The images in these paintings have been taken from architecture of the inner city–alleys, hidden courtyards, small factories– and framed in window frames found in those areas. What is left when the workers are gone are their artifacts. The paintings are therefore artifacts of artifacts. That is the nature of realist painting. Hillary wood used the ancient medium of egg tempera–a mixture of pigment and egg yolk. Practiced in the Middle Ages, it fell out of favour with the rise of oil painting but saw a breif rebirth in the 1930's and 40's. UBRAN ICONS is her first protracted exploration of that medium.

"Each person and every object has its angel, which is simply its spirit or essence" With this in mind, grunt has received a vast cross-section of interpretations of angels and their meanings. As angels are messengers between the sprititual and earthly realms so are artists the mediators between the ideal and the real. The nature of the submissions will be as varied and mysterious as the nature of angels themselves.
