PRESS RELEASE: Matthew Cusick in "What Lies Beneath" at OJAC

February 18, 2017 - Patrick Kelly, Old Jail Art Center

What Lies Beneath presents the work of nine contemporary artists who utilize the mediums of collage, montage (photographs or film), and assemblage (found objects). Mass-produced print imagery and utilitarian objects--fueled by voracious consumerism--have created an endless supply of source materials for these artists in their productions of collages, montages, and assemblages. Though diverse in appearance, all of the works in this exhibition share a commonality of providing layered meanings, consciously or sub-consciously, embedded by the artists. The full potential of each work is revealed by the viewers' efforts to discover "what lies beneath" ...

ARTICLE: John Adelman in the Houston Chronicle

January 31, 2017 - Molly Glentzer

...While John Adelman has recently begun adding three-dimensional elements to his obsessive pen and ink drawings, this piece surprised me because it's entirely 3D, composed of a plaster cast bust, a metal coin slide (that perfectly suggests a flapping tongue!) and a marble base; yet it's still in keeping with what Adelman calls his "dismantling" concept...

ARTICLE: Kim Squaglia in Sacramento Magazine

January 24, 2017 - Mari Tzikas Suarez

Kim Squaglia’s wondrous works are ones to pore over—that’s because their layers and layers of clear glossy resin and colorful paint give them an almost holographic appeal. Though her thriving real estate business keeps her busy with showings of another kind, the Sacramento native can frequently be found in her home studio, creating paintings for collectors, corporations and clients alike...

ARTICLE: Jackie Tileston in Parallax Collaboration

January 19, 2017 - ParallaxCollab.com

Painter Jackie Tileston explores both the self and creativity as never-ending processes of transformation. Her abstract work portrays the malleable nature of identity, illustrating how human perception is constantly twisted and redefined with each new idea, interaction, and experience that it encounters. Every element upon the canvas is in motion. Things come into being, they declare themselves, deceive, seduce, enlighten, and then dissolve. Atmospheric and figural worlds collide as soft, nebulae of color drift, fall, and collapse into phantom geometries, before disappearing into luminous, iridescent dusts...

ARTICLE: Terry Allen in austin360

January 15, 2017 - John T. Davis - Special to the American-Statesman

Lubbock ain’t never gonna be cool. Not going to happen. The conservative, inelegant, sand-scrubbed little city marooned in the flat and formidable vastness of the Great South Plains won’t ever be overrun with hipster cachet a la Marfa. The art mob will not flock. The cognoscenti will not congregate.

That being said, the ongoing paradox of the place is how much art, specifically music, can arise from such humble and inauspicious origins. From Bob Wills and Buddy Holly back in the day to the Dixie Chicks’ Natalie Maines and singer-songwriter-fiddler Amanda Shires today, the Texas Panhandle has been an unlikely wellspring of ferocious creativity...
