Archives for the Month of May, 2011

Joe McKay

Joe McKay Work from Sunset Solitaire. “Sunset Solitaire references computer games, of course, in this case one played by an individual and watched by others, but there are a range of other associations. The Hudson River School painters and Mark Rothko’s glowing rectangles readily come to mind, as do the evocatively nostalgic memories of drive-in […]

Zach Nader

Zach Nader Work from Counterweight. “I investigate presentation and representation of self, others and viewpoint. My questions include: Where and how is experience constructed? What are the possibilities of history, truth and fiction in photographic images? Can the point in which meaning adheres to representations be shifted? And what is their role in constructing personal […]

Marc Silver

Marc Silver Work from There are no others, There is only us. “There are no others, There is only us” is an amazing video filmed by Marc Silver in 2009. Marc was born in London and works worldwide as a filmmaker and creative director.  His art installations and documentaries identify locations of power and potentials for […]

Doug Rickard

Doug Rickard Work from A New American Picture. The older notions of photographers physically exploring their world may have in some ways come to pass. The Egglestons, Shores, Levitts, Winogrands ventured out with perhaps only the loosest intentions or framework of a “project” and allowed the world to provide. It is common now for artists […]

Michel de Broin

Michel de Broin Work from Réparations (the video of this piece is here). “Reparations is an initiative in the course of which used plastic bottles found by chance on the street are recuperated and transformed into rockets.

Chris Collins

Chris Collins Work from his oeuvre. “Much of the material Collins chooses to work with are dated and with limited aesthetic means. There is an impending sense of mortality linked to the obsolete junkyard of the virtual realm, where things are lost, or constantly being updated or redefined. Core beliefs about identity, love and the […]

Sean Eno

Sean M. Eno Work from Defenders. Also see Starship by  Bernard Gigunon. “We see the great city in the sky at a distance, across the water. A safe distance? Certain structures, when observed through a telephoto lens and isolated against the Rococo sky, take on the characteristics of enormous spacecraft, hovering. What are these craft? […]

Pascual Sisto

Pascual Sisto Work from Every Now and Then (currently showing at “Every Now and Then, a solo exhibition by acclaimed artist Pascual Sisto. Pascual Sisto’s practice is a balance between what is hidden and what is revealed. Through a constant research of synchrony and symmetry he creates clean and detailed settings able to amaze […]

Laura Plageman

Laura Plageman Work from Response. “In this series I am responding to photographs both as representations and tangible objects. Through physically altering enlarged prints and then re-photographing the results, I create works that oscillate between image and object, photography and sculpture, landscape and still life. While they may appear illusory, the resulting pictures are documents […]
