Nicole Abbett

brings together a past and present, inspired by a history forgotten, yet memorialized through the photograph.

Kendra Bailey

takes images from popular American culture and transforms them with a sense of spirituality using the cues from mass media as a way to critique the importance popular images has on our society.

Jonathon Cornell

uses various approaches in printmaking techniques as a means to blend old world religious motifs and iconography with the contemporary characters and current issues revealing both religion's viability and interchangeability within multiple cultures.

Danielle DeRosa

using paper as her medium, she creates fantastical creatures that question the ethics of animal genetic manipulation.

Andrew Foy

explores spatial relationships through idealized landscapes that imply an inherant sense of time as the layers of resin function like an encased tomb.

Joseph Frontel

combines animation and 2-dimensional collage to reflect on his experience growing up and living in the retirement capitol of the world, Florida. He represents the generation gap between the young and old through the use of sociocultural generalities and pop culture references.

Leah Harrison

is a digital photographer who creates mysterious images of young women in interior windows; the light shining on them acts as a catalyst revealing inner psychological turmoil.

Linzi Lloyd

creates digital composite imagery that addresses the conflict merging the human body with technological elements questioning the notion of a future enhanced by developing technologies.

Timothy J McMillan

assembles found materials to create surrealistic sculptures of mythical origins re-imagined to fit contemporary gender roles.

Marisa Meale

paints detailed portraits of young girls in beauty pageants exploring this bizarre pastime and the dynamic it sets up between mother and daughter.

Lisa Noss

explores light in its physical and spiritual presence by using a compression of photographs of the direct light source itself.

Anthony Powell

creates structural forms inspired by Asian architecture where parts of the artist's background are identified with the use of porcelain ceramics as the medium to present a narrative to the viewer.

Lindsay Scoggins

derives great pleasure from abducting viewers from the harness of their own reality. She has a fascination with the little moments in film when the sound and imagery perfectly coalesce.
