Boulder, Colorado-based Martha Russo pushes the boundaries of ceramics, using abstract forms freighted with references to biology, anatomy, and the purely fantastical. Three years ago, her retrospective “Coalescere,” at the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, summed up 25 years of art-making.
Paulina Webb hace honor al ejercicio del trabajo constante. Su obra se gesta allí mismo, en ese espacio entre el concepto, el no saber y la práctica. Con la mirada centrada en la investigación sobre la desmaterialización y liviandad de las masas, su trabajo apela a la luz y el color combinados con una vasta cantidad de materiales y soportes formales en pro de su búsqueda.
Millicent Young uses poor materials—horsehair, in particular—to create lyrical abstractions that resemble ancient artifacts or inspired attempts at joining the timeless elements of nature to a contemporary point of view. Educated at Wesleyan University and the University of Virginia, with an MFA from James Madison University, she has always followed her own path.
French conceptual artist Laurent Grasso recaptures something of the exciting uncertainty that characterizes scientific theories at the nexus of knowledge and belief. Inspired by the history of brilliant and beleaguered attempts to apply science to social well-being, he has been particularly influenced by Buckminster Fuller and the German physicist Winfried Otto Schumann.
Celebrated for his striking sculptural portraits of art world figures and exquisite remakes of art historical masterpieces, Barry X Ball dynamically connects the past to the present in his sophisticated and sensitive work. Employing computer technology and immeasurable hours of handwork, he carves precious stones into extremely expressive works of allegorical art.
At first glance, Susan Collis’s “Without you the world goes on,” at the Des Moines Art Center last year, looked more like an after-hours jobsite or an installation in progress than a finished art exhibition. Bundles of wood, a pair of worker’s overalls, a table, ladder, and chair, brooms, some drop cloths, a storage bag, even a tattered blue plastic tarp lay scattered about or were haphazardly pinned to the walls.
“There Must Be Some Way Out of Here,” on view at the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum through May 25, 2020, is artist Zoë Sheehan Saldaña’s most comprehensive exhibition to date. It consists of some 50 handmade objects—“artistic camouflage,” as the museum puts it—that appear to be ordinary items one might find in any home.

“Beyond the Blue,” Vibha Galhotra’s current solo exhibition at Jack Shainman Gallery in New York, imagines a narrative of interplanetary migration to Mars in the wake of the (human-made) destruction of our planet.
Los Angeles-based artist and activist Carolina Caycedo works primarily in the area of social justice. Her practice spans a variety of media and largely concerns itself with the problematics of river rights in Latin America, where hydroelectric dams are causing hardships for local and indigenous cultures.
