Summer Group Show presents a diverse collection of work from a compelling group of multinational artists. This show gives guests an opportunity to see a range of work in different mediums inspired by wide-ranging sources, from quiltmaking and collage to street art.
Stockholm, Sweden native Sebastian Wahl began collecting handmade paper images 20 years ago. Since then, these found images have been constants in his work. Inspired by the diversity New York City, he creates collages that mimic the harmonious heterogeneity that defines the city. With the use of an x-acto knife Wahl detaches religious and pop culture imagery from their original context and reapplies them, creating new enthralling narratives. Wahl’s vibrant pieces lean towards the psychedelic and confront the viewer with impressions of conscientiously ordered chaos that invite endless reimagination.
Pam Glew employs a self developed technique to create striking portraits that seem to emerge from the cloth they are created from. Glew dyes vintage flags, quilts and other textiles black then slowly reverses this action by painting bleach onto the cloth. The process of bleaching reveals the textile’s original pattern, thus forming her portraits. Her process is immensely time consuming with most of her pieces going through around 10 cycles of bleaching, washing, drying, pressing and eventually re-sewing. Glew’s antique cloths are given new life as external symbols of identity are blended with the individual.
Ben Venom, fresh off his residency at the de Young Museum, San Francisco, plays with madness as he creates quilts that fuse traditional crafting techniques with unorthodox imagery. Vintage tattoos, motorcycle gangs and the occult are some of the sources that have inspired Venom’s work. His quilts intentionally resemble the style of B-horror juxtaposed with the conventional, comforting method of quilting.
