Shrosbree revels in her material. Like a third grader’s confidence outfit, her artwork weaves together bold color combos and a little bit of glitter in multimedia textile-like works. Gyan works intuitively and never on one piece at a time. Moving back and forth between works in a series, she carries out marks and movements while bouncing from one to the next, keeping the series related and each unique piece from being overworked into overcomplicated shreds. Most importantly, her process ensures that she continues to have fun and is connected to her art, which draws on the colorful moments of her everyday life.
Katie’s mixed-media paintings burst out from two-dimensional space in smears of concrete and swirls of neon color. After the first three seconds of trying to identify an object and failing, you’ll be inclined to smell, touch, and listen to these sites left behind by some mysterious encounter. Are the two circular marks in Katie’s FOMO series dinosaur footprints or the result of someone angrily punching at a slab of clay (my friend who makes ceramics does this…)? Prehistoric or Gen-Z? Wild moss or silica gel beads? Pools of magma or ketchup and mustard? You tell me.
Ryan transforms the cardboards you may throw away without much thought into colorful architectural miniatures. Despite the playful variation in depth, form, and color, the parts in her reliefs magically fit together. Does that remind you of anything? I’m thinking New York City’s way of combining like 10 different eras in one block.
Painter, sculptor, and musician Ryan Patrick Martin is one of those rare people who creates his own reality - one of playfully strange objects and environments. His works are often informed by an interest in sound synthesis, movement, vibrancy, multi-sensory experiences and an endless search to find humor and harmony in the slop.
