ABOUT THE SHOW"Just as any love story does, the stories of violent relationships each develop differently. Though a relationship full of love should not be violent there is indeed love. There is a very human hope and belief in love. There are lines of power, control and anger that should not be crossed but they are crossed. Violence should not be hard to see, hard to distinguish, hard to name and yet it is.When we see violence from an outsider’s perspective and we want to understand it we place ourselves, or those we know, in the moment and we ask “What if it was me?” Why do we have to ask this question? When we don’t want to understand violence we push the stories away from us, and we say “that could never happen to me”. In this moment we are failing to understand that, like love, violence is all around us. This work visualizes relationships I witness as a Domestic Violence advocate; their development through the cycle of violence, the perspectives surrounding the relationships, and the questions of what happens when love is pressured by violence and control.”ABOUT THE ARTISTJessica Caldas was born in Jacksonville, Florida but truly considers Atlanta, Georgia her home and spent most of her childhood drawing and spinning stories with her twin sister. She found a new home in Athens, Georgia while studying Printmaking and Japanese Language & Literature at the University of Georgia where she spent the next 5 years excepting her year abroad in Tokyo.Jessica returned to Atlanta in 2011 to rediscover the city as an adult. Currently, she is working at the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyer’s Foundation. She prints at the Atlanta Printmaker’s Studio where she finished a residency in Spring 2011 and is lucky enough to be a current emerging artist resident through MINT’s Leap Year Residency.

Artist Nathan Sharratt moved to Atlanta from New York a few years ago, a move which unexpectedly sent him towards fine art. In the past few year’s he’s gained a degree, become a Dashboard Co-op artist, and been in several group shows. Listen to the podcast to hear his thoughts on Atlanta’s art…

Babel, Nikita Gale

“Babel addresses the parallel between the biblical story of the Tower of Babel and the modern use of technology as a means of facilitating communication and abetting the human quest for knowledge. Each piece corresponds to each of the nine verses of the story of Babel in the King James version of the Christian Bible found in Genesis 11:1-9”

Work from Compendium, 2011 - present

This body of work is an ongoing meditation on three distinct states of desire: desiring, obtaining and losing; desiring and obtaining, and then simply desiring. The materials and gestures created through the use of paint and text are pushed to further emphasize the words and thoughts expressed in the works.

It’s about love… or something.

Yes!

Fucking My Way To The Top (Sex Tapes In The South)

A gallery owner, an art critic, and a museum curator walk into a bar. A southern artist’s guide to career advancement.

Wish I were as brilliant as some of the artists I inhabit this city with.
