  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]

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? I make wall-based geometric abstractions by inventing systems for visualizing values of numbers, specifically of sequences from the infinite numbers pi and e, by utilizing grids and repetition of simple geometric shapes. Numbers are the direct source of abstraction. The majority of my past works are wall-based, geometric, crocheted fiberglass constructions. In 1996, when these things began, they were based on identity... [more]

For the Culture: Towards Curating Black Art by Aesthetic, Not Struggle

by Jessica Lanay
Unlike recent major shows that are chronological surveys of Black art in the context of political upheaval and communal struggle, the exhibition centers the aesthetics, techniques, and innovation of its artists. Now at the August Wilson Center in Pittsburgh, the exhibition magnifies the interstices of the Black experience that push against the historical watersheds that have come to over-define Black life. The onus of Transformative Space is not to couch Black art as a mere reaction to... [more]

  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]

Jan Christopher-Berkson Answers 5 Questions

Jan Christopher-Berkson.   What are you trying to communicate with your work? My practice is anchored in the image-making process and invested in generating relationships with and between images. Using basic materials like canvas, wood, and paint, my work often takes on a distinct spatiality as a point of departure to bring into focus sharp-edge geometric shapes, and occasional representational images, interplayed with color. My works of the past year or so contain the sense that... [more]

Beloved Sculptor Thaddeus Mosley on 91 Years of Carving His Own Path

by Jessica Lanay
Walking into Thaddeus Mosley’s studio is like entering a bestiary that has exploded from its pages. From three feet tall to scraping the ceiling of the workshop, the wooden bodies of Mosley’s sculptures radiate warmth and power as they cut through the air. Inspired by birds and the art of Brancusi, Mosley’s daring compositions arc into splendid, gravity-defying geometries. With works weighing as much as four hundred pounds, one wonders how this 91-year-old artist is still intimately engaging... [more]
