1AM Gallery is pleased to pres ent\, &ldquo\;Side By Side&rdquo\;\, showcasing Florida ba sed artists\, Bask and Tes One. This exhibition signifies much more than th e arrangement of their works\; it also marks a 20-year friendship founded o n graffiti art\, comic books and intemperate creativity. From a small crew of writers (SBS)\, grew unique and signature artistic styles that propelled their works around the world\, inside galleries and outside of conventions .

\n

Bask \;is the moniker of one\, Ales Bask Hostomsky (@knownasbask)\, who along with his pa rents emigrated from Czechoslovakia to Florida and began to soak up America &rsquo\;s popular iconic imagery along with the sun. The artist&rsquo\;s ri chly textural work imbue his &ldquo\;anti-iconic\,&rdquo\; sometimes satiri cal worldview with an undercurrent of dark emotion. Combining his graphic s kill with his trademark of multi-layered applications\, Bask builds up the surface only to break down the image.

\n

Combining traditional and non-traditional techniques\, Leon &ldquo\;Tes One&rdquo\; Bedore (@tesone) creates works of art that contr ast nature with technology\, grime with grace. Allowing himself to find bea uty in the mundane\, he is able to juxtapose rejected landscapes with figur ative illustrations\, all the while identifying what is common between the conversing elements. These opposing forces coexist to create paintings that are both symbolic and metaphorical. Tes One&rsquo\;s conceptual paintings are assembled from the foundation up\; color and cast blanket organic subst rates. Incorporating movement within his work brings his energy and message to the viewer\, emotions envelope and hold focus.

RayKo Photo Center&rsquo\;s Residence Program was developed to continue our support and education of fine art photographers. \;Sele cted artists receive unlimited access to RayKo&rsquo\;s facilities for a si x-month time period\, with each artist's residency culminating in an exhibi tion in our gallery. Past residents have included Eric William Carroll\, Kl ea McKenna\, and Meghann Riepenhoff. This fall&rsquo\;s residents continue on the path less taken. Both Vanessa Marsh and Jessica Skloven have spent c ountless hours in our color darkrooms making chromogenic prints\, a process and a skill that many have forsaken in this digital age of photography.

\n

Vanessa Marsh actually goes so far as to make her own negatives&helli p\;painting and drawing on layers of acetate and paper and film and combini ng them all in the darkroom to create large nighttime landscapes inspired b y an amateur interest in cosmology and physics. These dark skies with satur ated celestial patterns of invented galaxies and nebula speak to our mediat ed experience of the night sky and nature in general. Colors\, assigned to gasses and light waves that the naked eye cannot see\, are presented and co nsumed as truth. Giant mural c-prints of these invented scenes build on Van essa&rsquo\;s interest in translating drawings and paintings into photograp hic form.

\n

Jessica Skloven is exposing 4x5 sheets of color film&hell ip\;but not in any traditional manner. She slips the sheets of film under t he covers\, under pillows\, in between sheets&hellip\;these images are crea ted without the confines of a camera\, without control and without the esse ntial aspect of what makes a correct photograph &ndash\; focused light. The y are made sometimes over long periods of time\, buried deep under layers\, being exposed with tiny light from dark windows and ambient spills from ca reless LCD screens. In many cases\, they are failures\, images built up too densely to view or left for too little time without enough light to imprin t them. The process is one embedded in ritual. Perhaps an exercise in anti- documenting\, these are photographs as uncertain objects\, records of insta bility in an attempt to pin down a constant.

\n

They are just slow lig ht leaking onto plastic.

\n

Jessica&rsquo\;s work centers around the m aterial relationship between the illusions that occur in the natural world and those that are produced&mdash\;both in the act of photographing and in the re-constitution of those images when they are transferred to paper. Usi ng photographic process\, she imagines the simultaneous impossibility of th e abstract and the familiarity of the real\, precariously combining to coun ter photography&rsquo\;s often-presumed objectivity. The resulting c-prints are sublime and sensual\, drawing the viewer into their mysteries.

\n

Come view these two dynamic artists&rsquo\; images and question the future and the direction of photography all over again.
