Into the Fourth: Hadley Nunes
Hadley Nunes’ recent paintings explore a diversity of interests including art historical research and travel, virtual and augmented reality, dance, and floral arranging. Taking inspiration from artists throughout history who reference nature and the body, Nunes’ vibrantly energetic works straddle the line between abstraction and representation.

Artificial Realities: Phil Jung and James Knudsen
Phil Jung’s series of photographs documenting zoo enclosures around the United States features painted backgrounds of trees and mountains alongside living and artificial foliage, while fluorescent or tinted lights add to the stark, unnatural atmosphere. James Knudsen’s richly textured photographs taken in and around Waikiki and Chinatown offer a nuanced view of the city that goes beyond expected associations with paradise, surfers, and sunny vacations.
