Hiromi Tango

 

Using a rainbow of colorful textiles, Japanese-American artist Hiromi Tango creates sculptures and installations that she then interacts with. Her works are often collaborative, performative, and site-specific as a direct reaction to today’s virtual communication style. In recent years, Hiromi’s work has become more and more focused on neuroscientific concepts, posing questions around neuroplasticity, empathy, and epigenetics in her quest to effect healing and well-being through arts.

Derrick Velasquez

 

I’m crazy about the work of Derrick Velasquez! Layers upon layers upon layers of interest.

My most recent work deals with forces projected onto manufactured and industrially engineered materials. Some of these forces are natural, such as an accumulated weight created by gravity, and some are more forced like tension applied by testing an object’s flexibility to its breaking point. The demands put on these materials reveal and obscure structures of both their intended consumer use and the qualities of the material itself.  By the use of marine vinyl, masonite, handmade half-scale 2X4s, plywood, and found objects, I aim to question the way we physically interact with the tangible and manufactured structures of everyday life. Through an investigative manipulation that observes and skews nominal measurements, my work teases out our psychological relation to the dimensions and conditions given by such materials.

Chris Wood

 

Chris Wood describes her profession as light artist, which is pretty badass. Using both high and low tech optical materials to create her simple kinetic sculptures, Wood is able to harness light. She often uses a material invented by NASA, dichroic is a colorless material that filters and reflects wavelengths of light, creating a huge variety of rainbow shadows and projections in the process.

Uta Barth

 

Uta Barth has a wide breadth of work that is ever-evolving with influences of painting, sculpture, photography, and installation. Engagement and perception play big roles in her work, exploring the way the human eye might view something versus the camera, and Barth’s latest two projects – In the Light and Shadow of Morandi and Untitled 2017 – press her forward on that journey. In the first she pays homage to Morandi’s love of repetition, light, and form, while in the second Barth’s focus is on attention to detail in photography.

Louise McRae

 

New Zealand’s Louise McRae‘s sculptural wall art uses discarded building materials that she paints and splits into smaller shards. Each piece ends up feeling as though it’s organically found its place among the hundreds of others.

Ry Rocklen / Wardrobe

 

If my clothes looked this good when folded, well, they definitely wouldn’t sit in the laundry basket waiting for as long as they do. Los Angeles-based artist Ry Rocklen‘s Wardrobe is made entirely out of porcelain, assuring only intended wrinkles.

Zemer Peled

 

Landscapes, nature, memories, identity, and place. All influence the large- and small-scale ceramic shard sculptures and installations created by Zemer Peled. Is it just me or are you dying to hold one in your hands, too?
