In Discussion: An Interview With Sculptor MEGHAN SMYTHE

MMFA has just posted a new “Art Talk” video interview with Meghan Smythe on the Mark Moore Fine Art YouTube Channel for your reference. The video was shot in her studio last month and shows a number of new work and works in progress in addition to those in our current ARTSY exhibition. This short and insightful chat with the artist can be view today at the following link:

In addition, Mark Moore Fine Art is very pleased to present an exclusive ARTSY online exhibition of award-winning sculptor Meghan Smythe titled “Recent Work”, which has been extended through this Sunday, October 21, 2018.

Using a traditional sculptural format (the monument), Meghan Smythe captures contradicting extremes within human gesture: intimacy and brutality, beauty and ugliness, or the lewd and tender. In her attempt to achieve an “elegant vulgarity,” she encapsulates moments that define our mortality in unanticipated ways; oftentimes toeing the delicate line between erotic and macabre tendencies that give way to life, and ultimately death. Glass, ceramic, and concrete are woven together in an elaborate, orgy-like web of body parts and organic artifacts, as if suddenly cast with Pompeii-like circumstances. Like excavated antiquities or fossils, Smythe’s ceramic compositions allude to the cyclical nature of civilization – a dramedy in which all of the players are subject to conquest and demise.

Jason Salavon’s “Homage in Between (Chicago Art, 20th Century)” Debuts in Chicago

Single-channel video, 6K resolution
243′ x 557′. 5m35s. Unique

Jason Salavon’s Homage in Between (Chicago Art, 20th Century) speaks to Chicago’s grand art and design histories as fluid streams of smaller events. This work was debuted Sept 29, 2018 to a live audience of 32,000 people.

Mart_2.720px

Image archives will be used to create poetic complexes of flowing visual history. Dense, organic matrices of images will flow over the surface of theMART. Reproductions of paintings, illustrations, photographs and other visual ephemera will serve as source particulate in an evocative visual symphony of forms.

This experimental projection-mapped video was commissioned by the Terra Foundation for the inauguration of Art on theMART.

The piece presents 5m35s of neural network-driven video exploring image_categories-as-continuous_spaces.  It begins sampling from Chicago art & design history (O’keeffe, Paschke, Marshall, etc) and ends with internet vernacular (cats, cheeseburgers, celebrity faces). The hope is to synthesize incredible work coming out of AI research into an independent, standalone artwork requiring little explanation.

MMFA004-border
Joshua Dildine, Goofy Duck, 2018 / 30 x 24 inches (paper size) / Archival pigment print; Edition of 20 + 2AP

Merging found autobiographical photographs with viciously gestural painting, JOSHUA DILDINE confronts the subject of conventional recollection and familial structure. A fixation shared by society at large, the contemplation of past events and relationships ultimately shapes our psychology moving forward – as a flicker of nostalgia, shame, or glee can be activated by a single sensory cue. With a purposeful cognizance, Dildine mines these memories for the underlying traits that forge our shared humanity: the humor found in the compromising, the endearment found in the aggravating, or the conflict found in the absent. His painterly swaths are as visceral as the family photos they conceal, his vivid palette alluding to the glaring absurdity of our incessant self-analysis and contemplation of the past. In his most recent body of work, Dildine embellishes elements or patterns within the original image in order to create a farcical confrontation with the past – a perspective that is both critical and celebratory. Through this carefully disjointed lens, Dildine creates experiences that are at once present and bygone, and whimsically harnesses nature of our being.

New Limited Edition Works on Paper by Artist JOSEPH ROSSANO

Mark Moore Fine Art is pleased to announce our partnership with Davis Editions to release three new limited edition works on paper by artist JOSEPH ROSSANO just released that I currently can offer you in pre-publication as a special offer. All three of these works are editions of just ten and are current available now in pre-publication for just $300.

EDNA is not a long lost relative, or partner, though she is the love of my life.” says artist Joseph Rossano.

“She is also the love of many of our lives: she is, in many ways, our mother earth. “EDNA” is an acronym for environmental DNA (eDNA), the biological trace of organisms that have been present in surrounding water, soil, or air. Instead of finding and capturing organisms in open water, or even a shovelful of earth, then individually extracting their DNA , we can isolate and, en masse, read DNA left behind in the environment itself, using bioinformatics tools to identify the individual organisms from which the DNA was sloughed.”

These works, published in association with Davis Editions, are wonderful examples of the artists best work. Davis Editions uses archival pigment inks and 100% cotton rag paper to create museum-quality prints that are fully archival. Each of these works is a limited edition of just twenty with two artists proofs. Once an edition is sold out, those prints are no longer available. Each print is hand-stamped and numbered on the back by Davis Editions and validated with a certificate of authenticity. The certificate includes pertinent information about the print including publication date, print number, and edition size, and is signed and dated by the publisher.

JOSEPH ROSSANO
Oncorhynchus mykiss, The Steelhead, 2018
Archival pigment print
Image Size: 10 x 14 inches / Paper Size: 20 x 24 inches
Edition of 10 + 2AP

Rossano continues, “The biological equivalent of the tip of an iceberg, these fragments of being quite literally expose the DNA of previous visitors, extinct or extant, invasive or endemic and their ecological milieus across time. DNA can be extracted from an ice core and used to identify a mastodon as well as the flora (and their pollen) through which it lumbered. These organisms have not lived in this world for 10,000 years and yet their genetic remnants – a record of their individual natural histories – reveal a place in the past that was, previously unrecognizable and unreachable, even while held in one’s hand.”

“My EDNA works pay homage to place. Water, soil and air nurtured the forests from which each artwork is constructed, hosting many increasingly rare species. Reflecting the concept of eDNA, I depict animals that lived in these forests, exposing them on the environment’s salvaged remnants – plywood, cedar, ash, tar and more.”

JOSEPH ROSSANO
Sorex reticulatus, The Reticulated Shrew, 2018
Archival pigment print
Image Size: 10 x 14 inches / Paper Size: 20 x 24 inches
Edition of 10 + 2AP

“EDNA”, as perceived through our five and more senses, is a sampling of organisms and their daily life, imagery, material and place, united in composing a much larger narrative of life – all life.

Joseph Rossano’s exhibition EDNA conveys a deep admiration for nature, science and history. While the interdisciplinary systems of the natural world are highlighted through his works, Rossano’s show serves as a sampling of different organisms and their connections to one another. Through a wide range of materials, Rossano composes a broad narrative that taps into the viewer’s senses and demands a profound consideration for the vastness of life.
