Neil practices a variety of art forms, including carpentry, furniture design, illustration, printmaking, and the fermentation of food and drink.

Rob Brown

Rob Brown is a visual and sound artist who lives in Santa Ana, California. He was born in 1981 in Joplin, Missouri and grew up in Reno, Nevada. His practice includes drawing, printmaking, painting and sound installation. His current work deals with ideas of systems, structure, logic and perception. He employs processed and synthesized sound/video alongside prints and drawings. These works are often realized through a set of self-defined parameters which come from personal research and interests.

Cathy Hsiao

Cathy Hsiao came from a background in craft, specifically weaving animal fibers dyed with plants, raised by a devout Buddhist mom. “Plant and Animal Studio” keeps this name as a token to these histories. Her current practice embeds an intimate politics of rhythm and ritual to translate cultural languages and create new ones. To that end she creates multi-narrative works in sculpture, sound, weaving, photography and video that switch codes depending on context. Many of her processes are grounded in craft practices from Asian textiles such as weaving and natural dyeing.

Conchi Sanford

Daughter of an immigrant mother, Conchi Sanford’s work reflects her own cultural diversity and calls into question social constructs that pertain to identity. Her interest is not so much in the experience, but in the psychological impact that the experience has on the individual and how that manifests itself in the individual’s psyche. While Conchi’s concentration is on sculpture, she creates pieces in a variety of mediums, which allows for much freedom. Conchi holds a Master in Fine Arts from Claremont Graduate University conferred in December of 2011.
