Hagar Shaked Answers 5 Questions

Under the Radar, our weekly email highlighting the best art on the ArtSlant network. This week we seek answers from Hagar Shaked.   What are you trying to communicate with your work? The idea of constant search without being able to find it—that thing you are looking for but cannot name. I want to talk about things that we hide as the discovery of sexuality and intimacy.

Under the Radar, our weekly email highlighting the best art on the ArtSlant network. This week we seek answers from Suresh Babu Maddilety.   What are you trying to communicate with your work? I am a sensitive overthinker. I like science, and my art is based on scientific research and its approach.

Anastasia Alekseevna Mikhaylova.   What are you trying to communicate with your work? My work’s subject is rooted in my own sense of mortality, which impacts my art. I study processes of physical, technical, and spiritual transformation and combine analog and digital projection techniques with performance, installation, video, painting, printmaking, and photography. I want to show the beauty and fragility of life and at the same time give positive space to contents which might not be... [more]

.   What are you trying to communicate with your work? For me, it’s important to follow trends, but I am also abhorred by their distortion. We live in the time of sterile aesthetics, uniform beauty, plastic surgeries, computers, high tech, and countless other options to modify our bodies. Through photographs, I overstate all those available possibilities for corporal transformation. We long for change from the outside, unaware how much our emotional states disturb our physical bodies.... [more]

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? With my work I make observations about the time, the society, and the world I live in. I want to raise questions about some aspects and dynamics. I’m interested in the paradoxes and dichotomies of modern living and the effects of mass media and consumer culture on identity. I am interested in what is an image today, in decoding the signs of the visual landscape and creating new associations to better understand the disorienting time... [more]

FeiFan Zhang Answers 5 Questions

by The Artslant Team
  What are you trying to communicate with your work? My ideas come from my interests in the urban, built environment. As I lived and traveled in different cities in China and the United States, I witnessed the continuous reshaping and renovation of these globalized urban landscapes. The elements of these constructed areas sometimes appear misplaced—ambiguous functions or anachronistic intentions emerge. As a result, the qualities of uncertainty, deficiency, inaccessibility, and... [more]

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? If I have to point out something in particular and put it in words (which I find extremely difficult as I cannot grasp a clear and determined intention throughout my work), I would say that I do my best to share with others this strange and particular feeling I face towards my own perception of time: how it relates to our memories and our own history, how it relates to and pins down our lives. I try to reveal a sort of strange and... [more]

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? It depends on the project I am working on. My work is both figurative and abstract, but above all conceptual. I always work from a theme that appeals to me and will allow me to deepen my research through the creative process. I am interested in the poetic expression that evolves through the theme and the conceptual aspect of the project. What I try to communicate is expressed through the idea, the purpose, as well as the color,... [more]
