Thirteen Glass Graters 1998 / Exhibition at Rena Bransten Gallery
Chicago based artist, Candida Alvarez, will exhibit paintings, drawing, and objects using conventional and unconventional materials to explore aspects of memory. Ever since her childhood introduction to paint by numbers artworks and her own pen-and-ink drawings, she has delighted in cartoons, handicafts, kitsch, and other condensed symbols and manifestations of popular culture. A job during college at New York's Museo del Barrio sparked her interest in Pre Columbian art that led her to African art that inspired her to make figurative sculptures one could handle. The use of fabric led to collage and eventually diptychs that, in her words, showed the "duality between self and the outside world". For Alvarez, the linkage of disparate elements is what life and painting are all about - a reality where abstraction and representation meet.

Ruscha has consistently combined the cityscape of Los Angeles with vernacular language to communicate a particular urban experience. Encompassing photography, drawing, painting, and artist books, Ruscha's work holds the mirror up to the banality of urban life and give order to the barrage of mass media-fed images and information that confront us daily. Ruscha's early career as a graphic artist continues to strongly influence his aesthetic and thematic approach.

Through her pointed and deftly edited video installations, Candice looks at the stereotypes and visual conventions in film and popular culture. These videos often explore the relationship between the god-like presence of pop stars and actors, and their awestruck fans.

He traveled throughout North America before returning to New York, where he exhibited at the Seth Siegelaub Gallery in 1964 and 1965. Weiner’s early work included experiments with systematic approaches to shaped canvases and, later, cutting out squares of material from carpeting or walls.

Rocks Upon the Beach Sand Upon the Rocks 1988 Paint on wall, Dimensions variable / MoMA New York
Weiner's medium is language. As a Conceptual artist his constructions of words and phrases seek to affect our perception of the spaces they are presented in. In appearance the language used by the artist is plain and neutral. In effect, however, this particular piece is quite evocative—the artist invites us to imagine ourselves surrounded by sand and rocks as we enter a space inhabited by art.

Exhibiton Philippe Ramette's Works 2005 Gallery Xippas
For 15 years, Phillippe Ramette has been devising and making objects, complements to the human body, that amplify its potential under special, paradoxical conditions while at the same time initiating the thinking process. They are devices or mechanisms that allow him to put himself in strange circumstances, enabling his body to experience what should have otherwise been a mental process. At the begining Phillippe Ramette defined himself above all as a sculptor with photography playing a secondary role in his work; soon however it began to expand its role as a testimony. Today Ramette stages himself using his objects and photography has become the pretext and the end result for all kinds of tests and experiences.

Jamie Reid

Jamie Reid
born 1947 Croydon Surrey,UK

website: www.jamiereid.uk.net

Jamie Reid educated at John Ruskin Grammar School in Croydon, is a British artist and anarchist with connections to the Situationists. His work, featuring letters cut from newspaper headlines in the style of a ransom note came close to defining the image of punk rock, particularly in the UK. His best work is cover art of the Sex Pistols album.



San Francisco Busses1975

Produced by Suburban Press for Point Blank (San Franciscan situationist collective) this image was re-imported and put to good use by Jamie several years later for the Pretty Vacant promo poster. A negative version also appeared on the back cover of the single.

Artwork Lithograph Suburban press


God Save The Queen 1977
Cover art of The Sex Pistols

The art works are juxtaposed within eighteen rooms to allow for similarities or versions of the same line of thought which the two countries shared during that era.

Although its curators claim that the exhibition does not centre on Punk music, it begins on a seminally musical note with the anti-royalist album cover artwork designed by Jamie Reid for the Sex Pistol’s controversial 1977 debut God Save the Queen, which was famously released the year of the Silver Jubilee.
