Susan Barnett's Mandala IV turned into circular puzzle by Pomegranate Press

Jan 27, 2024

From the Pomegranate website" "Susan Barnett’s works are created at the intersection of systemic pattern, culture, and art. Her Mandala IV painting might at first appear static, based on an underlying geometric pattern, but its overlaid shapes and color juxtaposition reveal an immersive space where new patterns emerge and the boundary between viewer and painting dissolves. “I am interested in the patterns that exist beneath the surface of our lives. These patterns act as an unconscious director,” she says, “emphasizing one aspect and hiding another.” Contemplate life’s complexities and meditate on Barnett’s mandala as you assemble this 500-piece circular puzzle."

Curated By: Thomas Feulmer & Lisa Le Feuvre

How can we attempt to understand the value systems that surround us and guide our lives?
With this question, For What It’s Worth: Value Systems in Art since 1960 brings together 80 artists from across generations and geographies to explore one of the most urgent concerns of our time: the growing challenges to value systems that have arisen out of confrontations with social, political, and cultural power structures. Grounded in the international conceptual art tendencies of the 1960s and 1970s, the exhibition builds on the strategies of this era that continue to reverberate through art and the world today.

Vincent Fasletta video interview on Glasstire

Glasstire   |   Jan 16, 2024   |   by Michael Flanagan

This interview with Vincent Falsetta was recorded in December 2021 during the filming of Breaking the Code, the Texas Independent Film Award-nominated documentary directed by Michael Flanagan about Texas artist Vernon Fisher.

While the conversation with Falsetta focused on the two artists’ decades-long relationship as colleagues teaching at the University of North Texas, Falsetta also discussed other subjects, including what initially drew him to Texas from the East Coast, and his own artistic practice.

During the making of Breaking the Code, several hours-long interviews were often required to be condensed into only a few minutes of material in the final film, leaving many fascinating stories on the cutting room floor. Falsetta’s interview is the first in what will be a series highlighting this additional material, published on Glasstire.

Vincent Falsetta Retrospective: Works from 1975 – 2023, a show highlighting over 45 years of the artist’s work, is on view at Conduit Gallery in Dallas through February 17, 2024.

Heyd Fontenot in KALTBLUT Magazine

KALTBLUT Magazine   |   Nov 14, 2023

"Fontenot deftly unmasks the inherent queerness concealed beneath the fig leaves of mythology in his thought-provoking exhibition. “When I Think about a Minotaur” invites viewers to delve into the multifaceted narratives of Greek mythology, which symbolically explore the diverse spectrum of LGBTQ+ relationships and identities. The artist’s work emboldens mythology, not as an antiquated storytelling form, but rather as a vibrant and evolving commentary on human experiences and sexualities that defy societal norms."

On view: December 6, 2023, and January 13, 2024, SomoS Arts presents When I Think about a Minotaur, a solo exhibition of paintings and drawings by American multidisciplinary artist Heyd Fontenot, in which he removes the fig leaf from mythology, exposing its inherent queerness. With inventiveness and sly wit, the maverick artist invokes the multifaceted narratives of mythology, exploring the rich tapestry of LGBTQ+ relationships and identities within its lore. Fontenot’s work delves into mythology not as an archaic or outdated form of storytelling but as a vibrant, evolving commentary on human experiences and sexualities that defy the constraints of the normative.
