Their works on display include an exploration of Midwestern family craft traditions; enigmatic comic narratives; vinyl and fabric installations with a twist; and oil paintings that blur fantasy and reality.
- Docksey, a native of Chippewa Falls living in St. Paul, paints “spaces where objects are assembled to perform supernatural functions. My paintings serve as a documentation capturing an impressionistic portrayal.”
- Kayser, of Minneapolis, uses fabric in her installations to examine “the synthetic treatment applied to self, acting as a covering to hide the surface beneath, much like a connected skin or shell.”
- Lange, of St. Paul, is “interested in the intermingling of mark-making through paint and manipulation of synthetic textile. This series represents a time of disorder and false positivity through a socially distant year.”
- Steuck, of Minneapolis, is a “performance-based moving-image installation artist” who “explores queer narratives while integrating utopic theory influenced by digital platforms and historical imagery.”
- Wieland, a native of Menomonie living in St. Paul, has self-published two comics. “My approaches to comics vary from autobiographical, linear storytelling to more abstract, absurd and surreal.”
The artists have exhibited regionally and nationally.
