The Art and Artifice of Geodes: In the Studio with Elyse Graham

At once lifelike and ethereal, organic and otherworldly, Elyse Graham’s geodes are captivating and mysterious.  Simply put, they tell a story.  But that story is not at all simplistic in style, process, or production.

Paper Trail: In the Studio with Steven Riddle

Steven Riddle’s paper collages are additive. They’re layers and layers of material that slope past their underlying surfaces in gentle relief. They’re also subtractive, just as much the result of recursively eliminating elements. And they’re practically alive. A single composition is often an amalgamation of pieces produced more recently mixed with others from two years prior. They’re like living, breathing documents of the artist’s extended studio history, all of it cumulatively recorded in the bins of scrap paper in his studio -- blank paper that’s been air brushed, silkscreened, brushed over with gouache, monotyped , and that’s just for starters.

The Place Between the Layers: Ben Waterman’s Midnight Lullaby

Ben Watermans paintings invite extended meditation on seemingly banal objects: a red mosquito net, a brown piano, a vacant fireplace.  These highly specific objects float in contrast to their surroundings--disorientingly unidentifiable places painted with inarticulate brushstrokes. Given the Seattle artist’s pronounced affinity for travel to new places, these surreal landscapes prompt questions on the complicated role of inspiration within constructed visual images.

Gavin Bunner’s Gardens (and Hillsides) of Earthly Delights

Satirical. Sexual? Sensical and non… Gavin Bunner’s (NAP #65 & #97) paintings are flat out funny, farcical, and intelligent.  Growing out of his earlier experimentation with watercolors and humorous juxtapositions, Bunner began creating larger compositions in which he inundates the viewer and field with likely and unlikely pairings from pop-culture and the larger media oversoul: Google. - Ellen C.

Gallerist at Home: Catlin Moore

Catlin Moore, the Director of the contemporary Mark Moore Gallery and co-Director of 5790projects, is stylish, youthful and a definite force to be reckoned with.  Though she cites her collection as being “in its infancy” (especially compared to her father gallery-owner and namesake Mark Moore), her art and artifice at home make me drool.  An established arts writer and LA gallerist, Catlin has created a respite at home, reflecting a space where contemporary art browses with library-esque bookshelves, curiosity cabinets, and a tangible life of its own.

Not For Sale: Angela Dufresne

Always, there is a gap between new ideas and public acceptance.  Art history is rife with iconic figures and work which initially met with decades of rejection, not to mention a tendency toward posthumous adoration.  It's no leap to suppose that, whether due to market forces, critical trends, or perceived level of completion, an important chunk of today's work remains in artists' studios.  As part of a new interview series "Not For Sale," (inspired by the PS1 show of that title), I ask artists to discuss pieces which are unlikely to appear in a gallery.
