SELECTED ARTIST BIOS

Amy Cella is a San Francisco based artist who uses light and shadow, mirrors and glass, and dust and dirty walls in her photographs to document her experience of space.

Lindsey Filowitz is a Bay Area photographer whose series Untitled explores a woman’s transformation from honeymoon to heartbroken, and challenges photography’s relationship to truth by juxtaposing memoir with fiction.

Analía Gutiérrez is an Argentinian photographer based in San Francisco.  Her series Exposed focuses on portraying the gaze of different women through shop windows.

ALEXANDMUSHI is a collaboration between two artists Alex Nichols and Mushi Wooseong James, who consider themselves to be “artists as anthropologists.”  Using art systems to isolate different forms of verbal and nonverbal languages across multiple cultures they examine the unifying core forms of communication and connection.

J.K. Lavin currently lives and works in Venice, California.  Her series Crisis of Experience explorers the politics of identity, and consists of Polaroid self-portraits that she took on a daily basis from 1979 to 1987.

Rachel Liu is a project-based artist, art educator, and fine art photographer specializing in traditional photographic capture and printing methods.  The hand painted silver gelatin prints in her series The Family Album re-contextualize her own family’s photographic archives to create her own fictional family album.

Alana Perino is an Oakland-based photographer whose is drawn to issues of land-ownership and identity.  Her American Terrarium series highlights the curation disguised as preservation that occurs at American heritage landmarks.

Mark Jayson Quines is a Bay Area photographer whose series NOBODY explores the desire for apex through the symbol of Michael Jordan.

Gary Thompson is a photographer based in Maryland.  His series Displaced Persons are informed by what he understands to be the structure of dreams.  His photographs communicate a sense of the familiar anticipating something significant or uncanny, and are a rendering of anxiety about reality.

Michael Thurin lives and works in Southern California.  Their series Recomposition (Phrase) is part of an ongoing iterative project that imagines a future performance of a dancing body which does not yet exist.

Mitsu Yoshikawa is a San Francisco based artist whose images explores bas-relief technique by layering the positive and negative prints to create 3 dimensional images of leaves and plants.
