Jenna Balfe

 

I make work to deepen my relationships to people, plants and the built environment.

 

 

 

 

Scott Armetta

 

As an artist, I am fascinated by discourse which simultaneously counters and strengthens the hegemony of art as art, versus art as non-inherently unpreoccupied with network systems; the process by which the gaze of an unfathomable present becomes interconnected with a timeless past/future. It has been suggested that this is unavoidably informed by um…Foucault or, arguably Steven King’s Cujo, with the titular character replaced by an aging, and now ironically bald, former leader of the Gremlins, Stripe, long after his glory days of fighting Gizmo are over. Dialogue. Wolverine sans the weakest of the X-Men, Li'l Picasso, Agnes Martin by way of Pre-Millennial Meowth, or Ad Reinhardt via a more mature and self-reflective Karate Kat. The question becomes who responds to whom in an identity struggle between the observed and the observer. The answer is art. You can’t spell Armetta without it!
