Dana Sherwood featured in Lens/Cratch: “Politics of the Kitchen: Dana Sherwood”

As we peer into these night visions through Sherwood’s lens, her other-worldly sets and confections invite us into another reality. Through her patient and humorous overtures, the animals reveal themselves. The creatures upend our notions of order as they wash their paws in teacups and walk on the table. They surprise us.

Amanda Valdez: Gratitude included in Surface Magazine’s Itinerary

For the past year, Amanda Valdez has been contending with gratitude as a tool to navigate stress, loss, and tragedy after the tumultuous past year saw her lose a parent and become a mother. Her process begins by “dislodging” ideas with small-scale drawings with shapes that emerge from motherhood, growth, and relationships. Utilizing both hand-dyed and commercially sourced fabrics, Valdez then sews the shaped panels of fabric into the canvas before stretching it over the frame, and then paints with a combination of oil stick, gouache, acrylic, and embroidery. This body of work also introduces weaving and quilting as an element in her paintings after experimenting with her four harness floor loom.

‘Two of a Kind: Future Retrieval’s “Close Parallel” at the Cincinnati Art Museum review in AEQAI

Traditionally the decorative arts are concerned with the aesthetics of functional objects such as furniture, vessels, and textiles, which are often designed to be reproduced. “Close Parallel” initiates a bold and daring conversation about perceptions of form and function through domestic vignettes that feature unusual juxtapositions and mutating motifs.

Sheida Soleimani in Artsy’s “5 Artists On Our Radar This March”

Soleimani’s use of bright colors and textured backgrounds draw the viewer into the conversation and ask us to spend time there. By suggesting rather than spelling out the violence she so often takes up, Soleimani maintains the privacy and agency of her subjects instead of probing into their pain.

Erin O’Keefe reviewed in Artforum

“I’m interested in finding/discovering/choreographing moments of uncertainty that exist in the image, but not in the ‘real’ spatial condition,” says Erin O’Keefe, erstwhile architecture professor turned full-time photographer of vision-confounding images. “You are left with just the image and its wrongness—you can never backtrack to compare, although the question of how it was made is still present.”
