Nina Carelli’s workstems from a strange, reflective land where the cosmos dances with the man-made. It calls upon ideas of death and the experiences beyond, while tethering our thoughts back to Earth with images of pop culture seen through coke bottle lenses. Carelli currently has a solo show at Brooklyn’s Causey Contemporary through May 27.
Future archeologists will discover the textiles, etchings, and watercolors of Olivia Wendel and put them up in space museums to show 40th century people that 20th century people weren’t that primitive after all.
I love this series of color etchings by Chinese artist, Luo Tao. Of the project, she says: ‘since the 2008 Olympic games, China has grown like a giant and been frequently commented about by the British media. I have drawn on my perspective as a native Chinese person to comment on aspects of Chinese culture and education. I have this done through etching images that combine political satire, allegory and dark humor’.
