Visiting Artist Talk: Taylor Baldwin

Thursday, November 21, 2019 - 7:00pm

Taylor Baldwin's work seeks to conflate the act of making with an act of violence - or unmaking - whether enacted physically or cognitively, whether enacted on an object, an image, or an idea. In his practice as a whole, he uses sculpture, video, and installation as a tool to stitch together and/or confuse the discordant relationship between a physical object and the cognitive experience of it.

Visiting Artist Talk: Jesse Harrod

Friday, November 8, 2019 - 12:00pm

Jesse Harrod's work manipulates and transforms materials to animate their sexual and sensual qualities and explore the intersections among queer kinship, support, and sexuality. In their sculptural installations, they work with rope as a pliable, linear element that they regard much like a drawing tool, specifically utilizing knot making techniques such as macramé in ways that can be understood as simultaneously restraining and supporting.

Jason Craighead's paintings are a dynamic and expressive combination of acrylic paint, oil pastel, and graphite markings on canvas. His works emits an infectious, fervent energy; where every splatter, drip, and scratch conveys the artist’s emotional and profound spirit. Craighead's work echoes the well-known words of Edward Hopper, “If you could say it in words, there would be no reason to paint”.
