Next we wanted to create some prints using things around us. The prints utilize natural embossings of leaves, twigs and other images. I will be posting more photos from the prints soon. Subscribe to this post or leave a comment to be notified of updates.
space:eight is proud to announce the exhibit ‘Paper Chase’ by Atlanta artists TindelMichi. Paper Chase is a new body of work that explores spontaneous collage and the ideas of recycle, reuse and repurpose. The show was created expressly for space:eight and both artists will be in attendance at the opening party.
TindelMichi is John Tindel and Michi Meko a collaborative duo working together to create a unique aesthetic influenced by the Southern region of the United States.Their work is a direct reflection of growing up in a newer, urbanized, and more racially sensitive South than of the past. Still haunted by history’s ghost, their interest is in narratives, symbols and objects. Graphic painting styles and site specific installations commingle with heritage, rituals, daily visual stimuli and design to collage the imagination into dreamlike landscapes. They have combined their vernaculars to develop cryptic phrases and developed a catalog of symbolic elements that continue to appear in the works. Under the guise of humor and wit, they closely examine and question stories and objects that harness the powers of racial division in America.
