Boxi

Boxi <-- lives and works in Berlin, Germany. He creates hand cut multi-layered life size stencils that he exhibits in galleries and on street walls. It is often their placement within the installation or urban landscape that completes and defines their action, enabling the work to interact with the space. It is within this collaboration that the material boundaries of the work are dissolved, affecting the perception of the image.

” Human consciousness occupies a myriad of frequencies. There exists a tiny space between the conscious realm and subconscious sleep, the wake of life, or the slipstream of consciousness. This often overlooked and briefly occupied slipstream is a very powerful space – a space where time loses its grip and mythologies are born. This experience fascinates me. I make a daily effort to be observant and diligent while in this space and to try to record what happens there. More often than not, I am occupied with a sense of falling that accompanies the loss of consciousness, or the sense of confusion brought about by the mind trying to define its state and realizing that it is neither awake nor asleep. In the time that it has taken one to read these last couple of sentences, the mind may slip into dreamtime. Once in a great while and with great effort, one may find them self conscious of the transition and make note of it. For as Kahlil Gibran wrote, “And the treasure of your infinite depths would be revealed to your eyes.” I have found it to be a fantastic and mysterious space, where physics and canons are turned on their heads, colors become as logical as numbers, and events move too fast for language. This is the threshold where the memories of the day rush and elbow to try to get a spot in the cinema of one’s dreams. The ones that make it through are immediately transformed into something that defies tenets of ratiocination. Keeping in line with the methodology of thousands of years of tradition, it is from this well of mystery that I drink for my imagery. I believe that this space is the birth place of art. Through digging as deeply as possible and blending the images of other frequencies of consciousness with concepts from my daily experience, my work can represent more of my total self. ” – Thomas Schneider

” The intent in my work is to address issues / relationships between human and animal. These issues manifest themselves on various stages . I choose to neither preach, accuse nor explain . I simply allow this theatre to unfold before the viewer. I refer to the viewer directly by the use of representational vocabulary. I often create multiple dualities in my drawings both of association and emotions . I seek to delve into the experiences that will touch the inner psyche and the gut…. ” – Donalee Peden Wesley

” Although I was born and raised in the United States, there is no doubt that my sculpture has been significantly influenced by my trips to Europe. In fact, having been trained as a painter, I may not have started sculpting had it not been for the semester I spent in Rome in 1987 or at the very least, it may have taken me longer to realize that I prefer three dimensions over two. While there, I was especially impressed by traditional marble sculpture, particularly, the work done by three classical giants: Michelangelo, Dontatello and Bernini. But never once did I entertain the (currently popular) idea that their work is superficial, trivial, or even trite, primarily because it has been so popular, particularly with the masses. So, quite content with the vulgar appeal of representational sculpture, I returned to the U.S. and began working in wood, which was the only medium available to me; I made George at this time. But in the back of my mind, I was certain that I would eventually work in some kind of stone. However, over the next few years, I grew attached to the warmth and unpredictability of the wood. I was hooked. ” – Stefanie Rocknak

Peter Land

‘ The Danish artist Peter Land is well-known for his humorous and often self-ironic video art, productions which explore the absurdity of life and man’s frequently failed conduct in the world. Peter Land moves freely between video, photo, performance and installation works and more traditional types of work in drawing, gouache and oil paint. In the various media he stages a tragicomic male figure, modeled on the artist’s own body or simply played by Peter Land. Consistently the works are executed with an evident reference to the artist himself, in that Land appears in different but always immediately recognizable characters in the bulk of his pieces. Common to the works is also the depicted male figure’s lack of command of the situation. Thus the inadequacy and the fundamental lack of control are recurrent features in Peter Land’s works. ‘ (via Arken)
