Sam Falls

Sam Falls Work from Color Dying Light. “‘When I was asking for help titling the book friends would ask ‘well, what’s it about?’ and I’d say, ‘It’s about color, it’s about dying, and it’s about light’.

Phil Collins

Phil Collins Work from his oeuvre. “In all the different strands of his practice Collins investigates the perils of representation and the emotional core of such seemingly transparent media as video and photography.

Adam Cruces

But recently I’ve been more intrigued with how people use their (personal) space […]

Steven Baldi

Steven Baldi Work from his oeuvre. “Steven Baldi’s work attempts to examine the multifaceted nature of visual language by taking on overburdened material forms of representation such as painting, 16mm film and photography, thus re-establishing meaning through process method and proximity.  Baldi utilizes cascading sign systems inherent in the photographic medium to evaluate how the […]

Pavel Büchler

Summing up his own practice as “making nothing happen”, he […]
