I love these simple and poignant drawings by Cameron Stott. I just wish there were more of them!
Timothy Gaewsky’s installations and assemblages are full of pop sensibilities and bold colors.
Michael Eudy has some juicy oil paintings on site. My favorites have to be his figurative and still life works (pictured above and below).
Londoner Tyler Vipond’s work plays mostly with space and depth created out of formerly 2D surfaces. Bridging the space between sculpture and painting, his work leaves you with a feeling of tension and intricacy while still feeling almost effortless. I particularly love his series “A Collapse” whose pieces are almost reminiscent of deconstructed origami.
Meet Canadian artist Alice Gibney. Her work has a hauntingly beautiful presence, layering intimate charcoal lines on large scale paper panels. Her recent series are filled with imagery depicting self vs nature and human manifestation of grief. She’s currently spending some time in Berlin, hopefully gathering up loads of inspiration for her next series of work when she returns to NYC to finish her MFA at Parsons.
Tessa Farmer’s miniscule sculptures reinvigorate a belief in fairies: not the sweet Tinkerbell image in popular conscience, but a biological, entomological, macabre species translating pastoral fable into nightmarish lore. Constructed from bits of organic material, such as roots, leaves, and dead insects, each of Tessa’s figures stand barely 1 cm tall, their painstakingly intricate detail visible only through a magnifying glass.
Hovering with rarefied, jewel-like beauty, Tessa’s tiny spectacles resound with a theurgist exotica: their specimen forms borrow from Victorian occultism to evolve as something alien and futuristic. Playing out apocalyptic narratives of a microscopic underworld, Tessa’s manikin wonders rule with baneful fervour: harnessing mayflies, battling honey bees, attacking spindly spiders. Presented as wee preternatural discoveries, Tessa’s sculptures conjure a superstitious premise, dismantling the mythos of fantasia with evidence of something much more gothic, sinister, and bewitching.”
