James Tisdale Ceramic figurative sculpture

2

The work is a study of my place in the world through the influences of growing up in a devout rural family in Mississippi. It is a place of conflicting beauty and harsh ugliness. A study of what is deemed beautiful to one, often differs from another. Beauty can be discovered in many places, especially in the “socially� unaccepted, if one takes the time to look pass the surface. This is the essence of my latest series.

I have always been fascinated by color and light. These two elements are used to express the inter-connectivity of all things. The sprinkling of gold on many paintings symbolize the spirit that permeates and bestows sacredness on life. Art should inspire us, train us to see beauty around us, and help us to visualize the bond that connects us to others and to our environment.

I find discarded objects to create dilapidated machines and eccentric animals in my artwork. Animals have been a perennial theme in my artwork. Therefore, the series of ‘Animal Fables’ shadow box pieces I have worked on, and for the past year has been an ideal vehicle for me to tell stories through the bits and pieces of junk that crowd my studio

Sticks and Stones . . . In my work, I use discarded elements from nature that are often overlooked, featuring their natural aesthetic presented in a graceful, refined composition to give them new life. This desire to see elegance in the ordinary not only defines me as an artist, but guides me as a person.

JR Rapier Acrylic, large scale canvas paintings

10a

Born in 1973 in Dallas, Texas, artist JR Rapier began painting as a young girl. With her work, Rapier vividly portrays the power and emotion in objects of nature through a poetic style all her own. A long-time admirer of Georgia O’Keefe, Rapier explores this theme in magnified paintings, capturing the remote beauty and magnificence of light, color and structure in some of nature’s most intriguing phenomena.

Elizabeth Crandall // Guest of JR Rapier Jewelry Elizabeth Crandall’s unpredictable combinations of colors and elements are inspired by her deep love of the planet, a highly adventurous spirit and her irresistible sense of style. Using only genuine gemstones and natural components, this artisan creates in her jewelry that which she seeks in life -- balance, authenticity, beauty, strength and light. Her creations flatter nature by mimicking the movements within it.

10c

I have mostly been drawn to nature for my subject matter. In addition to the awe inspiring beauty of it all, nature offers me visual complexity and sometimes a calm simplicity. So many possibilities to translate freely into a painting—colors, shapes, scale, texture, shadows and light. If I can capture that in my painting, I hope the viewer might be moved and drawn closer toward what they see.

Although I have made art all my life, I didn’t embrace that passion until later. I grew up in inner city Houston during the 80’s. I studied accounting at Austin Community College. I have lived in New York, San Francisco and Detroit (1 year each) where I mostly studied music. I have held 37 jobs, my current IRS job being my 37th. Although my experiences in music & accounting have been good, I long to make and sell visual art.

Ismael Cavazos // Art In A Nutshell Peanut carving, painting, drawing I specialize in extracting resemblances from the patterns around us, such as clouds, woodgrain, scribbles, and yes, peanuts. As the world’s only peanut carver, I grow my own peanuts, roast them, and then carve them - this is true underground art! The amazing part about the Old Man in the Peanut carvings is that I only added the body, as nature supplied the head and beard. I personalize this art by also extracting images from art patron’s scribbles.

I see my surroundings filled with emotions that correspond to a color, shape, and texture, often mixing my senses in an unconventional way. A sunny morning tastes like a tart, sweet Honeycrisp apple and vibrates like riding the back of a fat, hairy bumblebee. I use art to share my unique, sensual experiences and believe an intriguing photograph that elicits emotion, invites comment, or inspires thought is one step to an unforgettable painting.

My artistic process is a cathartic one. It’s a way for me to cleanse myself of anxiety, to let my imagination run wild and play with possibility, to renew my spiritual ideals, to explore relationships, and to gain insight into my own unconscious drives, fears, and impulses. I lose myself in the process; I find myself, again and again, in the product.

Sarah Collins // S. Collins Art Textile collage Stitched pieces were once supposed to be tidy - front and back - but I want to bring the process to the forefront and show the heavy mess of stitches and hanging threads that pull together fabric, clothing, and scraps in my abstract collages. By both flipping the individual pieces of fabric and by leaving edges unfinished, my work continually plays with the idea of “wrong” versus “right” sides of textile.

Aimi Dunn Painting, sculpture

“Metamorphosis” represents my sense of wonder in the everyday, the mysterious beauty of life unfolding. I lay down a classical foundation and then reinterpret it with modern sensibilities, employing a series of layered representations of thoughts, moods, and feelings. Never leaving the cocoon, the womb, the nest or the pod is a life not lived. This series has helped me want to become the butterfly I’ve been suppressing for so long.

I am inspired by the unpredictability of natures hand, a lifelong love of biology, and the exploration of different cultures. The source of my design is often derived from the organic lines and patterns I capture in nature photography. For me, sculpting rhythm and motion into steel and precious metals gives a sense of strength and permanence in an impermanent world.

My stone and wood sculptures are the result of repetitive and derivative interpretations of the ancient Asiatic Bi and Cong. These small jade ritual objects referencing the sky and earth have been associated with Shaman dating from 5,000 BC. In my series of physical translations, I seek to express the connection these symbols have had throughout societies from antiquity to the present.

David Bjurstrom // Guest of Roger Foster Drawing in graphite pencil My work in graphite pencil is drawn in a very detailed and realistic style, approached as if paintings rather than drawings. It’s all about light, shadow and texture and less about ‘line’. Often said to “look like photographs”, they go far beyond that with a clarity of subject not possible in a photograph and an undefined nature that evokes an emotional response. I am working to take the medium of pencil to a place it has never been.

My work, whether constructed, painted, or collaged comes from an intuitive process - it is unplanned; there is no vision of the end in mind. I work predominately with my non-dominant hand. Simply put, this gets me “out of my head� and allows me to draw/paint in an unpracticed manner, and brings the work a step closer to something unadulterated by the thinking mind.

Within the invented spaces of my paintings I playfully interpret bodily experience, speaking to the fluidity of definition. I purposefully create a visual questioning of realities, an appreciation of the absence of truth and a celebration in toying with contradiction. The scenes of amorphous, colorful forms that intermingle within an indefinable space speak to indeterminacy as a powerful force for the individual and collective, alike.

When a viewer connects to the image, a bond is formed. My subjects often reflect things past, and the emotional adoration, or negativity we hold to them.

ANGUESER Oil painting

73

Fundamentally, my creative process is about trans-formative sexual energy. I am not, however, interested in showing the explicit but the implicit when I start a composition, I start with the explicit to take me to different things. My training is in the school of painting, the school where I am continually developing my work. Perhaps because of that, my work, the painting has a trace of the explicit in its trajectory.

Christina Berry // Pleasant Valley Ranch Photography With her photography, Christina tends to avoid standard portraiture and stunning vistas, instead training her lens on traditionally less photogenic subject matter. Her goal is to find beauty in the mundane and forgotten parts of our disappearing history. She enjoys the challenge of conveying a story with images, but failing that she at least would like to capture an image in a way most might not have considered.

I find inspiration on a daily basis in the wide range of visual information that exists in the urban landscape. These details are then translated, or sometimes altogether reinterpreted, into my work via photography, drawing, painting, screen printing, and ultimately collage. The end result displays a process of intricate and intuitive recombination and organization: unexpected, but surprisingly familiar.

Rebecca Bennett // Big Medium Oil painting Because I use the sensual qualities of oil - I create layered abstractions which explore the dynamics of color, line, and texture. The viewer is encouraged by their abstraction to interpret their experience of the work rather than the work itself. My work is born of a manipulation of oil paint while the canvas lies on a flat, horizontal surface. I use brushes, palette knife, and/or mineral spirits to move the color. The paint and oil create jewels.

Until last year, my emotional side dictated most of my abstract painting. With my paper and canvas paintings, it’s not unusual for me to let loose and make a mess of my surroundings. However, I now find myself revealing the obsessive and perfectionist side through time consuming 3-D wood artwork. Even though the two styles of work are contradictory, both types allow me to get lost in my work and give my “split personalities” a voice.

Gabriel Rodriguez // Guest at Big Medium Painting, drawing, mixed media My work comes from constantly daydreaming about alternate universes and the wealth of what-if questions I collect daily. I’ve always been curious to those types of questions - all the way to the point of literally being forbidden from asking them at school. The spirit lives on though in my illustrations of surreal locales, diagrams of invented biology, or simply abstractions made while actually daydreaming.

Barra Gustafson // Pigoata Studios Painting

98a

Currently, I build multi layered paintings through self expression and thirst to explore my boundaries. I search to find joyful and playful ways to be spontaneous during the process, and rely heavily on intuitive responses. The excitement of not knowing what will happen next generates a high level of energy that keeps me in the moment. Painting allows me total freedom to be me while following the desires of my heart.

Aspects of vintage and couture photography - dramatic compositions, bold lines and the sense of something timeless and unattainable - inspire my figurative work. In my non-representational work, color and composition become my subjects. I am interested in exploring and utilizing the natural fluidity of my materials, focusing on aesthetics and technique. I work primarily with India ink and acrylic on both paper and canvas.

I am drawn to create art that is rich in color, texture, imagery and form.I work primarily in encaustic. Beeswax, organic in nature, allows me a freedom to explore the continuation of a journey that can begin with a random thought, an emotion or a dream. Using layers of wax, lines, marks and discarded objects, I intuitively assemble abstract concepts into paintings and collages that resonate and express life as I know it.

Linda Wandt Oil painting Many of my works for the last few years have been fairly straightforward portraiture to hone my technical skills, and to explore color theory. I enjoy using the immediacy of expressionism to make a specific emotive statement, and I use surrealism to explore more complex issues of internal dialogue. I sometimes distort or alter the human form to express my concepts, often focusing on duality within the self. I also paint fun things, like llamas.

Having a 3-year-old and a baby, it is nearly impossible to dig into a nice big oil painting. Out of necessity, I’ve changed my medium and changed my scale. I have also been spending a lot of time staring at babies, so it naturally followed that I changed my subject. I suppose that means having children really did change everything.

Nicole Jeffords // Studio L // Pump Project Art Complex Oil on canvas Nicole Jeffords is a portrait painter who works on a commission basis and whose very real and expressive style has often been compared to Alice Neel. Nicole’s technique involves multiple layers of thinly-applied oils and glazes yielding a soft, almost pastel-like effect. People who see her work invariably say that it is haunting and that the internal life of the sitter shines through.

I try to observe events, human interactions, and personal perspectives to become more conscious of my own emotional responses and to find metaphors for experience. My findings become the phrases used in my work that are journalistic in nature and describe a universal struggle of reflection.

Darvin Jones // Studio I // Pump Project Art Complex Acrylic painting I take paint and a canvas and create what is termed a painting. These paintings are then called art. To make art I add ideas + expressions then subtract layers of time and movements. I search for an emotive quality until the painting tells me its time to stop. Then once the paint dries other people look and critique them, sometimes they say they are good or bad or to this or to that.

We are the 2000’s Artists. We drive old Honda Accords and pay our bills on time. We juggle day jobs, real lives, even kids, as well as our artistic endeavors. We are not reckless, crazed nor irresponsible. We can’t afford to be. Some days, many of us, secretly wish we weren’t artists at all. Yet no amount of Swedish furniture, good advice or television saturation makes us give it up. So we go on. And we know it may lead us into madness.

Kai Martin // Pump Project Art Complex Painting, drawing I am trying to draw out a subjective depiction of figures in suggestive scenarios that are both emotionally and conceptually dense. My visual sensibility is tied to memory and the way recall affects our personal stories, revisiting them imprecisely but with great emotion. It is important to me to keep a sense of play, a sense of bright humor in the work, although the ideas driving it may be darker than the colorful work suggests.

My current work involves narratives of how memories double the space of your existence. The paintings embrace the indelible imprint of people and places that have gone before me. An absence can be a highly charged presence in one’s life. The ghost still lingers.They are meditations on the world within and the push and pull of the universe without.

Court Lurie // Court Lurie Fine Art // ARTPOST Contemporary abstract painting The process of creating each work is a dialogue that unfolds in the moment. I am constantly negotiating a balance between trusting the intuitive, gestural impressions that come, or relying on my experience with intentional, calculated placement of color and form. Saturation, layers, hue, transparency, content, form and texture intermingle to create an exchange that compositionally comes alive when balance and harmony are achieved.

For some, art happens on the fringes; for me, it is lurking in the recesses between linear thoughts and the chaotic deluge of information in the world around us. I work with numbers and words that in a cumulative state transform into textures and patterns of their own. I specifically draw upon eroded information-weathered posters, disintegrating maps and faded signage-to depict an environment.

After studying painting at the San Francisco Art Institute, he drifted between San Francisco and Houston, eventually landing in Austin.

His shrines to selfdestruction reveal an unapologetic honesty.

There is an infinitesimally thin surface that separates two spaces; I love the idea of being in that threshold, perceiving the innate power of liminal space.

Utilizing a discovery based studio practice to mediate these ideas and visualizations, I merge my artistic themes with scientific research in such a way that both become more approachable for the viewing public.

These transformative reconciliations are surveyed through studio processes that consist of regenerative acts of material destruction.

Spencer Cook // 618 Tillery Direction, collage, printmaking, sculpture I conceive all of my work as a series of steps to be executed by another. I organize the labor, gather the materials, and designate when a piece is finished though my hands rarely perform any of the actual work. To alleviate the anxiety I feel over my lack of participation, I choose processes that behave unexpectedly and resist control, allowing them to generate whatever humanizing effect a hand might provide.

My furniture pieces are well planned, tightly fit and finished.My sculpture is the opposite. By lacking tightly fit joinery and finish, they evolve as they are built with little planning. With my sculpture I have embraced what some would consider flaws, and instead of hiding them, I illuminate them with light exposing their inner beauty.

My paintings explore the need to seek out order. When seen from above, the landscape becomes a tapestry of interweaving influences between nature and the marks carved upon it by humanity to codify sections of terrain, delineate ownership, and facilitate our use of the land. In my work I pare down the idea of landscape to a textured surface of paint to reveal an intersection of the raw, natural environment and the ordered grid we project upon it.

In my work, I experiment with the variation in color and shapes through contrast, movement, and symmetry. Some of my work is inundated with geometric abstraction of color and a dynamic composition of repetition and progression of lines. I am currently experimenting with the incorporation of new materials such as Plexiglas and fishing line, developing new work that pushes the boundaries of the language of structure and aesthetic expression.

Knowing this, it’s easy to draw a correlation between the twisting interlocking lines that I paint, and the sprawling web of tracks that crisscross my life.

(All on its own, a stiff cat will interject into the most serious of compositions, or a point will grow out of the head of an otherwise very sincere lady.) I collect vintage and antique frames and use them for my pieces when they suit the mood.I’m at a new venue this year, and hope to see all the wonderful people I met during the 2011 tour!

Jolene Ropiak // Guest at Phoenix Trades Depot Painting Jo Ropiak (Unicorn Martini) is passionate about bringing her worldview to life. Her art makes an onlooker feel like they are truly experiencing life beyond the looking glass. Jo’s signature style is to incorporate three dimensional elements into her artwork to compliment the piece. Each and every element is intentional and symbolic. Issues of vanity, passion, narcissism, self-esteem, sexuality, love, and anger are explored in depth in her work.

I’m an East Austin artist exploring how to incorporate and echo contemporary technologies in art, the perennial question of how we engage in art, and a passion for tiny things. The results include interactive sculptures, mini worlds, ‘toys’, and a great many endeavors which defy my attempts at labeling. The MAKER movement has been a great impetus for this work, and the ATX Hackerspace an amazing resource facilitating the actualization of it.

The ordinary becomes extraordinary. Hidden artistry is found in the most mundane of subjects; a garbage dumpster, an abandoned building, debris on a river bank. When natural objects are not represented realistically their origins are not obvious. This creates an opportunity for growth and expansion.

It is in that instant, when they are lost in their own private thoughts and emotions creating a memory, that I know we will share a connection forever.

Working with the found object has inspired me for 20 some odd years now. After a trip to Antigua, Guatemala in 1992 where I learned metalsmithing, I have incorporated that aspect into my works. These days I am doing more political commentary and making the works interactive. I still make lots of yard art and home accessories. This year I am offering up some of my precious objects on the wall and in the yard for sale.......

TWO VEHICLE EVENTS

• start.

• stop.

Summer, 1961

—wrote George Brecht fifty-one years ago. It seems obvious; driving a vehicle, one starts it then one stops it. It is an action repeated several times a day, usually everyday. Yet Brecht’s Two Vehicle Events makes this many-times-a-day action an art performance. Also it’s a work performed by Brecht’s audience rather than Brecht himself, who simply wrote the script. And Brecht was not the only artist of the time who wrote instructions to their viewers. Consider Yoko Ono’s instruction paintings, for example:

send send something you can’t count.

These aren’t really art-objects. The physical aspects of these are simply directions; announcements that something is going to happen—much like the flyers for Dada events—all are statements about or descriptions of lived events. Their existence depends on the viewer’s willingness not only to perform the action and be part of it, but also to consider the action a performance, to become increasingly aware of the multiple details of their lives. This was an art meant to enrich life not simply by providing pretty or thought-provoking things, but to place the work more viscerally within the everyday; and thence, to transform life. Such ways of interacting with the public to create art continue; the MASS collective’s first event for EAST asks the public to enter their studio space and draw. The collective will take whatever gets drawn—the production of an at-this-moment-unknown-mass-ofpeople—and create work out of it. MASS first relinquishes control to their audience, letting them create their basic materials. Then they re-establish that control by creating larger assemblages later on. Then they let go again: once MASS displays the works, the public might interpret the assemblages as they will. Public participation becomes art-making, then becomes public participation again. At the moment of this writing there’s no way to know the appearance of the final objects; all we know is the loose structure of operations. Like Brecht, Ono and others, these younger artists desire a close interaction with an audience. Suffice to quote Allan Kaprow (1958):

… we must be acrobats, constantly shuttling between an identification with the hand and body that flung the paint and stood “in” the canvas and submission to the objective markings, allowing them to entangle and assault us. This instability is indeed far from the idea of a “complete” painting. The artist, the spectator, and the outer world are much too interchangeably involved here. (And if we object to the difficulty of complete comprehension, we are asking too little of the art.)

Above: From James A. Ernst, Drawing the Line: Fine and Commercial Art (New York: Reinhold Publishing Company, 1962).


While Brecht and Ono offered written instructions as guides to audience action and participation, other artists of the 1960s and 1970s extended their drawing and painting practices into the physical space of the audience. Artists such as Carolee Schneeman and Richard Tuttle blended drawing techniques with performance-based art forms such as music and dance. Their audiences experienced the work through the process of its making; for the artists, the moves between drawing and performance allowed a more intimate connection with their viewers, who saw the artists’ private and intense studio practice writ large and in the flesh. Art historian Katie Anania’s essay on the period, available at pastelegram.org in November 2012 in connection with the East Austin Studio Tour, covers this period in greater depth.

It is dedicated to contemporary artists, art historians and critics as well as the ideas, images and texts that inform their projects, some historical and others less so. As such, Pastelegram provides an international platform for the examination of artistic and historical practice.

Pastelegram lives in two distinct forms: a biannual print issue and an online site. The print issue features an editorial collaboration with an artist or art historian that includes original works made for the magazine, visual essays, an interview with the issue’s collaborator and a collection of outside texts and images selected by the collaborator and Pastelegram’s editors.

To prepare, I study and draw inanimate objects such as shoes, shells, hats, boats, and then transform them into my own vocabulary of abstract shapes. My latest work includes assemblage using found objects and maps glued to surfaces such as cabinet doors.

But most importantly, will design prevail in a post apocalyptic scenario?

TreatSuit and Comfort Sessions: TravelPod 1 My plan is to rove through the larger events - the opening and closing parties, group stops, and be available upon request.

H61

I will present two interactive pieces that aim to bring comfort to tourgoers in markedly different ways: The first, TreatSuit, is a handmade jumpsuit covered with a plethora of zippers. Behind each one is a long sleeve; at its bottom will be found a cheap gewgaw of the sort given to children. The second, Comfort Sessions: TravelPod 1, is a mobile, artist-worn tented space within which I will conduct individual lullaby comfort sessions.
