Asger Carlsen

I have to assume that Asger Carlsen preens through books on medical anomalies.  His photography breaks human bodies into stacks of distorted appendages coiling and stacking back upon themselves.  His use of repetition, positioning and scale force your eye to examine each suggestion of a body, trying to piece it back together while Carlsen tears it back apart.

Robert van Embricqs

Finally, flat pack furniture that is stylish and modern!  From the creative mind of designer Robert van Embricqs comes the “Rising” series.  Born from a single board, each piece extends on it’s lattice perched legs to create a dimensional form that is striking for its function driven design.

Hilla Shamia

I love these so hard.  Poured steel, hewn logs, hard edges and clean lines.  Each piece dominates, Hilla Shamia knows how to forge wood in strikingly new directions.

Rebecca Stevenson

We’re all beautiful on the inside.  Rebecca Stevenson’s pastorally delicate resin sculptures concur.

Monika Grzymala

Resembling the webbing of a sci-fi parasite birthing itself from a milky primordial cereal bowl, Monika Grzymala’s tape installation bursts across a gallery hallway.  Mimicking both organic and synthetic structures, her piece totes meaning like a 3 dimensional rorschach of maliciousness.  It’s beautiful and terrifying, drawing you closer like a gull to an oil slick, hypnotizing your fears away until it’s caught you in it’s web.

Motoi Yamamoto

In Japanese culture, salt is an integral ingredient during rituals for the recently deceased.  Artist Motoi Yamamoto, changed by the premature death of his sister, creates patterns of remarkable size and complexity using the sea borne seasoning.  His labyrinths resemble trees, falling leaves, or an aerial view of suburbia.  Each installation takes weeks to create, his choice of medium and the repeating nature of his work touches on the complex simplicity of life; a sense of interconnectedness amongst anonymity.

Matthias Heiderich

Urban landscape photography by Matthias Heiderich, reminding us to keep an eye to the sky every now and then.  Function and form are a beautiful thing.

Gerhard Lentink

Incredibly arresting and fascinating wooden sculptures by Gerhard Lentink.  His artful combination of the human form with playful puzzle motifs lends his pieces a childlike wonder or perhaps a learned isolation.  Playing within the abstract, Lentink exposes the walls we build around ourselves and the loads we learn to carry.
