Jordan Tierney and Geoff Grace: Echo Chamber
Jordan Tierney and Geoff Grace see what most might not—they collect and then create. Very often the found objects or images dictate the process, but the end result is specifically theirs…a tangible, yet ephemeral point of view that seeks out beauty in desolation and creates poetry from that which is cast aside or forgotten.

Geoff Grace spends a great deal of time observing his subjects. His art is reflective and quiet at first glance, but it is loaded with historical traditions and references to biology.

Jordan Tierney transforms discarded objects, objects full of “Ju Ju” and the weight of history. Often carved of wood, her work is solid and substantial, yet magical and weightless lyricism is at its core.

Both artists create work that feels older than it actually is, work that echoes past lives. They employ a sense of patina or a weathered quality, yet the work is contemporary, fresh, and potent in its impact.

Tim Cambell: Golden Afternoon
In ‘Golden Afternoon,’ Tim Campbell combines found text, popular imagery, abstract painting, and sound in a body of work that addresses landscape as an exhausted mode of representation. Works referencing terrorist manifestos, 19th century fiction, and American cartoons raise questions about the divide between nature and technology in American imagery. Campbell is interested in how layering, erasure, repetition and duplication can challenge the singularity of a painting’s image. He is also interested in our relationship to a natural world that is closely entwined with a technological one, and in how the construction of images can direct our understanding of these two realms.
