Como un secreto se seduce ... (Like a secret it seduces itself ...) is a mysterious and alluring work by Luis Gonzalez Palma. It belongs to the Artist's Hierarchies of Intimacy series from 2005, and is easy to love. Its brilliance is characteristically matched by its intended imperfections. This is a classic treatment of the artist's double-edged approach to the human experience. This elegant and opulent set of rooms is occupied by a solitary object, a bed. Usually a symbol of comfort, relaxation, sleep, or more intimate acts, this bed is split, and thus becomes a contradiction of itself. The tension in this work is curious; is it reconciling itself or entering a more permanent state? The answer lies with the viewer.Read More

Untitled (Woman Standing on Table) by Luis González Palma | Kodalith, Red Paper & Gold Leaf Embedded in Resin | 27 x 37.5 in. | $10,000
As with all of Palma's work this piece exists in its own duality. It is both golden and dark. It shines- the gold is warm and luminous, and it sinks- the shadows and imagery are both rather dark.Read More
Matt Eich's work has had an impressive wave of attention in recent months with major editorials in CNN, The New Yorker, Huffington Post, Photograph Magazine, and Photo District News. His monograph released with Swiss publisher Sturm & Drang this October has already sold out. While much of Eich's work is gruff, there are also some soft and poetic images to be had from the oeuvre. We suggest a selection of those works here.Read More
Estamos Buscando A (We Are Looking For) was just named to the Paris Photo | Aperture Foundation PhotoBook Award shortlist. This is the last in a trio of books the Artist has made on the US|MX border, or perhaps better said, the grey area that encompasses the region, physically and psychologically.Read More
Converging Territories #13 | Edition #9/15
Les Femmes du Maroc #1 | Edition #1/15
These two exceptional samples of the Moroccan-born, New York based artist's work is exquisite. It is deeply personal, detailed, and labor intensive. The artist spends months on fabrics and hours with subjects, covering them all in a text of Arabic written with henna. The text is the artist’s own life story- her diary literally covers the scenes. The Artist has exhibited widely, is in numerous international museum collections, and has been written about extensively.

The relevance of objects is being reconsidered today, but it is wrong to disregard collecting artworks as hierarchical, and reductive to dismiss it as an indulgence of personal vanity. Collecting is a vital aspect of culture, and I argue for engagement, especially to Millennials. Yes, some acquire for investment and vanity, but most real Artists survive on too little patronage, and most real Collectors engage the practice as an art form in itself. Collecting is a way to express personal philosophy.
The Artist (particularly contemporary) represents the sort of things Millennials champion: an unfettered voice, the hand made|locally produced object, the freedom of individualism, and quest for self-awareness.Read More
