“Working excessively fancy parties as an event photographer for Vanity Fair and The New Yorker grants Jessica Craig-Martin unusual privilege to the über-privileged; apart from her commissioned work she makes photographs that are as brightly lit, colorful and crisp as the ones in the glossies but that zoom in on the details”, wrote Emma Drew

It looks like something a pre-schooler might construct out of hot-pink pipe cleaners, magnified a millionfold.

Hyperallergic reviews Carl D’Alvia: Endless
Stephen Maine writes, “This knockout, two-venue show — D’Alvia’s first solo outing in New York since 2013 — demonstrates the absurdist humor, masterful craftsmanship, and elliptical thinking of an artist for whom working at apparent cross-purposes is an end in itself: embracing irresolution, the banalities of existence combine to form imponderable conundrums.”
Endless is included in New York Magazine’s What to Do in New York list
Jerry Saltz writes: “From some magical, mystical garden of unseen shapes all covered in surfaces that imitate tree trunks, animal fur, and feathers, sculptor-magician extraordinaire Carl D’Alvia’s double show is a tour de force, using simulated wood grain cast in resin, returning us to a golden age of heroic sculpture.”

Nathalie Karg Gallery at UNTITLED SAN FRANCISCO
Nathalie Karg Gallery is pleased to participate in the 1st edition of Untitled San Francisco, opening January 13th. In our booth C10, we will present new works by Nathlie Provosty, Dorian Gaudin and Amir Nikravan.
In addition, for Untitled Monuments, we will present a projection by Amba Sayal-Bennett titled Manta. Sayal-Bennett is interested in the process of translation— specifically, the effects and affects generated by the transposition of elements across different media. She created the projection piece site-specifically: layering the prints with other prints of drawings, obscuring sections of the projection bed using paper, objects and tape in order to alter the light fall of the projected image, and using tape, foam and other materials selected from the repertoire of objects and materials collected in her studio to work into the projected area of light. The artist thus explores how the drawings change through this transposition, and how structural dissonances created by this movement across sites (paper and room) affect how she works back into them.
Culture Trip names Jesse Mockrin an up-and-coming contemporary artist
Alexia Wulff writes: “Her work, deep and monumental, unveils a fantasy world of lush plant and floral life, soothing colors, and strangely polished faces, one most of us imagine only in our dreams. Whether it’s the eyes peering from behind delicately draped fabric, or the partially cropped images, her work suggests there’s something else to be seen.”
