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...
Michael Assiff's Bali Ha'i @ Culture Room

Michael Assiff’s Bali Ha’i @ Culture Room

We met with Michael Assiff to talk about Bali Ha’i, his current solo show now up at the Culture Room. Green monochrome paintings fill the room alongside small prop items which seem casually placed within the space. Four large paintings face each other while a series of extinct animal pattern paintings are hung stacked vertically...
Cynthia Talmadge - Dumbo

Cynthia Talmadge – Dumbo

When Cynthia Talmadge is not painting, she’s translating her concepts into full scale sets or designing clothes. In the heart of Dumbo where her studio is located, we talked about navigating through her different modes of working from sand paintings to building a fake rehab center room. Her work was featured at Petrella’s Imports and...

Korakrit Arunanondchai - Bushwick

Korakrit Arunanondchai – Bushwick

It seems as if Korakrit Arunanondchai‘s name is popping up everywhere. Collaborating with musicians and artists on videos and performances while simultaneously preparing for his show at CLEARING in both Brooklyn and Brussels, Korakrit Arunanondchai is not slowing down anytime soon. At the time of our visit, Korakrit’s studio was filled with denim fire paintings...
Ben Wolf Noam - Bushwick

Ben Wolf Noam – Bushwick

Ben Wolf Noam, is an artist who splits his time between studios in New York and LA. 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...
Bradford Kessler - Bushwick

Bradford Kessler – Bushwick

During our conversation, we gathered around his computer screen to view his extensive body of work. Bradford Kessler is currently in his second year...
