fish + braids = fishwithbraids

fish + braids = fishwithbraids
the experience of art thrives at the top of the bell curve in a place of speculation (and not consensus), hypotheses (and not conclusions) and belief (not knowledge).
To stay at the top of the bell curve, as Buergel and Noack might say,
the best art must make us not understand,
which corresponds to a state of sustained curiosity that provokes us to change something about ourselves in an effort to understand.

Last Supper, a contemporary Urban take

Ryan Ford approaches the theme with a contemporary twist:
Wu Tang Clan has a last supper. ODB, Old Dirty Bastard, also known as the "Baby Jesus",
who did die, has a last supper, Wu Tang Clan style.
a brilliant piece, with the traditional painting technique of the masters,
oil on canvas,
is on display where Fish with Braids makes outdoor appearances,
as fridays at the CREATIVE GROVE artist & designer market, saturdays Meatpacking District, sundays on Bedford Ave x N6th street.

a special reception for saturday, 4/2 in MANHATTAN, location to be announced.

Eve painting the town

a performance art installation in various locations around NYC.
Curated by Eva Moll (Germany)
participating artists: Eva Moll "Eve", Uta Brauser "foliage from paradise" and body art, Christoph Von Loew, video and photography

Eva Moll's iconic character Eve, who after years of Eve and the Big Apple, Eve and the garden of paradise, evolved to Eve committing suicide.
The painting comes alive with this performance piece, the process of embodying the painting through body art, costumes and props, involving the attending public in each step and location.
Eva Moll is using the public space as her canvas, the performance piece as her paint.
Her own appearance accompanied by the green foliage of paradise (talking leaves, since Uta Brauser will never shut up) are leaving splashes of color in the memories of who had the opportunity to witness.
March 3rd, 3-5 pm at Armory Show Pier 94,
March 4, 4 pm at MoMa, 53rd street
5 pm at PS1, LIC
March 5, 5 pm Bedford Ave x Ltrain stop N 7th street
