American Beauty
The Opulent Pre-Depression Architecture of Detroit

Jarmain's pictures owe some of their formal impact to Detroit's scabrous physical ruins: the camera, a disembodied eye, an extract beauties from the textures of decay. His work gets some of its topical edge from Detroit's recent declaration of hopeless insolvency. Many critical observers identify the Motor City's breakdown with the functional bankruptcy of industrialism and the moral bankruptcy of finance capitalism

Sasha Rogers " Stillness"

September 18, 2014 - October 12, 2014

Featured artists: Sasha Rogers

Opening night Sep 18th 6:00-9:00pm

The horizon figures prominently in Sasha Rogers work pushing and pulling the eye back and forth, simultaneously separating the voids and uniting them in the same dance. Horizon lines are illusions in themselves. We imagine that we can see them, or reach that point where they ultimately touch, but, in reality, that point does not exist. It is an invented mark for an ambiguous state.

Sasha Rogers has been a professional painter for over 20 years, receiving her Masters of Painting in 1987. Artists such as William Turner, Mark Rothko, Agnes Martin, Antoni Tapies, and her father, Canadian abstractionist, Otto Rogers, have influenced Rogers’ work. What collectively draws her to these great artists is their dedication to evocative metaphors rather than literal descriptions. She states, “They invite rather than prescribe.”
