Christopher Milne is a New York-based artist whose formal approach to art making is primarily concerned with painting. The nuanced underpinnings of his work are conceptually driven and through a decidedly self-aware use of artifice, Milne's work touches on themes of identity, superficiality, idealization and fantasy. He earned a Bachelor's degree at NSCAD (Nova Scotia College of Art & Design University) in Fine Arts and Art History, has mounted two solo exhibitions, and has been included in numerous group exhibitions. His work has been featured in the New York Times, Financial Times: How to Spend It, ARTLOG as well as other publications and has been placed in private collections throughout the United States and Europe. Recently, he was a visiting artist at NYU Steinhardt School's Fine Art graduate program. Milne lives and works in New York City and Water Mill, New York.
William Pagano is a New York based artist whose work explores architecture and its primary structural components, including volume, scale and light. Pagano earned a BA in art education from C.W. Post College and a MA in Art, from Long Island University. After 32 years in art education, Pagano has reestablished his studio practice. In 2013, Pagano had a solo exhibition with Sara Nightingale Gallery and has been included in numerous group shows including artMRKT Hamptons 2013. His work was also featured in the 2013 Hamptons Designer Showhouse. Pagano lives and works in New York City and Water Mill, New York.
