Beginnings: three early career Wisconsin artists Alyssa Krause, Daniel McCullough, and LaNia Sproles
March 22 @ 8:00 AM - April 22 @ 5:00 PM
LaNia Sproles is exhibiting large cutout mixed media figurative collages. The philosophies of self-perception, queer and feminist theories, and inherent racial dogmas are essential to her work.
Alyssa Krause’s paintings question the parameters of perception. Her work focuses on the nuances in how an image is recognized. Rules are set up before painting as a way to create a border between herself and the work, making each painting surprising and fresh.
Daniel McCullough investigates the atmosphere of place through chance-based approaches to photography. He uses the mysterious space between the camera lens and outside world to make his work. Through physical manipulations onto the surface of film prior to exposure, McCullough incorporates expressive gestures into photographic observations. He combines more straightforward digital captures with his hand-manipulated images on film to create a layered view of his subjects.
