Dom Smith

Dom Smith Work from his oeuvre. “My practice extracts forms from the physical world and reconsiders their image through fragmentation and reordering. The transferability from one state of being to another and then back again provides the basis for my content. This preoccupation has brought about a pattern in my work wherein physical objects and […]

Federico Acal and Tom Volkaert

Federico Acal and Tom Volkaert Work from I sang, and thought I sang very well; but he just looked up into my face with a very quizzical expression at Hole Of The Fox. “We communicate, we navigate. We walk on the streets and see quizzical expressions. We smile back. We are just figures in the […]

Melike Kara

Melike Kara Work from Real Sorbet at Kunstraum Ortloff. Melike Kara’s work makes specific reference to the last remnants of modernism. Her pared back metal sculptural forms illustrate the streamlined potential for poetry within the sleek cool of industrial design. Her use of colour suggests a revisiting of 50’s America, with a nostalgic glimpse at […]

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 […]

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 […]
