Michael Johansson creates sculpture and installation from found objects, fitting objects together like a puzzle.  The result focuses attention on post-industrial manufacturing and disposability.

Jessica Stockholder’s work operates between traditional genres and corresponding expectations. Embracing vibrant color, improvisatory spirit and a diverse range of found objects and commonplace materials, Stockholder’s complex site-specific installations challenge spatial boundaries, often incorporating and/or overflowing the architecture of the spaces for which they are developed.  Walls, ceilings, and floors are created or cut into, creating spaces that feel at once public and private, together with a sense of being simultaneously inside and outside – or neither.  Generous applications of brightly colored paint to portions of objects and walls blur the line between painting and sculpture.
