Ookloop Studio is a collaborative formed by Felicia Francine and Benjamin David. Their creative processes are comprised of analog and digital fabrication. Felicia Francine’s past works have embraced the transformation of materials and methods of making through the exploration of material properties and process driven investigations. Benjamin David’s works of art fuse video, electronics and music. For Visualizing Sound 2.0, they have created collaborative and individual abstract works using advanced design technologies paired with imagery which is influenced by the Pop & Op Art movements.
Their art investigates how sound is comprehended and manipulated. Their fabrication techniques afford the works a flexibility and diversity in their visual portrayal of sound. For most of us, we are surrounded by sound through our auditory senses. However, this is only one avenue in which sound is traditionally experienced. For them, understanding the subject goes beyond this one line of communication. Thus, they have investigated how to attain a deeper knowledge of sound by visualizing and documenting what cannot be seen.

With a playful eye and exacting technique, Scott Curtis takes an imaginative approach to portraits, landscapes, interiors and abstracts. Each piece is approached with a rigorous set of self-imposed obstructions or constraints which he then attempts to work and play within, creating the most resonant effects possible for that work. Working primarily with oil on wood panels, the artist’s process sees him using thick applications of paint and vivid uses of colour, particularly when creating his bold abstract pieces.
His distinctive portrait and landscape style incorporates exciting and inventive visual effects where figures and buildings are softly fragmented and mirrored, swirling and merging with their surroundings as if dissolving. Originally from Michigan, Curtis is now based in Durham, North Carolina. Over his long career he has garnered recognition at the highest levels of fine art and design, with works in major collections as well as having exhibited in a wide range of galleries across the United States.
