Alex Schoenberg Works in Three and a Half Dimensions
Alex Schoenberg produces constructions that transition between pictorial and physical space. Trained as an architect, the artist dismantles notions of traditional perspective and breaks down through complex works that invite the viewer to navigate reality for themselves. Claiming she works somewhere between the third and fourth dimensions, Schoenberg's drawings, constructions, and models explore paradox, illusion, and distortion which dispel our systems of seeing and observing.

NOT WHAT IT IS: Episode 7 Not What It Is is an art & design series that documents the stories and practices of NJ-based artists. VISIT MY WEBSITE: samvladimirsky.com CONTACT: firstname.lastname@example.org IN THE WHISPER OF SILENCE Mona Brody synthesizes the familiar with the remarkable, the natural with the synthetic, and the bizarre with the extraordinary. Her spontaneous paintings reflect the sublime as well as the contemporary experience of the human condition through a sociopolitical lens. A self-described collector of things, Mona links what can be found in the natural world with what is man-made by exposing what makes both sublime. Californian tree pods and barks quickly blossom into beautiful brooches encrusted with gold leaf and freshwater pearls. Fish hooks come to embody the human form, wrapped in gauze and beeswax. Brody currently teaches at Pratt Institute. SEE MONA'S ART HERE: monabrody.com

S2 E2: Everything is Connected: Light and Pattern in the work of Christine Romanell
Christine Soccio Romanell's practice revolves around the use of non-repeating patterns and rotational symmetry. Her abstraction of form and manipulation of light and color dominate the boundaries of the physical objects she creates. Instead, she is more interested in what her sculptures generate. She often works with quasi crystals to produce light diffraction patterns and works with mixed media as she explores the structures of the penrose pattern.

'Habitus in Thirteen Seconds' offers no fixed meaning in an attempt to challenge the constraints of our socially constructed bodily practices. It serves as a siege device to undermine the integrity of the structure we call communication through techniques of Inclusive Disjunction that confuse and disrupt the power of representation.
