At The Table
The Art Students League

The Art Students League opens the year 2021 with a feast in the form of a new group exhibition: “At The Table.” The artists set “the table” with diverse interpretations on the theme; some artists approach the table by creating thoughtful compositions of food-based still lives, a tradition with a long history from Dutch Baroque Masters to Wayne Thiebaud’s pop desserts.

Little Giants and Common People
Andrew Hockenberry

I define my style as subconscious abstract, painting without consideration of the end result. I do not believe in mistakes or editing the way I have manipulated the surface. Using music as a rhythm and flow to my paintings, I make each piece balanced while experimenting with alternative applications and materials. It’s as simple as paint on surface, surface being anything to hold paint, paint being anything to make an impression on surface.

Victim Shame, Body Blame
Christy E. O'Connor

Victim Shame, Body Blame is an analysis of American rape culture, toxic masculinity and the ever lasting effects our patriarchal society has had on both men and women, as we continue to blame and shame the victims of sexual violence, as perpetrators are rendered free from culpability. This body of work is an analysis on the amalgamation of victim shaming tropes that men and women are taught throughout their lives, both passively and actively, through social norms, pop culture, our educational and legal systems, religious establishments, and familial influences and upbringing.

Sonic Sunlight
Sasha Vom Dorp

Sasha Raphael vom Dorp has made these photographs to better know his place in the universe. Our ability to travel the cosmos being limited, he’s built a machine in an attempt to observe elemental transactions. He’s created a mechanical solution to what is a metaphysical problem, forcing basic elements of perception —sound, light, and matter—into a single frame. These are photographs of sound encountering sunlight, as seen through the medium of water.

Alluring Language
John Black

John Black, an American visual artist/creator based out of NYC was born in southern West Virginia in 1986. Black studied at Miami International School of Art and Design with a focus on the communication between energy and motion. Black is currently creating abstract artworks that are now developing into a sort of coded language throughout color study and formations, allowing a sense of meditation through new techniques and methods, organically discovered. The current works are influenced heavily by Native American and African roots, allowing the works to connect Black with his ancestors and to communicate that energy to an observer, in hopes to relay emotion.
