Artist Statement: Emily Schaefer

My work focuses on the physical application of medium to surface; exploring the relationship between the individually poured forms and the solid, opaque painted ground. At times the paint is manipulated on the canvas with direct purpose, other times it is left to its own device. Working flat, paint is poured, spread, dripped, and manipulated on the surface. It poses the question as to whether paint is an object, a subject, or even both in a single instance.

Each piece is heavily weighted on the intuitive steps taken to create the finished work. Each form or paint application is considered and reconsidered several times before being applied to the surface. The paintings become a mental game of tug of war, as each work evolves around constant decision-making.

Artist Statement: Frances Thomas

Persistent themes in my work include restlessness, temporality, anticipation and that which is unknown or unknowable. Relying on an improvisational playing out of materials and ideas I attempt to create a poetic distillation of thought and sensation. I am interested in shifting space, still points that are not still at all, a sensual space of fleeting connection, the exquisite tension between isolation and belonging. The composition is at its most exciting for me when it barely holds together. It is on the edge of the image, between forming and fixity, where a wider reality can be seized.
