” Two concerns have engaged me throughout my career: color and geometric order. The grid is the underpinning of these concerns. Within its rigor I organize repeated elements—usually a stripe or square—painting them with a succulent brush that is at odds with the reductivism of the composition. I have long referred to my work as lush minimalism, a term that’s as tongue in cheek as it is true.” – Joanne Mattera

” I sometimes think of my craft the same way I see my life to come and my life gone thus far. A Dagwood sandwich not shy of a vast variety of adventurous condiment lashings. To stop the topple of my ‘Life sandwich’ I was endowed with the wooden skewer of creativity. To hold the bend in my ‘Sandwich of Art’ I need to know that the wooden skewer of life is rammed in good and tight.” – Katrina Rhodes

Christopher Payne specializes in the documentation of America’s vanishing architecture and industrial landscape. Trained as an architect, he is fascinated by design, assembly, and the built form. His first book, New York’s Forgotten Substations: The Power Behind the Subway (Princeton Architectural Press, 2002), offered dramatic, rare views of the behemoth machines that are hidden behind modest facades in New York City. His second book, Asylum: Inside the Closed World of State Mental Hospitals (MIT Press, 2009), which includes an essay by the renowned neurologist Oliver Sacks, was the result of a seven-year survey of America’s vast and largely shuttered state mental institutions. Payne’s new book, North Brother Island: The Last Unknown Place in New York City (Fordham University Press, 2014), explores an uninhabited island of ruins in the East River. Payne’s photographs invoke the former grandeur of the site over different seasons, capturing hints of buried streets and infrastructure now reclaimed by nature, while also providing a unique glimpse into a city’s future without people.

” We are two photographers: Isabelle Chapuis combine art and fashion, Alexis Pichot is a light painter artist. After the meeting of our two worlds, this series entitled ‘Blossom’ evokes a journey of fantasy; for it we set off colored smoke bombs in emotionally-charged backdrops found throughout our travels. The project originates from our participation in the Speak Focus photographic competition themed, ‘Paris, I love you’. We chose to depict love by using a red smoke bomb in the streets of Paris, and were awarded second prize. From that day on, we continue to perform as we move onwards. We read in the smoke, as we guess in the clouds, forms of the imagination; ghostly presence that has been or will be: everyone is free to see what they like.” – Isabelle & Alexis
