Frédéric Nauczyciel spends his time between Paris and Baltimore. Frédéric has collaborated with legendary voguing dancer, Marquis Revlon Clayton, and is more recently known for his work within Baltimore's underground 'voguing scene', which has been making headlines worldwide.

Frédéric Nauczyciel is exhibiting three of nine large-format portraits from his 2009/2010 series Le Temps Devant (Our Time Ahead). Nauczyciel explains, "This series refers to a specific relationship with time in the French countryside, the expression of an anachronism and the survival of a utopia. The photographs do not show what is the French rural history, per say; rather, they reveal what would remain from the rural utopia nowadays. The paradoxical tensions between tradition and modernity create a movement of time ahead." Subjects reflected in Frédéric's works include a Milk Breeder, a Huntress, and a Stud Farmer's Spouse.

Frédéric's work is paired with the paintings of Baltimore painter, Pete Cullen. "Quincunx, the newest series of still-life paintings by Pete Cullen, examines the intersections of history, power, conflict, and communication through the visual contemplation of artifacts of contemporary life in Baltimore City. Time and place are integral facets of this body of work, acting as both mirror and lens". ~Cullen

Pete Cullen is a Baltimore-based American artist born in 1981. He received his MFA from the Maryland Institute, College of Art in 2009. He is currently an adjunct instructor at the Community College of Baltimore County.
