    Kendra Heisler is a Brooklyn bred photographer who specializes in narrative and conceptual imagery.  Her current series, Shot on a Scandal, is based on Americana taboos and saucy societal secrets.  Each image is carefully staged and provokes a dialogue between the viewer and the photographer, the viewer and the character, or the viewer and his or herself.  Heisler illuminates darkness often glossed over, touching upon the patriarchal practices of our country's past, the dichotomy of infidelity a[...]

    Station 16 is Montreal’s haven for urban art.   Adam, Carlo and Emily are the brains behind the operation, and for the third year in a row they will bring original works by Canadian street & graffiti artists to Fountain Fair.  You can also expect a new collection of silkscreen prints by killer international artists.  If you're looking to get real, Station 16 is the place to go.  Or if you're dying to chat with some nice Canadian hotties.  OR BOTH.

    Arch Enemy Arts is Philadelphia’s freshest venue dedicated to lowbrow, pop surrealism, realism, decorative, figurative, urban, macabre and narrative style art in a wide range of mediums.  You like saucy ladies up to something mysterious in a technicolor forest?  You wish every painting had a Bosch-y creature erupting from another Boschy-y creature?  You like being creeped out, but only just the right amount?  Arch Enemy is your go to.  The artists they work with are incredibly diverse in their[...]

    February 28th, 2014

    The unwavering precision draws you in.  Little twisting nobules wag their fingers, seeming at once alien and disarmingly human.  Simplistic in color, the complexity of these works relies on repetition, relentless obsession and meticulous attention to detail.  There is strength in the ambiguity.  In her own words, Inyoung Seoung aims to represent “unconscious desire” - Freud, eat your heart out. Negative space plays a large role in her compositions, as seen here in the image of two peaks r[...]

    Gentleman’s Game is Brandon Friend and Jason Douglas Griffin.  Though they have similar sensibilities, each is a lauded artist in his own right with stylistic particularities and distinct processes.  Their oh-so-suave shared canvasses explore themes such as pop culture, myth, and competition. Friend and Griffin have shared a studio space for over five years, but first met in the year 2000 at The University of Maryland Art Honors Program.  They premiered their collaborations in 2011, and have be[...]

    February 19th, 2014

    Jason Tudor is an artist based out of Brooklyn, NY, focused on drawing, printmaking and textile design. Tudor begins each piece with freeform intuitive drawings, echoing patterns found in the natural world to create a rhythmic composition of lines, shapes, and motifs. Rather than working towards a predetermined composition, he lets the drawing grow organically. He then digitalizes the images and reinterprets the patterns into elaborate new constructions by combining, interlacing, mirrori[...]

    Dodson’s art celebrates the relationship between humans and the animal kingdom.  Replete with mythological imagery and age-old iconography, her sculptures evoke a mystical reverence for feminine strength and beauty.  Her inspirations include ancient Egyptian art, traditional African sculptures and Native American totems (among others, of course... pre-med studies, and she often uses logs of osage orange wood from her grandfather’s farm in Illinois).  We enjoy that there is something “goddess” [...]

    By Eden Grey The grassroots-style three day exhibition at the 69th Regiment Armory calls to mind a unique atmospheric tension unlike any other gallery, museum or exhibit I have ever seen. The "ammunition," in a sense of the word, is the diversity and unfiltered sensuality of the art on view.  The whole experience is a modern Woodstock, reflective of the people’s liberation movement that occurred during the 1960s Cultural Revolution. Artists at Fountain are doing their part to change the wo[...]
