The sculpture series "Twenty-Nine Stories” by Michael Richison addresses the connective physicality of steel, plywood, and 3D printing. During his painting studies at the Cranbrook Academy of Art, the graduate student found himself drawn to the school’s design and craft heritage – in particular the plywood explorations conducted by Charles and Ray Eames.
With the influence of the Eames’ work, he has created sculpture that is playful and interactive, inviting contact and contemplation through impermanent compositions. Viewers are invited to alter the composition of the stacking planes which can be rotated, removed and re-stacked at will. The foundation of "Twenty-Nine Stories" is plywood shapes and custom-designed 3D printed brackets, which allows for the sculptures’ intricate and balanced movement. One could say that by exploiting the Eames's use of plywood in his work Richison honors the designers' foresight in the Digital Age.
Michael Richison is currently a professor at Monmouth University, where he teaches Motion Graphics, History of Graphic Design, and Typography. He has exhibited and performed at venues and galleries both nationally and internationally.
We are very pleased to announce that Conrad-Ferm is back for his third showing at FRG Objects and Design / Art, following his stand-out 2016 solo exhibition at the Coral Springs Museum of Art.
With the "FUTURE NOW” the abstract artist enters new territory. The canvases and works on paper are extremely bold, yet surprisingly less complex than past work. The saturated color and line-work ever present in Ferm's paintings are now allowed to breath on white, with striking affect.
The paintings on exhibit express a maturity in their simplicity and calculated ease that is unexpected from an artist known for his dense, explosive canvases. One gets the sense these paintings are not about the harshness of now, they are more about giving you the space to imagine the promise of the future.
Conrad-Ferm's work is in numerous private collections and has been exhibited extensively in the United States.

Artwork by Aric Frons
Israeli born artist ARIC FRONS lived and worked in New York City from 1964 to 2005. He studied at the Arts Student League of NY and the School of Visual Arts. A highly successful career in advertising as a graphic designer and creative director in New York, Europe and South East Asia redirected his focus from 1970 until 1998 when he dedicated his energy solely to his love of painting and the fine arts.
Cubism, Futurism and Constructivism is evident throughout Frons’ stylistic evolution. The work is evocative of the artists Josef Albers, Mondrian, Moholy-Nagy and the Bauhaus school genre, yet entirely his own.
Frons’ command of graphic design and the visual immediacy of the advertising world cohere the award winning artist’s color saturated paintings and prints with an edgy spiritual energy, surprisingly perceptive of hat we term "modern" today.
