Josh Epstein

TotesFerosh

TotesFerosh (Josh Epstein) is a Detroit-born, Chicago-based printmaking artist whose fashion forward characters explore the inaccessible luxuries the masses yearn for. His ‘linocut’ printmaking method involves hand-carving intricate patterns into plates of linoleum, to be printed onto paper or canvas. By fusing distinctive, graphic figures with lavish patterns and backdrops, he delivers a distinctive story of minimalist excess.

Lisa Evans

Glintz Glass

I come to printing from a sculptural point of view. Although I made mostly sculpture when at SAIC, lately I have been teaching myself to print on non traditional materials, primarily glass and clay. My imagery is politically inspired. I have been experimenting with jewelry lately, and love how this miniature art form is a populist vehicle via the internet to reach a wide non-art audience.

Bob Fields

My work is a reflection of the times we live in. Art making/viewing is about being imaginative and open, making connections, and exploring new ideas. It can also be about making a difference in the world. Working with minimal, geometric forms, the message is more often in the title. Process, materials and surface are important. As a sculptor and printmaker… one discipline informs the other through drawing. I find inspiration in the work of: Carl Andre, Phyllida Barlow, Mark Bradford, Thornton Dial, Ellsworth Kelly, Julie Mehretu, Richard Serra, Cy Twombly and Rachel Whiteread.

Chris Gans

Artist statement:
I know that the truth can sometimes be stranger than fiction, and photography began for me as a means to document things I found fascinating. I use photography to show that spectacular things are possible without digital manipulation or fabrication. I strive to show that what we experience everyday is often more remarkable than what one can imagine.

My initial foray into photography was in the setting of forensic science and accurate representation of the truth was the primary goal. This remains paramount in my current work. The images I capture are of items, places or people that appear common at first glance. Upon closer inspection these images transform into something other than the expected. At other times, the goal is to make the viewer believe they’re seeing something quite otherworldly. I want the viewer to feel they’re looking at something from a dream, which becomes even more spectacular when they discover it’s actually something rather ordinary.

Artist’s Bio:

Chris first began taking photographs while studying forensic science in 2001. Largely self-educated, he continues to experiment with new techniques and subject matter. He lives in Chicago with his wife.

Project Statement:

My practice is rooted in re-framing that which reads as neutral, atemporal, and mundane, because now more than ever, nothing is. At Spudnik, I’ll be developing a suite of text-based works on paper that mobilize the gravity of print media to elaborate upon banal phraseology, constructing ordinary ideas as authentic fragments of subjective experience through print. Handmade signage, small-town newspapers, tattoos, and comics, all printed indications of the way people find meaning in everydayness, will serve as key points of reference for me.

Marco Giampaolo

A native of Philadelphia and a graduate of Savannah College of Art and Design, I have been freelancing motion and graphics and compositing in New York, NY for over 10 years. My career has allowed me to use my talents with top studios and agencies such as Shilo, The Mill, Superfad, CHRLX, Stardust, Gretel as well as working on campaigns for Nike, Netflix, HBO, Cartoon Network, and Samsung.

Born in the suburbs of Philadelphia and a graduate of The Savannah College of Art and design, I left New York City in early 2015 to move to Chicago to explore and experience everything the windy city has to offer.

Anna Rae Gilbert

Anna Rae Gilbert was born in Northwest Indiana, attended The School of the Art Institute of Chicago from 1997 – 2000, and finished her undergraduate degree in Interdisciplinary Art at Herron School of Art and Design in 2007.   She continued with her academic career at Maine College of Art and acquired an MFA in 2009.   Since then, she has retained a spirited studio practice and a distinctive signature thread throughout her entire body of work.  Each piece is assembled with thoughtfulness  and delicate care.

Her work is informed by an interest in architecture as a living organism, the evolution of personal and objective narrative in dwellings, and a playfulness in composition.  In each piece, there are equal parts sincerity, provocation and dry humor. She has tried to categorize the thread within each work and the category she drew up was Intuitional Abstract. Her line and palette are driven with sentimentality. Tapping into emotion, nostalgia, and capturing a heightened occasions.  Her paintings and prints become a souvenir and her way of offering those two dimensional and extraordinary moments.

Allie Hasson

I’m a stationer and artist living and working in Chicago. I grew up in the Blue Ridge Mountain region of Virginia, where I dream of someday building a tiny A-frame cabin. My recent years working at Smithsonian’s National Postal Museum and a few enduring pen pal relationships led me to my current state of being obsessive about creating beautiful objects of communication, fine art and epistolary.
