Above "Remix" @ Inner State Gallery, Detroit
Artist Above has a new show, Remix, opening November 21 at Inner State Gallery in Detroit. Check out the preview and process pics, as well as this excerpt from his artist statement for the show where he describes his new approach to his iconic arrow symbology and relates it to a hair dresser's process: "The intention for my most recent body of artwork is to explore new directions and re-invent the arrow icon I have been creating for over the past 15 years. The arrow icon is sharp and constructed of straight lines and angles, void of any curved elements. My intention is to contrast the existing sharp angles of the arrow, with the curved and circular cut lines, achieving a dynamic balance between the two with a new fresh look. Similar to that of a hair stylist making a perm on a head of hair that has always been straight."
