Navigating the vastness of space—both inward and outward—artists Brice Bischoff, Joe Brittain, and Katy Fischer each generate boundless forms that provide definition within a continually expanding and contracting void. Through their approaches to photography, sculpture and painting, the artists featured in NONILLION engage the energetic potential of light, material, and line. Brice Bischoff’s photographs give presence to unseen and intangible events through performance and process. By harnessing the interaction of materials with light, Bischoff stages photographic situations that oscillate and ooze beyond the edges of the image. Joe Brittain’s new sculptures contain forces, undetectable to the eye, that change the physical makeup and arrangement of the materials. Preferring metonymy over metaphor, the resulting works present themselves as uncanny forms that double as functional diagrams or maps made to orient one’s place in the world. Katy Fischer’s recent works on paper evoke the spaciousness and dynamism of wide-open landscapes and moments of meditative clarity. Referencing classical Indian painting, American folk art, and ancient Middle Eastern artifacts, Fischer’s paintings and drawings generate a palpable energy—a charge between object and line that reverberates from their intricate detail.
