Caitlin McCormack Lostwithall

Lostwithall is a place inhabited by the remains of familiar, yet foreign, beasts; a tenebrous forest permeated by notions of faded nostalgia and unaccountable loss, where memory's authenticity is overtaken by the incessant buckling of time. Creatures gnarled by the woods' amnesia wither and decay, their skeletal forms disintegrating into delicate fibers, which tenaciously venture to reform themselves as impressions of commonplace objects. The works in this series are attempts to bind the loose ends of obscure recollections, which have nearly dissolved in the wake of memory's transmutation. Each piece embodies the remaining husk of a single experience, like a piece of string tied around one's finger for remembrance a symbol of identity, worn as one is engulfed by the forest's aphotic oblivion.

Genie Mélisande Catalyst

Catalyst is an exploration of evolution in both humanity and on an individual scale. This theme continues in the vein of the Tree of Life mythology that is fundamental to cultures worldwide, and maps the evolution of cosmic energy to solid matter and the ascension of living beings to a higher plane of consciousness. In harmonizing scientific theories with the spiritual realm, this archetypal journey leads us to a crossroads and urgent questions about our next phase. The new frontier that Terry Pratchett called "the place where the falling angel meets the rising ape".

Genie Mélisande is a contemporary magic realist painter who was born in Manhattan, studied fine art in England, and is now based in Los Angeles. Throughout a nomadic upbringing that spanned over 20 countries and many different cultures, the one enduring thread has been a need to reach the heart of the human condition through art. She aims to reconcile both visible and metaphysical archetypes in ways that are new yet true, and beautiful yet challenging.
