Guy Hepner and The TAX Collection are delighted to release a holiday shop with unique works from contemporary artists Dan Lam, Timothy Gatenby, Daniele Fortuna, Leegan Koo, and Dylan Martinez.
Dan Lam is best known for her “drippy” sculptures and vibrant color palette. It is in both the transition of colors and the gravity-defying look of each piece that she creates a sense of life-like movement as your eyes travel across the work. Lam uses non-traditional materials of polyurethane foam, acrylic paint, and epoxy resin to create these works that are unlike any other.

Timothy Gatenby’s original oil paintings that are featured explore familiar figures, the pressures of consumerism, and the modern societal tendency of over-indulgence. The characters from Toy Story, ET, Sesame Street, and Sponge Bob are just a handful of muses he places at the forefront of his paintings. Gatenby’s representation of the world he witnesses is both familiar and distorted, dark and playful, as well as colorful and muted, giving us an endless opportunity for reexamination at every glance.

Daniele Fortuna draws inspiration from the Italian art he grew up with but his style is undeniably his own. Every sculpture tells us a reimagined story of what he once saw in those paintings. The intricate design of each piece is composed of a number of small, wooden, painted elements that are being put together like a jigsaw puzzle. Fortuna’s works “Heads Will Roll,” “I Want To Break Free,” and Bacchus And The Third Eye” will without a doubt turn heads.

Leegan Koo had a love for drawing and painting beginning at a young age. His works “Continental Breakfast,” “Halloween Day Two,” and “The Means Reds” are for sale in the shop. With a mix of references, these original paintings elaborate on various styles of historical realism and surrealism that generate mysterious and timeless pop interpretations. Koo draws inspiration from jazz, hip-hop, graffiti, and his experience living in metropolitan hubs.
