I like to think I don’t have much sensitivity for sculpture, because I prefer empty space to clutter. So, when I connect with a sculpture show, I feel like it must be really great.

Multidisciplinary artist Babs Reingold doesn't preach but doesn't shy away from asking big questions about humanity and environmental devastation. Viewing her installations, intricate graphite drawings and provocative paintings of female bodybuilders, we're intrigued and want to learn more about the ideologically eviscerating artist who blurs the lines between beauty and disgust and asks necessary, open-ended questions.

I immediately Googled “Gulf Hammock, FL” and dipped into the street view: there is little more than a single intersection home to blinking red lights, an abandoned gas station, a tiny post office and long curtains of trees. Jensen’s cabin, barn and art studio are nearby, surrounded on three sides by Florida swamp. Gulf Hammock seems like the kind of place that is far from anywhere that is not Gulf Hammock.

In the last few years, a new Floridian star has ascended to similar heights – Tallahassee-based Jeff Vandermeer, whose 2014 Southern Reach trilogy garnered praise from no less a giant than Stephen King, and saw him compared to titans like Kafka and Thoreau.
Leslie Neumann wouldn’t live anywhere else in the world -- easy to understand as we gazed at an amazing panorama of coastal marsh from her home-studio balcony in Aripeka.
