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’s live/work studio is located in a converted two-story garage in Ridgewood, Queens.

In conjunction with curator and artist, Steve Mykietyn of Orgy Park, we visited Robin Kang‘s spacious studio located in Ridgewood, Queens.

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‘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...
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...
Alexandra Phillips - Bushwick

Alexandra Phillips – Bushwick

Alexandra Phillips’ work reexamines disregarded every day objects. She’s able to repurpose old toys, discarded signs, and materials that are specific to her surroundings to give them a sense of materiality and to create a platform to examine the excesses in every day. She defines her role as a “cultural worker.” During our many conversations,...

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...

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...

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...
