“My paintings are a compelling study of complex social, environmental, and psychological themes. Adopting unexpected, immersive points of view, such as a cutaway of an urban golf course or an exposed patch of polluted ocean, I invite viewers to examine what lurks beneath the surface, both figuratively and literally.” – Christopher Palbicki (St. Paul, Minnesota)
“My work of the last several years centered on themes of feminine being through the body, hybridity and contrast, and scale and disruption. This has taken the form of small cast dolls, sewn “skins” and surfaces, hybrid and outfitted animal “toys”, and, most recently, over life-sized constructed women built from industrial felt. My drawings reflect the more light-hearted variations on my interests. They suggest the scale of my new women while combining the playfulness of my animal works.” – Nicole Havekost (Rochester, MN)
“Capturing the essence of a place is vital to my art. Landscape, memory and intuition also play starring roles in the paintings. I am devoted to images of skies, birds, free-running open spaces and water. These earthscapes are portraits of places I love.” – Susan Solomon (St. Paul, MN)
“I have been creating tapestries for over 15 years… I found I am drawn to round and circular shapes that have a yin and yang to them. This expresses that our lives are complex, made of dark and light, pain and pleasure, easy and hard. Circles are a way to express paradox and wholeness at the same time.” – Susan Gangsei (Minneapolis, MN)
“Covering a woman’s face with a burka or niqab makes her anonymous and invisible, analogous to the invisibility of women’s contributions. I embroider women’s portraits as a metaphor for the laborious nature of unacknowledged “women’s work,” while revealing their identities in video interviews. Similarly, I create mandalas as a contemplative, meditative exercise, another traditionally labor intensive process that creates beauty.” – Fawzia Khan (Hopkins, MN)
