Flowerhater - Peter Sarkisian

Peter Sarkisian Flowerhater
Flowerhater depicts a country farmer at war with a patch of wildflowers.  Pushing an old lawnmower, he cuts the flowers down only to see them sprout back up in a pattern of perpetual rebirth.  In the end, he loses the battle and collapses to the ground amidst a body-outline of colorful perennials.

This work is the latest example of Peter’s ongoing effort to re-contextualize the cinematic image in spatial terms.  Peter’s performance was filmed and projected using a unique angular perspective technique of his own conception, resulting in a new kind of viewing experience in which his figure appears to rise up from the cinematic landscape.

The first running of the Kentucky Derby was in 1875. The first winning jockey, Oliver Lewis, was African American. 13 of the 15 jockeys who raced that day were Black. Black jockeys won 15 of the first 28 runnings of the Kentucky Derby. However, by the 1904 racing season Jim Crow laws had all but barred Black jockeys (& trainers).

  • Tony Dagradi  (+)

    Biography : Tony Dagradi is an internationally recognized jazz performer, artist, composer, author, and educator. For over three decades he has made his home in New Orleans, performing on tenor and soprano saxophone with many of the Crescent City’s celebrated artists. He is most well-known for his work with Astral Project, an adventurous quartet of top New Orleans players dedicated to playing cutting-edge improvisational music. His performing past also includes five years as a member of the internationally acclaimed Carla Bley and appearances and recordings with Bobby McFerrin, Mose Allison, and Nat Adderley. Since 2015, Tony has been exploring the visual possibilities of altered books. Choosing vintage and antiquarian texts, he carefully cuts through one page at a time utilizing existing images to create a three-dimensional collage or sculpture. The results allow the contents and imagery of long outdated material to be viewed in a manner that is both exciting and thought-provoking.

    Detailed Description : My decades-long career in contemporary jazz directly informs my work as a visual artist. For me, music has always had a visual component, with the diverse elements of music suggesting colors, shapes and textures. The juxtaposition of abstract shapes, which come together as I work on a book, is very much how I perceive the interplay of melody, harmony, and rhythm. I also feel very strongly that the mathematics and spirituality of music intersect all art forms. My process in creating sculptural effects with books is continually evolving. When I first began, I sealed the edges of each book and cut through one page at a time, making choices on the fly as to what images I chose to keep. As my technical skills progressed and I gained more confidence and experience, I found this to be a somewhat limiting approach. I wanted more flexibility. In my current preferred method, I harvest the images I am most interested in then add them back one at a time as the composition emerges. I still cut away one page at a time, and always work from front to back. In this way, I have greater control over the placement of each object as well as the direction of the entire composition. I enjoy working with many types of books; graphic novels, atlases, scientific texts, technical manuals, etc. Each represents a different and unique challenge. I especially relish working with vintage books and encyclopedias. The eclectic photos and illustrations often represent material that is long out of date yet offer a fascinating window into our past. At the same time, the quality and condition of the paper itself often extend their own unique challenge. Ultimately, I hope to provide a perspective on the transitory nature of what earlier generations understood to be factual and offer insight into the way ever-evolving media has shaped contemporary perspectives.

    Biography : Photography and acting are kindred spirits in the ongoing series by E2 - Kleinveld & Julien, entitled In Empathy We Trust. The project presents viewers with re-imagined iconic images from the history of art. The collaborators re-envision the work of old master painters beginning with the Flemish Primitives and spanning nearly 600 years. With subjects enacting roles with varied representations of race, age, and sexual orientation, E2’s revisionist Art History works by artists such as van Eyck, Botticelli, Raphael, Velázquez, Rembrandt, Vermeer, Fragonard, Manet and Whistler. Inspired by the original paintings, E2 hopes to “jar viewers” into questioning their own perceptions. They invite viewers to see these images, and indeed the world anew, using humor, wit and playfulness. In addition, they hope that the viewers will see how stereotypes can lead to prejudice and discrimination. The collaboration began in 2010, after completing work on the traveling exhibition and book project, Before (During) After: Louisiana Photographers Respond to Hurricane Katrina. This natural and man-made disaster brought social inequities in Louisiana into vivid focus. Conversations between Kleinveld and Julien revealed their mutual interest in issues of social justice. E2 has been exhibited internationally in institutions such as: Royal Academy of Art (London), Photoville (New York), Gemeentemuseum (The Hague), Palazzo Fortuny (Venice), Museum Castelvecchio (Verona), Galerie SIRIUS (Tokyo), New Orleans Museum of Art and Ogden Museum of Southern Art (New Orleans). The duo is represented by JONATHAN FERRARA GALLERY, New Orleans and their work appears in numerous public and private collections, including: Benetton Collection (Treviso, Italy), Museum of Fine Arts (Houston), Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (Trento, Italy), Hilliard University Art Museum (Lafayette, LA) and The Marks Collection (Houston).

  • Skylar Fein  (+)

    Biography : SKYLAR FEIN was born in Greenwich Village and raised in the Bronx. He has had many careers including teaching nonviolent resistance under the umbrella of the Quakers, working for a gay film festival in Seattle, stringing for The New York Times and as a pre-med student at University of New Orleans where he moved one week before Hurricane Katrina hit. In the wreckage of New Orleans, Fein found his new calling as an artist, experimenting with color and composition of the detritus of Katrina. His work soon became known for its pop sensibility as well as its hard-nosed politics. After a few starring roles in group shows, he had his first solo show in May 2008 at Jonathan Ferrara Gallery in New Orleans. In the fall of 2008, his Prospect.1: Biennial installation, "Remember the Upstairs Lounge," shined a spotlight on an overlooked piece of New Orleans history: a fire that swept through a French Quarter bar in 1973, killing everyone inside. The worst fire in New Orleans history has never been solved. His installation walked visitors right through the swinging bar doors, and offered visual riffs on politics and sexuality circa 1973. The piece was praised in Artforum, Art In America, The New York Times Magazine and The New Yorker, among others. In late 2009, Fein had his first solo museum show, "Youth Manifesto," at the New Orleans Museum of Art. The exhibition was an ode to punk rock as a force for social and cultural upheaval. True to form, the opening reception was shut down by police responding to the look of the unlikely art-going crowd. In March 2010, Jonathan Ferrara Gallery presented Fein's solo installation, “Skylar Fein: Rise of the Youth Front" at VOLTA Art Fair in New York during Armory Week. This installation drew thousands of people and delved into revolutionary politics past and present, a continuing theme in Fein's work. In May 2010,Fein was invited by the New York curatorial project No Longer Empty to recreate his "Remember the Upstairs Lounge" installat

    Detailed Description : "Everything calls out to us, clamoring to be totally transformed, but everyone pretends not to notice" --and here it is, the clamor. This is a show about words, and the pieces talk to each other, talk over each other, and joke with each other. Mostly they get along. The quote above--"Everything calls out to us"--is from Franklin Rosemont, the Chicago Surrealist, and he makes a few appearances, especially in the large grey flag. Roy Cohn, architect of the Red Scare and a lifelong enemy of gay rights, shows up twice. ("Admit nothing, deny everything, make counter accusations!" was Cohn's summation of his own legal strategy.) Maurice Blanchot, an obscure French philosopher who devoted his life to unpopular causes, can be found here and there. Blanchot's best work must be "The Refusal," a short essay about a citizen's duty to disobey its own government, and excerpts from that essay appear in the piece "The Red Sentences." A little bit about Blanchot: in Nazi-occupied France, he was stood up against a wall by the Gestapo and readied for execution. He made a daring escape, and from that moment on, Blanchot--a right-winger and occasional anti-Semite--became a champion of the marginal, the persecuted, the dispossessed. Politically he was on the right, then on the left, then on the right again, sometimes a communist, always an antifascist. In Blanchot, I see a model free thinker, unafraid, unconcerned with popularity, devoted to moral force alone. He seems to embody the spirit of the early-Twentieth Century working-class intellectual, an ideological combatant who could refine his ideas continuously, who wasn't afraid to be wrong, and above all, who wasn't a believer but a seeker. I see myself in him--or want to. Where is Blanchot today? Who are his heirs? The future belongs to those who can hold two contradictory ideas in their heads at the same time.

  • Kat Flyn  (+)

    Biography : KAT FLYN is a self-taught assemblage artist working presently out of San Diego. She began her career as a costume designer in Southern California. Over the years she amassed a trove of artifacts and collectables which she began using to create assemblage art in the 1990's. In 2000 she sold her business and moved to Cuyamaca, a remote community in the mountains outside of San Diego to devote herself exclusively to her artwork. In 2003 her work was interrupted when the Cedar Fire swept through San Diego county and destroyed the forest, her home & studio along with almost all of her collections and works of art. Following the fire she relocated to San Francisco, where she spent a decade concentrating on her art in her studio in SOMA and exhibiting at galleries in the Bay Area. In 2015 she returned to San Diego and now works out of her studio in La Jolla, exhibiting there and in Los Angeles. Kat Flyn refers to herself as an Assemblage Sculptor and her works as Political Art or Protest Art. She separates herself from other assemblage artists in that she only employs “saved” as opposed to “found” objects in her work; and her pieces always have a political or cultural narrative to them rather than being surreal or abstract. She also constructs or refashions many of the pieces which she uses in her art – a soft drink box into a tenement building (Affordable Housing 2017), a jewelry box into a wheel chair (Last Lily Foot 2016), an old shoe shine box into a hearse (Katrina 2018). The result is her work is closer in appearance to Folk Art than Assemblage Art.

    Detailed Description : Strictly speaking I am an assemblage artist, but in fact I construct more than assemble my works. I search out collectables, artifacts and wood carvings and then build scenes to make statements regarding American society. Even when using artifacts from earlier centuries, my theme is almost always about contemporary America. Social injustice, racism, sexism, and violence - aspects of our national psyche – exist in the present but have their seeds planted in our past. Additionally, the artifacts I use, often are meant to amplify the meaning of the work. For instance, the Black stereotype wood figures I use in many of my pieces were almost certainly crafted by a White person. By using such artifacts I ask: what kind of society produces such items in the first place? In my art I make a strict distinction between found objects and saved objects. A found object - which most assemblage artists use in their works - is devoid of intrinsic or emotional value, having been discarded by its owner as worthless or broken. A saved object on the other hand has retained value, either because it was intrinsically valuable or because emotional value had been added to it (such as a photograph, an old shoe, a vintage toy) and consequently it was saved rather than discarded. The fact that I only use “saved objects” often results in viewers being attracted to the individual pieces within my works rather than seeing the narrative I am attempting to portray. The pieces on display in this exhibit stretch from my early works such as my Ghost Portrait Series - where I attempt to capture a sense of what life might have been like for the person featured in each work – right up to my current work, which I loosely label “Ripped From The Headlines” - where I deal with contemporary issues such as prison reform, climate change, immigration, #MeToo, and #Black Lives Matter. I try to keep my visual presentation somewhat on the cartoonish side, which may seem odd given the seriousness of th

    Detailed Description : The artist says of his work... I create art because I feel I have been commissioned by the children and adults that grew up like me; not only from my city but across the world. I’m giving voices to those who have no voice; from the kids in the ghettos of Louisiana to the child soldiers in Africa. When I create, I paint in a stream of conscious flow. I prefer to paint with raw emotion, making sure to never get too attached to previous layers, instead, I let them guide me as I continue to add images, symbols, and words in the quest to convey the message burning inside my head. Some of my pieces have hidden words behind them that tell a deeper story. Some have other paintings under the final layers of paint that were just as powerful as the image in front. Each piece has a soul. Each piece is made for you to take a little bit of me or a bit of the world with you. Although my work often gets compared to John Michael Basquiat’s style, he is not my biggest influence. My biggest influence is Gordon Parks’ body of photographic works. Parks was commissioned by the world and he captured poignant, yet raw images of everyday people in their natural state. His work spoke to me and I decided to help share the stories he started and the stories of my life in my artwork.

  • Adam Mysock  (+)

    Biography : ADAM MYSOCK was born in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1983 - the son of an elementary school English teacher and a lab technician who specializes in the manufacturing of pigments. On account of a steady stream of folk tales from his mother, his father's vividly dyed work clothes, and a solid Midwestern work ethic, he developed an interest in painting and drawing all things Americana from a very early age. Mysock earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Painting and Art History by 2004 from Tulane University. He then received an MFA from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale. After his studies, he became the mural coordinator for the City of Cincinnati's MuralWorks mural program and worked as an adjunct drawing professor at Sinclair Community College in Dayton. In the summer of 2008, Mysock became a Professor of Practice at Tulane University where he currently teaches and maintains a studio. Mysock's work has been exhibited in Ohio, Kentucky, Illinois, Georgia, Mississippi and Louisiana and is in public and private collections across the US, including the 21c Museum, Beth Rudin DeWoody, Ruslan Yusupov, Thomas Coleman and Michael Wilkinson. He was a 2009 jury winner in the annual No Dead Artists juried exhibition. On August 4th, 2012 he was awarded first prize “Best in Show” in the Ogden Museum’s Louisiana Contemporary Annual Juried Exhibition. Mysock exhibited at Pulse Miami Art Fair in December 2012 with Jonathan Ferrara Gallery and he was selected for the 2013 Edition of New American Paintings. Mysock was exhibited in a solo project booth at the VOLTA9 Art Fair in Basel, Switzerland where he was acquired by the SØR Rusche Collection. In 2016, Mysock’s work was featured in a Baroque and Contemporary group exhibition from the SØR Rusche Collection, Oelde/Berlin at Kunsthalle Jesuitenkirche as well as in a solo exhibition entitled When Everything Was Wonderful Tomorrow at Galerie Andreas Binder in Munich, Germany.

    Detailed Description : I’m a revisionist history painter. Rather than rewrite the narrative of the past to justify an ideology, I repaint yesterday’s imagery in order to rationalize our present circumstances. Telling stories is a part of human nature; it’s how we relate to one another. The stories we have in common help us create sincere connections to our neighbors and our surroundings. What’s more, storytelling – for better or worse – typically involves hyperbole. We tend to exaggerate; we tend to lie. Generally, we believe we control our narrative embellishments. What gets exaggerated from one telling to another gets exaggerated to challenge our listeners. What gets repeated gets repeated because it resonates with them. What gets omitted gets left out because it’s lost its meaning. We actively use embellishment to keep our audiences engaged. Given enough distance, however, sources and accuracy fade out and substitutions become the new norms. Quietly, time redefines what is truth and what is fiction. As a painter, I’m preoccupied by the undeniable role that the image plays in creating this acceptance of the fictional. A painting has the authority to make the intangible concrete, and a series of them has the ability to authenticate a fabrication in our collective memory. When I begin a piece, I typically start with preexisting images, artifacts from this collective remembrance. I look for images that shape my pictorial consciousness, that are hard to question because when I first saw them they were presented as the truth. They have to capture my imagination and they have to feel largely descriptive of a greater story. From them, I’m given my task – I have to “disrepair” them. I have to consolidate an earlier world of historical and cultural visual-fact with an evolving understanding of subtlety and gradation. I find that the discrepancies I discover between the absolute and the nuanced inspire me most. The resultant work is largely about s

  • Anastasia Pelias  (+)

    Biography : ANASTASIA PELIAS was born in New Orleans, LA to Greek parents. Her artistic practice is rooted in the dual cultural identity of both her native and ancestral roots in New Orleans, LA and Skopelos, Greece. Blending the vibrant, compassionate nature of a New Orleanian with her weighty Greek heritage, Pelias creates work that is rich with personal depth of emotion and the spirit of exploration. Through a nuanced interpretation of paint, color, marks and ritual objects, Pelias unapologetically explores the overarching subjects of life, death, love, sex and the female experience. An abstractionist in the truest form, Pelias’ work reflects a seriousness and dedication to the traditional principles of painting – both the concept and the actuality. Pelias received her BFA from the Newcomb College of Tulane University in 1981 and her MFA from the University of New Orleans in 1996. She has exhibited her work in 16 solo and numerous group exhibitions at venues nationwide, including Jonathan Ferrara Gallery, Heriard-Cimino Gallery, the Pensacola Museum of Art, the Contemporary Arts Center New Orleans, American University (Washington D.C.), Proteus Gowanus (Brooklyn, NY) and the Louisiana State University Museum of Art, and has been featured in publications including Pelican Bomb, Hyperallergic, New American Paintings, New Orleans Art Review and Louisianaesthetic. Her works appear in public collections at the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, the Mobile Museum of Art, Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital (Commack, NY,) and in private collections throughout the United States and worldwide, in England, Belgium, Greece, Saudi Arabia and China.

    Detailed Description : In her studio practice, Pelias embraces a process that is both intuitive and deliberate. Her work moves from paintings on canvas and works on paper to site-specific installations, objects and video. Her intention is to invite the viewers to experience a suspended moment and also to engage in their own consciousness. The human-size scale of her interactions with diverse media allows the viewer to immerse oneself in the work as opposed to simply being an observer. Greek rituals and icons, the rich Afro-Caribbean culture in New Orleans, the shifting landscape of both her immediate environment, Louisiana, and of her familial home, Greece, all equally inform her work. Relationships have always been at the center of what motivates Pelias to make art. These often include formal relationships dealing with color, marks and space as well as the different kinds of tension that exist between objects and forms. Her work draws upon relationships between people, their narratives and their environments while also exploring the complexities and absurdities of these connections – between man and woman, between mother and daughter and between friends. Deep ancestral connections are ever-present in Pelias’ works, weaving their way through and in between her exploration of these relationships – resonating even if they’re not always understood. Pelias wants to reveal the poetic moments that exist within and between these relationships. She hopes to create work that is full of emotion and visual pleasure.

  • Gina Phillips  (+)

    Biography : GINA PHILLIPS is a mixed media, narrative artist who grew up in Kentucky and has lived in New Orleans since 1995. The imagery, stories and characters of both regions influence her work. She started her career as a painter, but over the years, has increasingly incorporated fabric and thread into her work. She begins a piece with a simple under-painting in acrylic paint on canvas or muslin…then finishes the piece by appliquéing fabric and thread on top. Phillips uses a communal gathering process to source her fabrics, as neighbors, friends, family often donate to her artistic process. Phillip’s work is characterized by a raw, narrative quality. The people and animals telling the story often embody a magical realism. Gina Phillips has a BFA from the University of Kentucky and an MFA from Tulane University’s Newcomb College. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and museums across the country including Pepperdine University, Ballroom Marfa, The Ogden Museum of Southern Art, the 21c Museum in Louisville, KY, the 21c Museum in Bentonville, AR, and Mason-Scharfenstein Museum of Art at Piedmont College in Demorest, GA. In addition, her work has been presented at numerous art fairs including PULSE LA, PULSE Miami, Texas Contemporary, VOLTA Basel, Miami Project for Art Basel Miami Beach, Seattle Art Fair, and Art Market San Francisco. Phillips’ work has been featured in Art in America, Oxford American, The Times-Picayune and ARTNews, among others. She was selected as one of twenty-seven international artists featured in the Prospect.2 Biennial of Contemporary Art curated by Dan Cameron and her collection of fabric portraits was exhibited as a solo project at VOLTA8 as part of Art Basel in Basel, Switzerland. In 2014, Phillips' work was featured in a mid-career retrospective at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans, LA and at the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, AR in a group exhibition of 102 artists from across the country, entitl

  • Peter Sarkisian  (+)

    Biography : PETER SARKISIAN is an American video artist and early practitioner of digital image mapping techniques. He has been featured in nearly 80 international museum exhibitions spanning more than 20 years. In 2005, he was named a Master Video Artist by the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), in its annual report to the White House. Major public museums and venues to have exhibited Sarkisian's work include: Whitney Museum of American Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, The National Museum of Art, Taiwan, The Orange County Museum of Art, The Picasso Museum, France, The New Museum, New York, and several others. Sarkisian was among a group of artists to project video images against non-planar viewing surfaces - a technique he helped develop in the 1990's by digitally augmenting the spatial characteristics of projected images to match physical surfaces of varying shape and angular orientation. Since then, Sarkisian has pushed the state of his art in an effort to discover new and exciting techniques, often incorporating cutting edge technology such as 3D CNC, vacuum forming and 3D printing into his creative process. Many of Sarkisian's earliest methods predate those now used in the entertainment and multi-media industries. In 2008, the Mechanical Engineering magazine published a feature article on Sarkisian's work, noting his innovations: "Technology is transforming human experience and the means we use to tell our stories. Visionaries like Peter Sarkisian are addressing its challenges by using technology in new and innovative ways, as ally and tool, providing fresh experience and renewed meaning."

    Detailed Description : V a n i t a s V a s e s I’ve long taken inspiration from the Dutch/Flemish tradition of Vanitas still life painting in which the notion of futility is key. I look to translate that futility into an artistic gesture by rendering what is representational and static in the fluid medium of glaze, knowing that what is painstakingly depicted will change beyond my control once fired. My process captures a fleeting moment reminiscent of the temporal nature of life. In the Vanitas tradition the flower serves as an observable metaphor for human life and death. My vases are intended for use. Conceptually, by placing flowers in one, the metaphor is realized through vitality and inevitable decay. In form, my work is a synthesis of craft and painting. Although many have painted on pottery through the ages, I have cultivated a new technique where glaze is the primary medium. Reactions between glaze and the clay body allow me to achieve values of shading similar to that of the Old Masters paintings. Invoking impermanence in the enduring medium of ceramic becomes a hopeful act, and in some small way, futility gives way to optimism.

    Detailed Description : The artist says of his source material: I have a relationship with Sure We Can, a reclamation center started and staffed by homeless "Canners" in Bushwick, Brooklyn. All the aluminum cans have come from them for last several years. We had to convince the canners to collect the crushed cans, as these cans can't be redeemed for deposit and are truly worthless. I pay the canners more than the going rate for the cans, and have donated an installation which is installed in the facility. The future of Sure We Can is in jeopardy as the lot it's on is for sale.
