Frank Benson, Flag (Union Jack), 2013. Favorite To accompany his new work Flag (Union Jack) installed on the roof of the ICA’s Regency building, New York-based artist Frank Benson has created a special limited edition print. Benson’s sculpture reflects the artist’s on-going fascination with the depiction of arrested motion and the use of digital tools in the creation of sculpture. To create the flag, an image of the Union Jack flag was mapped onto a three-dimensional plane created in a computer animation programme. The plane was then subjected to simulated wind and turbulence, and a still from the animation was chosen as the pattern of the sewn nylon flag. Even when flat, these manipulations give the flag the appearance of billowing in high wind – contorting and disfiguring its stripes while remaining implausibly constrained to a rectangle. Read more

Eileen Quinlan, The 14 x 10.5” Version of Fahrenheit #13, 2008-2013.Favorite Stunningly mysterious and beautiful, the photographer Eileen Quinlan’s work is unsuspectingly straightforward. The house-of-cardlike worlds that she constructs, staged solely for her camera’s lens, prop mirrors reflecting intensely colored light, deep shadows, cloth, reflective Mylar, wisps of smoke, and especially, each other. The images created by these arrangements offer kaleidoscopic sights into indeterminate and infinite spaces. Dodging digital media, Quinlan uses medium and large-format cameras with studio strobes to shoot the still-lifes that she sets up on her studio tabletop. There is a startling sincerity to her process. Everything that you can see in her images happened just the way that it appears, no Photoshop or behind-the-scenes slight of hand. In Quinlan’s work the wizardry is all in the setup. Read more
