    Sculptor, Site-Specific Installation and Multidisciplinary Artist – Abigail De Ville

    Sculptor, Site-Specific Installation and Multidisciplinary Artist – Abigail De Ville

    Sculptor, Site-Specific Installation and Multidisciplinary Artist, Designer, Architect, Engineer, Educator and Provocateur - Abigail De Ville - calls in to The Junk and Jam Hour to catch up with Host and fellow High School of Art and Design Alumnus - Christopher Albert - to largely discuss her journey to becoming an artist who unabashedly manufactures, emotive pieces of three-dimensional work, rooted in the stirring themes of the history of racist violence, gentrification, and lost regional history.
    Her provocative, site-specific installations are purposefully sourced from objects and materials found from the streets of the surrounding areas of her exhibition sites - with the aim to highlight the stories behind such found objects, and the interconnections between our shared, messy histories.
    On topic is the inspiration she gained from her late grandmother, who inadvertently instilled in her a deep appreciation/curiosity for the stories aligned with cast aside items; our everyday fascination with the accumulation of stuff; and the irony of her work - bringing outside debris into pristine, sanitary galleries, hopefully planting the seeds of more divergent, compassionate thoughts in otherwise unaffected art-goers.
    She also talks about the processes, challenges and successes of some of her most notable, renowned work, - including Harlem River Blues, No Space Hidden (Shelter), and New Migration - an installation centered on the theme of the Great Migration of African Americans who fled north during the Jim Crow era, attracting some controversial attention.
    Despite the seeming weight of these subjects - this informative interview is terrifically fun!

    Contemporary Abstract, Expressionist Artist - Michelle Sakhai

    New York Native, Contemporary Abstract, Expressionist Artist, Healer, Educator and Author Michelle Sakhai calls in to The Junk and Jam Hour to share her fascinating story of being of Persian and Japanese heritage, being a world-traveler since childhood, her journey as a scholar in the discipline of Fine Arts, to becoming a globally-renowned artist, represented by domestic and international galleries.
    On topic is her early music studies as a Violinist, discovering her captivation with plein air painting, and evolving from painting mere landscapes, to becoming a fully-immersed, Transformative Artist.
    Michelle explains her progression from using external inspiration - to channeling a range of her own inner-emotions to create the stellar work that she does - and the significance of having the freedom to just create, by letting herself go.
    Also on topic is her incredible work as an educator, using art as a means for others to develop their own healing through traumas - for both adults and children - and discussing the need of making more art accessible for the blind and visually impaired.
