Jillian Piccirilli's series-driven art is informed by her interests in narrative and collaboration.
As a rather shy only child, she was schooled by her bohemian mother in the wonders of imaginative play with sophisticated dolls, civilized animals, and elaborate storylines. In her art, she use a variety of mediums and elements of performance to construct unusual tales populated by colorful characters. Piccirilli's co-creators / subjects / models serve as her co-conspirators.
The result is a body of work woven together by gently eccentric narrative threads that draw upon personal history and familial fiction to varying degrees.

Much of the conceptual and aesthetic impetus for Leah Hardy's artwork has been derived from interest in ritual objects, shrines and talismans—the intersection of the sacred and the secular. Personal iconography often includes parts of the body and flora presented in a contemplative manner. Hardy's newest work has been focused on insect-inspired forms, which become metaphors for the present human condition and also serve as an ethical inquiry into the scientific ability to genetically modify our food, alter our bodies and prolong life. Fragmented, altered with mechanical elements or re-contextualized, these life forms are formally preserved to reference our fascination with mortality and desire. The intended effect is for the pieces to be specimens—beautiful, yet at times, disturbing.
