Curated Artists Here you can find out a little abit about the artists that have work at the exhibition. They come from a variety of places, but they are all tied together by sexuality.
Jenny Dowd explores space and movement with a series of steel and Egyptian Paste vessels. The boats hover, dive and flock overhead while exploring the gallery in a playful dialogue.
Using multiple projections, Lindsey Glover transforms the Loft into a space for the exploration between perception, memory and experience. She
Ruth Boerefijn collects photograph and video images that are later re-examined to find parallels in context, all the while focusing on the capture and storage of time.
My process is experiential. I make visits beyond my self: to Iceland, to the store where the fishermen buy their supplies, to the library. The feel of manuscripts, photographs and maps give my hands something to articulate when later,
Mayme Kratz in my studio, they work knotting and looping lengths of fishing line. It loses form over time, and can be reshaped; it is resilient. The line is a symbol of connection, of reaching into the depths for nourishment.
Mayme Kratz creates art from the natural life of the desert that surrounds her Phoenix home and studio. Viewing collecting as a way of archiving memory, she assembles a variety of natural forms—tangled birds’ nests, feathers, bones, seeds, snakes, and cicada wings—and captures them
submerged in resin to create rhythmic, abstract sculptures and reliefs. “My collected specimens celebrate the endless cycles of change and rebirth in nature,” Kratz has said.

Text is also a material with a memory and a shape. I struggle to arrange words so they can articulate beyond history to character, story, felt experience, and new possibility.
She has also created a variety of videos and installations, including an interactive outdoor sculpture made of found tumbleweeds meant to disintegrate over time.
