Pedro Amaro Answers 5 Questions

by The Artslant Team
Under the Radar, our weekly email highlighting the best art on the ArtSlant network. This week we seek answers from Pedro Amaro.   What are you trying to communicate with your work? I have always been quite introverted, so communication is not so much what I aim for. What I remember from my childhood is trying to draw things I came across in books or on television. I did not have any knowledge, I just enjoyed doing it. Once in high school I got to know theories about composition,... [more]

Mitsuko Brooks Answers 5 Questions

by The Artslant Team
Under the Radar, our weekly email highlighting the best art on the ArtSlant network. This week we seek answers from Mitsuko Brooks.   What are you trying to communicate with your work? You can make art to document your experiences and provide relief from trauma. It’s ok to struggle with mental health. That doesn’t make you a bad person nor qualify your work as bad art. You can be institutionalized multiple times yet still fit into the “sane” working society. You can survive with a... [more]

The Intricacies of Seeing, Experience, and Memory: How Can Paper Transmit Art's Visual Purpose?

by Rachel Elizabeth Jones
Pen to paper is writing or drawing. Paint to paper, or canvas, is painting. Paper to paper is collage. As a symbol, paper is a proxy for expressive efforts at large. With the exhibition curator Rachel Moore uses work from 11 artists to remind us that the concepts we now so readily associate with digital technology—fragmentation, surveillance, hyper-subjectivity—are also intrinsic to what may be art's most primal faculty: sight. Fractured's scope is ambitious. Beka Goedde, Chord   Just off... [more]

Fractal Realities: A Look at Lala Abaddon's Amazing Photo-Weavings

by Andrea Zlotowitz
Mixing painting and weaving with 35mm photography, Brooklyn-based artist Lala Abaddon creates intricate woven works that “create space and time within a stationary moment” through her use of color and contrast. By cutting printed photographs into hundreds of strips, which she then weaves together, Abaddon creates a deconstructed collage of worldly experience, exemplifying alternate realities of chaos, color, and the universe. Her work dives into the cerebral components of human connection... [more]

Vacant Vice: Freeman & Lowe's Ace Hotel Installation

by Charlie Schultz
The basement of the Ace Hotel is filling up with leggy females and men with manicured facial hair. It’s not a big room, but the black lights on the dimpled white walls make it seem expansive. The DJ is spinning something that seems like the sonic equivalent to the end of an acid trip as the fog machines get fired up and the bar opens for business.  I’ve been to a few immersive installations created by Jonah Freeman and Justin Lowe. None have ever been as grand and glorious as the first one,...

1950s Collages by Helen Adam Anticipated the Internet Meme

by Natalie Hegert
A funny image accompanied by a one-liner caption—it’s a form we know all too well. The internet meme is infinitely reproducible, mutable, and sharable: they're digital artifacts symptomatic of our current cut-and-paste culture. But we’re not the first generation to cut and paste with wild abandon: in Europe in the 20s and 30s, photomontage became surreal art in the hands of practitioners like Hannah Höch, John Heartfield, and Raoul Hausmann; British artists took to collage from the 1960s on,...

A Certain Disney Utopia: Ysabel LeMay’s Photo-Fusions

by Hannah Hoel
Who said Disney was dead? Ysabel LeMay’s staggeringly beautiful photo-fusions, currently on view at Verve Gallery, prove otherwise. Ysabel LeMay is a commercial graphic artist turned painter turned photographer. Each image is made up of hundreds of photographs, collaged together using Photoshop to create grand representations of nature, bounty, and beauty. Her work is more cinematic than painterly: each digital C-print has a plexi-face, whose glossy sheen intensifies the work’s decorative... [more]

A World's Fair tribute in a New York neighborhood mash up

by Lee Ann Norman
New York City has always been a draw for an eclectic mix of artists working across the visual and performing arts. Its underground pubs and speakeasies, expansive loft spaces, museums, sidewalks, and streets have served as creative inspiration for all kinds of movements including jazz, expressionism, Fluxus, hip-hop, and punk. Despite all of that creative energy and expression, the city has also been a beautiful breeding ground for social and cultural dissonance. While New York may not be known... [more]
