    Rebecca Morgan

    Clearfield, PA, United States, b. 1984
    Rebecca Morgan is from central Pennsylvania, and her paintings, drawings, and ceramics emanate from stereotypes of rural Appalachia. Humorous, benevolent, and savage at turns, her characters touch on truths about poverty, addiction, and off-the-grid living, as well as idealizations of uncultured country life. Stylistically, Morgan embraces hyper-detailed naturalism, influenced by Dutch painters such as Memling, Brueghel, and Van Eyck, as well as absurd, repulsive caricature suggestive of underground cartoonists like R. Crumb. As an on-and-off-again New Yorker, she represents the ultimate insider/outsider point-of view, embracing and critically distancing herself from her origins. Morgan’s face jugs revive a craft tradition common in the American South and Appalachia of vessels used by slaves to ward off the devil and later for scaring children away from moonshine. The individual portrait is replaced by the jug’s typecasting, and the contemporary is subsumed in the folkloric. Modern woes of methadone addiction, unemployment, and abandonment by society, collapse into a centuries-old societal disgust at country folk. Rebecca Morgan received a BA from Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania and her MFA from Pratt Institute, NY. Press for her work includes Time Out New York, ARTnews, Whitehot Magazine, Beautiful Decay, Artslant, Juxtapoz Magazine, The Huffington Post, and Berlin’s Lodown Magazine, among others. She is the recipient of a residency at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, The Watershed Center for Ceramic Arts Residency, a Vermont Studio Center full fellowship, and the George Rickey Residency at Yaddo. Exhibitions include Invisible Exports, NY, Elga Wimmer Gallery, NY, Arts KC, MO, Booth Gallery, NY, Gasser Grunert Gallery, NY, Richard Heller Gallery, Los Angeles, CA, Vox Populi Gallery, Philadelphia, PA, and Spring/Break, New York, NY, among others. Her work is currently on view at the Vancouver Art Gallery as part of “Juxtapoz X Superflat”, and traveling exhibition curated by Evan Pricco and Takashi Murakami.

    Adrián S. Bará

    New York, NY, United States, b. 1982
    Adrián S. Bará (Mexico City, 1982) lives and works in New York. Bará’s artistic practice combines his educa- tion and experience as a filmmaker, his interest for visual narratives, and his empirical approaches to everyday situations. His work is generated through the appropriation of visual elements and materials taken from his immediate environment. They are presented as traces of a story of contemporary reality and are arranged as fragments to compose new narratives. Recent museum exhibitions include: Leviatán at the Museo de Arte Raúl Anguiano (MURA) and Tinnitus y Fosfenos at the Museo de Arte Zapopan (MAZ) in 2014. Bará was the cinematographer forThe Solitude of Memory. The film was included in the Cannes Film Festival 2015 and he was a guest at the Semaine de la Critique. The film also won in the Slamdance Film Festival of that same year. Bará has been selected to be part of the residency program at ISCP (International Studio & Curatorial Program), New York, 2016 and is currently at Queen Space, New York (2017).   http://adrianbara.com/

  • Rodrigo Hernández

    Rodrigo Hernández

    Mexico City, México, b. 1983

    Rodrigo Hernández (Mexico City, Mexico, 1983) lives and works between Mexico City and Lisbon. His practice deals in general with processes of reduction and simplifications in the art-making, both content wise and in its processes. The works show a very strong connection to the hand-made and a research on very simple materials, while the conceptual processes that are behing the pieces are often rooted in questions about the world around us and the use of a mix of references that span from history of art to the visualization of ideas that deal with fundamental human-constructed concepts (the idea of time, for example, or the concept of human being itself).

    Recent exibitions include: ‘Um die Ecke denken’, Museum Haus Konstruktiv, Zurich (2016); ‘Every forest madly in love with the moon has a highway crossing it from one side to the other’, Kurimanzutto, Mexico City (2016); ‘Jungs, hier kommt der Masterplan’, Kunsthalle Basel, Basel (2015); ‘El pequeño centro’, Museo Universitario del Chopo, Mexico City (2015); ‘What is the moon?’, Bonnefanten Museum, Maastricht (2014). In the last years he has been awarded with a residency at Laurenz-Haus Stiftung in Basel in 2015 and at Cité International des Arts in Paris in 2016.

    Rodrigo Hernández opened last September ‘I Am Nothing’ at the Heidelberger Kunstverein and was included in the last FEMSA Biennial in Monterrey and in the last Moscow Biennial. In 2017, he will be having solo exhibitions in Kim?, Riga, Latvia and at Madragoa, Lisbon, Portugal.

  • James hd Brown

    James hd Brown

    Los Ángeles, California, Estados Unidos, b. 1950
    James hd Brown’s work consists of painting, experimental stamp, ceramic, textiles and artist books. It can aesthetically be located on the context of contemporary tendencies that have moved the abstract language towards new poetics. The series he produces are among a practice in which abstraction generates images structured as very subtle models or diagrams. The cult that this artist has to the connection of the visual to the mental sceneries as well as the passion he has to found and energetically charged supports, create a body of work that goes from immaterial representation contained in neutral spaces to the construction of passages of post-psychedelic painting.
