A collaboration via newsletter with Geremia Design.
IN CONVERSATION WITH...
For a long time now I wanted to create a platform to enable members of the art and design world to share their background, process, and projects. Introducing "In Conversation With...", — a curated collection of art, design, and happenings with local art and design-world innovators.
For our inaugural newsletter, we've collaborated with Brion Nuda Rosch, artist, curator and studio director at San Francisco's Minnesota Street Project. I value his opinions and advice and I'm excited to be kicking this off with him.
We're excited to share our love of art and design and hope this newsletter is a source of inspiration.
- Lauren Geremia
We are pleased to introduce artists and their available works. Want to view the works in person? Inquires please email: email@example.com
We also want to encourage you to get out, take part, show up and experience. To that end, we provide links to exhibits we're excited about, music arranged by OK Great Thanks! and news related to the art and design world. Thanks for reading along, we hope you enjoy the program.
Gregory Kaplowitz + Masako Miyazaki
Gregory Kaplowitz uses cyanotype emulsion as a photoreactive dye on various textiles to create photograms responding to environments that the artist spends concentrated time in. Once the fabrics have been dyed with the cyanotype emulsion, the light sensitive textiles are placed within the landscape of various locations - woven around plants, submerged in the ground, and hidden within architecture. Then over many hours, they slowly expose an image under the shifting ambient sunlight to create a unique distillation of that particular time and place.
The resulting cyanotype photograms are then either hung as tapestries, banners or flags, or, are then clothed, skinned, or shrouded with additional layers of manipulated textiles into the form of stretched and wrapped layered paintings.
If extremes mark the outermost bounds, then the space within consists of everything we may know. Masako Miyazaki’s work focuses on the forms that emerge and dissipate in this intermediate space.
”Temple No. 1 ~ 6”— are evidence of sacred spaces found within the detritus of consumerism. Cast from packing forms used to protect merchandise such as electric toothbrushes and hard drives, these plaster forms evoke architecture both of an ancient past and a not-so-distant future. While these forms convey an alluring vernacular of industrialized processes of the present day, they also echo the religious architecture of the ziggurats of ancient Mesopotamia.
Masako Miyazaki - “Drawings from the “At Fault” series come directly from the conflict between my Japanese and American self. Resembling the geological shift of Earth’s tectonic plates, the two sides of my cultural identity violently collide to create a rich and irrepeatable mark. Echoing the archipelago of Japan, I see this mark as my inevitable self, and in the unmarked folds, the unconscious self. Each piece from this series indicates the many possibilities of identities that can arise out of such similar circumstances. Greatly influenced by my mother as a calligrapher, these drawings portray the shades of controllability within the inescapable uncontrollability of life.”
