At Guttenberg Arts, Habib Hajallie developed a series of large scale figurative works that explores cultural identity and conveys a sense of empowerment to often marginalized ethnic groups in the western world. Hajallie seeks to create a discourse regarding society’s perception of people to be of varying humanistic value. With the disenfranchised often being undermined by the mainstream media; which somewhat paradoxically reflects a hierarchy of status similar to colonial ideals in reference to the transatlantic slave trade.
Robert Lach’s work is based on the architecture and anatomy of nature. It is materials and process driven. The focus is on the labor of craft by experimenting and manipulating found, discarded, and recycled objects into art material. Lach usually builds in units or multiples mimicking the biology and structure of living organisms. Sculptural shapes and forms reference the design of animal homes, cellular formation, and the skeletal patterns of the natural world. It is the beauty, organization, and simplicity of nature Lach’s work replicates.
Napoles Marty continued his series entitled “”Transculturation”, which question his own displacement as a migrant within different spaces. The bodies that Napoles Marty presents in this series move with frailty and uncertainty, which is precisely one of the artists main concerns. Marty is interested in seeing how fragmented nature corrodes every space of the flesh within the composition and how simple lacerations and large cuts are dividing this bodies, little by little, until showing, how fascinating and sensual the human body becomes in its more sordid state. For Marty, it's like trying to find the beautiful within the destruction of something.
Dennis Darkeem is a visual and performance artist focused on highlighting the importance of the South Bronx community in his art. At Guttenberg Arts, Darkeem continued to develop a series of two and three- dimensional works that include recycling items found in the community and re-purposing them to create fine art. My work is firmly rooted in my Native American background and reflected are many indigenous and traditional motifs.
