Deborah Hake Brinckerhoff seeks to represent and communicate human character in her work. Painted solely with a palette knife her style is unmistakable. So richly colored and generously laid on are her surfaces they are a delight in themselves. Brinckerhoff says “My paintings are representational of the subject, but not necessarily accurate to real life.  I hope to achieve balance by teasing out the connections between the uncertainties and conflicts in life as well as the exuberance and joy of what it means to be in this world.”
Dan Toone’s graceful architectural sculptures are inspired by the challenge of using scrap, reclaimed metal and recycled materials. “I enjoy taking normally rigid and structural steel and turning it into smooth unrestrained flowing lines and forms. As I work with patinas, I am always amazed at the individual personality that is revealed in each piece of steel.  The rusted steel alongside stainless steel or aluminum complement each other and together they create a pleasing contrast of color, form, and texture.”

Ed Bateman, "Specimen No. 10", pigment print, 20 X 20 inches
Experiencing Ed Bateman’s digital imagery is a bit like entering a strange high-tech plain; the atmosphere is fragmented, enhanced, multiplied and/or skewed. Clever arrangements, often relating to scientific theories or lending insight to obscure themes, draw the viewer in and are fascinating to explore. “Although some elements in my work depict ‘real’ things, many objects have never had a tangible physical existence. These elements are modeled completely inside the world of a computer. They are ghosts made of nothing more substantial than numbers, yet they seemingly share a tangible space with objects that have both physicality and history. My method of working mimics light itself, one beam at a time, in a process that can take from hours to days to complete and involve literally trillions of calculations. My work appears photographic and often comments on photography (or other processes of lens-based image creation), but my works are not photographs.”
Bateman’s work has been shown internationally in over twenty countries and is included in several museum collections.

Coming Up: Paintings by Earl Jones and Ceramic Work by Larry Elsner in Main Gallery; Paintings by Lebanese artist Marwan Nahle in downstairs Dibble Gallery.
