New Works on Paper by FAILE from the Art on Paper Fair in Miami

by CaroPosted on

Brooklyn based artist duo FAILE create work that is constructed from found visual imagery. Featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 18, their murals, installations and fine art blur the lines between high and low culture, but recent exhibitions demonstrate an critical eye on consumerism, and the incorporation of religious media and architecture. At last week’s Art on Paper Fair in Miami, covered here, FAILE debuted a new body of work at the Allouche Gallery booth, in which the duo draws on their roots of experimenting with printmaking. Hi-Fructose was given a first hand look at both the work that was on display, as well as some pieces reserved for private showing at the booth, which combine the eye-catching, graphic style of their recent “Savage/Sacred Young Minds” exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum with more refined collage-like images. All of the pieces are hand cut and float-mounted on constructed paper stock, and several are physically ripped and rearrange visuals of symbols, logos and post-war icons in the tradition of European avant-garde. There is no word yet on whether these pieces will reappear in a larger exhibition, so for now, enjoy the series below courtesy of Allouche Gallery.
