Wednesday Web Artist of the Week: Tom Galle

by Christian Petersen
Belgian-born, New York-based Tom Galle is the epitome of the contemporary web artist. His work is saturated with the very essence of hyper-digital nowness. He has created an online persona that is at once supremely infatuated with and deeply questioning of the profound impact that the internet has had on all of our bodies and brains. Galle creates art that operates on two distinct levels: it is philosophical and political but also instant and accessible, effortlessly walking the line between... [more]

The End of Food and the Art World

by Audrey L. Phillips
Catastrophic hurricanes, unprecedented flooding, and constant record-breaking highs and lows make it hard to ignore the very real changes occurring as a result of global warming. David Wallace-Wells’ popular July cover story details worst-case scenarios that break down exactly how our day-to-day living could be affected. Wallace-Wells claims most of the “anxiety about global warming” omits the “significant adjustment to how billions of humans conduct their lives” and goes on to list many... [more]

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? My current practice investigates the contemporary condition of the image. The body of work produced over the past two years allows the object-of-an-image to poke through the surface of the picture to assert its equality. And by so doing it rebels against its utilitarian service in the picture/object composite of the image sanctioned by the current norm.  What is an artist’s responsibility? To affectively use reason in the... [more]

Quantum Natives: Meet the Artist Crew Charting New Digital Terrain

by Siobhan Leddy
It’s easy to get lost in the Quantum Natives universe. The global-collective-slash-platform-slash-record-label is tricky to summarize, and even trickier to navigate. Fortunately, though, there’s a map. Inspired by the world-building practices of fantasy and science fiction, this strange, debased Google Map allows the visitor to meander through its wash of dreamy colors and unidentifiable symbols. Each project icon floats ominously above its surface, casting long gothic shadows. This is... [more]

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? My attempt is to rewrite these familiar objects with new meaning and currency. What is an artist’s responsibility? To delve inward, outward, on a perilous journey, resurfacing to illuminate all that one has discovered, to solely bring attention to a higher purpose.   I brought a Pyramid from Egypt to our first meeting, 2017, Acrylic paint, cotton cloth napkins, china marker and mdf board.    Show us the...
