Gregory's selections


Isidro Blasco

New York, NY

"I love the way the flat, representational images actually become a constructed space. That each image was shot at a different time is appealing to me. Being surrounded by “moments” instead of a single “moment” is a nice touch. It distorts my understanding of space and I always enjoy the feeling of trying to figure it out and how it consequently affects the way I view the world around me."

Bovey Lee

Pittsburgh, PA

"I first saw Bovey’s work when we were in a show together at Rena Bransten Gallery in San Francisco. There were many amazing artists working in paper, but Bovey’s work really struck me. Besides the fact that the work is cut out of paper, I don’t really care that the works are cut by hand or that they are cut out of paper, her composition and line work is astounding. I really enjoy the way she uses space in her composition as well. One narrative bleeds into the next and there is little regard for traditional spatial hierarchy."

Onishi Yasuaki

Osaka, Japan

"Onishi’s work really brings attention to the structure and the form of the negative space. I really appreciate the absence of form… as with Rachel Whiteread's work, the object is missing. In Onishi’s work what is often left is an index of the object."

Isaac Cordal

Brussels, Belgium

"I am not completely familiar with Isaac’s work but, I have seen it here and there. When miniatures inhabit the same space we are accustomed to it allows me to look at the space in a different way; a magical way. I enjoy that fantastic element of this work, but because it also has a very dark tone it cuts through that playful, childlike fantasy."

Tviga Vasilyeva

New York, NY

"I love the sound stills work where she places the white sculptures made from field recordings in the recently cut old growth forests. I tend to enjoy things when they are visually and conceptually interesting. I also appreciate the direct interaction with the land."
