Affiliati Peducci / Savini

Affiliati Peducci / Savini Work from their oeuvre. Their exhibition is on until the end of the month at Galleria Rubin in Milan. I find it appropriate to include the press release from their current exhibition, translated via google translate as it mirrors translations of classical sculptures in their works. Ironically, many of these busts […]

Michael Mandiberg

Michael Mandiberg Work from “In 1936 Walker Evans photographed the Burroughs, a family of sharecroppers in Depression era Alabama. In 1979 in Sherrie Levine rephotographed Walker Evans’ photographs from the exhibition catalog “First and Last.” In 2001 Michael Mandiberg scanned these same photographs, and created and to facilitate their dissemination as a […]

Phillipe Halsman

Phillipe Halsman Work from Jump. “Jump was born in 1952, Halsman said, after an arduous session photographing the Ford automobile family to celebrate the company’s 50th anniversary. As he relaxed with a drink offered by Mrs. Edsel Ford, the photographer was shocked to hear himself asking one of the grandest of Grosse Pointe’s grande dames […]

Elodie Pong

Elodie Pong Work from her oeuvre. “Pong’s works explore the complexity of human relationships, the function and validity of cultural codes and references, and other social phenomena in contemporary society – specifically her own generation. “We are knights on the trajectories of a post-everything era,” she says. Her recent body of work can be seen […]

Ariel Schlesinger

Ariel Schlesinger Work from his oeuvre. “For L’Angoisse de la page blanche (The Anguish of the White Page, 2007), two sheets of standard-size copy paper are pressed up against each other as they spin in circles on a low table.

Ron Jude Work from Alpine Star. “Photographer Ron Jude selected images from The Star News, a local newspaper in McCall, Idaho to sequence without text for this book. The images are reprinted using stochastic screening, a frequency modulation technique similar to conventional halftone printing that uses mathematical values to generate random density patterns. The printing […]

Alex Artz

Alex Artz Work from Ailurophilia. While the statement is from her project Human-Animal, I find it applicable to the images above as well. “I continually wondered how adaptable the human home is for other species, whether that species lives in its own bedroom or in a cage in the backyard. The animals in these pictures […]

Zach Shipko

Zach Shipko Work from his oeuvre. Shipko’s work is more of an examination of internet culture and kitsch than anything else. In the same way that it is accessible to the casual viewer, it also relies on a thorough understanding (or at least an informed inundation) of internet culture and various memes. I am wondering […]

Justin Shull

Justin Shull Work from Terrestrial Shrub Rover. ““From the time of our birth, humans have felt a primordial urge to explore — to blaze new trails, map new lands, and answer profound questions about ourselves and our universe.” – NASA In the spirit of NASA and its forthcoming 2020 lunar expeditions in preparation for colonizing […]

Marco Rosichelli

Marco Rosichelli Work from Sculpture The Ride and Handle with Care. “As an artist, I see myself relating to that idea of Peter Pan, a mischievous boy who can fly and refuses to grow up. In a post industrial society, the boundaries between youth and adult have blurred, and youthfulness has become an acceptable and […]
