Artist Statement

Steven Look and Emily Evans, together known as Iggy Smalls, are the creators of a set of filthy trading cards known as Cumdumpsters. Look is well known for being the frontman in King Eye and the Squirts, and for his monthly flyers for Club Garibaldi. Evans is known for her quirky jewelry, magnets, coasters and other crafts, usually themed upon horror movies or rock and roll bands.

Atticus Rabatin, born and raised in the Midwest, graduated from the University of Milwaukee-Wisconsin with a Bachelor of Fine Arts with an emphasis in Sculpture in 2017. Prior to returning to school in 2013, Rabatin spent his twenties focused on cooking in, and managing restaurants. It is these years of tactile exploration via cuisine that allowed him to find his way within the sculpture world.

His sculptural work explores the relationship between our memories and their tendency to be reshaped by present and future experiences and how each memory is altered by that relationship. Rabatin utilizes various techniques, ranging from more traditional fabrication skills, like welding and woodworking, to digital design and fabrication, and audio/video editing and production, in an effort to highlight how surfaces interact with one another and serve as symbols for memory creation and retrieval.

Rabatin has shown work in UWM’s Crossing Over group show in the Union Gallery and the Best of Sculpture portion of UWM’s Kenilworth Open Studios. His work has also been featured in Var Gallery’s 2018 Emerging Artist Exhibition and Warped Milwaukee’s Rhythm Show at Jazz Gallery in Riverwest. Rabatin wishes to further his exploration of memory and our relationships to it, and one another. In 2019, he intends to continue his research by pursuing a Master in Fine Arts degree

Amber Dawn
I’m interested In figures, the space they take up and shapes they hold. How subconsious emotions manifest through bodylanguage and physical appearance. Translating a mannerism into a few strokes made with care and presicion or total abandon of thought that somehow capture the essence of a person or feeling. I strive to find ways to translate the secrect language that our bodies all speak
