Overwrought with ivy, the facade of Ben’s Bushwick studio building is reminiscent of a decrepant New England Mansion . Perhaps it was a nod to his Massachusetts upbringing or maybe it was just the right space for the...
Trudy Benson - Navy Yard

Trudy Benson – Navy Yard

Walking into Trudy Benson‘s studio, I was struck by the tactile quality in her paintings and how the surface of the paint played a crucial role in reading and understanding her work. I immediately associated with the digital ‘space’ to her paintings which act almost like computer screens. The conflict between the flatness of the...

Ted Gahl - Connecticut

Ted Gahl – Connecticut

Traveling to rural Connecticut to see Ted Gahl’s studio, further and further out into the northeast landscape, I witness dilapidated factories scattered in between the hills of towns that have long been abandoned by thriving industry, and over time have gradually started to fade back into the surrounding nature. I realized through this emptiness what...
