ABOUT HOLLY ADDI



Holly Addi (°1973, SLC, Utah, United States) 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.

IN THE HEART OF LOUISIANA, ONE MAN’S IMPOSSIBLY ORNATE HOME



Fashioned as crumbling Roman temples, Turkish tents, ruined Gothic abbeys or vertiginously tall Asian pagodas, they provided both aesthetic charm and a clear satirical subtext: These were monuments to classical virtue in contrast to 18th-century court excess.

ABOUT JENNIFER JL JONES



An exploration of beauty and energy, Jennifer JL Jones’ mixed media paintings are a meditation on the dichotomy of the existence of nature both as corporeal reality and intangible spirituality. Employing multiple layers of abstraction and combined mediums including a refined glazing technique, she creates rich, organic patinas that evoke universal emotional and physical connecting points for the observer. Layers of paint create a palimpsest quality to the work, elegant, ever-shifting paintings combining a poetic, sensual grace with consistently bold execution.

ABOUT ALAN ALLDREDGE



Alan Alldredge investigates processual abstraction with flowing pathways of texture, reflection and illusion. Taking cues from the natural world, he aims to reinforce the belief that beauty is part of the sacred through his work. Alldredge’s “cast monoprints” force him to surrender to the process. Through the work’s meditative visuals and complex origins, he seeks to create a transcendent sacred object for the viewer.
