Talking Fugue States

Fugue is an altered state of consciousness in which a person may move about purposely and even speak but is not fully aware. Dissociative fugue usually involves unplanned travel or wandering, and is sometimes accompanied by the establishment of a new identity.

In this exhibition, Hector Hernandez and William Hundley combine efforts in a continuation of their collaboration that began with Identity Crisis (2011, grayDUCK Gallery).

Talking “Tiny Park Drawing Annual”

 2012 Drawing Annual

Opening Friday, May 4, 2012, 7pm to 11pm, at 607 ½ Genard Street. The exhibition continues through May 20 and will be available for viewing 12pm – 5pm on Saturdays and by appointment.

 The 2012l Tiny Park Drawing Annual is a group exhibition focused on drawings and the concept of drawing, in the widest terms. The show includes 3-D work that incorporates drawing; drawings made by drilling holes in paper and drywall; and photographs of line drawings made with string. As the name indicates, we hope to have a similar show once a year. This year we will present artworks by Miguel Aragon (Austin), Leah Haney (Austin), David Culpepper (Austin), Stephanie Serpick (NY) and Rob Lomblad (NY).

Stephanie Serpick’s work has been exhibited at Listros Galerie (Berlin), David Weinberg Gallery (Chicago), Scope London, and Paul Kopeikin Gallery (Los Angeles). She received an MFA from the University of Chicago. A Florance Trust residency took her to London in 2004-05.

Miguel Aragon’s work has been exhibited at the International Print Center New York, OSDE Espacio de Arte (Buenos Aires), Austin Museum of Art, and Mexic-Arte Museum (Austin). He received an MFA from UT Austin. He continues a series of multimedia works that addresses the Mexican Drug Cartel Wars.

Talking to Michael A Garcia

Question: Tell me about the artwork in the “Changarrito project” 

o

Upon being asked to participate in the Changarrito project ( http://changarritoprojectwhat.blogspot.com/ ) I was concerned about how to translate my general body of work and creative process into something that can be sold. I’ve never produced works that were either 2D or for sale. To overcome the obstacle of being a conceptual 3D artist, who generally works in large scale, I had to adapt my usual product by creating found object installations and sculptural forms using altered images found online through virtual shopping and scrounging. The digitally manipulted images are then printed on transparencies and bound to plexiglass. I am happy that the final product still seems to capture the overall aesthetic of my other work and I especially like that shipping it is much more cost effective!  I’ve uploaded images of all the pieces at pinterest.com/mrmichaelme/my-work/.

Talking to Marianne C. McGrath

Question: Tell me about “Overgrowth”

“Overgrowth was conceived in the throngs of the heat of last summer in Austin and was finished late in the fall. Although the work is aligned with themes from my most resent body of work, focusing on ideas of reflection on landscapes lost, Overgrowth is my most direct and realistically representative work to date. By employing realistic imagery and form, and juxtaposing actual and unexpected materials, I present the viewer with an alternative idea of the man vs. nature struggle, hoping to leave the viewer questioning which element will, in the end, be triumphant.”
