Wall Therapy

September 2, 2015 § Leave a comment

WALL/THERAPY is a public art project in its fifth year in Rochester, New York. Rochester is one of those classic rust belt American cities with declining populations mainly due to the closing of factories as jobs left for cheaper labor overseas.

The mural project has installed over a hundred murals throughout the city.

Photographer Matt Black has that essential gene that helps an artist seek out and find compelling images. His sense of pathos and composition are impeccable. Most of his work is all shot in black and white.

Mirrored Ziggurat

Mirrored Ziggurat is the latest sculpture by Iranian artist Shirin Abedinirad.

From her artist’s statement:

In this installation I have been inspired by the pyramidal structure of Ziggurat, a common form of temple in ancient Mesopotamia, attempting to connect earth and sky, so humans could be nearer to god. The Mirrored Ziggurat acts as a staircase, which seeks to connect nature with human beings and to create union of ancient history and today’s world. This installation offers a transformative view of the self. The Mirrored Ziggurat has seven levels that represent seven heavens. For me, mirrors amplify this paradise, giving light; an important mystical concept in Persian Culture, and a medium creating an optical illusion.

The Looms

For her series The Looms in Our Bones Singapore-based artist Izziyana Suhaimi introduces embroidered drawings.

From her artist statement:

Embroidery for me is a quiet and still act, where each stitch represents a moment passed. The building of stitches then becomes a representation of time passing and the final work is like a physical manifestation of time – a time object. Each stitch is also a recording of the maker’s thoughts and emotions. I enjoy the duality of embroidery, in its movements of stabbing, cutting, covering, building, repairing, taking apart. Every stitch made seems to unfold a story and withhold it at the same time.
