The Triumph of Depravity

The Triumph of Depravity

“As an artist, I try to focus on having no overarching mission whatsoever. I am certainly not against one, and the artists I admire most always have a mission of some kind. However, I have found that for me to get anything done, I need to focus on what is immediately at hand for what it is rather than what I would like it to be.”

“The reciprocal equilibrium between what is thought and which is observed…creates…a body of technique fused with a venerable admiration of all that is living. …beyond that which is human, beyond the merely experiential: It is focused on the will of the eternal.”

“There is something magical about the quality of natural light. I love to see how it has such influence and power over its subject. Often making the mundane beautiful; the dismissed present. This body of work reflects my travels outdoors, capturing my favorite subject: light.”

Lisa Tarkett Reed | Inner/Outer Space

Shooter by Lisa Tarkett Reed

The artist explores ideas about sacred space, light, and connection in her nature-inspired drawings, paintings, and sculptures. She cultivates observance and practice as she creates collaged surfaces to which she responds with drawings in India ink and acrylic paint.

Last Call by Karen Commings

Last Call by Karen Commings

“As the night wears on, the glare from the concession stands creates a strong contrast to the enveloping darkness. People partially revealed or silhouetted against the lighted windows and shapes, shadows, and patterns of the concession stands contribute to the edginess of the images, making what in the daytime might be a festive event often seem somber and surreal.”
