ABOUT ANKE SCHOFIELD



Anke Schofield was born in Ithaca, New York in 1972 and was apprenticed as a professional photographer assistant when she was still in the 8th grade. Her father introduced her to the wonders of the camera early in life. Anke took the form readily and with enthusiasm. During high school, she apprenticed with a number of artists in the New York area. She was awarded a scholarship to the Savannah College of Art and Design where she earned a bachelor’s degree in fine art. Throughout this period, Anke pursued her studies of color theory and painting, continuing to find in these endeavors greater creative stimulus and inspiration than she had known in her photographic work.

VOL. 07.17.2018 | TIM LIDDY

ABOUT TIM LIDDY



Tim Liddy’s painted constructions so closely resemble their board game inspirations that many viewers walk right past, thinking they must be found objects. Liddy relishes the confusion. The works are actually elaborately enameled copper sculptures, each seemingly printed word and every abraded strip of masking tape made by the artist. Once you’ve discovered the truth, you are caught up in the astonishing detail and verisimilitude, and you’re drawn in to investigate more closely. Within the recognizable format of a mid-twentieth-century game box are surprising elements that are often at odds with the traditional object. Liddy inserts wry commentary on mid-century social mores into this comfortably recognizable context. The fact that the boxes seem to be held together tenuously by tape suggests the rapidly eroding conventions of an earlier era.

ABOUT MARINA DUNBAR



“My paintings are nature based abstractions driven by an exploration of movement, color, harmony and balance. Watercolor lends itself to the build up of layers, capturing traces of time and transformation. I am inspired by the aesthetics of floral x-ray photography, developed by a radiologist in the 1930’s, this documentation of plant forms resulted in a poetic merge of art and science. The minimal and reductive photographs conveyed an intrinsic beauty. Taking from their simplicity, I approach my paintings with a sense of restraint; laying down transparent shapes of color and letting the interaction of hues establish a feeling of depth and dynamic motion within each piece.

DOUGLAS WITMER



In the 21st century, I see my work as offering a clear alternative in a visual culture dominated by speed, layering, and complexity. I do not believe my work requires any prerequisite knowledge beyond what you bring to it. My hope is that it can activate the sense that you simply feel yourself seeing.”
