    Altered States
     Valerie Hegarty

    Marlborough Chelsea, 545 W25nd St., NYC

    Hegarty’s depiction of destruction is a departure point to examine larger issues of erasure, repression, the uncanny, metamorphosis, death and rebirth. Hegarty painstakingly crafts her works from foam core, papier mâché and ink-jet prints on canvas that she then paints, carves, twists, drapes, amputates, and grafts to create mutated originals where the fictional disasters behave as a catalyst for the works coming back to life. - thru May 5

    Forest Blending Acrylic Glass Statues

    Imagine walking through a forest and seeing just a glimpse of these invisible figures! They’re the creative work of artist Rob Mulholland, who makes these sculptures out of mirrored Perspex (or acrylic glass). It has been called the Predator effect after the 1987 film where an alien life form seamlessly blends into its background. Mulholland has previously installed these chameleon-like figures in the woods around Alloa, Loch Ard and the David Marshall Lodge in Scotland.

    Mulholland told BBC Scotland that the key to the effect was creating a distorted reflection. “It alters reality, one moment you see them and the next moment they blend in. There’s an ambiguity to it - it doesn’t answer all the questions.”

  14. colorful-history:

    Edmonia Lewis (1845-1909) was an African American and Native American sculptor that would find success despite discrimination for her race and gender. She was an art student at Oberlin College and would excel in her courses but would later drop out after being accused of theft and poisoning two classmates; this led to a mob beating her up severely, only to have her acquitted of any wrong doing at trial. She would later move to Boston to further her education in sculpting. Her big break would come in 1864 with a bust she made of Colonel Robert Gould Shaw being widely celebrated and selling many copies; this would supply her with enough money to move to Rome. She would spend most of her adult career in Italy and became a highly paid and internationally respected sculptor. Two of her most notable works are: Forever Free and The Death of Cleopatra.
