Isaac Layman pushes the limits of how a photographic image can be constructed while using his immediate domestic surroundings as subject matter. Layman has exhibited at the Walker Art Center (Minneapolis, MN), deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum (Lincoln, MA), Frye Art Museum (Seattle, WA), Blanton Museum of Art (Austin, TX) and Norton Museum of Art (West Palm Beach, FL), among others. He was awarded the Betty Bowen Award from the Seattle Art Museum and the Contemporary Northwest Art Award from the Portland Art Museum. His work is in many collections including the Walker Art Center (Minneapolis, MN), the Margulies Collection at the Warehouse (Miami, FL), Portland Art Museum (Portland, OR), the Museum of Fine Arts Houston (Houston, TX), and the Minneapolis Institute of Arts (Minneapolis, MN).
Julia Mangold is a Munich-born minimalist sculptor whose work explores shape, form and materiality. Her sculpture and works on paper are at once rigorous and formal, yet also very sensual. Mangold has exhibited nationally and internationally and her work is included in the collections of the Busch-Reisinger Museum, Harvard University (Cambridge, MA), Yale University Art Museum (New Haven, CT), Museum of Fine Arts Houston (Houston, TX), the Museum of Modern Art (New York, NY) and the Deutscher Bundestag (Berlin, Germany). In 2015, Mangold was the subject of a solo exhibition at the Mies van der Rohe Haus in Berlin, Germany.
Jinie Park creates ethereal works on canvas with thinly layered, translucent washes of paint. Through her abstraction she investigates and engages with the history and conventions of painting, applying paint on all sides of her canvas. Born in Seoul, South Korea in 1987, Park received a BFA in Painting at Seoul National University (Seoul, South Korea) in 2011 and an MFA from Maryland Institute College of Art (Baltimore, MD) in 2015. Her work has been shown in 2014 at the Louisiana Biennial Juried Exhibition, School of Design at Louisiana Tech University (Ruston, LA) and in 2010 in a juried exhibition at Weiser Gallery, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Cambridge, MA). Park was awarded the Henry Walters Traveling Fellowship in 2015 and the LeRoy E. Hoffberger Scholarship from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2013. In 2009 she was awarded the Choi Wook-Kyung Prize from Seoul National University.
Matthew Picton’s wall-mounted sculptures of urban environments reconstruct, in paper and vellum, aerial views of city streets and blocks. Unlike street maps, Picton’s representations are at once cartographic, topographical and cultural, incorporating period-specific texts and musical scores. Born in London, England, Picton studied politics and history at the London School of Economics. His artwork is included in the collections of the De Young Museum (San Francisco, CA), the Herbert Museum of Art (Coventry, UK), the Fidelity Bank collection (London, UK), the Stadt Museum (Dresden, Germany) and the New York University Langone Medical Center Collection (New York, NY).
Anna Von Mertens was born in Boston and currently lives and works in New Hampshire. She received her MFA from California College of Arts and Crafts and BA from Brown University. Recent exhibitions include a solo show at Mills Gallery, Boston Center for the Arts (Boston, MA), Rijswijk Textile Biennial, 2013 (Netherlands), 40 under 40: Craft Futures at the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s Renwick Gallery (Washington, DC) and the DeCordova Biennial, 2012 (Lincoln, MA). Von Merten’s work is in the permanent collections of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the Berkeley Art Museum (Berkeley, CA), the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s Renwick Gallery and the Museum of Art at the Rhode Island School of Art and Design (Providence, RI), among other institutions.
