the logic driving this disparate group of artists is of the process of meditative repetition, allowing each to create and define personal myth behind their work. continuing the exploration and deep attention to detail, process, nuance and resemblance to nature, forms evolve on an intuitive level. the interpretation of the chaos of nature through an intersection of geology and architecture, timeless associations of form and material, layers of information enacted through repetition result from this study.
basic materials: carbon, clay, bronze, marble, alabaster, pigment imbued with a tactile function allow the viewer’s perceptions to be altered, if only for a moment.rogan gregory, a montauk based artist cofounded the loomstate brand and in 2005 designed edun, his first clothing collection for bono and ali hewson. in 2007 he was the recipient of the vogue/cfda fashion fund award. while pursuing his career in fashion, gregory has also spent the past decade creating a body of sculptural work and painting. the intent of the work is to encompass his interest in nature, ecosystems and evolutionary biology.

jonathan cross, based in los angeles and twentynine palms, ca, received his bfa from the university of dallas in irving, tx. he worked for five years as a printmaker for gemini g.e.l., working with great artists like richard serra, joel shapiro and ann hamilton, refining his graphic sensibilities. his postgraduate degree, a mfa at arizona state university, offered an immersion into ceramics. there is power in the raw simplicity in cross’ ceramic sculptures. using minimalist forms with direct, forceful and purposeful lines, he sculpts clay into powerful sculptures with such visual impact that they seem to command as much attention as large monuments.
