DETAILED EXPLOSIONS

Title

Matei Apostolescu is a freelance illustrator living in Bucharest, Romania. He started out as a graffiti artist and migrated from web design to illustration and most recently clay modeling and animation. Matei’s work, a fusion of different media: drawing, vector, photography, manipulation, even clay modeling, has been attracting constant attention and praise over the years, due largely to his ablity to turn what at first glance may appear to be pure randomness and chaos into a revealing and strangely soothing visual experience.

UNTITLED

 ARTIST: Rebecca Ward     CATEGORY: Solo Exhibition      WHEN: September 03, 2009

Title

My installations are site-specific works dependent upon the space they occupy. Utilizing existing lines, beams, and angles, each piece I create is informed by the individual site and its unique linear movement. Thus, my installations are inherently architectural. I choose patterns and shapes according to detailed measurements of the installation site. Ideally these patterns are numerically symmetrical or somehow numerically balanced, producing a dialogue between line and space.

THIS IS MY BEAUTIFUL DREAM

 ARTIST: Ayşe Küçük     CATEGORY: Solo Exhibition      WHEN: April 02,2009

Title

Milk Gallery hosts Ayse Kucuk’s first solo exhibition. “This Is My Beautiful Dream… Kiss Me” will entertain the artlovers between April 2nd and April 26th. Since 2007, Ayse Kucuk has exhibited her work in Turkey, Romania, Italy and [the] United States. In 2008, her work “Basement of Wonderland” led to her nomination as “The Best New Creative Talent” by young artist supporter Noise in Britain. Most notably, she has worked with Yoko Ono in New York City on a collective project titled “Dreamy Techniques” and her works have received critiques in NY Arts Magazine as well. While this personal exhibition is taking place, Ayşe Küçük’s works will also be exhibited in NYCity APW Gallery.

Interpreting Ayse Kucuk’s works is challenging, but if we consider her interest in contemporary philosophy, we might notice several aspects related to diverse elements such as sexuality, politics, art and language. Ayse Kucuk’s art, with its emphasis on dispersion and its topography of scattered elements, urges us to think in a new fashion in which we focus not on the whole, but on the struggle between different aspects of her work, each of which merit our attention. In Ayse Kucuk’s works, it is possible to recognize non-geometric lines, lines that could have been hands, lines that could have been faces, lines that could have been animals. Dispersion is not the dispersion of separate entities; entities are never scattered but the object is scattered in and out of itself: When the object becomes its could have been, it loses its identity but keeps insinuating the object. Only then we can talk about dispersion properly.The abstract essence of the object forces the object to a rapid transformation. It places the object in a constant flow and creates unstable entities (that remind of other objects) which then give rise to other objects that alter, mutate, mutilate the objects that has given rise to them. Lines define what Foucault would call the “desacralization of space”. They always escape : They escape the painting as much as they escape my words. I could never speak about lines.

 

You may find the opportunity to see her first personal exhibition; welcoming “This is My Beautiful Dream… Kiss Me”; in which she criticised her works with a mocking attitude remarking “I never wanted to wake up but was never afraid of awakening, either”

GREY AREA

 ARTIST: Meredit Dittmar     CATEGORY: Solo Exhibition      WHEN: March 05,2009

Title

Meredith Dittmar is an artist living and playing in Portland OR. Born near Boston Mass, she grew up in a world of pet pigs, horses, hay-forts and spy games . Follow this with an education in computer science, a career in interactive design, a compulsive need to create, and a drive to Seek and you get the major elements of her person and work.

 

Her characters are frequently involved in quiet expressive moments, or lounge facing their audience so they can share their inner space. Dittmar believes it is this space we recognize in ourselves, and through convening in that space, the interconnectedness of all things is revealed. She sees the act of spontaneous artistic creation as part of a larger practice of being present, and a way to better understand herself and reality.

 

Dittmars human-animal-plant-energy amalgams contain threads of common elements and colors to express deep levels of union across themes of biology, technology, and consciousness.
