Images of Facade, a collaboration with Jordan Tate - curated by Elizabeth Denny. Facade was shown at SPRING/BREAK Art Show this March in NYC, and at Marshall University, WV in January. A mixed media approach to an European garden, Facade exposes the structures of artifice like an exploded diagram showcasing the trompe l'oeil and the foundation that supports it. A high/low rendering allows 3D to be flattened and 2D to be expanded. We are playing on these expectations while dismantling them at the same time, trying to recreate historic scenes that never existed.

"Double Dresdner Monkey, Music Lesson" was recently shown at Wave Pool in Cincinnati 5: Artists Impacting the Community. Cincinnati 5 is part of a new yearly publication aimed at documenting 5 visual artists who promote and build the Cincinnati art community. To corresponds with the release of the book, each artist participated in an exhibition at Wave Pool. The book and exhibition were initiated and organized by artist Emily Moores, and we are flattered to be included in the first round.
Artist Greg Swiger also interviewed us for his Final Friday podcast about this exhibition - you can listen here if you would like. It is so sweet - thank you Greg!

A few images from our exhibition at The Sculpture Center in Cleveland with Chris Vorhees, curated by James Barker, September 17th - October 23rd 2015. We were finally(!) able to show our monolith - Image of Order that we built at Bemis with Chris Vorhees, and added a couple more collaborative objects into the mix.

We are currently working on a series of vases, made in collaboration with painter Amanda Valdez. This collaboration started at Watershed this summer, and will continue over the next couple of months. The idea is combine both of our painting styles along with thrown forms to create one off pieces that reflect our individual practice but read as something in between art and design. These are just a couple examples of the first pieces made at Watershed.

Last summer while at Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts we made an ode to 2001:A Space Odyssey with Chris Vorhees, who is an amazing fabricator and artist. The final project is a monolith on wheels, that opens to reveal a room in an alternate future. This piece was shipped from Omaha to Cincinnati, and we haven't shown it to anyone. We are very excited to announce that finally have a show lined up at The Sculpture Center in Cleveland opening in mid September, where we will debut this piece along with several new works that have a space(ey) feel.

Jordan Tate on a series of pieces that combine both of our interests - decorative objects seen through a photographic lens and output through alternative means. None of us quite know where is this is going which is what keeps the images interesting.
