Peter Puklus

Peter Puklus Work from his oeuvre “Dreamlike symbols, mock-ups, installations, ready-mades – with Handbook to the Stars, Peter Puklus compiles documentation in photographs of a sculpture experiment reminiscent of the form-and-light exercises of the 1920s avant-garde. For Puklus, Handbook to the Stars is an attempt to visualize the infinitely flexible and tricky associative capacity of […]

Jon Rafman

Jon Rafman Work from You Are Standing in an Open Field. “…Journeys through virtual landscapes form the heart of Jon Rafman’s current show, expressing his continuing search for lost loves, ideals and cultures.

Jon Rafman

Jon Rafman Work from New Age Demanded. “Inspired by classical Greek busts, Jon Rafman uses computer software to digitally render three-dimensional forms. The forms act as the structural surface on which two-dimensional Internet-sourced images are applied. The series is presented as large-scale archival pigment digital prints. Each print is created with its own specific texture […]


Ay-O Work from Over the Rainbow Once More. Text courtesy Nick Faust. “Classical busts blasted with rainbow gradients. Ay-O pushes delineated stripes to their decorative end games. Turn vertical/diagonal OP on its side and it give a spanking. His Rainbow oeuvre differs significantly in feel from his more traditional Fluxus work, but doesn’t lack that […]

Sreshta Rit Premnath

Sreshta Rit Premnath Work from The Last Image. “The Last Image draws parallels between the death-drive that spurs urban development and that which fuels image making and meaning making in general, by using the figure of a property developer and builder from Bangalore, M.

Idan Friedman

Idan Friedman Work from Profiles. “Profiles, a project by Israeli-based designer Idan Friedman, references commemorative medals and historic portrait miniatures typically set in gilt metal but introduces a contemporary twist. The portraits, embossed on aluminium throw-away trays, suggest that ordinary people (like Idan’s local cashier pictured) deserve recognition. Skillfully executed, this project perhaps also suggests […]

Geoffrey Pugen

Geoffrey Pugen Work from his oeuvre. “With theatrical absurdity, Pugen explores relationships between real and staged performance, the natural and the artificial, and tensions of virtual identity, through altering and manipulating images. Working with video, film, and photography in the digital realm Pugen renders situations that examine our perceptions of how history, documentation, and simulation […]

Nick van Woert

Nick van Woert Work from his oeuvre. “Van Woert, on the other hand, addresses classical sculpture through his totemic works, which feature busts of Franz Schubert or David and, in the case of “New Order,” Ionic proportions. However, where one might expect classical materials, van Woert favors a kind of Home Depot aesthetic, employing insulation […]
