MINIATU RE HOUSES
http://www.myspace.com/miniaturehouses
Recently stepping out of their quiet living room songwriting sessions in Long Beach and out into the whole wide world are Miniature Houses. Mixi ng elements of folk and pop with delicate harmonies and awkward confessio ns\, Miniature Houses was made from a chance meeting between a girl (Lili De La Mora) who sings and a boy (Michael Wysong) who plays guitar and sing s. The results are songs filled with unassuming gestures that conjure simi lar moments of chance discovery.

Continually shif ting paradigms thru the manipulation of
 text and context artist Stephen Anderson’s visual hybrid series “Distilled Truths“ combines video and neon signage creating a kinetic billboard that invites the viewer to revisi t their own preconceived notions\, ideas and attitudes about cultural\, pol itical and religious stereotypes.  Pursuing light and motion as his primary sculptural mediums\, artist Tim Hogan utilizes cast glass\, neon\, projected light and the human form to create emotive\, surreal and visually charged objects.  Artist Kunio Ohashi combines neon with natural ma terials such as driftwood or stones from the beach or desert to create scul pture and assemblages that are minimal\, striking and often surreal. With n eon as her palette\, artist Linda Sue Price creates abstract imagery that is influenced by personal experiences. Both formal and conceptual\, h er artwork combines light\, line and color to produce poignant and visually beautiful sculptural objects. Utilizing neon to create beautiful\, colorfu l and captivating neon light based installations\, artist Phillip Vaughn is drawn to reveal invisible structures and inter-relationships throug h creating abstract works that are concerned with a hidden order and/or pat tern.   Brian Stotesbery utilizes neon\, LED's\, incandescent light and lasers to produce kinetic light-based sculptures that are part machine and part performance.  Artist David Brokaw know for large scale inst allations combines low brow mechanics with equal amounts of humor\, wit and imagination. Artist Kyle Chew redefines domestic materials and obje cts\, questioning our place as humans in a world filled with technology. In spired by simple movements often found in nature (from the rhythmic flappin g of a bird's wings to the hypnotic swaying of a cat's tail)\, artist Ji m Jenkins is part sculptor\, part engineer\, and part choreographer. Hi s kinetic artwork couples a keen sense of humor and inquiry with mechanical movement.  Artist Ryan Ross invites the viewer to become a part of his artwork through an interactive process. Often veiled by sarcastic under tones his works deal with human behavior\, perception\, ideas and the decis ion-making process.  Artist Joella March's liquid and light 'Waterfi les' integrate whimsy\, function and dysfunction.  Her l.e.d. conText Chand elier is the latest in her series of text and light based sculptural work.< /p>\n
