Chen-Shun Lin’s unsettling sculptures carry their own, ongoing narratives. Whether it’s the physics of a piece or the content itself, the off-kilter nature of the works suggest a purposeful tension with each work. And often, the artist’s figurative pieces, though at times troubling, carry an unexpected grace.
Paolo Grassino’s strange sculptural creatures teeter between organic and manmade forms.

The strange worlds of David Ball are forged with acrylic paint, colored pencil, and collaged materials.
