Victim Shame, Body Blame *
Christy E. O'Connor

* Postponed until further notice; check this site for new dates.

Victim Shame, Body Blame is an analysis of American rape culture, toxic masculinity and the ever lasting effects our patriarchal society has had on both men and women, as we continue to blame and shame the victims of sexual violence, as perpetrators are rendered free from culpability. This body of work is an analysis on the amalgamation of victim shaming tropes that men and women are taught throughout their lives, both passively and actively, through social norms, pop culture, our educational and legal systems, religious establishments, and familial influences and upbringing.

An online Space for Artists

9 Months 2 Seasons
Myke Karlowski

Myke Karlowski’s work focuses on the passage of time and his own experiences with time-space synesthesia. The palette throughout the work translates moments and units of time into color. Routine layering and manipulation of the painting surface further exposes each piece to time through accumulation and erosion. Each painting is a journal of real and personal events and an artifact reflecting its own history of development.

New Paintings
David Bender

The complex interconnectedness of everything. It's a pretty grandiose statement, but it's really just another way of saying that we are all connected; made from the same stuff that formed our Sun, Earth and the rest of the universe. The group of paintings that will be exhibited are about his presence in the universe.
