Jake Evans

Jake Evans Work from Office Paper. “‘Office Paper’ is a short publication exploring perceptions of the 9-5 office job, aiming to investigate themes of disposability and mundanity. The book itself consists of a series of illustrations compiled with Amazon stationary reviews.” – Jake Evans

Alex Dolan

Alex Dolan Work from Pure Clear “On a clear day you can see forever. This is one of my favorite movies. I like it not just for its story but also because the title makes me feel nice. I like the word ‘clear’. To be clear means to be free from smog of unconscious living. […]

Aaron Hegert

Aaron Hegert Work from his oeuvre. “In my recent work I have been using photography to create a different kind of document. The photographs all employ some level of digital manipulation–certain elements are obscured, exaggerated, or augmented by a variety of techniques that add to, invert, composite, or double the images back on themselves–in order […]

Brett Ginsburg

Brett Ginsburg Work from his oeuvre. “The art objects I create serve as new interpretations of idols and icons. Works reflect on the redress of commodities, desires, and fetishization/frivolity within a material indulgent culture. These notions embedded within my works aim to rearticulate our cultures trajectory and pursuit in image viewing through conscious appropriations and […]

Olaf Nicolai

Olaf Nicolai Work from his oeuvre. “Nicolai combines art with observations on markets and materialism, with memories and archive material, with relational aesthetics, and with scenes from everyday life. He creates artificial landscapes and urban scenes, augments consumer goods into gargantuan items, and works with distorted advertising art. Thus, familiar images are put in new […]

Rachel de Joode

Rachel de Joode Work from her oeuvre. “Rachel de Joode is a multimedia artist interested in processes of deconstruction and the abstraction of banal paraphernalia. Using material representations to explore social and cultural structures, she investigates the relationship between man and object, the contemporary and the historical, with a playful anthropological bent. de Joode is […]

Yola Monakhov

Yola Monakhov Work from Living Pictures. “The work takes its name from 19th century tableaux vivants, which staged living scenes suspended in time. But rather than freezing life into image, I pursue the impossibility of unfrozen life. Through collaborations with scientists, ecologists, growers, and other naturalists, I bring studio setups into the living environment. I engage […]

Anne de Vries

Anne de Vries Work from Trails Rising at The Green Room. “The Green Room presents ‘Trails Rising’ by Anne de Vries, an installation that continues the theme of “merging matter and information” following his recent exhibition ‘Trails of the Hive Mind’ at Sandy Brown Gallery, Berlin. De Vries is interested in how the world is […]
