Paperworks VII

November 20, 2020- January 7, 2021

Deadline to enter: October 4, 2020

 

The Call for Entry: 

The Foundry Art Centre in Saint Charles, Missouri is seeking submissions for “Paperworks VII” an paper centered exhibition focusing on how paper can be expressed in art. Last held at the Foundry in 2013, this juried exhibition is open to all artists who utilizes paper as an integral component of expression. We want to ask all artists how they push this ancient, tactile experience of making paper into making book arts, sculptures, and other forms of fine art. All two and three dimensional work will be considered for this exhibition. 

 

Juror:

Sukanya Mani is an interdisciplinary artist with a passion in science, philosophy and exploring issues of gender and femininity. She takes complex ideas from those fields, builds stories around them and presents them in a visual art form. Her studio practice involves the art of cutting and sculpting paper. Mani unapologetically embraces craft, with a keen attention to the material's inherent properties and understands the importance of light and shadow within the work. The paper sculptures are exquisitely crafted through a process of meticulous hand made cuts. By mixing science and art, observation and imagination, she hopes to find a bridge between the two, mimicking the breathtaking complexity that exists at every level of our lives, and filtering it through the intuitiveness of the artistic imagination. Mani has worked as a teaching artist and arts administrator with various arts organizations including the St. Louis Art Museum, COCA, Contemporary Museum and MO History museum. Born in India, Mani lives and works in St. Louis.

Juror:

David Potthast is an artist, designer, and educator; he observes & documents such things. He is a sculptor studied in design & computer science. He received his BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute, and an MA and MFA from Fontbonne University. He has shown locally the past few years, but has works in private collections both nationally and internationally.

 

His approach to art and design is aligned with the tenets of the Bauhaus. Mainly that work can be both intellectually controlled and emotionally expressive. His works turn the digital languages and logic in visual pattern, often reacting to materials, but always steeped in concept. Whether entertaining chaos theory, game theory, time, or even ideas from his own or other’s fictional worlds, he seeks to find meaning in the existence and persistence of objects and experiences. His works even go so far as to inhabit far ancient worlds, yet appear as functional or ritualistic devices. He creates his own fictional companies as identity studies, too; going so far as to build and publish websites for them.

 

He often works under the name dpstudiolab as an expression of his work being a bit of art and a bit of experiment. This includes documenting his works in ways that align with experimental research and study.  His works don’t just explore digital existence, but also reaction to materials such as steel, concrete, plaster, glass, found objects. The boundary between the virtual and the actual is blurred for him, but he explores both realms.

 

In the end: David Potthast/dpstudiolab makes things he sees in his imagination, even it requires stretching the laws of time and space to make it in what passes for reality these days.

ConTEXT III

Eligibility:

The Foundry Art Centre is seeking submissions for “ConTEXT III,” an all media exhibition focusing on the written word’s role in the visual arts. The power of words cannot be overstated. Contemporary society is saturated with media and this exhibition showcases how intertwined the literary and visual arts are.
