While the works are representational, they are much more confounding than traditional realism, and the artists utilize both close observation and the “anything is possible” fluidity one associates with dreaming.  

The spaces depicted combine aspects of inside and out, nature glimpsed…

These books were produced in a range of sizes and shapes, and often combine image and text in lively ways. Their physical aspects are essential to the reading/viewing experience.  

Artists associated with Conceptual Art, Minimalism, and Performance Art…

Some printmakers have spent their entire lives creating reproductions of the paintings or sculptures created by others. Many artists have been inspired by famed predecessors whose work influenced their own in a variety of ways. It was once common to commission portraits memorializing loved ones—or famous figures—following their deaths. This three-gallery…

Artist Sally Davies is well known for tightly composed and keenly observed images capturing the visual rhythms of Manhattan, but in her recent series, New Yorkers, she ventures behind closed doors to make portraits of long-time city dwellers inside their often tiny and idiosyncratic apartments. Some spaces are spare and elegant; others are jam-packed with curated collections ranging from art and books to refrigerator magnets and Pez…

Artist Statement

I make physical, sculptural works that are based off of architecture and found objects. I gather material that hovers between nameable and nameless, function and functionless. I am looking for color, shape, weight and confusion in its description. Objects and materials…

Photographer Todd Hido is best known for the evocative images he captured while driving through neighborhoods at night, photographing homes whose glowing windows suggest untold stories, but reveal little. For more than twenty-five years, he returned literally and metaphorically to memories and experiences of growing up in Kent, Ohio, finding romance in the mundane. More recently, prompted by global climatic change and the darkening political…

The renowned ceramic traditions of ancient China find fresh and dynamic expression in the hands of contemporary artist Li Hongwei. His sculpture—which takes the form of graceful hanging pieces as well as work on pedestals—combines crystalline glazes on porcelain with polished steel in ways that reanimate the past and evoke a new future for this art form.  

Li explores the “the interfacings between light and form, reflection and…
