North Korean Perspectives
JULY 23 – OCT 4, 2015
The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), or North Korea, is also known as the Hermit Kingdom because it is one of the most reclusive states in the world. North Korea’s citizens are not allowed to travel abroad, there is no internet connection to the outside world, and the flow of information is almost completely controlled by the government. North Korean Perspectives seeks to present two different points of view of this nation – the government’s official version of North Korea juxtaposed against the work of artists who offer alternative observations of the country.

Tabitha Soren: Fantasy Life
April 25th – June 6th
Twelve years in the making, Fantasy Life documents the myths of American life that pervade our society. This series explores the fantasies that define America: Manifest Destiny, the romantic idea of the restless wanderer, the hopeful idea that failure is just a step on the road to greatness, the notion that the pursuit of fame and fortune is also the pursuit of happiness, the belief that to secure one’s identity, one must seek to stand apart from the community. Fantasy Life expands upon these beliefs thought to be truths through a captivating series of portraits and landscapes that engage the audience and shift their perspective of baseball.

With the rise of digital cameras and smart phones, beautiful photography has become common and ubiquitous. In order to instill value in his photography, Rubin started to distort his photography through bringing in elements of painting, sculpture and collage. The result is a collection of fantastical images that capture the imagination and project an unsettling sense of beauty.
