Aimée Beaubien’s Woven Imagery

Collecting images like objects, Aimée slices her photographic documentation into pieces that are then woven into large three-dimensional forms. These works, which often hang collectively from the ceiling, are filled with information and bits of data from friends, family, and strangers’ personal collections. By intricately collaging the photographs Aimée allows personal histories to align with those from collected sources, using photographs taken at places such as the Roger Brown Study Collection and Museum of Contemporary Photography.

JORDAN_MARTINS05

Layers permeate each aspect of Jordan’s practice, collages produced in resin, flatbed scans, and on video. Currently producing work created on flatbed scanners, Jordan prints, cuts, and layers back in elements that include photographs, paint, and imagery from books. Moving these pieces around on the scanner, he attempts to finds the perfect composition, often reworking original source material until the audience is unable to tell which elements are scanned, photographed or painted.

Enlarging and compressing images he takes of textures on the street, Esau creates photographic collages that explore environments of which we all traverse. By repeating their way through several iterations of collages, the images mimic the subject in which they are derived and layer their own experiences in a similar fashion to the textures they contain. Recently Esau has moved into a project focused on insistence, using found materials to supply the content for his now colorful compositions.

BILL_OBRIEN02

Drawn to physical forms of making, Bill produces ceramics, drawings, and collages, often using humor within each of his mediums to address a latent darkness in his work. Through his physical processes he is able to address a range of emotional states, calling attention to the way his own body expresses these forms of consciousness. Flipping between gentle and aggressive making, he moves from quiet creations to those that are quite heavy and messy, producing ceramic pieces that are confusing or hard to reconcile.

Phyllis’s studio in her Greektown loft appears as a collage itself, filled with drawers and portfolios that contain the scraps and images that she layers onto her complex works. Phyllis’s pieces have the quality of a collected chaos, abstracted narratives of fairytales and erotic encounters weaved throughout her large-scale pieces.

Chad Kouri's Unique Multiples

Chad’s studio shares the same space as The Post Family, a studio he co-founded that encompasses projects ranging from curatorial to woodworking. His personal practice is one that has stemmed out of his design background, collages imitating the same principals as jazz. Chad’s process involves carefully selecting the right composition of specified shapes and colors, rearranging their display over and over to create simple, yet eye-catching arrangements.
