Sun Prairie artist Julie Ganser's multi-layered assemblage/paintings combine craft and plant materials, found objects, and sheer fabrics to form a "shadow box" effect. Ganser investigates how seasonal or periodic changes in climate can serve as visual metaphors for cyclical changes in human mood states. Madison installation artist Jeremy Wineberg utilizes drawing, painting and sculptural practices as a way to mirror natural and cultural events and to build form in a complex way. Wineberg uses a dramatic sense of movement between these processes to create an environment that questions assumptions about the everyday culture we live in.
