Uproot is pleased to present the work of four fine artists in this virtual exhibit:
Fraser is inspired by ambiguity, discomfort and the potential for violence and desire. The artist explores unclear power relationships with figures who may be being harmed or helped; may be in peril or protected, accosted or embraced. Motive is obscured but something is happening or about to happen – but what? It is ultimately open to interpretation by each viewer.

Michael Hower is a Central Pennsylvania photographer. He photographs history by portraying human objects and structures in modified environments now devoid of human activity. His artwork is not only about the finished photographs and accompanying technical aspects; rather the finished product is part of a process that includes learning local history and lore, consultation of maps, and place seeking journeys.
