Concrete to Data has Ended, in the Physical Space.

CeetoDee

 Concrete to Data has officially come to an end at the Steinberg Museum of Art, but continues online in various ways.

A huge THANK YOU to all of the participating artists, museum staff members, contributors, community members and visitors who came to support the show. Although the works have been removed from the physical space, the transition of the show now lives on virtually via this url.

We will continue to create programs and opportunities for collaboration…

Concrete to Data through the Lens of Alexandra Pospelova

Concrete to Data through the Lens of Alexandra Pospelova

I am excited to share a powerful series of Concrete to Data photographs taken by artist Alexandra Pospelova. The selected works give us a peek into the photographers process and how the space can be viewed.  We are taken through various complimentary color combinations and compositions. I asked Alexandra for a statement about shooting the exhibition and sharing her vision on the show.

Concrete To Data photographed by Alexandra Pospelova

“Unique, Moving, Powerful! Concrete to Data is a unique show because graffiti in its nature is an outdoor art form, while here, in Steinberg Museum of Art, one sees it in a totally different environment. It is moving because it makes the viewer look for hidden meanings by overwhelming, puzzling and, in some way, provocative quality. It is powerful because of its large scale spray-painted pieces that have more authority to a body viewing it in a space, as something one cannot take in with one glance. It was a pleasure to photograph such a large variety of mediums, creative ideas, and interesting stories that allowed me to penetrate deeper into seeing the essence of graffiti itself. The camera served as a great tool to discern that essence that cannot be viewed with a naked eye, but through some consideration.” 

Alexandra Pospelova is a young artist from Saint-Petersburg, Russia, living and working in New York City. In May of 2015 she will receive her B.F.A in Painting and Photography from Long Island University’s Post campus. Notably, in 2013 Alexandra attended the Firenze ArtiVisive school in Florence. In 2012 she was invited to South Korea, where she exhibited her work in four different cities. Alexandra is currently working on her senior thesis honors show that is about the role of art in the modern world. Her work is mostly acrylic on canvas or paper, and her signature work consists of abstract, simple minimalistic forms. Due perhaps to her early training in the arts, Alexandra likes experimenting with her medium of choice, eventually combining crafts with painting. It is important to her idea that she uses mixed media because it gives her work more expressiveness and precision. As to photography, in like manner, Alexandra appreciates older aesthetics, photo processes that experimented with different medium of choice by using unique techniques.
