Hard Work, No Play
Brandon Thompson’s visual practice concentrates primarily on painting and sculptural forms, with Thompson acting as a cultural anthropologist. Through works that reflect his memories and community, the absurd, humorous, and emotive snapshots from everyday life are amplified in cartoonish pictorials.
Thompson now introduces a fox-like character, reminiscent of the African American folk trickster figures, Br’er Rabbit and Br’er Fox. In the folktales, Br’er Fox is always outwitted by Br’er Rabbit, no matter how smart and crafty he is. The fox character acts as a vehicle representing Thompson’s inner thoughts and the truths about the so-called “bad guy”, who might just be highly misunderstood.
In ‘Hard Work, No Play’, see the trials and tribulations of just trying to complete the necessary task of maintaining the lawn and the failed attempts of just trying to have a little fun.
Ciara Elle Bryant
Ciara Elle Bryant uses the photograph as well as different mediums to explore the realms of social injustice and bring awareness to cultural issues. Born in Miami Florida, Bryant is a Mixed Media artist residing in Dallas, Texas where she recently received her Bachelor’s degree in Arts and Performance with a concentration in Visual Arts from The University of Texas at Dallas.
“Server 3.0 serves as a space where identity, culture, and self-actualization can occupy a current sliver of time, all at once. Server exists as an origin story that encompasses a visual bibliography to my art practice. Server is a mixed media installation that incorporates: collage, photographs, audio, moving image, objects, and relics. When brought together, the installation becomes a life-sized view of this bibliography in the real, a space not hosted virtually but physically.”
