Pixan Paths // Higher Roads – A solo exhibition of contemporary frescos by Emily Weiskopf

Jenn Singer Gallery celebrates its one-year anniversary with Pixan Paths // Higher Roads, a solo exhibition of unconventional new work by Brooklyn-based artist Emily Weiskopf, nominated for the Rome Prize in 2011, and commissioned in 2013 by the New York City Department of Transit to create Unparallel Way – a public sculpture installation written about in over 30 countries and exhibited by the NYC D.O.T. in Brooklyn, NY, Bushnell Sculpture Park in Hartford, CT and at the residence of the Governor of Connecticut.

In 2014, while en route to deliver Unparallel Way to the Governor’s mansion, Emily Weiskopf was in a nearly fatal car crash involving a tractor-trailer. After major spinal surgery last year, Weiskopf experienced reduced mobility, but has only slightly adjusted her still-arduous free hand technique to create sculptural bas-relief paintings with an array of industrial materials including plaster, roofing paint, dyes, aluminum, cement, and dry oxides. Her new work is a culmination of a lifelong interest in the pathways that exemplify the multi-dimensional world and the myriad ways in which our paths weave together, building connections and a shared common experience of resonant unity.

Pixen Paths // Higher Roads was derived from the Mayan word Pixan meaning “spirit” or “soul” and explores Weiskopf’s deep fascination with spirituality, science and ancient ruins in an effort to understand the world in which every event is simultaneously psychical and physical. Inspired by a recent research expedition to the Mayan ruins and fascinated with how the hieroglyphs in the Yucatán Peninsula stand the test of time, Weiskopf created this new series of work to be seen as contemporary frescos – hand painted, etched and carved with dyes, enamel, roofing paint, and cement on aluminum and plaster. Each plaster slab is mixed with organic materials including crushed stones, agates, shells, street pebbles fragments from the artist’s personal collection from paths she’s walked since childhood.

Emily Weiskopf’s paths convey a feeling of unlimited possibilities – no beginning and no end – with bold, linear abstractions, architectural and land-like formations. Lines dominate flat planes and direct the course with references to doorways, columns, celestial lines and signs, aerial views of rivers and fields, ancient ruins, plans and roads. Weiskopf’s colorful contemporary frescos are visual testimonies of time, glimpses of familiar markings that trigger memories… cryptic, mystic, strong symbols of our separate, but connected journeys.

ABOUT THE ARTIST:

Emily Weiskopf is an interdisciplinary artist currently living and working in Brooklyn, New York. For the past ten years, Weiskopf has explored abstraction in connection to various universal pathways. While the core of her work is sculpture, painting and drawing, she has expanded her body of work to include video and public installations.

Since receiving her MFA from the Tyler School of Art and BFA from the Hartford Art School, Weiskopf’s work has been featured in Artnet, Gallerist NY, DNAinfo, the Contemporist, Art Nerd, the Hartford Current, the Brooklyn Rail and various blogs. Recently, the NY D.O.T commissioned her for her solo exhibition of Unparallel Way, a public sculpture that debuted in October of 2013 in conjunction with the exhibition Brooklyn Utopias. Unparallel Way has been published in City Embellishment, Urban Design II and has since been exhibited at the Bushnell Sculpture Park, Hartford, CT and became part of CT Governor Malloy’s Sculpture Grounds at his residence. Weiskopf was nominated for the Rome Prize in 2011 and has been awarded numerous fellowships and residencies including the Artist Pension Trust, Vermont Studio Center and the Wassiac Project. Weiskopf’s works are represented in both private and public collections. She is currently in the Final Rounds for an upcoming NYC Public Art Project and teaches at the City University of New York at Fashion Institute of Technology.

Here are some her artworks in the exhibition.

Detoxing

Last year was the year of detoxes, with more of us than ever taking part if weight loss inducing detox programs. And this year is no different, with detox programs, like the C9, once again increasing in popularity.

This year, tea cleanses are also incredibly popular. With more and more of us turning to a cup of tea for weight loss and detoxing purposes. These types of weight loss methods tend to be popular because they offer quick and affordable results. However, it’s important to understand that not all detoxes are safe.

Liposuction

A treatment that’s been popular for years, liposuction is one of the most common weight loss procedures. While fat freezings and gastric bands are also popular, none of these treatments offer such quick or affordable results.

Because liposuction is a keyhole procedure, it’s become even more popular. It comes with a low price tag, minimal risks, and great results, making it a popular weight loss treatment. However, it does still come with a recovery time of a few days and a fair amount of pain and bruising.

Laser treatment

A new alternative to liposuction, liposculpture, a treatment performed using lasers, has become popular. This is partially because it’s completely non-invasive and pain-free. And also, because it requires no time off work and gives gradual, natural-looking results.

According to liposculpture experts, this treatment breaks up the fat, allowing it to slowly be go rid of by the body. So instead of it instantly reducing your waistline, it takes a few weeks to take full effect. This makes it look like you’ve naturally lost weight naturally.

Body wraps

Last but not least, body wraps have also increased in popularity this year. This is mostly because of how affordable they are, as well as how quickly you can see results. Body wraps work by reducing your body of water weight, leading to weight loss. This can be anything from a few centimeters to a few inches, it all depends on how much water weight you’re carrying.

The downside to wraps is that the results are nearly never permanent, and last for a few days at the most. However, as a quick fix before an event or a holiday, they can be the ideal solution to slimming down quickly. It’s this that makes them so popular when it comes to weight loss.

So there you have it, the most popular weight loss treatments of 2016. All of these treatments have risen significantly in popularity this year.

Cellcell Putty: Ultimate Desk Toy TSFW (Totally Safe for Work!)

There is no denying that 2016 is surely the age of nostalgia. From fashion to film and everything in between, we just want things to be simple again. “Adulting” has its perks certainly but for the days when you wish you were still a kid, we have something for you. Introducing the first scented personal relaxation putty called Cellcell. According to the creators of Cellcell, it is anything but silly.

Cellcell is a personal relaxation tool that goes where you go. It uses sensory relaxation through tactile and olfactory stimulation to ease your stress.  Stress is the biggest inhibitor of creativity and an invitation to disease and fear.  Cellcell will provide a calm and relaxing environment to nest your emotions.  In a digital world, we are often deprived of tactile opportunities to channel our emotions. Emotions are stored in the cellular level of each being and can reside there long after an incident has occurred or a memory forgotten. Take some time each day to play with Cellcell and reset your emotional mind frame to face the world with positivity and light.

Screen Shot 2016-05-01 at 1.07.48 PM

Cellcell comes in an array of colors that are modern, sophisticated and fashion forward. Some best sellers include Cake, Piscine, Manuka and Flamingo. Each design has a certain story. Cake is an off white, icing like putty with multicolored glitter inside. With the buttercream vanilla scent, this yummy Cellcell is for ideal for relaxation and celebration. Piscine is reminiscent of first days of summer by the swimming pool with best buds. Thankfully, it doesn’t smell like chlorine and more like coconut oil and sunscreen in a Caribbean paradise. Playing with this Cellcell is a quick escape to the tropics without the sand between your toes. Manuka is a golden flow of honeysuckle blossom goodness. Just like the New Zealand honey but without the sticky mess. This Cellcell has tiny little bears inside the honey jar.

 

Playing with Cellcell is a great thinking tool and the ultimate desk toy. It is a discrete way to recharge on those long days, brainstorming sessions and helping you figure out just exactly what the client needs. Tactile stimulation, along with aromatherapy is great mood boosters without caffeine jitters.

carwash New to a job or not friends with your office mates yet? Let Cellcell be a conversation starter and when you collection grows, swap and trade with your colleagues too.

This is surely a clever take on a childhood favorite toy. With endless possibility in colors, scents and texture, Cellcell focuses on pop culture trends, fashion inspired patterns and social media driven fads. With the advent of social media exposing how lonely most people are, it’s hard to believe that a little putty in a jar can center you again.

 

But it can! Studies have shown that even 5 minutes of reflection and meditative state of mind can recharge a drained person. A midday motivation can not only elevate your mood but also resolve negative feelings with your boss and coworkers too. When you are feeling especially irritable with a case of the Mondays, try Cellcell and you may surprise yourself. And if squishy it around doesn’t help at all, you can chuck it across the room at the person making you mad.

 

Made with natural materials with no preservatives, Cellcell is happy to take your bad juju from you. Keep it safely airtight in its jar and you can use each one for up to 30 days. Once it gets dirty from your hand and thoughts, toss it out and reorder another one. Some people have favorites while others like to switch it up. My preference? The all year plan for 24 Cellcell scents (2 per month) for the best deal to see if this reimagined putty can truly improve creativity and productivity this year.
