Presenting New Work, art by Joan Stuart Ross & Kappy Trigg.
Joan's current series builds up layers of encaustic medium as metaphors for energy, introspection and depth. In a process similar to intaglio, the grids and interstices of color-filled carved lines create an atmosphere underneath and between suspensions of wax, resin and color. Kappy's new works layer surfaces of acrylic paint on panels to create a lacquer-like density, a luminous glow. Interspersed are dabs of color that relate to the idea of foul bite in etching--random marks and glyphs engage to create a mysterious narrative.

Justin Kane Elder simplifies images by deconstructing them into basic geometric shapes with the goal of constructing a complex design out of simple forms. Each piece focuses on individual colors and how those colors relate to the space they inhabit. Colors are piled together to create a network of corresponding objects. These objects are what make each composition identifiable.
