“Douglas Hoekzema, aka Hoxxoh attempts to show us a different way of viewing time through a means of exploring its natural fabric. His work creates a new foundation and approach to evaluating and appreciating time. The oscillation of the pendulum paints time through gravity’s natural pull. Expressing how we can be pulled in one direction, when we are really meant to be going in another. How resistance creates a struggle and a false sense of control. Where if we follow the natural flow of times predetermined, yet unseen path, an experience of beauty and pure form will take shape.”

“Johnny Robles builds a kind of surrealist playground; a landscape where familiar forms of stimulation (both for learning and recreation) are warped into objects rendered obsolete, dysfunctional, and deflated. Gentle Collapse is a melancholic, exaggerated version of a rubber swing, seemingly as it would appear on a normal playground, only this frame is affixed to the ceiling versus the ground. Rather than safely cradling its rider offering the sweet exhilaration of nearly weightless flight, the rubber saddle lies overstretched, limp, and distorted. Sleep Sweeper is fashioned from an unaltered playground slide, made from galvanized metal and stainless steel; its construction, however, perched atop a series of casted concrete pillows, mutes its capability as a kind of perpetual escape.”
