|Keith is a painter, and has been a resident artist at Olivet since
2004. In that time, the majority of the work produced has been driven
by the relationships between land, time, and place. The foremost
concern in this work is color.
Keith, his wife Brooke, and his son Lucas live in Northwood.
|Mark is a painter. He currently teaches art and film at Lakeside School located in
Horsham, PA. He studied art at the University of Delaware and received his B.F.A.
in painting in 2001. The subjects of Mark's work have mainly consisted of common
everyday objects and portraits of his friends. He is currently exploring themes
involving youth, old age,
religion, humor and pop culture.
Mark currently resides in Glenside, PA with his wife Kelly.
|For the past 2 years Ben has worked in school-artist residencies with the
Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Philadelphia Arts in Education Partnership.
As an artist-educator I have specialized in exploration and conceptualizing the art
idea, and how each student may learn to incorporate his or her unique vision in
relation to the idea. The classroom becomes a stage where students create
unique multiples, which are then merged into a collective vision. The process of
clustering and/or framing a fractured group of unique individual parts is the
underlying thread passing though my work with young artists. Collective forms are
arranged, stacked, and drawn together, and then orchestrated architecturally to
build an artwork relevant within a specific context.
I am also an active member of the collective Tim Rollins and K.O.S. in New York
City. I am a graduate of The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and the
University of Pennsylvania, where I studied visual arts, art history and art theory.

founding member of Tiger Strikes Asteroid, a Philadelphia-based artist

constant quest to represent the sublime.
