ERIK DURANT  88 Hatch Street, Studio 303 New Bedford, MA 02745   Erik Durant  is a figurative sculptor residing in New Bedford, Massachusetts. Born in New Haven, Connecticut, he studied History and Sculpture at Southern Connecticut State University. In 2001 he moved to New Bedford to attend the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, receiving an MFA in Sculpture in 2004.  Durant’s personal work is a quest to understand the human condition. As a sculptor his main interests lie in gesture, movement, and pose. His works are at times Illustrative, but always realist, exploring historical, and contemporary narratives—both known, and unknown. While many of the characters that he chooses to sculpt seem to be rooted in the past, they are his own imaginings of things not fully understood. Issues surrounding beauty, the body, and identity, give rise to a version of contemporary mythology that is new, yet seemingly familiar.  Learn more at:    www.erikdurant.com

SEVERIN HAINES  88 Hatch Street, Studio 308  New Bedford, MA 02745 Email:  shaines@umassd.edu  or Call: 508-817-7080   Severin “Sig” Haines  paints captivating landscapes of New England and his native Norway. While he works representationally, he also draws technique from abstraction. Haines’ work studies color and gesture in the context of representation and form. Haines looks closely at the work of the early – mid 20th century painters, including Vuillard, Seurat, and Matisse, who employ the techniques of “pure painting” to representational work. He also draws inspiration from the abstract expressionist action painters Jackson Pollock. Like Pollock, Haines pays careful attention to the richness and depth achievable through color manipulation. Haines also relies on the action and gesture of his brushwork to imbue his compositions with energy and emotion.   Learn more at:    www.severinhaines.com

MARK ST. PIERRE  88 Hatch Street, Studio 410 New Bedford, MA 02745   Marc St. Pierre  holds an MFA in Printmaking. His latest work, Color Encaustic Paintings, reference the language of maps and aerial views. The collage groundwork is an attempt to suggest islands or the meeting point of landmasses and water. Layers of tracings from actual maps of coastal areas and topographic patterns are introduced. These drawings become a physical overlay suspended in translucent wax. Within this shallow space, the paintings establish a dialog between the unsystematic and the constructed. The result moves the eye gradually over this precarious equilibrium constantly in flux.
