"I am a pathologist at St. Mary's Hospital. I have been painting for over 30 years. My primary interest is landscape painting, in realistic or impressionistic style. I love to travel with my family and my medical school classmates and paint the sceneries from my trips. I put together 40 paintings for the show, including my recent trips to Taiwan, Japan, Spain, national parks, the scenes from Madison, and flowers and birds." - C.K. Chang

"My Maslow 2013 was a journey, and exploration in the depths of motivation for me and; what I learned is that motivation factors, influences, and triggers are so unique for all things that I find it difficult to put into words what works and doesn't work for me specifically. It's like trying to compare apples to numbers, or numbers to scents. It's a total disconnection from what we know and what we think we know that inspires us to the things we do.


"Abraham Maslow, (UW-Madison PhD in the field of psychology) describes in his "Theory of Motivation" paper, different ways to get the best result of our choices based on key motivators. I help describe the sentiment in photographs. My images are labeled with key motivators (How I felt when I experienced these things.) The best decisions should bring us closer to self-actualization, the best result may be achieved by surrendering to complete satisfaction of one's primary needs. (Biological, Safety, Belonging, Esteem, Cognitive, Aesthetic)." - Shia Fisher.

Suzanne Miller and Nikki Cooper are two recycling artists that comprise Green Chicks Studio in Monroe, Wis. Original works of art are created by using recycled objects like plastic, newspaper, wood and wire. Recycled armatures are held together with lots of tape and then covered with layers of fabric mache made from recycled sheets and quilting scraps. Sculptures are detailed using homemade newspaper clay. An acrylic mixture seals the clay and gives the sculptures fine detail before the acrylic paint and varnish finish the artworks. Overall, the art is about 90 percent recycled.






Photography by Nolan Ferlic


Untitled, by Nolan FerlicWhere: University Hospital, 1st Floor, J5/1 Cafeteria Corridor
600 Highland Ave.

Madison, WI 53792

When: July 31-Aug. 30.

Image: Untitled, by Nolan Ferlic


"These photographs are taken in various countries, all of which are places of immense, undefinable story and richness. I look to capture fugitive moments, that without a deliberate press of the shutter, would disappear. My images are decisively honest and forward. I have found something tremendously compelling in the way light falls, creating shadow and spreading highlight. These monochromatic slivers of time make the focus of my images exclusively on texture, form and scene. More work can be seen on my Instagram @nol.fe." - Nolan Ferlic

A decade ago, while living in Nuku'alofa, Tonga, she met and worked with a local artist who used recycled tapa cloth to make 3D artwork. Using some of the same techniques, Siraj has used teabags in a variety of ways to form her 3D artwork.
