Good Luck with the Sun
April 28 - June 7, 2018
Opening Reception - April 28, 2018 7pm-9pm
We often use the word “luck” when talking about sunny days or meteorological conditions. Luck is also an important factor in Krista Steinke’s recent body of work, where trial and error, chance, and imperfection become part of her photographic process. With the sun as both subject and collaborator, her work blurs the lines between abstract mark-making and recorded document to reflect upon our greatest energy. Using homemade pinhole cameras, extended multiple exposures, and other experimental techniques, Steinke explores the desire to connect with the natural world and photography’s unique role in mediating that experience.

Comprised of body-sized sculptures and drawings, The Lure is an exhibition that explores the slippery relationships between power, desire, and intimacy. More specifically, the works in The Lure question the power structures behind cultural constructions of gender and our ideological conceptions of nature. By blurring the visual and conceptual distinctions between what is plant, animal and human, the exhibition reveals points of overlap—moments wherein we might catch glimpses of ourselves in the ‘other.’

"Can place and its surroundings dictate how people dress, think and behave?" is the central question in Meg Aubrey's work. She acts as a viewer within her own community to analyze the behaviors of the residence and record the activities and emotions that she sees. The planned communities of suburbia have become her laboratory where she scrutinizes daily activities and behaviors, asking questions about how this chosen lifestyle can rob people of their individualism under the facade of beauty, order, and security.

What accounts for the ongoing appeal of the murder mystery? The murder mystery novel may be an odd choice for escapism, but its enduring popularity might express central societal fascinations. Many Mini Murder Scenes, an installation consisting of series of rooms constructed in miniature is based on crime scenes plucked from fiction. A hybrid of an architectural model and a dollhouse, the domestic interior spaces have in common their appearance in crime fictions as murder scenes.
