What a Bloody Mess is an exhibition that will be held at grayDUCK gallery where three artists compile their artistic abilities to discuss fear and speculate about the future. From environmental concerns to military conflicts to politics, each artist use his or her media to reflect upon an issue and interrogate the spirit of our time. While each artists takes a different approach in representing his or her media, all of their pieces reflect on and interrogate the world in which we live.
Hammonds is an ART faculty member who presents her work through drawings and installations. She focuses on combining different images or riffraff picked up on street corners to create scenes that conjures and feels close to her own memories. From issues regarding global warming to consumerist culture, natural disasters and wartime imagery, her work is a conglomeration of mundane objects and precious artifacts that serve as evidence of the issues that she's passionate in.
Hassin is an SEU alumni, class of 2012 who's work focuses on research and facts to create her pieces. Often, she uses newspapers as time capsules to capture the essence of current issues. These issues can be about race, the justice system, death, the military, or suicide and mental illness and she strives to share these issues through paper. She also uses clothing which are transformed into soft paper which are then ripped up and rolled into tightly spiraled objects. These spirals represent an individual life, from beginning to end. And with research and facts, she is able to give a voice to each of these rolled papers.
Claude van Lingen
Lingen is a South African artist who moved to New York in 1978, and moved to Austin in 2006. His series, The 1000 Years From Now, reflects his concern for the environment and the political and social wellbeing of our universe. By writing dates, lists of names, figurative and nonfigurative painting and/or photographs combined with TV sets and mirrors as well as performances, he expresses the layering of the physical, conscious, and subconscious experiences that individuals and the global population experiences. This layering links the past to the constantly-changing present, and the up-and-coming future.
