Kristina Bell DiTullo|
Kristina Bell DiTullo
was born in New York State and now resides in Cambridge, MA. She holds a
BFA in Illustration from The Rhode Island School of Design and an MA in
Art Therapy from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She is a
visual artist working in a range of media showing work nationally in the
USA in group shows. Her work is inspired by architecture, industrial
structures, urban development, social patterns, human relationships,
consumer culture, psychology and all the other musing that occur around
her. DiTullo also maintains her work as an art therapist on a part-time
Seth Scantlen received his BFA
from the Columbus College of Art and Design in Painting and Printmaking in
2002. Seth is currently an MFA Candidate at Columbia University. His work
has been exhibited extensively.
Michelle Rogers grew up in a
small-industrialized town in Ireland called Dundalk on the strained border
between North and the South, at the height of the troubles. As an artist,
although it inspired her, she chose not to dwell initially on the conflict
so close to home. Her earliest paintings centered on the Gulf War, and it
was in response to this work that Amnesty International selected her to go
to Bosnia in 1993. This trip was the impetus for a Dark Heart an impressive
series of paintings about the darker side of human nature in which,
according to Nicholas Bergman, curator at New York's Caelum Gallery "she
sensitively creates a mood of moral decay, of spiritual darkness and
despair, there is, simultaneously, a grandeur to the work, which, harks
back to the masters - Goya in particular."
Kara Gunter is currently an MFA
Candidate of Sculpture with a Minor of Ceramics at the University of South
Carolina; Columbia, SC. She holds a BFA in Sculpture from Winthrop
University in Rock Hill, South Carolina.
Jeffrey Allen Price is a multi-media installation artist.
His work often alludes to natural processes such as growth and decay and
ultimately comments on consumerism and materialistic culture. His work is
process-based, and often contains humorous and playful elements. Upon
closer inspection these works reveal multi-layered interpretations. His
works have been shown internationally and have been featured in The New
York Times and on the Food Network. Jeffrey Allen Price is also an
Assistant Professor of Studio Art York College in Jamaica, Queens, NY and
an Assistant Professor of Art History at Hofstra University.
In her own words "After moving to California I began
experimenting with patinaed steel. The work as a whole is a pursuit to
embody the ambiance and materials found in post-industrial areas along
with my early perspectives on these places. The color combinations derive
from my daily environment: peeling bathroom paint, paper on telephone
poles, foundling mattresses. I'm interested in the texture resulting from
the layering of paint, the physical process of chipping and scrubbing it
away, and the timeline that emerges.
Dilapidation, neglect, and
seclusion regularly surface as themes. The focus is based on the
unintentional allure they can cause, rather than the negative connotations
associated with them. These coexist with, what at times, is sweet and
girlish. The contrast is a metaphor between me and the surroundings I
lived in while young. Wearing a pink sequined skating costume while
driving past incinerators, dye shops, and titty bars; and, the grey snow
half melted on the lawns of half burnt homes near the doctor's office are
some of the memories that reverberate subtly throughout my work."
Geoff Tate (Queensryche) |
formed in 1981, is considered to be one of the most influential bands to
rise in the 1980s-- largely due to the fact that Queensryche broke from
the marketable direction that was expected from bands in that era.
Throughout the 1980s Queensryche delivered something more than just songs
about sex, fun, and hangover memories-- they delivered socially charged
songs that challenge the listeners perception of the world and
relationships around us. Today they continue to carve their own path
musically and conceptually.
For nearly three decades the band
has meshed aspects of visual art, video art, and performance art into
their performances on stage. Due to their thought provoking lyrics, sound,
and performances the band has been dubbed the "thinking man's heavy metal
band". Concept albums by Queensryche, such as Operation: Mindcrime, are
often mentioned alongside other notable concept albums, such as The Who's
Tommy and Pink Floyd's The Wall. To date over 20 million Queensryche
albums have been sold worldwide. We interviewed Geoff Tate from the
qi peng was born in Queens, New York
in 1976 and received his masters degree at Yale University. He is a
conceptual artist who executes "interviews" as a form of collaborative
portraits with various art professionals and also uses primary/secondary
documents to examine the contemporary art market. Occasionally he does
paintings, photographs, and works on paper. The artist's studio is located
near downtown Salt Lake City and he works sometimes in New York City for
street art or fine art special projects.
He has been exhibited
in various places including the Projects Gallery, The Lab at Belmar,
modern8 Gallery, James Cohan Gallery/NURTUREart, Metro Pictures, Art Raw
Gallery, and Anna Kustera. qi peng is currently represented by The Barbara
Ann Levy Gallery based out of West Palm Beach, Florida
(www.balgallery.com). qi peng will have his first solo show at Envoy
Gallery located in Lower East Side, New York City during June 2009.
Through painting, Antony Liu
makes sense of broken things and searches for subtle beauty in the midst
of discord. Liu states that he believes in the coexistence of things, but
not in their equality. He explains that where conflict reigns, the
possibility of harmony is present. He attempts to find bridges in order to
situate what is displaced. Thus, his work reflects an interest in the
unchanging laws of color science and theory. Liu states that he finds a
sense of security in the fact that what we see can be identified and
Sarah Maple has been called many
things due to her art-- some people have lashed out at her with vulgar
anonymous messages, others have praised her for her bravery and humor,
some have called her the heir to Tracey Emin's throne. One thing is for
certain-- she is not going to stop.
In my opinion, your art,
specifically your series of photographs, documents aspects of cultural
growth and expansion in that it captures the essence of youthful rebellion
that has dominated culture, politics, and even religion in the last decade
or so. In other words, if your art is shocking it is because society--
today-- is shocking. With that in mind-- your work grows with us and is
therefore valid. What are your thoughts on this?
Allise Noble states that
attention to detail is an important aspect of her artwork. Her primary
work involves drawing meshed with other mediums-- such as paint. Noble's
art has been described as whimsical and soft without structure-- a balance
between a visual display of reality and the makings of dreams.
a sense, Noble explore psychology-- specifically the psychology of
identity-- within her work. The thoughts of her subjects are hidden and
ambiguous. The viewer must look to the surroundings and other elements in
order to solve the puzzle of what is in the subject's mind. Noble strives
to create work that conveys more than one meaning. Thus, her body of work
is open to the interpretation of viewers.

described as "floating continents". These continents are packed with
characters placed in various situations. Becker describes his continents
as a format for the placement of objects that either relate to each other
thematically or relate in a manner that is non-linear, but narrative of
something sublime or intense.
As Editor-in-Chief of Whitehot
Magazine (WM), Becker maintains a roster of over 130 journalists covering
the art world with reports, reviews and interviews from around the world.
