      Detailed Description : Jessica’s work is a response to, and experimentation with, materials. Her inspiration comes from nature; she is constantly amazed by the diversity and beauty of the forms and patterns she sees. We often think of our immediate surroundings as being “man-made”, but man-made materials still behave according to the same principles as the natural world. Because nature is based on patterns and principles of organization, Jessica looks for man-made materials that might be manipulated according to similar patterns and principles. In her response to these materials—learning how they behave under different circumstances and combinations, discovering how to re-order and pattern them, intuitively pursuing new forms and pushing materials beyond how one would normally think of them—she becomes connected with the physical properties of the world. In changing books into fossilized remnants of our culture through the installations “Bibliophylum” and “Cerebral Mapping” Jessica examines how we classify the world and tells her own natural history. In the “Erosions” or “Soft Cell Tissue” sculptures, she elegantly arranges static PVC pipes to suggest ripple and wave patterns and uses toilet paper to show us the parallel cellular or micro level of nature. The PVC pipes reflect and absorb light and are dynamic and ever changing. The Soft Cell Tissue sculptures are playful and surprising. Manufactured goods appear as natural objects in Jessica’s work. Something functional becomes decorative, a simple material is made complex and the commonplace becomes unique. This is exemplified in her “Implement” series where Jessica takes the ubiquitous #2 pencil and transforms it into sculptures that reference fossils, birds or botanic materials. They are engaging, dynamic and startling. Jessica’s interests in archaeology, paleontology, biology, botany and geology influence not only the shapes and textures of her sculpture, but also lend a visual framework for

      “Presents: Three Months of Mail Art for Hyperallergic”, Hyperallergic, New York, New York – June 2011
      Detailed Description : Brian Dupont’s text-based paintings focus on how the visual aspects of information are conveyed within the framework of abstract painting. He uses snippets of found text including President Obama’s birth certificate, Richard Serra’s verb list, tweets and writings by Samuel Beckett and Thomas Pynchon. His recent work addresses the visual possibilities inherent in language. Working in oil on metal, Brian uses techniques of high art and common signage in an attempt to further engage the viewer. His recent work experiments with painting as a three-dimensional object. By projecting the painting into the space of the viewer, but keeping the painted planes flat, he forces the viewer to reassess his relation to both the text and object. The text is distorted,reversed and repeated with odd kerning and shifts in scale, so that the act of reading is transformed into looking.

      Detailed Description : Alison Rash’s recent body of paintings seeks to pare down elements to their most essential forms. She moves fluidly between intention and surrender to get at a quiet understanding of line, form and color. Using facets of her life, like an anecdote, she creates an initial system. Casual marks gain significance and interact with one another in the compositions, becoming anything but accidental. At times the small, seemingly unimportant events become the most meaningful moments.

      Detailed Description : Architectural, mathematical, mechanical, the work of Alan Steele employs a variety of systems that are diverse. His pieces showcase an exacting and intellectual pursuit of ideas arising from post minimalism. Alan uses different techniques of mark-making, lettering, and drawing in piecing together his refined and exquisite works on paper. Some of the systems Alan employs include a “doorway like” image or portal, planes of color with intricate labyrinths of lines and repetition, grids using text and typography. For Alan there is no no beginning and no end but an infinite continuum. While the paintings are small in size, there is a monumentality both in their visual impact and in their concept. Alan utilizes fragmentation to deliberately create a sense of disruption and completeness in his art.

      “Chris Trueman,” Peggy Phelps Gallery, Claremont Graduate University, Claremont, CA, February
      Detailed Description : If machines could dream, their visions would look like Chris Trueman’s paintings, whose layers mingle in ways that are at once alchemical and mechanical. His bold pieces are overlaid with lines and grids that reflect back on the viewer to process the underlying gestural painting. Chris combines forces between hard-edge lines and organic fields of color that occupy his expansive, immersive canvases. Sharp edged lines propel fields of color with such urgency that the strokes are nearly vibrating. Paintings recall noir stories, architecture, sci-fi films, unbridled by the restrictions of reality. Chris earned his MFA from Claremont Graduate University in 2010, graduating with a concentration in Painting. While at CGU he was the recipient of numerous awards
