ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Jana Harper is an interdisciplinary artist whose work explores the themes and tensions between materiality and transcendence, chance encounters and human willfulness, relationships and connectivity, and the natural world and human acts of meaning making. Materially, her work takes many forms: drawing, printmaking, artist’s books, sculpture, photography, installation, social practice, and video. Originally trained as a printmaker, Jana has a broad definition of what constitutes her practice. She divides her time between teaching, research, and creative activity: working both individually and in collaborative settings.

Rachel Debuque is currently an Assistant Professor and Foundations Coordinator in the Art department at George Mason University. She has exhibited extensively including, New York, Croatia, and Philadelphia. She was recently awarded to attend the internationally recognized Bemis Center for Contemporary Art’s residency program. Her research spans installation, sculpture, video, and performance. Debuque de-familiarizes space and objects using common decorating design strategies such as pattern, paint, and the arrangement of objects. Her work purposefully plays with two and three-dimensional realms, creating a push/pull in perceptions. Vibrant colors to create directional line patterns that suggest dimensional space and flatten objects with matte paints.
