Kyle Butler
Mortality Tantrums


Across media including drawing, painting, sculpture, video, and performance, the work of Kyle Butler addresses multiple ideas—parallels between the built environment and human behavior with that sphere; the interplay of competing and cooperating systems and the limitations of those systems; fluidity in the face of bureaucracy; and ordered conduct as a remedy to the ambiguity of socialization.
 

Chantal Rousseau
Harbingers of Doom


Behind the ongoing gif work of Chantal Rousseau resides a drawing and painting practice. Electronically realized, her gifs are clearly hand-rendered, rather than cobbled together from other more technological means. It might seem like a subtle distinction but less so when one considers the work within the broad terrain of other electronically-based aphorisms such as emoticons, memes, and screen savers.
