    With the LIX Pen, you can doodle in 3D.

    This is so thrilling! Excited to see what comes out of this little piece of wonder. 

  2. David Maisel - History’s Shadow

    For over twenty-five years, Maisel’s photographic work has been wide-ranging in scope, and yet deeply focused on what he describes as a “long-term investigation into the aesthetics of entropy, and the dual processes of memory and excavation.”

    History’s Shadow represents an elegant continuation of these well-established themes, utilizing x-rays as source material to explore the intersection of scientific research and visual art. 

  3. Here’s a new ad hijacking project by Ji Lee called "Clownify Stickers." We love the fun and clever way she’s taking over the ads and bringing a little joy to the world.

  4. Damien Flood's work offers clean, stark, heroic strokes of movement against quietly complex backgrounds. Although exhibiting some abstract expressionist sensibilities, his work won't be caught, refuses to be catalogued, or boxed in, reduced to a mere thing. Each work exists on it's own. 

  5. Ashley Garrett’s work explores the uncanny qualities in common household objects. Growing up in a small rural town in Northeastern Pennsylvania, a slate mining town with its now silenced quarry holes and obsolete tools, her work is infused with a sense of still contemplation and memory. These paintings and drawings reflect that stillness and weight and objects take on a totemic-like power when pressured through Garrett’s imagination.

    Garrett comments in an interview with Phillip J. Mellen (Ahtcast): "What’s important in my work is having a sense of being grounded in the world, taking in the outside world… paying attention to light, sound, smell, touch, feeling, all the tactile stuff - [to be] bristling with attention." She continues, noting that this attention "is a huge resource of information.. always overflowing with content. I find that whenever I go that direction in terms of making art …even if it changes really dramatically from the source material… that it’s the most relatable and usually it has the most force."

  6. Born in Nagpur, India, in 1924, Vasudeo S. Gaitonde was an artist of singular stature, known to fellow artists and intellectuals, as well as to later generations of students and collectors, as a recluse, a genius, and a man of uncompromising artistic integrity of spirit and purpose.  

    Gaitonde’s work is considered non-representational and experimental and he is often referred to as India’s foremost abstractionist. However, prior to his death in 2001, the artist was quick to dismiss the term “abstract art” and preferred “non objective” to describe his subliminal imagery.

  7. Martin Kippenberger

    Selected pieces from The Raft of Medusa,  Skarstedt, New York

    Inspired by Theodore Géricault’s 1819 Le Radeau de la Méduse, Kippenberger’s series is demonstrative of his conflicted relationship with art historical precedents as well as his tendency to appropriate them.

    In The Raft of Medusa series Kippenberger depicts himself as the individual figures from Géricault’s masterpiece. He posed for, then, worked from photographs, taken by his wife, Elfie Semotan. 

  8. Stephen Wrightan American abstract painter based in Kentucky, is deeply moved by color. He doesn’t have a website or blog, but allows his work to speak for itself. Paintings for Corporations is an extensive ongoing series of paintings, following the same format, but with numerous subtle progressions of color, line, mood, and texture.

  9.  David Molander's surreal and expressionistic work depicts contemporary urban and social landscapes.  By manipulating the images through enlargement, cropping, dissection and zooming, Molander guides the visitor through a metropolitan journey, offering new perspectives of the urban environment.

  10. After earning an MFA at Pratt, unlike many new grads who set up studios in Brooklyn, Rebecca Morgan returned to central Pennsylvania to paint. Back in Appalachia, where drawing skill and porcelaine figurines are especially cherished, Morgan has incorporated these forms into resonant paintings that can hold their own both for a sophisticated New York art audience and for the less privileged patrons of, say, an Appalachian coffee shop.
