Welcome Patti Fields & Ray Juaire as this year’s AIR artists.

Patti & Ray will be working in Zygote’s studio this summer. Stay tuned for more details. Meanwhile save the date for their closing reception and artist talk.

Closing Reception September 26th 2-4pm   ** Artist talk 3pm **

The full run of the exhibition is September 4th through October 3rd, 2015.

Patti Fields and Ray Juaire work and live in the Cleveland area. They both attended The Cleveland Institute of Art where they met and began their collaboration over 20 years ago. Fields, a trained Metalsmith, often focuses on the smallest of details within her jewelry and sculptural work, while Juaire comes from a background in Painting, Sculpture, and Photography. Together, they create objects that utilize both their vision, interests, and skills.

They often transform a variety of media to create artwork that, at times, symbolizes their professional and personal relationship and explores issues of place and memory. Their work can be singular or done in small series that play with balance, utilizing dynamic forms, conceptual narratives, and a re-imagined history of the objects they incorporate in each of their pieces. They create new histories in the combinations of fabricated and found objects and work to create metaphors for the nucleus of human, scientific, and metaphysical relationships.

kabot-interior   Love Library: Let’s Talk About Love, Baby
Zygote Press Gallery. January 13-25, 2017.

Johnson was born and raised in Zimbabwe, but spent his youth reading whatever he could get his hands on. As fate would have it, the rural mission small library had an abundance of romance novels. At the time the project was conceived Johnson was living and teaching in Sweden, he came to the US at a time when love was not in the air. Politics du jour were focused on the tense situation in the Gaza Strip. Johnson responded strongly to how society diminished the individuals affected by the violence by referring to them as “these people.”
Thinking about our innate ability to homogenize individuals, Johnson turned to art, and the book project specifically, to root us back into experiencing love, life and humanity directly by living rather than being fed information off a computer screen.  Chido has recruited artists from all over the world to create altered books using the Harlequin Romance Novel as a template. He has traveled to various cities, which he calls “Chapters”, where a LOVE LIBRARIAN is selected, to recruit 20 loved ones to create new books for the collection that will continue the travel.

The art and ephemera at Zygote Press’s annual Off The Wall Holiday Show has all that appeal and more.William Busta will be matching prints from his (and his wife, Joan’s) own collection with works from Zygote’s archives. He will highlight new relationships between these works and reflect on notions of “creating a collection”.

  • Can Zygote provide a clean, private space for scheduling a studio visit with a curator or gallerist?
  • Like Christine, do you need a professional space to test drive and document an installation?

September 12 – October 4, 2014

Reception: September 12 – 6-8 pm

Artist Talk: September 24 – 6:30 pm

I was the kid who never left my scabs alone; I picked at them.  I’m not sure if I was attracted to self-inflicted pain, but what I do know is that I was attracted to the breaking of patterns on my skin and the mark that would be left behind.  I liked the permanency and mystery of scars.  Then there are, what I call, the unmarked scars.
