Michael Demers

Michael Demers Work from Date Paintings (You Tube). “The conceptual artist On Kawara has produced an ongoing series of “date paintings” (the Today series), which consist entirely of the date on which the painting was executed in simple lettering set against a solid background. If the painting could not be completed on the day it […]

Judith Baumann

Judith Baumann Work from Travels with John. “Travels with John delves into my fantasy life in which I travel across the country with John Baldessari, imagining our conversations on life, love and landscape. In addition to recreating myriad conversations between John and I, I have collected and reinterpreted snapshots of our travels together ranging from […]

Artie Vierkant

Artie Vierkant Work from his oeuvre. Shortest statement ever: “His work concerns the degree to which digital media constitute fully tangible objects, actors which are both pliable and physical, structures to be broken into pieces and reconceived.” - Artie Vierkant

Tim Davis

Tim Davis Work from Permanent Collection (writing from The New Antiquity). “You are standing in a field in Italy, looking at a pile of rocks. They are unremarkable, rutting out the ground like any gentle reminder that we live on something called a “crust.” You’ve seen rocks and these are rocks. But someone else—a friend, […]

Pauline Bastard

Martijn Henkriks

Martijn Hendriks Work from his oeuvre. There is a good interview here. “Martijn Hendriks’s videos, sculptures, and installations often involve seemingly unproductive gestures. Exploring how such unproductive acts like displacements, mistranslation, removals, withholding things, obstructions, overdoing things, repetition, mismatchings, and attempts at impossible or redundant tasks may become productive, a common thread in his work […]
