Throughout their various media, these artists use humor and exaggerated forms to address ways in which symbology attempts to transcend a sort of spirituality and patriotic nostalgia. However, these poetic attempts are often consumed by the very theater that they seek to challenge. It is inside of this interrupted symbology, that these artists' works are able to joke with, and surprise us.
Rose Nestler (NYC) is an interdisciplinary artist focusing in sculpture and video. She received her MFA degree from Brooklyn College in 2017 where she was a Dedalus Fellowship nominee and a Graduate Teaching Fellow. Her work has been exhibited at a variety of galleries including, Underdonk, Smack Mellon, CRUSH Curatorial, and CUCHIFRITOS Gallery and Project Space. Most recently she exhibited work at L.O.G. in Chapel Hill, and with Beverly’s / Good Weather Gallery in Little Rock, AK. In January 2018 she had her first solo show at Ortega y Gasset Projects in Brooklyn, NY. Nestler has been an artist-in-residence at Chashama Workspace Program, Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts, Vermont Studio Center and Byrdcliffe Artists Colony.
Natalie Baxter (NYC) received her MFA from the University of Kentucky in 2012 and her BA in Fine Art from the University of the South in Sewanee, TN in 2007. Baxter’s recent work uses sewing and quilting techniques learned from her grandmother to create soft sculptures, that playfully push controversial political issues. Her work has been exhibited recently at Sears-Peyton Gallery and Mulherin Gallery in New York, Purdue University, Yale University, Spring/Break art fair, Aa Collections in Vienna, Schaufenster Gallery in Berlin and has been featured in The New York Times, Vice, Hyperallergic, Huffington Post, and The Guardian. Baxter has been an artist in residence at The Wassaic Project, a fellowship recipient at the Vermont Studio Center and a Queens Arts Fund grant recipient.
Samuel Chun (NYC) received his BFA from The Cooper Union. Sam Chun’s work is on view concurrently at The Abrons Art Center. Although born and raised in the states, Chun experiences an on-going cultural metamorphosis ever since he moved to New York. Chun’s upbringing as a Korean American has led him to research Korean Neo-Confucianism to explore not just where he comes from, but why. Chun utilizes this research in his work, as he investigates cultural displacement, as his work asks for a sort of psychological viewer interaction. Neo-Confucianists believed the Yin and Yang (The Supreme Ultimate) to be a singularity, not a duality, like the western perspective will have you believe. They are equals yet opposite, and never functioning separately.
Franklin Cain-Borgers (NYC) received his BFA from the Columbus College of Art and Design in Ohio, and is currently working towards his MFA at The School of Visual Arts. He has done projects in collaboration with Roy G Biv Gallery, Columbus, Mint Collective, Columbus, and Skylab Gallery, Columbus. His multi-media work seeks to express the multiplicity of our subjective social experience. Sitting within a certain refusal that plays directly with capitalist value and social systems, Franklin’s work invokes an incoherence of personal and collective history, that disrupts the indexical nature of these systems.
