Stephanie Patton

pause is Stephanie Patton’s third solo exhibition with the gallery. The works included continue an exploration of issues relating to physical and mental health, and carry themes of healing, comfort and self-preservation.

Jenny LeBlanc and Kyle Bravo

This is collaborators, and husband and wife, Jenny LeBlanc and Kyle Bravo’s first exhibition with the gallery. Their multi-sensory installation in the gallery’s New Media Room explores the ordinariness of everyday life alongside an existential search for meaning and purpose. The brightly painted and precariously stacked cardboard boxes create a delightful, yet also threatening sense of anticipation. Humor, rebellion, strategy and deceit transform commonplace into mysterious and magical contraptions. Read More

Lee Deigaard

In her first solo exhibition with the gallery, artist Lee Deigaard presents collaborative nocturnal portraits of animal protagonists and the emotional and physical landscapes we mutually inhabit. Circulatory systems, ecological processes of flow, immersion, and convergence inform much of her work, which explores animal autonomy and human trespass. Read More

Courtney Egan

Circulation of Light features three distinct projection-based works, which meld technology with nature. Crystal Gazers features groupings of cast glass medallions infused with light from a single channel projection cascading from forged metal branches. Fountain is a wall-mounted collection of cast glass “bottles” with projected water spilling from one to the next. Finally, Sleepwalker is a motion-activated video projection offering the viewer the experience of witnessing the budding and then contraction of a single bloom. Read More

Dave Greber

7000-Day Candles, Dave Greber’s third exhibition with the gallery, explores the notions of spirituality, technology and transhumanism, and touches on spiritual folkways celebrated in New Orleans’ history. The installation, vibrant and revelatory, consists of four video monitor-based objects and a Stasseo (stained-glass-video) – a technique the artist developed utilizing multiple projections, painting and 3D elements to realize large, installed-video compositions.

Robert Hannant

"I Don’t Understand" is a digital video installation by multi-media artist Robert Hannant. The single projection made up of multiple videos, each with its own significant soundtrack, symbolizes the fractured environment of a stranger’s mind. Each “window” of this mind laid bare is relatable on some level, forcing viewers to find themselves simultaneously caught in the uncomfortable role of both voyeur and object of scrutiny. The installation invites a personal experience, allowing each viewer to control his/her engagement. Read More

Courtney Egan

Courtney Egan’s projection-based sculptural installations meld nature with technology, delivering an experience that is both pleasing and disconcerting. The ethereal projections – converging on walls, floors and sculptural elements – are inspired by the growing frequency of human exposure to nature via computers or television. Egan creates stunning yet “subtly impossible, hybrid tableaus” which envelope the viewer in a conversation between memory of the natural world and a new experience with a plant or flower. She explains the fundamental irony of the experience, stating, “We get closer and farther away from the natural world simultaneously when we experience it through a technological lens.” Read More
