Jean-Robert says ~ ~ ~
My collage art started 20+ years ago with art-mail postcard/letter correspondences with my older brother which still continues to this day. Due to this origin my collages nearly always include both text and images that provide a layered visual and mental narrative (telling a story). I find it essential that both modes exist in union for balance of polarities such as left brain/right brain, magnetic/electric, sound/light, and atlantis/lemuria. What started on my kitchen table has now grown to running a)sp.”A”©e Studio•Art•Gallery for the last 5 years in Silver City, New Mexico exhibiting my 2D text/image collages and 3D assemblage sculptures as well as showcasing other local artists.
ta ta for now [!!!!!!!] x
HELLO! new work this week [week 5 of ‘Fresh Figs‘] comes from Danai Gkoni 😀 the collage above is called ‘Touristic Season’ and the one below is ‘Storm is Coming’… here’s Danai’s bio ~ ~ ~
Τhe cities I lived in are constant inspirations as spatial and social conditions ~ those images are dystopic and entertaining at the same time. Coming from the field of architecture I’m deeply interested in the dynamics of space and the built environment, the urban lifestyle and its aesthetics, the pleasure of urbanity as a space of togetherness and isolation at the same time- those are the concepts I try to explore as a digital artist.
Danai Gkoni is an architect and digital artist. She has lived, studied and worked in Greece and the Netherlands. During her studies, she developed a keen interest on the contemporary urban condition. With architectural collage as a starting point, since 2013 she is exploring a particular style of digital illustration- narrating surreal and sometimes dystopic urban stories.
