✨Artist Spotlight: Bushra Shamma ✨

LAST WEEKEND TO VIEW INTERLUDE: UNFINISHED WORKS!
✨Artist Spotlight: Amy Schissel ✨

“Alto Terra,” 2017, Acrylic, ink, graphite, charcoal on paper

Alto Terra is a work in progress. Schissel’s practice is very process-oriented where through the process, the image is constantly 'forming' rather than working from a preconceived 'image formed'. In that way, the pieces are always in a state of flux and intentionally left at various stages of development to emphasize procedural construct over finished product.

Schissel’s work will be on view in “Interlude: Unfinished Works” through January 21, 2018.

✨Staff Favorites by Hannah Son (gallery assistant) ✨

Hi everyone, your gallery assistant here again. My favorites this week are some of the pieces created by Stephanie Law. Her unique style of work entails gold leaf, graphite, watercolor, and incredible amount of details layer upon layer. The meticulous yet spontaneous movement of her lines, the soft, muted, and dreamy color pallet are extremely evocative and speak in volumes. I absolutely adore the world of fantastical and mythological creatures she creates through her paintings.

“Twilight” from Flow series

✨Artist Spotlight: Julie Nagle ✨

“Fragmented Vessel,” 2015, Cast charcoal, glass, resin, steel

This fragmented vessel is part of a larger sculpture, “Orrery,” though the vessels are often shown on their own. These vases are very delicate when viewed from one side, and opaque and solid from the others. Their forms are inspired by archaeologists’ drawings of cross-sections of ancient ceramics. As Nagle sculpts from this mediated source of information, she mimics the archaeologists’ attempt to understand ancient cultures through the resource of surviving objects.

Nagle’s work will be on view in “Interlude: Unfinished Works” through January 21, 2018.

✨Artist Spotlight: Harleen Moon✨
“Happy Dust”, 2017, Glassine, acetate, pencil, ink.

Moon states “I glimpse how a human can be obsessed with objects, and to me, the evidence is an object.”
⚡️
"Perfect Crime" by C.S. Montanye (1930) tells us that crime can never be committed without evidence, and deliberated on the relationship between objects and human trace. If so, then how do we consider traces of evidence? Do we think that the trace of evidence is connected with objects, action, or memory? Moon’s ultimate purpose of making is entertainment and pleasure whether her works are finished. While she is intrigued in found objects and hidden meanings, Moon tries to transform her ideas and playfully interact with viewers through the drawing process. She uses various materials and formats freely and loosely intentionally so that she could emphasize the process of drawing exploration along her theme. She enjoys drawing on different materials and making unfinished marks, which gives her the chance to make free associations with what her drawing means to her.

Moon’s work will be on view in “Interlude: Unfinished Works” through January 21, 2018

✨Artist Spotlight: Katy Mixon✨ "In the Beginning”, 2017, Oil on panel.

Mixon states “In my work, forms are buried under thick, seductive layers of paint, and exposed only through the delicate and aggressive act of carving away the surface. Grounded in a primal, pared-down aesthetic, my paint is both performative and permeable”

@mixdpaint

Mixon’s work will be on view in “Interlude: Unfinished Works” through January 21, 2018

✨Artist Spotlight: Marisa LaGuardia✨
“Deep Submerge”, 2015, Oil on Wood

LaGuardia states “On Earth, our mark is everywhere. I am frantically searching for connections that exist between external things nearby, or something much more distant. To reach out for something is to long to bring it closer to you, but you will never know how far you need to travel if you cannot see clearly”

La Guardia’s work will be on view in “Interlude: Unfinished Works” through January 21, 2018.

✨Staff Favorite by Brigitte✨

Hey everyone! My name is Brigitte, and I am an intern at the Target Gallery. My Staff favorite today is Adrian Piper. I was greatly impacted by the conceptual ideas of Piper’s work, and the alter-ego she performed and utilized in her work for several years. The “Mythic Being” project was a series of photographs, drawings and street performances where Piper would disguise her identity by changing her race, sex, and social class. Piper’s work experimented with public situations and noted societies typical perceptions of identity. •


Piper’s: “The Mythic Being: Sol’s Drawing #1–5”, 1974

Piper’s, "I am the Locus (#1)”, 1975, oil crayon drawing on photograph.

Piper's, "Mythic Being: It Doesn't Matter Who You Are If What You Want To Do To Me Is What I Want You To Do For Me", 1975, color coupler prints.

✨Artist Spotlight: Haeley Kyong ✨

“A Circular Story Teller,” 2016, Arches watercolor paper.

What makes us who we are is truly fascinating, from the visible aspects to the invisible roots, from the outlines of our faces down to our DNA, the unseen code that makes us all. We did not ask to be made this way. We just inherited it without choice. We received it and we are expected to pass it on. This work is inspired by the visual structure of our DNA and the power it has to replicate, spread, and create something. Kyong’s new work on paper, A Circular Story Teller, is an interpretation of the visual form of DNA made from one large piece of paper that is folded using traditional folding technique.

Hardesty’s work will be on view in “Interlude: Unfinished Works” through January 21, 2018.

✨Artist Spotlight: Sarah Hardesty✨

“Untitled,” 2017, Acrylic on wood panel.

This untitled piece was intended to be one of the underpaintings of a series. While the others progressed, the stark and minimalistic nature about the association of lines, marks, and strokes in this work compelled the artist to keep it as it was, free from another layer of paint. The piece is still being considered if it is finished as it is, or if it will be worked on further.

Hardesty’s work will be on view in “Interlude: Unfinished Works” through January 21, 2018.
