“I make sculptures based on paintings in what is traditionally considered a craft medium. In this translation, the sculptural representation of still life painting creates abstract forms. The results are beautifully made objects that simultaneously expose the crude structures of their creation.The pieces are both a simple exploration of residual forms derived from representation and a question regarding the merits of an Art object.” – Dirk Staschke

Mark Moore Fine Art is very pleased to announce the first online exhibition of the work of DIRK STASCHKE in an exclusive featured ARTSY feature this Spring 2018. Dirk Staschke is best known for his exploration of Dutch Vanitas still life themes in the medium of ceramics. His current body of work explores the space in between sculpture and painting. His work often uses meticulous representation as foil for examining skill and craft.

AMY ELKINS featured in Aperture magazine’s “Prison Nation” February 07 – March 07, 2018

Image: Amy Elkins14/38 (Not the Man I Once Was), 2009-2016 / 20×24 (edition of 5), 30×40 (edition of 5) and 40×50 (edition of 5) – Portrait of a man 14 years into his death row sentence, where the ratio of years spent in prison to years alive determined the level of image loss.

Artist AMY ELKINS is currently featured in Aperture magazine’s “Prison Nation” issue and the related exhibition February 07 – March 07, 2018.

https://aperture.org/exhibition/prison-nation-2018/

Incarceration impacts all of us. “Americans, even those who have never been to a prison or had a relative in prison, need to realize that we are all implicated in a form of governance that uses prison as a solution to many social, economic, and political problems,” the Curator, Nicole Fleetwood, notes. Empathy and political awareness are essential to creating systemic change—and through Aperture magazine, and the accompanying exhibition and public programming, “Prison Nation” may provoke us to see parts of ourselves in the lives of those on the inside.

Additional Exhibited Artists: Lucas Foglia / Bruce Jackson / Emily Kinni / Jesse Krimes / Jack Lueders-Booth / Deborah Luster / Chandra McCormick and Keith Calhoun / Zora Murff / Nigel Poor / Joseph Rodriguez / Jamel Shabazz / Sable Elyse Smith / Stephen Tourlentes
