(Image:  Chantal Powell, Encounter, 2011, Peacock feathers, thread, 40 x 140 x 1 centimeterss; © Chantal Powell)   Chantal Powell (b. 1977, West Midlands, UK) Chantal Powell creates seductive sculptural objects that cross the boundary between reality and imagination. Responding to objects and materials as her starting point, she seeks to understand and manipulate the inherent vocabulary of these chosen materials. Using this visual language she plays with the notion that we are capable of be... [more]

(Image: Sohyung Choi, Notes on a Self-Portrait, 2011, digital prints on translucent paper, wire, mixed media, 6 min 40 sec single-channel video, 120" x 120"; © Sohyung Choi)   Sohyung Choi (lives in Sacramento) I question the time and space of one’s existence through found objects and the photographic image. Both serve as records of time: of how innumerable histories and memories have already passed and been forgotten, but remain inside us. In much of my work, I reconfigure discarded materi... [more]

[Image: Susan Meyer, work-in-progress (Palenque), 2011, installation; © Susan Meyer]   Susan Meyer (lives and works in Denver, CO) "I make sculptures that are inspired by utopian, experimental communities. The pieces suggest architectural models for utopian experiments. My curiosity stems from the ways in which these communities reflect optimism and, the ways in which they simultaneously reflect failure. Modernist ties to the utopic and Modernist architecture also come into play; recent scul... [more]

Mexico City) The Plexus series is an ongoing series of installations that explore the implications of thread and fibers as loaded materials that relate to the complicated construction of gender and identity not only in my native Mexico, but throughout the western world. These installations are related as well to the human need for shelter and man’s ultimate vulnerability... [more]

OVERLORDS BY TOM ESTES at Interlife Crisis It’s hard to remember a world without the internet. In its current pernicious state of velocity combined with a fathomless audience, the internet has become a dizzying source of daily information. According to a recent survey, we now spend almost half our waking hours either online, on the phone, or watching television. The flow of information has continued unabated and transmission of images has accelerated to become a source of daily reality for most u... [more]

The Art of Creation: Development of The Floor Show Exhibit Photo by Arthur Kozlovski Most people view an art show as a complete entity, with walls perfectly aligned with paintings, floors decorated with sculptures, tables loaded with fancy champagne and cheese. These facets are all part of the final presentation of an exhibition, but the process for this production is one that takes a lot of time, patience, and creativity in its own respect. Last week, I was lucky enough to be involved with... [more]

Not marble, nor the gilded monuments Of princes, shall outlive this powerful rhyme;But you shall shine more bright in these contents Than unswept stone besmear'd with sluttish time. When wasteful war shall statues overturn, And broils root out the work of masonry, Nor Mars his sword nor war's quick fire shall burnThe living record of your memory. 'Gainst death and all-oblivious enmityShall you pace forth; your praise shall still find roomEven in the eyes of all posterity That wear this world out... [more]

(Image: Ebbe Stub Wittrup, installation view (Burning in water, drowning in flames), 2010; © ASBAEK) Ebbe Stub Wittrup (b.1973) Since the end of the 1990s Ebbe Stub Wittrup’s artistic practice has focused on the photographic medium. In his photographs whether we look at his neorealistic snap­shots or the more conceptually oriented photo series we find a mysteriousness that makes one think of a series of narrative parallel worlds. This is reflected quite speci­fically in his latest exhibitio... [more]

Posted 8/2/11

The evening of June 14th hosted the opening of F_AIR's exhibition, The Summer Issue. Entering into a white facade of single, simple pieces, a tone is set and the ambiance thrives in the curiosity of finding further value through the minimum. The artist's stories are not told, their personal theme is not bombarded into the gallery, they only have a single piece of themselves to epitomize their work, and to create a story that ties the show together. Inevitably, the showing of single pieces from each... [more]

Life is short, and we all will die in the end. Sometimes we need reminding of these simple but powerful facts. The vanitas is a genre most associated with religious subject matter. It is included in religious images in order to tell the viewer that since life is short, they have to accept Christ before death, and also to say that there is more to life than just this fragile earthly one. Vanitas can be depicted as something as ephemeral as flowers or rotting fruit, and more often, the skull is use... [more]
