Artists Elvira M. Dayel, Sharon Kyle Kuhn, and Victoria Welling construct an invented, fragmented, and reassembled environment. The artists explore the balance and unavoidable conflicts between beauty and repulsion, chaos and order, and the never ending battle to resolve shifting urban realities.

Elvira Dayel explores personal interpretations of reality. New constructs become a vital part of nature, offering a resolution to our struggle to obtain balance in our built environment. Abstracted and delineated shapes depict new landscapes we might all fit into.

Sharon Kyle Kuhn turns the chaos of fragmented pieces of construction debris into orderly compositions that tightly hold together. She explores the small details of urban life that most people would describe as ‘ugly’ or often overlook as irregular pieces of industrial materials.

Victoria Welling explores relationships with nature while stimulating sensory responses with materials, texture, and composition. The result is a body of work that leads the viewer down a path toward sensory overload with a delicate yet bold dialogue between beauty and repulsion.
