Eazel Sits Down with Zhen Guo (Part I)
Earlier this month, Eazel sat down with Zhen Guo, a Chinese-born, New York-based artist who graduated from the Zhejiang Academy of Fine Arts (now the China Academy of Art) and was among the first group of art students from the Chinese mainland to begin their artistic careers in the wake of the Chinese Cultural Revolution. After becoming a teacher at the same academy where she received her formal training as an artist, Zhen would eventually emigrate to the United States with her first husband to reestablish her career in New York City and rediscover her identity as an artist producing work influenced as much by Western pop culture and postmodern narratives as by her Chinese heritage and training in the meticulous craft of pre-revolutionary Chinese traditional arts.
Editor's Letter #3 (March, 2018)
From Bone to Spaceship: Our Dignified Attitude Toward the Apocalypse
Art is a means by which we question the line between morality and shamelessness. As the artist's work explores the shameless, it affords us an opportunity to turn inward and question the underlying morality of such. Rather than illustrating just one side of a subject matter, art presents us with the potential for both positive and negative interpretations—as well as insight into the space between.
Immersive Studio Visit
Studio Visit #2 – Victoria Manganiello (Part I)
Last month, Eazel was invited into the studio of Victoria Manganiello, a New York-based textile artist who creates woven paintings and installations. She is known for spinning, dyeing, and weaving her own canvases using materials she creates herself from natural ingredients and found objects she happens upon in the urban environment she inhabits. Her work has been exhibited around the world, and she teaches as an adjunct professor both at New York University and at Parsons School of Design.
