Photography // Tuesday, June 30, 2015
Geir Mosied (b. 1978) is a Norwegian photographer whose work is derived from recounts of domestic, everyday life. His series “Plucked” examines various themes ranging from alienation, segregation, and the relationship between humans and constructed spaces. According to the artist, “The home is often known to be a safe space where one can be private and intimate.

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 30, 2015
Jason Briggs lives in rural Tennessee where he teaches part time in Nashville and spends the rest of the time in his studio creating these bizarre porcelain sculptures. Through his work, Jason is searching for a fresh perspective and trying to create objects that he's never quite seen before and "whose inherent mystery and intrigue quietly insists upon viewer interaction." In his words, "Obvious sexual references, along with an extravagant, fetish-like attention to surface, can arouse a yearning to touch as powerful as the act itself."
