Morgan Brig

Morgan BrigRummaging around just under the surface is a favorite past time of mine. Interesting emotions live there which I love to dig up, take apart and reassemble. I'm looking for clarification or a new understanding of the transitions and contradictions that often lie within.
Capturing the complexity of emotion is important to me, and the environments where my figures reside have multiple layers in order to explore that complexity. Those layers include etched metal detail, enamel patinas, and found objects that suggest the old and familiar, but ask to be viewed in a new light. Hand-built ceramic faces allow me to bring the subtlety of expression to each piece.
Finally, there is the layer of playfulness. It is inspired by my love of old metal and tin toys and the need to lay humor right next to truth or fear in my work. My hope is with the playfulness there, the whole conundrum gets a chance to delight despite its complexity, and be just a little more understood.

Alfred Harris

Alfred Harris"I work with paper and paint and am drawn to certain materials, colors and textures. I love to combine disparate things to create a harmonious piece. I might use different kinds of textured paper, map fragments, the tissue paper of dress patterns, flight patterns, Braille paper, pages from old Sears Roebuck catalogues. I like the feel of paper; the translucency of it. I like its fibrousness; its organicity: the fact that someone mulched up all these ingredients with rice to make it. Pieces of paper are like a window to another world altogether. I can create a play between what’s in the window and what I’ve done with it, how it interacts with other elements in the work. In that way paper can add another dimension to things. I can create texture with paper and overlap it to create different colors. Paper is a forgiving material—if something doesn’t work it can be used in another way." Alfred will demo his art process at our September meeting.
