appreciate: Do Ho Suh

My favorite thing about art installations is that the audience is able to interact with the piece more so than they would with a painting or photography. Korean sculptor and installation artist, Do Ho Sh is one of the reasons why I love this medium. His work is just as striking  and thought provoking from … Continue reading

appreciate: JR

JR is known for a different kind of street art, where he flyposts large scale black and white photographs in public spaces that usually have … Continue reading

appreciate: Paola Pivi

He photographed forgotten copper canisters that came from a psychiatric hospital that were filled with cremated patients. The chemicals in the ashes seem … Continue reading

Appreciate: François Marie Banier

My first introduction to artist/photographer/novelist/playwright/actor François Marie Banier was through the Diane von Furstenberg campaign he did in 2008.
