10 questions: Eli Cortiñas

It’s hard to find artists who talk as passionately about montage and film editing as Eli Cortiñas (Las Palmas, Canary Islands, 1979). You can see her dreamy expression running through all the potential stories she has in her hands, but with a theoretical and rational goal that emanates from years of seeing and working with films. She uses a similar modus operandi when creating her sculptures and collages, often independent from her video pieces, but at times establishing parallelisms with them.

"Gathering of the famous" by Anita Yan Wong

There have always been strong undeniable connections between politics and art, especially in those moments in history when politics becomes the center of public interests. By being extremely sensitive to all kinds of changes, artists transform the anxiety and tension in society into poignant and meditative art works. Prof. Anita Yan Wong (international artist, educator and thinker), answers our 10 question interview with reflections on her artistic drive, and an artistic life well-lived.

“Varied, understated, serious and humorous" - 10 questions to Jeff Grant

“Varied, understated, serious and humorous" - 10 questions to Jeff Grant

The work of Jeff Grant (b. 1975) is forthright in its perplexity. Every piece he creates centers on concealment, the ambiguous presence, forcing the viewer to engage in a search. In a way, some of his works appear distressing. They are not abstract, although shapes and objects seem blurred and disturbed. His chosen palette, black and white or colors dimmed and subtle, only emphasizes the mental haze. Portrait outlines are fuzzy and the objects from Grant's "Creation" series appear as fantastical artefacts with tortured surfaces, holding turbulent air underneath.

"Driving off into the sunset" - 10 questions to Grear Patterson

NYC-based artist Grear Patterson (b. 1988, USA) uses mixed media to create ideal locations, inspired by the 1993 film “True Romance”. For his running solo show in London's Marlborough Contemporary, Patterson presents large-scale sunsets, recreating the film though visual and audio means. For an entire month, the gallery space was transformed into a dream with extreme colours in simplified forms. Patterson is playing with viewer’s nostalgia, reflecting on the themes of childhood memories and imaginary worlds, inviting us to consider how far away a parallel reality may be.

10 questions: Chris Dorland

I always knew I had something to give or say. The kind of confidence one needs to be an artist for the long haul- I've always had that. Even as a very small child. But it didn't have a name or a real drive until I was a teenager.

10 questions: Adeline de Monseignat

My work is an attempt to make the inanimate trigger emotional responses. It is tactile yet distant, seductive yet disconcerting, familiar yet alien, absurd yet sensible, inanimate yet ‘alive’.

10 questions: Kurt Ralske

I’m an artist who makes videos, installations, performances, prints. My undergraduate degree is in Computer Science, and my graduate degree is an MFA in Art Criticism. So I am a person who is “good at computers”, but who has spent a lot of time thinking about art, technology, aesthetics, and politics. I use my programming abilities to create art that is connected to the theoretical and critical positions that interest me: the nature of images, the power of the archive, and the nexus of the political and the spiritual.
