Supersonic Visits: Michael Uckotter.

Supersonic has been following the work of Maryland Institute College of Art student Michael Uckotter (Previously on Supersonic) for a few years now and we recently jumped at the chance to visit his studio space.  Uckotter is in a self-described “transitional stage” which finds his work seemingly digging into a deeper state of reflection.  You can check out more shots of his studio below:

Supersonic Visits: Lucien Shapiro.

(Photographs by Shaun Roberts)

San Francisco artist Lucien Shapiro (Featured on Supersonic) creates his work by using found material which evolves into artworks such as contemporary tribal masks (such as a recent mask made entirely out of marijuana) or ornate street weaponry.  The resulting body of work is an intelligent thesis on current sociology as well as adding to the age-old saying “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”  Lucien’s sculptures are created piece by piece in his San Francisco studio which Supersonic photographer Shaun Roberts was able to recently visit:

Supersonic Visits: Brett Amory.

(Photographs by Shaun Roberts)

I’ve commented on Brett Amory as being one of the foremost painters of his generation several times and this observation has never been more readily apparent than with his upcoming body of work: “Twenty-Four In London" which opened in London at Lazarides Gallery last night, March 7th.  Brett’s explorations of the contemporary urban sprawl and attempt to collect time are astonishing capsules for future generation’s indulgences into what was, and in this sense Amory is not only a painter but a writer of history.  Supersonic had the chance of documenting his preparations for Twenty-Four In London several weeks ago which I present to you here:

Supersonic Visits: Joel Daniel Phillips.

San Francisco based artist Joel Daniel Phillips creates life-size portraits of homeless individuals.  Often developing friendships with his subjects, he takes their story and molds it into the resulting work.

One such example is the work Phillips is currently working on.  While talking to and photographing the man, the individual asked Phillips if he saw the horse standing behind him.  At that very moment Phillips noticed the scent of alfalfa in the air, a common ingredient in horse feed, and felt the presence of the horse just as the man was seeing it.  For the man’s portrait Phillips has placed a horse into the scene, creating a dimension of surrealism and beauty to the hard truth of the homeless man’s life.

I had the pleasure of visiting Joel’s studio during my stay in San Francisco for SEI3.

Supersonic Visits Jen Mann.

It seems contradictory that Toronto based artist Jen Mann creates such large, metaphorically rich portraits in such a small studio space but perhaps the compression helps the formation of her work, which visually and intellectually can be related to the beauty of diamonds.  Jen, who is currently working on a number of secretive new pieces, took some photographs of her space and some sneak peeks of her new work for Supersonic which you can see below:
