Lisa Anderson Artist Statement:
I love the process of putting paint on a canvas; I work in acrylics because I can quickly achieve multiple layers. I am infatuated with squares and rectangles reminiscent of windows and doors, and find sunlight through a window incredibly inspiring. I’m intrigued and indirectly guided, in my work, by shapes and shadows cast at different times of the day.
I am happiest when standing in my studio, burst in hand about to start a new piece; those first few brush stokes are so exciting and full of hope. As layers, colors, and shapes take form, I experience love, hate, awe, frustration anxiety, obsession, and finally satisfaction and completion. I don’t love everything that I finish, sometimes it seems I’ve simply liberated an idea. The resulting painting are chapters in my life’s story.

Susan Feigenbaum Artist Statement:
My ceramic sculpture connects the world of our everyday perceptions with the subconscious world. I handbuild my forms from earthenware clay. Crackling with color and tactile surfaces, my work is inspired by the unseen, creating an uneasy balance between innocence and darkness. Inspired by an archive of life experience, memory, and the mystery of the subconscious, my sculptural forms straddle the boundaries between the human, the animal, and the imagined.
