SADIE BENNING
 
Here's a preview of new works that will be on view later this month.
Sadie was featured in the most recent rendition of the Greater New York show at MoMA PS1. Recurring every five years, the exhibition has traditionally showcased the work of emerging artists living and working in the New York metropolitan area. Bringing together emerging and more established artists, the exhibition occupies MoMA PS1's entire building with over 400 works by 157 artists.

Benning is known for experimental video narratives that explore aspects of identity, memory, and loss. But the act of drawing is also an important part of the artist's practice, and Benning has made very strong recent forays into abstract painting. She studied at Bard College and has received many awards, including the Wexner Center Residency Award in media arts, National Alliance for Media Arts and Culture Merit Award, and the Los Angeles Film Critics Circle Award. Benning's work has been exhibited at the New Museum in New York, the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston, and the Wexner Center for the Arts, among others. She has been featured in several Whitney Biennials and has received grants and fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and National Endowment for the Arts.

Sadie Benning, The Owl and the King, mixed media and wood, 2015

The content of her latest work is best expressed by the physicality of the paintings. Each element of Benning's highly constructed work is cut from a larger piece of wood; layers of aqua-resin are applied to the forms, which are then sanded and molded, and finally fit back together to form the final composition. Layers of psychological and physical affect are built up through this process.

DAVID HOCKNEY
 
David Hockney, Yosemite II, October 16th 2011, 
iPad drawing printed on four sheets of paper, mounted on four sheets of Dibond, edition of 12
 
A new series of iPad prints by David Hockney has just been released. These new works made at Yosemite National Park in California consist of 24 different standard sized iPad drawings printed on paper (edition of 25) and 5 large iPad drawings printed on paper and mounted on dibond (edition of 12). 
 
David Hockney, Untitled No. 9 from The Yosemite Suite, 2011, iPad drawing printed on paper, edition of 25
 
Mr. Hockney uses the Brushes app, a stylus and a digital inkjet printer that takes 20 minutes to print each large page. He's known for drawing and painting outdoors, and the iPad has simplified that process. These color prints are taken directly from the iPad. Created in 2011, some took two or three days to draw, but they were all drawn knowing they would be printed bigger.

Hockney has long been interested in the technology of art and using new media to make art. He wrote a book about evidence that the old masters used devices like a camera lucida. He has used Polaroid film, color photocopiers and fax machines, and in 2009, began sending friends daily drawings of flower bouquets made on his iPhone.

There are also videos available, using the playback feature of the Brushes app, showing him creating the drawings, which he has said were the first time he viewed himself making art. 
Act quickly if you're interested as there is limited availability and these amazing prints sell out fast.
