Paste Modernism 3


The ‘Paste-Up’ is an ever-expanding and innovative form of street art, that involves an artist making their work onto varying sizes of paper and then applying it to walls and surfaces within their urban environment using wheat-paste or wallpaper glue.  Whether as black and white multiplied photocopies, colourfully hand painted murals or thought provoking…

I don't mean the town in California.

Somewhere in the mist between sleep and waking I had a vision. It involved lace and fibers and paste... like old school wallpaper paste, molten wax and just a bit of paint... if necessary.

As soon as I get done with my chores, I'm going to give it a go! Pictures will, of course, be forthcoming.

Yarn Over

Well, my studio is all unpacked after it's float across the Atlantic to New York and then on to the wilds of Upstate. On a clear day I can see to the Adirondack park from the end of my street. I have a cool barn and I keep finding really cool stuff in it.

I want to make it all into sculptures. Unfortunately I'm terrified. I have performance anxiety. So the downside of having been a professional artist on the festival circuit was that selling was important. It kills your creativity.…

Cut Paper Dioramas

Amazing Patience Art: If I tried doing this there would be blood everywhere and lots of crumpled wads of paper angrily thrown all over the floor!

Carving their way into the realm of fine arts thanks to pioneers like Kara Walker, paper dioramas aren’t just for elementary school projects anymore. Cut-paper art is an ambitious endeavor…

"Ripped: The Allure of Collage" at The Hecksher Museum of Art

If you happen to be in the Huntington, NY area... exhibition on view through January 28, 2012

"Collage was the first medium in the twentieth century to challenge the sanctity of the age-old forms of painting and sculpture.  Derived from the French word "coller" (to glue), collage uses bits of torn and cut paper, sometimes taken from trash, to create a sense of dislocation,…

Kate Rivers collage exhibition at Matthews Gallery, Santa Fe, NM

I've not seen Kate Rivers' collage work in person, but would like to. Looks like it'd be worth a visit if you are in the area! Interesting work.

The concept of art that requires the viewer.

Do your pieces need to be disruptive to a space to be art?

I've been reading a book that deals a lot with post-modern thought in the context of animals in art. At one point an essay talks about Robert Rauschenberg's Monogramme:

There was a fairly long, tedious argument as to how this piece disrupted the space, forcing interaction with the viewer. As…

For Inspiration: Lori Nix & Her Fascinating Worlds

Artist Lori Nix photographs evocative urban and pastoral scenes from a post-human world of disaster and decay — but first she has to build them.

The most astonishing thing about Nix’s magical, melancholy masterpieces is how they are made. Each museum, mountain vista, library, and laundromat is a painstakingly detailed diorama, taking the artist months to… Continue
