Justin Hodges

Justin Hodges Work from Under Construction. “The still life has an expansive history in artistic practice, generally conjuring images of tabletops filled with flowers and wine glasses. Less obvious, though, is its ubiquitous existence as advertising, spanning the gap from print to screen. Simply, Under Construction is a body of work, which questions the way […]

Olivia Erlanger

Olivia Erlanger Work from Material Studies. “Vivid, warm light fills the room and spreads over the desk as I sit and work at my computer.

Keen to find aesthetic potential in unassuming sources, […]
