"The Enemy Within"

Years ago, Aubrey Rhodes "walked away from academia and the literary arts and began painting full-time."

She declares:

"On canvas I could employ symbolism and innuendo much more immediately and with more freedom than I could on a page restricted to 26 letters, black and white, and the rules of grammar."

"Tens of thousands of wildebeests pushing and shoving to cross the river..."

Susannah Kay, on the wildebeest migration process:

"Once most make it to a side, the lone calves cross back and forth again and again, trying to reconnect with their mothers from whom they have been separated in this brutal process. Those who cannot successfully reach the top succumb to nature's way and end up dying from injury or being eaten..."

"Mom and Bill"

Laura Makinen, on her work:
"Although most of the people in these old images are gone from this world, they reach out from the past and affect me."

" I see my work as similar to that of a dj. I am a visual sampler; I search through piles of [photographic] images to find those that resonate the most, then alter and present them to the world in a new form."

Sara Seinberg, on her submission:

"I remember in 2001 how I realized that for Americans, the sky would never be the same"...

"in New York and in Washington DC, our buildings fell. For days there were no planes overhead, just traveling birds, and we watched in loops on our televisions or out our windows as fax machines and bodies clamored to the ground. We watched as people jumped, windows exploded, glass heaved itself in daggers at pedestrians. We finally became members of civilization while the newsmen of the world hurled expletives at the people on those flying planes. We took our place in the post traumatic stress of the sky. We would never again look up in the same way. That was a beginning. That was a new way to be. And the birds have never looked more majestic."

About his work, Gregory Bartlett states:

"Being one that is small and compact in size, I find myself often gravitating towards the tiny and delicately detailed in life. My current investigations and studies are of urban landscapes that are intimate in gesture, obsessively detailed, and mostly mundane in nature."
