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.

Runway Fashion shows and Fashion night out

Runway Fashion shows, "night of lights"
participating with the Jersey City Fashion week (dot com)
Sept 22, 8pm - 12pm
190 Columbus Drive

we are growing the hype about a "different" concept in clothing in Jersey City:

Mark Tauriello and Uta Brauser present their collections at
the Fish with Braids art space  runway.
Uta Brauser, Evolve Wear 4
Mark Tauriello states:  In my fashion designs and photography, I imagine that I'm making works fit for an avant-garde space age massacre. I am greatly influenced by science fiction and horror films such as Forbidden Planet and Suspiria, particularly for their foreboding atmospheres, unsettling color combinations, and stylized sets.
I think sculpturally, exploring the boundaries of space that surround the garment. I often choose solid color fabrics for color blocking and bold contrasts. In my art there is often a disconnection between the subject and the viewer, causing feelings of an intriguing uneasiness.

Uta Brauser: artists play an important role in evolution. We often are in tune with our subconscious with developments that are yet to be manifested.
Future developments after a blade runner esthetic are my vivid imaginations and projections of realities to come. I love to follow scientific predictions and developments.

Together with an eclectic bazaar of accessories designers,
hot tunes from electronic brit pop decks, hors d'oeuvres and delightable desserts
the Jersey City fashionista can find original pieces  that are not easily availble in stores.

One special night only,
$15 donation at the door
for an unforgettable art fashion celebration

Sept 22, 2012, Jersey City

fashion for the woman of tomorrow, with architectural ultra structured designs coming to life in iconic ways, as  Triangle woman.
Geometric shapes creating new proposals for an aesthetic uncommon in fashion.
The person shapes as a sculpture,  takes on an abstract form, allows a new identity
or mask.

This collection brings both wearable art as statement pieces and ready-to-wears for the
Urban Nomad, male and female. Covering both the abstract and the practical useful end of the spectrum.
Cutting edge and innovative ways for the sustainably minded fashionista.
Self conscious, individualistic, proud and creative.

The use of discarded materials as plastic bags or rubber inner tubes is an Uta Brauser favorite, and will keep taking new shapes and innovative ways how to be incorporated into
very fashionable wearables.

Street art: purpose or vandalism ?

Sept 7 - 30,2012,  Sept 7 part of Jersey City's art crawl JC Fridays
Opening reception with the artists: 
Sept 8,  7- 11 pm, saturday

In Urban environments you will stumble upon small or large signs of
communication, expression:
stickers, drawings, drips, paper graffiti, murals, mounted sculptures and installations.

Fascinating in its scope as much as in its unlicensed manifestations.
Free expression
often unwanted
or simply silly joy.

In any case  unstoppable !
