Simon's most recent body of work Paperwork and the Will of Capital comprises 12 unique sculptures and 36 editioned photographs. The photographs—large, colorful, and spectacular with a nod to Pop art, and custom-framed in mahogany to emulate the style of boardroom furniture—speak to the bombast of national and corporate symbolism; the sculptures—stylized concrete flower–presses containing delicate preserved floral specimens and their documentation—operate in a discrete and classified zone.

Matsuoka’s almost surreal photographs depict mundane elements of life and people in their urban surroundings. The artist’s works mirror, blur, and alter the viewer’s perspective, aiming to alienate and to create secretive impression. This unique character reflects his peculiar style, which Matsuoka developed in the early 90s, when he was studying literary criticism and evolved as a stage and theatre photographer.

In his black and white photographs, Clergue manages to capture poignantly the pursuit of life and liberty and a passion in the people's expression.

Snow. Sounds are suddenly muted. The noise of traffic in the cities is no more and in the mountains the snow-laden air has dampened the monotonous click-clack of the ski lifts. Snow. And the landscape is transformed into a graphic. Snow. And suddenly abstraction is a reality, as whimsical and as beautiful as it is firm and relentless.

Over the past two decades, Khedoori has developed a practice consisting of intricately rendered drawings and paintings. Ranging in subject matter from abstractions to architecture to nature, her works are often devoid of a background and placed on large-scale paper supports. In recent years, the artist has transitioned from paper to canvas, creating more intimately scaled oil on canvas works that depict static images of objects and views, oftentimes of that which is just beyond our reach, equally enigmatic and oneiric.

In 1978, at age 50, Warhol embarked upon the production of a monumental body of work titled Shadows with the assistance of his entourage at the Factory.
