Rended Flag Series by Artist, Jeremy Dean at VOLTA, NYC

Thu, 03/22/2012 - 13:04

HERO/HOSTAGE, 2012, by Jeremy Dean, American Flag Threads, Needles and Gold Leaf Paint on Paper, 4''x12''(diptych)

For this series Dean has taken apart single Americans flags string by string, completely deconstructing and reassembling them into two separate flags made only of vertical and horizontal strings respectively. The end of each string is threaded through a needle and then placed over prints of polarizing imagery. Dean feels that the extreme polarization our society is currently experiencing: socially, economically, and politically is literally rending the fabric of America, so this work is a physical representation of the state of the Union, that once polarized as opposites can never fully reintegrate.

INDEPENDENT - Installation by Mac Adams

During the Armory Arts Week this Spring in NYC, our intern, Lin Xu scouted this installation by artist Mac Adams.  Lin shares with us this installation:

As a fan of mystery novels, the installation by artist Mac Adams, on view  at the INDEPENDENT during March 8-12, 2012 immedietly caught my eye. I suspect any other mystery fan would find this work facisinating as well. Lin Xu

Mac Adams created “environments” setting up three-dimensional scenarios that were the sets for incidents—often violent—that might have taken place. By the same time, his installations turned into pictures, meticulously staged photographs. The process is cinematographic as much as photographic. The audience’s view is guided and a near theatrical synopsis is created that puts as much information as possible into the image. Mac Adams is the director of “actors” and a set that he brings together for the moment when the picture is taken. Diptychs or a broken mirror effect are techniques he uses to demonstrate the passage of time: before and after. The witness is creator, and the viewer can only interpret what he sees in contradictory ways. ( Source: the INDEPENDENT art fair)

Below are two close shots of this installation. Time to gather the evidence and solve the mystery...

New City Art Fair 2012 - Dreamlike Photographs from Eye Ohashi

Wed, 03/21/2012 - 23:33

During the Armory Arts Week this Spring in NYC, our intern, Lin Xu, scouted an emerging Japanese photographer. Belows she shares with us some of his works.

I discovered some dreamlike and vivid photographs by the up-and-coming young Japanese photographer, Eye Ohashi, at hpgrp GALLERY NEW YORK, during the NEW CITY ART FAIR - Japanese Contemporary Art, 2012, in Chelsea New York City. Eye Ohashi captures an amazing and dreamlike world. The photographer releases soap bubbles into the air, which float through various natural and artificial settings, recording their light reflections and myriads of colors against different backdrops. Below are two photographs by Eye Ohashi.  Lin Xu
