  • Tidal Concealment

    Photography by Byron Capo (33in. x 24in.)
    "From my childhood, the Vilano Beach Bridge was the epitome of an “erector set”. Its mechanical structure of steel bars, bolted together with a vertical draw was beyond fascination. As I grew older, so did the bridge and it was commonly referred to as the Green Devil, always breaking down. Time gave way to a more modern approach; sweeping lines, no draw and an endless flow of traffic. All that remains are the stumps of pilings that supported our family on the way to grand dads for more than 50 years. Infrared Print"

  • Isle of the Naiads

    Polymer clay, acrylics, beads by Shelby Clark (12in. x 18in.)
    **NFS**
    "“Isle of the Naiads” explores two literary histories: that of the anthropomorphic fox and that of the mythological figures, naiads. Depictions of foxes appear throughout the ages, from ancient Greece’s “Aesop’s Fables” to my favorite medieval text, Chaucer’s “The Nun’s Priest's Tale.” In each of these renditions, foxes are depicted as tricksters and often used to represent heresy, deceit, or the devil himself. Reynard the Fox, for instance, is a character formed in a literary cycle of allegorical Dutch, English, French and German fables, and from the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, there are approximately twenty-six different tales centered around Reynard. He lives within a society of other talking animals, all of which he manipulates for his own gains through thievery and betrayal. In “The Nun’s Priest’s Tale.” Reynard, or Rossel, appeals to Chauntecleer (a rooster’s) rather large ego, begging to hear Chauntecleer’s song. The moment that Chauntecleer begins to sing, Rossel/Reynard wraps his teeth around the distracted rooster’s neck, running off with him. I am fascinated by the role trickery plays within these depictions, which have continued well into today’s time with characters such as Disney’s animated Robin Hood. In “Isle of the Naiads,” I sculpted a naiad’s tail in place of a fox’s lower body, however. In Greek mythology, naiads are female water spirits that inhabit various bodies of freshwater, including streams and rivers. Beloved by humans for their alluring beauty, naiads inspired poets and were rumored to bring fertility to both lands and humans. Despite this, although, many renditions also presented naiads as dangerous and easily angered. The most notable of these myths is the tale of Nomia and Daphnis: Daphnis was a shepherd on Sicily, and the naiad, Nomia, fell madly in love with him. She vowed that if his loyalty were to ever sway, she would blind him. He was faithful for a time, but was soon seduced by a princess after becoming intoxicated with wine. Once Nomia discovered his infidelity, she not only blinded him, but also turned Daphnis to stone in her rage. Depictions of naiads continue to appear in various pieces of media, with recent retellings, such as those within the Narnia movies, presenting naiads as having mermaid-like tails, adding to their otherworldly nature. Regarding both depictions of foxes and naiads, I was inspired to create a sculpture that explored the shared qualities of these various texts and creatures. Primarily, I was fascinated by the complex narratives of both. While each is depicted as proud, clever, and in many respects, beautiful, these traits often lead to more unfavorable qualities which drive plots based upon jealousy or deceit. These traditions represent a rich literary history, and in turn, exciting ways to continue these conversations in today’s world through modern art. The result of this exploration is “Isle of the Naiads,” a hybrid creature inspired by those of yesterday, quite literally twisting its own tale in today’s time."

  • Saint Peter’s Basilica

    Photography by Olivia Castillo (16in. x 24in.)
    "The feeling of stepping foot in Saint Peter's Basilica is one I have trouble finding the words for which is why I had to photograph it. As beautiful as my picture may be, it doesn't do it justice. When you are walking through the basilica you see every meticulously detailed statue, arch, carving and can't help but be in awe. There is not a single corner of that place that wasn't thought about. The atmosphere alone can make the most unreligious person rethink going to church. It is a magical place and if you ever get the chance I highly suggest you see Saint Peter's Basilica."

  • Jael & Sisera Judges 4-21

    Photography by Christopher Casler (16in. x 24in.)
    "Jael figures famously in the Biblical account in the book of Judges, Chapter 4, when the Israelites defeated the far stronger Canaanites. Their famous general Sisera fled the battlefield, fearful and on foot, and begged Jael, a tentmaker's wife, to hide him from his enemies. He pleaded for something to drink; she gave him milk, and he fell asleep, whereupon she drove a tent stake through his head as he slept. Jael is celebrated for her heroism to this day."

  • Abolitionist Sojourner Truth

    Photography by Christopher Casler (16in. x 24in.)
    "This young lady portrays Sojourner Truth, the famous 19th Century abolitionist who escaped slavery and fought for the rights of women and all African Americans up to and after the Civil War, and so she is important to our model's own heritage. The model is posed stiffly as was common at a time when long exposures were necessary. The print was made in a warm tone and with vignetting reminiscent of photographs of that era."
