Matthew Bourbon

1 09 2015

“I’m intrigued by Matthew Bourbon’s square, half-representational, half-abstract paintings. Like David Hockney, Bourbon is adept at blending two modes of representation in one image. In The Words We Agreed Upon and A Bucketful of Lies, figures mutate into irregularly shaped fields of geometric swatches of color. His interiors and figures suggest thinking and a kind of intellectual cosmopolitanism that seems precious today. (I keep reading his abstract elements as thought bubbles emanating from figures.) I also love the mise-en-abîme aspect of A Bucketful… and the way it recapitulates its subject, a group of abstract paintings, by becoming the thing it depicts.”

Cara Stricker

1 09 2015

My name is Cara Stricker and I am an artist working in direction, photography and music. I was born in Australia but currently live in Los Angeles, California.

Art to me is about expression of singular vision, through whichever means. My first artistic memory was painting with my mum when I was a little spec.

Mia Brownell

1 09 2015

The question that haunts Mia Brownell’s still lives of fruit–usually many intertwined vines of ripe grapes, from which larger fruit, usually pears or plums or both, dangle–is whether they’re based on observation of nature or observation of art. Brownell describes visiting a supermarket and being “transported to a unique place without seasons”–I think “transported” has to be understood in both senses of the term–when she views the Eden of organic life on the fruit counters.

Pigs

You can hear their knife like squeals in the swamp, sounding like one was already being digested.
