  • Robert Otto EpsteinMontclair, NJ

    Robert Otto Epstein (b. 1979) is a New Jersey-based artist whose work is heavily inspired by deconstructionist philosophy, writing, language, and systems, and the way these disciplines intersect. His gridded drawings and paintings began after becoming interested in instructional guides for knitting - the guides provide a coded plan for creation that is divorced from scale or context. Robert’s drawings on paper build up a “scaffolding” of between 23,000 and 38,000 individual, meticulously hand-drawn squares to create works that evoke pixelated JPGs or rich tapestries, finally removing what remains of the grid to bring the patterned object into focus. He studied philosophy and political science at the University of Pittsburgh and law at the University of Durham in the UK.

  • Diana DelgadoNew York, NY

    Diana Delgado (b. 1982) is a painter based in Bronxville, New York. Working primarily in oil paint, Diana's gestural abstract paintings are inflected with accents of representational imagery including architectural elements, and references to childhood such as balloons, ribbons and bows, and Christmas nostalgia. These ornamental items nod to the artist's sense of humor and add levity to the art historical monolith of abstraction. Diana's work is held in private and public collections internationally, and she currently serves on the Board of Directors for Black Ball Projects, a non-profit gallery supporting underexposed artists with mature practices. She holds an MFA from The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, and a BFA from Syracuse University.
