DESCRIPTION

Holding onto Something Slippery renders visible the creation process through a combination of materials and a hybrid of mediums. Jerome Acks manipulates dimensionality and flatness, calling into question the materials and basic, physical elements of his works.  Alika Cooper couples patchwork and layering of common fabrics, which portray intimate figures in camouflaged settings.  Ryan Fenchel uses notions of craft and display as tools for discovery, accumulating ideas and materials to be arranged in various ways.  All artists employ elements of craft, referencing traditional, if not domestic, means of creation in order to express the tensions between their forms.
