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...
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’...
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...
Shara Hughes - Greenpoint

Shara Hughes – Greenpoint

We had been following Shara Hughes’ work for quite some time but had never seen her paintings in person nor met the artist herself. It was by chance that we ventured out for Greenpoint Open Studios and walked into her shared studio space where we instantly recognized her work. During our studio visit, we talked...
Cooper Holoweski - Bushwick

Cooper Holoweski – Bushwick

Inside Cooper Holoweski‘s studio, there are multiple pieces in progress and it seems as though he has his hand in almost every type of medium including music, film and painting. Cooper’s paintings rest on the line between the digital and physical constructions. From first glance, the domestic imagery looks pretty straightforward but after a second...
Stephen Truax - Bushwick

Stephen Truax – Bushwick

Stephen Truax invited us into his expansive shared studio space where we got the opportunity to get a better understanding of his process. Truax’s small intimate works were lined up on the wall, drawing us in to look closer at his “beautiful surfaces”. At first glance, the marks appear effortless like happy accidents and in...
Zuriel Waters @ GCA

Zuriel Waters @ GCA

Zuriel Waters’s self portraits are earnest investigations in painting disguised in flamboyant sexual figures. His paintings border on the grotesque and yet they attract the viewer to look beyond the man boobs and the penetrating hand gestures, to the marks and the history behind each brushstroke. We first met Zuriel Waters at RISD where he...
Michael Dotson - Bushwick

Michael Dotson – Bushwick

We met with Michael Dotson in his Bushwick live/work space. We climbed up to where his bedroom/studio was located in his makeshift 2nd floor of his apartment. The space was crammed but laid out efficiently for a maximum amount of workspace. Michael’s paintings touch on a diverse array of subjects ranging from alien abduction to...
Jules de Balincourt - Bushwick

Jules de Balincourt – Bushwick

We arrived in front of Jules de Balincourt‘s studio, a 2-story building formerly the site of Starr Space in the heart of Bushwick. The studio expands the entire first floor of the building and is a large open space with lots of natural light streaming in from the skylight above. There’s a wooden stage built...
