By their variant investigations in video installation and sculpture, the artists invoke the vastness of the unnamed and the unseen. They go beneath the surface to search, explore—to see and bring into our view the revelations of their questions. In Shanna Maurizi’s new work in film and cast glass, ideas become solid objects and vice versa, as if shape is a thought form and these forms are imprinted on our memory. Corinne Spencer’s work in video is rooted in the black feminine body as it moves through space, seeping below time's surface to move inward. The body becomes the gateway to the universe and its mysteries.
