“Sarah Amos is an artist who continually pushes the boundaries of the landscape tradition. She does so also with her chosen medium of printmaking, not afraid to explore, experiment and invent. Contrary to the standard practice of printing editions, Amos makes works that are unique states. She draws over many of her prints, adding additional information in pencil, ink, paint or wash. The works are ambitious in size: they are no longer merely works on paper but instead tapestry-like in scale. The image is pushed all the way to the edge, which not only redefines the “printmaking border” but also positions the works within the realm of painting.” – Vincent Alessi, Critic, Melbourne, Australia Travel often fuels native Australian Sarah Amos’ newest bodies of work, and her 2014 works are largely inspired by a journey funded by the 2013 Joan Mitchell Award. Amos combined her recent travel experience to Central Australia with vanguard printmaking techniques using unconventional, woven materials and hand stitching. This new pivotal thesis by Amos questions the contemporary boundaries of printmaking through a groundbreaking, innovative process. Amos’ interest in using felt, linen, canvas, hemp and jute came from her desire to create many printed elements placed together on one surface, while maintaining the flexibility of manipulation, until she was ready to commit to the final image. The rawness of these fibrous fabrics mimics paper in weight, size, and readiness to accept a variety of printmaking techniques. Unlike any other print by Amos, in these latest mixed media works, thread replaces previously hand painted gouache and printed felt and linen have all replaced paper. “I have been interested, for years now, in textiles from indigenous cultures and have had a curiosity about their anthropological importance and historical significance. The idea that these sometimes mural-sized textiles have the ability to tell a story or impart a specifi

Shen Chen
Biography : b. 1955, Shanghai, China EDUCATION 1990 MFA, Boston University, Massachusetts 1989 New York Studio School of Painting and Sculpture, New York 1988 Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Maine 1982 BFA, Shanghai Academy of Theater, Shanghai 1978 Shanghai Art College, Shanghai Detailed Description :
Shen Chen: A Predisposition for Abstraction By Jonathan Goodman Shen Chen has been making abstract paintings for many years now—he began in 1982, when he had just graduated with a B.F.A. from the Shanghai Academy of Theater. At the time his inspiration came from Chinese literati and ink paintings. While he had solo shows at the China National Museum of Art and Beijing Gallery, and during the 1980s participated in several underground movements and schools, Shen Chen still had not expanded his idiom to include influence from Western abstract painters—he simply did not have examples on hand. But then, in 1988, he received a fellowship from the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Maine, which brought him to America. He also became an exchange student for the New York Studio School of Painting and Sculpture, after which he moved to Boston, where he finished his M.F.A. degree from Boston University in 1991. Once he got his master’s, Shen Chen decided to move to New York to continue his career in art. In many ways, Shen Chen is no longer only Chinese or American; instead, like many artists from foreign countries who live and work in New York, he sees himself as part of the international community that has developed in the city. In fact, he has said, “Living in New York, I don’t feel I am a foreigner.” His current painting reflects the Asian and Western influences he has exposed himself to: he says, “My works reflect mixed cultures, both classical Chinese painting—literati painting in particular—and Western art.” At the same time, he is quick to exclude himself from contemporary Chinese painting and new Western art, largely because he feels any genuine or avant-garde art must be international and transcend particular cultures. His new paintings demonstrate a fineness of hand that in fact cannot be culturally placed, even when they suggest an esthetic grounded in Western practitioners of abstraction such as Mark Rothko and Agnes Marti
Lianghong Feng
Biography : 1962 Born in Shanghai, China    EDUCATION  1983 Shanghai Art & Design school, Shanghai, China.  1989 Central Academy of Art & Design, Beijing, China.   Detailed Description :
Chinese artist Lianghong Feng's paintings synthesize influences from the New York School of Abstract Expressionism and those of ancient Chinese calligraphy. But they transcend mere fusion: Feng interprets the tropes of abstraction with a compositional savvy that elevates his works to a uniquely realized art. Feng says, “I must avoid my pre-existing knowledge and constructs, and enter my personal terra incognita.” Though he clearly channels the hands of 20th century abstract masters (and also cites urban graffiti as a primary painting inspiration), his spontaneity is honest and his language is his own. The images evoke ethereal landscapes, snatches of dreams, the beauty lurking in the countless corners of the urban environment.

"These paintings are experiential landscapes, ones to be felt as well as seen. I paint these environments as they present themselves to me, not as unpopulated woodlands but as dynamic, ever changing places thick with anticipation, dread, happiness, calm. While the crux of this work is the notion that over time the presence of human emotion and activity animate a place, human figures are deliberately absent. There is no person or other identity to prevent the viewer from occupying that space with his or her own histories and projections." – Allison Gildersleeve Echoing and inspired by the formal languages of such contemporary painters as Terry Winters, Mamma Andersson and Amy Sillman, Allison Gildersleeve continues to bend the landscape genre into a different language -- a painting language -- that takes history, memory, and time all into account and turns them into tangible elements of her landscape. Gildersleeve achieves this synthesis by playing overtly with the canvas’ positive/ negative shapes, often beginning her paintings in black and white as she describes the clear shapes in each tangle of branches or the cross sections of stonewalls. The high density patterning serves a dual functionality: firstly, it flattens the painting, and puts the viewer’s gaze on the warp and weft of her composition; and secondly, it provides the artist with the intricate lacework through which she can weave her high pitch of color. Color also plays a pivotal role in Gildersleeve’s work, and she is not shy about how she uses it to great advantage. The pinks are unexpected, and shocking. The flat gray unusually creates negative space as it helps the composition describe an object. She comments, “I use color to weave the patterns together, create knots of lines that unravel in other parts of the paintings. From time to time, I am using black and white in order to strip down the paintings into pure pattern, shape, and line, and then building back on that platform, bri

 Detailed Description :
Grade's work overtly engages with its surrounding environments, both architectural and natural. When indoors, his work references built space. When presented outdoors, the work evolves materially. Weather patterns affect the work, and the exposed surfaces, evolve, disintegrate and morph into something new. Collector was installed in the Willapa Bay in Washington State as an oyster bed. During the piece's tenure in the bay, Grade continually tested the water quality; the waters in and around Seattle have been affected by pollution, which Grade called attention to with the work.

“It’s not about projecting an image, it’s about listening to where the image takes you.” – Daniel Kohn New York-based artist, Daniel Kohn has investigated genomics for nearly a decade in concert with the leading scientists of Genomic Research at the Broad Institute of MIT/Harvard. In those long-term studies, he developed an intuitive ‘language’ of gestural marks that, when deployed into his large-scale arrays, became veritable networks of symbols hinting at the underlying structures of the genomic code. Daniel Kohn's early work centered around a series depicting interiors of his family's house in the hamlet of "Changy", in the Berry region of France. Although representational in appearance, his work is investigative in nature, imbued with influences from both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. The artist describes his influences and fascination around Interiors as an attempt to personalize the symbolism of The Last Supper from a secular perspective: "This series centers on the table, at first with figures, and later without. The table represents the center around which the life of the house breathes. Someone will get up early, have coffee at the table, and leave. Someone else will come later and be joined by another. Perhaps they have a breakfast conversation. Upon leaving they leave the breakfast fixings on the table for others… In such a way the day winds on, from breakfast to lunch to dinner. The rhythm of the house is written at the table, and these paintings record these events…" Following Kohn’s 1998 participation in World Views, a residency in the World Trade Center, the artist’s focus shifted to abstracted landscapes that seek to explore the viewer's sense of pace. He has participated in numerous personal and collective exhibitions in the United States, Europe and Latin America. Additionally, he has an extensive list of site-specific works, including public and private commissions and partnerships with dance, music and th

"JaeHyo Lee is so dedicated an artisan that his hand comes close to being anonymous. It is not so much that he is absent from his art as it is that he projects a thoroughgoing craft that builds on itself. Allowing the materials to speak to him, he builds self-containing worlds that mysteriously communicate with their outer surroundings…Texture is deeply important to Le, who emphasizes the facade of the wood, crosscut and planned to reveal the character of the grain. The surface thus reveals the character of its making, becoming indicative of the creative process and holding interest by itself. The double character of Lee’s work – the expressiveness of its exterior and its profound connection with the wooden environment from which it has come – tells a story in which the human element of wood is more or less excluded. Sufficed with brooding otherness, Lee’s sculptures do not engage in dialogue so much as they simply exist." – Sculpture Magazine JaeHyo Lee has been rethinking and re-envisioning use of quotidian materials for several decades. Rather than dismantling each sculptural component and creating a hybrid aesthetic, Lee’s works emphasize his materials’ essential nature. The trajectory of his current work reveals his refined approach to nature - muse to his ideological and spatial concerns. Those who make a hard living may be the ones that make this world a beautiful place. I certainly do not have the power to make the world beautiful; I just hope to reveal the beauty in what is usually unseen, but not unnoticed. A bent nail or a piece of stone, when closely examined, reveals an inherent beauty. I wish to express that beauty in unique ways. -- JaeHyo Lee Lee’s seminal 20’ sculpture, LOTUS, comprised of wood that is burned, shaped, and hand carved, is currently on view in INFLUX, a public art exhibition in downtown Providence in collaboration with The Avenue Concept and RISD Museum, through 2016.

"Oliver Marsden has been ‘freeing up’ – learning from paint – enjoying its liquid possibilities. His latest body of work shows evidence of a further development in his use of paintings as a way of focusing thought. He is demanding more of the medium, himself and the audience." – Colin Glen, Art Critic "Oliver Marsden is an artist who seems to make sculpture of paintings or sculptural paintings." – Damien Hirst, Artist Oliver Marsden's paintings play with color theory and harmonic resonance of color to create dynamic optical illusions. The paintings appear improbably kinetic, as if they are vibrating, expanding and contracting on and off the canvas's surface. Marsden varies the saturation and shade of a singular color to create his psychedelic bull's eye-like forms. The subtle tonal gradations hover, suggest depth, and play with the viewer's eye, creating a mesmerizing, pulsating work. Marsden first developed his circular motif, the "Harmonics" series, in 2005, in response to his study of water. The oil paintings radiate out from a central point much like water responds to a dropped pebble. He takes his titled literally; the paintings are harmonics, radiating discs. To create the paintings Marsden attaches his canvas to a homemade electrically powered machine with a spinning board. The artist attaches the canvas to the rotating board and places his brush on the canvas's surface, beginning in the center and working his way outward. For a young artist, Marsden's accomplishments are already impressive. He graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 1997 and then worked as an assistant in Damien Hirst's studio. Marsden had his first solo exhibition in London at the prestigious Blue Gallery in 1998, at the age of 25. Since then he has regularly exhibited throughout the United Kingdom, along with exhibitions in Berlin, New York, Mexico City and most recently Koumi, Japan, where he completed a yearlong residency at the Horiuchi Studio.

Jonathan Prince
Biography : 1976- 1980 Columbia University 1980 - 1983 University of Southern California Lives and works in New Marlborough, MA Detailed Description :
Jonathan Prince has evolved an expansive conversation on contemporary sculpture, beginning with his successful Torn Steel series. The new Liquid State sculptures continue to test the physical boundaries of rigidity and fluidity of stainless steel -- a rigid material formed into wave-like undulations through extensive handwork and expert welding techniques. An array of patterned light and shadow is the unexpected gift of this highly reflective sculptural form. The artist has maintained his passion for sculpture throughout his distinguished and diverse professional career in the arts and sciences. Prince completed a doctorate at Columbia University and post-doctoral studies at the University of Southern California. Recent exhibitions include an installation of monumental steel works at the Sculpture Garden at 590 Madison Avenue, New York in 2011; permanent installation of his iconic work, LightBox, as part of the Julie and Edward J. Minskoff collection in New York City; the acquisition of Vestigial Block by the new Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum in Michigan; an exhibition of Torn Steel works at Christie’s Sculpture Garden at 535 Madison Avenue, New York in 2012; an installation at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza in New York City in 2012-2013; and, LIGHT/ DARK, an installation of black Cambrian granite sculpture at Hudson River Park, New York City in 2013.

"Each sculpture is a three-dimensional painting of shifting light, drawing all the colors of the environment, pulling down the sky, drawing up the earth and gathering everything in between. Quietly, gently stirring the light, each is alive: no beginning and no end." —George Sherwood George Sherwood explores aesthetic systems of space, time, and the dynamic relationships of objects in motion. The choreography of each piece is governed by a set of basic movements, facilitated by an arrangement of aerodynamic surfaces connected by rotational points. His work is usually made of stainless steel, which has reflective qualities that integrate the sculpture into its environment. Wind speed and direction, shades of light, time of day, precipitation, and seasonal color transform the sculpture. Sherwood’s initial interest in the art of movement began while attending the Hartfort Art school during the 1970’s. Drawn to and inspired by physical theater groups such as Mummenschanz, Pilobolus, and The Celebration Mime Theatre, he developed a theatrical performance consisting of large animated props, sculptures and masks that were physically manipulated by the artist. After earning an engineering degree from the University of Vermont in the 1980’s he turned his focus to Concept Development for LEGO Futura, the Research and Development arm of LEGO. Working with advanced technologies and as a liaison with the MIT Media Lab, he was part of a team that helped develop preliminary concepts leading to the creation of Mindstorms and Virtual LEGO construction software. It was during this time that he was introduced to the wind powered sculpture of George Rickey, a pioneer in kinetic sculpture. A growing passion to create his own sculpture led Sherwood to pursue this as a full time career. CYNTHIA-REEVES Projects, in partnership with the Hudson River Park Trust, showed “Waves and Particles”, six seminal sculptures by Sherwood along the Hudson River in New York City in 201

"My fascination with portraiture and the abstraction of color plays a dualistic role in my artistic expression and creation. The combination of the representation of human form, and the mercurial quality of emotions, translated by color, line and form, is what inspires the imaginative and abstract essence of the work." - Lionel Smit Lionel Smit is considered one of South Africa’s strongest artists, best known for his contemporary portraiture executed through monumental canvases and sculptures. Each of his works offers us an entry point into the variety and richness that lies beneath every face – a task he undertakes with great sensitivity. A self-taught artist born in the shadows of the Apartheid, Smit’s work centers heavily on identity, realized through the formation of disparate layering. His luscious, bold surfaces, upon closer inspection, expose his subject’s geneology through sporadic and translucent complexions. The viewer is left to reconcile these overlapping styles and emotive gestures, symbolically referencing the new generation in his native country. Lionel Smit’s process is adaptive, inventive, and physically engagied. He paints abstract canvases and lets them sit around the studio, ideas gestating, until he is ready to project photographs of the model on them, in a mode that recalls Andy Warhol’s aproach to portraiture. But Smit does not work with reproductive processes…, instead relying on his hand to transcribe form, and frequently reworking images multiple times, such that color and line merge, breaking down both…His bronzes made in the traditional lost wax process, are treated as fragmented surfaces subject to polychromatic surface experimentation inside and out. – Jason Rosenfeld, Ph.D., Distinguished Chair and Professor of Art History, Marymount Manhattan College, New York Lionel Smit was born in Pretoria, South Africa in 1982, he started exhibiting straight after art school at Pro Arte Alphen Park.
