Often life-sized in scale, the surfaces of his works are painted matte black to provide contrast and to highlight the drawn-line element. Once installed, light casts dramatic shadows on the walls, adding volume and depth. Buckner is a professor emeritus of Pierce College in Tacoma, Washington and has taught sculpture at a collegiate level for over 25 years. He currently lives and works in Southampton, NY. Ramsey Dau: Highlighted in Modern Painters 25 Artists to Watch December 2013 and is currently living in Los Angeles. 'My work is really about tension,' says Dau, a largely self-taught painter. He has painted small, highly detailed street scenes of the urban landscape-kung-Fu studios or the El Chubasco bar in Echo Park-as well as neo-Pop canvases that combine politically charged text-shout-outs to Grover Norquist and Ruth Bader Ginsburg-with images of Homer Simpson and Mickey Mouse. Kim Gottlieb-Walker is an American photographer living and working in Los Angeles, CA. Over the past 45 years, she has built a distinctive portfolio that includes some of the most notable musicians and personalities of the '60s and '70s, including her candid photographs of Bob Marley and other iconic members of the Reggae movement. Many of her photos are in the current Bob Marley Collectors Edition of Rolling Stone Magazine. Dana Louise Kirkpatrick is known for her bold, large-scale paintings and drawings which reference themes such as popular culture, religion, war, race, poverty, love and sex. Kirkpatrick's sure, confident line work oscillates between being hard and dark or shaky and scrawling, dependent on the attitude of each piece. She studied Fine Arts at Georgetown University, graduating with honors in 2001 and receiving the DaVinci Medal for Excellence in Studio Art and the Misty Dailey Award for Outstanding Work in Studio Art. Kirkpatrick's work is in a large number of important private collections. Victor Matthews's paintings and sculptures convert urban city street grids into metropolises of softened-white, celebrating what has been and what can still be.

His work has been exhibited in numerous solo exhibitions in the US and abroad, including the 48th Venice Biennale, Museum Sala Uno (Rome), the Boca Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum (Venice) and The Sculpture Center (New York). His work can be found in museums and important private collections worldwide. Brendan Murphy's work focuses on the genuine cultivation of beauty by utilizing color and movement to confront life's experiences. Working primarily with large format canvas, Murphy's paintings display an effortless blending of gouache, oil, and acrylic paint to create floating backgrounds, moving pieces, and a push/pull multi-dimensional visual experience. Murphy has shown his work in Los Angeles, New York, Miami, Calgary, Houston, and Buenos Aires. His work can be seen in over 500 private and public art collections internationally. Bernie Taupin: Stemming from his world famous career as a lyricist Taupin incorporates words and language in to his artistic works. Taupin has no set pattern or definitive style. He claims it is hard to conform when there are so many options. Taupin sees his art as a visual extension of what he has spent his life creating through words 'The imagination, in my estimation, is the most powerful tool the artist possess enabling us to conjure up beautiful distraction for the ears and eyes.' He has been busy touring with his art exhibitions all across the US. Taupin born in the United Kingdom currently resides in California. His works are included in many significant collections worldwide. Federico Uribe is a conceptual artist resorting to the language of pop art through the use of objects of daily life. He creates sculptures, which are not sculpted but constructed, and weaved, in all kinds of different ways, curious and unpredictable, repetitive and almost compulsive. They follow the classics canons of figurative and abstract art, but the result is absolutely unusual, whimsical, of enormous efficacy and communicability. Federico Uribe has had over 20 solo shows to date, including exhibitions in London, Padova, Italy, his hometown of Bogota and his 2013 installation, 'Fantasy River' at the Hudson River Museum in New York.
