About Artist Kevin Boylan: “Through the years, my work has evolved from my beginnings as a potter to my current stage as a mixed media sculptor and glassblower. Exploring new mediums, learning new techniques, and examining my most immediate surrounds; my process almost always results with a non-objective, abstract form.
The common thread is that my work is a personal journal. While my hands are creating an object that I’ve overthrough without sketching; my mind is contemplating ideas, relationships, past experiences, or daily occurrences in my life.
Because I use internal reflection of sorts to create my work, I consider it to be self-portrait work, and my latest body of work has become more figurative.”
About Artist Auburn Isaak: “I draw my color palette from nature in its most elusive form; notes defined realism in its physical form, but as I interpret an depict it in my mind. This allows me to use abstract as a function to create the landscape that surrounds me. I choose to incorporate my movement, discoveries, and intuition during my painting process. The paint becomes the medium that inter-operates the human experience and a record of that occurrence.”
