Artist For Artist: Year of the Rabbit

As we hop into the New Year, ambitious and wide-eyed, there are a few carrots for you to look forward to on Artist For Artist’s plate. First being a new look for the site, which will allow our readers to be able to peruse the articles without the infinite blog roll. Secondly, we are in the process of making AFA into a physical publication…so keep drooling, more on that soon.

Here is our current line-up:

“Desire,” by Frank James Fisher Raku Fired Porcel

Blood Brothers interview with artists, and brothers, Rob Fisher and Frank James Fisher will enlighten us on their upbringing in Detroit, leading them both into the world of art, each becoming champions of their own medium.

"Porcupine Nest Building Exercise," 2008 by Elaine Hullihen Still from video performance

Organic Sentiments with Elaine Hullihen and Olga Ziemeska offers a new format for the Artist For Artist Interview series in which there will be an exchange between the two artists of various ephemera and media, rather than an exchange in questions. AFA is very excited for the new possibilities this exchange will bring to the way visual artists build organic dialogues with their contemporaries.

"Ariel 2," 2010 by Tom Bogaert Sculptural patchwork made with washing powder boxes, on a bed of washing powder

AFA will be briefed by artist, Tom Bogaert as he continues on his Impression, proche orient series that has lead him to create his latest bodies of work both in Palestine and Lebanon.

"Soviet Architecture" part of series by Sarah Kunkler

In The Scope of a Periphery, American artist, based in Prague, Sarah Kunkler and Armenian artist Edgar Amroyan offer up a dialogue that is more than enlightening on the current state of the artistic community as a ‘periphery,’ in Armenia.

"Smoke Film," still from a video by William Steinman

Call from the West, will be a briefing series as artist William Steinman embarks on his new home in Venice Beach after leaving New York City. The briefs will be kicked off by a few questions I had been dying to ask Steinman about his last body of work, Acid Black Eagle Red. The still above is from Steinman’s latest film, Smoke Film, 2010.

"Rumpus Room" by Maud Cotter installation shot in Point B, Williamsburg, Brooklyn

AFA recently got the opportunity to visit Irish artist, Maud Cotter, while in the states for her recent launch of her artist book, All Stuff is Farse and ask her some questions on her practice of bringing banal everyday objects into suspended states of the surreal.
