Multiples of dodecahedral shaped painted woodworks invite the viewer to interpret an implied illusion of three dimensional form. The neon works evoke a similar essence of illusion through controlled properties of atmospheric light and line. Jay Shinn continues his path as one of the most preeminent second-generation artists to work with light – inheriting the mantle of Turrell, Irwin and Flavin. Jay Shinn lives and works between Dallas, New York and Berlin and his works are held within a number of important private and public collections worldwide.

Enthralled by historical artifacts, Chris Daharsh ('12 painting) and Molly Kaderka ('11 painting and art history) are devoted to creating works that present objects in an enigmatic and empathetic way. Both artists use techniques to build empathy around a specific object and communicate to the viewer the significance of each object or artifacts. Through different process, Daharsh and Kaderka use a variety of layering techniques as a way of creating a sense of time in the work. By creating layers of marks, textures and patinas, the work has evidence of time past. Daharsh is actively making sculptural artifacts whereas Kaderka is re-presenting the image of artifacts. This exhibition explores the point where the physical sculptures Daharsh makes, and the drawn images Kaderka creates, merge and form a dialog about objects.
