Ute Müller

Ute Müller Work from her oeuvre. “…This body of works – paintings, architectural structures, sculptural references – defines a space where the viewer is immediately captured by the beauty of a painting that has its origins in the history of twentieth century abstraction. Yet this is only a transitory emphasis, an instant of burning passion […]

Latifa Echakhch

Latifa Echakhch Work from her current exhibition at galerie kamel mennour. “On the occasion of her third solo show at galerie kamel mennour, Latifa Echakhch will exhibit in the new space on the rue du Pont de Lodi. In line with the works presented at the Kunsthaus Zürich in 2012 and for the Marcel Duchamp […]

Gedi Sibony

Gedi Sibony Work from his oeuvre. “With his sensitive handling of hollow-core doors and commercial carpet, Gedi Sibony is one of several young Biennial artists doing exciting things with sculpture. “I have a family history with these materials; my father was a contractor,” says the 32-year-old New Yorker. His playful transformations of crude elements—like foam […]

Scott Lyall

Scott Lyall Work from Indiscretion at Miguel Abreu Gallery. “Lyall’s paintings, which are in fact digital prints on stretched canvas, are mounted on monochrome backings that frame them, double them, and space them in relation to their environments. As color field images – or the lack of such images – the paintings are generated using […]

Walter de Maria

Walter de Maria Work from his oeuvre. “…He was best known for large-scale outdoor works that often involved simple if rather extravagant ideas or gestures: a SoHo loft filled with two feet of earth, for example, or a solid brass rod two inches in diameter and one kilometer long driven into the ground in Kassel, […]

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. Daylight disappears slowly, burning, falling, bathing the Hudson River in washes of gold and rose. And while I am sure the sunset is spectacular, I keep my back turned, ignoring […]

Sven Lukin

  Sven Lukin Work from his oeuvre. “Lukin’s steady move into actual space culminated at the end of the 1960s in what is probably his best known work—an undulating 120-foot long wall relief in green, pink, and orange, permanently installed at the Empire State Plaza in Albany, New York. The next 30 years of Lukin’s […]

Carla Scott Fullerton

Carla Scott Fullerton Work from her oeuvre. “Carla Scott Fullerton is deeply engaged with sculpture, investigating materials process involved in construction and deconstruction, those being old and new. She questions how forms and formless structures sit together, juxtaposing material forms through processes and playing with shapes that relate to architecture. She works with heavy industrial […]

Niels Trannois

Niels Trannois Work from B (hands in a chinese cookie jar) at Valentin. “Niels Trannois’s paintings can be understood as fragments of the fictional scenario of what could happen if reality were to absent itself, no doubt the submerged side of a world in abeyance overrun by figurative resurgences, ready to hide away or be […]

Ethan Cook

Ethan Cook Work from Lobstee. “It seems only right that Ethan Cook would choose to title this exhibition after a one-word poem by Aram Saroyan. Like Saroyan, Cook tends to lean towards the minimal, favoring an approach centered on visible process, understated gesture, and economy of form. Keen to find aesthetic potential in unassuming sources, […]
