My slow compact camera just wasn’t fast enough to keep up with my son, or so said the salesman who talked me into spending several hundred dollars more than I had initially intended. I drove home from the store with buyer’s remorse, wondering why I had let myself be suckered into spending so much money. When I looked through my new camera’s viewfinder for the first time, however, I was reminded of my love of photography that I had long ago forgotten. I am a shy and introverted person by nature but have a strong desire to connect with people. Photography allows me a safe place to do that. These photographs are a record of shared moments of intimacy and are, as such, reflections of both myself and my subjects." - Erika Huffman  photo tumblr_n4o657t4Z31qg572jo1_500_zps8d4c5ca4.jpg

Adam Lupton

 photo 42_escapeweb_zps695fd42a.jpg  photo 42_butterflyeffect1web_zps4ec167fc.jpg Canadian artist Adam Lupton's gaze explores psychological and sociological struggles in modern society. Painting in oil, blurring lines between realism and expressionism helps Lupton probe the internal and external dialogue faced in his multi-directional narratives. His recent work pits moments of choice against the visualization of their outcomes: temporal planes coexisting on a singular surface. With the notion of quantum mechanics having every possible outcome to a situation realized in splintered universes, he paints figures with varied levels of connection to reality. To question our process of free will as well as our concepts of space, time, fate, and self; if every decision comes true in one parallel life or another, are we as free as we think we are? Lupton's design work balances on the idea of effective communication and purposeful aesthetics, and that from the ground up everything should be started with a solid concept. Lupton's processes lean heavily towards idea generation and conceptualization: things start out through the hand, ideas converge and diverge, and the outcome creates an experience for the user: a connection. His diverse background gives him the ability to straddle and draw upon the two slightly neurotic worlds of visual art and design.  photo 42_thelonesomecrowdedmindohtheseussmall_zps7ca60866.jpg

Graduated from University of Dalian in 2008, Minghao works predominantly in the medium of painting but also engravings and installations. Gerard Richter has been the greatest influence. This new series of paintings is a reflection of the artist pondering on the properties of human, life and death in a time characterized by impatience, fragments, nihility, and a duality of highly developed civilization and disorder. Minghao Dong has had solo exhibitions in Dalian at Tianyi Gallery, and has participated several group exhibitions in China. He lives and works in Paris since 2009.  photo tumblr_n7s3tfqxtP1qdhfhho3_r1_500_zps1afa3810.jpg

In bringing to life a flat surface, I strive to create a puzzle between what is real and what is illusion, what is painted and what is manipulated, turning paint to flesh, paper to sculpture. The figures surrounding the paper folds represent the old habits we have from our parents, experiences, traumas….. It is our duty to brake these patterns and become ourselves." - Marcelo Daldoce  photo Marcelo-Daldoce-tomorrow-Ill-change_zps09d5a3aa.jpg  photo Sweet-Nothing_zps6d787494.jpg
