 Fred Tieken’s paintings are based on impressions from his life experiences. His inspiration might be something that happened yesterday or a half-century ago. Tieken uses narrative in his work and likens the way the words work with the visual elements.   After a lifetime of staying within the lines, first as a draftsman and then a graphic designer, Fred Tieken no longer worries about such things. He prefers to use a lot of color and continually strives to channel his inner child.

 Grace Hindle’s series stems from the physical nature of mold making. Seduced by the timing needed for the silicone and plaster to transform into a 3-dimensional object and having this form sitting in front of her, she had the urge to contextualize the objects, which was accomplished through photography. Grace Hindle’s decision to place these inanimate objects into living environments, implied a cinematic context.
