New York Print Fair 2011

November 10, 2011

So I just wanted to state that this year I traveled to New York to view all the different artists who were being represented at the Print Fair and wow it was amazing. I will be posting on some of these artists in the near future but let me leave you with one who I found so inspiring for my own work.

Her name is Alyson Shotz a Brooklyn, New York Artist represented by the Derek Eller Gallery in Chelsea, NY. Her work ranges in many different forms of media such as installation, painting, photography and print. I discovered her at the Armory show I believe when I saw a very geometric print of hers shown bellow. Her work focuses on ideas of space, light and perception using natural phenomena and mathematics as driving forces behind the work. She was born in 1964 in Arizona and received her degree from RISD in 1987. She is widely represented around the world at top museums and has received many fellowships as well as awards. I won’t lie I’m currently loving all of this!

David Lang

September 26, 2011

David Lang is an artist who became and official artist much later in his life. He is a New England based artists currently working out of Natick Massachusetts.  I was first introduced to his work in Cohasset at the South Shore Art Center and was delightfully surprised to find such whimsical little kinetic sculptures filling the main gallery. The sculptures are so captivating that time begins to vanish, but what was most interesting was the delicate movement that these sculptures were capable of. The wings moved so softly as if truly gliding along the wind. I was so excited when I visited Sowa today to see that he was having an exhibit at Boston Sculpture Gallery. He currently is showing 20 or so sculptures all fantastic and all unique. I must admit that I stumbled upon this artist and hope that others do as well. I encourage you to see his work in person as the experience would never be the same online. However I have included a few photos bellow of works that I found inspiring and captivating. Enjoy.
