MOST RECENT

New IG page @ceramicinternational : got picked up by @shimgrams through @arthelixgallery to have a space at @aquaartmiami during Art Basel in December 2018. My proposal won out so I want to show the contemporary art world of Basel and Aqua how ceramic artists can come together and show them what we are made of. Follow the page will be e blasting call to entry and more details. If you want to be apart of the organization, would like a feature, and or would like to exhibit with me in Miami please DM me. #artaqua2018 #ceramicinternational #shimgrams #arthelix #ceramics #keramik #ceramicsculpture

Art for Anya -- final chance to bid!
Hey all! I donated This painting to #artforanya, an art auction benefiting a little girl fighting her second bout of leukemia.
Today, Thursday the 2nd, is the final chance to bid (the auction closes at 5pm)! If you are able, take a look at the works on @paddle8 and spread the love. #artforanya #shimgrams

One of the most enjoyable, if not the most enjoyable- and rare - part of being an artist/gallerist is the chance to engage an active art mind. I had the pleasure to spend a few hours with @douglasdegges yesterday doing this in the final day of his residency at the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation in Bethany, Connecticut. A great many new works to discuss and so many thoughtful ideas for one visit! A suite of nearly 20 paintings that should become a monograph and my favorite...a confounding (and astounding?) painting of an elephant based on a tiny, unused forty year old children’s rubber erasure found by the artist in a dusty gift shop in Bemidji, Minnesota. Safe travels and maybe see you in Miami?! #douglasdegges #painter #josefalbers #artistresidency #bataille #painter #portrait #elephants #shimgrams #aquaartmiami #arthelix

‘”By Soul, By Blood” - A Chant’, a video installation by @maysalbeik, will be on view at @east.of.west opening July 7th.
***************
“Mays explores themes of sound, voice, and translation and ties them directly to a time, a place, and series of particular events.  The piece is a looping video split into four frames, with the artist in the center, overlaid with footage of a Syrian pro-Assad rally. Her dark clothes bring the colors on her face forward, and her expression of discomfort and disgust, layered with the chaos of a rally, of flags and crowds and movement becomes the primary point of focus in each frame.
The title of the piece ‘By Soul, By Blood is the first half of a popular chant in many rallies and protests, that Mays and many Syrians of her generation have internalized in connection to Bashar Al-Assad, as it was on much of his propaganda material. The full chant reads, “by soul, by blood, we’d protect you”.”

Repost from @beforewewerebanned - ‘Homing Devices’, a short film by Carmen Daneshmandi, will be on view at @east.of.west opening July 7th.
***************
“As a first generation Spanish-Iranian growing up in a Catholic-Muslim household in white suburbia with all our family in Iran and Spain, I lacked a real sense of community within and outside of myself to validate my existence. Never enough and always at arms length reaching for family history to heal us and yet always made intimate with ignorance, Islamophobia, and “what are you?”s. These physical, emotional boundaries have only deepened since last year’s Muslim Ban. This work came together as a meditation on that limbo during this heavy time. Built with images of people, places, and things that are stranger but feel like kin, the visions of Homing Devices are only further marked by the sounds of sonar and Hossein Omoumi, a Persian Traditionalist whose music has always felt like an ancestral cling. Together, the audio visual combination of the film takes a stream of consciousness approach and honors that pursuit of home and belonging.”

‘Sound[less]bites’, a mirror sculpture by Mays Albeik, as part of her video piece ‘“By Soul, By Blood” - A Chant’, will be on view at @east.of.west opening July 7th. DM for price list.
***************
“As part of the “By Soul, By Blood” - A Chant video piece, Sound[less]bites merges the material with the immaterial. Sound becomes light in its quiet projection, and words become objects in their silencing extraction. The words, nullified and muted here by the act of casting them before they leave the artist’s mouth, are: “By soul, by blood,” an Arabic chant popular in the Levant, and commonly heard in Nationalistic rallies. They are silenced, and yet the cacophony of the rally is inescapable- in the video footage, and in the resulting frozen sound casts, just as the consequences of these rallies are an inescapable reality to many, even if they’re shrouded in silence.”

RepostBy @beforewewerebanned: "Pleased to announce the artists exhibiting in Before We Were Banned at @east.of.west gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico • 07/07 - 08/05
****
@BeforeWeWereBanned is a group art show in response to the Muslim Ban 1.0. We invited emerging and established artists living in the US who identify with one or more of the 7 countries on the Muslim Ban 1.0 list – Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen – to participate in a group show examining the complex identities assumed as immigrants in the US long before/after the ban was announced in an effort to reveal honest representations of those affected and also to heal the community. Our first show in Brooklyn marked the anniversary of the ban, opening on January 26th, 2018. The same artists (with the exception of one) exhibit the same work / new work / a variation of their previous work in the new show in Santa Fe, @east.of.west . .

‘Our First Meeting’ by Gina Malek will be on view at @east.of.west opening July 7th. DM for price list.
***************
“Gina Malek’s works are records of memories sought after. With her paintings, Malek creates portraits and scenes that are intimate while mostly avoiding direct figuration, preferring instead to outline its absence. Outlines of the human form are visible through a multitude of mark-making languages. She collects the marks by interacting with images in printmaking, drawing, and writing as well as video and audio recordings. In the studio, Malek attempts to extend encounters with her subjects - to chase down a moment, freeze it, and then set it on repeat. Using color and gesture, the artist underlines significant moments and then folds them back into the painting. At the same time as they suggest certain actions that are physical, the works also reflect the ways in which bodies are tangled in social and psychological spaces. Malek is interested in how people are represented, most notably women, the elderly, and those along the margins of society. The works converge upon ideas of identity and the impermanence of memory. The aim, in the end, is to smoke out remembered sensations through the act of painting.”

Repost from @beforewewerebanned - ‘'aSIYA' The Immigrant, Self Portrait’ series of 10 silkscreen prints by Asiya Alsharabi will be on view at @east.of.west opening July 7th. DM for price list.
***************
“The images presented reflect what women would have looked like during the first waves of Middle Eastern migration into the United States in the late 1800’s. While many migrants today may not come fully dressed in traditional attire, it is easy to feel as though we are, even after years of living in the US.
Cultural taboos could result in severe punishment for a woman for sharing her image and identity publicly. As a Yemeni American artist, through accumulated frustrations from hiding identities, and a renewed sense of freedom, I choose myself as a subject for the series. Wearing the clothes that once belonged to my mother and my grandmother that I brought with me when I fled the war in Yemen I show my identity. Despite the fears and insecurities that accompanied a lot of this process I am happy to have followed through with it, it is the result of the best of my two identities, the Yemeni and the American.”

‘American Cheese and Other Slippery Surfaces’ by Rhonda Khalifeh will be on view at @east.of.west opening July 7th. DM for price list.
********************
"Surface’s ability to designate, distort, and confuse notions of space can be partially attributed to the consolidation of material information that occurs as a body or object transitions into atmosphere. Typically, materiality is experienced within a localized system of physical and metaphysical assumptions and beliefs. This knowledge is not immediately accessible to the newcomer or from an outside perspective. Material languages and modes of sensory processing develop as people adjust to new physical realities. In looking at materiality in relation to surface I am questioning the reciprocity of these languages – do they truly communicate with each other?"
