Issue no. 2

Anoka Faruqee and David Driscoll, 2020P-01 (Circle), 2020, acrylic on linen on panel, 56 1/4 x 56 1/4 inches
I'm seeing a resurgence in contemporary artists utilizing the tools of Op Art — the repetition of simple geometric forms which creates visual effects like vibration, movement or illusion — to explore the nature of perception. I wonder too, if they’re reflecting the zeitgeist…by creating disorienting objects they’re mirroring a confusing time. Todd Hosfelt
Tim Hawkinson, Ooluflai, 2020, India ink on Yupo paper, 84 x 56 inches; HOS 15029

From the Studio

In Nairobi, Kenya, I visited a collection of roughly 5.5 million butterflies from the continent of Africa. This priceless scientific resource was compiled and is cared for by a private individual. I began this series of paintings with the hope that it would inspire an institution or individual to step up to safeguard the collection’s future. Of course, I'm also documenting and celebrating the profound beauty and biological diversity of the planet. What creature is more symbolic of hope than the butterfly?

Social Media Highlight

Lordy Rodriguez, Texas's 33rd, 2020, ink on paper, 60 x 35 inches
@hosfeltgallery: Texas's 33rd is from Lordy Rodriguez’s series, Gerrymandered Congressional Districts. Using the language of cartography, Rodriguez makes drawings that go beyond map-making into abstracted, imaginary terrain. In his new body of work, using a randomized process of selecting color, Rodriguez identifies the highly irregular shapes of disputed districts, raising questions about democracy, voter suppression and representation.
