Photographer MJ Sharp is an artist and educator based in Durham, North Carolina. A Tennessee native, she came to Duke University as an undergraduate ready to major in chemistry, but one art history survey course with Professor Rona Goffen derailed her into the humanities and left her with a lifelong love of art history, which conveniently, continues to be pertinent to the study of contemporary photography.
Nancy Cohen’s works are comprised of many mediums: handmade paper, found objects, resin and, for the past 10 years, glass. She chooses a basic form and, using it repetitively, transforms the object into rays of morphed forms that crawl across the surface of a wall. Cohen’s themes are based in particle physics, mathematics, and chemistry.
