Gianluca Franzese

Gianluca Franzese “This collection reflects my belief that beauty is a process that happens over time, with a focus on underlying patterns and geometries found in nature. The metallic elements in the pieces are sensitive to the temperature of the environment, expressing a particular temperament based on context. This variable response means that the work is always …

Marc Trujillo

Marc Trujillo “My aim is to create work that speaks of the present, yet is also actively engaged with painting’s long history. Light is singularly important for me, as it serves to organize the work and is the one element that all aspects of the painting must agree on to convey.” (American, b. 1966) Marc …
