    images recall paintings which celebrated men who rejected family life in favor of intellectual pursuits and elevated their cultivated eccentricities to the status of art In discussing the size of the final works Badach explains I use the large format camera because it shares a visual affinity to painting This approach requires that the artist be carefully attuned to the sitter and the space that they are composing The sitters who chose to reveal their life to the camera also accept the vulnerability inevitably felt when opening up ones private world to a stranger The portraits enable the men to openly be themselves to use the space of the image to publicly express their identity and interests The images become declaration of their escape from a life of social conventions and an opportunity to explore the emotional longing to pursue a self determined life Badach received a MFA in photography from Cranbrook Academy of Art Bloomfield Hills MI Solo exhibitions include The Guides The Print Center Philadelphia PA 2006 Vivarium Repeat Resemble and Represent Leonard Pearlstein Gallery Philadelphia PA 2005 and a solo exhibition at the Philadelphia International Airport Philadelphia PA 2004 Her work has been featured at Pentimenti Gallery

    printmaking and painting Brenton Good creates architectonic two dimensional works that recall several modern periods in the history of art Geometric systems recall the compositional concerns of Minimalist painting while more accidental marks that include scratches and drips evoke the immediacy of Abstract Expresssionism The transparency of each layer of final work reflects the contemplative responses of the artist As Good states the finished piece is a documentation of all the steps in the creative process both organic and controlled Each layer of color becomes a record of a decision made concerning composition weight or rhythm As a viewer works through passages within the piece the subtle meditative and devotional nature of each choice made by the artist becomes more apparent The quiet beauty of a water stain becomes magnified when coupled with a straight line of a flat area of color Good received an M F A and M A from the University of Dallas Irving TX and has had recent solo exhibitions at the Ft Worth Community Arts Center Ft Worth TX 2005 33up Dallas TX 2004 and the Zephyr Art Gallery Pasadena CA 2004 Other group exhibitions have been held at Cornell University Ithaca NY 2005 Zephyr

    Hotel 210 W Rittenhouse Square Third Floor The paintings of Jung Wha Ahn have a sincere formalistic quality often overlooked in contemporary painting Composition color relationships and form are carefully balanced to create a natural rhythmic blend that seems to hover on the surface on the canvas Yet this formal concern for the qualities of painting itself actually reflects a deeper more poetic relationship between the artist and her surroundings Ahn draws her inspiration from small objects found in nature and in the studio that surrounds her work Ahn states I try to listen to Nature s communication a tree communicating to its fellow tree next to it a city building to one next to it I keep searching to find my personal internalized alphabets At the Philadelphia Art Alliance Satellite Gallery Ahn will be exhibiting several large scale oil on canvas works as well as several smaller oil on board paintings Ahn received her BFA at the University of Minnesota and her MFA at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts Recent exhibitions include Chicago 2000 Chicago IL 2000 Six Degrees in Cold Storage College Art Association Annual Conference Philadelphia 2002 From the Studio Selections from the Philadelphia Open Studio
