Joy Garnett has been curating (Night Vision, 2002-03; and Out of the Blue, 2006) and exhibiting her own work. Most recently, she exhibited at P.S.1-MOMA in "That Was Tjen....This is Now." Garnette writes: "My work hovers around the issue of mediation and visual narratives. I am drawn to representations of the "apocalyptic-sublime." My source imagery comes from documentary and news photographs I sample from the internet. Each painting is done in one go, almost like a performance."

In the last year, Erik Sommer has exhibited in "evolution" at the Russ Berrie Gallery in New York and in "PTCC" at the National Museum of Mexican Fine Art in Chicago. For examples of his recent work on canvas and in cement, see www.erikjsommer.com.
Of his work, City College MFA graduate Heeseop Yoon writes, "My work deals with memory and perception within cluttered spaces. I begin by photographing interiors such as basements, workshops, and storage spaces, places where everything is jumbled and time becomes ambiguous without the presence of people. From these photographs I construct a view and then I draw freehand without erasing. As I correct "mistakes" the work results in double or multiple lines, which reflect how my perception has changed over time and makes me question my initial perception. Paradoxically, greater concentration and more lines make the drawn objects less clear. The more I see, the less I believe in the accuracy or reality of the images I draw."
Yoon's most recent exhibitions include "White on White" at the Number 35 Gallery, NYC; "Unreal City" at Gallery Satori, NYC, and "Blank 08" at the Median Art Center, Beijing, China. Yoon lives and works in New York. His website is http://heeseopyoon.com.
