Artist Kate Aitichson’s work focuses on representations of the intersections between the man-made and the organic. She combines her experiences in the natural world with experimental printmaking she creates large scale monotyping. Using native and non-native plant species from to make her own paper, she investigates the physical layers from the landscape itself and the ebb and flow between the man-made and the organic.

Artist Laura Tanner explores the consequences of colonialism. Through pattern, printed textiles and turn of the century advertisements, she appropriate images that reflect periods of social and/ or political turmoil. She recalls historical conflicts and construct new narratives that record contemporary accounts of racial and gender injustice. With each drawing, she strives to create a continuous narrative that chronicles the Western struggle with diversity in the face of white fragility.

Loring Taoka’s work is an extension on the act of perception—the way we perceive visual elements, shapes, patterns and previously identified important characteristics. Using basic geometry as a point of departure, he creates overlapping, incomplete, and illusory shapes in various stages of flux. Squares fade into squares; circles are completed in a two-way mirror’s reflection; a rectangle is created by smaller rectangles; all asking us to question our senses.

Heather Macali’s woven compositions are infused with an adoration of colors and patterns arising from childhood experiences steeped in the material culture of the Midwest; specifically, beloved 1980’s and 1990’s games and cartoons such as Transformers and Rainbow Brite. Compelled to create work that is inspired by positive memories from this time, the artist has chosen to combat society’s addiction to stories that are filled with violence using vibrant colors and visually stimulating pattern, creating an environment that acts as an escape for viewers from the adverse stimulants around us.
