Blind Contour: Seth Price on White Noise

In this episode of Blind Contour, we sit down with exhibiting artist Seth Price and discuss his use of white noise in his current exhibition No Technique, as well as some past stories of sound working in a Tower Records. Since the early 2000s, artist Seth Price has produced a diverse body of work that interrogates contemporary visual culture.

Blind Contour: Seth Price on White Noise

Bind Contour: Christina Quarles

This week on Blind Contour we’re sitting down with Christina Quarles, our final interview from ArtCrush 2019¬. In this audio profile we check in on the artist and discuss her current practice, composition choices, and goals within her abstract, figurative paintings. Legibility teeters on the edge of lack and excess; when we lack information about a thing, it is vague. However, as information accumulates, the risk for contradiction increases and legibility tips into ambiguity. As a queer, cis woman born to a black father and a white mother, Christina Quarles engages with the world from a position that is multiply situated. Her work is informed by her daily experience with ambiguity and seeks to dismantle assumptions of our fixed subjectivity through images that challenge the viewer to contend with the disorganized body in a state of excess. Christina Quarles (b. 1985 Chicago, USA) currently lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. She received an MFA from the Yale School of Art in 2016 ...

Blind Contour: Nir Hod

This Weeks Blind Contour comes from painter Nir Hod at ArtCrush 2019. Hear him speak about the importance of beauty, and his approach to painting his monumental, reflective canvases. About the artist: Nir Hod’s paintings and sculptures address the paradox of beauty and horror, repulsion and attraction, and the declining state of American culture in late capitalism. Working in techniques handed down hundreds of years from Old Masters, the beauty of these oil paints belie other more sinister and disturbing truths. It took Hod two years to develop a process of control versus random, chance reactions between chrome, solvents, and various industrial tools used to remove top layers of chrome to ultimately reveal the colorful Pollock-like action paintings shown above. Hod’s “performative” approach to painting produced highly reflective surfaces, drawing the viewer in and allowing the viewer to see their reflection as if looking into a large mirror. A commentary on today’s highly self-...

Blind Contour: Soo Sunny Park

During ArtCrush 2019, we sat down with some of the attending artists for a new audio series called Blind Contour to discuss their current practices and happenings. This episode features artist and sculptor Soo Sunny Park speaking about the process of making her expansive wire, glass, metal, and light installations. Soo Sunny Park's work challenges the boundaries between sculpture, installation, and drawing. Individual pieces are hybrids, which fall in-between, rather than within, any of these categories. Sculptures are drawings, drawings are sculptures, and installations are sculptures and drawings at once. she labels the totality of her work as sculpture to provide an overarching framework within the critical discourse of studio art, to identify work that Vladimir Tatlin called the “real object in real space.” Park use art to explore the spaces between the categories that structure our existence.
