    Detailed Description : David Bates, an artist of remarkable technical facility and considerable art historical awareness, mixes classical art references with influences from Southern folk art in paintings, sculpture and reliefs that range from landscapes to portraits to still life. Originally fascinated with the light, water and wildlife of the lakes of Arkansas and particularly the Texas Gulf Coast David Bates compositions are done in a direct, concise manner that is subtly complex. The artist captures both the humor and pathos of his subject matter. David Bates has achieved a national reputation for the visual sophistication and emotional strength of his art.

  • Robert Colescott  (+)

    Biography : Born in Oakland, CA in 1925, Robert Colescott was the first African American artist to represent the United States in a solo exhibition at the Venice Biennale in 1997 at age 71. His mother, a pianist, and his father, a jazz musician and railroad porter, were friends with Sergeant Johnson. Johnson and Diego Rivera became the first major influences in the artist's life. Colescott, himself a musician, played drums and performed with local groups but after serving in the army in France during World War II. After the war, he returned to the San Francisco Bay Area where he received a BA and MA in art at UC Berkeley. He began to mature as an artist in 1949 when he lived in Paris for the year and studied with French cubist Fernand Léger. Colescott returned to Berkeley for a master's and spent the next decade teaching in the Northwest. In 1964, a teaching residency took him to Cairo, where Egyptian art reiterated for him Léger's ideas about narrative, but from outside the Western canon. After another stint in Paris, he returned in 1967 to the Bay Area in California and taught at the San Francisco Art Institute during the 1970s. From 1983 until 1995, Colescott was a professor of art at the University of Arizona, where in 1990 he was honored with the title of Regents' Professor. Robert Colescott's work is in several major institutions, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.

    Detailed Description : Renowned American figurative painter Robert Colescott died on June 4, 2009 at his home in Tuscon, Arizona at the age of 83. The artist is best known for his garishly powerful canvases lampooning racial and sexual stereotypes with rakish imagery, lurid colors, and almost tangible glee, most notably his George Washington Carver Crossing the Delaware: Page From an American History Textbook. Colescott’s relatively early embrace of racial issues in his art paved the path for contemporary African-American artists such as Ellen Gallagher, Kara Walker and Kalup Linzy. Robert Hutton Colescott was born in Oakland, Calif. on Aug. 26, 1925. His mother, a pianist, and his father, a jazz violinist who supported the family as a porter on the Southern Pacific Railroad, had moved to California from New Orleans in 1919 to improve their children’s chances for a good education. After serving in the army during World War II, Colescott majored in art at the University of California, Berkeley. He began to mature as an artist in 1949, when he lived in Paris for the year and studied with French cubist Fernand Léger. Colescott returned to Berkeley for a master’s and spent the next decade teaching in the Northwest. In 1964, a teaching residency took him to Cairo, where Egyptian art reiterated for him Léger’s ideas about narrative, but from outside the Western canon. After another stint in Paris he returned in 1967 to the Bay Area in California. In 1997, at age 71, Colescott became the first African American to represent the United States in a solo exhibition at the Venice Biennale, a major contemporary art exhibition. He compared the event to the breaking of the baseball color line when Jackie Robinson debuted with the Brooklyn Dodgers. “It was a grand symbolic event,” Mr. Colescott told the Baltimore Sun at the time. “But like Jackie Robinson, I had to be good enough to be there. If I had dropped the ball too many times, I wouldn’t have got there.” Robert Colesco

    Detailed Description : One of the leading post-modernist artists in New Orleans, Stephen Paul Day in his recent work often mines fairy tales for themes such as truth and deception, beauty and beastliness, innocence and its loss. Stephen Paul Day mines these themes for their symbolism as he explores the psychological/sexual/mythic/moral subplots of folktales. His superbly crafted glass sculptures can be sharp and biting but other pieces can be both beautiful and whimsical.

    Detailed Description : DeDeaux was the first artist in Louisiana to heavily utilize electronic technology beginning with the creation of her CB Radio Booth media sculptures and outdoor film projections, Drive Up Movies, on buildings in 1975. She is considered a pioneering artist in synchronized digital multi-screen immersive environments such as The Face of God that premiered at the 1996 Olympics and is winner of the international Montage 93 competition for work which best merged art and technology, featuring her multimedia installation Soul Shadows. She also applies new technologies within her 2D digital imaging, for example her life-size portraits of trees in the series Totems; within her translucent sculpture series Water Markers embedded with image; and media sculptures where objects serve as receptacles for moving image or sound, for example her storm culvert soundwork Broken and the 2010 video sculpture One Drop. Her sculptures often incorporate light, found in her Katrina memorial series Steps Home and in her series MUTANTS that will place illuminated floating sculptures down the Mississippi River and coastal wetlands, embedded with light-responsive water sensoring devices.

    Detailed Description : Lesley Dill’s work is characterized by the complex interweaving of a wide range of materials, image and text. Her constructions are suffused with emotional content. Language is a defining element in her work providing context and reference. The psyche and its relation to poetry and to the self are also core elements in Lesley Dill’s work. Her original syntheses of text and image combine language and the human body with a unique emotional directness.

    Detailed Description : James Drake is a remarkably versatile artist who is a superb draftsman, an expert sculptor specializing in welded-steel installations, and a penetrating photographer and video artist. In all of those media James Drake has deployed a consistent vocabulary of images relating to art history, weaponry, the fine line between savagery and civilization and life in the densely populated bilingual Juarez-El Paso border. James Drake’s work is allegorical, visceral, exquisitely crafted and visually seductive. As a draftsman his hand can be exacting or gestural. As a sculptor James Drake can render delicate, naturalistic detail. As a video artist and photographer he can generate a sense of intimacy as with his photographs of poor Mexican transvestite prostitutes. James Drake has been honored with inclusion in both the Venice Biennale and the Whitney Biennial.

  • Anderson & Low  (+)

    Biography : Jonathan Anderson and Edwin Low, who work as the photographic team of Anderson & Low, met while sharing darkroom space in London, and have worked together since 1990. Their photographic collaborations encompass the realms of portraiture, still life, nudes, architecture and landscapes. The artists work through each photographic challenge through a process of collaboration and discussion. The work of Anderson & Low is exhibited and acquired by museums (including the National Portrait Gallery, London) and private collections worldwide.

    Detailed Description : Willie Birch draws inspiration from his native New Orleans, observing the manifestations of and connections between the architecture, fashion, fare, celebrations, funerals, and other customs. He explores the uses of spacing, repetition, geometry, and proportion and presents with a bold transparency our unique modes of expression and the extracted patterns and symbology inherent within. His work has powerful political, sociological and spiritual meaning but is wonderfully anchored in the daily life of his 7th Ward New Orleans neighborhood.

    Detailed Description : Edward Burtynsky’s captivating imagery explores the transformation of nature by civilization, namely industry. The raw elements of mining, quarrying, manufacturing, shipping, oil production, and recycling become highly expressive visions of beauty and luminosity, found in the most unlikely of places.

    Detailed Description : Nicole Charbonnet appropriates Americana imagery, as well as compositions from noteworthy international artists, as a way of stimulating a sense of nostalgia, while also informing current social and political situations.

  • Clyde Connell  (+)

    Biography : Clyde Connell was the recipient of numerous awards including the National Award in the Visual Arts, and an Honor Award from the National Women’s Caucus for Art. She exhibited extensively throughout the United Sates and was included in “Crossing the Threshold”, a traveling exhibition of leading women figures in Contemporary Art. Her work is included in several prestigious collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the New Orleans Museum of Art.

    Detailed Description : Clyde Connell achieved a national reputation before her death in 1998. The artist lived and worked in a remote idyllic setting on Lake Bistineau south of Shreveport. The ancient art and culture of that setting mysteriously penetrate her quite contemporary work often characterized by empathy for those enduring suffering. Clyde Connell’s sculptures are evocative of ritualistic totems and primitive votive objects; her paintings employ primitive markings and pictographs associated with talismanic shapes.

  • Troy Dugas  (+)

    Biography : Troy Dugas is a native of Louisiana. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Louisiana in Lafayette and his Master of Fine Art from the Pratt Institute in New York.

    Detailed Description : Troy Dugas’ work is made from vintage product labels he purchases in unused bundles. He cuts and arranges this material onto flat surfaces (paper, canvas, or wood) to produce artworks that appear woven. He uses repetition, pattern, precision, and scale to distract from the original purpose of the label, to sell a product. The material is deconstructed through cutting or shredding and the essential elements of color, shape, and line are utilized in a new way. The immediacy of the graphic label is substituted with aesthetic sensation and contemplation. There is a certain mischievous pleasure in the process of this transformation, and at the same time, a kind of meditation.

    Detailed Description : Courtney Egan’s projection-based sculptural installations meld nature with technology, delivering an experience that is both pleasing and disconcerting. The ethereal projections – converging on walls, floors and sculptural elements – are inspired by the growing frequency of human exposure to nature via computers or television. Egan creates stunning yet “subtly impossible, hybrid tableaus” which envelope the viewer in a conversation between memory of the natural world and a new experience with a plant or flower. She explains the fundamental irony of the experience, stating, “We get closer and farther away from the natural world simultaneously when we experience it through a technological lens.”

  • Vernon Fisher  (+)

    Biography : Vernon Fisher was born in Texas in 1943. He received his MFA at the University of Illinois in 1969. He is the recipient of numerous accolades including three National Endowment for the Arts Individual Artist’s Fellowships and a John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship in 1995. In 2010, The University of Texas Press published a monograph, Vernon Fisher, in tandem with Vernon Fisher: K-Mart Conceptualism, the artist’s career retrospective at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. He has been included in two Whitney Biennials (most recently in 2000) and his work is in several public collections including, Albright-Knox Museum, Buffalo, NY; Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, Illinois; Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; Dallas Museum of Art, Dallas, TX; Frederick R. Weisman Art Museum, Minneapolis, MN; High Museum of Art, Atlanta, GA; Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C.; Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles, CA; Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, Fort Worth, TX; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (TX); Museum of Modern Art (NY); San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (CA); Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (NY); Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY. The artist lives and works in Fort Worth, TX.

    Detailed Description : Vernon Fisher constructs meticulously-rendered visual narratives woven with literary and scientific references, as well as pop cultural imagery and iconography culled from his youth. His fascination with how people make sense of the world results in humorous, ironic, or melancholic works with often paradoxical subjects and stylistic variations. He frequently employs the effect of photography, verifiable dates of historical events and educational instruments – blackboards, maps, and globes – to establish authenticity and coalesce fact and fiction.

  • Robert Gordy  (+)

    Biography : Robert Gordy is considered one of the most original and creative Southern painters of the twentieth century. He achieved far more beyond exquisite compositional patterning of forms – a technique self-described as “knitting” – and sensitivity to layers of color nuance. Perceptive art critics noted that Gordy invigorated his formalism through careful interest and attention to the French Symbolist-Surrealist tradition. He had a penchant for emotional release that would surface fully in his later riveting monotypes. In the works prior to 1982 there are often intense emotional realities beneath the apparent calm of the marvelous paintings and drawings. His unfortunate death from AIDS in 1986 at the age of 52 was an enormous loss.

    Detailed Description : Australian-born Simon Gunning has lived in New Orleans’ Bywater neighborhood for over 30 years. His appreciation for the local scenery – from streets to swamps – has never waned, as is evident in his renowned paintings of the Southern Louisiana landscape. Despite his veneration, his compositions are never sentimentalized. His edgy style of painting has been described as “an iconic personal statement about life, death, sorrow, and a love affair with an exotic land.” He has a startling ability to capture scenes at the most felicitous time of day, rendering the light and color that is so unique to the landscape.

    Detailed Description : Working in the traditional genre of still-life photography David Halliday first gained renown for elegant, meticulously composed sepia-toned silver prints. His later color work maintains the same intimate and simple beauty but also creates a visceral connection for the viewer. Halliday's work is characterized by attention to detail and to composition. Like a painter, he emphasizes volumes, balances, texture and areas of subtle shading. David states, “The point of my work is to show that the borders between life and art are blurry. Things come out of the market, the garden, the kitchen cabinet. It’s often happenstance. Sometimes I find pieces in antiques shops or friends bring me things.”

    Detailed Description : John Hartman, one of Canada’s most renowned contemporary painters, conceives of cities not as man-made anomalies but rather as provocative landscapes. With a unique and vibrant color palette, astral-like perspective and obvious deference, he captures the essence and lifeblood of the chosen terrain. Hartman typically draws inspiration and direction from photographs and sketches he makes aboard chartered flights above the urban landscapes. He states, "With me there's an awful lot of research about the cities, much that doesn't get used. But even if I am very familiar with the subject I let each painting develop in unusual and unexpected directions. I paint from top to bottom, leaving what I've finished as a kind of cinema that's unfolding.”

    Detailed Description : Joseph Havel’s sculptures exemplify the fluid condition between meanings, associations and the histories of common materials. Through reconfiguration of shape and material, everyday objects such as shirt labels, collars, flags and sheets present new impressions without erasing evidence of the originals. The intent of the artist “is for memory, an associative pentimento, to dissolve the resoluteness of the forms into something more poetic.”

  • Deborah Kass  (+)

    Detailed Description : Deborah Kass is revered for her articulation of the female voice in a male dominated art world. Drawing from contemporary society, Broadway musicals, Yiddish and prominent art figures, she incorporates lyrics and vernacular, melding art history and pop culture in vibrant, resonating compositions reminiscent of Frank Stella and Ellsworth Kelly. The work is depictive of the current posture of popular and political culture and the ensuing dysphoria, especially in contrast to the optimism of the postwar era. Eric Shiner, director of the Andy Warhol Museum, describes, “Deb is an expert at putting a smile on her viewers’ faces, but she packs a wallop behind those smiles.”

    Detailed Description : Over the course of two decades, Ted Kincaid has systematically subverted the notion of an objective photographic record. As his art continues to explore the play between painting and photography, Kincaid is one of several artists creating a new painting informed by photo-imagery and a new photography influenced by painting. The artist has explored this conceptual discourse through multiple series of work, deftly riding the line between the construction of totally manufactured images that bear the aesthetic of seemingly straightforward photographic images and actual photographs that buzz with vibrant palettes almost too fantastic to be considered plausible.

    Detailed Description : The paintings of Amer Kobaslija encompass detailed representations of artists’ studios as well as cityscapes often fraught with disaster. Regardless of the subject, the perspective is much the same, described as a, “moth’s point of view” or as “standing on a hillside looking down,” giving the viewer a broader but more immediate experience of the subject.

  • Ida Kohlmeyer  (+)

    Biography : Born in New Orleans in 1912, Kohlmeyer has been called one of the best Abstract Impressionist painters of the South. She began her career as an artist in mid-life after raising her family. She entered Newcomb College as an art student in 1950 and earned a master’s degree in painting. In 1956 she moved to Provincetown, Massachusetts to experiment with Abstract Expressionism alongside Hans Hofmann. Known for his use of color, Hoffman persuaded her to turn to abstraction in her work. She also later studied with Mark Rothko when he was artist in residence at Tulane University. In the 1970s, Ida developed her distinctive vocabulary of shape and symbols. In the early 1980s she began work on what would be her acclaimed series of boldly painted elaborately shaped metal sculpture. Ida worked every day in the studio adjacent to her Metairie home and rose garden until her death in January, 1997. Kohlmeyer received a number of awards for her artistic achievement, including the Lifetime Achievement Award, Women’s Caucus for Art, New York, NY, USA (1980), the Museum Purchase Award, Twenty-first Southeastern Annual Exhibition, The High Museum of Art, Atlanta, GA, USA (1966), and the Ford Foundation Purchase Award, Twenty-eighth Corcoran Biennial of Contemporary American Painting, Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, DC, USA (1963).

    Detailed Description : At the time of her death in 1997 Ida Kohlmeyer was Louisiana’s most renowned artist. Her paintings and sculpture, characterized by exuberance and painterly freedom, are personal interpretations of a wide world of joyous color, motion and vitality. She was able to express deep feeling directly on to her canvases. Ida Kohlmeyer developed a distinctive vocabulary of shapes and symbols which she first organized in grid format and later in loose flowing patterns. The artist translated that style into her acclaimed metal sculptures with their vertical arrangements of both geometric and organic shapes.

    Detailed Description : Gene Koss blends simple process with advanced fabrication techniques to create glass sculptures that reveal the constant inspiration provided by the rural landscapes of his youth and life. The internationally known artist’s vision remains profoundly humanist, yet this recent work presents an intentional rawness. Several of the works in this exhibition incorporate found object pieces that have been woven in with the artist’s own dialogue. The work ranges in scale from large cast glass and steel sculptures to smaller blocks dubbed “glass drawings.”

    Detailed Description : Employing both 4×5 and 8×10 Arca-Swiss cameras that maximize detail, David Leventi creates a body of large scale photographs that document the intricate interiors of famous national and international opera houses, as well as roundhouse prisons, stadiums and palazzi. In these dramatic photographs, Leventi seeks to alter both lateral and vertical symmetry in order to flatten out the spaces, giving the viewer the effect of being completely surrounded by the spaces.

    Detailed Description : Srdjan Loncar creates a witty yet sophisticated combination of sculpture and photography. In both form and content Loncar’s work explores the intersection of art, technology, science, and subjectivity. His work is concerned with the reproduction of known actual objects that are natural and organic, political, historical, domestic and mundane. Loncar’s method generally consists of carving forms of familiar objects out of Styrofoam and covering them with close-up photo images of the object’s surfaces. The result is a distorted mosaic made up of small, individual, photographic truths which reveal the complexity of observation, recording and representation. Substituting the detail photographs of the object for the actual elements of the object, the artist creates exaggerated simulacra, whereby the difference between the actual and the false is diminished and emphasized at the same time. This technique produces a series of unresolved tensions — two-dimensional versus three-dimensional, disembodied versus embodied, absence versus presence — all of which speak to the fate of an individual in our self-produced hyper-reality. For Loncar, the hyper-real is a state of being where due to the bombardment of images, especially by the media, it is hard to distinguish between the true and the false, the original and the copy.

  • Whitfield Lovell  (+)

His work is in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the National Museum of American Art and the Seattle Art Museum.

    Detailed Description : Whitfield Lovell creates delicately orchestrated assemblages that blend surfaces, images and objects and call to memory the African-American experience in the United States. The artist has a collection of approximately 600 tintypes, cabinet cards and photo postcards of African-Americans, principally from around the turn of the twentieth century through the 1950s. These vintage source photographs provide the basis for many of the works which evoke speculation about the subjects’ lives and experiences as they look out at the viewer with apparent composure and steadfastness. Lovell’s finished works are empathetic yet detached. The drawings reveal African-American spirituality and recall the memories and the heritage that define African-Americans.

    Detailed Description : Deborah Luster’s documentary photographs impart the community, culture and landscape of the South. Working with medium format cameras, she presents the rituals of daily life, the life forces in objects and the inner spirits of her subjects. As poet C.D. Wright describes, “She offers no theory, adheres to none; none stick back. She studies compulsively and applies in the particular, what works then and there.”

  • Bunny Matthews  (+)

    Biography : Bunny Matthew's work has been exhibited at the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Contemporary Arts Center, the New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts, the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art in Winston-Salem, North Carolina and the St. Tammany Art Association.

    Detailed Description : In 1982, Bunny Matthews created Vic and Nat’ly for the Times-Picayune. Vic and Nat’ly Broussard, a husband-and-wife duo, are emblematic of a city that prides itself on eccentric characters and a wealth of distinctive culture and folkways. Vic is a bulbous, egocentric curmudgeon prone to malapropisms. Nat’ly is a brassy bombshell with upswept hair who always seems to have the last word. In New Orleans, they are cultural and commercial icons. In addition, he has created a series of drawings based on African-American themes, including provocative reinterpretations of famous works by other artists.

  • Elemore Morgan, Jr.  (+)

    Biography : Elemore Morgan, Jr., was born in Baton Rouge in 1931. After serving in the Air Force during the Korean War, he graduated from the Ruskin School of Fine Art in Oxford, England. He returned to Louisiana and in 1968 became a professor of Fine Art at the University of Southwestern Louisiana, where he taught until 1998. In 2006, Morgan was given a major retrospective at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art: "Art and Life in Louisiana: Elemore Morgan Sr, and Elemore Morgan, Jr," which included the pioneering Louisiana photography work of his father. Morgan received a Krasner-Pollock Foundation grant in 2007, which allowed him to travel to New York City where, again working in the open air, he completed multi-paneled paintings of the Manhattan skyline. Near the end of his life he also completed several Crescent City riverscapes. Morgan passed away in 2008 at the age of 76.

    Detailed Description : Elemore Morgan, Jr., was acknowledged for many years as the leading contemporary Louisiana landscape painter. He was especially renowned for his "en plein air" landscape paintings done in the heart of the rice- growing region of southwest Louisiana. Many of Morgan's landscapes were done in acrylic on oddly shaped Masonite panels, cut to fit his vision of the land, which he felt were integral to the design and composition of his works. Possessed of an amazing ability to transmit what is real and true about the southwest Louisiana landscape, Morgan communicates in his vibrant, color-saturated paintings the intense heat and overbearing humidity of the rice fields in Acadiana.

    Detailed Description : Jesús Moroles works on both a monumental and small scale in his granite sculpture. He achieves a poetic resonance of material, form and motif though working with a stone of great density, hardness and weight. Moroles combines cutting and polishing techniques with the natural presence of the stone to create works of universal stature. Moroles states, ” My work is a discussion of how man exists in nature and touches nature and uses nature. Each of my pieces has about 50 percent of its surfaces untouched and raw—those are parts of the stone that were torn. The rest of the work is smoothed and polished. The effect, which I want people to not only look at but touch, is a harmonious coexistence of the two.”

    Detailed Description : Inspired by the minimalist work of Agnes Martin and Donald Judd, Pard Morrison has described his work, which he terms “hybrids,” as “an exploration of a hypothetical conversation between Donald Judd and Agnes Martin.” Constructed from box-like aluminum fabrications that are then patinated by repeatedly baking the finish, Morrison’s “hybrids” are graphic sculptural compositions that function visually as paintings. Morrison characterizes his work as “Human Minimalism.” He believes the “fusion of surface and medium is an applicable metaphor for the human condition.” For Morrison, the physical property of the metal boxes suggests human scale, while ethereal surfaces suggest the human spirit.

  • Mary Jane Parker  (+)

    Detailed Description : References from history, medicine and botany often inform Parker’s work as she looks for affinities with the natural world and our human desire to organize it. Pairing dissimilar elements together and finding a connection is fascinating to the artist and her current work explores these ideas.

  • Francis X. Pavy  (+)

    Biography : Francis Pavy graduated from the University of Southwestern Louisiana in 1976. He originally worked as a sculptor, opening his Lafayette studio in 1981 and experimenting with glass, drawing and painting. Over time, painting became Pavy's major focus. His work stems from the southern storytelling tradition; common subjects are the folk-life and folklore of local people juxtaposed with images of everyday American life. Pavy is renowned for his colorful, abstract approach to Southern iconography and storytelling.

    Detailed Description : Francis Pavy says, “My work stems from the Southern narrative storytelling tradition. Common subjects for me are the folklife and folklore of the local people juxtapositioned against the fabric of popular American culture. I am particularly interested in music, musicians and the musical traditions of Louisiana and the South. Other subjects that I enjoy interpreting are outdoor activities such as hunting and fishing, Southern mysticism and religion, Mardi Gras, myths, romance and personal experiences.” Francis Pavy’s canvasses vibrate with life and musical rhythm. The abstract dimensions in his works are always profoundly grounded in Louisiana motifs and culture.

  • Robert Polidori  (+)

    Biography : Robert Polidori was born in 1951 in Montreal, Quebec. He moved to the United States when he was ten and briefly lived in New Orleans in his teenage years. He now lives in New York City. He is considered one of the world’s leading architectural photographers. His photographs of neglected and estranged cities including Chernobyl, Havana and New Orleans in the aftermath of Katrina have received worldwide acclaim. He is the author of several books, most recently Parcous Muséologique Revisté, an epic three volume collection of his Versailles published in 2009 by Steidl. He has been awarded the Alfred Eisenstaedt Award for Magazine Photography in 1999 and 2002 and the Word Press Award for his coverage of the Getty Museums construction in 1998.

    Detailed Description : Considered one of the world’s leading architectural photographers Robert Polidori creates meticulously detailed, large-scale color photographs that transcend the limits of pure architectural photography. He is fascinated by the remnants and traces of life that he finds scattered in hallways, left in back rooms and worn on facades. His quietly expressive photographs portray the rich colors and textures of neglected and estranged cities, including Chernobyl, Versailles, Havana and most recently New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Through the photograph’s ability to mummify the present moment, Polidori’s work eschews nostalgia in favor of the poignancy of absolute reality.

    Detailed Description : Jim Richard’s oil paintings are executed with uncommon elegance and subtlety and are in the long tradition of the rendering of domestic interiors. Richard creates a unique, private universe with its own instantly recognizable mixture of wild imagination and rigorous law and order. The artist’s treatment imbues his period rooms with social ironies often by providing a melancholy yet trenchant social parody through the imposition of startlingly modernist sculpture into beautiful yet disturbing settings. Richard freely mixes styles and aesthetics: the high with the low, the pretentious with the sincere, the mundane with the exotic.

  • Ersy  (+)

    Biography : Ersy was born and raised in New Orleans. She currently lives, and works out of a studio, in her childhood home – a 180-year old house on Esplanade Avenue in the Vieux Carré. Ersy received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the California Institute of Arts and studied as well at Bard College, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art and Tulane University. She apprenticed with both Enrique Alférez and William Ludwig, two prominent New Orleans sculptors.

    Detailed Description : Ersy is revered for her work rooted in precise craftsmanship of materials including bronze, silver and wood. Scale, perspective and presentation play critical roles. The desired effect is that the viewer’s own size and relation to the piece become questioned. The artist’s passion is self-evident. Her unique aesthetic is part taxidermy, part reliquary and incorporates elements of surrealism in a visual poetry that often references the pageantry and traditions of New Orleans. Based on her belief that the South has a macabre sense of humor, she anticipates that her work evokes both happiness and sadness.

    Detailed Description : John Scott passed away in September, 2007 at the age of 67. He was born in New Orleans and raised in the lower 9th Ward. John Scott’s earliest work drew on Christian imagery but later, particularly in his sculpture and prints, he focused on African, African-American, Caribbean and Creole cultures. Throughout his life his work was influenced by the blues and jazz musical traditions. In the 1980s his boldly painted sculpture in metal and wood included kinetic components. In 2003, John Scott created a remarkably prescient series of woodblocks that anticipated the urban catastrophe that would befall his beloved New Orleans in August, 2005.

    Detailed Description : Allison Stewart achieves a delicate balance between representation and abstraction. The dynamic equilibrium in her work serves as a metaphor for her concerns. Allison Stewart is continuing her investigation into the conditions that have resulted in the loss of wilderness areas, particularly the fragile Louisiana coastline. The artist addresses the precarious balance between Man and Nature and the need to record the moments preceding the changes, the moments before the balance of life is altered irrevocably.

    Detailed Description : Using an insider's bag of tricks and trade lingo, Waters celebrates the excess of the movie industry. Word and image play permeate Waters' work, and the movie industry and its various sleights of hand are a common target. Always ambitious and playful, some of the works are condensed narratives or "little movies” as Waters calls them. Waters wickedly juxtaposes images from films and television that he captured by photographing his television set as they play. His approach originated with a desire to retrieve stills from his own movies and developed into an appreciation for the overlooked and misrecalled.

Her mastery of color and tonality is profoundly apparent in her work.

    Detailed Description : Exploration is at the core of Edward Whiteman’s creative process. Drawing on ideas and motifs from the environment and from objects both natural and man-made which are modified by time, weather and use, the artist constructs paintings from paper and canvas, fusing elements into commanding primal images. Materials and texture and muted color images integrated in the ground are the cornerstone of his work. Whiteman achieves his unique surfaces by manipulating the material in every manner possible, soaking, crumbling, and embedding the paper with color until a complete new object is born. His irregularly shaped wall pieces unite simple yet powerful forms with seductive color. In his creations the paper does not function as a surface for the work but actually becomes the work itself.
