Jaguar, the highest expression of automotive art, has teamed up with W magazine and more than a dozen of today's most noteworthy emerging artists for a unique collaboration. At the prestigious -scopeHamptons Art Fair, July 15-17, in Southampton, NY, Jaguar will showcase each artist's creative vision on an unusual blank canvas - a 1/18th scale model of a Jaguar X-TYPE automobile. The event demonstrates Jaguar's enthusiasm and support of the art and design world.
Jaguar--a brand renowned for its style, sophistication and luxury--will donate the one-of-a-kind scale models to the fair's silent auction, which runs concurrently from Friday, July 15 through Sunday, July 17. All proceeds will benefit The Retreat, the only domestic violence agency on Long Island's East End.

The contributing artists are Jin Meyerson, Kenzo Minami, Tad Lauritzen Wright, Danny Hobart, Pierre Abando, Thomas Wrede, Simon Aldridge, Johnson Foster, Guerra De La Paz, As Four, Jose E. Guinto, Shinique Smith, Jeff Sonhouse, Jim Wright and James McLeod & Josh Weintraub.

The Artists:

Tad Lauritzen Wright
"The figures, words, and symbolic markings that fill my work are my own synthesis of culture, both past and present, creating what I consider visual poetry." Lauritzen has been exhibited at the David Lusk Gallery in Memphis and New York, San Francisco International Fine Art Exposition, New York's Park Avenue Armory, Virginia's Muscarelle Museum of Art, The University of Memphis Art Museum and elsewhere, and his work can be seen in public collections in Memphis, Houston, Dallas and Oceanside, CA.

Guerra De La Paz
What began as an idea for Cuban-born artists Alain Guerra and Neraldo de la Paz to share a working studio in Miami's Little Haiti has become an artistic collaboration. Inspired by the visual stimulation of the neighborhood, their work has evolved into experimentation with the usage of found objects collected from the area. The duo's installations have been exhibited throughout South Florida, and other work at Miami's Liquid Blue Gallery and Dorsch Gallery as well as New York and Chicago.

Pierre Obando
Born in Belize, Obando grew up in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Miami, FL and Jackson, MS. He completed his MFA at Hunter College in 2001 after also studying at the Slade School in London. His work finds use in the objects and signs of the everyday world, and attempts to make them a vehicle for a collective form of reception, such as paintings that use the Coca-Cola and Evian trademarks. His work has recently been featured at the Queens Museum of Art.

Jose E. Guinto
"My artwork provides an ongoing reflection of the world that surrounds me, depicting physical and metaphoric environments. In my sleep of reason, concerns of identity and origin, particularly my cultural roots as a Filipino American become apparent." A 2004 graduate of the Columbia University School of the Fine Arts, Guinto has been exhibited at -scope events in Miami, London and Los Angeles. His work has also been seen in galleries in New York, San Francisco and the Bay Area, and the Republic of China.

Jeff Sonhouse
Born, raised and working in New York City, Sonhouse is a 2001 MFA graduate of Hunter College. Often mixing classical and modern forms of portraiture, his work varies in relief and material, content and color, pattern and identity. His solo exhibitions include the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center and the Jack Tilton/Anna Kustera Gallery (NY), with group exhibitions throughout the New York City area. Jin Meyerson
Born in Inchon City, South Korea, Meyerson lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. In 2005, he will be exhibited in a group at the Saatchi Gallery in London following recent solo shows in New York (Zach Feuer/LFL) and Paris. His mixed media work has also been seen in New York at the Chelsea Art Museum and Massimo Audiello, Frederieke Taylor, Space 101 and Brooklyn Front galleries.

Kenzo Minami
Originally from Kobe, Japan, Minami relocated to New York where his distinctive "controlled chaos" graphic design style has resulted in collaborations and commissions with Nike, XLR8R, Flaunt Magazine, Raf Simons and DJ Gigolo. He is also partner, art director and designer of the creative agency Panoptic Inc. Minami was the first artist commissioned to do a mural painting for Nike's first art project space in NYC and for its Chelsea Art Museum show.

Thomas Wrede
German photographic artist Wrede renders beautiful the quietude of landscape in large-scale images that lure the viewer into their vastness. Wrede has won numerous German photography awards. Art in America named his seascape photos a highlight of the 2004 -scope art fair in New York. He has also been exhibited at the James Nicholson Gallery in San Francisco.

Simon Aldridge
London-born Aldridge graduated from the Design School at Harvard in 2000. His work explores the complex relationships between people and architecture, pushing conventional expectations of minimalist painting and sculpture by including content related to everyday street culture. Solo exhibited in New York, his group shows have been viewed throughout New York.

Johnston Foster
Foster's world of sculptural objects of the ordinary gone strangely astray harkens to an early Pop Art with a Surrealist undercurrent. Ordinary hardware items are the tools for his works. Living in New York, where he graduated from the graduate program at Hunter College, his work was recently exhibited at the city's Rare Gallery.

As Four
This New York fashion collective is comprised of four young designers known only by their first names--Adi, Ange, Kai and Gabi. The team, which made its runway debut in 2001, is best known for its "circle bags" of "Sex And The City" fame. Coming from varied areas of fashion, including styling, photography and design, As Four experiments with unconventional ways of showing its collections, including in miniature on mechanical dolls.

Shinique Smith
Utilizing "low things to make something divine," Smith makes paper-based sculptures and installations that combine streetwise calligraphy with elements of abstract expressionism. Born and raised in Baltimore, she studied at the Baltimore School for the Arts while running the streets with a graffiti crew at night.

Danny Hobart
New York-based Hobart's video/digital work involves selecting short segments primarily from mainstream film and television and digitally re-editing them into poignant studies.

Jim Wright
Born in Washington, DC, Wright grew up in Northern Virginia. His interest in art and music sent him to the University of Vermont in 1996. There he studied painting and installation in a unique experimental, industrial, yet relaxed environment. Also an accomplished bluegrass guitarist and vocalist, the 2004 MFA graduate of Hunter College now lives in Brooklyn. His paintings have awed viewers at shows in both NYC and Burlington, VT.

James McLeod & Josh Weintraub
McLeod and Weintraub are 2004 MFA grads of New York University. Weintraub's solo work was recently shown at NYC's Washington Square East Gallery.

Brendan Murphy
Brendan's paintings are almost tactile. There is a large amount of texture and visible layering of paint. His canvases are built up so the work does not appear as just flat paint on the surface. His compositions as a whole are very well thought out and each brushstroke is calculated for perfection. Brendan Murphy was born in Bloomington, Indiana in 1971 and raised in Providence, R.I. He currently lives and works in Southampton, NY. His work has been exhibited at the Heidi Cho Gallery, NY, Matthew/Travis Gallery, Houston, TX, and the Consortium for the Arts, Charlottesville, VA.

As much a lifestyle brand as it is an automotive brand, Jaguar has expanded its outreach in 2005 beyond the worlds of fashion, music and food, to the exciting arena of art and artistic expression. Jaguar's participation at -scopeHamptons Art Fair this year provided yet another platform for the featured artists to showcase their abilities, creating their artistic vision on a scale Jaguar X-TYPE model. Jaguar will be displaying the re-created X-TYPE models in a designated area of -scopeHamptons Art Fair, where attendees can sign-up to test-drive a Jaguar.
