Studio Visit

My work considers the idea that symbolic and ideological systems can be activated and re-imagined through collaboration, imaginative play and masquerade. To effect this re-imagining objects, bodies, and landscapes are constructed to immerse us in the logic of another place.

In many ways my works become the repository of the dreams and ideas of the many people who participate in producing and imagining the contours of the works. In the tradition of the fable or folk story, I map the desires and ideas of people to create narratives that attempt to be relevant to a contemporary audience.-Saya Wolkfalk Artist Statement

Studio visits

Over the weekend, I had the chance to get together with 3 artists for the Feb exhibition. My favorite part of the curating process is to get to know the artists and hearing about their in-depth point of view.

Jeff Sims' conceptual still life are absolutely stunning

Next up on my radar... The February show

The exhibition examines the fascinating past and present practices of artists representing contemporary culture and the power of identity across different art genres. The artworks take on challenging and controversial topics as well as inspire artists of subsequent generations to reconsider the theme of black history.

Co-curated by Heather Hart and Jun Lee @ Ogilvy & Mather New York, February 17, 2011.
