Saya Woolfalk is a New York based artist who uses science fiction and fantasy to re-imagine the world in multiple dimensions. With the multi-year projects No Place, The Empathics and ChimaTEK, Woolfalk has created the world of the Empathics, a fictional race of women who are able to alter their genetic make-up and fuse with plants. With each body of work, Woolfalk continues to build the narrative of these women’s lives, and questions the utopian possibilities of cultural hybridity. The Pollen Catchers is a continuation of ChimaTEK, in which the Empathics employ color-mixing machines to further shape shift their morphology.

“2017 promises to be an exciting year for Vanity Projects, which is partnering with Daata Editions, the British-based online art platform equally dedicated to outside-the-box experimentation. This initiative will bring a wealth of talent to both the Miami and New York venues, starting with Scott Reeder, followed by Saya Woolfalk, Ed Fornieles, Yung Jake, Jacky Connolly, Jillian Mayer, Jeremy Couillard, Rashaad Newsome and others. “A Goth Life,” a group show opening in June, cheekily brings together video that honors “our joyously soulless, self-reflective, insular, tension and angst ridden times,” just in time for the sunny summer. Key activations with art institutions will expand the project’s reach, with plans for potential events during Art Basel Miami Beach.” Text by Scott Indrisek

Vanity Projects in collaboration with Daata Editions welcomes Frieze, Vanity and Daata guests, Friday May 5, 10am-12pm for a screening of Saya Woolfalk’s work Color Mixing Machine 1-6, and complimentary nail polish manicures inspired by the artist & join Rita Pinto, David Gryn and Saya Woolfalk for drinks from 6-8pm. RSVP: contact@vanityprojectsnyc.com

Saya Woolfalk: ChimaCloud and the Pose System at Leslie Tonkonow. New works by the artist are on view through May 6th in Saya Woolfalk: ChimaCloud and the Pose System at Leslie Tonkonow Artworks + Projects, 535 West 22nd Street, New York, NY. www.tonkonow.com

The London Open 2015 Q&A with artist Jane Bustin. A FAD Magazine Interview

The London Open Whitechapel Gallery’s triennial exhibition has just opened. 48 of the most dynamic and exciting artists have been chosen from an entry of over 2100 and this online interview comes from FAD Magazine …

1. Have you always felt yourself an artist?
Probably after the first week of art school when I realised you could actually just paint all day.

2. Can you tell us more about your work and what are the main ideas you would like to express?
I make abstract formal compositions reflecting on modernism and materiality. & I take influences from 14th century frescos, 15th century Dutch painting, iconography, modernist architecture and design, French modernist literature, dance, fabrics, books, hardware stores, Japanese ceramics, neon signs, cosmetics, sweet wrappers …

My main interest is to create a resonance within the work that goes beyond its material properties.

3. How do you start the process of making work?
The start of the work is always through the choice of materials.

4. Do you consider the viewer, when making your work?
Always and never, since I am primarily the viewer.

5. Name 3 artists that have inspired your work.
Masaccio

Vermeer

Rothko

6. What defines something as a work of art?
When you need to look again and again and something stirs in the pit of your stomach.

7. How was it finding out you had been chosen as part of The London Open?
Satisfying

8. How have you found working with the Whitechapel Gallery on the exhibition?
The curators and assistants have been superb, I have never before as an Artist in a large open exhibition felt so considered, involved and appreciated.

9. What plans do you have to continue to pursue your art career in 2015?
I am looking forward to exhibiting in November at the Ingleby Gallery, Edinburgh in a show ‘Resistance and Persistence’ based on an essay by Sean Scully on Giorgio Morandi, including works from both artists.

10. Final Question – if you had £49,000 to buy art who would you invest it in?
Women Artists over the age of 49!
