Ernestina Forbis is originally from Houston, TX, but recently has relocated to the Texas Hill Country to pursue a life off-grid. Forbis has long used found animal bones as a meditation on mortality and memory in her private life and in her music performances as How I Quit Crack (a music and performance-art project she has headed for over 10 years). For this show, Bone Altar, Forbis displays some of her favorite finds, ceremoniously wrapped in glowing mason twine, and arranged as altars for the contemplation of our animal selves. These assemblages of bones wrapped in luminous string will adorn the gallery in a installation juxtaposing day-glow and Dia de los Muertos. Simply said, the installation Bone Altar is a way of paying homage to her new neighbors that inhabit the forests around her new home.

Richard Saenz is avant-garde fashion since 1998. Deconstructed garments, hand painted pieces, asymmetrical shapes, unfinished hems, irregular stitching. Saenz's work is influenced by designers like Rei Kawakubo (Comme des Garçons), Martin Margiela, Junya Watanabe, Susan Cianciolo, Masaki Matsushima, Yohji Yamamoto, and others. His work is currently sold in Japan, Indonesia, and Poland.
