Emil Alzamora b.1975 Lima, Peru and raised in Boca Grande, Florida and Mallorca, Spain. Sculpting career he started in the Hudson Valley working with Polich Art Works in 1998. Since his departure from P.A.W. in early 2001, he has produced his work full-time and shown regularly through-out the United States and Europe. He currently lives and works in Beacon, NY.

The human form is a constant within my work. I often exaggerate or distort it to reveal an emotional or physical situation, or to tell a story. Limitation and potential are as human as the flesh, yet hardly as tangible. In my works, I strive to make visible this interaction.

Yoshitoshi Kanemaki born 1972 in Chiba Prefecture, Japan is a sculptor who chisels and morphs dual characters from blocks of life-sized camphor wood.

My sculpture questions “What is life?” “What is death?”
I know there is no clear answer, but again today I carve while asking, “Memento mori?”
I used Japanese wood carving techniques to express the western theme of “Memento mori”.

Featured Curator of the Week: Philip Intile [pi-slices]

I am Philip. I am based a little while out of Vancouver, Canada. pi-slices is the GIF-a-day project I started in April after being inspired by a whole slew of Tumblr artists, most notably Beeple and Angulargeometry. I started creating basic Cinema 4D animations in late 2012 but decided to seriously pick up the program this year. I have been posting my daily animations for more than 100 days now and don’t plan on stopping any time soon. Many of my animations are tests of features I haven’t tried yet or ideas that pop up in my head throughout the day. I am inspired by simple geometric shapes, optical illusions and minimalism.
