Daisy Wiley

https://daisywileyart.weebly.com/

Daisy Wiley is a print media artist from Virginia, currently living and working in Ithaca, New York. Wiley graduated with a BFA in Printmaking and a BFA in Graphic Design in 2017 and have been working as a Graphic Designer since the completion of my studies. In 2020, Wiley willl switching gears and starting an MFA program in Print Media at Syracuse University.

In a conceptual sense, her work is concerned with the verging of objects, the seams of actualities-- specifically the interplay between desire and pain, the local and the universal, the conscious and unconscious, text and image, and the human and the digital. Wiley is interested in historical processes and art’s role in them as a visual ideology, in the stories we tell, the myths we build, and the psychological and political processes that drive them. Her pursuits are guided both by personal experience and political belief.

A recent project completed in 2018 focused on microwork and Amazon’s Mechanical Turk platform (microwork is a form of digital labor, where a freelance worker completes various tasks for a small sum posted by requestors online. The tasks are relatively small, thus the word micro, including jobs like identifying content in photos or answering questions for human subject research. Basically, anything an algorithm can’t do, people fill in the gaps.). Wiley became fascinated with microwork for a few reasons. One, because microwork is entirely indicative of our current historical juncture in capitalism- where labor is continually abstracted, and bureaucracy is decentralized and enacted not by larger entities but by the individual worker. And secondly, because when she was doing my research she realized that she was working on a graphic design microwork platform for a short while (in a period where Wiley was searching for a second job or some extra income). This project thus became a way for Wiley to deal with the frustrations she encountered doing that work and to provide an explanation as to how these platforms came to be. Thirdly, microwork is part of the societal trend that devalues artistic labor (considering that you can now go online and download a logo for a few bucks, or commission a portrait from artists who are continually undercutting one another). This intersection of personal experience, artistic critique, and political relevance is what Wiley always examining in her projects. She uses her work as an opportunity to self-educate, and hopefully, to arouse an alternative, questioning subjectivity in those who engage with her work.

She makes large-scale, mostly black and white watercolors depicting women in an environment of their own creation where they are free to act on their animalistic impulses without consequence.

Stephanie Martin

Stephanie Martin

I am an artist mainly working in the medium of ceramics, creating biomorphic worlds, which evoke the sense of living. I create biomorphic expressionistic forms using low fire stoneware. The forms represent new worlds that range from a cellular level to a macroscopic planetary scale. The fabricated ecosystems are a representation of my perceptions and experiences of life familiar to Earth and yet an entirely new place. As an abstract reflection of biological forms within alternating scales, my work focuses on dualities present in life and utilizes comparisons of attraction and repulsion.
