Wet Dreams featuring Crystal Stokowski and Michael Persico at SPACE 1026

 

 Opening Reception Friday, October 4, 2013, 6pm-10pm

 

Wet dreams is a mixed media installation by Crystal Stokowski and Michael Persico involving quilting, screen printing, photography, video installation, woodworking and pyrography.  The show is inspired by deep sea celestial voyaging, surfing, and the mysticism surrounding the ocean. The pair of artists are great friends who share a passion for the surf. Although they both currently live in the city they take every opportunity they can to get salty, often times adventuring to find waves together.

In this show Crystal Stokowski gives her layered psychedelic twist to work that is inspired by her surf travels to Australia, New Zealand, and her part time residence in Oahu, Hawaii. She has also volunteered for the Polynesian Voyaging Society, which has influenced her work and given her a deeper appreciation for the sea, surf and sailing. Crystal currently has a show at Benna’s cafe in Philadelphia, until the 10th of October. Next she’s headed to New York for a month long residency starting October 28th at the Clocktower Gallery.

Michael Persico is a Philadelphia based photographer with a self-proclaimed obsession for surf. Although it’s difficult living in the city with his desire to be one with the waves, he wouldn’t have it any other way. The feeling of being in the ocean and surf informs his everyday life and that same feeling is meant to come across in the work.
As a hobby Michael makes hand planes which are a fine tool for any body surfer. In the show you can see his beautiful detail to these woodworks and a collaboration video the two artists bring forward.

Andrew Liang – Double Barrel

June 7th – 28th, 2013

Space 1026 is pleased to present Double Barrel by Andrew Liang.

“There are two nostrils on mostly every human being’s face.  Under normal circumstances, both nostrils in-take and out-put air.  These works are my most recent endeavor to celebrate my ability and opportunity to utilize my nostrils.  If one of them has itched, both have been picked. Double Barrel!”

Andrew Liang was born in Taichung, Taiwan and moved with his family to Dallas, Texas at age 13. Andrew moved to Baltimore, Maryland to attend the Maryland Institute College of Art where he currently works as an Exhibitions Preparator and continues his studio practice during moonlight hours. The writings and drawings of Kazuo Umezu, Junji Ito, Haruki Murakami, and Akira Toriyama have influenced him a great deal. Aside from studio pursuits, Andrew co-directs an artist run art space, the Current Gallery, with his dear friends Monique Crabb and Michael Benevento. These collective projects, as well as traveling and listening to music with his friends is the core inspiration of his art.
