Tyree Callahan - Chromatic Typewriter
“Washington-based painter Tyree Callahan modified a 1937 Underwood Standard typewriter, replacing the letters and keys with color pads and hued labels to create a functional “painting” device called the Chromatic Typewriter.”
Japanese artist Yasuaki Onishi’s ‘Reverse of Volume RG’ is a stunning installation that capture’s the ‘ghost’ of what is no longer there. A visual impression of what is missing.
Onishi stacked cardboard boxes in larges piles of varying heights to create the object of his impression, then plastic sheeting was draped over a scaffolding set up around the assembled boxes. With the help of an assistant, the artist dripped strands of hot black glue down from the ceiling to the sheet, letting them dry like threads in the air.
After the thousands of glue strands were dry, Onishi removed the boxes below, revealing a negative space cast of what had been there before. From beneath the tarp, the glue strands are seen as confetti of black specks across a floating, cave-like ceiling. From afar, ‘Reverse’ is a mesmerizing preservation, a kind of receipt for the work that went into the work itself.

Rainy Nights by Tiago Caetano
A bright neon stream of chaos rains down from Tiago’s stormcloud, in a pattern repeated throughout history, no matter who rules or what tragedies befall the land: the rain will continue to fall. The only difference between modern times and back then is now we can listen to invisible rain whenever we need it, instead of being at the whim of disorder.
Adam Fowler - Escaping Forward (2012-13)
These are “sculptural drawings”. Fowler first draws large, looping gestural drawings in graphite, then cuts the negative spaces out with an X-Acto knife and layers the resulting graphite “laces” to create a kind of grayscale chaos.
