Lotte Geeven

Soda Palm Suite, Installation, 2011

Lotte Geeven (1980) is a multi-media artist from Amsterdam creating tailor-made portraits of sovereign places. These simple portraits with a graphical character aim to envelope the magic of autonomy and explore complex matter & power beyond our control related to a specific place. For example The sound of the earth – a sound recording from the deepest open hole in the planet- is a portrait of the abstract deep earth. Or the work Sovereign – an upside down Jaguar spinning on it’s back in slow motion in an empty parking lot- is an exploration of the ambiguous character of this sovereign location.

Clark Gordon Allen

Clark Gordon Allen is an artist hailing from the California Bay Area, transplanted to New Orleans in 2011. He works pseudonymously under the name Sink Stuart- a matter indebted entirely to the fact that his proper name presented in any order remains utterly “un-googleable” and that this loathe adjective, a phonetic baby word, commands an awkward modern precedence. His photography and illustrations, generally focus on modern American convenience, sloth, and tendencies toward low moral altitude, blending misanthropy with the absurd. His work has been published in The SF Bay Guardian, The Stranger, and Maximum Rock n Roll, has been exhibited in San Francisco, Seattle, and New York City, and he has fallen into the ever expanding group of artists who have had their designs appropriated by Urban Outfitters.

Alli Miller and Trey Burns

Alli Miller (b. 1985, New York) is an artist and designer working between Brooklyn and New Orleans. Alli’s work is premised on the investigation of liminal moments to underscore the psychosexual and relational aspects of display and consumerism. As material, she utilizes voices and powers surrounding the artwork: for example, the pedestal, the ad space, the archive. In the ritual of her practice, she invents and draws upon systems of mythology to contextualize production, while employing the faculty of humor to compose material slippage. Alli received a BFA from Cooper Union in 2008 and studied with visiting artist Marjetica Potrč at the Fondazione Antonio Ratti (Como, Italy) in 2006.

Tameka Norris

Final Performance YSOA Manifesto For Rob Storr, 2012

Tameka’s work in many ways encapsulates and represents the relationship between the multi-generational, existing black communities and the New Orleans “Transplants.” Her time away from the city has allowed her to see from a different perspective the -sometimes strange- ways in which these communities engage with each other. Her liberty to speak in a tongue-in-cheek manner about something that is so commonly the elephant in the room, is part of what makes her work challenging for everyone who sees it, from every demographic. It is this type of challenging, sometimes subversive and passive-activist work that May gallery & residency wants to foster as the gallery & residency program develops.

Nicolas Sassoon

FAVOURITE #1, inkjet print on PMP3 paper, 48x62" 2011. Western Front booth @ The Fair, Waldorf hotel, Vancouver BC.

The work of Nicolas Sassoon makes use of various computer-based aesthetics to generate fantasized visions of architectures, landscapes and domestic environments. While most of Sassoon’ s work is published online through the format of animated gifs, the artists has in collaboration with other artists, architects, curators, music producers, and fashion designers, materialized this web-based practice in a diverse range of mediums such as sculpture, prints, textiles, and site-specific installations. Sassoon’ s work often explores the material application of immaterial concepts, through a practice that investigates the manner in which virtual spaces and thinking can (or cannot) be inscribed within the physical realm.
Nicolas is a member of the online collective Computers Club. Nicolas has shown in various international venues and events such as the Miami Art Fair (US), the Tokyo Art Fair (JP), Today Art Museum (CN), Portland Art Museum (US), Cincinnati Art Museum (US), 319 Scholes (US), Eyebeam (US), Every Letter in the Alphabet (CA), Charles H.Scott Gallery (CA), Western Front (CA), TINBOX Contemporary Art Gallery (FR), LMD Galerie (FR), the Berlin Fashion Week (DE), and MU Eindhoven (NL).
