WHAT'S ON THE WALL?

Evan Meaney

CEIBAS: TO HOLD A FUTURE BODY SO CLOSE TO ONE'S OWN

Iowa-based media artist Evan Meaney's 2008 video installation, inspired by the Mayan myth of the Ceibas tree, is comprised of moving image portraits of people in various states of transition. As Meaney intervenes in the digital files, the portraits become corrupted, glitched, and broken, ultimately raising questions of allegory and impermanence.

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings


Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
