About the Artist:
Argentinian artist Santiago Quesnel’s process is marked by the layered landscape of his hometown. The planes of his paintings shift and envelop the body in warmth as you gaze at his work. The artist is inspired by his memory, photographs of his own, or ones found, and sketches in the moment; but always it is the inspiration of the city that provides the fuel for his practice… the soul for his vision.

About the Artist:
Harper creates lush patterns and shapes that are liquefied through the use of oil paint and medium. His quick brushwork, scraping, and staining generate visually intricate forms that he is able to produce by manipulating paint in its liquid state. Harper mixes his paint with medium that keeps it malleable throughout his process. It is important for his process that the paint stays susceptible to his brush. This means he needs to continuously work on a painting, over the range of at most a week, till it is finished. This creates the same fluidity in his finishing process as in his application.
Harper has employed non-traditional shapes in his painting, such as large standing and spherical works. He does not consider these works as sculptural but rather looks at them as transforming canvases that changes to fit his painting concepts.
