Detailed Description :
GREG HABERNY is a post-contemporary artist American artist. It was the work of Larry Clark that helped him understand how art could be more than just beauty, leading him to a world that welcomed controversy and strong personal expression. His discovery of artists like Cy Twombly would open up his world into the abstract, Martin Kippenberger’s diversity helped him to identify with his own compulsiveness, and Duchamp’s satirical spirit allowed him the freedom to release his own sardonic style. It was through film that he learned how installations, as a medium, can be produced and directed. Artist's Documents: Greg Haberny 2014 CV

Shinji Murakami
Biography :
SHINJI MURAKAMI is a Japanese artist who uses his love of 8-bit video game expressions, simple vector lines, and original childish drawing characters to interrogate the virtual world seeping into our ‘real world’. In 2003 Shinji began creating 8-bit map works and street art, and from 2009 until now, he has been working on 3D-8bit sculptures that give physical form to the flat 8-bit images. The philosophy of Gunpei Yokoi, the famous inventor of Nintendo’s Game Boy: “Lateral Thinking with Withered Technology,” plays heavily into Murakami’s conceptual framework. Withered technology in this context refers to a mature technology that is cheap and well understood. Lateral thinking refers to finding radical new ways of using such technology. Yokoi held that toys and games do not necessarily require cutting edge technology; novel and fun gameplay are more important.This concept is something that has been practiced throughout recent art history. The silkscreen prints of Andy Warhol and the American comic-style expression of Roy Lichtenstein, are born from withered technology. Murakami does not believe that profound human understanding has necessarily caught up to the explosive evolution of modern computer technology (also according to Moore’s Law). The pixelated expressions of 8-bit video games, which give those in his generation born in the 1980s nostalgia, are also one withered part of this evolutionary process. This pixel that will probably be forgotten in a few years due to the appearance of the Retina Display. He is, right now, fascinated by lateral thinking of this pixel. Exhibition :

Yapci Ramos
Biography :
The work of the Spanish artist YAPCI RAMOS is forceful in its subtle simplicity. A multi-media artist of striking complexity, her diverse output is deeply invested in interactions: not the simple interaction of cause and effect but the complex interactions that define the subject in relation to the Other. With a keen eye for abstract visual and conceptual relationships, an uncanny ability to capture personal moments, and a subtle capacity for implying narrative depth, her artistic output makes the viewer question their assumptions about people and the places the live and work. Her work challenges the border of comfort between the body and society while engaging the intricate workings of both internal psychology and external expressions of identity. ​ ​Ramos’ photographic work is filled with stark, raw colors and forms. The subjects are brutally honest (...LO-LI-TA...), with real, time-worn bodies teaming with strength (Corps) in equal parts with a delicate, open vulnerability (Border). These bodies are not alone however, they are situated firmly in well-defined architectural spaces, firmly rooted in societies, embedded in neighborhoods, living lifestyles filled with friendships and hardships (Portra-It). Ramos captures an almost documentary veracity while simultaneously framing the subject with a hint of personal understanding and engagement. In many of these works, buildings become bodies, equally time-worn and even more situated in place. Benches, facades, and hallways take on an almost cinematic anticipation (Hotel, Un Paseo por Flamingo Park) and a dynamic temporality. Her images generate stories, each pockmarked with the legible traces of life-lived, and life-to-come. The images become a vessel for the narrative etched in the careful framing, positioning, lighting, of the subjects. A substantial multi-media output reinforces the documentary streak through Ramos’ practice, but through a lens that fragments and reassembles the captured sound and Exhibition :

Detailed Description :
JUSTIN ORVIS STEIMER (born 1981, Colorado) is an American abstract painter. He works primarily on salvaged materials ranging from linen and boat sails, which he cuts and sews into canvases, to pieces on inanimate objects that find their way into his life. These objects, and the cutting, sewing, and stretching of materials into large, geometric canvases, are just as much a part of the work as the painting itself; their natural characteristics informing each step of the process. When he paints, he focuses his attention on the space, the object, or the person the painting depicts, absorbing its energy and translating it into his ever-evolving abstract vocabulary. The first layer of painted shapes informs the next as Steimer connects and breaks down space. The final layer could not exist without those first strokes, whether resembling them or not, nor could it exist without the base, the canvas itself.
