Made With Color Presents: Rachel Meuler’s Hybrid Beasts

Rachel MeulerRachel MeulerMeuler_2014_05_they-sank-and-settled-into-forgotten-recesses_24x30inMeuler_2014_06_and-warmth-raised-the-shoots-and-known-things,-24x30in

Made With Color, a website builder for artists and creatives, and Beautiful/Decay team up each week to bring you some of the best contemporary artists and designers from around the world. Website builder Made With Color helps artists easily create well-designed mobile/tablet responsive websites in a few minutes without having to touch a line of code.This week we are pleased to present the work of Made With Color user Rachel Meuler.

New York City based artist Rachel Meuler is a collagist of sorts. However instead of cutting up magazines and books to create her imagery, Meuler cleverly combines a mix of animal and human figures to create a new species of hybrid beings.These half man half beast figures are in a constant state of motion and transformation. The combination of human and animal imagery reinforces the similarities between all living things, while referencing characters from ancient mythologies, folklore and fairy tales, Jungian archetypes, evolutionary anomalies, and the mutant results of genetic engineering – beings originating from and entrenched in cultural fears and fantasies.  These subjects are shown exchanging information through a language of posturing, mirroring, projecting, and cannibalizing traits from each other and their surroundings, within compositional structures that imply hierarchy and narrative, but remain inconclusive.

Made With Color Presents: Anja Priska Is Monkeying Around With Humanities Fate

It’s Tuesday which means it’s time once again for our exclusive partnership with premiere website building platform Made With Color to bring you the best contemporary art and design from around the world. Our friends at Made With Color help creative people from all walks of life build sleek and user friendly websites in minutes, allowing artists to use their spare time doing what’s important, making art! This week we’re excited to bring the work of London based artist and Made With Color user Anja Priska.

Since 2009 monkeys, one of the most common and ambiguously-loaded animals in the history of art, occupy an increasingly important role in the work painter and sculptor Anja Priska. Mixing elements of hard edged abstraction, pop culture, and humor, Priska creates wonderfully bizarre worlds where our DNA sharing cousins run amuck, kick back, and most of all make us humans take a closer look at ourselves.

Constantly developing the primates in her work into metaphors of the intuitive process of being, Priska gives them the suggestion of a voice on humanity’s fate as well as their own. By performing caricatured roles of humans the monkeys hold up a mirror to their audience, making us aware of how much we mimic ourselves and others in order to be.

Made With Color Presents: Yambe Tam’s Graphic Paintings Addressing Asian-American Identity Politics

Our favorite website building platform Made With Color are here again to bring you another  exclusive artist feature. Each week we join forces to bring you some of the most exciting artists and designers who use Made With Color to create their clean and sleek websites. Made With Color makes building websites easy with no coding and easy to use click and drag functionality designed specifically for artists. Each site comes with a built-in mobile site and is completely responsive for smart phones and tablets. This week we’re pleased to present the work of Yambe Tam.

Baltimore based Yambe Tam’s graphic paintings fuse Eastern and Western art into an uniquely Asian-American aesthetic to show that combining the two can create something harmonious. The work not only reconciles Tam’s own identity as an Asian-American who doesn’t completely belong to either society, but also addresses the relationship between China and the U.S.

Themes in her work speak to shared experiences between the two cultures: environmental destruction that ultimately affects all of humanity, convergent lineages (haplogroups) from prehistoric times, and folklore from various cultures that are a reminder of our shared human condition.
Often, Tam works in pairs of paintings that are informed by the Taoist concept of Dualism. This branch of philosophy particularly resonated with her as it purports that all of existence operates on opposing but complementary forces such as light and dark, heaven and earth, east and west. No one force in a pair is better than the other, but rather equal by coexisting in balance.
