marc t. wise – Normal Operations

Normal Operations deals with the residues and presentations of the production of utilities. Through repurposing and re-presenting familiar materials, Wise explores the problematics of certainty and questions the definitions of function and utility, as well as uselessness. The transformation from raw material to functional object to something else entirely allows for a recognition and reconfiguration of loss, and a realization of the latent failure inherent in notions of construction and its inevitable collapse.

marc t. wise works in paint, sculpture, language, and photography. His work has been seen in galleries and project spaces throughout the United States. His written work has appeared in The Seneca Review, Los Angeles Review, Quarterly West, and elsewhere. He holds a M.A. from the University of California Davis and a M.F.A. from the School of The Art Institute of Chicago.

David Raleigh – Push and Pull

Push and Pull stems from Raleigh’s interest in the way living things regulate their internal and external environments, constantly seeking balance, both psychologically and physiologically. The work in this show is about the struggle to find that balance. Raleigh creates figures, shapes and marks that describe the rough, unkempt, imperfect, humorous, and dysfunctional parts of our bodies, minds, and world.

David Raleigh’s work has been featured in New American Paintings Magazine volume 144 and 126. He has participated in numerous juried art shows and shown his work in solo and group exhibitions across Utah. He holds an Associate of Art from Snow College and a BFA from Brigham Young University. In the fall of 2022, he will be an MFA candidate at The University of Wisconsin, Madison.
