Good Luck with the Sun
April 28 - June 7, 2018
Closed on Memorial Day
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 source. 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.

For The Lure, Margaux Crump debuts a body of work that explores gender and the natural world through the lens of power relationships. Using the idea of hunting and courting both literally and metaphorically, her sculptures, drawings, and photographs trace the complex movements of power between entities. Materials like sparkling salt licks, golden fishhooks, sex-safe silicone, and fluorescent minerals come together in unfamiliar ways, drawing us in while blurring the boundaries between predator and prey; human and animal; masculine and feminine.

"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.

Opening Reception - September 29, 2018 7pm-9pm
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.
