Martin Schoeller

The large scale photographs of Martin Schoeller have developed as one of the most distinctive photographic styles today. The artist produces large format color portrait photographs that are often presented as 4 foot high, tightly cropped images that contain no direct outside point of reference.

Jim Lee

Artist Jim Lee infuses his works with a unique humor that is presented as an abstract solution existing cleverly between sculpture and painting.

Paul Mullins

The visceral paintings and works on paper by artist Paul Mullins seem to pay homage to the rural contentment and simplicity of life as represented by images of dogs, fish and land working people.

Mullins’ new work is a departure from his previous imagery of[.....]

Sigga Bjorg Sigurdardottir

Galerie Adler in New York will present new drawings, animations and an installation in “Paradox Parade,” opening this Friday, featuring Icelandic artist Sigga Bjorg Sigurdardottir.
