Charlotte Taylor is an experimental animator, teaching Film/Video in the rural mountains of Western North Carolina. Her research ranges from digital animation and handmade film to optical toys, and she is particularly interested in alternative forms of production and presentation.
Working within the legacy of abstraction in painting, Juan Iribarren is interested in that seemingly impossible and contradictory juxtaposition of geometry, the luminous and the atmospheric. Iribarren conceives his works to be experienced as abstract paintings, even though each one refers to a specific visual event to which it remains strictly faithful. The colors, the empty fields, and the segments structured by gestural brushstrokes depend on specific visual circumstances, the most obvious one being the empty wall of his studio, showing the openness of its flat surface and the diversity of light and shadow that are produced there throughout the day and evening.
