Beginning in the early 1990s, Cheryl Donegan combined video, painting, and performance to confront issues of sex, gender, and the creative process. The artist’s body was prominently featured as both agent and image in iconic videos of that period. In her current work, these themes continue, yet a contemporary moment is defined: identity, previously described as ‘body’, is now interpreted as clothing, fashion, and technology. ‘Self’ is defined by ‘surface’.

Portraiture is the framework for the experimental films of Bill Santen. His practice is divided between filmmaking and songwriting. Often, recorded oral histories, and the documentation of time and place, force a sense of nostalgia—genuine, or constructed—on to the viewer. Bill Santen earned his MFA from Columbia University in 2011 and his BA from the University of Kentucky, College of Fine Arts, 2009.
