Anna Breininger constructs situations of irregularity by using architecturally charged patterns and motifs. Tape rips, forms fade, and surfaces shift from horizontal to vertical. Erica Mahinay is seduced by surface in its ability to exist as a skin, a membrane, a superficial definition, but also in its position as a boundary. Her work references the body and the self as well as landscape or interior spaces. Lauren Satlowsk constructs the foundation for her work using the common figurine.The psychedelic imagery prevalent in her paintings and sculptures are the result of both a sincere desire toward transcendence and a self-aware puppet show.

ETC" is not a theme per se; the works in this exhibition were chosen based on their intrinsic virtues and ability to compliment one another.

Seeing the work together in a new context, I was especially drawn to the ways in which materials served as a motivating factor. Much of the work challenges my notions of what certain materials are, what they do, and what they can become.

Art to Live By, March 26th - April 7th in the Dodge Painting Gallery

Art to Live By is an exhibition that explores art as a context for life. Works within this exhibition are made for particular events or to serve specific functions; such as, a painting by which to love someone, a photo near which to break up with someone, an object by which to eat breakfast. These works provide an opposition to art as objects to be visited in an institution.
