Se Jong Cho

Se Jong Cho is an environmental engineer and self-taught painter who embraces science’s counterpoint: art and creativity. Cho’s work reminds us that all living things—plants, animals, and humans alike—are dependent on each other and on the power of the star we call the sun. The artist’s science background comes to the fore along with a sense of wonder about the miraculousness of all the systems that make up the planet’s flora and fauna, as well as our existence on this blue orb.

Emily Uchytil

Emily Uchytil is a Baltimore-based oil painter with a love for ecology, entomology, and patterns. Emily started out painting room scenes with overlapping patterns, bold colors, human figures, and moody lighting. Her body of work now focuses in on the small spaces within those rooms — revealing what is hiding out on the ornate walls. In 2011, Emily came across hundreds of rolls of vintage wallpaper in a dusty dance hall in Thomas, West Virginia. The pattern-rich wallpaper quickly became her new canvas. The prints she offers are of her original oil paintings on wallpaper and are part of her ever-growing series of ecologically-themed work in the style of trompe-l'œil. Through the juxtaposition created when pairing realistic, nature-based imagery on human-made, decorative surfaces, she hopes to bring our relationship with these curious species into a more prominent position in our collective psyche. Her goal is to inspire the viewer to explore the symbolic relationships we hold on the natural world and appreciate the diversity of life around us.

Alfonso Fernandez

Alfonso Fernandez is a painter born in Mexico City, currently living and working in Baltimore, Maryland. Fernandez’s paintings are social, psychological, and personal investigations in which he brings to light the idea that borders can be blurred and overlapped in order to reconsider the associative societal labels assigned to us. Since moving to Baltimore, Fernandez says his paintings have evolved in response to navigating a new and unfamiliar city, taking on abstraction in the wake of unrest, representations of societal memory, and figuration through the loss of identity. Each of these artistic investigations are grounded in his experience of moving from Mexico to the United States and an effort to balance different cultures and languages, while handling the contested spaces of ethnicity and assimilation.
