Drawing from things in the past

1/17/22

Been working on a smaller piece based on a study loosely based on a drawing (or at least the approach of drawing on acetate as a proxy for using acrylic with thick, clear isolation layers).

Also thinking about how some early Modernists put compositions together, in particular how Weber, Picasso, Leger and Braque used a narrow chroma range with a high tonal range and a really dark dark (at least they did during their analytical cubism phases).

Freddie is headed into the Regional Emerging Artist Residency for Artspace for 2022. They feel (as a queer/trans person) that “language is important for expressing our experiences, but labels become limiting when we become too attached to them” and they explore this through loose shape and varied repetition.

Saerom Yoon

Saerom is an artist based in Seoul, South Korea. His work is inspired by the effortless beauty of nature, particularly the colors of both sunset and sunrise. He wants his sculptural furniture to have a similar appearance and feel as a water color painting. Furthermore, he hopes to express natural textures in his work; such as the interplay of clouds, calm water, rippling waves, frozen ice and the bark of trees.

Stephen Neidich

Artforum says Stephen’s kinetic sculptures are made of industrial metal objects and tools found in the studio and the outside world. They leverage our familiarity of everyday objects against experience and performance of making art. These gestural spinning and rotating sculptures make plain how, and from what materials they are made, the acrobatics of their production.
