Jennifer Locke

Jennifer Locke - <em>Actions</em>
Jennifer Locke - <em>Actions</em>

The work of San Francisco artist Jennifer Locke examines power structures in relation to voyeurism, the body, and technological mediation. Working in performance, short-form video, and digital photography, Locke's work uses the body (often hers) as bait within a paradigm that references the artist/model relationship, BDSM, and more recently, wrestling. Locke's camera functions as the voyeur mediating these relationships and creating a framework within which Desire is rearticulated, disciplined, and delivered through its presence and its gaze. Locke positions herself as artist, as desired object, and as voyeur in an attempt to dominate the viewer but is ultimately subsumed by the truly dominant performer, the camera.

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.
