My work has been included in a contemporary figurative art show celebrating Rodin. My piece "Cluster" will be showcased next to some of Rodin's greatest works . This show and work will also coincide with ArtPrize. If you're in the Michigan area September 15-January 7 head over to Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park to see this amazing show.
The Artaxis Board of Directors and Fellowship Selection Committee is pleased to announce that Natalia Arbelaez is the Inaugural Artaxis Fellow. Ms. Arbelaez will spend two weeks at Watershed in the summer of 2016.
I'm currently working on an interactive internet art project. Interface Shrine is a shared space that allows me to act as a Medium. I wanted to create a space and a gateway that can be parallel to how churches, alters, and monuments are used to transport people and thoughts. This project also questions peoples ideas on tangibility and what can be perceived as real or imponderable.
Interface Shrine is a sacred space that you can connect to and become a part of. With the sharing of your thoughts, prayers, and intentions you can join this space. I am the medium to the shrine and the higher power, universe, collective, or to your beliefs. I will use my hands to create tangible objects that represent your intangible thoughts. Please submit to me your shrine request and in return I will create clay representations that can be perceived in the collective shrine
