The (e)merge art fair celebrates galleries, artists, and the creative process with an an energetic environment of collaboration and discovery.
London based contemporary photographer Muir Vidler is sought out for his careful eye and colorful compositions by international magazines (GQ, Vanity Fair, Vogue) and select companies (Lotus, ROVE, Penguin). Muir Vidler consistently creates personal projects that deliver exuberantly detailed images, complete with an international cast of real life heroes. Muir Vidler captures the pageantry of life in themed works including: “Istanbul,” “Israeli Death Metal,” “Libyan Beauty Pageant” and “Rebels Without a Pause.” Muir Vidler is an important contemporary who lives by the old maxim, “never complain, never explain…”
Florida based contemporary photographer, Jeremy Chandler explores a myriad of issues that center on masculinity, utopian ideals and nature. Inspired by cinema, Jeremy Chandler’s visuals create dreamlike narratives that contradict traditional notions of masculinity. Jeremy juxtaposes the beauty found in nature with feelings of anxiety, as experienced by the viewer for the central protagonist. As Jeremy Chandler describes, “I create fictional narratives, but I also make environmental portraits.”
Becky Flanders consistently creates thought provoking, electrically charged photographs that reveal contradictory feminine archetypes while releasing urine while standing. Becky’s work, as she often describes, “And yet this image of woman ‘project[ing] beyond the boundaries of self’ in this way remains absent from collective consciousness. It seems that the concept of femininity dictates the possibility of female bodies, rather than the other way around.”
