Art Inter/National is a celebration of artistic expression from all over the world. It’s an exhibition that displays how the space one occupies both influences and guides the creative process. Box Heart encourages diversity in the media used to create the work, in the artists and his/her interpretation of Art Inter/National. There are no limits or boundaries, no categories or types. Box Heart is looking for expressions in art that are not only cultivated, but also created because of each artist’s place on this earth.
The artwork selected for this year’s Art Inter/National Exhibition respond visually to the Hegelian dialectic. The work aims to make visible the control modernized language and guided thought has taken over social evolution. In some cases, such as Charles Caldemeyer’s architectural encaustic paintings or Lidia Simeonova’s contemplative figurative paintings the artwork depicts man, alone in the universe, filling the vacuum left by religion with materialism. In other cases, the power of the dialectic in political issues that demand taking sides is presented. Whether viewing Cherie Tymkiw’s “Young French Muslims Riot Against Discrimination and Deprivation” or Susan Kirby’s “Signal Quilt: from the Katrina Series,” the viewer is challenged to step outside the dialectic. The artwork in this year’s Art Inter/National demonstrates the power of individual rights. Artwork like Deanna Mance’s “Ticker Tac,” Susan Constanse’s “Unreal Spaces,” or Sarah Wiseman’s “Assembled and Linked Together” seeks to uncloak the invisible dialectic of communitarian law which hides the beauty of nature’s true mechanics and aims to demolish personal conscience.
