Artist

Ustina Yakovleva

Ustina Yakovleva creates paintings, graphic works, and objects. A large part of her practice is informed by graphic works consisting of identical individual strokes that create abstract compositions; an automatic writing of sorts that binds time into material form. In her works in other media, she follows similar principles: embroideries evolve into organic structures, fabric sculptures grow to resemble continents or icebergs, or possibly electronic circuits rooted in empty air.

Ustina Yakovleva has exhibited work at the 5th Ural Industrial Biennial of Contemporary Art, Ekaterinburg; Winzavod Center for Contemporary Art; Museum of the Artistic Exploration of the Arctic, Arkhangelsk, all Russia among others.

Artist

Charisse Weston

Charisse Weston’s creative work emerges from deep material investigations of poetics and the autobiographical. She utilizes glass to conceptually embody both the everyday risk of anti-black violence and the precocity and malleability of blackness in the face of this violence. She deploys language and the autobiographical to examine the delicate intimacies and reticent poetics underlying black life. She reuses and re-articulates materials from past installations to formulate the next to represent meaning’s capacity to shatter.

Charisse Weston has exhibited work at the Contemporary Art Museum, Houston; Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts, New York; and Praz-Delavallade Gallery, Los Angeles, among others.
