Student Artwork Update: Katie Earle

June 14th, 2017

We are pleased to present textile art by SVACE student Katie Earle in collaboration with photographer Oge Erike. Katie created this artwork in conjunction with the course, “Introduction to Fiber Art and Costumes” with Aimee Morgana.

The artists write:

Katherine Earle (b. 1984) is a textile artist whose work often engages with traditional fibers processes, photography and text. The photographs in this series were digitally printed onto polyester satin and then embellished with embroidery using Brother embroidery machines. The concept of repetition is explored both in using thread to re-create existing shapes from the image, as well as through embroidering multiple versions of the same photo. This series illustrates the many ways in which concepts as simple as lines and form, as they travel through various mediums and through time, are transformed, distorted and re-interpreted. Katherine is a graduate of the Fibres program at Concordia University in Montréal, Québec and continues her studies at the School of Visual Arts Continuing Education program.

Oge Erike (b. 1981) is a photographer whose work represents the life and times of himself, a sweet glorious child of god, born and raised in this heaven called New York, aka God’s armpit.

See more of Katie’s artwork at her website and Instagram. Visit us to see this artwork in our exhibition space at 380 Second Avenue, 8th floor, until June 29!

Faculty Updates

June 3rd, 2017

What have SVACE faculty members been up to? We have exciting updates from course instructors Jade Doskow, Elise Engler, Emily Weiner, and Pan Terzis!

Jade Doskow will speak at SVA about Lost Utopias, her ongoing photography and book project. Doskow is known for her rigorously composed and eerily poetic images that examine the intersection of people, nature and time. Her talk is part of the i3: Images, Ideas, Inspiration lecture series, which features photographers and industry experts, presented by SVA MPS Digital Photography.

Elise Engler is featured in The Times, a group exhibition at the FLAG Art Foundation that takes The New York Times as its point of departure. The Times includes over 80 artists, artist duos, and collectives who “use the ‘paper of record’ to address and reframe issues that impact our everyday lives,” according to the press release. Given Engler’s project, “First Radio Headlines Heard of the Day,” her daily documentations of news updates are perfect fit for the show – and above the fold.

Emily Weiner is featured in The In, With and Between Us at the Gerðarsafn – Kópavogur Art Museum, Iceland! Focused on four artists, including three MFA alumni from the School of Visual Arts, the show comprises “a research-based conversation around non-linear readings of place and time, language and translation.”

Pan Terzis opens up to The Comics Journal about printing, publishing, and politics in his collaborative practice. He writes, “Publishing other artists’ work has been extremely gratifying. I benefited early on from other people going out of their way to publish, promote, show, and sell my work so I feel I owe a debt of gratitude to the universe and it feels good to give other artists the same opportunity.”
