Thoughts and interactions fill the day, but what is really going on here? I am inspired by a space just below the surface, where the mind starts to wander. Creating figure sculpture gives me a chance to communicate the subtleties of being human. The need for playfulness reoccurs often and unexpectedly. I want my work to draw the viewer in with a sense of the familiar, only to be left with endless possibilities.My recent series, From Inside the Birdhouse, explores a relationship between humans and animals, coexisting and merging as outer expressions of the self. Small ceramic figures wearing masks take on the personas of animals and assume their mannerisms. I think of these as masks that conceal the face the world sees, and reveals the persons true state of mind. On a doll-like scale these pieces become miniature worlds where one could imagine creating their own stories." - Holly Curcio  photo unnamed-3_zpskzdrrtct.jpg  photo unnamed_zpsq9s2htcw.jpg

Zemer Peled

 photo New_Years_Best_Dreams_5_zps7b5nsff7.jpg new_years_best_dreams_4  photo New_Years_Best_Dreams_8_zpsst8jfyok.jpg new_years_best_dreams_3 Peled was born and raised in a Kibbutz in the northern part of Israel. After completing a BA (Hons) at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem she graduated with an MA (Hons) from the Royal College of Art. In recent years her work has been featured nationally and internationally in museums and galleries including Sotheby’s and Saatchi Gallery-London, Eretz Israel Museum-Tel Aviv and the Orangerie du Senate, Paris among others. Zemer Peled’s work examines the beauty and brutality of the natural world. Her sculptural language is formed by her surrounding landscapes and nature, engaging with themes of nature and memories, identity and place. Her works are formed of thousand of ceramic shards constructed into large-scale/small-scale sculptures and installations.  photo Flowered_Lions_6_zpsppfnxp2l.jpg  photo Flowered_Lions_1_zpszpf8tbpe.jpg  photo Flowered_Lions_5_zps341bqdhs.jpg

Hopper is the genre defining painter of the urban landscape whose iconic oeuvre casts a long shadow over all artists inspired by the modern city. In the exhibition Hopper’s Shadow I confront his legacy by meticulously recreating in miniature his historic paintings and encapsulating them in a contemporary urban landscape. Each of Hopper’s anachronistic visions of the city are subsumed by the contemporary architecture with which I use to frame them. Through working with Hopper’s imagery I’ve entered into a dialogue with my acknowledged predecessor and challenged myself to continue to connect the urban landscape with a contemporary audience." - Peter Harris  photo unnamed-3_zpsiaqoua4n.jpg  photo unnamed-1_zpsiwzfrfka.jpg  photo unnamed-2_zpswyegcpxz.jpg

Let me introduce you to my creative universe composed as a "cabinet of curiosities" populated by animals dressed and proudly posing in a setting built for them. Far from the stereotype of hunting trophy, my bestiary speaks of the character, the temperament of the beast. Severe in uniform as the lion, gentle and docile sheep in collar renaissance, females are charmers and male dandies, proud and majestic as the fowl in the middle of the farmyard." - Philippe Tyberghien  photo Screen Shot 2016-09-27 at 6.47.20 PM_zpscq5y94x8.png  photo Screen Shot 2016-09-27 at 6.46.54 PM_zps8le1gbyz.png

Each character, pattern and energy reflects states of consciousness that are revealed in the creative act, a form of both improvisation and organization wherein the uncensored is working in concert with momentary, yet specific compositional organizations. It is my intention that the work will be a place of meeting between memory, dream and fantasy, and concretized into meaningful visual terms." - Mi Ju  photo unnamed-2_zps3njzezmv.jpg  photo unnamed-5_zpscyq5khqg.jpg  photo unnamed-4_zpsih30mydk.jpg

 photo unnamed-2_zpsmsytog4s.jpg  photo unnamed-3_zps7s43epjx.jpg " This work comes from the kind of ultra male spaces that I have been photographing for years. Hardware stores, garages, second-hand electronics stores, the ubiquitous junk drawer. These places are especially fertile ground. The primary decision in making these compositions is determining the object’s ideal view. Which way should these objects point themselves? Should it be looked at from the front? From behind? In what direction should its extremities protrude? Does it matter which is the front or which is the back? These decisions allow the objects to be fully described, and to establish interesting resemblances and associations. What color could complicate things? What kind of textures and surfaces could be in conversation with the subject? I consider what other objects I have, and how their interactions can create evocative combinations. How can I use space and light? These decisions emphasize and confuse the thing’s function and scale. The work is nourishing and debauched. The photographs transform these unexpected objects, their original use is obscured. They’re new. These things are freed from the confines of their original purpose and interpretation." - Ken Lavey  photo unnamed-1_zpstavyg9sz.jpg  photo unnamed_zpstykhlnw9.jpg
