Ellen Altfest Ocula Conversation Ellen Altfest

The paintings of Ellen Altfest are ethereal in their detail. Fields of minutiae come together as pulsating images; small brushstrokes of oil paint accumulate over a series of months to single out seemingly innocuous subjects, such as a hand resting atop patterned fabric (The Hand, 2011) or a deep green cactus reaching upwards from beneath a bed of...

Colomboscope 2019: Cross Currents and Dissonance Ocula Report Colomboscope 2019: Cross Currents and Dissonance 8 Feb 2019 : Nada Raza for Ocula

On the rooftop of the former Rio Hotel complex in Colombo, it was hard to ignore the high-rise buildings, still under construction, blocking all but a sliver of what used to be an open view over Slave Island, once an island on Beira Lake that housed slaves in the 19th century, and now a downtown suburb. The hotel was set alight during the...

Jeremy Everett

b. 1979, USA

Born in Colorado, USA in 1979 and based in New York, Everett is a mixed media artist whose practice encompasses video and painting. With an initial degree in Landscape Architecture, Everett traversed into the making of art by completing a MFA at the University of Toronto. Everett was exposed in the formative parts of his early career to raw space, the vibrating yet contemplative existence elicited by bare earth. He is inspired by artists exploring the relationship between land and art such as Robert Smithson and Michael Heizer.

Everett's work stems from a centre of intuition and subtly evolves beyond process and creation; neither never fully created not complete, its significance is in its evolving state between beauty and decay. The resulting work has translucent qualities; they shimmer, glean, and glisten, while encouraging a contemplative engagement that challenges how you look at yourself, and how you view your surroundings. Everett's work is hypnotic, transcendental and disturbing whilst simultaneously pervading a mesmerising quality. It does not spell out what you should see but rather opens your mind to numerous transformative possibilities.

Canvases finely layered by traces of molecular paint pigment; flashing sequential imagery of an overturned milk truck, the unctuous fluid spreading across an indistinct American highway; an immersive cubicle composed of paintings, a setting that mimics their process of creation.
