This year Instinct had the pleasure of attending the SCOPE NYC Art Fair from March 6-8, 2015.  Below is the selection of artists and their work that were present at the fair.  (click on images to expand and for details)


Ron Taylor is a Brooklyn-based artist.  His distinctive brand of abstraction depicts our inner worlds of emotion, bodily plumbing, meditative visions, and nature.  After some early-career success (such as being featured in Time Magazine as an artist-to-watch and being collected by patrons such as Kiki Smith) Taylor went mostly underground for the past 20 years.  He re-emerges here with some of the best work of his career.

David Sebberson is an academic administrator but a self-taught artist.  He comes from the great Midwestern plains, and his art portrays these landscapes and captures the vastness of the environment. Finding his artistic pursuit later in life, he is just now emerging as an artist.

Kate Casanova is a young Minneapolis-based artist who very quickly made a name for herself in New York and the Midwest.  She studies nature in the spaces where we don’t expect it -- in our hair, in our mouths, in our chimneys.

David Hamlow is a conceptual artist producing work about and from his personal consumption and hoarding (collecting) behaviors.  His work has been shown in museums, university art centers, and commercial galleries.

David Aschenbrener is a rural Wisconsin-based metals artist who calls on the spirit world as well as the tools of manhood to forge his sculptures of, and in salute to, the natural world.  His devoted patrons enable him to work solely as an artist.
