Featured Curator: Justin Ruckman

The artist and painter Eduardo Rodriguez Calzado describes himself as being obsessed with detail, “expressing emotions through the fragmentation of color”. While the human form or elements of human consciousness are often represented in his pieces, he also enjoys starting with more abstract gestures and colors, and letting the narrative unfold organically.

Is it a box? Is it a shelf? No it’s a Cubby.

The Cubby Box-Frame is a newly launched Kickstarter campaign. Made from plastic, the Cubby lets you turn anything and everything in art. Yes even your underwear. Its stowaway lid and window make it super versatile and perfect for all your favourite things. Turn it into a box-frame and show off your collectibles or use it to just add storage space for all of life’s stuff. Create a windowless cabinet for the bathroom or create shelf space of candles and small plants to spruce up a space. The possibilities are endless.

Rogelio Manzo

"…I find a brute yet honest identity of my subjects…” states Rogelio Manzo. His journey as an artist began studying architecture, but the rigidity and formality of architectural practice led him to painting where he creates chaotic, dark and brooding, yet harmonious “portraits”.  His past in architecture is not lost though, as geometric elements sneak into his paintings that are made of resin panels, silk and other fabric. His subjects faces are draped in sweeping swatches of blue, orange and vivid white hues while hints of their personality seep through.
