Dan Holdsworth

Dan Holdsworth Work from Mirrors FTP. “The mirror as a tool for the receptacle of representation has been utilised ever since the early progressions of the camera obscura and of course its traces are left within the very process of film-based photography, in regards to the imprint of light and time onto the negative and […]

Daniel Rozin

Daniel Rozin Work from his ongoing exhibition at Bitforms. “Since the late 1990s, Rozin’s constructions in software and sculpture have investigated the psychological and optical cues inherent to image building, such as pattern and the materiality of the picture plane. In a departure from the traditional rectilinear grid, which was the foundation of his 2010 […]

Tom Burr

Tom Burr Work from Sentence at Bortolami Gallery. “…One distinction of Burr’s work that persists is his consideration of the ephemeral. This interest extends beyond time to all sensory experiences, which must be transitory by nature. He describes individual sculptures as ‘moments’ and thinks of their varied qualities in terms of musical notes, temperatures, and […]

Pim Leenan

Pim Leenen Work from his/her oeuvre. “Compared with the existence of space or matter, the existence of time is always something fragile, something paradoxical, as though it is not quite real.

Jeppe Hein

Jeppe Hein Work from Geometric Mirrors I-III. “Geometric Mirrors is a series of mirror angles, each consists of two mirrors connected to each other at angles of 90° to form a corner.

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 […]

Espírito Santo

Espírito Santo Work from his oevure. “Espírito Santo’s personal interpretation of the minimalist aesthetic has been described by The New York Times as “a pure form of visual perception” and by Frieze magazine as a means to “sort out the chaos of everyday experience”. And yet, despite this distinguished profile on the world stage, Iran do Espírito Santo remains […]

Eileen Quinlan

Eileen Quinlan Work from Smoke and Mirrors. “…As the title of the series suggests, the logic of this work is divided between the rhetoric of a popular skepticism about the verity of the representational image, and the lack of a descriptive capacity regarding its material reality. That something is being obfuscated is asserted, but what […]
