Kyle Staver

Kyle Staverʼs paintings are figurative and large in scale and scope, with subjects often drawn from mythology and biblical images. A student of art history, the works are inspired by, and in conversion with masters from history including Titian, Rembrandt, and Picasso.

The artist uses scumbling and glazing to achieve an active painting surface, giving the paintings depth and space. The surfaces are punctuated by dabs of saturated color which play off of large swaths of darker tones underneath, imbuing the paintings with weightiness and mystery. The paintings become a visceral experience, were every area of the composition is activated.

Jessica Dickinson

Jessica Dickinsonʼs abstract paintings are layered over an extended period of time through repeated additive and subtractive procedures with oil on a plaster like surface.

Dickinsonʼs decelerated works have the feeling of exposed surfaces moving through different states, where matter asserts itself as something impenetrable while at the same time vulnerable.
