Password: BroersmaMSU2022

Virginia Broersma is a Los Angeles-based artist whose work focuses on patterns of representation in figurative painting. Her engagement with the art community involves curating, writing, collaborative projects, and public art along with her studio practice. In 2019 she launched The Artist's Office, through which she creates systems of support for artists' professional practices. This involves increasing professional capacity by offering needs-based tools and opportunities to share knowledge between peers and professionals. This work is done with candor and a critical eye towards art world systems that are failing to create a sustainable life for artists.

Broersma has exhibited extensively in Los Angeles as well as internationally and in the various other cities that she has lived, which include San Diego, Savannah, Chicago and Santa Fe.

Jake Ziemann (b. 1986, Des Moines, Iowa, United States) is an artist living and working in Los Angeles, California. His sculptures formally counterbalance bodily shapes with utilitarian support, conjoining painted ceramic forms with everyday, industrial or found materials. Informed by themes of intimacy, codependency, and gender, his work conflates themes of strength and vulnerability as well as the abstract with the figurative.

Ziemann completed his MFA at the California College of the Arts in San Francisco and holds a BFA from The Art Institute of Chicago, as well as a BA from Central College in Pella, Iowa. Ziemann recently completed a ceramics residency at Anderson Ranch in Colorado, and his work has been exhibited and reviewed across the United States and internationally.

Password: ChronisterMSU2022

In his paintings, James Chronister has produced a visual language that oscillates between personal and universal ideas of landscape and place. Based on his own photographs of his native state of Montana, Chronister renders images using thinned black oil paint on a white or neutral colored ground, conveying space and depth utilizing mark making akin to an intaglio print. In these recent works, the white ground becomes highlights, the opaque passages become shadows and cross hatching become mid tones. Unassuming but vastly complex in their subtlety, these scenes of nature depict an unseen environment that is both rich and rewarding of investigation.

Though reminiscent of such postmodern masters as Gerhard Richter and Luc Tuymans, Chronister has devised a painterly language much his own. Working with a tiny brush and one dark, neutral color on carefully hued, off-white canvases, Chronister achieves a startling range of tonality and depth. Viewed up-close, the paintings are constructed by a series of small, discrete marks: a binary system of data--like type on a page--that results in a surreal density of information. Step back, and the pictures cohere. The eye and mind struggle to reconcile the illusionism of these paintings with the narrow, restrained means of their technique.

-Jake Longstreth


Chronister earned his BFA (High Honors) as a University Scholar (Davidson Honors College) from the University of Montana, Missoula in 2001 and his MFA (with Distinction) from the California College of the Arts, San Francisco in 2004. Chronister was awarded the Fox and Miles Scholarships while at the University of Montana and the Richard K. Price Scholarship while at the California College of the Arts. In 2013, Chronister was awarded the Artist-In-Residence at the Lux Art Institute in Encinitas, California, which was accompanied by a survey of his work from the years 2009-2013. Chronister was nominated for the SECA Award from the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in 2010 and 2018. In 2020 Chronister was a recipient of the Bay Area Visual Artist Production Relief Grant from Evergold Projects, San Francisco.
