I don’t know if this is me running out of ideas to paint, but I’ve always been interested in painting a person at an anonymous level with zero interaction. It’s a very odd and personal connection with a person exchanged through the internet. This is a fragmented idea that I kind of just want to run with and see where it goes. So what I ask from you tumblr strangers out there is to send a photo of yourself to my email: snkardos@gmail.com
If this sounds interesting or you want to pick at my brain more in depth about this concept then holler at me.

FEATURED ARTIST: Nancy Lupo
Nancy Lupo (American, b. 1983) highlights the emotional associations elicited by objects and materials. Her sculptures often have intentionally ambiguous forms that draw directly from quotidian life and yet pervert such notions of the everyday. From some vantage points, Lupo’s floor-based works behave as small-scaled furniture— while from other views, they appear as organic abstractions. Other pieces disrupt known forms like Rubbermaid Brute containers or heart-shaped ice cube trays. Lupo juxtaposes content and form to produce disquieting works, especially by incorporating non-traditional materials like quinoa, chia seeds, nutritional yeast, and kitty litter into her sculpture. 

Lupo’s work is currently on view in “Mineral Spirit” at Laurel Gitlen, New York, though August 8 and was recently seen in “Taster’s Choice” at MoMA PS1, New York “The Stuff That Dreams are Made OF” at C L E A R I N G, New York and “Light Night” at Wallspace, New York. In September she will be presenting “Old Zoo Food” with LA><ART and Michael Thibault Gallery in Los Angeles.

I’m a sore loser. If I walk into Gallery5 for fall line fest and see paintings of jazz musicians I’m going to have to feel a little disappointed for rva art. (Their theme this year is rhythm.)
