This group exhibition explores 5 artists’ perceptions of the human mystique conveyed through very different mediums and stylistic approaches.

Tim Main’s conceptual focus is an exploration of memory, specifically the process of loss, resurrection, manipulation and preservation of memories, and the way human development and behavior is subsequently affected. There is a strong concentration in the graphite drawings on the ambiguity of a present time and the how constructs of the past, overlapped by predictions of the future, create an illusion of the now.

Sally Stockhold, well known for her sometimes ironic and often comical series, “Iconic Women and Sometimes Men in History”, is considered among the most daring and original photographers at work in Denver. She features herself in a variety of irreverent, historical guises, painting the backdrop as her stage.


Zelda Zinn’s latest experimental photography series, NY Revelations, is an exploration into the intersection of space and time in the urban environment. In the fall of 2014, she moved from LA to New York and began taking photos of strangers on subway platforms and street corners. She slowly paints over her photos in digital white to create a picture within a picture. The finished photographs offer the viewer insight into her process of untangling the clutter and chaos in her new adopted city.

Peter Illig’s oil paintings involve photo-based images from various sources to explore feminism, and address power relationships between men and women. The paintings also ask questions about how art works can illustrate philosophical ideas with metaphors.

Gail Folwell’s sculpture is the gesture sketch of a moment. Expressed abstractly through human form, it is the moment, a poignant, powerful or amusing experience in time that she wishes to capture, enhance, and convey. She wants to feel the inspirations, again and again. To relive the visceral connection we have to victory, laughter, glory, lust, pain, celebration.

Michael McConnell’s photographs are the culmination of his progression from a “pretty landscape” photographer to a maker of images with soul. Michael’s work features recent form, figure and fashion images striking in composition and the starkness of high-contrast black and white. “I want my black and white imagery to convey a sense of mystery and emotion that, for me at least, is missing in much of my early work,” Michael says.
