week I talk to the artistAngela
Conant. Angela is an
artist who lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. I became familiar with
Angela’s work recently when we were on a panel together at Boston
University. I enjoy looking at her work bc it has such a meditative
quality. Angela works fluidly across mediums, from marble sculpture
to paintings and video. Her work parodies the politics of gender
and media. Part of the reason I react so strongly to her work is
the fact that the work contains social commentary in a reflective
sense. It is the opposite of our currently over-amped media world.
From her sculptures to videos, to her interactive installation
pieces, there is a quiet strength that I read in her
this conversation we cover a lot of bases from how to manage time,
working collaboratively, starting artist spaces, exploring
unfamiliar mediums and curation.
I Like Your Work supports artists! Each week artist Erika b Hess interviews artists, gallerists, collectors, and curators to cover topics that will help you in your art practice! From inspiring interviews from the lives of artists to business practices you will walk away ready to get in the studio!
