FEATURED ARTIST: Leo Fitzmaurice
Leo Fitzmaurice’s work usually begins with an observation of a thing or a situation that springs out at him, unsolicited. Although it is often unclear initially, these things or situations do appear to be trying to say something. He then records the observations as truthfully as possible, in the form of: photographs, diagrams, and written descriptions, and then waits – sometimes for years—for a way forward to become apparent. He feels that every one of these encounters is unique and needs to be treated as such; the way forward is not prescribed in terms of his process, but each time he tries to be true to the potential set in motion by the original observation.
Leo Fitzmaurice was born in Shropshire, England, in 1963 and now lives and works in Merseyside.  He studied Fine Art at Leicester Polytechnic, Liverpool Polytechnic, and Manchester Metropolitan University. He has most recently shown his work as part of Futbol, The Beautiful Game, LACMA LA, and a solo show /_\ at The Sunday Painter in London.

READING ROOM: 
Keiichi Tanaami, Hop Step Jump (CaRTe bLaNChe and Nieves Books, 2011). 
From Nieves:

Hop Step Jump brings together portraits of colorful, eccentric figures that interpret “Life and Hereafter”, essential truth and source of inspiration to Keiichi Tanaami. Tanaami’s vivid and highly surreal drawings are often considered psychedelic. However, a closer look reveals that his drawings go far beyond psychedelic tropes. They have their roots in his tense personal recollections: memories, dreams and nightmares.

Read about Keiichi Tanaami’s involvement in the upcoming SC exhibition Puddle, Pothole, Portal (October 2, 2014 - January 5, 2015) here.

FEATURED ARTIST: Nancy Lupo
Nancy Lupo (American, b. 1983) highlights the emotional associations elicited by objects and materials. Her sculptures often have intentionally ambiguous forms that draw directly from quotidian life and yet pervert such notions of the everyday. From some vantage points, Lupo’s floor-based works behave as small-scaled furniture— while from other views, they appear as organic abstractions. Other pieces disrupt known forms like Rubbermaid Brute containers or heart-shaped ice cube trays. Lupo juxtaposes content and form to produce disquieting works, especially by incorporating non-traditional materials like quinoa, chia seeds, nutritional yeast, and kitty litter into her sculpture. 

Lupo’s work is currently on view in “Mineral Spirit” at Laurel Gitlen, New York, though August 8 and was recently seen in “Taster’s Choice” at MoMA PS1, New York “The Stuff That Dreams are Made OF” at C L E A R I N G, New York and “Light Night” at Wallspace, New York. In September she will be presenting “Old Zoo Food” with LA><ART and Michael Thibault Gallery in Los Angeles.

READING ROOM: 
Christina von Rotenhan ed., Richard Tuttle: Prints (JRP Ringier, 2014).
From JRP Ringier:

Since the 1970s, in collaboration with renowned printers and publishers, Richard Tuttle has created a diverse printed oeuvre. In sensitively exploiting the unique possibilities of printmaking to make process, materials and actions visible, Tuttle explores the complexity of printmaking processes. &#8220;Prints&#8221; is the first monograph on Tuttle&#8217;s printmaking. Edited by Christina von Rotenhan this publication introduces not only the artist&#8217;s unique approach to printmaking with profound scholarly essays and catalogue entries for selected prints between 1973 and 2013, but also reveals Tuttle&#8217;s deep interest in the collaborative nature of printmaking.
The timing of the publication is important as Richard Tuttle has also been invited to realize an installation in the Tate’s Turbine Hall. The large-scale installation will provide a powerful counterpoint to the more intimate works from his printed oeuvre.
