Prop 65 Warning
Artists Nate Glaspie and Shelby David Meier address issues of consumption and waste within contemporary culture. Influenced by vacuum-form packaging designs, Glaspie's new series Prop 65,re-constructs the integrity of unnoticed designers within corporate America.
Surrogate Icons and Activities
Referencing multiple subjects surrounding popular culture and art history, Meier's work Surrogate Icons and Activities creates a conceptual web centered around technology, consumption and originality.
Shayne Murphy's paintings incorporate the figure within invented and ambiguous spaces to invoke a sense of exploration and discovery. The relationship between the figures and the spaces they occupy take on the role of a transient, protector, destroyer, or remain obscured. Fusing figurative realism with linear abstraction, Murphy seeks to create a hyper-reality that acts as a manifestation of the real and imagined. He is interested in humankind's innate curiosity of the unknown and our desire for escapism.
