George Bolster

Irish born, New York based, George Bolster explores ideas at the intersection of science fiction and reality. His work takes many forms from: kinetic installations to videos that straddle documentary and storytelling, to digital images made as tapestries and intense drawings made in graphite.

Drawing on the ideas he developed during his multi-year residency at the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence Institute (SETI), and subsequent research with the Kepler Mission scientists from NASA Ames in Northern California. These two organizations share common goals, and have identified over 2,662 planets with the aid of radio telescopes and space probes that gather information, which are then decoded and analyzed.

Greg Fadell

Detroit based Greg Fadell’s series Erasures, Wipe Outs, and Unpaintings appear to pay homage to the Willem De Kooning drawing Robert Rauschenberg partially erased in 1953.

Rather than using an original artwork he takes a museum poster, or a reproduction from a book that is scanned and enlarged complete with caption, and carefully mounts it onto a wood panel. He then sets to work with solvents reworking the image retaining just enough information for the source to be recognizable but transforming its material constituents into an abstracted blur. His intervention articulates the tensions between the past and present uses of the image as he shifts from the consideration of the original artwork, to its reproduced form and its new original form, these distinctions collapsing within each work.

Shellburne Thurber

Boston based, Shellburne Thurber uses the medium of photography to explore the relationship between constructed space and human presence.

Most recently she has used the site of her family’s New Hampshire home to expand on this exploration to include the concept of constructed space as a metaphor for the body – specifically the house as a stand-in for the mother, a structure that witnesses, nurtures, contains and protects those who reside within its walls.

Emerging from years of observing the way that the changing seasons and the attendant shifts in light alter these long familiar spaces in minute yet powerful ways, the act of photographing becomes a way of experiencing something, known over a long period of time, in a new and transformative way, creating images that encompass the complex and uncomfortable question of change, stasis, and the inevitability of loss.

David Thorpe

David Thorpe proposes a poster project to be taken out into the city to adorn its buildings and interiors with images of sensual botanical illustrations of hybrid plants ripe with fruit; their foliage reaching out to the edges of the sheet as if to green the city with their intoxicating fecundity.

Drawing on the tradition of the socialist propaganda poster, fused with the ideals of many of the embryonic communities contemporary with the British Arts and Crafts movement that were similarly designed as models for the improvement of society, and based in a nostalgia-driven quest for some spiritual or pre-industrial Eden-like world, his project Wild Risings: Billboards for Erotic Socialists seems perfectly timed for a world currently re-evaluating its future path.
