Liz Nielsen’s Wolf Moon Review by Beautiful/Decay

Read on Beautiful/Decay.  Liz Nielsen Uses New Photographic Technique To Create Striking Abstract Images By Genista, February 25, 2015 These images may look like simple abstract paintings, or cut out pieces of cardboard collaged on top of each other, but they are anything but. They are actually a product of one of the most avant-garde photographic processes being used today. Brooklyn artist Liz Nielsen‘s current exhibition Wolf Moon is an eloquent display of a very strange technique. She places different objects and shapes cut…Read More

Sean Fader in Plastiglass Journal by Annie Shepard

Read on Plastiglass Journal. “There’s a whole lot of authorship going on” Sean Fader X Richard Prince By Annie Shepard, December 31, 2014 Picasso famously said “Good artists copy, great artists steal.” But in the age of the re-tweet and the re-gram, is sharing the same as stealing? How has social media changed our sense of authorship?

Read on Momus. Querying the New Appropriation Art: Is this Cynicism? By Joseph Henry, January 8, 2015 The Denny Gallery may have given themselves a curatorial headache with the title of their current exhibition, Share This! Appropriation After Cynicism. There are more tricky connections and presumptions in that moniker alone than in the web mantras and second-person addresses that typically sign most contemporary shows. To begin, the title suggests there was an appropriation art of cynicism. To most eyes, the…Read More

Irena Jurek on Matthew Craven (Share This!)

Read on Matthew Craven The content of Matt’s drawings and collages address an intricate web of interrelated ideas. Alternating between using his hand and found images, Matt delves into the way we construct meaning and belief, our conflicting longing for permanence in a temporary world, as well as the inexplicable complexity of our existence itself. Working on the backs of vintage movie posters, and cutting out photographs from old textbooks, imbues Matt’s work with an awareness of time. There’s…Read More

While artist Lauren Seiden’s monochromatic sculptures start out as airy sheafs of paper, hers is no zen, delicate practice: “I begin by wrapping [the paper], as you would a canvas, moving my body back to front, pulling and pushing it with my arms and fist. This is where the process becomes physical,” says the artist, who often completes this labor-intensive process in a Tyvek hazmat suit to keep…Read More

Lauren Seiden Featured on Refinery29 – 29 Artists You Need to Know List

Read on Lauren Seiden (American, born 1981) New York-based artist Lauren Seiden wraps canvas with paper and works over the paper to blacken it with charcoal — sometimes only coloring edges and gulfs, sometimes darkening the entire crinkled surface. From a distance, they could be sculptures of fabric, marble, or wood, but knowing they are paper creates a pleasure in seeing how they’ve been utterly transformed into a reimagining of canvas, painting, and sculpture.
