  What are you trying to communicate with your work? I'm interested in the unintended emotional resonance created by new imaging technology: the idea of ghostliness or haunting, a lack of life that is present in (specifically) 3D renderings that attempt to capture life.  What is an artist’s responsibility? While I have tremendous respect for artists whose work engages social practices and changes the face of communities and cities, my work personally engages with more individual... [more]

 Denise Treizman.   What are you trying to communicate with your work? Using materials that we encounter in our everyday life, I am trying to make the viewer shift his perspective, even if for a short moment in time. I am hoping I can open a door that encourages the audience to see things in a different way and appreciate the beauty embedded in simple gestures and materials. I want to challenge their preconceived perceptions about what can and cannot be considered an artwork, as well... [more]

Christa Pratt.   What are you trying to communicate with your work? I’m interested in staying spiritually, politically, and emotionally in-tune with myself and my existence through sculpting blackness in intimate and sensual ways, centering blackness and femininity. Decentering whiteness and patriarchy has been an important part of my self-love journey and my journey as an artist. At its core, with my work I want to communicate that we as living things have continuous access to the... [more]

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? I don’t set out to communicate something in particular—it’s not so intentional or what directs my work; rather, communication/meaning grows out from an intuitive process of making that’s tactile and responsive. It emerges from an exchange, like a conversation; it’s somatic, being realized through the body, like dance or music. The work is a combination of the process, or the performance as I like to call it, and the “thing” that’s... [more]

What are you trying to communicate with your work? Underneath it all is this interest in upending perception and expectation. Our society is structured in a way that begs us to differentiate, categorize, and now, to isolate. I want to blur categories and ultimately extinguish those barriers. I believe that if we look long enough the patterns and similarities come to the surface. What is an artist’s responsibility? I’m afraid that question is far more complex than I could ever... [more]

What are you trying to communicate with your work? Ultimately, I want “Hmong” to be in your vocabulary.  What is an artist’s responsibility? To be aware, resist and love. Show us the greatest thing you ever made (art or not)? I made some T-shirts for a family reunion! Here is a photo of my parents rocking them:     Tell us about a work you want to make but never will: Produce music. I am fascinated by the underground music scene (especially in... [more]
