Turn the Page: The First Ten Years of Hi-Fructose highlights 51 remarkable contemporary artists who have been featured in the pages of the popular art magazine Hi-Fructose. Despite differing levels of recognition, all the artists have a distinctive voice and vision. They come from around the world with different perspectives and approaches to art-making. Turn the Page offers the opportunity to view their original works beyond the flat worlds of paper and digital screens, where they are most often seen.
These diverse artists each demonstrate mastery of their chosen media—their work is characterized by vividly colored imagery that is graphically and carefully rendered with high attention to detail. From oil paintings and drawings, to porcelain and bronze sculptures, to video and mixed media artworks, both new and traditional artistic processes are represented. The subjects, images and ideas expressed in these artworks, however, are decidedly contemporary, responding to the world as we see it today. Though the artworks in Turn the Page are often informed by art history, they are also equally influenced by popular culture, current politics and globalization.
