About the Artists

 

Courtney Reid is a painter of undiluted, primitive reflex, channeled through classical structure, examined through dream and mythology."There is no new thing upon the earth, That all knowledge was but remembrance;" Francis Bacon: Essays, LVIII

Michael Giancristiano's latest body of deconstructed plywood panels leed the viewer on a journey into the desert of the mind. Suggestive of desert landscapes, "Barren Indecision" is a series of elegantly crafted, mirror image wall relief’s that serve as an inter-dimensional Rorschach test.

Su Beningfield’s sculptures are imbued with her love of nature and a clear preference for creating bold and elegant design work.

In contrast, Gary Palmer’s paintings feel like hazy memories of moments by the shores of Lake Malawi on a journey in East Africa. Sensual forms, like dancers engaged in daily duties move across saffron landscapes, reflecting both the warmth of the place and the closeness to nature of the people.
