“Sergio Gutiérrez´ practice use drawing as a reflexion zone, a complementary time to observation which acts intuivitively as a temporal emplacement in the imaginary. By recovering and redirecting luminous variations, temperatures and sounds between materials and their physical reactions to space, Gutiérrez interest in the corporeal and temporal dimensions of the image include a possibility of interaction with vistors.
“The double vision” implies the exploration and use of corporeal resources relative to the movements of rotating and extending a body, where the works are originated by the interplay of sight and touch in actions such as trace, impact, expand, mould, add, substract, place, handle, contain, hook, rotate and register.
Translating the graphic elements of point, line and plane to tridimensional forms, “The double vision” generates tactile wanderings through ceramic surfaces, being manipulated as tools to trace (contours and perimeters), and measure (volume, consistency, duration and distance), in which visitors will have the option of roaming, handle, place and re-trace its physical relation to space.

Since it is so gloomy outside today, I am really enjoying these airy, flower-filled photographs by Philadelphia-based photographer Roxana Azar. Azar digitally manipulates her photos to give them their painterly nuance and collaged compositions. To see more of her work, click here.
“Im interested in making things so that they communicate at the same level as the actual things”, Bradley says. “The mix of replicated elements in different materials with actual things – as in a bronze potato chip with an actual beer can – speaks to my relationship with materials and my personal agenda and value of things in the world. Sometimes you just have to let a beer can be a beer can.”
Chris Bradley (1982, USA) achieves realistic effects through uncommon means, summoning the appearance of grease or tape by using paint or replicating an ice bag using glass and plastic. Experimenting with three-dimensional trompe l’oeil, Bradley translates rectangular cardboard sheets, stained pizza boxes decorated with nuggets of gum, and other real world detritus into sculptures in aluminum, steel, bronze, concrete, and other materials.
“What drives me to work with everyday, mundane subjects is a faith that within each thing is a latent narrative or meaning”, he comments.

One of Mexico’s most prominent contemporary conceptual photographers, Alfredo De Stefano photographs the desert landscape creating images that address the natural environment’s elemental significance and our relationship to the land. Often employing ice, fire, and light, De Sefano creates enigmatic installations with both natural and man-made objects in the ethereal desert setting.
De Stefano was born in Monclova, Coahuila, a city in the desert in Northeastern Mexico. His work has been exhibited internationally including solo exhibitions at the The Recoleta Cultural Center, Buenos Aires, Argentina, 2012; Fourth International Biennial of Photography, Amsterdam, Netherlands, 2010; International Biennial of Guangzhou, Museum of Art, Guangzhou, China, 2009 and the Museum of Art Carrillo Gil, Mexico City, Mexico, 2008.

Working primarily with porcelain, ReCheng Tsang creates site-specific installations and smaller sculptures. The work consists of up to several hundred sometimes thousands of thin porcelain pieces. Each piece is rolled, pinched, pulled, torn, or otherwise manipulated by hand, then composed within a pre-defined grid. She explores the intrinsic qualities of porcelain, malleable and impressionistic, to create work that is tactile and sensual. She is also interested in the dichotomous relationship between the porcelain’s hardness and permanence, and the resulting work which appears to be delicate, ephemeral and in motion. She works monochromatically, often leaving the porcelain unglazed, to allow the attention to focus on the subtle shifts in form, color, and texture.
I first met ReCheng many years ago, through my grandmother’s critique group meetings. ReCheng taught me how to make a reversible, draped jersey vest (which I’ve always appreciated). Since then, I’ve seen her at a handful of meetings and always look forward to discovering what magic she’s brought to share. ReCheng lives and works in Berkley, CA.
