Katie Caron transformed the circular motif into cellular/biological forms with a mixed media approach using silicon.

Veronica Herrera used graphite to create shapes in the upper right corner associative with brain folds and grooves. She will base her art, for our upcoming shows, on the brain’s receptors for compassion.

Susanne Mitchell saw subtle phallic forms throughout this piece and decided to take one of them and further develop it. She states, “As a culture we are so accustomed to images of sexualized, objectified female body parts. The phallus is a complex and multi layered signifier, which is rarely depicted in comparison.”
