Pipilotti Rist

I had a difficult time trying to figure out my personal opinion on Pipilotti Rist’s work. It was certainly fascinating but I can not find the reason why I was not overly excited about her work. Her work I Couldn’t Agree with you More, was one that I particularly struggled with defining. Perhaps it had to do […]

Jason Salavon

Jason Salavon has a variety of different series or styles he has worked on, however I personally enjoyed his amalgamations the most. What Salavon does is overlap images so that they create either a cohesive image or an abstraction. In The Class of 1988 & The Class of 1967 for instance, Salavon takes all the graduates […]

Jenny Holzer

However so far Jenny Holzer is my favorite. It is interesting how Holzer’s early work on the projections series was rather simple and it had short phrases. As her work developed it got more complex and […]

Kelli Connell

Connell’s photographs made me stare at them and really try to analyze the differences between the two characters she creates of herself. However […]

Christian Marclay

However what was even more fascinating was the Manga Scroll. Manga Scroll is a sixty-foot hand scroll that is comprised only from […]

Cory Arcangel

Cory Arcangel has a body of work that seems to always be in the continual process of change. Arcangel’s portfolio shows experimentation with and a mastery of many different mediums. From drawing to code to performance, there was an overwhelming variety of work I found when I explored Arcangel’s professional site.   One of the […]

Rashaad Newsome

Rashaad Newsome’s art often has strong connections and is heavily influenced by rap and its culture. In his piece The Tournament done in 2011 this is abundantly clear as the piece includes pairs rapping and then being judged by a panel. Making a mix of the opulent thrones the judges sit on and Newsome’s attire in […]
