The shapes or objects in Spectronic Esperanto have designs on one another. They represent some of the people, forces, and lives that resonate in the unconscious mind of Loren Spector. They exert influence on each other, they preen, they tango, they sue for forgiveness, they saunter vigorously out for dinner, they shiver in familial tableaux, they gambol about friskily, they give a speech while the others listen, they ensure or entwine each other in ideas, in love, in psychodrama or in fun.

Briar Craig has long been fascinated with the flood of visual flotsam that we encounter everyday. Just walking down a city street can put us into sensory overload even if our eyes are focused, as Craig’s often are, on the ground. AS a printmaker, he has collected the detritus of our consumer culture- torn wrappings, rusty signs, and tattered posters- and used them to construct new visual dialogues. In recent years, his interest in peripheral input has been tuned increasingly to the new media technology of the information age. Yet his video installation, Replay, explores not so much the overwhelming flow of data but something we never fully see firsthand- ourselves.

“It’s all about boiling down my art, my life, down to the essentials and producing paintings where there’s no tricks and only what’s intrinsically real. That’s why the show is called Eden.” Nachtigall uses mostly found materials to paint his High energy works on, Scraps of wood or the cardboard found in the back alley near his studio that he had chose for his current work showing at Latitude 53, in the show Eden.

For Laura Kozak, the idea of the first home- with its associations makes for a rich subject matter for an art show, a concept that both artists and audience can easily grasp and share. To that end she has invited eight local emerging artists in their early twenties to create art which will evoke their original abode for an exhibit called Launch Pad which will be displayed at Latitude 53.

Trying to encourage people to pause in their busy day and think about the idea of urbanity and what the concept of “city” means.
