Jason Peters

" My installations investigate the relationships of actual space, environment and materials with the viewer's inherent and often programmed opinions of them. My goal is to challenge intrinsic perceptions by suggesting that the objects of our reality are not always what they seem. I use found objects because they help redefine prescribed meanings and values, especially when assembled into entirely different structures. The question I want the viewer to ask is, "Are these familiar objects just as recognizable when serving an entirely different purpose? And just as important, does their transformation modify their value?" - Jason Peters

Scott G Brooks

oedipus1 sgb_06_16 painting8 p Scott G Brooks is originally from Flint, Michigan, and currently lives and works in Washington, DC. His subject matter ranges from simple portraiture to intricate narratives. In his paintings, he takes social, psychological, and political issues and injects them with a dark sense of humor. Anatomical distortions separate the figures from the photographic ideal, which gives him the freedom to create his own distorted reality. His work is described as twisted and offbeat, sentimental, and disturbing. In addition to exhibiting in galleries, he has also illustrated several children’s books. His influences include Mad Magazine, Disney, Saturday morning cartoons, and talking heads on cable news. sgb_06_11

Enno de Kroon

p p p ' Leading both recycling art and cubism into the 21st century Enno de Kroon from The Netherlands uses ordinary egg crates instead of canvas to make spectacular "two-and-a-half" dimensional paintings in a style he defines as Eggcubism. ' His eggtray artwork costs about 1000 euros so if you want to take home one of these, you will have to smash that piggy bank open : ) p
