Shadow by Ari Takata-Vasquez
Acrylic on birch cradle
When the hearts and brains behind Viscera decided to take on the title of Artist for the Twist art show, Ari & Jen were thinking about jumping from one layer to another. They were thinking about how we all cross over from one position to another and they wanted to take cues from their collaboration. They thought about all five senses and they considered two, three or even more dimensions.
In this show, Ari is taking on the challenge to make art from her gut, not out of her design training. She tried to access the little kid inside that created wardrobes out of plastic shopping bags. Ari was inspired by the space and the other artists she's worked with. She worked with negative and transparent space for this show.
