Francisco Amaya: Beheld but Unknown

May 7th to May 29th, 2010

“I like to meditate on the patterns all around us that carry an inexplicable meaning, a feeling that starts with the eyes but ends up floating in the space inches above the head – beheld, but unknown,” Amaya explains.

These patterns recur in his paintings in the intimate similarity of trees, maps, telephone lines- indicators of the web-like lattice that structures his reality while his drawings evoke the architectural ghosts that inhabit the urban space.

Tom McCormack: Chemicals in Balance

March 5th to 27th, 2010

Tom McCormack is a musician and artist from Petersburg, Virginia who creates acid etchings on steel collected from historic industrial buildings which he uses as inspiration for his work. His method captures the dramatic and desolate beauty of these deserted factories.

Tom says, "It's not uncommon to see a footprint rusted into the plates from a worker who moved the goods through the buildings."

The artist also creates work on commission.
