Andrew Chan

"Boogie Down"
 11" x 15"
ink and water color
part of "end of days" hipster apocalypse series

Australian artist Andrew Chan has a B.A. in Architecture from RMIT in Melbourne and an M.A. in art from NYU. Based in New York since 1999, he has received grants from the Pollock Krasner Foundation and the New York Foundation for the Arts, and his work been featured in TIME, the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times and on CNN. In 2011 his work can be seen at the Bronx Museum as part of Aim 30 and at Randall’s Island where he has installed a 15foot high sculpture on the grounds. His essay on TV cooking shows as pornography is included in The Gastronomica Reader (University of California Press, Feb. 2010) and was presented at the College Arts Association conference in Chicago and at the Gourmet Voice conference in Cannes. 

In my drawings, the basis of all my works, I use line to assimilate and create representations—in some cases, bordering on caricatures—of people and objects where the form of the subject is distorted merging the organic and the inorganic creating anthropomorphic beings set in distorted cityscapes. In creating my works I gather information from the media, along with documenting my subject with a sketchbook and/or camera, the results of which are fused together with my own remembered and actual experiences.

Kira Greene


In my recent paintings and drawings, I depict images of food surrounded by complex patterns that represent the plurality and the multiplicity of my identity.  I paint estheticized food found in glossy coffe table cook books and magazines as well as everyday food that I serve for my friends and family.  The patterns are derived from historical fabrics used in women’s fashion and domestic interiors, which are symbolic of the roles woman have had in various cultures.  The patterns from both eastern and western cultures are the background that enhances and suffocates the food.  The food is the body and the surrogate for the desire to consume and control women.  The resulting images are self-portraits that represent the plurality and multiplicity of my identity as an Asian-American immigrant woman. 
Densely packed and precisely hand-painted patterns simultaneously create and interrupt the space where the still-life is presented.  The rhythm of the patterns is echoed in the composition of the still-life and natural patterns found in the food. A complicated interweaving of foreground and background, created by patterns, icons, and still-lifes painted in many different styles and mediums, generates a confounding spatial ebb and flow and increase the spatial tension. The surface of my painting is varied to creat the maximum complexity and to enhance the sensuality of the paint while the divergence of styles imbues the image with collage-like dissonance.  The result is a work that attracts viewers with overwhelming sensuality and the beauty while simultaneously disorients and repels them.
While the images of the food are reminiscent of the Dutch still-life tradition, the divergent styles, collage-like dissonance and the breaking of the picture planes acknowledge the practice of painting in a post-modern era.  At the same time, through a labor-intensive process, I cast a critical eye on the mechanical reproduction and proliferation of imagery in our daily lives.

Nogle has taken the advice and produced the object described in a literal fashion.

Marco Menendez

oil on aluminum
16” x 24”

Estimated value: $500

In this particular series, I am exploring the routine phenomena of the urban landscape at night: street lights, car lights, florescent lights, light emanating out of peoples’ homes and all the glow and shadow that these things produce.  The intangibility of these elements plays a major role in my work.  I am attracted to the way in which they can take over objects and change, not only our perceptions of their physical make-up, but our whole experience with them.  I first photograph and then paint these settings.  I see this practice as a way of distancing the image from its original reality and enhancing it with further layers of illusion.  

Marco Menendez holds a BFA in Painting from Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles.  He spends his time driving the open road, visiting obscure historic sites and “chatting it up” with the local residents.  When he is not doing this, he lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.

Hypnogog, 2010
graphite on paper
9.5" X 6"

Hypnopomp, 2010
graphite on paper
9.5" x 6"

Artist’s Statement
As a sculptor and conceptual crafter my process involves removing the functionality from vintage chairs, transforming their utility through a complex process of cutting, altering, sanding and reassembling.  I am attracted to the chair as a medium because it is suggestive of the human body--and the female form in particular--due to its connotations of domesticity, utility, and the possession of both emotional and physical attributes.

In selecting a chair, I look for lines and forms that resemble the human form such as soft curves, delicate joints, and visually appealing textures. My process involves skewing or exaggerating these features in a way that upsets or distorts reality, alternately evoking disquiet, sentimentality, and the sense of the strangely familiar.  I am interested in generating emotion by exposing the underlying structure and raw material of my subjects. Recently I have used these chair forms to examine the body in public space and how the body navigates and communicates when space is compromised.

Noncommittal, Antipainting (Unwelcoming, Oppressive and Uncharismatic -- Central Coast, #1),
acrylic, graphite, and ink on polyflax
18 ¾ x 23 ¾ in.

Starting bid $200

All of these paintings are titled “Noncommittal, Antipainting …” as a means of first expressing my hesitation about making paintings, and in order to communicate that the work is not about painting or making images, but, rather about using images.  I paint each one twice, and they are all black and white.  First, I make the initial painting, then paint out some of the image with white.  Then, I try to make the same painting again.  Each is from a series of ‘California Landscape Paintings.’  The parenthetical parts of the titles use words used to describe California by early explorers/settlers followed by a descriptor of the place the image depicts (ie., places I’ve surfed, hiked, etc.)

Artist Statement:

My work addresses the narratives of American culture propagated through the imagery consumed from mass media and through the internet.  I am interested in the way ideas, both real and fictitious, are communicated and contribute to a larger sense of what it means to be a contemporary American.  Growing up in the mid-western rust-belt, with its decay and, paradoxically, its rapid suburbanization, I saw the unraveling of the American dream for my parents and those around us.  Wood paneling in trailer homes, giant parking lots, and conversely, elaborate, wealthy interiors all become portents.  Using this material, I create collages by photo-transferring appropriated found images; fragmenting and reconstituting a new image from multiple sources.  I use repetition and omission as ways of changing the context and meaning, allowing for more ambiguous interpretations.  What emerges from all of this is an American counter-narrative, searching for meaning and steeped in contradictions.
