Tracey's selections


Jeremy Mann

San Francisco, CA

"

Deeply evocative of the Impressionist masters, Mann’s paintings of modern cityscapes seamlessly blend the old world to the new. His haunting, sfumato-filled images create a sense of timeless, shared experience and blur the delicate line between waking memory and dream.

"

Cha Jong-Rye

Daejeon, South Korea

"

The intricate folds, creases, knobs, shadows and highlights of Jong-Rye’s stunning, wood wall sculptures beg to be appreciated with all five senses. Undeniably impressive from a technical standpoint, they are aesthetically compelling as well, and it quickly becomes impossible not to stroke the curves and deep crevasses of the beckoning shapes.

"

Jeff Demetriou

Atlanta, GA

"

Echoing the detritus society leaves in its wake, layers of visual pentimenti rise to the surface in Demetriou’s provocative abstract compositions. Visually and conceptually multi-layered, Demetriou’s paintings defy interpretation and must be returned to time and again, as they reveal something new upon each viewing.

"

Richard Galpin

London, UK

"

Although Galpin’s complex, abstract cityscapes initially feel futuristic, they are reminiscent of Russian Suprematism from the early 20th century. As such, although constructed in a completely different manner, they too play with ideas of abstraction and representation but with the addition of the photographic process, modern design, and the contemporary, urban landscape thrown in.

"

Philipp S. Rittermann

Escondido, CA

"

The intense chiaroscuro in Ritterman’s photographs lends them an intriguing aura of fantasy and mystery. His sweeping panoramas and intimate dioramas are imbued with a technical perfection matched by the dynamic mise-en-scene of each composition. It is easy to understand how Ritterman’s captivating imagery has garnered him critical acclaim on an international stage.
