Orange County-based artist Lesley Nishigawara’s work explores grids, patterns, structures and networks that she observes in the built environment, from emerging buildings on the side of the freeway to retaining walls in the mountains of Japan. Through a series of image manipulations and algorithms created by the artist, these visuals are translated in her intricately constructed paper and textile works, weavings, drawings, paintings, photographs and sculpture.

Combining original photographs and artwork, journals, woodworking elements, vintage album covers and other mixed media, the complex and allegorical collage works by Orange County-based artist Eric Stoner have been in the making for more than a decade. Their autobiographical nature highlights the interconnectedness of events, people and places that have shaped the artist’s life, while remaining open to multiple interpretations by the viewer. The work’s surreal and highly detailed narratives follow in the tradition of Northern European masters like Hieronymus Bosch and Pieter Bruegel.
