SIMONE SHUBUCK, “(various titles)”, 2006, a suite of lithographs and first prints from the artist, printed by Maurice Sanchez of Derriere l’Etoile Studios, New York City. The portfolio of six lithographs is printed in up to eleven colors on Rives Heavyweight paper in an edition of 40 and co-published by I.C. Editions, Inc, New York City and Derriere l’Etoile Studios.
Simone Shubuck is at the forefront of a growing number of artists making paper their primary medium. Preferring to work on antique papers and stationary, Shubuck creates jewel-like collages using graphite and colored pencil, weaving together imagery inspired by the Viennese Secessionists, Indian miniatures of the Mogul Empire, Graffiti Art, and rap music. The work is obsessive, compulsive, sumptuous, sensual, cerebral, intuitive, and ultimately irresistible.
Simone Shubuck is represented by Zach Feuer Gallery, NYC.

AARON SPANGLER, Sculpture Park, 2006, a woodcut and first print from the artist printed by Maurice Sanchez of Derriere l’Etoile Studios, New York City. Work is printed in silver ink on Arches cover black in an edition of 26 and published by I.C. Editions, Inc, New York City.
A seasoned wood carver, this project represents Aaron Spangler’s first print and woodcut. As noted by Ken Johnson in the New York Times, Spangler “uses his extraordinary technique to elaborate profusely detailed, darkly comic visions of rural Post-apocalyptic ruin...he leaves things a bit rough (creating) a magical tension between the raw material and the epic fantasy”. Spangler’s Sculpture Park is no less a rough place. Here a scrap heap of earlier iconography, burned out cars, downed power lines, and discarded tires, shares ground with Constructivist assemblage, Memorial statuary, and weed infested Horn of Plenty. This Sculpture Park seems located somewhere between memorial garden down on its luck and backyard shrine on the way up.
Aaron Spangler is represented by Zach Feur Gallery, NYC and will be included in the upcoming iteration of the Triumph of Painting at the Saatchi Gallery, London.

JESSICA STOCKHOLDER, With your Salad, 2005 a multiple conceived by the artist of various found materials with original plastic resin addition fabricated by Sculpture House Casting, NYC. Final production by Ian Cooper, Brooklyn.
Jessica Stockholder is trained as both sculptor and painter, each discipline is well represented in With your Salad. Red plastic cooler, brushed aluminum wall sconce, neon extension cord and artistic folly meet in a riot of color, texture, and light.While Stockholder credits a surrealist’s game of chance as the starting point for her work, she proceeds to masterfully weave an inspired web of flotsam and jetsam which she personalizes with a plastic splash of Tropicana Cabana and Lime Green. In the artist’s hands, the commonplace acquires heightened stature while the exotic gains parity with the ordinary. One man’s junk is another’s man’s treasure.
