Artsuite - BA Thomas - Studio Set - BA Thomas creates paintings of interiors that explore the relationship between space, time, and human experience. Her conceptually layered work encompasses ideas surrounding domesticity, psychology and the pervading and historical trope of the memento mori. However, at the heart of Thomas' painting practice is an exploration of space and perspective, which, in the process of being distorted, flattened and manipulated, begins to "break apart and behave irrationally".

BA Thomas

Greenville, NC

 

BA Thomas creates paintings of interiors that explore the relationship between space, time, and human experience. Working from the notion that the spaces we inhabit inform who we are, she studies how people use and adapt space, and how the interconnected items in a room become characters of sorts. In Thomas’ work, questions of privacy arise. The intimate becomes public, and vice versa. Source materials for her paintings are culled from online platforms, magazines, and observational drawings. These are paintings with conceptual layers, encompassing ideas surrounding domesticity, psychology and the pervading and historical trope of the memento mori.

Artsuite - Ben Alper - Untitled (Metal and Shadow) - Terrain Vague is an examination of space – both physical and psychic. Taken from the term coined by Catalan architect and historian Ignasi de Sola-Morales, terrain vague sites are those that foreground the process of construction and deconstruction and underscore the ambiguous transition from one state of “being” to another.  As a result, these spaces evoke a strong sense of being in between histories, function and time.

Chris McCaw

Chris McCaw

In 2003, artist Chris McCaw began photographing the sun with hand made cameras and paper negatives. The resulting body of work, Sunburn, tracks the sun's movement across the sky, often rendering elegant arcs and shapes depending on the camera's location on the planet, and the time of year the photograph was taken. The "sunburned" (or solarized) negatives are the result of the intensity of the sun's light and the magnification of the camera's lens. They speak elementally about time, light and our reliance on the sun, but also speak more metaphorically about photography itself. Taking from the etymology of the word "photography", Chris McCaw has created a series of "light writings" that are as beautiful as they are awe-inspiring.

Artsuite - Jeff Bell - Review - Original sculpture out of wood.  Bell's found object-based sculptural work expresses the relationship between materials and memory.

Bell’s work evolves by gathering everyday objects, deconstructing them, and creating sculptures from those elements. He ultimately aims to discover something new, but also something that reflects its previous language: a sculpture that at first glance reaffirms assumptions of commonplace objects but at further examination resists those notions and lives outside of his understanding.

Artsuite - Michael Perry - Sprezzatura: Hexagram #46 - The series of work being presented by Artsuite is based on a pointillist and primitive style. Perry has always been fascinated by the painted, copal wood carvings of Oaxaca (Alebrije) and the intricate bead and thread work of the Huichol tribes in Mexico.

Michael Perry

Durham, NC

 

As a visual artist and chef, Michael Perry is constantly emerging and re-emerging. Being self taught in both fields has presented both freedoms to explore and obstacles to overcome.

The series of work being presented by Artsuite is based on a pointillist and primitive style. Perry has always been fascinated by the painted, copal wood carvings of Oaxaca (Alebrije) and the intricate bead and thread work of the Huichol tribes in Mexico. Growing up in the Navajo and Hopi region of the southwest he took inspiration from the intricate mandalas of the sand paintings - the sand being nature's pointillist tool.

After being introduced to Manfred Schwartz's work of the 1960's at Etretat in France, Perry felt liberated. His earlier work had been primarily representative landscapes. Schwartz's work opened up for him a personalized view of nature and the environment. Perry's style and intensification became more abstract.

In a world that is complex and uncertain, Perry strives to create a point of stillness for the viewer - a moment of pause and respite.

Sarah Emerson

Roswell, GA

 

Sarah Emerson's paintings and installations present viewers with highly stylized versions of nature that combine geometric patterns and symbolic archetypes to examine our cultural landscape. In her compositions, she distorts the physical laws that govern the real world because concepts like gravity, inertia, and locality do not govern our emotional perspective of the world. Emerson does not try to replicate nature or real space, instead she uses the familiar genre of landscape to explore the collective events and conditions that define our cultural landscape. In her career, she has worked on multiple painting series' and site-specific projects that use the ‘flatness’ of painting to explore themes that reflect on the fragility of life, the futility of earthly pleasures, and the disintegration of our natural landscape. As it is presented, painting can flatten events in time, space, and memory onto one picture plane allowing room for a reconciliation of otherwise incompatible states of being.
