As always, Aryn and I view and consider the works independently,
then find our intersections. Whittling the list down was difficult but we found
ourselves gravitating to some of the denser pieces, both in terms of materials
and the resonance conveyed. We are not familiar with the artists or their bios,
so context was a non-factor. This made us lean toward beauty and visceral
reaction, and away from familiar styles and the more overtly messaged.
A foreboding reflection.
Malformed but on paper…
The alien spectacle.
Art as statement with magnetic visual appeal and resonance.
Ethereal elegance. Dreamlike submission. Troubling grace.
