Adam Beane

!adambeanefreshcuts

Born in Massachusetts, Adam Beane is a sculptor whose work speaks for itself. By 2002, Adam had sculpted the human figure 4 times; twice in high school and twice more in college. From 1999 to 2001 Adam worked in two toy-prototype shops as a machinist where he used a variety of materials to produce everything from toy trucks to squirt guns. In the course of his jobs Adam was occasionally called on to use his burgeoning sculpting abilities to produce renditions of characters from children’s movies and TV shows. That was the extent of his forays into sculpting until 2002, when he had an opportunity to try sculpting sports figures as a freelancer for McFarlane Toys. He immediately took to it and by the end of the year had become one of their top freelance sculptors. Frustrated by the limitations of all sculpting materials available, Adam invented CX5, a tremendously versatile material that handles like clay when warm, but is hard as plastic when cool. CX5 is completely reusable and can be sanded, polished or melted and cast into molds. Sculptor turned entrepreneur, Adam is making the material commercially available by the end of the year. Additionally, Adam will be offering sculpture workshops and instructional videos. (more…)

James Hopkins

James Hopkins 01

British artist James Hopkins is a sculptor based in Guernsey in the Channel Islands. He graduated from Goldsmiths University, London in 2002. Hopkins slyly transforms everyday objects, imbuing them with the power of self-reflexive commentary, converting them into altogether different items, and nudging them towards an impossible state that produces an astonished incredulity in those who behold them. Hopkins’s sophisticated visual illusions are engaging, but his best works also hint at the epistemological uprooting that follows from the discovery that sight, our most relied-upon sense in the gallery, can be untrustworthy. Few contemporary artworks consciously remind us of this fact; Hopkins links it to an examination of his objects’ intrinsic characteristics, and occasionally, to a meditation on the emotional fallout of this and other fundamental instabilities.

Joe Papendick 01

Joe Papendick was born in NYC in 1964 and studied art at Parsons School of Design and Hunter College before moving to St. Louis in 1993. Although primary concerns were always about painting, in 2005 he began designing and welding a series of large abstract bird feeders. Several hundred or so pieces later that work now occupies him full time. (more…)

Kordian Lewandowski 01

I come from Poland. In 2008, I completed my Intermedia studies at the Faculty of Sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdańsk, Poland. I am involved in drawing, sculpture, computer graphics, artistic film, painting, and a bit in music. For a long time I was mostly interested in hyperrealism. My drawings based on photography and printing technology come from that period. So do my spatial “photographic sculptures” – results of the observation of a model from two static points. Currently I’m also into 3D sculptures (Zbrush) and Flash animation. (more…)
