Rebecca Ward (1984) is my new art obssesion. I have been following her work for a while and I think is time to share her powerful but at the same time delicate universe. She is an artist from Texas based in Brooklyn. She studied Fine Arts in the University of Texas and received her MFA from the School of Visual Arts, New York. Her light color geometrical paintings and her crafty site-specific installations made with tape are strongly influenced by minimalism, abstraction, and arte povera. Frank Stella, Daniel Buren, an Carl Andre are some of the artists that I hear echo in this beautiful work engaged with the exploration of space and color. Also she has one of the best artist statements I have ever read!
She is represented by The Ronchini Gallery.
Luckey Remington (1978) is an abstract artist and musician living in sunny LA with a strong aesthetic eye. His colorful and geometrical artworks are based on a study of repetition and form, an artistic methodology that is shared with his musical background. He creates harmonic structural atmospheres inviting us to wander around his attractive wooden large-scale figures as a way of investigating our relation with space, the presence behind the abscence. He has also collaborated and played the bass with Devendra Banhart. He is definitely one of my favorite arty discoveries!
My methodology is rooted in a systemic, series-driven process that enables me to reduce a visual statement to its most essential form through means of repetition. The compositions fluctuate between organic rounded shapes, and straight-edged angles. Negative space is equally, if not more important than the anchor form itself. Once I arrive at a pictorial arrangement fit for further investigation, I am fueled by an obsessive need to address and record every subtle variation it reveals as I work.
