ALINA VERGNANO

CH.89: If you were to categorize or describe the style of your artwork, what would it be and why? AV: The best hope I have for my work is actually to escape categorization. That is one of the reason why I try to use different materials and media in my practice, as they always reveal […]

JENNY GRAY

CH.89: If you were to categorize or describe the style of your artwork, what would it be and why? JG: I make contemporary abstract paintings.
