Rosemarie Trockel - Skarstedt Gallery Skarstedt Fine Art is pleased to present an exhibition of knitted works by Rosemarie Trockel. Trockel began making knitted works in 1985 when knitting was relegated to an inferior status in art. She sought to answer two questions: first, what was so embarrassing to women about wool and knitting, was it the way that the material was handled or the material itself; furthermore, could a handicraft ever qualify as art outside of its reference to "women's art"? By using wool Trockel is able to answer these questions while simultaneously posing her own questions about the status of art making through her content. The wool works are industrially produced with computer assistance to the specifications of the artist. The works typically contain a repetitive pattern of logos such as the playboy bunny, the hammer and sickle, the swastika, the plus-minus signs, and the wool mark.

Sacred Space: New Technological Mandalas by Leonardo Ulian London-based artist Leonardo Ulian (previously) has completed a new body of work titled Sacred Space. Inspired by Hindu and Buddhist symbolism, Ulian continues his exploration of technology and spiritualism with these carefully sculpted mandalas created with soldered computer and radio components. Via Beers.Lambert: Ulian’s reflexive use of the geometrical mandala can also be seen as a nod to his ‘past-life’ as an technican, but through his application, Ulian divorces the electronic components from their origins, giving new life to these (now defunct) technological bits, creating a new type of hybridization that is equal parts spiritualization and contemporary critique: “We live in a society that worships electronic technology,” he states “both for necessity but also because it makes us feel better, not unlike its own new form of fashionable spirituality.” Of particular note in this solo show is an amazing little three-dimensial bonsai tree titled Centrica Bonsai.

By using the technique of embroidery, which is traditionally employed to represent femininity and applying it to the expression of its opposite, I hope to challenge the pre-conceived notion that 'women's work' is light and easy. Aiming to represent the effects of hard work arising from employment in low paid 'ancillary' jobs, such as cleaning, caring and catering, all traditionally considered to be 'women's work'. The technique, I recall first applying to my hand under a table during a home economics class in school. I was totally amazed to find that I could pass a needle under the top layers of skin without any pain, only a mild discomfort.

A peaceful world with origami I am not sure how I stumbled on the topic of origami but I am loving how artists use this Japanese art form in modern installations today to deliver a message. Origami as we know originated in Japan sometime during the 6th century by the Japanese monks and was initially an art for ceremonies and the rich being paper was so expensive. It was first used to decorate and deliver food where pieces of fish where wrapped into the paper known as noshi.

Lace Works by April Dauscha Artist April Dauscha uses the human body to investigate the ideas of morality, mourning and mortification. She creates intriguing artworks by wrapping her tongue, her mouth or her eyes in delicate lace works, exploring topics such as transformation, reconciliation and communication through dress. She states: "My making focuses on feminine objects and materials. Lace, veils, undergarments and hair adornment speak not only of womanhood, but also of the duality of human nature. Lace speaks of purity and sexuality, it reveals and conceals, it is humble, yet gluttonous in its ornamental overindulgence; lace is the ultimate dichotomy.

Presenting Patterns Low stock Product description Great Scot! Sound art and spatial practices : situating sound installation art since 1958 This dissertation examines the emergence and development of sound installation art, an under-recognized tradition that has developed between music, architecture, and media art practices since the late 1950s. Unlike many musical works, which are concerned with organizing sounds in time, sound installations organize sounds in space; they thus necessitate new theoretical and analytical models that take into consideration the spatial situated-ness of sound. Existing discourses on "spatial sound" privilege technical descriptions of sound localization. By contrast, this dissertation examines the ways in which concepts of space are socially, culturally, and politically construed, and how spatially-organized sound works reflect and resist these different constructions.

Anthony Howe's Kinetic Wind Sculptures Pulse And Hypnotize The Creators Project linked up with Anthony Howe, an Eastsound, WA-based painter and sculpture artist to highlight his work in the medium of surreal kinetic wind sculpture that are initially designed in 3D software.
