Layers of thick oil paint float in the foreground of The Revenge by Chris Barnard leading the eye down a road to a darkening sky. Casey Ruble's "intimately scaled paper collages depict scenes that appear ordinary but have a charged history." Using a former Catholic orphanage, a once Jewish cemetery that is now an abandoned playground and other places based in New Orleans, the Offing series presents the city's "curious relationship to the deceased."

The show stopper of Volta goes to Japanese artist Satoru Tamura whose kinetic sculpture Point of Contact for Nagashima creates "intermittent blinks from dozens of small bulbs using various points of contact as an energy source." The work is based on"destruction of meaning," the main theme present in the artist's work. His work seeks to "create a pure white idea with no background."
