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.

iLLUSiONAL
Kat Ryals, joshuagabriel, Dario Mohr, Jonathan Sims and Valeria Divinorum

The artist plays endless roles in society - storyteller, trickster, archivist, agitator, rock star, activist, historian, entertainer... iLLUSiONAL examines the role of the artist as Magician/manipulator of reality. The artist takes ideas from the invisible realms and manifests them into physical or digital reality. The artist transforms raw materials into new forms and literally creates worlds out of thin air. These magical acts are conjured out of a necessity to create artifacts that express the concerns and obsessions of the greater consciousness through the individual.

Tales of a Phoenix
The Letting Go Project
Yana Schnitzler

Tales of a Phoenix: The Letting Go Project is a visual art exhibition and durational performance that harnesses the power of ritual to bring women together from across the world in a unified release of old patterns that no longer serve their personal growth. Over the past year, women contributed pieces of fabric inscribed with their intentions of what they wish to let go of. In a meditative performance seated in the gallery window, artist Yana Schnitzler will stitch these testimonies together into a room-filling skirt, representing the global collective feminine voice. With pieces from 36 different countries and states, the work creates a tapestry of personal stories from all walks of life and cultures, offering a glimpse of where women stand with the struggles they face today. Female onlookers are invited to participate by sharing their desires for release on a provided piece of fabric that will be added to the performance project. As the garment grows over the five-week period, it will emerge as a sea of fabric filling the entire space.

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.

Good Morning, China!(早上好,中国!)
Yang Mai

Yang Mai’s work focuses on the possible functions that clothing can have in sculpture and how to articulate these possibilities in the language of gallery installations. By removing commercial seriousness from the industrial and introducing playful or exaggerated features, his work hopes to encourage and celebrate our rebellious human nature and establish alternative symbolizations of the present reality.

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.

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.

The Language of Form and Color
Megan Olson

The title of this show is from Kandinsky’s seminal book “On the Spiritual in Art,” and references the way in which abstraction strives to communicate what can be described as a universal language using the aesthetics of form and color.

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.

Impulses and Incrustations
Elizabeth Knowles

Living forms inspire my work. Some are biological patterns on the cellular level of organisms. Others are geological patterns of the earth's natural landscapes. Utilizing a variety of media, my work explores how both static and dynamic patterns in nature reveal the mysterious relationship between differing scales of perception, thereby connecting landscapes and life forms, physiology and physics, death and detritus, and growth and life.
