though the show opening tomorrow, is of ‘stick’ sculpture, or mostly ?
I’m still hung up – on his wicker work, and the distressed foam . . fawn – looks very cool, too.

DETROIT HOMESTEADING / NEW YORK ARTISTS – ON THE MOVE

JEFFREY TRANCHELL has a great, great piece . . .
in the SAFE GALLERY POP-UP: ‘THE BURN SHOW’ / SAT JULY 20, 2019

(see post below for details)

it seems as if a whole bunch of the art is going to go up in flames – in the bonfire ??!!!


JEFFREY TRANCHELL . . ‘Burn Hat’ / YES !!!! YES !!!! & MORE YES !!!!
this baby – was made to burn !!!
hand-made specifically for the show, it’s a DIY wicker-style ‘hat’.

ps: the ‘D’ is for Dylan, as in fellow Detroit-based artist DYLAN SPAYSKY – who has been teaching Jeffrey how to weave wicker baskets recently / got to love it !!


although at first glance, or from a digital photo, anyway !!
the hat appears to be made from DIY multi-colored craft wicker (!!), it’s actually made from differently colored ‘bomb fuse’ wire . . . all the better – to BURN, BABY BURN !!!


this is one of Jeffrey’s more conservative, early attempts !!
in fact his first attempt. pretty darn good.
who doesn’t love a primitive – primitive ?

Jeffrey writes that Dylan Spaysky makes a lot of wicker-based work, and that “he taught me down by the boat slip that is our local swimming hole.”
in Detroit ? they have swimming holes ?
oh, Brooklyn, you are so over – and, you don’t even know it.

YULIA TPOCHIY’S exhibit, ‘Embodiers’ . . .

will present (currently) Detroit-based, metal-smith, performance, and object artist,
LAUREN KALMAN’S diverse, often craft-based & pretty much . . ‘out-spoken’ work platforms . .
. . including jewelry objects that reference erotic zones in the body titled, ‘Icons of the Flesh’.

” . . consisting of video, costumes, mask forms, installations and interactive jewelry . . .
Kalman uses craft mediums and decorative objects as a strategic choice. Minimalism, intellectual purity, health industry, and white male privilege are linked historically, and that link was codified aesthetically throughout the modernist period. Body adornment as decoration can be a necessary interruption to the myopic intellectual order of the established lineages of art and design and established cultural norms more broadly.
The legacy of modernism, minimalism, and the high arts (sculpture & painting), have historically privileged the cerebral over the corporeal. Crafts , in contrast have long been associated with domestic, bodily, and female.
As Kalman’s work deals largely with the female body, it calls upon historical associations with craft and the feminine.”
~Yulia Topchiy

LAUREN KALMAN . . is a visual artist whose practice “is invested in contemporary craft, video, photography, and performance.”
through her work, she investigates beauty, adornment, body image, and the built environment.
Raised in the Midwest, Kalman completed her MFA in art 7 technology from the Ohio State University & earned a BFA with a focus in Metals from Massachusetts College of Art. Exhibiting and lecturing internationally, she has been awarded several important residencies including Haystack, and also at the Santa Fe Art Institute.
(abridged from Topchiy)

KALMAN . . is currently an associate professor at Wayne State University, located in ‘vibrant’ downtown Detroit.
