Heather Goodchild

Heather Goodchild’s work strives to uncover and explore stories and symbols with universal resonance. Focussing on textiles as a medium, she creates felt portraits, rugs, quilts, silk screened prints, soft sculpture, and dioramas. Much of the inspiration for her techniques and approach comes from folk art and traditional music. The naive and anonymous quality of these deceptively simple works provides a window into shared human experiences. The stories and symbols of organized religions and societies also strongly influence her work; the rituals and literature of Freemasonry and Christianity and their codified expressions of collective ideals and mythologies fascinate her especially. Through the installations and objects that she creates, Goodchild engages the viewer in stories that are at once mysterious and hauntingly familiar.

Daniel Fuchs was born in 1966 in Alzenau, Germany. Geo Fuchs was born in 1969 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Both currently live and work in Neuberg, near Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Since 1993, Daniel and Geo Fuchs have created work that thematically focuses on borders and border experiences. For at least four years they have explored the themes of life and death. In 1996, they began photographing (with the 4×5 camera) different scientific collections in Europe. They interested themselves in animals such as fish, mammals, and reptiles conserved in alcohol. In their photographs, the animals maintain a remarkable sense of life in death. ‘ (via LipanjePuntin Artecontemporanea)

New York architecture practice Axis Mundi have designed a conceptual extension to the Whitney Museum of American Art in Manhattan, featuring a giant lattice structure. The existing museum is a 1960s concrete building by Marcel Breuer and Axis Mundi claim the extension’s exposed concrete frame would be a continuation of Breuer’s brutalist aesthetic. The extension would have an irregular floor plan configured around sight lines that look towards landmarks such as the Empire State Building. Link here.

” Systems in nature, like the self-similarity of fractals, are my motivation. They expose life’s minutiae – a hidden vitality beneath the surface. I replicate repetition in nature through detailed process-oriented sculpture. I channel energy into meticulous organization and establish a sense of order through the assemblage of objects. My materials are industrial, chosen with the intent of being re-contextualized when combined en masse. Within installations, the context of site chiefly determines the final form. ” – Brian Jobe

For the last three years, Isoe has been living in Europe as a freelance artist, observer and wanderer. His work has been seen on the streets of Australia, Thailand, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, Czech Republic and Germany.
