Sienna Ried, Defixiones, 2014

Sienna Reid, The Defixiones, Wood panels incised with a knife. Referencing the Amanda Knox trial, she was the subject of a modern day witch hunt and cursing by Police and attention hungry media outlets. Defixiones or Curse Tablets come from Ancient Greek times. Etch a curse, bury, and just wait around for the curse to reach your enemy. These days, Reid states, the internet makes this magik real.

Sarah G. Sharpe found herself a new studio in Bushwick. Sharpe is one of many artists who had to abandon their Northside studios after a very suspicious and massive fire at a document storage facility. Now there’s room for the soccer field they’ve been trying to get built.  Sharpe has also accepted a tenured position at the University of Baltimore!

Finally had the opportunity to see Jeff Fichera’s work… also at 1717 Troutman. Very intense, very intense paintings of holographic gift bag paper, right down to the beautiful minute.

Zach Zieman (another 1717 Troutman resident), letting the pigment powder lead him. He has an interesting technique and I look forward to familiarizing myself his process.
