Eric Nyquist is an American artist working in Los Angeles. After graduating from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, he began a career as a working artist and illustrator. His body of work includes meticulous drawings, paintings, and collages that merge the organic and the industrial.
Nyquist chooses the line as his tool in creating dense narratives so detailed they straddle the representative and the abstract. His work disrupts stereotypes and forces the viewer to go beyond simply “looking” at things. Each drawing asks us to see analytically and not just physically.
In a technological age of rapid image making, Nyquist uses classical methods to create contemporary results. From etching to lithography, he upholds the craft of print-making while expanding the possibilities of the medium. The printing process informs his drawings—as he arranges layers and screens of color and texture into each piece.
London based artist Katja Angeli creates poised collages of simplicity and wonderment. Katja’s subtle artworks have gained her a selection for Bloomberg New Contemporaries, as well as being awarded the prestigious Clifford Chance Purchase Prize. Interfering with the digital, Katja’s practice uses traditional hand-made assemblage techniques with digital mark making, printing onto Japanese paper.
“Recently I have been examining ways of deconstructing the digital imprint, reflecting on the relationship between the digital and physical. The digital artwork eradicates the trace of the hand for an image that seems almost too perfect.” Katja Angeli
