Ben Evans translates stellar constellations into scientifically proportioned three-dimensional steel models, incorporating various motifs attached to those star configurations by cultures across the world.
Jenny Phelps‘ abstract mark-making is interrupted by moments of representation, mimicking the minute moments in the urban landscape which she examines. Degraded bricks and leaves sprouting from sidewalk cracks are focal points of these process-based explorations of micro-environments within Los Angeles.
