Steve Banks of Davenport is an artist whose work is about finding meaningful identity and individuality within popular culture. In his work, he strives to make energetic images that explore relationships and interactions through compositional juxtapositions. His image-making process is fueled by curiosity regarding the process of partial cultural assimilation. Bank’s images address how the search for individuality often leads to how we attempt to form interpersonal connections while our souls simultaneously float in an isolating sea of cultural white noise.
Aaron Tinder of Indianola , Iowa , is an artist and professor at Grand View University . His work revolves around the exploration of personal narratives as a resident of the rural Midwest and how they collide with political and social themes. Tinder’s work combines multiple layers of images and symbols which are forced to reconcile into compositions filled with spatial tension; encouraging a visual narrative-based conversation.Both of these artists address the human connection to culture; popular, political and social. Once focuses on the personal narrative as a Midwest resident, while the other focuses on the overall complex of identity and culture for the general public.
