Adam Cruces

Adam Cruces Work from (Un)finished. “This series of images is based on paintings that were left unfinished by artists throughout history. The paintings have been ‘finished’ by Adobe Photoshop CS5′s Content-Aware Fill feature.” – Adam Cruces

Aaron Finnis

Aaron Finnis Work from his oeuvre. “… Aaron’s installations explore concepts of reality, illusion, perception, and deception using the dissonance between the tape sculptures’ similarity in appearance and their assumption of real form through light. Aaron creates art that could be interpreted as a confidence trick: The viewer is deceived by the value of hollow objects […]

Alex M Lee

Alex M Lee Work from Machinic Vision. “This work focuses on the potential for new forms utilizing computer aided design that would present a paradigm shift in representation and photographic imagery. While traditional photography has always been connected to the capturing/indexing of light, this work explores the abilities of digital imaging to shatter that physical […]

Chris Engman

Chris Engman Work from his oeuvre. “We often say, photographs “capture” time. But to capture something is not to understand it, because in the act of capture the thing is changed. Family albums, travel photographs- what they do with time is give it boundaries. They make memory possible by giving it shape. They describe an […]

David Raymond Conroy

Davi Raymond Conroy Work from his oeuvre. “From spiritual transfiguration to critical resistance, some form of distance has always been attributed to the artwork. This distance has historically been considered somewhat revelatory in that it announces a beyond that might open to either sacred or secular enlightenment, and perhaps more recently politics. That the artwork […]

Paul Destieu

Erik Dalzen

Erik Dalzen Work from Some Things. Dalzen has work from Some Things in a show at Guild Gallery II in NYC opening Thursday (6:00 – 7:30 @ 119 9th Avenue / NYC). “Photography often features the usage of an illusionary background creating a setting devoid of planar divisions manifest by a seamless background or skype. Comparable […]

Chris Beckman

Chris Beckman Work from oops. “Somewhere between a home-video mixtape and a postmodern travelogue, “oops”—a ten-minute art video composed entirely of appropriated YouTube videos, seamlessly stitched together via a motif of camera drops—serves both as transportative adventure and metaphorical elucidation of YouTube itself (i.e. endless related videos), exemplifying the Internet’s infinite repository of “throwaway” social […]

Nobuhiro Nakanishi

Nobuhiro Nakanishi Work from Layer Drawings. “The theme of my work is “the physical that permeates into the art piece.”  In a foggy landscape, we no longer see what we are usually able to see – the distance to the traffic light, the silhouette of the trees, the slope of the ground. Silhouettes, distance and […]
