ZUZKA VACLAVIK: MODULARITY

ZUZKA VACLAVIK PRESENTS A SERIES OF SQUARE, ACRYLIC ON PANEL PAINTINGS THAT ARE MEANT TO FUNCTION MODULARLY: EACH PAINTING IS MADE OF SIMPLE SHAPES AND THE ORIENTATION OF EACH WORK CAN BE ALTERED TO SUIT THE VIEWER.

DESIGN ELEMENTS FOUND IN OUR POPULAR CULTURE AND MATISSE’S CUT PAPER WORKS CONTINUE TO BE SOURCES OF INSPIRATION. THE BRIGHT, GRAPHIC NATURE OF THE COMPOSITIONS RELATES THEM BACK TO THEIR SOURCE MATERIAL IN A KIND OF LOOP: VARIOUS FACETS OF OUR CONTEMPORARY VISUAL WORLD, SUCH AS PATTERN AND DESIGN.

VACLAVIK'S WORK IS IN THE PERMANENT COLLECTION OF THE HIGH MUSEUM OF ART AND HAS BEEN EXHIBITED AT MOCA-GA IN ATLANTA, GEORGIA.

LAURA ARTEAGA CHARLTON: STYROVISIONS

“FORM DISSOLVES. INSIDE BECOMES OUTSIDE OBJECT BECOMES SPACE. MY ARTISTIC PRACTICE IS INQUIRY INTO THE NATURE OF PERCEPTION. HOW DO WE PARTICIPATE IN THE CONSTRUCTION OF OUR REALITY? CAN ELEMENTS OF OUR PERCEPTUAL FIELD BE REARRANGED TO FACILITATE A NEW EXPERIENCE OF REALITY? I USE FOUND OBJECTS SUCH AS CARDBOARD BOXES,STYROFOAM PACKING BLOCKS, AND PHOTOS OF THE SPACE BETWEEN THINGS AS THE STARTING POINT IN MY WORK. I AM INTERESTED IN NEGATIVE SPACES, DISINTEGRATING DIGITAL IMAGES AND ALL THAT IS FORGOTTEN AND OVERLOOKED. I CHOOSE THESE THINGS BECAUSE THEY HAVE VERY FEW IDEAS AND MENTAL CONSTRUCTS ATTACHED TO THEM. THEY ARE THEREFORE MORE OPEN TO TAKING ON NEW MEANINGS OR FUNCTIONING AS PORTALS TO THE UNREPRESENTED.”
