Having spent most of his life living in the beautiful Bay of Plenty (North Island, NZ) it seemed obvious to him to explore the local landscape and surroundings for early inspiration in his art. The ocean also playing a dominant role in his life being a keen surfer and boatbuilder by trade, he was inspired to capture the perfection and raw power of the sea and of the perfect wave. Other local landscapes including the lonely Mount Maunganui and Mayor Island have featured in his uniquely crafted glass sculptures.  photo 4f723f4200ee46632a603e48e42dfdb6_zpse951663d.jpg  photo 654879e8e3b6d47c178fc37129e28b16_zps03ddddff.jpg

Skull Lamp

 photo 110028_B2_Skull_Lamp_zpsf0ff2ce5.jpg  photo Bulbing-by-Studio-Cheha-3_zps0d664823.jpg 'This playful and visually surprising LED lamp is composed of a flat acrylic sheet that has been laser engraved with dozens of intricate incised lines that suggest the three-dimensional and gently ghoulish form of a skull. When inserted into the wooden birch wood base, LED light travels through the line, illuminating the design and creating a powerful optical illusion that challenges our comprehension of space.'

The "masks" and the accompanying identities we all assume depending on the life role we must play, obstructs the conscious mind from acknowledging what truly unites us through the isolation and chaos: our shared encounters of pain, loss, desire, and longing for serenity and acceptance. The false facades we all manufacture to adapt and belong also renders most blind and lost in a world where the meaningless has somehow become meaningful and the idea of a shared honest self devoid of hidden agendas all too infrequent." - Alexandra Manukyan  photo eca543462388b622ed024cac93458e20_zps11e4c462.jpg  photo 2828a25ef25e8261d98b007411519208_zps3749d8a5.jpg

I begin with relationships and experiences in my everyday that I find confrontational or in need of examination. Through research, experimentation, and collaboration, I produce works addressing specific questions that extend into social, political, and global conversations. I am interested in developing communities through my work via collaboration, relevancy, and outreach. " - Cheryl Pope  photo 120407-6305_zps925243e8.jpg  photo Up_Against_Install_2_zpsb6642283.jpg

Nate Frizzell

Using bold and colorful images of children at play – and in turmoil – Frizzell creates intimate stories that mask his own feelings of immaturity. Using both highly rendered images and softer graphic design elements, Frizzell weaves stories into his paintings that we all can see ourselves being a part of.  photo Untitled-2_zps98f3baca.jpg  photo Untitled-5_zps437241fd.jpg
