Works by Andrea Lewicki
Jana LaChance has observed that she is “easily consumed looking at the ocean, tide, the stretch of natural fragments” and that “our physical selves, to me at least, don’t unerringly fit in this natural landscape, only partially.” Her paintings explore this juxtaposition of self and sea using a combination of brilliant and subtle colors.
Weihui Lu Acrylic on Canvas Weihui’s large-scale, abstracted landscape paintings depict an apocalyptic world. She combines elements of Eastern ink painting and Abstract Expressionism to explore the sense of fracture and conflict within her bi-cultural identity. In her paintings, the land becomes a metaphor for the mind – both in crisis, overburdened and under siege. […]

Malin Abrahamsson Mixed Media Sculpture My Spaceholders revolve around the idea, shape, and purpose of the vessel, and the notion of holding space: the practice of allowing room to reflect on whatever arises in the moment. Clay’s transformative qualities make it an equal collaborator rather than a medium I aspire to bend to my will.

Justin Hamm Photographs Artist Statement “For me, the act of photography is similar to the act of writing a poem. I try to get lost, be unafraid of any turn, and react emotionally first.
