Nisha Bansil

Nisha Bansil

Nisha Bansil’s work is an exploration of pattern, form, and structure. Living in the woods, she is inspired by observations made in her environment, such as light and shadow in the trees and plants, decay and growth in the life cycles on the forest floor, and the progress of time in the geology of the area.

Rui Sasaki

Rui Sasaki is a Japanese conceptual artist whose work centers around the exploration and discovery of subtle intimacy in unfamiliar and familiar spaces, which she refers to as “empty space.” After moving to the U.S. in 2007, she experienced sensations of lost memories, nostalgia, and homesickness.
