Detroit-based artist Matthew Angelo Harrison investigates analog and digital technologies to explore origins of all kinds. He makes low-resolution 3D printers and uses them to reproduce authentic African artifacts. Harrison plays havoc with the usual hierarchy of objects by literally elevating the new clay 3D printed works above the wood originals. Appearing at once earthy and other-worldly, the new clay sculptures are symbolic of many African-Americans’ relationship to their own African origins.
His artwork is often created by machines that he designs and builds from scratch. Matthew is interested in aspects of manufacturing, specifically its hidden performative aspect. He received a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He has shown his work at MOCAD and the Jewish Museum (NYC), and has a forthcoming solo exhibition at Atlanta Contemporary.
Netherlands based Nicola Kloosterman creates collages using scraps of collected paper and fragments of images that speak to her. She is especially interested in shape and color, the female body, hands, botanicals, and vintage printed material. Kloosterman likes to use a lot of negative space and her images are always quite airy and light.
She likes to think of herself as an explorer and a wanderer. Nicola thinks the process of finding images in the torrent of our daily visual communications, carefully excavating them and them recycling them into a new context and narrative is exciting as she never knows where she may end up. Each collage begins with a single image or piece of paper. She then slices, combines, reduces and composes until a new visual narrative emerges on her paper reflecting the incomprehensible, the invisible, the immeasurable and the infinite.
Neat-o. Lundgren’s printed magazine tees brings news on the street to a whole new level. The graphics are wearable cool, but what makes these shirts stand out from other printed tees, are the magazine articles printed on the back. With issues from Hunter S. Thomson’s 3:30am phone call to Bill Murray about a new sport called “shotgun golf,” to illegal immigration and racial profiling, these shirts are certainly street stopping conversation starters. Plus every five weeks you’ll not only have something new to talk about, but you’ll have something new to wear too.
