The artists in After Hours play in the periphery. They engage with the overlooked, the forgotten, and the in-between places that go unrecognized or unacknowledged. Using a variety of media including inkjet transfer, letterpress, lithography, painting, screen-printing, sculpture, and site-specific installation, they create images that appear familiar and ubiquitous - cars on a highway, a desolate landscape, empty spaces, light reflecting across a room. Yet, these images are specific and subjective aims to capture the intangible, preserve the seemly mundane, or convey an essence of place. By removing, re-editing, and employing elements both formal and technical, they construct work that rests in the tension between the representational and abstract, the general and the specific. In a society where we are inundated with images, the work by these artists holds us between the familiar and the uncertain and in the process evokes multiple connotations.
