    2014 WOODSTOCK A-I-R Jessica Vaughn’s practice focuses on creating photographs that serve as a vehicle to communicate her understanding of political narratives in postindustrial cities of the United States. Originally from Chicago, IL and now based in New York, NY, Vaughn holds an MFA from the University of Pennsylvania in Printmaking and Time-Based Media, and a Bachelor of Humanities and Arts from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA. In addition, she participated in the Whitney Independent Study Program at the Whitney Museum of American Art in NYC in 2013. Vaughn’s work has been exhibited at MOMA PS1, Studio Museum in Harlem, and in galleries in both the US and abroad. She has participated in a number of residencies and has been published widely, including in Artforum, The New York Times, Modern Painters Magazine, among others. During her residency, she will photograph the landscape in Woodstock as interrupted by large printed backdrops of urban scenes she creates and places in the background. This juxtaposition serves to highlight the notion that the way we “see” influences how we identify events, places, and things; and how all of this in turn shapes our understanding of political narratives.

      Michael Lam’s delicate watercolors are minimal yet utterly eloquent. Lam practices what he calls “Single Stroke Painting,” in which paint is used almost sculpturally and ink dramatically. He applies just a few large, powerful, unmitigated marks to the page. The brushstroke itself becomes everything: composition, texture, content. In an array of soft grays, the artist’s mark is atmospheric and even takes on an emotional importance. Lam creates single-focus works, in which a brushstroke is centered like a portrait sitter, and also patterned abstracts that showcase his versatility. He dabs, feathers, and streaks his paint down with palpable energy, giving the feeling that the brushstroke is about to speak. Speed and pressure are crucial, combined with the artist's intimate knowledge of ink, watercolor, paper, and brush.

          My work is a practice in education, teaching myself about subjects through the creation of art. I do not set out to make a work for the enjoyment of the viewer–although I hope that the viewer does enjoys the work and gains from it—it isn’t necessarily made for the viewer. The work is made for me to come to a greater understanding of whatever subject I choose through the creative mode of learning. I do not intend to be a teacher, but a student. The sheer act of creating allows me to meditate on and ponder whatever subject it may be that I hope to gain a better knowledge of. Through this act of creation, I am better able to understand the subject on a level that cannot be achieved through written knowledge, meditation or observation alone. The physical act of creating the work brings forth deeper revelations about the subject on which I am working. Many times even after the works are complete, new revelations come forth and new understandings are achieved.

            2014 WOODSTOCK A-I-R Valenzuela situates his creative practice within the contradicting traditions of documentary and fiction through video, photography, and installation he will utilize his new surroundings to photograph constructed narratives, scenes, and stories which point to the tensions found between the individual and communities and build on his continuing investigation of issues surrounding place, geography, and identity. During his residency in 2014 at the Center for Photography at Woodstock, Valenzuela worked on a new series called “Hedonic Reversal” which involves the construction of false "ruins" which are re-investigated through multiple generations of photographing and modifying the installations.

                      Think the only type of artist is the starving kind? That's been a myth since the hot-locks of Lord Byron and the Romantic Era. Didn't know that composer Franz Lizst had fainting fans and security working overtime at his concerts? Charles Dickens wrote serials and got paid well too. When tech is combined with entertainment, you have a roster of SmartyFellas and SmartyGirls who support themselves well with their art income. Meet one of a series of SmartAsses: Writer Matt Lam, a Creative in the SF Bay Area. Norcal represent.
