Graphite on Bristol
12 x 9 inches (image 4 x 4 inches)
Llives and works in Los Angeles, California. Adams uses a traditionally
conservative format of twelve-inch square oil-on-linen that lends
his work an air of old-world realism, but the subject matter is
highly provocative, giving the work an edgy quality. The graphite
drawings are interpretations of images taken from photographs that
have been submitted by individuals to swinger magazines.
He juxtaposes the "high" and "low" with beautifully
rendered landscapes and cloudscapes to further amplify the contradictions
of the cultural life of southern California today. The narrative
components are further explored with site-specific titles such as
Big Sur and The Valley. Adams received his BFA and MFA from Boston
University and has also studied with Parsons School of Design in
Paris. He is the recipient of two Massachusetts Artist Fellowships.
Field 28 (2000)
Oil on Panel
48" x 36"
Lives and works in New York City. Before studying art, Bigelow
was a Comparative Religion student at Harvard. Her scholarly exploration
of spirituality continues in her works today, with landscapes
that convey a simple sense of reverence. Bigelow creates her surface
quality by applying viscous gesso to the untreated panel in a
criss-crossing series of strokes. The oil paint that she later
layers over the gesso, seeps and melts into every groove of the
brushed surface, creating a diaphanous effect.
Bigelow's paintings are infused with a Japanese sensibility of
perspective and composition. The use of silhouette derives from
an interest in shoji, paper screens that filter light and reveal
shadow. After Harvard, Bigelow went on to get her MFA at the Maryland
Institute College of Art. She has received many awards including
residencies at Yaddo, The MacDowell Colony, The Virginia Center
for the Creative Arts, and the Millay Colony for the Arts. She
has also received a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Award. The works
on view at Mulry Fine Art are part of her Field series.
15" x 14 1/2"
Was born and raised on a farm in Germany. He currently lives and
works in New York City. Anna Sui writes that Busse, a former fashion
photographer, "draws from his background and experience in
capturing beauty and images with the camera. Mr. Busse steps from
behind the lens to a bold position as the model. The artist essentially
becomes the artwork by becoming a human canvas.
He makes quite innovative use of the parts of a flower and creates
the image against the backdrop of his own body." Sarah Brown
adds, "What is most moving, most beautiful about this work
is its ability to exist in such a delicate balance--fragile, fleeting,
yet rendered inherently permanent by its medium. Perhaps that's
the real meaning of beauty--finding the poetry in something so temporary,
so precious, something, that as Busse notes, 'can break at any moment.'"
Limestone with sumi ink
17 x 9 x 4 inches
Lives and works in New York City. Castro graduated with
a BA in Architecture and an MA in Restoration and Conservation
of Monuments from the Central University of Venezuela. His contemporary
sculpture reflects an evolution of this early interest in preservation
Castro uses found objects such as limestone and bluestone from
abandoned buildings and construction sites in New York City as
his raw material. He then hones and shapes these urban artifacts
to a scale that matches the cup of a human hand. Perfect spheres,
pure and evocative, speak to the most basic human ideals of perfection,
continuity, and completion. Castro is the recipient of numerous
citations, including residencies at Yaddo and The MacDowell Colony.
Two Couples, Studio 54,
NYC, Halloween (1979)
photograph Edition 3/20
16" x 20"
Llives and works in New York City and Paris, yet as Fritz Gruber
says, "She seems to be everywhere at the same time." For
decades, Lowit's photography has documented our society's fascination
with celebrity culture.
From Studio 54 to the catwalks of Paris, from doyennes to dwarves,
Lowit captures the obscure and the over-exposed. Her work has a
spontaneous, yet timeless quality.
Fritz Gruber sums it up best: "Whereas the aggressiveness of
the paparazzi is justly being hated, Roxanne's gentle, inconspicuous
approach seems to be loved, even longed for."
Traveler XIX (2005)
Acrylic on Canvas
17" x 17"
Lives and works in Los Angeles. Wilson is an abstract painter who
strives to smooth away all traces of gesture, leaving clean fields
of rectangular color. As art critic Kenneth Baker notes, "What
keeps Wilson's work from turning brittle are subtle adjustments
of measure, finish, scale, and internal light, that are the painting's
Wilson holds a BA from the University of California, Davis, and
an MFA from Claremont Graduate School. Wilson's work was recently
purchased for inclusion in the permanent collection of the Hirshhorn
Museum and Sculpture Garden, the Smithsonian Institution's Museum
of International Modern and Contemporary Art.
