Ben Barretto

Ben Barretto Work from Paintings Paintings. “The set of oil paintings, belonging to a series the artist calls ‘painting paintings’ depict a collision of abstraction and process based action painting. For these works a set amount of oil paint is spread over a number of canvases and the surface of each canvas is systematically stamped […]

Michele Abeles

Michele Abeles Work from English for Secretaries “Ms. Abeles’s images are radiant, seductive and mysterious. They invite and thwart reading. She weaves images and patterns into collagelike, even quiltlike mashups that are nonlinear rebuses — rebuses speaking in tongues. They cross and recross the line between abstraction and representation, also between private and public, between […]

Ryan Perez

Ryan Perez Work from B.O.G.O. Vision “There are three pieces in the series, each using color and form to play with symmetry and compliments: the pink and green set are abstracted lean-tos in a light watermelon scenery, one set sees purple and yellow backdrops with artist’s frames that serve as structure for a building, and […]

Heidi Specker

Heidi Specker Work from D’Elsi (and an install shot from Im Garten). “The 19th-century German landscape gardener Hermann Ludwig Heinrich von Pückler-Muskau introduced the concept of the English park to Germany. His gardens didn’t attempt to imitate or harness the wilderness; rather, they were deliberately cultivated and arranged, intermittently bringing nature into view against buildings […]

Nicholas Gottlund

Nicholas Gottlund Work from Plain and Fancy and Day Book. “Plain and Fancy plays with the concept of animism to present objects (oak leaves, a rug, tools, antlers, a cut branch from a spice bush) which may seem to have an inherent spirit or almost palpable sense of history. The photographs are shot with a […]

Bertrand Fleuret

Bertrand Fleuret Work from Landmasses and Railways. “I am alone. Walking at random. Wandering, as if at random, among the unrecognizable fragments of what were palatial homes, public buildings, private residences, gaming houses and houses of prostitution, theatres, temples, and fountains. I am looking for something”. I used to have nightmares about spelunking. Crawling deep […]

Reynold Reynolds

Reynold Reynolds Work from Six Apartments. “Two screen video projection loop transferred from 16mm with a duration of 12min.  Six Apartments is a poetic document of decline and deterioration—both physical and ideal, hypnotic and melancholic. Six isolated occupants of six different apartments live their lives unaware of each other. Without drama they eat food, wander […]

Ian Aleksander Adams

Ian Aleksander Adams Work from Gray Days. The following is an email dialouge that Ian and I had yesterday that discusses his work. It really was a treat to have an intelligent Trans-Atlantic back and forth about art. Ian: Gray Days is my most recent book project, with the final touches still being put on it. […]

Ernie Button

I have been reading quite a bit about space exploration this week, and it is nice to see some work that is a nice glimpse of the future, as seen from the past.  ____________________________ On the surface, the thought of photographing […]
