Work by four artists is featured. Claire Cowie’s dreamlike imagery deals with imaginary worlds and the conflation of memory and reality. Through the observation of the inside and outside world, things are altered by the act of being observed. Drawing from playful and dark images, Cowie presents an exploration of fiction vs. truth. Franc Guerrero’s referential but not overt erotic imagery explores the age-old history of painting’s notions of voyeurism. By referencing artists before him, Guerrero creates “thank you notes”, continuing the dialogue between the viewer and the person being viewed. Dan Shafer’s graphic images merge the use of text and image in order to explore the notion of memory, both personal and collective. Inspired by personal experiences of family, faith and community, Shafer reflects on universal experiences by playing with the notion of fiction and reality. Danila Rumold’s perceptions of the inner and outer landscapes manifest in the shape of lights and darks, and the medium of paint and graphite on paper. Through mediation of material, Rumold empties out thought in exchange for the discovery of the fleeting feeling tones and the discovery of the reality of how things are in the moment.
