Austin Lee - Long Island City

Austin Lee – Long Island City

Austin Lee was in the process of getting ready for his two solo shows, “Pretty Pictures” at UTA Artist Space in LA and “Light Paintings” at BANK in Shanghai when we met up with him in his Long Island City studio. We explored topics ranging from living life through screens, his process of translating and...
Alicia Gibson - Bushwick

Alicia Gibson – Bushwick

Alicia Gibson’s paintings take you back to high school where the margins of your notebook pages are lined with crushes and doodles of hearts and peace signs. Only these are made up of layers of built up paint, found music sheets, key chains and fake flowers with loaded sayings like “MARRY ME” and “DECADES OF...
Jason Mones

Jason Mones

Jason Mones’ paintings are done in a humorous self-deprecating manner with masculine imagery like shields, beer, and meat as well as castration. His current body of work reflects on the current political landscape in the United States conveyed through loose narratives with thick layers of paint. We were able to visit Jason Mones just as...
Sarah Faux - Ridgewood

Sarah Faux – Ridgewood

We visited Sarah Faux just as she was getting ready for her solo show at Stems Gallery in Brussels. Her studio, in the massive 17-17 Troutman building, we talked about her exploration in texture and color in her work and the analogous relationship between the body and paint. In addition to her solo show, Sarah...
Josh Sperling - Sunset Park

Josh Sperling – Sunset Park

We met with Josh Sperling in his Industry City studio in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. To get to his space, we passed through a furniture studio and walked into his meticulously organized studio reflecting the precision in his work. Each piece is carefully planned out to the wooden structures underneath to how he stretches the canvas...
Morgan Blair - Ridgewood

Morgan Blair – Ridgewood

Morgan Blair’s live/work studio is located in a converted two-story garage in Ridgewood, Queens. The neighborhood is quiet and the building is largely inconspicuous despite her recent foray into murals. We talked about her process where texture and masking dominate and where she sources her imagery from (Youtube tutorials, Seinfeld and Cheetos to name a...
Robin Kang - Ridgewood

Robin Kang – Ridgewood

In conjunction with curator and artist, Steve Mykietyn of Orgy Park, we visited Robin Kang‘s spacious studio located in Ridgewood, Queens. Focusing on weaving, fibers, and collage, Robin Kang utilizes these various techniques to transport the viewer to a place where the abstract and real meet with all of its plans and imperfections. Enlisting techniques...
Jennifer Lee - Bushwick

Jennifer Lee – Bushwick

Like many New York transplants, Jennifer Lee has figured out how to make a space work for all her needs. In her 2 bedroom apartment, she’s managed to turn it into a live space, studio space, and gallery space with her gallery window, Sister. Sister is Jennifer’s latest curatorial project where she displays fellow artists’...
Cortney Andrews - Bushwick

Cortney Andrews – Bushwick

Cortney Andrews‘s performance videos are entrancing though slightly difficult to watch as the viewer is made very aware of his or her own body. Cortney acts as Director in her latest pieces where she collaborates with friends and dancers to create these performances where the human body is put at a strain. The locations range...
Peter Schenck - Gowanus

Peter Schenck – Gowanus

Peter Schenck’s studio is located inside one of the old factory buildings right next to the Gowanus canal. Inside his studio, brightly colored pencil sketches and small pizza box-sized paintings line the walls. We talked about paint handling, the process of building up each of the surfaces, self-deprecating humor and of course, pizza. Peter is...
Mike Schreiber GCA

Mike Schreiber GCA

Mike Schreiber’s pieces look deceivingly light and airy hanging up on the wall with many of the pieces covered with perforations and textured paint. Upon closer inspection, we found that they were actually made of thick slabs of quartz which he would find scattered around on the street, for free, as if finding slabs of...
Austin Eddy - Greenpoint

Austin Eddy – Greenpoint

Walking into Austin Eddy’s studio, you get the impression that he is constantly producing. There are stacks and stacks of drawings, piles of in progress and completed paintings on canvas and sculptures lying neatly in piles in all areas of his small studio space. Even though his studio is a relatively new one since his...
