 ARIAS WITH A TWIST @ABRONS ART CENTER.
September 14-October 16
Wednesday-Saturday | 8 pm
Saturday Late Show | 10:30 pm
Sunday | 7 pm

This updated version of the original deliriously madcap fantasy once again features the soaring song stylings of demented diva Joey Arias surrounded by an eye-popping theatrical extravaganza conjured by a team of puppeteers under the direction of Basil Twist. Channeling lurid celluloid dreams, macabre nightmares and bizarre premonitions, the adventure begins with an alien abduction and concludes with a stupendous Busby Berkeley-esque finale. Along the way, the throaty chanteuse belts out pop, rock and jazz standards in addition to some original tunes by Alex Gifford as Twist and company work their magic with vintage marionettes, anatomically correct puppets and fantastical scenic elements.

BLOOMSDAY CONTEST: Christine Greenslade

Christine Greenslade
Contemporary/surrealist artist

Born in Penzance, Cornwall ,England,1947.
Retired contract interior designer
National Awards and International recognition for design (interior and advertising) Lived and worked in England, Bermuda, Germany, and Spain
At present living in Pays de Loire, France. Works in oils or acrylics on board or canvas. Use of collage and newpaper as principal part of design.
Living in the heart of the Andulucian mountains, poor and frustrated, I turned to painting as a way of release.  I soon discovered it was my missing link the part that is always in front of you but you never see!  Spain gave me the colours I love and the passion I feel.  Inspired by a Picasso  documentary and the simple way he used shape, form and colour allowed me to do my latest collection. I love the characters of the normal man or woman in the street and I’ve endeavored to capture this in its simplist form. Showing love, anger, disputes between races, old love, and a soupson of humour .  I hope you enjoy and that they will impress upon your memory.  Please contact me at http://www.artslantParis or Amsterdam under christine greenslade or e-mail at:cristolgs@gmail.com to purchase originals or limited copies.  telephone:00 33 241610986

Help support DAMP PATCHES with April Gertler.

HELP SUPPORT CONTRIBUTOR APRIL GERTLER’S BOOK PROJECT: DAMP PATCHES.
I’ve had the very great pleasure of seeing some of these pieces in person and each one of them is so uniquely lovely. April will talk about this and other projects in the forthcoming video interview for the 22 but in the meantime help her make it happen!

Donations range from $25 to $750 (which includes a personal hand-made collage from April.)

ABOUT THIS PROJECT

In October 2010 I was invited to Paris for an artist residency at l’entreprise culturelle. Out of that residency came DAMP PATCHES – which is a new collection of work I developed into an artist book that mixes my collage work with photography and drawing. The title of the book comes from the loose translation of a deodorant ad from the French fashion magazine Votre Beaute (1973): Prisonnière des taches d’humidité sous les bras. – A prisoner of damp patches.

I like working with collage because I enjoy using original source materials such as found photographs, fashion magazine ads, and bits and pieces that I find on the street or in the trash, and the hands-on experience of working with paper, glue, scissors and thread. It feels increasingly relevant to use a hands-on approach as many other parts of my life are being swallowed by the digital world.

I use collage as my primary medium because I feel it is the best way for me to combine images and explore various concepts that interest me the most, such as; the complex dynamics of intimate relationships, female empowerment, and the anonymity of urban life. I am dedicated to my original source materials which tend to restrict the final size of my work, but in that way they become more precious and intimate for the viewer, DAMP PATCHES has challenged my continuing understanding of what collage can become.

The idea of creating a book surrounding the project came together when I was speaking to my colleague and friend, Eduardo Serafim about DAMP PATCHES. Eduardo co-founded AML-Press in February 2011, and suggested that AML print the book with their newly acquired Risograph printer; a machine part Xerox copier, part offset press which has the quality of a silkscreen.

The Risograph machine was not initially intended for artist books or printed projects but rather for high volume commercial use. I loved the idea of using the Riso because the quality and texture of the images produced by the machine highly compliment the source material I use in my work which typically comes from the 1960’s – 1980’s.

The final book will marry the low-tech feel of the collage work with the high tech printing method of the Riso. As a result the collages and photographs will be the same size and the same texture as the original works. I am really enthusiastic about this part of the project because it helps me push my practice further by exploring my interest in all 3 mediums and takes them to a new level.

The funding I’m requesting would support the production of the book by supplementing the printing costs, paper, assembly, and shipping/distribution of the finished book.

The book would be:

  • 36 pages
  • Book size (closed) 8.5″ x 11.5″
  • Printed on the Risograph
  • Staple binding
  • Edition of 300

I hope you are interested in sharing in my enthusiasm. Thank you for your time, attention and support.

My best,

April Gertler

From the Artist~

I like to work with recycled materials. I enjoy creating textures, old wasted look, irregularities, but also think of durability and resistance when making my notebooks. Each notebook is unique and carefully crafted with an eye on detail. I hope you will enjoy using my notebooks as much as I enjoy making them.

I started making notebooks almost by accident: I couldn’t find a notebook that I liked so decided to make one. And soon friends and friends of friends started noticing my work and encouraged me to continue making more – and now, here I am on Etsy!

I am an Argentinian-Italian artist currently living in Sweden. I have also a lot of experience working with stained glass and other kinds of handicraft. You can see my previous work at:
