Roxanna Vizcarra

lockerroom p "Roxanna Vizcarra, from Brooklyn, spent most of her early life believing people who drew things for a living were desperately poor and unhappy, or at least very misinformed. During adolescence, however, she became much less sensible and reversed this opinion all together. She has BFA in Illustration from Parsons School of Design, which largely involved drawing as many awesome and manly things as possible." roxanna 1

Philip Akkerman

p p ' Having declared that, "I paint myself, and so I paint the whole of mankind", one can speculate that Philip Akkerman (bn.1957), who has been painting only self-portraits since 1981, is doing more than just capturing his own image. Like the tradition of Dutch still-life painting where a universe is expressed within a few simple objects, Akkerman's continuous, and slightly theatrical, documentation of his self-image lies both within this tradition as well as the more conceptual one in which time's passage is marked. Based in Den Haag, he offers, in this simple approach, less answers but more questions about change, ageing, and how we see ourselves in our daily lives. A prolific painter, by following Old Master techniques, he is re-invigorating the past with a contemporary attitude. ' Read the interview here. (via Kultureflash) p

Kim Simonsson

p ' I made my first sculpture out of snow in the backyard of my childhood home! I realized then that I can capture the sensitivity of movement through my hands. Ever since I have thought of myself as a sculptor who makes figures by hand. Finding the perfect movement has become the essence in my works. I combine traditional ceramic art with popular cultural phenomenon in large ceramic sculptures. For me the unusual is interesting. Therefore I create my own strange world of characters that comment on everyday life and its weirdness. The subject matters are usually children, animals or hybrids. One important detail in my sculptures is the eyes are made out of glass; they give the figures a life like appearance. Authority in its many forms fascinate me and in my work I want to reverse the common beliefs by making the weak powerful. ' - Kim Simonsson (via Nancy Margolis Gallery) p p
