 Randall Stoltzfus   What are you trying to communicate with your work? I am trying to make images that communicate that each of us is a part of something bigger. That we are cooperating whether we know it or not. And that light surrounds each one of us and whatever this is we are a part of.   What is an artist’s responsibility? Personally, my responsibility as an artist is to reduce suffering. So I try to make something that is compassionate on some level. Maybe aesthetic... [more]
 This week we seek answers from Terrel Lozada What are you trying to communicate with your work? I hope that, through my work, my subconscious will communicate directly with yours. I’m trying to convey the intensity and quiet stillness of the internal world. It is from that place I pull up the invisible and make it visible.   What is an artist’s responsibility?   For me, it’s to live my life well. To flourish. To engage in a lifestyle that supports my physical and... [more]
Under the Radar, our weekly email highlighting the best art on the ArtSlant network. This week we seek answers from Uma Iyli.   What are you trying to communicate with your work? My work serves to build bridges between my Indian roots and contemporary culture. Each series allows me the opportunity to embrace my worlds. They act as avenues for others to merge culture and time in their own way. Time-based meditative processes inform my art. Examining ancient cultures and focusing on... [more]
Under the Radar, our weekly email highlighting the best art on the ArtSlant network. This week we seek answers from Marco Abisso.   What are you trying to communicate with your work? I do not try so much to communicate to others, the more I try to establish a communication with my interiority, to then interpret the signs later. As in everyday life, I commit good and bad actions, waiting to understand the implications, for trying to improve both personally and in relationship with... [more]

Under the Radar, our weekly email highlighting the best art on the ArtSlant network. This week we seek answers from Amber Renaye.   What are you trying to communicate with your work? I work with a candid consideration of the materials’ inherent qualities and understand the resulting “communication” to be a shared matter of perception.    Strata II, 2018, Ground rock and oil medium on canvas   What is an artist’s responsibility? I’m not sure I agree that artists are... [more]

Under the Radar, our weekly email highlighting the best art on the ArtSlant network. This week we seek answers from Anne Sophie Lorange.   What are you trying to communicate? I communicate the importance of human openness, which I find closely linked to the beauty of existence, through exploring the aesthetics of emptiness, silence and in-between spaces. A painting is not an absolute answer. Rather, it reaches out to viewers and invites them to take part. The traces are a silent world... [more]

Under the Radar, our weekly email highlighting the best art on the ArtSlant network. This week we seek answers from Throngkiuba Yim.   What are you trying to communicate with your work? My subject matter has changed over the years but one element I strongly adhere to is unsolicited concern. Art shapes and heals the world in its own time and in its own way. In obscurity, I struggle to create a contrast between “Ideologies and People” and “Politics and Nature.”   Mission... [more]

Under the Radar, our weekly email highlighting the best art on the ArtSlant network. This week we seek answers from Beatriz Guzman Velasquez.   What are you trying to communicate with your work? My work speaks about the silence of being boundless, in-between, and unspecified. I am like the Other. One is like the Other. We are like the rest. Color, line, word, and number are numbed as they edge in likeness. Space is not individualized; we are seamlessly absent.   aguas/waters,...

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]

Under the Radar, our weekly email highlighting the best art on the ArtSlant network. This week we seek answers from Lionel Cruet.   What are you trying to communicate with your work? My artworks highlight narratives that relate to geopolitics, economics, and technology, using multiple mediums such as experimental digital prints, videos, audiovisual material, and large-scale installations to recreate spaces. I often recall memories and experiences using imagery derived from the natural... [more]

Under the Radar, our weekly email highlighting the best art on the ArtSlant network. This week we seek answers from Julius D. High.   What are you trying to communicate with your work? My creative work communicates the significance of expanding upon perspective and valuing empathy. By highlighting these concepts, we are able to slowly assist in manifesting a world that is rooted upon inclusion and love.  What is an artist’s responsibility? I believe that an artist’s... [more]

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]

Under the Radar, our weekly email highlighting the best art on the ArtSlant network. This week we seek answers from Jody Christopherson.   What are you trying to communicate with your work? Human beings are more than just one thing. I’m a multidisciplinary artist: I write, perform, create music and visual art at a professional level. I don’t call that “extra,” I call that agency. The biggest lie artists (and women) are often told is that we need to ask permission to expand, that we... [more]

Under the Radar, our weekly email highlighting the best art on the ArtSlant network. This week we seek answers from Danny Augustine.   What are you trying to communicate with your work? My artwork is a product of a meditative state I slip into while drawing. I never have a set image or idea when I begin a drawing so the end result is a reflection of the world around me. During my process, I filter in 24-hour news streams, personal experiences, and everyday life.  Once a drawing is...
