FIVE features paintings, sculptures, videos, installations, and photographs from contemporary artists based in LA and New York. Materiality, attitude, and wit tie their work together, as well as their past participation in the ongoing UNLV Artist-in-Residence Program.

Deborah Aschheim is a multimedia artist whose works explore the many permutations of memory as subject matter. Her intricately constructed architectural sculptures tower over the viewer with ghostly suggestions of familiar places. Aschheim lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. UNLV Artist-in-Residence Spring 2015. 

Erin Cosgrove is an artist and writer who uses video, animation, books, painting, scrolls, timelines, installation, and performance in her artwork. Her videos and Urfather sculptures merge satire, philosophy, mythology, and history. Cosgrove lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. UNLV Artist-in-Residence Spring 2013. 

Lucky DeBellevue’s densely patterned installations level high and low art hierarchies. He has an ever expanding vocabulary of materials, including chenille stems, pistachio shells, and wood veneer. DeBellevue lives and works in NYC. UNLV Artist-in-Residence Spring 2016. 

Ash Ferlito synthesizes popular culture and craft traditions with textiles, patches, and oil paint. Her videos, wall sculptures, and paintings embody an unrestricted attitude, a punchy pop palette and untethered openness to diverse subject matter and interpretation. Ferlito lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. UNLV Artist-in-Residence Spring 2014.  

David Gilbert’s work inhabits the space between installation and documentation. Fragments from the artist’s practice are hung, stacked and layered against studio walls, windows, and corners in disheveled yet specific assemblages, then photographed to emphasize the materiality of the objects and the physicality of light. Gilbert lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. UNLV Artist-in-Residence Spring 2016.
