Derrick Buisch’s paintings are abstractions of everyday visual language with concentrated surface tension between background and symbols. Anoka Faruqee is influenced by mathematics and Islamic tiles and her paintings are examples of mathematical perfection describing weightlessness. Ben Grant combines disparate images to form correlated images in finely painted compositions. Trent Miller explores how empty space works within the shapes of his geodesic forms and Mark Ottens continues pushing the limits of liveliness of pattern with his intensely colored, intimately sized paintings. Jason Rohlf, known for beautifully rhythmic compositions, persists in exploration of rich surfaces. Michael Velliquette’s paper sculpture is a medley of shape and form addressing issues of ancestry. Jeremy Popelka’s murrini glass vases are modern uptakes on a traditional media and Richard Taylor’s large scale sculpture express his appreciation for music in brightly colored shapes. Jim Rose, inspired by antique quilts, expressed this admiration in furniture made from reclaimed steel.
