Dru Donovan: Scrum

In Scrum, black-and-white photographs and videos distill moments of physical negotiations in which force and care cannot be untwined. Bodies are arranged, posed, and tended to in ambiguous formations and steadied compositions. Balanced in precarious stasis, the viewer’s inability to understand the root or cause of the gesture is common in all of the work, bringing to light that conflict and collaboration can coincide.

Cara Tomlinson: Betwixt and …

Betwixt and … includes paintings and drawings that explore the capacity for human and non-human forms to intertwine, blend, and create a pictorial language. This language becomes an interchangeable alphabet, forming an ecology of bodies both linked and situated, open and closed, exploring boundaries of what is inside and outside.
