From the DS Archives: Kathy Grayson

This Sunday’s From the DS Archives unearths a feature on artist Kathy Grayson that presents a compelling example of contemporary painting.  While Grayson’s work is realized in paint, her process capitalizes on the technologies of globalization.  She appropriates You Tube footage and then uses computer programs to capture and abstract the transference of data, which facilitates digital broadcasting.  Grayson’s Bangalore series visualizes an otherwise invisible[…..]

From the DS Archives: Pablo Zuleta Zahr, Event Horizon

This week’s edition of From the DS Archives reintroduces a feature on artist Pablo Zuleta Zahr written by Allison Gibson.  Zahr’s ‘patterned panoramas’ offer an innovative study of contemporary mobility – finding beauty in the shared urgency of the urban commute.  Zahr’s observance of the everyday suggests that we should pause to appreciate the moment as we navigate our busy lives.

Come Hither[…..]

Rachel Khedoori

DailyServing’s Sasha Lee recently had the chance to sit down with Denise Gray of[…..]

Summer of Utopia from the DS Archives: Meeson Pae Yang

From the DS Archives introduces this week’s series, Summer of Utopia, in which we investigate seven different artists who either employ or interrupt ideas of utopia. Today we are exploring utopia by returning to a past feature on artist Meeson Pae Yang.  Utopia – a broad conceptual imagining of a progressive and perfected society – has engaged many thinkers over the centuries since Sir Thomas[…..]
