Scott Lyall (b. in Toronto, Canada, 1964) lives and works in Toronto and New York. His work combines techniques of painting with digital processes nand new materials, pursuing what he calls “a clientless design,” and “an art that is worthy of a painting analogue.” Recent solo exhibitions include: Superstar, Miguel Abreu Gallery, New York; Callings and Cave Painting Now, Susan Hobbs Gallery, Toronto; and Dragons, Campoli Presti, Paris and London.

Linn Meyers (b. 1968, Washington, DC) divides her time between Washington, DC, and Los Angeles, CA. Her practice—comprising paintings and drawings and large-scale installations—stands as a record of the artist’s physical movements and the imperfections and inconsistencies of hand and body as they move across a surface. Meyers’s works have been shown in public and private venues including the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and the Phillips Collection, Washington, DC; the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; the Drawing Center and Sandra Gering Inc., New York; the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum; Jason Haam, Seoul; ParisCONCRET, Paris; and the Bowdoin College Museum of Art, Brunswick, ME.

His work is based on principles of neutrality, radicality, and self-effacement that constantly challenge the limits of painting. Recent solo exhibitions include: galerie lange + pult, Auvernier, Switerzland, 2022; The Last Cowboy Songs, Baronian Xippas, Brussels, 2022; Tucson Museum of Art, Tucson, 2022; MAMCO, Geneva, 2020; Galerie Gagosian, Geneva, 2020; TUTU, Museum Haus Konstruktiv, Zurich, 2019; and Olivier Mosset – 2, 11, 47, Fondazione Antonio Dalle Nogare, Bolzano, Italie, 2019.
Sally Ross (b. 1965 in Morristown, NJ) lives and works in New York. By playing with materials and constructing and deconstructing their substance, Ross moved from the figurative genre to a more physically involved and abstract way of making a painting, one that takes chance and fortuity as meaningful elements in the creation of the work. In 2022 and 2018, her work figured in two exhibitions curated by Bob Nickas, Strange Attractors, An Anthology of Interplanetary Folk Art, Vol. 3: Lost In Space, at Apalazzo Gallery, Brescia; and at Kerry Schuss Gallery, New York.

Kate Shepherd (b. 1961, New York, NY) lives and works in New York.
