Buster Graybill: Leisure Lines3.1. Buster Graybill: Leisure Lines
Southwest School of Art (San Antonio)

“San Antonio artist Buster Graybill utilizes sculpture, installation, video and photography to traverse and reconnect with often overlooked places found in the rural landscape. Harvesting memories, stories, language, and objects from the rich cultural geography of rural America, Graybill’s work is informed by the subtle shifts and rapid changes that are occurring in the landscape as urban sprawl continues to consume and displace both nature and culture.”


Chris Engman: Prospect and Refuge

3.2. Chris Engman: Prospect and Refuge
Southwest School of Art (San Antonio)

“In his photographic works, Chris Engman examines the most fundamental of issues related to the human condition: the inexplicable fact of our existence, the ungraspable experience of time, and the illusive and unknowable nature of reality. In so doing, he calls attention to the gulf that exists between how we see and how we think we see; how we think and how we think we think; and the inconstant and constructed nature of memory.”
