” How do you visually represent the nightmarish hallucinations you get in your sleep after accidentally eating old sweaty cheese or recalling a dream or a memory from your past only to realize it was actually from something you saw on TV? These are just two fleeting moments we choose to ignore or are just too damn embarrassed to admit. They are absurd anomalies– glitches in the system–that are a testament to our confusing lives. All of my work starts from similar confusing happenings that we may experience in one way or another. In my sculptures I embrace these experiences and translate them into tangible moments that manage to be even more absurd than that from which they came.” – Troy Coulterman

Nature inspired large scale abstract paintings by Seattle artist Quincy Anderson are richly textured canvases of acrylic paint, oil ink and silk tissue collage. The intricate surface embossment and reflective quality of glazing enhance layers of images that appear and disappear as the viewer moves around the paintings. Anderson’s use of complex color harmonies and reflective light evoke the lush marine environment and changing seasons of the northwest. Calligraphic lines, enigmatic symbols and images of flowing water give these elegant works a distinctly Asian sensibility, creating a beautiful balance between organic shapes that echo each other and a geometric rhythm that establishes the architecture of the composition. The sense of space and movement leads the viewer to a place of peaceful contemplation.

Jesùs Leguizamo is a young artist from Bogotà, Colombia, who in his depictions of people erases and blurs that which defines the human being – the face. Through expressive brushstrokes, he creates compelling and memorable paintings which explore human fragility and how this can be expressed in the medium of paint.

Stuart Dunkel is a versatile artist who paints New England landscapes, and whimsical still lifes of mice. His style can be whimiscial at times with a touch of surrealism. Other pieces have a much more classical or formal feel. Here, you see one of his whimical “doughnut” paintings from his mice series. When you look over the additional images, you will also see some impressionistic, tranquil landscapes with a more traditional feel. A talented painter, Mr. Dunkel is also a professional musician.

Artist David Byrne has created an installation called ‘Tight Spot’ that he blew up all by himself. It is a giant inflatable globe that barely fits under the High Line at 10th Avenue and 25th Street.

Wang Zhiyuan

Wang Zhiyuan work Thrown To The Wind encases materials which are thrown away carelessly in Zhiyuan’s hometown and other surroundings in China. The work challenged me, as the artist has used materials within this work which are usually regarded as rubbish. His tornado like structure highlights the impacts of rubbish disposal, as he links the careless nature of discarded items with a natural disaster which would impact thousands. The eleven metre structure is partnered with a video documentary which informs and ultimately overpowers the audience and makes a strong social comment on material and commercial waste.

Stefan Glerum’s style is like a melting pot of illustration heritage. While its subconscious familiarity has universal appeal, his work is also a study point for those with knowledge of graphic design history. His work is inspired by early 20th Century movements such as Art Deco, Bauhaus, Italian Futurism and Russian Constructivism, which he combines with popular themes, executed in a style reminiscent of the clear line.
