ANNA_KUNZ04

Anna traverses the span of her paintings by using a thick wooden plank, the tool serving as both a unit of measurement and a stage on which to produce her architecturally-scaled works. By organizing specific colors she creates a continuum that moves from canvas to space, a choreography that implicates any work she chooses to place in its proximity. In addition to her large works on canvas, Anna also creates site-specific paintings that formalize light, ephemeral works that change with the shifting sun.

ZACH_CAHILL05

Zachary’s studio is one of many sites that has housed the USSA, a series started in 2009 that imagines our society as controlled by a Soviet regime. Through several interrelated projects he has examined the nation’s infrastructure, creating a orphanage, wellness center, and most recently a state church titled the Assembly. Inspired by Marvel comics, Zachary has formed a tetrad of alien gods that serve as the base of the religion, reimagining the letters U, S, S, A as a message from another planet rather than the title of a communist public.

NAZAFARIN_LOTFI13

Nazafarin has always been interested in the horizon and what lays just beyond its perceived edge. After exploring the subject conceptually with painting, she has moved her interest to sculpture, exploring horizon and landscape physically through her work with paper maché molds. Her hollow works reveal deep interiors that she imagines could be lived in and used, rather than just serve as objects to be observed. Nazafarin develops these interiors just as much as the sculptures’ exterior surfaces, using the inner cavity to think about both the inner body and core of the earth.

Dan Miller’s Para-Activa

Dan has never had a traditional view of an exhibition, or a studio for that matter. For the last several years he has collaborated with Thomas Kong, an artist whose studio is completely integrated into his daily business practice. Inspired by this method of working, Dan explores the notion of labor in his own practice by participating in useful tasks at the site of exhibitions, recently testing lightbulbs and painting walls rather than making his own aesthetic choice within a space. Together with Thomas, Dan founded The Back Room, an anti-curatorial project that promotes further collaboration at the site of Thomas’s work.
