Elaborate compositions create imagined atmospheres using various forms. More abstract than realistic, the open-ended nature of these forms allows the viewer to engage in the positive and negative, the micro and macro, as the eye discovers new passages throughout the complex labyrinths. Allison Olsen's improvisational quality of painting stems from her response to organic forms found in natural environments.The work of Jessie Burnes finds inspiration and discovery through her personal connection with nature and botanical subjects. She uses these specific organic forms as a vehicle to pursue and explore the complexity of human experience and spirit as well as the role we play in the physical world.
