   Shoshanna Weinberger    Born in Kingston, Jamaica, Weinberger’s work relates to her Caribbean-American background and draws strongly on the complexity of heritage and assumed norms as she goes about defining the female archetype. Referencing herself among a sea of antiquated stereotypes, adolescent memory and current subjects as a source, Weinberger renders her female muses as excessive, sexualized, some passive and others dominant that question notions of beauty.

  Gianluca Bianchino   Through multimedia sculpture and installation I transcend my understanding of spatial dimensions. The work engages science and architecture in an exploration of the underlying geometry of nature and the built environment. But the attempt to fully understand complex ideas in physics and astronomy almost always fails resulting in works that reside in an independent metaphysical space.
