Artist

Crystal Yayra Anthony

Crystal Yayra Anthony’s work explores alternate ways of being by conceptualizing the human body in its most natural and vulnerable state: nude. Her subjects are presented in ways that challenge preconceived notions of decorum or performative and acceptable expression. Anthony’s practice investigates her perception of what African society used to be and experiments with what it could be.

Crystal Yayra Anthony has exhibited work at Kunsthalle Krems Museum, Vienna; Dot Ateliers, Ghana; and PM/AM, London, among others.

Helen Frankenthaler Foundation Residency

Studio #304

Artist

Cullen Washington Jr.

Cullen Washington Jr.’s abstract paintings convey the feeling of the divine in nature through matter and light, which he calls TerraChroma. Washington doesn’t depict atmosphere and land but rather the primary properties that make them exist, thus, the paintings’ titles “Primers” refer the underlying beginning. He constructs the painting surface with raw pigments, earth minerals, and acrylic, and he represents color as the quality of light with an atomized mixture of pigment and water.

Cullen Washington Jr. has exhibited work at The University of Michigan Museum of Art, Michigan; Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston; and Saatchi Gallery, London, among others.
