CJ is a Chicago-based artist. He creates a series of kinetic color chaos pieces about breaking free of repetition and non-stimulating situations. The icons in his art represent us as humans released from the monotony of each day. The patterned vibrant labyrinth of colors and shapes are designed to let the viewer lose themselves in the piece, hopefully, forgetting in that moment, about the drudgery of life at times. The blasts of color and tightly packed patterns are CJ's candy for the brain. A sugar rush perpetrated through the eyes.
Living and working in the Midwest, Hermes’ work has been published in magazines both in the U.S. and abroad. Artist In Residence owner, Heather McGee, had this to say about Hermes and her art: “…a mixture of postmodern and deconstruction-style work, although she works in many genres and media…She’s an interesting mix of carefree-obsessiveness.”
Hermes’ work is reflective of the spectrum of simplicity to complexity she finds in nature, in humanity, and in the combination of the two.
Whether it be writing thoughts and experiences, passages from books I’ve read, or making lists of movies I‘ve watched, documentation has always been something I have needed to do.
It was with this group of animal paintings that it became clear to me that using brushes, paints, and canvas to make images is just another form of documentation. These simple animal forms are the space where I whittle down stockpiles of ideas to make images that act as vehicles to display my concerns about environmental decay. They are a product of my ruminations on time, which have taken shape as animals. Documentation captures a moment in time. Our environment is married to time.
Somewhere buried in this work are my feelings about time: Time terrifies me because it runs out, Time reassures me because it moves slowly and heals, and Time influences me to make records of the present that are essentially letters to the future.
A few of Collias’ solo showings include the Whitdel Arts Gallery in Detroit and the Chicago Creative Space Awards Ceremony in Chicago. He has been featured in Chicago Literati Magazine, and has shown at the Harold Washington Library. His work is in private residences and public collections throughout the Midwest, including the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago, IL.
Steve Toole’s photography seems to capture the tranquility of Americana. His balanced composition and intriguing use of atmosphere set the scene for the viewer to get lost in the image. His work evokes emotion, whether a feeling of desolation or delight, Toole’s viewpoint is unique.
With a studio practice in northern Illinois, Toole’s images are captured both near and far.
Gibson works as both a xerographist & painter with work in galleries from New York to Los Angeles, along with commissioned pieces, including mixed media work. In addition to xerography, Gibson is currently exploring work that combines painting & embroidery into mixed media pieces which offer a nod to the graphic xerography she has done, almost exclusively for the past decade.
