"My pieces are about imaginary places, mostly colorful abstract landscapes that are an escape and a dose of reality." Karmimadeebora McMillian's artwork features vibrant colors that draw the viewer in. Both her abstract landscapes and figurative works are distinctive in their bright colors and geometric shapes. McMillan writes: "Color and identity go hand in hand in my work. Found black dolls and characters from the Black Panthers Coloring Book, that was created by a subsidiary of the FBI called Cointel, make up the figures that appear in my paintings.

Constant/Change Highlight: Michael Clapp
GreenHill Celebrates 40 Years of Winter Show

"Michael Clapp’s research explores myriad modes of representation to speculate on ‘scales of consciousness.’ His work co-opts the idea of scale and translates it across a range of dynamics and across matters of degree. There is a keen interest in how a traditional literacy of design is affected by more technical modes of communication and production. Investigations span a range of two-dimensional imagery to time-based projective overlays in order to interrogate topics beyond dimension. Through the work of SCHEMATA|studio, he seeks to challenge the traditional relationship between metric analysis and ephemeral understanding. He contends that this ever fragile dichotomy has ...

SHOP PICK | JOHN D. RICHARDSThis spring we are carrying John D. Richard's whimsical assemblage sculptures in our shop. John has a fantastic sense of humor, and you'll find jokes hidden in some of his artworks. Just a few of our favorites:Cesar said "vini, vidi, velcro" - I came, I saw, I stuck around.My father was a baker, so naturally I'm very well bred.Take the bull by the tail, not by the horns. Then you can let go when you want to. Read about John, in his own words: "I live in America where we throw out more stuff than many countries produce. I use trash because it's available, plentiful, inexpensive and symbolic of our rather wasteful society. I am easily inspired by spark plugs, ...

Constant/Change Artist Highlight: Megan Bostic
GreenHill Celebrates 40 Years of Winter Show

“I put my work into the community with the intention of increasing the conversation that surrounds death, grief, and loss.”  Grief and loss are a central theme of the work of Megan Bostic. Her work serves as a visual representation of inner emotional turmoil stemming from feelings of loss. As these topics are often difficult for one to speak clearly about, the work becomes an articulation of these feelings. Through her sculptures and installation pieces, Bostic weaves together many different ideas of loss; loss of a loved one, loss of autonomy, memory, and identity. Experimentation and material exploration are as equally important and intertwined with concept as she is ...
