Noel W. Anderson

Noel W. Anderson is known for his explorations into the evolving makeup of black male identity as seen through the lens of American media.
Woven from images of basketball players, Anderson's three new textiles explore the relationship between sports and protest.
The appropriated photos are warped and distorted, then woven into jacquard tapestries that are subsequently bleached, unraveled and distressed to the point that these recognizable figures slip into abstraction.

Mark Barrow & Sarah Parke

Mark Barrow and Sarah Parke's collaborative practice explores the logic of weaving and its relationship to visual and digital systems of art making.
The artists will debut a new series of paintings on hand-loomed and embroidered fabric, works on paper, and wallpaper.
The bird patterns incorporated into these works are partly inspired by the art historical use of the motif as a cultural barometer for society at large.

Barnett Cohen

Barnett Cohen's use of common language and imagery found on stickers is a reflection of how American society expresses particular notions of identity and desires to make it more visible.
He researches and collects thousands of stickers, which are cut and applied to the surface of the canvas between several layers of polycote, which creates a smooth, uniform surface.
The stickers are layered densely on top of one another into compositions that reflect a cacophony of positions and messaging, from the political to the social to the economic.

Athena LaTocha

Athena LaTocha explores the relationships between the natural world and humans' impact upon it. Her work is inspired in part by her Native American heritage, her upbringing in rural Alaska, and minimal and conceptual Earthworks artists of the 1960s and 1970s.
Her practice is influenced by human intervention upon the earth, a reworking of the natural world. LaTocha's sweeping abstractions are created using earth-toned inks, soil, and industrial solvents that she applies to the surface using tools such as tire shreds, scrap metal, and bricks.

Lucia Love

Lucia Love's visually rich paintings are loaded with narrative and symbolism, with references to art history, mythology, politics, and the dynamics of power.
Like works of speculative fiction, each painting contains a pastiche of fantasy and reality, as elements sourced from news media exist on an equal plane to those of pure imagination.
The juxtaposition of doom and hope depicted in the works feels particularly poignant at this distinct moment in American society.

Samantha Rosenwald

Samantha Rosenwald's latest works were made during a period of intense wildfires in her home state of California earlier this year and use the flame motif for two distinct, symbolic readings.
Her medium of choice, colored pencil on canvas, emphasizes the sense of mania that feels present in her subject matter.
By threading together contemporary culture, visual puns and the dogmas of art history, she creates absurd, personal and darkly funny portraits which illustrate what it feels like to be alive.
