  What are you trying to communicate with your work? Right now, I want to make things that will last...meditative and contemplative objects...about things that are felt but not thought...mysteries, wonder, and love.   Quidditas #selfie II, 2016, Digital C print on aluminum panel with cast resin   What is an artist’s responsibility? In my opinion, an artist’s primary responsibility is to reinterpret for our times the recurring themes important to humankind. Some... [more]

Fecal Matter: The Design Provocateurs Subverting Fashion’s Throwaway Culture

by Christian Petersen
  Hannah Rose Dalton and Steven Raj Bhaskaran are international, multi-disciplinary art provocateurs who create under the brand name Fecal Matter. They formed Fecal Matter in 2016 to express their uncensored views through fashion, film, music, photography, and performance. Through their collected work, Fecal Matter have created a world of dark, confrontational fantasy that encourages critical and free thinking about our own beliefs and perceived realities. The deliberate subversion... [more]

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? I consider my work political, but I prefer the subtle process of reflection over the shoveling of an opinion down a viewer's throat. That's probably because I don't think art is a political or emancipatory force—rather, it is what Fredric Jameson labeled “just another ‘pop’ in an all-pervasive pop-culture.” Thus, I’m not interested in examining or establishing perceived truths; instead, I’m interested in exploring the Absurd—the...

The Marginal Labor Left for Humans: Brett Wallace’s AMAZING INDUSTRIES

by Joel Kuennen
SPRING/BREAK Art Show 2018, more than 100 curators will feature artists and exhibitions that consider the theme: Stranger Comes to Town. It’s been said that all great literature boils down to one of two stories: a hero goes on a journey or a stranger comes to town. “Who and what is this Stranger?” ask SPRING/BREAK curators and founders, Ambre Kelly and Andrew Gori. “Is their travel into the unknown always an act of heroism to some, of colonialism or contamination and infiltration to...

Sylvia Sonique: An Analogue Artist at Home in the Digital World

by Christian Petersen
  The German collage artist Sylvia Sonique is not a typical web or digital artist. In fact, her work is almost defiantly analogue, obsessively created with real physical and emotional commitment from decidedly non-digital ephemera. But like many young artists, her artistic reach and status have expanded mainly though her interactions within digital space. Her work is represented wholly digitally and reflects an aesthetic whose natural home today is largely on the internet. Indeed,... [more]

Jesse Farber Answers 5 Questions

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? There is a way in which I think we are very alienated from ourselves, in trying to understand ourselves as material beings existing in the world. We learn more and more about the nature of matter and our physical systems, but it’s still so difficult to feel in any visceral sense that this is actually happening inside us and around us—that it’s in fact who we are, on a fundamental level. Instead, a muddle of textbook diagrams,... [more]

Lorna Mills Cracks The Great Code

by Christian Petersen
  If you have even a passing interest in net art then you are likely familiar with the work of Lorna Mills. The Toronto-based artist and curator has been hugely successful in promoting the medium to a wider audience, both through her own work and as a conduit for other artists. In her own practice, Mills works mainly in the GIF format, creating digital collages with manipulated elements of found GIFs. Her work brazenly straddles the line between “high art” and low (digital) culture with... [more]

Genevieve Goffman Answers 5 Questions

by The Artslant Team
Genevieve Goffman.   What are you trying to communicate with your work? I demonstrate how narratives both outline the path of and frequently propel the distribution of power. How dominant power structures parabolize history, co-opt memory, and distort perceptions of current events. I am mildly obsessed with charting how states or political movements use memorialization as tool to manipulate communal memory and weaponize emotions. On the flip side, I’m also committed to highlighting... [more]
