Christa Pratt Answers 5 Questions

by The Artslant Team
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? My work is a study of relationship between a found object and the emotion it evokes, leading to narratives in a different space. My specific interest lies in the deconstruction and re-framing of vernacular photographs. In working with these, I have found how essentially similar family structures are across cultures. Family albums have disappeared with the advent of digital photography; these fragile prints inadvertently document... [more]

Ellsworth Kelly’s Final Paintings Show an Artist Consciously Shaping His “Late Style”

by Zachary Small
Before Ellsworth Kelly died of natural causes at the age of 92, he was busy planning a late-career comeback. Not that he went anywhere—as a forefather of minimalist abstraction, his paintings are an omnipresent staple of museum collections around the world. This comeback was more of a reclamation, a chance for Kelly to redefine himself in his own terms, instead of the frequent mislabeling of his work as starkly minimalist. The first component of Kelly’s comeback was an exhibition of his... [more]

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? The first language that I learned to read was body language. Being a cautious but curious child, cursed by shyness, it was (and still is) my primary language. Observing the adults was preferable to playing with the kids. I gathered expressions, gestures, and stances into a sort of dictionary of my mind and tried to figure out how they connected to verbal language. The body more often than not seemed to defy the words, undo them and... [more]

Pablo Carpio Answers 5 Questions

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? Dissent. What is an artist’s responsibility? Being truthful and honest with your work.

Be thankful for all the wonderful moments that you may experience in life thanks to art. And most important of all, do not take it too seriously.   Pablo Carpio, Lines and spaces. No. 5,... [more]
