Mur de cadres

Barry McGee
 Nacho Polo
J'espère la fin du règne du cube blanc. De la sacralisation de l'oeuvre. De la neutralité du dispositif. De son équilibre. De la disposition des tableaux à 167 cm du sol. En février, j'avais finalement renoncé à utiliser des cadres dépareillés, renoncé même au cadre. Mais j'espère avoir une autre occasion d'expérimenter ce désordre.

Vieux livres, maisons, visages, Cathy Cullis

«Often small in scale, my work is inspired by a love of art history and folk art. Influences include the 'outsider artist' Madge Gill, who created detailed, patterned ink drawings. Just as Madge Gill worked intuitively, so I use my sewing machine as a drawing tool, to explore an everlasting world of organic movement, figures and gazing faces.
My painting and sketching informs my stitch work and allows me to explore ideas using a different set of tools and dynamics. Paintings are about mark making, expression and pattern. Just as with embroidery, I use improvisation and work intuitively. I see my paintings as visual poems, hints toward stories to be told.
In recent years my writing has become more experimental - I write both poetry and short fiction. I'm these days more interested in the playfulness of language and meaning, and like to explore nature language, art making and history, nostalgia and women's lives.»


Paysages mobiles, Elisabeth Carls

Elisabeth Carls - Changing Landscapes
4.25'' x 6.25''
«Changing Landscapes is a series of 4 one-of-a-kind mixed media works designed to engage their audience and encourage a physical interaction between the viewer and the piece. On the surface the idea is simple—you can change the landscape. On another level, Changing Landscapes presents an un-sequenced narrative. A narrative about our individual sense of place and the ephemeral nature of the world we live in.

Each of the Changing Landscapes consists of cubes and trays built by hand from binder’s board. Each cube is collaged with original photographs printed on Arches paper with Epson Ultra-chrome pigment based inks. The cubes and trays were also painted with walnut ink and a beeswax medium.»

Elisabeth CArls - Afflicted
2.25'' x 4'', 6 pages
«In some ways we are each of us defined by our scars.…
First we are whole, then we are wounded, and finally we are scarred.»
The book was letterpress printed from photopolymer plates, and linoleum blocks on a Vandercook 219. It was printed as a single 8" x 10.5" sheet then map-folded. I use "road map" as metaphor in the text, the structure of the book supports that metaphor as well. Afflicted is laid in a handmade hardcover wrap with bone closure and waxed linen thread. Both the book and it's wrap are sealed with several layers of Renaissance wax.

Quelques livres d'artiste sur Etsy

Jamie Schilling - Further West
5'' x 4'' - Screenprinting and photocopy
«Further West is a five-part investigation of my own experience with gentrification. It tells a family narrative, asks open-ended questions, and provides resources to learn more about the topic.»

Megan - Items from 121 Garden Lane
«A collection of cards housed in a small paper box. Each card has a photograph on the front and all are vaguely enigmatic; a bronze bird sculpture, boxes of cocktail stir sticks, a jar of beach glass. On the backs of the cards are a letter, describing a road trip and including section of news about the trip, familial musings, and the other meaningless-meaningful things we share with our family.»

Badbooks - Paperdreams
A6 blank journal with a dark blue faux leather soft cover. The inside cover is hand painted with a purple, blue and white checkered design. Over 80 pages of assorted paper.

Elizabeth Duffy - Enclosure Exposure

Yuka Petz -  Noun
«Noun is a playful artist’s book about words and their definitions. It is like an exquisite corpse with words. Starting with 27 real English words, each word and its definition has been divided into two parts. By turning the pages, you get to mix and match the word halves to create humorous and nonsensical new words and meanings.»

Conky Cheekweek - On the trapeze
12,5 x 8 cm - 2011
«Designed to hang like a wee single-point trapeze itself, this screenprinted booklet shows several positions on the static trapeze, illustrated in a fun style reminiscent of Victorian-era burlesque and circus shows. (Most of them I've attempted myself, but one I think is technically impossible.)»
