Showing posts from March, 2011

Leon Reid IV "A Decade of Public Art" opens 4/16/11

Today, Anything Seems Possible opened last week at Hand Held.

Lizzy Sampson is a
philatelist... although not in the traditional sense.

Lizzy's work is comprised of intricate miniature paper cuts which utilize the beautiful papers colours and textures found on the insides of envelopes and on the back of stamps.

It is these papers Lizzy manipulates as tiny pieces to create intricate collages, neat texts and rough piles.

The show continues until April 5th.


On Display NOW!!


New works and an installation featuring Peruvian vernacular posters – and a diminutive discotheque
On Display: Fri. March 11 – Sat. April 2, 2011
Opening Reception Friday, March 11, 2011, 7-11pm
¡NO HABLA ESPAÑOL! is El Celso’s most personal show to date. This new series of works was inspired by a recent trip to Peru where the artist became obsessed with posters made in the “chicha” style. These hand-made posters line city streets all over Peru and generally feature an eye-popping neon color palette and commercial graphics-inspired lettering. They are generally used to advertise working class concerts and other events. During a recent trip around Peru, in 2010, Celso began collecting discarded and out-of-date fragments of these posters – known as afiches chicha in Spanish – from the streets of towns such as Chachapoyas, Chiclayo, Cajamarca and Lima (to name a few).
Further inspired by their look, he established contact with the esteemed Fortunato Urcuhuaran…

today, anything seems possible'

As we let go of Eddy Carroll's beautiful exhibition, next week sees the installation of Lizzy Sampson's 'today, anything seems possible', an exhibition of collages and artist books made from stamps, envelopes, postmarks and other written correspondence. This exhibition continues her use of philatelic materials and celebrates the pale greens, blues and browns of distant times while exploring notions of frugality, collecting, hoarding and sorting.
