MEGHAN VAN ALSTYNE
Her work references anatomy and its locality to sociological and psychological relationships. Love, mortality and the human condition are current threads of interest. The human body is the most intimate way communicate a message. We understand our bodies and the bodies of others. A gesture, an expression and an action can all move and shake us in a way nothing else can. Her work has been exhibited in Boston, New York and Art Basel, Miami (2007) as well as various venues in Estonia.
Meghan E. Van Alstyne Is currently represented by The Marketplace Gallery in Albany, NY. Please contact the gallery for any questions or enquiries about purchasing and commissioning original works.
Ellie Evelyn is a Brooklyn-based performance artist who yearns to understand her society's need to be loved. She strives to create work that forces viewers to question the physical and social contours of their environment. Since her 2007 graduation from Tisch School of the Arts she has traveled internationally as a flight attendant and taught art and theater at a tri-lingual day school: Ellie looks to her shifting contexts and methods of communication to create the sense of "other" in her work, thereby pushing her audience to linger in the possibility of a world outside their own.
Making performance art since 1998, Nenneng is a patriot of the United States, suffering over the political, economic and social conflicts that are shredding the seams of our social fabric.
