In the work of Cindy Wright plays the tradition of the vanitas still-life an important role. Wright photographs her own created and stylized subjects with a digital camera. Wright uses these images while painting. The skilled work shows us a reality painted from a photograph.

Dana Levy explores in her work the relationship between the natural and the unnatural. For her video The Wake she filmed in the Carnegie Natural History Museum in Pittsburg. Between the drawers of stuffed butterflies, accurately preserved in authentic wooden cabinets, the viewer sees one-hundred living butterflies. Their interaction creates a special tension in this video. Also on show will be her video Fountain.
