Acrylic and watercolor grids and overlapping lines, gestured brush strokes and bold color are the first impressions when seeing the new work by Patricia Ingersoll. Ingersoll continues her studies of the merging of organic and geometric elements in nature and how they compare and contrast with the human condition. Her explorations of subjects found in nature, such as water, dense woods, vines, plants introduces challenges in the process of deconstructing the pictorial plane, or breaking it apart, in order to reconstruct it as individual, but equal parts. Through this process of mapping and diagramming with line, she is exploring and recording where these elements intersect pictorially.

Constance Culpepper is a contemporary artist located in Philadelphia, PA (USA). Her large, vibrantly colored oil paintings primarily depict domestic scenes, including interiors, still life, the female figure, and chairs. The paintings are representational, yet deconstructed, and full of pattern. With her paper collages, Culpepper is more abstract, yet the themes of domesticity can still be found.
