KIMERLEE CURYL




“Wild Mustangs. Without them, the great west was not possible. We traveled, explored, and built this land by holding onto their manes and riding the spirit of their hearts. We can honor that gift by being their voice. These beautiful legends, magnificent symbols of freedom and grace are being stripped from their homes, families torn apart and an icon will soon be lost forever.”

 JEN PACK





The interweaving of contrasts, oppositions, or normative coloration is the driving impulse of the work. Evolution of the work relies heavily on an embrace and cultivation of uncertainty and the activity of intense seeing.

BRENDA ZAPPITELL




Brenda Zappitell creates abstract expressionist works not only born out of intuition, but also serendipitously influenced by nature and her life experiences. Her mark-making, though serendipitous, reflects these influences.

MORGAN ROBINSON




“I attempt to stay clear of the mundane by taking a closer look at the things that can do nothing else but encompass my sight. Unable to ignore organic language, I follow the indigenous bends in pieces of nature. There is no part of my environment too obscure to inspire.”

ABOUT HOLLY ADDI




Holly Addi, based in Salt Lake City, Utah, makes paintings and mixed media artworks. By rejecting an objective truth and global cultural narratives, Addi creates with daily, recognizable elements, an unprecedented situation in which the viewer is confronted with the conditioning of his own perception and has to reconsider his biased position. Her paintings are often about contact with architecture and basic living elements. Energy (heat, light, water), space and landscape are examined in less obvious ways and sometimes developed in absurd ways.

Jamie Kirkland seeks to evoke a sense of limitless space, of expansiveness, stillness and calm in her paintings.
