Brian O’Doherty

Brian O’Doherty Work from P! at Simone Subal Gallery, New York. “Attempting to trace Brian O’Doherty’s artistic concerns through his seven decade career is akin to falling down a rabbit hole. This would undoubtedly please the artist, who delights in the type of misdirection that aims at inspiring deeper thought. His output includes mazelike grids (Vowel […]

NONOTAK

NONOTAK Work from Daydream V.2. “DAYDREAM is an audiovisual installation that generates space distortions. Relationship between space and time, accelerations, contractions, shifts and metamorphosis have been the lexical field of the project. This installation aimed at establishing a physical connection between the virtual space and the real space, blurring the limits and submerging the audience […]

Arslan Sükan

Arslan Sükan Work from INtheVISIBLE at Galerist. “Through a process of eradications and slight additions, Arslan Sukan assembles photographs based on the formulaic codes that dominate the installation views of white-cube gallery spaces. His digital images document international venues, many of them familiar and some even identifiable, prompting seasoned art viewers to engage in a […]

Mary Temple

Mary Temple Work from her oeuvre. “Mary Temple’s new installation Northwest Corner, Southeast Light, 2011, creates an empty space for contemplation behind the glass front wall of the Rice University Art Gallery. Inside, the cool white walls are empty; they surround a white oak floor, or rather, a platform that takes up all but the […]

Elizabeth Corkery

Elizabeth Corkery Work from her oeuvre. “Corkery works through an ongoing fascination with the concept of simulation and the multiple with specific regard to their relationship with printmaking. Her practice currently centres on large-scale installation pieces which initiate a slippage between the conventionally two-dimensional nature of print media and a more volumetric architectural space. Often […]

Naama Arad

Naama Arad Work from his/her oeuvre. “I am interested in art as an experience, both intellectually and sensually, and thus I create installations surrounding and containing the viewer; building a sort of setting for one to be “present inside of. In these installations I always try to create new locations by which the “self is […]

Heather Cleary

Heather Cleary Work from her oeuvre. “Reality can be impossible to pin down, and these images intend to further explore this notion.  I work at home with domestic objects such as side tables, fruit, magazines and houseplants. By selecting, modifying, segmenting, and/or isolating items from their context, I pull objects from utility into abstraction.  I […]

Martin Oppel

Martin Oppel Work from his oeuvre. “Dominating his space were what appeared to be gravity-defying stacks of rock, marble and concrete, which were in fact sculptures made from styrofoam painted and modeled just enough to deceive for an instant. But unlike a magician’s levitation trick, Oppel wants his illusions to be broken, so that the viewer […]

Aaron Finnis

Aaron Finnis Work from his oeuvre. “… Aaron’s installations explore concepts of reality, illusion, perception, and deception using the dissonance between the tape sculptures’ similarity in appearance and their assumption of real form through light. Aaron creates art that could be interpreted as a confidence trick: The viewer is deceived by the value of hollow objects […]
