  What are you trying to communicate with your work? Inspired by the work of Brion Gysin, Dan Graham, Genesis P-Orridge, my work proposes a meta-religion based on two main things: rock & roll and mysticism. Functioning like a secret order that emphasizes the spiritual attributes of musical movements like the blues, rasta, Thee Temple ov Psychick Youth (TOPY), Texan sixties psychedelic rock, or German krautrock, I try to propose a new iconography based on the music and musicians...

To Be Bad Is Not to Be Good: Katya Grokhovsky’s Performance Art

by Alicia Eler
Other ArtSlant Prize IX catalogue essays: David Rios Ferreira & Sabato Visconti   Somewhere along the way, we lost it. Maybe it was the election, which ended in a sociopath Twitter addict becoming our president, or perhaps it was the exhaustion that followed. Or maybe it’s just dealing with the business of living. Sometimes it is hard to tell. Artist Katya Grokhovsky has been through it, and she’s come out the other side, but not in the way that you’d expect. Her discovery? A... [more]

Creatures Like Us: The Drawings of David Rios Ferreira

by Jessica Lanay
Other ArtSlant Prize IX catalogue essays: Sabato Visconti & Katya Grokhovsky   The journeying lines that dominate David Rios Ferreira’s two-dimensional assemblage works, like an EKG reading or the longitudinal and latitudinal lines in a map, are enchanted with the force of their potential. Each vector loops, and builds, like a vine; they fall into one another’s paths, creating rich dimensions in each drawing. Forged together with cartoony shapes in vibrant colors, they create top...

Come visit us in Times Square at SPRING/BREAK Art Show, March 6–12, booth 2231. Purchase tickets for the show here.   What are you trying to communicate with your work?

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]

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]
