Charlie Quezada focuses in approaching everyday life as an essential subject matter for the understanding of the creative process. From this exploration traditional genres such as portrait, interior, and landscape, are refreshed through a simplified representation.  His paintings refer to a figurative language, which stems from the need of creating shapes from reality but at the same time containing traces of abstraction in a search for quite tension. The result are subjective places where everyday objects emerge.

Artwork of the day:
Variable 2, by Alejandra Barreda
.

“I work within the framework of geometric abstraction, and I investigate the web of connections between painting and the spatial context. Each project is inseparable from the specific space in which it is inserted in each case. The same work can be displayed in multiple different ways, sometimes exploring untypical parts of the wall. I often work in series and with a multiplicity of canvases, which prevents the gaze from converging on a fixed point. And I work systematically with lines, which produces an effect of continuity and expands the pictorial surface, blurring the boundaries between the work and the wall.“

Lautaro’s work is intimately linked with the beauty of a manifested truth. His work is honest by nature. This ignites in the viewer something forgotten which reminds people who we really are.
He creates compositions which are utterly precise, or rather, he creates the structure for which a more beautiful forms can inhabit that composition...a form that evoques nostalgia of perfection, nostalgia of harmony.

“My work revolves around the deconstruction and construction of structures. Order and its reason makes itself felt in that which is manifested as a mark of identity, as a limit. One embraces as one’s own what has been learned but there are always thresholds that invite us to disruption, to evolution as the aim of everything created.”

Artist of the day:
Josemiel Platz
.

Josemiel Platz was born in San Miguel de Tucumán, Argentina, in 1982. His art revolves around the creation and destruction of spaces as a means of rebellion against that which is set, as a way of underscoring transformation and natural changes. Each present state holds in it what happened before, earlier traits and experiences, in a sense of endlessness and no return. The abstract is, for him, a way of reflecting universality, a labyrinth with many ways-in and no certain outcome. A constantly shifting dance. Space and the body are the structuring vectors; the tension between surface and figure, the gravitational, rejection of space and loss of balance connect to the spiritual in a proposal where alchemy and creativity meet to generate art.

Scherezade Garcia is an interdisciplinary visual artist born in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic and based in New York. In her work she addresses contemporary allegories of history and processes of colonization and politics, which frequently evoke memories of faraway home and the hopes and dreams that accompany planting roots in a new land. By engaging collective and ancestral memory in her public intervention and studio-based practice, she examines quasi-mythical portraits of migration and cultural colonization. Garcia holds an AAS from Altos de Chavón School of Design, a BFA from Parsons-The New School and an MFA from the City College of New York. She is the recipient of a 2015 Joan Mitchell Foundation grant. She is a co- founder of the Dominican York ProyectoGráfica and sits on the Advisory Board of No Longer Empty. She has participated in the S-Files Biennial, the IV Caribbean Biennial, the Havana Biennial and other international venues. Garcia has exhibited widely with projects such as Super Tropics, Paradise Redefined, Theories of Freedom, This Side of Paradise-No Longer Empty, Souvenir, Stories of Fallen Angels, Tales of Freedom and others. Her work is in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, El Museo del Barrio, The Housatonic Museum, Museo de Arte Moderno de Santo Domingo and private collections. Her personal papers are in the collection of the Archives of American Art at the Smithsonian Institution. Her latest public commission by Columbia University, The Liquid Highway is on view until June 2016 at Miller Theater. Garcia is currently represented by Praxis Gallery in NY. She is a faculty member of the Parsons School of Design in New York.

Entering Misla’s world✨
.

Misla is a native New York artist whose works acknowledge both the loss and survival of culture through colonization, immigration, and gentrification. With a focus on her Nuyorican community, the Puerto Rican diaspora in New York, she employs mixed media to create immersive works. Primarily using painting and collage in combination with animation and installation, her pieces use imagery related to the precarious nature of home and local extensions within a threatened community.

We can’t wait to open our doors again for you to be enlightened by Platz show — in the meantime let’s pause, stay positive and take good care of each other.

Forsaking God, Finding Oneself

Language as a framework
Of a God that named us,
a dogma that formed us
and a blind faith that numbed us.
Who am I?
Who do I want to be?
Can we unframe that which is holding us?
So fake, yet so real
Fear kills life
And in this game of finding your own words,
No pain, no gain.
It's about time we excommunicated the middle men
And created our own vocabulary
That is the endless encounter
Never so lost
Never this free
Always attentive
To the great spirit that I am.

Welcome to the Estefania Velez Rodriguez’s world
.
.

Estefania Velez Rodriguez is a painter born in Mayaguez Puerto Rico and currently resides in Brooklyn New York. Her paintings are informed by contemporary education in Abstraction as well as personal digestion of cultural normalities within the United States of America. Finishing her MFA in painting with experimental studies in video media, she also creates sketch videos that address identity politics and time rupture. Her paintings formally address questions between abstraction, non-representation, simplification, symbol, and painting as a language with ambiguous structural limitations.

Estefania is interested in pushing the limits in her liminal identity structure; sometimes she can fly like a bird and other times she can only swim like a fish. The moments in which code switching through oral language, painted language, or physical makeup are successful are when navigation through multiple worlds can happen without drawback from the receiver.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
✨SOFIA QUIRNO✨
.
Argentina-born, Brooklyn based painter Sofia Quirno has been part of Praxis’s roster since 2015. Her first solo show with us was titled Calendar Day, and it opened in 2016 right after graduating from Parsons - The New School’s MFA. Her second solo show opened last year; titled ‘Heads and Tails’ as a reference to what she considers the in-between state in which her work lives.
“Art, for me, is a space of possibility. The kind of imagery I create exists in a space of in-between, where there are objects that seem recognizable, but they are not always easy to pin down. When you throw a coin into the air and it hasn’t yet revealed if it’s going to be heads or tails, there’s all these possibilities in between, all these worlds available. It’s about the idea that it doesn’t have to be one or the other; it doesn’t have to have a definition.”
.
Throughout today, we invite you to discover her work in our feed and our stories.

Artist’s statement:
My work revolves around the deconstruction and construction of structures. Order and its reason makes itself felt in that which is manifested as a mark of identity, as a limit. One embraces as one’s own what has been learned but there are always thresholds that invite us to disruption, to evolution as the aim of everything created.
For my second show at Praxis NY, I looked to the color gold, symbol of spiritual light, life, and rebirth, and of holy, healing and purifying fire. On the basis of that symbology, I used gold in my work to produce a rupture in the color spectrum and in color as technique.
Initially, I did not alter the morphology that I have been working with: spatial structures that invite recognition of that which sustains us as well as a possible new order closer to our own frequency through the illumination of gold.
In a second instance, I included the circle, symbol of eternity, spiritual completeness and its manifestation in chaos and order. The circle opens us up to heed the transcendental beyond what is learned. The moment we listen to ourselves.
I closed the process by including more complex organic forms tied to words and language, the core of our bonds. It is what stifles our fantasy of expressing everything, totality, and what incites us to analyze our reaction to what seems different.
Forsaking God, Finding Oneself is an invitation into the vast and deep space of ourselves.
