LOS ANGELES, CA
Jennifer Steinkamp was born in 1958 in Denver, Colorado and is the eldest of five children. Steinkamp received her BFA and MFA from Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, California in 1989 and 1991 respectively, and also received an honorary PhD in 2011. She lives and works in Los Angeles, California. While her video career began with brightly colored abstract projections, since 2003 she has increasingly incorporated nature-based imagery into her work — gnarled trees that twist, turn, and change seasons and rooms filled with undulating strands of flowers. In doing so she has brought digital art into the mainstream of contemporary art.
Ioanna Pantazopoulou b.1984 in Athens, Greece and currently lives and works in New York. She received both her BA (2007) and MA (2009) in Fine Art from Chelsea College of Art and Design, London, U.K. Pantazopoulou is represented in New York by Safe Gallery and Athens by the Ileana Tounta Contemporary Art Center and has exhibited widely in Europe. She has shown her work at Safe Gallery in New York; Grand Union Gallery in Birmingham, U.K.; Primetime Gallery in New York; Hydra School Projects in Hydra, Greece; NEON Foundation in Athens, Greece; and many more. Her work is included in the Dimitris Daskalopoulos Collection, Athens, Greece.
