Characterized by both a profound fascination with the methodology of the creative process, and with the mechanisms of image reproduction and dissemination, Lyle Starr’s ongoing oeuvre has rightfully garnered him acknowledgment as a distinctive artistic personality. Utilizing popular culture’s constant flow of throw-away imagery, his work locates and portrays us in today’s multimedia world. His colorful universe draws from everyday sources such as newspaper supplements, holiday wrapping papers, catalogues, and picture books. Starr successfully brings to light the primacy of these simple and oft-ignored sources, further manipulating form and subject through reproduction, organization, and meticulous application in both his paintings and drawings.

Some of Starr’s most recent work, such as 2009’s “Death,” “Dread,” and “Panic,” were prompted by radio news coverage of tragic world events and reveal mass-communication’s capacity to elicit emotion and image through language. His previous exhibitions include: Martos Gallery, New York (2009, 2008, 2002, 2001, 2000); Dieu Donne Papermill, New York (2005); “Score: Action Drawing”, White Columns, New York (2004); “Años Luz”, Instituto Oscar Dominguez, Tenerife, Spain (2000); “Current Undercurrent”, Brooklyn Museum of Art, New York (1997).

His drawings and paintings are in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Guggenheim Museum, and the Glenstone Museum in Potomac, Maryland.

American artist Mark Dion is known for his pioneering and original use of scientific presentations in his installations. A major figure in the contemporary art world, his works have been featured internationally at the Tate Gallery, the Museum of Modern Art, and in the PBS series Art21. He teaches at Columbia University in the Visual Arts department.

Dion develops large sculptural works and installations that investigate perceptions of the natural world. In his PBS Art21 series, Mark has commented, “The job of the artist is to go against the grain of dominant culture, to challenge perception and convention.” He often uses found objects, in particular, cabinets modeled on Wunderkabinetts of the 16th century, to bring together unusual combinations and specimens. His art challenges our preconceived knowledge about nature, which is often rooted in the authoritative role of the scientific voice in contemporary society.

Mark Dion received his BFA and honorary doctorate from the University of Hartford, School of Art. He has received numerous awards, including the ninth annual Larry Aldrich Foundation Award (2001). He has had major exhibitions at the Miami Art Museum (2006); Museum of Modern Art, New York (2004); Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art, Ridgefield, Connecticut (2003); and Tate Gallery, London (1999). “Neukom Vivarium” (2006), a permanent outdoor installation and learning lab for the Olympic Sculpture Park, was commissioned by the Seattle Art Museum.

Swiss-born, Los Angeles-based artist Francesca Gabbiani’s vibrant gouache on paper and cut-paper collages are often filled with animals, insects, flowers, birds, and figurines. A prominent figure in the contemporary art world, she has been featured in Interview and frieze magazines as well as at leading institutions like the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Geneva, Switzerland.

Gabbiani’s complex, densely layered works create impact through vivid colors, intricate strokes, and focus on vacancy. Her collages often build from an open central space, which is both captivating and reflective. The viewer is confronted with the possibility of entering the void, filling it with personal reflections and narratives.

Francesca Gabbiani studied at the École Supérieure des Beaux Arts (Geneva, Switzerland) and received her MFA from the University of California, Los Angeles. She has shown nationally and internationally at Marianne Boesky Gallery (New York), Patrick Painter Gallery (Los Angeles), Sara Meltzer Gallery (New York), Lora Reynolds Gallery (Austin), Monica de Cardenas (Switzerland), FLAG Art Foundation (New York), the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (Geneva, Switzerland) and the Museum of Modern Art (New York). Her artworks are part of the permanent collections at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York), Museum of Modern Art (New York), and Museum of Contemporary Art (Los Angeles).

New York-based artist Margaret Lanzetta’s intricate paintings are characterized by contrasting elements inspired and adapted from her many travels. Natural botanical silhouettes, architectural forms, and saturated color act as cultural and historical references to India, Syria, Morocco, Italy, and the American West. With varying mediums from silkscreen, digital technology, oil paint, and enamel to acrylic, Margaret imprints her visual associations onto wooden or canvas surfaces by employing rubbing and stamping techniques referencing both mechanical reproduction and artistic traditions of the past. Paralleling Warhol’s forays into seriality, patterns migrate, collide, and reappear from painting to painting. Intense hues of color chosen for their spiritual significance or universal acknowledgement within the industrial world meld with geometric contours and single-motifs in a seemingly insistent repetition to create a new vocabulary. Inherent to Margaret’s practice, repetition is used as a pervasive theme to explore larger issues of language, spirituality, and cultural migration. As each of her multi-layered paintings is created to be one part of a collective series, the viewer is granted a concentrated and unique visual experience.

Margaret Lanzetta studied at Tyler School of Art (Italy), the Skowhegan School (Maine), and received her MFA in Painting from the School of Visual Arts (New York). Margaret’s work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions at Allegra La Viola Gallery (New York), Kenise Barnes Gallery (New York), The Drawing Center (New York), APT Gallery (London), and Weatherspoon Art Museum (North Carolina). She has been honored in receiving an Arts For Transit Public Commission for the New York City subway system, a National Endowment for the Arts Grant, two Fulbright Senior Research Fellowships (Germany, India, and Syria), and several MacDowell Colony Fellowships. Margaret’s sculptures and paintings are part of the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art (New York), the British Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, The Fogg Museum, The New York Public Library, and Yale University Art Gallery.
