Alan Prazniak’s oil landscapes have evolved into abstracted color fields that recall their subjects but suggest a more expansive perspective. While Prazniak’s compositions have developed into something beyond the landscape, they still manage to stay grounded in place.

Alongside Prazniak’s oil paintings are Sun You’s oven-baked polymer clay forms mounted on painted wood panels, alongside arrangements of sculpted clay forms in cardboard boxes. You’s polymer clay pieces are baked in her oven at home, and then transported to the studio in cardboard boxes. With this laborious practice, involving pinching, kneading, and pressing the clay like pieces of dough, You brings to mind domestic labor at home. The abstraction of her work doesn’t deflect the uncanny feeling of childhood objects that mingle with the expert skill of the work.

Alan Prazniak was born in 1985 and was raised on a horse farm in rural Pennsylvania.
