Both Danae Mattes and Frances McCormack meditate on nature’s elements that manifest a range of energies. Mattes combines materials and methods that are, in themselves, extracted from the earth and interacting in ways inherent to minerals, water, fibers and gravity. Combining landscape drawings, stark architectural elements and loosely interpreted botanical forms, McCormack’s paintings manifest a range of feelings reflected through the natural world in an invented space. For both artists, form is referential, but not realistic, inviting the viewer’s engagement.
Courtney Eagan and David Sullivan’s art practices span animation, sound, sculpture, photography and interactivity to explore the delicate and evolving relationship between people, technology and the environment.
