Return to Utopia

Return to Utopia addresses the perpetual longing for Eden. It seeks to describe the search for effortless connection that brings us back to a pre-Babel state of universal understanding. Writ large as a societal ideal, this then assumes the shape of Utopia.

A map of the world that does not include Utopia is not worth even glancing at.

Dazzle and a Depth of Concept

It explodes across your brainpan like a costume jeweler’s fever dream. The images JT Burke assembles with such exquisite attention to detail stir memories you didn’t even know you had. Each piece is a journey, employing iconography drawn from sources as varied as the Middle Ages to Middle America. A true utopian, JT Burke gives us visions of fabled continents, ones that move us with tectonic power.

Get. Well. Soon. 

In his most recent body of work, Luke Reichle gives us flowers with the power to transform. The are a balm to the soul made weary by wearying times. Through the explosion and isolation of a single blossom he propels flower portraiture beyond the realm of image and into that of mage. With Weenie Roast (Sunset of the Bourgeoisie)- our cover image - his garden exudes a benign menace, shielding the clean-cut nudists from prying eyes, all the while concealing from them the engine of their doom.

Street Goddess with a Heart 

For Amber Goldhammer, the message is the medium. If it is through repetition that we learn, then Amber is schooling us with her vibrant compositions, bringing home the point that “Love is All There Is.” These works tap into a drive we all feel, one that propels us toward the salve of intimacy. She uses the energy of the street to move our eyes around her work, making co-conspirators of us in a looping landscape where color reigns supreme and all you even need, is love.

The Land of Krovblit

A glorious assault of color and form, calamitous content and comic relief, the work of David Krovblit gives us a view of the modern world through his unique lens. Filtered throughout we have pulp goddesses, tough guys, morality tales, cautionary notes, science fantasy, an insinuating garden of [what one suspects are] carnivorous flora and social commentary. It is an ever-changing series of map points on route to the zenith of the zeitgeist.
