Extra Spectral is a collaborative exhibition between Bianca Beck and Sascha Braunig, both artists whose individual practices investigate power, the body, and transformation. While sharing past sketchbooks and forgotten studies with one another, each artist chose which paintings and sculptures the other would make next — exchanging control over this formative phase in one another’s processes. 

Bianca Beck (b. 1979, Columbus, OH) earned a BFA from Carnegie Mellon University and an MFA from Yale University. The artist has participated in exhibitions at Opelvillen Rüsselsheim, Rüsselsheim, Germany; V1 Gallery, Copenhagen, Denmark; the FLAG Art Foundation, New York, NY; White Columns, New York, NY; Cheim & Read, New York, NY; and Rachel Uffner Gallery, New York, NY, among others. Beck is the recipient of numerous awards and fellowships, including the Helen Winternitz Award for Excellence in Painting at Yale University, New Haven, CT; The Ox-Bow School of Art Fellowship Program, Saugatuck, MI; and Artist-in-Residence at Complimenta, Ithaca, NY.

Sascha Braunig (Qualicum Beach, BC, Canada, 1983) has lived in Portland, ME since 2010. Her work has been exhibited in solo exhibitions at Atlanta Contemporary (Bad Latch, 2017); MOMA PS1 (Shivers, 2016); and Kunsthall Stavanger, Norway (Torsion, 2015), as well as in numerous solo and group gallery shows. She was awarded a studio residency from the Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program in 2016 - 2017, a Pollock-Krasner Foundation award in 2016, and a Macdowell Colony Fellowship in 2013. She holds a BFA from The Cooper Union and an MFA in painting from Yale University.
