Self taught sculptor, Matt Devine, works with steel, stainless steel, aluminum, and bronze. Pared-down organic shapes are formed out of sheets of metal and solid materials. Seamlessly welded together, these metal works often appear as light as paper. His sculptures can be found in private collections throughout North America and international collections on five continents.
In Max-Steven Grossman's photographic series of "Bookscapes" the assembled libraries only exist in his photographs. From photos of different bookshelves, he reorganizes them into a creative digital composition of a new thematic "Bookscape". The relationship each viewer experiences is almost immediately personal depending on the theme of the particular assembled library and the viewers relationship to that theme. Some examples of "Bookscape" themes are Hollywood, Rock and Roll, Fashion, Architecture, Art, etc.
Paul Rousso uses heat infusion on polystyrene to create hyper-realistic, hyper-sized, sculptures of everyday print objects. Through exaggerations of size, Rousso places such familiar items as a crumpled-up ten-dollar bill or a bubble gum wrapper on the same relative plane as the viewer. Rousso’s art speaks to the conversion of physical objects and the effect of that transformation on the viewer. He points out that, “all this stuff is going away,” and as the ink and paper era is drawing to a close, Rousso wants you to take a good long look.
