Jeremy Zierau explores human communication and the methods we use to process data. He creates semi-objective objects, renderings, and videos that focus on the late 20th-century ideology of artistic inclusiveness and the rise of the Arts & Craft stores. Zierau holds a BFA from The Cooper Union School of Art.



Chantal Wnuk is a painter and sculptor currently living and working in San Diego, CA. She was born in Houston, TX and received her BFA from the University of Texas at Austin. Using found materials and imagery, she focuses on the vulnerability of being alone versus that of being bound to another human or object.

Inspired by the growing disparity between ideologies in the United States Kim Niehans has created "We Love", a series of paintings that explore the individual and the collective. Niehans produces expressive imagery of animals and humans that capture psychological scenes of alienation.

Robert Andrade’s abstract, conceptual works explore the politics of modern architecture that are strategically designed to influence our movements and experiences. Andrade works within a range of familiar construction materials including concrete, aluminum, plexiglass and steel. With over fifty percent of the world’s population living in urban areas, Andrade critically engages the urban architectural structures and materials that we encounter daily. He holds a Masters of Fine Arts from Cornell University and a Bachelors of Fine Arts from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
