2013 Erin M Riley Undressing 2

Interview: Erin M Riley

Erin M Riley is a Philadelphia-based artist whose chosen medium is weaving, something that has not been covered much here on AM. What drew us to her tapestries in particular is her use of unconventional imagery, which bridges the gap between traditional techniques and contemporary issues that affect youth today. At times deeply personal and honest, her work explores post party mishaps, social and sexual interactions of dating, death, pop culture and more. We had the chance to interview her ahead of a showing at Paradigm […]

Interview: DALeast

DALeast is a Chinese born artist that lives and works in Capetown, South Africa. After successful 2012 in which the artist painted his distinctive murals all over the world, had a sold out show at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC, and instantly sold out two print releases, we thought it was time to catch up with him here on AM. So, we virtually visited him in his studio shortly after his successful show and murals project in London, and just before he headed for another productive […]

He has been shooting his Entoptic Phenomena series of work since 2006 and wowing viewers with the floating fabric objects presented within his urban landscapes. Hundley’s work is composed completely within the camera – he uses zero post production or photoshop trickery within his images. We’ve followed his work for a number of years and always wondered how he captures his unique images, so we asked him a few questions about his process. He has […]

Interviews: Jim Kazanjian – “Temporary Equilibrium” @ Breeze Block Gallery

When you first realize that the subject matter within Jim Kazanjian’s work doesn’t actually exist, you may at first be relieved that such precarious looking locations aren’t out there. Your next thought may well be “just how the hell does he do that”? Kazanjian works in photography, but is not a photographer. His tools include the internet for sourcing his library of over 25,000 high resolution images and Photoshop to assemble his impossible architecture compositions. He describes his creative process as hyper-collage. He has a two-person […]

The couple, now in their 80s, grabbed a brush and climbed the scaffolding to help with the pasting. Later, AM joined the French […]
