This Year's Jurors
Dani Torvik is a painter based in Santa Cruz, California. She holds a BFA in Pictorial Art from San Jose State University and an MFA in Studio Arts from University of California, Davis. Through methods inspired by Abstract Expressionism, Dani creates in her paintings microcosms that integrate visuals gathered from her immediate surroundings, memories from lived-in environments, impressions of architecture, and references to her own flesh and body. Architectural forms represent her need for structure and balance, and her personal search for social, geographical, and cultural belonging.
Dani’s work has been exhibited in solo and group shows throughout California. She currently teaches Studio Arts at Cabrillo College, in Aptos, CA and at San Jose State University in San Jose, CA.
Kurt Salinas is a ceramicist and painter based in Santa Clara, California. He holds a BFA in Pictorial Art from San Jose State University. Kurt's menagerie of whimsical ceramic dinosaur desserts evokes a deep sense of child-like wonderment and nostalgia. Taking inspiration from his lifelong fascination with prehistoric creatures, love of 90s pop culture, and dessert, Kurt creates eye-catching sculptures that blend elements of reality and fantasy.
Kurt's work has been exhibited in solo and group shows throughout California and part of private collections throughout the US, Europe, Asia, and Australia. Over the past decade, Kurt has worked as a teacher's aide for ceramics at San Jose State University.
