Tessa Farmer’s Sculptural Decay

Tessa Farmer’s miniscule sculptures reinvigorate a belief in fairies: not the sweet Tinkerbell image in popular conscience, but a biological, entomological, macabre species translating pastoral fable into nightmarish lore. Constructed from bits of organic material, such as roots, leaves, and dead insects, each of Tessa’s figures stand barely 1 cm tall, their painstakingly intricate detail visible only through a magnifying glass.

Hovering with rarefied, jewel-like beauty, Tessa’s tiny spectacles resound with a theurgist exotica: their specimen forms borrow from Victorian occultism to evolve as something alien and futuristic. Playing out apocalyptic narratives of a microscopic underworld, Tessa’s manikin wonders rule with baneful fervour: harnessing mayflies, battling honey bees, attacking spindly spiders. Presented as wee preternatural discoveries, Tessa’s sculptures conjure a superstitious premise, dismantling the mythos of fantasia with evidence of something much more gothic, sinister, and bewitching.”

CMRTYZ

CMRTYZ makes lo-fi, hand made posters and prints just like the ones to your favorite punk shows from when you were a teenager. It’s refreshing to see that some people are keeping the DIY show posters alive and still having fun with it. Makes me want to start a band, make my own flyers and play in front of 200 of my closest friends in a smelly old basement.

Friends With You NYC Opening

Adorno once said, “Those who peruse art solely with comprehension make it into something straightforward, which is furthest from what it is. If one seeks to get a closer look at a rainbow, it disappears.” Respectively, I am going to have to disagree with his insightful assertion. That is, after experiencing the FriendsWithYou New York city take over this past week. The emotional and visual experience of FriendsWithYou art on display starting this past week proved that artwork can be successfully and simply straightforward, while still perpetuating depth within its comprehension. Furthermore it was proven that sometimes, the rainbow doesn’t have to disappear.
