Guest Blog #7: Art Cart NYC™ Loves Corey D'Augustine

Artist we’re into-Corey D’Augustine 
Meet Corey, a multimedia artist whose pile of fluorescent lights will be illuminating the interior of our art cart! Raised in Maine, Corey studied art history and conservation at the Institute for Fine Arts, and now teaches at Pratt University and MoMA. He has also made a name for himself exhibiting his work throughout the NYC art community and abroad. He participated in “Silicon Valley” at PS1 and “An Exchange with Sol LeWitt” at Cabinet.
We took particular interest in Corey after his recurring participation in The Parlour, a “nomadic curatorial project” founded by Ciara Gilmartin and Leslie Rosa-Stumpf in 2008. The Parlour pops up in a new home for each exhibition, so you can imagine our delight to discover Corey’s piece, Light Pile, not only in the white cube gallery space, but also on display on a rooftop garden. The site specific installation activates each space it inhabits and takes on a new identity as external factors change.
Discover how the installation evolves when the Light Pile takes up residence in the truck.
Until then, you can take a look at more of Corey’s work here.

Guest Blog #6: Art Cart NYC™ Loves Erin Wahed

Artist we’re into- Erin Wahed.

Meet Erin Wahed, the first artist to be included in the Neon Seduction Show. Though raised in Canada, Erin has been an East Village resident for a number of years. She recently graduated from New York University’s Tisch School for the Arts, where she studied photography. Erin’s future as an artist is bright, with gallery shows in Chelsea and Montreal already behind her and upcoming exhibitions in the fall. She manipulates found objects and scenes in her photography to create what she calls “hybrid subjects.” Erin’s work exemplifies the feeling of the East Village today; It synthesizes the raw, experimental aesthetic of the ’80s art scene with the chic and glamorous face of the revitalized neighborhood.

A clip from her statement reads:

Allow yourself to be confused.
Macro, line, shape and color inspire my work.
There is no subject.
I combine photographs.
I de-compose.
I adjust.
I experient.
Look differently.
Steer away from assumptions.

The enemy of photography is the convention…
The salvation of photography
comes from the experiment.
-Lázló Moholy-Nagy
