DoGsWooD:‘Working under the name of DoGsWooD affords me the unconscious and unbridled liberty to fully engage with the artist within’…
Gordon Elliott's work is often a personal and conceptual critique of issues of personal importance that speaks a universal language.

Confined Architectural Space and Psychological Unease
BY GARY SCZERBANIEWICZ
@ VOL 14
ON NOV 17, 2015
"I want to destabilize the viewer in relation to the work."
In Confined Architectural Space and Psychological Unease from PechaKucha Night Buffalo Vol. 14, artist, sculpture, and professor, Gary Sczerbaniewicz shares his practice involving an insatiable fascination with interior architectural spaces that evoke a sense of psychological unease. This compulsion toward an aesthetics of anxiety leads him to fabricate confined space environments which include-scale shifts-using architectural models seamlessly blended into full-sized structures - into which the viewer is invited to physically enter and explore.
The Myth of Perfection: Tolerance is a Matter of Plus or Minus, Choose Your Degree
BY ALEXANDRA P. SPAULDING
@ VOL 15
ON FEB 04, 2016
"You know there's no such thing as perfection, right?...If you can collectively make the imperfections work, you have perfection."
In The Myth of Perfection (Tolerance is a Matter of Plus or Minus, Choose Your Degree) from PechaKucha Night Buffalo Vol. 15, Buffalo-based artist and engineer Alexandra P. Spaulding reflects on her artistic practice, her love of minimalism, and her eventual acceptance of inevitable imperfections. Examining the notions of tolerance and how exacting to the millionth decimal point does not equal perfection, Spaulding focuses both on the visual arts (Minimalism), her own practice (aurally immersive installation art), engineering and manufacturing, and how the conflux of these three schools of thought have made her more accepting of 'the happy accident' and a better artist.

Emily! Don't Do That!
BY EMILY PEASGOOD
@ VOL 11
ON SEP 06, 2018
"I use sound to express things that cause me frustration and joy. I find it cathartic and I find it so much fun. It makes frustrating things tolerable and fun things magical. For me, sound captures experience, truth, and memory in a way that no other sense can."
Despite the seemingly obstructive title, Emily Peasgood shows she is a risk-taking creative who throws caution to the wind (sometimes literally), experimenting with sound and social encounters, her work is original, thought-provoking and uplifting.
