Nathan Lynch statement:
Working in fired clay and wood I started making three-dimensional abstract representations of events. Then I manipulated those events and gave them bends and shadows to articulate the way that the history of an event is told, or stories are relayed. As if accumulating another layer, the story changes over time with emphasizing, forgetting and retelling. The history of an event becomes a collection of half-truths and partial views. Consider the news. There can be a strong dissonance between what actually happened and what is told/experienced/retold/represented/read. As I worked I was thinking about personal, cultural and political conflicts and the benefit of adopting a generous allowance for differences. But that thinking took place during the last presidency when multiple points of view made sense. www.nathanlynch.com

Em Meine statement:
A constellation contained on a piece of paper, a vessel with no point of entry, a map that's also a sculpture turned back upon itself - these drawings represent things that aren't real, or can't be. The work addresses containment and confining - layered webs, tethered stars, and closed circuits. Each drawing is a contained thought - self-sufficient, but perhaps better understood in the context of a sea of other thoughts, where ideas can respond to and communicate with one another. www.emmeine.com
