David Henry Nobody Jr. has been called the "bad boy" of Interventionist performance art, a visual artist who has earned a celebrity following for his works in diverse mediums, including installations and works with fabric and fashion. Since starting his career in the 1990s, David has inserted himself into social communities to produce his work, creating a bridge between art and life. The Brooklyn, New York based artist has recently taken his work to the social community of Instagram, a series of bizarre visual-collage selfies titled "Resemblagè".
When you hear the word "tapestry", you might think of classical, lavish pastoral images dotted with decorative designs. Erin M. Riley is an artist who brings the medium into a new Contemporary context with her insightful portrayals of modern women. Her previous solo exhibition, "Something Previous" (featured here) borrowed inspiration from the internet. In a world where we can share our every thought and most intimate moments, we tend to lose our sense of boundaries. This is a concept that continues to intrigue Riley, which she extends into her current show "Darkness Lies Ahead" at Joshua Liner Gallery in New York.
