Brian Willmont's work builds on the new American folktale with Technicolor paintings that are tarnished with American history, Pre-Renaissance and Persian miniature painting, worship, dreamscapes, blacklight posters, and the fantastic.

Alex Lukas' current work explores images of the destruction of the American landscape. Inspired by contemporary imagery in various media including blockbuster movies and the evening news where there is a dominance of images alluding to the story of an America destroyed. His fictitious drawings are more obscure than narrative, paralleling real life, meant to be slightly confusing while hinting at a sense of unease and anxiety.
