Hugh Scott-Dougles

Hugh Scott-Douglas Work from Moire Paintings. “Scott-Douglas makes work that refers to production itself, to its consumption and to its container, using visual cues gleaned from minimalism and op art. The central dialectic of the work springs from the tension between the need for a rigid authority figure, on the one hand, and the very […]

Pekka Niittyvirta

Pekka Nittyvirta Work from Corrupted (and one from Trinity). “I’m interested in the idea of visual “noise” or disruption in your images and was wondering if you could talk a little bit about the role that this noise plays when making an image. I think that it is important to shed first some light over […]

Iman Issa

Iman Issa Work from Triptychs (and others). “Issa’s Triptych series (#1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6) from 2009, is a group of six beautiful wall installations comprised of photography, video objects and texts. They are images of places she collected in New York and restaged; settings that occurred through a personal psychological process in order to reveal personal associations. […]

Catharine Maloney

Catharine Maloney Work from Teleplay Part I. Maloney’s works lack subtlety with the same mix  of self-awareness and self-deprecation that would permit one to wear a faux-star trek uniform constructed of a pastel turtleneck and what looks to be American cheese. This is the power of the work, it expertly capitalizes on the nostalgia driven zeitgeist that breeds the desire […]

Carson Fisk-Vittori

Carson Fisk-Vittori Work from her oeuvre. “Fisk-Vittori creates work about everyday objects and environments. Arrangements of objects are presented as photographs and installations that question the function, meaning, and history surrounding that object and display. The arrangements feature both deliberate and casual formation that satirize advertisements and lifestyle magazines. Her interest lies in the relationship […]

Georges Rousse

Georges Rousse Work from his oeuvre. Below is an excerpt from Rousse’s correspondences with Canadian Art Historian, Jocelyne Lupien. Paris, January 9, 2000 Good evening Jocelyne, Your letter has got me thinking about the camera, it makes me wonder about the meaning and evolution of my works over the years. I do not have your scientific or […]

Yamini Nayar

Yamini Nayar Work from recent works. “…Nayar sets up complex situations that reveal a psychologically, multivalent condition. However, unlike the images of Thomas Demand (whose use of constructed models has been an influence on Nayar), Nayar’s images never allude to real, existing spaces. Alternatively, they remain firmly planted within the vernacular of the imaginary. Whereas […]

Renato Leotta

Renato Leotta Work from Mirror Project. “Mirror Project is a series of exhibitions organized by Barriera, Turin, where the invited artists will work and discuss with the space, developing a site specific project. The protagonist of Mirror Project’s first edition is Renato Leotta. Leotta worked on space-time coordinates, defining a new path within the exhibition space. […]

Daniel Freytag

Daniel Freytag Work from Monolith Alright, I am going to take a quick stab at this work based purely on how the aesthetic of these pieces fit in the scope of contemporary works. However, this particular aesthetic (similar to the superdutch) has a loose connection to the remainder of Freytag’s work. What I find most […]

Daniel Everett

Daniel Everett Work from his oeuvre. “Daniel Everett embodies the current technological zeitgeist shared by post dot-com kids, the kids of the dot-com kids, and the relationship we have to our interconnectivity (the internet). His work is jaded, earnest, and self mocking at the same time.” – Beautiful/Decay
