Shifting Terrains: works by Carlie Trosclair


Drew Henry salon&gallery presents, Shifting Terrains, June 8, 2013 from 7-11pm. 

Shifting Terrains focuses on the transitory and ephemeral characteristics of natural, constructed, and architectural landscapes. In a constant state of change, each pattern and form become a suspended moment of wonder and evolution. Shifting Terrains excavates new compositions within familiar and unfamiliar terrains by exploring our ever changing perspectives and understanding of realities.

Marcis Curtis
“I draw the epiphanies my mind creates in an effort to bring them more clarity and resonance. The spaces I create are thought-experiments of cultural norms and currents, interacting with the omnipresent force of nature. I enjoy the absurd, the irrational, and the intuitive, while trying to maintain a grounded, skeptical perspective.”

Evan Michael

Evan Michael Honerkamp is native to Saint Louis, Missouri. He spent his adolescence surrounded by mentally, physically, and socially handicapped individuals, with whom interactions have led to key insights into innumerable worlds of obsession, idiosyncratic communication, and vivid sensation. Continuing these relationships has melded his artwork into the fantastical and stylized forms of current. He is currently completing his Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art from Webster University. Earning additional certification in art therapy, he has begun extending his creative practice to benefit the autistic community before broadening to include the incarcerated population and victims of trauma and addiction.

Tom Cline

Tom Cline is an undergraduate at Webster University. He is a BFA candidate in his senior year, with an emphasis in printmaking. Tom’s prints explore the idea of human burdens, represented by depictions of heavily-layered, amorphous forms. Drawn from his own experiences, these forms become stand-ins for the feeling of being borne down under the weight of responsibility. Though massive, these weights are supported tenaciously by representations of the frail, yet unfailing, body. The prints resonate with the shared experience of all humanity’s burdens, and the continuous struggle against them.
