Brian Richer Covered by Gia On The Move…
Pope Joan was a legendary female Pope who allegedly reigned for a few years some time during the Middle Ages. The story first appeared in 13th-century chronicles, and was subsequently embellished throughout Europe. With works such as the Pope Joan Chair that plays on humour, artist Brian Richer of Castor Design is now making waves with bold statements in the art world.
A central aspect of Richer’s practice is testing the limits of materials, both in terms of their aesthetic and structural properties, as well as their ability to represent and make reference. Richer focuses on the intersection between art and technology. Richer’s understanding of both art history, philosophy, contemporary art, combined with his appreciation of technology, allow him to create objects which elude immediate categorization.
Richer’s works truly blurs the line between the practicality of engineering on one hand, and the indulgence of fine art on the other.

Catherine Howe Featured in Art in America
Catherine Howe solo show featured in the lookout by editor Leigh Anne Miller
Walking a tightrope of figuration and abstraction, Catherine Howe explores in her recent work the Golden Age of 17th-century Dutch still life painting. Without simply reflecting or mimicking the sources, Howe’s dozen medium-size canvases convey their telltale luminous intensity. In addition, the artist’s richly hued, highly textured bravura brushwork and delicate layering highlight the eroticism that is only latent in the work of the Old Masters.
