Annie's selections


Nils Nova

Luzern, Switzerland

"I love the way he manipulates the space, plays with our eyes, giving us a brief illusion."

Michael Arcega

San Francisco, CA

"Full disclosure: He is my studio mate. That said he is a brilliant artist. His work is funny, poignant, conceptually layered and impeccably crafted. Just in case you think I am being biased, Im not the only one who likes his work , he just won a Guggenheim Fellowship."

Sergio A. Delgado

Dallas, TX

"He activates the spaces he photographs. Creating emotional landscapes or maps. They have a humorous darkness."

Ala Ebtekar

Berkeley, CA

"Ala is a Bay Area artist and I have seen and loved his work for years. He combines mythology and history with contemporary imagery."

Amy Stein

New York, NY

"I love her artist statement: "Within my work I examine the primal issues of comfort and fear, dependence and determination, submission and dominance that play out in the physical and psychological encounters between man and the natural world. Increasingly, these encounters take place within the artificial ecotones we have constructed that act as both passage and barrier between domestic space and the wild.""
