Jon Kessler

Jon Kessler Work from his ouvre. “The Web is an immersive installation that addresses the significance of the Internet and mobile devices in our lives while simultaneously examining the role of the viewer. The idea for the piece came to Jon Kessler on a New York subway ride when he realized that at least half […]

Bahar Yurukoglu

Bahar Yurukoglu Work from his oeuvre. “Not often does an artist come along who makes installations that look similar to what you may imagine the sensation of teleportation to be like, but here he is — Bahar Yurukoglu. Bahar is from Washington and uses Lights, perspex, glass and projections to create these absolutely mesmerising visuals. […]

Richard Artschwager

Richard Artschwager Work from his oeuvre. “The practical skills that he developed as a craftsman, along with his use of unconventional materials like Formica wood-grain laminate, Celotex ceiling insulation panels, and rubberized horsehair, distinguished Artschwager’s efforts from those of his contemporaries. His scientific training also came to bear on his work. In both his early grisaille […]

Trisha Donnelly

Trisha Donnelly Work from her oeuvre. “..video, sound, photographs, drawings, and performance, Trisha Donnelly explores the power of the human mind to will ideas into existence.

Lindsay Lawson

Lindsay Lawson Work from Das Ding (and others). “The thing in itself (das ding an sich) is an object independent of the senses. It is a thing without a viewer: tangible, but not perceivable. This video mimics the famous pottery scene from the movie Ghost when Sam (who is a ghost for most of the […]

Rick Silva

Rick Silva Work from his oeuvre. Silva’s trilogy (as presented here) is a sampling of his work that I feel addresses similar aesthetic and conceptual concerns while maintaining a dynamic and evolving approach in the discussion of place, technology, and perception placed within the context of a developing method of inquiry. The phrenetic pace of […]

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 […]

Greg Wasserstrom

Greg Wasserstrom Work from USA!USA! (The Doldrums) From an interview with Liz Kuball: Liz: I love your project The Doldrums. It feels really cohesive in its disjointedness to me, like there’s a madness with a method underneath. Is that intentional, or does it just come out that way? I tend to be worried about drawing […]
