In the Studio with Drew Seskunas of SAW.EARTH

At the Counter with the Team Behind Gertie

There are few debates as eternal than the one which pits New York and Los Angeles against one another like two boxers in a ring. Much is made of traffic and weather, flight times to Europe, galleries and museums. And while, decades ago, in Woody Allen’s prime, when his...

The Interrogator with Upstate’s Kalen Kaminski 

In today’s sleek and technological world, a piece of hand-dyed fabric can feel almost like a loaded argument against capitalism.

In the Studio with Pop Artist Todd Gray

When the Pop Art movement came into vogue in the 1950s, it threw the stuffier traditions of fine art into chaos with the introduction of Mass Culture as Subject. It was democratic—some would say vilely so—in its welcoming of color, advertisements, and comic books. Oftentimes the resulting works weren’t...
