"One can feel a....sort of existential frisson while viewing the spare, silhouette drawings of the Atlanta artist Matt Haffner. In these works, Haffner offers reductive black and white images of Southerners living amongst old buildings, streetlights, telephone poles, gas stations, and helicopters. The silhouettes are ghosts haunting Haffner’s scenes. These are urban images, yet they seem frozen in a denatured expanse of opaque gray."
The Southern Open -- "The content of [David] Sullivan’s pieces revolves around the BP oil spill of 2010. In such works as 'Well Connected,' 'Cloud Cuckoo Land,' and 'Pump Me Up,' Sullivan explores the sinister labyrinth that connects the Gulf South to oil and gas production. The pieces are the fine-art equivalent of BP’s new commercial advising tourists to return to the Gulf Coast: cheerfully ominous."
