Labyrinth of Desire
This body of work explores a journey of emancipation from the
constraints of societal conformity, a paragon presented to the world
only to be overshadowed by a gaze of disillusionment and feelings of
estrangement and malaise. Realizing that desire in all its forms is
about the pursuit of happiness, and understanding that it is
attained just before it is lost.
"Woe to him who has nothing left to desire... We enjoy less what we obtain than what we hope for, and we are happy only before being happy." ~ Rousseau

Brooke Mullins Doherty
For the past four years, I have been exploring events in my life and my reactions to them through a weekly monotype series, my Biorhythms prints. The prints are trace monotypes, combining the positive print of white paper with drawn ink lines with the negative reversal of the image that is left on the inked plate. I follow a changing set of rules within each year's prints that guide my process and imagery, but the overall rules involve taking time to reflect on my week and its most significant occurrence before making the print, which provides visual form to my life as well as structure to my studio routine.

Fluctuations in the Electric Fluid
Gatesman's current body of work explores the fundamental forces of electricity and magnetism. Through experimentation and the use of both traditional and digital printmaking techniques, she makes these unseen physical forces visible and discovers a vocabulary of marks that are produced when these forces are manipulated.
One series of prints is comprised of electrostatic monotypes — a process that Kim has developed which combines xerographic with traditional printmaking processes. This technique dissects and re–imagines a laser copier's primary operation. Her process uses slightly different components, but functions in a similar way. The patterns revealed in these prints are fused to thin japanese paper and backed with cotton rag paper via a traditional technique called chine colle.
Through another series, Kim explores the common phenomenon of lightning. The pieces in her "Plasma Series" are digital prints, which are enlargements of small-scale lightning experiments with metallic film and microwaves.

Holly Carruthers is a multi-media assemblage artist seeking to make sense of a world full of stuff. She finds artistic possibilities can arise from putting together disparate things like vintage curiosities, antiques, hardware detritus, and junk. From Ms. Carruthers, the result is art that is surreal, dream-like, lyrical, and otherworldly.
Her vast collection of pilfered wood, glass, metal, ephemera and accoutrement are assembled, fused, overlapped, reorganized and juxtaposed to create unexpected and ambiguous relationships that creates a dynamic spacial continuum that is multi dimensional, exploratory and experimental.
