Matthew Ritchie’s work describes the formation of the universe and deals explicitly with the idea of information being “on the surface.” Although often described as a painter, Ritchie creates works on paper, lenticular prints, large-scale installations, freestanding sculpture, web sites, and short stories which tie his sprawling works together into a narrative structure.

Matthew Ritchie is featured in the Season 3 episode “Structures” of the Art21 series “Art:21 — Art in the Twenty-First Century”.

Tim Hawkinson is known for creating complex sculptural systems through surprisingly simple means. Inspiration for many of Hawkinson’s pieces has been the re-imagining of his own body and what it means to make a self-portrait of this new or fictionalized body. Sculptures are often re-purposed out of materials which then artist then mechanizes through hand-crafted electrical circuitry.
