Joyce's selections

Fintan Magee

Brisbane, Australia


Magee has the ability to transform the mundane into something magical. Though his illusions are whimsical they are always intelligent.


Lu Cong

Denver, CO


Having a unique approach to portraiture is not easy to accomplish yet Lu Cong does it flawlessly. While the subjects are contemporary the haunting expressions evoke a distant past. Not to mention how beautiful they all are.


Wayne White

Los Angeles, CA


I’m always attracted to words in any context. And aesthetically I love the juxtaposition of the vintage underlying the contemporary.


Brian Dettmer

Atlanta, GA


Brian’s reinvention of the book is no shorter than extraordinary. If his sculptures were made on a computer I would be impressed but the fact that they are each hand carved convinces me that he is a genius.


Hunter Stabler

Philadelphia, PA


I discovered Stabler’s work years ago at a group show in the Hamptons and was impressed with the delicacy of the hand cut paper. Yet the subject matter is far from fragile. From fighter jets to skulls you find yourself lost in the intricacy of each work.
