Firelei Báez. “Aqueduct” (2016), glazed stoneware and porcelain, 8 x 8 x 1 feet, all images via Courtney Mattison “Aqueduct” (2016), glazed stoneware and porcelain, 8 x 8 x 1 feet Doubling as an artist and ocean advocate, Courtney Mattison (previously) produces large-scale ceramic installations that draw attention to conservation of our planet’s seas.

Her latest installation “Aqueduct” showcases hundreds of porcelain sea creatures including anemones, sponges, and coral sprouting from a porcelain air duct. The piece asks us to imagine the plight of these undersea creatures as tropical sea temperatures begin to rise, asking where they might migrate to once their homes have been rendered uninhabitable. In addition to large-scale installations, Mattison also sculpts more intimate vignettes. The Denver-based artist studied marine ecology and ceramics at Skidmore College and received a Master of Arts degree in environmental studies from Brown University.

Aurel Schmidt Maneater October 4–November 1, 2008 76 Grand Street In this new body of work, Aurel Schmidt munches her way through modernist masterpieces, transforming them with graphite and colored pencil into seething masses of interwoven debris.

Gravitating toward the most iconic and most macho, she turns the gallery into a sort of Museum of Modern Art gone wrong. Picasso’s "Weeping Women" are her first meal: Composition and color are retained while one lady’s hat becomes a nest of seagulls and pigeons and her eyes are transformed into circles of feeding flies; the eyebrows are drawn as crawling centipedes, and her tears form pink cockroaches.

Two de Kooning women are fed into the shredder next. Schmidt makes drawings for the urban naturalist. —from the press release. About the Website. Shyra De Souza, Interdisciplinary Artist - Home.

Kim Joon - 51 Artworks, Bio & Shows on Artsy. Jeff Wall’s Unique Photographic Vision. ONE HUNDRED MILES into the desert north of Los Angeles, at the intersection of two crumbling roads that are slowly re-assimilating into the ruddy, sunbaked earth, a flimsy, black folding umbrella—the kind that sells for $7 at a drugstore—fends off the high-noon rays from its perch on a metal stand.

Jeff Wall’s Unique Photographic Vision

Beneath its shade, a tall man in a blue dress shirt and black jeans climbs onto a ladder, oblivious to the 85-degree heat. He peers through binoculars, concentrating intently on two land surveyors working about 15 yards in front of him and, beyond, the scrubland extending to the horizon. The binoculars are balanced atop an accordion-like, oversize black camera. After a moment, the man triggers the shutter by squeezing a small piston with a precise flicking motion that calls to mind Roger Federer’s net game. Then he lifts his head, runs his fingers through his chin-length gray hair and removes the exposed sheet of film from the camera before sliding in another. Taryn Simon. Information.
