The EDNA Silhouettes” are provoked by the events of 2020. Collective angst prompted by a global pandemic, it’s associated shutdowns, quarantine, and travel restrictions, have resulted in a cloistering of ourselves and our families. It has engendered near monastic isolation — visits occurring in the ethers — cybernetically — as if our lives have become virtual realities.

For those in urban locales, confronting societal issues connected to race, gender, and economic inequality, organized demonstration, and rebellion have served as a counterpoint to others isolating themselves from the world. Such extremes in human behavior have, no doubt, resulted from prolonged introspection and rumination, a function of too much time alone.

As unrest has swept across the world, global climate change has not relented — forests — photosynthetic carbon sinks — have been ablaze. Creatures emblematic of the wild places that bring us hope have experienced another type of jeopardy. Their homes have been in question. And, as we come to understand why, the mirror turns on ourselves.

How will we conduct our lives moving forward to reverse an annual season of ash-filled skies? The silhouettes of these works portray animals as shadows moving through the ash of our time. The animal’s opaque outlines, rendered in tar, stand out against a turbid atmosphere — sine waves of our time over which they have no control. Their undiminished forms offer a hope that together, we will stand with an atmosphere over which we can take action.

Joseph Rossano, born to clinicians and research scientists, graduated from Louisiana State University as an artist. His path joined him, via mentorship, collaboration, and exhibition, with renowned artists and institutions including Dale Chihuly, Judy Pfaff, The Pilchuck Glass School, Waterford Crystal, Museum of Glass, the South Australia Museum, and Google. Integrating cutting edge technology and science with his art, Rossano engages and challenges the viewer to reflect upon mankind’s impact on our planet and its varied ecosystems. Much of Rossano’s youth was spent in New York’s Hudson Valley and Catskill Mountains, formative years that evolved a life focused on creating environmental awareness through Art. Rossano now lives and works 65 miles north of Seattle, his home and studio nestled in the temperate rain forests of the Pacific Northwest.

Though formally varied, these artists and thier works frequently manipulate the roles of individual elements arranged in diverse visual populations. This often unearths unexpected patterns as the relationship between the part and the whole, the individual and the group, is explored. 

Reflecting a natural attraction to popular culture and the day-to-day, their work regularly incorporates the use of common references and source material – the internet, Google, television, Flickr, catalogs, books, eBay, and Craigslist have all been the source of the data used in these artists works. The final compositions are exhibited as art objects, such as photographic prints and video installations, while others exist in a real-time software context. 

All in all, these artist harvest this data as their palette to generate and reconfigure masses of communal material to present new perspectives on the familiar.

Heidi Schwegler (b. 1967 in San Antonio, TX) explores a wide range of materials in the service of her subject matter. She is drawn to the peripheral ruin, modifying discarded objects to give them a new sense of purpose. There is an equilibrium inherent in such things – they float between endurance and decay, a living death. In this exclusive ARTSY online exhibition, we survey the recent work of this fascinating artist. 

Schwegler’s numerous shows include exhibitions at the Co/Lab Art Fari (CA), Raid Projects, (CA), Platform China (Beijing), Scope Art 2004 (NY), and the Hallie Ford Museum (OR). Schwegler is a recent Ford Family Fellow, received a 2010 MacDowell Colony Fellowship and several RACC Individual Project Grants. Reviews of Schwegler’s work have appeared in Art in America, Daily Serving, ArtNews and the Huffington Post. She earned her MFA from the University of Oregon and is Chair of the MFA in Applied Craft + Design, a joint program of Oregon College of Art and Craft, and the Pacific Northwest College of Art.

Ending Sunday: “Selected Landscapes from Black Is The Day, Black Is The Night” by AMY ELKINS

Mark Moore Fine Art is proud to present Selected Landscapes from Black Is The Day, Black Is The Night by AMY ELKINS

VIEW THIS EXHIBITION NOW AT: https://bit.ly/2FcqLjm

Amy Elkins (b. 1979 Venice, CA) is a photographer currently based in the Greater Los Angeles area.  She received her BFA in Photography from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. She has been exhibited and published both nationally and internationally, including at The High Museum of Art in Atlanta, GA; Kunsthalle Wien in Vienna, Austria; the Center for Creative Photography in Tucson, AZ; the Minneapolis Institute of Arts; North Carolina Museum of Art; Light Work Gallery in Syracuse, Aperture Gallery and Yancey Richardson Gallery in New York, De Soto Gallery in Los Angeles, the Houston Center for Photography in Houston, TX among others. 

Elkins has been awarded The Lightwork Artist-in-Residence in Syracuse, NY in 2011, the Villa Waldberta International Artist-in-Residence in Munich, Germany in 2012, the Aperture Prize and the Latitude Artist-in-Residence in 2014 and The Peter S. Reed Foundation Grant in 2015.

Elkins’ first book Black is the Day, Black is the Night won the 2017 Lucie Independent Book Award.  It was Shortlisted for the 2017 Mack First Book Award and the 2016 Paris Photo-Aperture Foundation Photobook Prize as well as listed as one of the Best Photobooks of 2016 by TIME, Humble Arts Foundation, Photobook Store Magazine and Photo-Eye among others.

Her work stems out of an exploration of masculinity and male identity often within constructed or impermanent environments.  Elkins’ earlier work, Wallflower (2004-2008), looks into the nuances of gender identity, vulnerability and the female gaze.  She later went on to investigate aspects of male identity and athleticism through projects Elegant Violence (2010),  where she documented young Ivy League rugby players moments after a game and Danseur (2012), looking to young male ballet dancers moments after intensive training.   

In 2016 Elkins returned to the Wallflower portrait.  Though unlike the original series, which aimed the lens at cisgender men almost entirely photographed within her personal space, Wallflower II explores a much broader sense of masculine identity- shot in the personal space of strangers in urban and rural Georgia upon first meeting and found through online calls / searches surrounding ideas of masculinity and gender in the American South. The work aims to confront socially constructed ideas and standards surrounding both gender and masculinity, vulnerability and beauty.

In 2009 Elkins began working on Black is the Day, Black is the Night, which stretched over a span of 8 years.  The project explores how memory and notions of self are impacted by isolation and long term imprisonment.  This work was made directly through correspondence with men serving life and death row sentences in some of the most maximum security prisons in the US.  It is often shown side by side with Parting Words, a visual and macabre archive created out of state sourced material of the 500+ prisoners to date executed in the state of Texas.
