Illustration // Wednesday, January 15, 2014

Robert Beatty Surreal-Scapes

Illustration // Wednesday, January 15, 2014
'A television crashes in the desert, its neon guts spilling onto the black and white dirt of this new place. Plants take root, growing towards some unknown light. You have been here before. A wall of televisions flickers on, static and golden lips. Your eyes taste the light. You wake up.An unsung contemporary of artists like Cory Arcangel and Ryan Trecartin, Robert Beatty repurposes the tools of outmoded technology, creating hybridized drawings, videos, sculptures, music and installations that blur sensory boundaries...'

Illustration // Wednesday, January 15, 2014

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 15, 2014
China-born, Kansas-based artist Hong Chun Zhang has a fascination with hair, whether large format charcoal drawings of hair that extend to the floors of a gallery, or her Hairy Object series that puts hair in absurd situations, the work is both well-rendered and fascinating. Some people feel repulsed by a clump of hair, and Zhang embraces it.

The Work of AMTK

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 15, 2014
'As two artists working together, we attempt to keep a practice which allows a shifting and challenging exchange for each of us. Processes of negotiation, cooperation and sabotage lead to paintings which are nudged in certain directions but ultimately take a form of their own. These are things that neither of us would make alone, which seem to arrive through accidental intersections of our intentions..'

Andy Gilmore's Retinal Orchestra

Illustration // Tuesday, January 14, 2014
Rochester-based artist and wizard Andy Gilmore turns math into art, creating hypnotizing geometric patterns that are heavily influenced by patterns that abound in nature and music. These kaleidoscopic creations translate the mathematical abstractions that govern the organic, the aural and the visual, and it's no wonder he has received a lot of well-due attention for these brilliant works of art and equation.

Alberto del Pozo's Saints of Santeria

Illustration // Tuesday, January 14, 2014
Alberto del Pozo's "Oricha Collection" depicts the principal gods and goddesses that comprise the Afro-Cuban religion of Santeria in lavish, stunning detail. The Orishas can be traced back to the 19th Century slave trade, when thousands of Nigerian citizens were taken from their Yoruba homes to be sold as slaves in the new world. In Cuba, the slaves were introduced to Catholicism, resulting in a new blend of Yoruba and Christian beliefs. The Yoruba gods were then identified with Catholic saints, and allowed many generations of slaves to practice their religion under the guise of Christian liturgy. This new religion came to be known as "Santeria," or "way of the saints."

Eyedrop Art by You Si

Illustration // Tuesday, January 14, 2014
You Si, a Beijing artist, explores new possibilities of ink painting by using eyedroppers to deploy colors and ink onto a flat surface, a kind of Eastern Jackson Pollock. Chinese Art has a long history of ink painting, yet You Si is reinventing this centuries-old tradition by shifting his tools and technique. His works are bursting with dynamic forms, suggestive of flowers petals, cells, amoebas, jungles or supernovas. Titles include "The Passage Between Space and Time," "Evolving Garden" and "Wave in Outer Space," evoking a kind of psychedelic otherworld. He describes his paintings simply as "mental universes."
