"I started working with electronics at art school in the early 1980s. The people who helped me get
started were students in the faculty of music who had been experimenting with sounds generated by
electronics. Their influence combined with learning about performance artists including Chris Burden and
Vito Acconche, lead me to use the body in combination with sound in my work."
"My use of the body was also strongly informed by working with artists Morry Baden and Roland Brenner
while I was a student at the University of Victoria and later by Charles Ray when I was working on my
master’s at UCLA. The installation came later when I thought I did not enjoy performing so I wanted to
remove my body from my practice. Once my body was out of the work, I realized I liked the tension and
adrenalin I was getting from the performance and my body went back into the work. Now I do both."

"Translated to the city in late adolescence my developing psyche
projected itself eventually onto the life of the streets, parks and
waterways of my neighbourhood and the wider metropolitan scene and
their rich human comedy, as well as on the accumulated 'lumber,' as
Kavanagh called it, hacked out of indiscriminate reading, travel and
random study in the pursuit of that other aspect of the pleasurable
called, for want of a better word, spiritual or perhaps, mythic."

|Gina Werfel (December 2008 issue)
"Natural forces serve as a starting point for my
paintings about space and energy. The
paintings are about a search for balance
between chaos and structure. They speak about
boundaries—between representation and
abstraction, between man-made and natural.
Improvisation is at the root of my practice -
responses to the way a particular color or mark
leads to another decision in the painting."
|Miya Ando (January 2009 issue)
"I work with a number of metal finishing techniques
including patinas, solvents and other chemicals which effect
the colorization of the steel. I also use acids to etch and a
torch to heat and oxidize the surface of the steel. My other
methods include grinding, polishing, burnishing and other
sanding techniques. I work with pigments, most of which
are derived from metals. Finally, I apply multiple coats of
lacquer on the panels."

|Enrique Martinez Celaya (February 2009 issue)
Enrique Martinez Celaya was born in Cuba in 1964 and raised in exile in Spain and
Puerto Rico. He works in painting, sculpture, photography, writing and publishing,
the latter under the auspices of Whale & Star. In his paintings, sculptures,
photographs, and writing - in which he uses everything from oil and feathers to tar
and even his own blood – Martínez Celaya works through ethical, spiritual, and
existential concerns. His work emerges from a philosophical and literary mindfulness
and a commitment to the common origins of art, literature, philosophy and science.
