  • 594 Broadway, Suite 701, New York, NY 1002

Opening Thursday, Feb 20th 6-8 pm at VillageOne Space (594 Broadway Suite701) Exhibition on view Feb 13- March 31, 2020 Altered Visions presents works by artists Amy Hill and Guido Garaycochea at VillageOne Space in SoHo. Presenting works inspired by Pop Art and Surrealism in equal measure, the artists’ work complement one another, providing a reflection of the past by presenting historical art figures who have defined the landscape of contemporary art. Amy Hill’s contemporary visions of iconic Renaissance and Flemish portraiture bring the prosaic into the present day. Presenting contemporary takes on classic artists such as Jan Van Eyck and Hans Holbein the Younger, Hill translates these venerated masters into a modern-day lexicon. Guido Garaycochea presents absurdist, cross-generational narratives framed by cultural devices such as fashion and popular music. Works such as “Andi’s Nap” allows insights into the interior of a subject we think we know well by accessing Warhol’s inner “thoughts” masked as an interior of a room. Humorous and inventive, Garaycochea returns to his reference points by extending a dialogue from notable art history moments, extending a bridge from the past to a modern day audience. Garaycochea and Hill both deftly engage with how viewers frame history through the lens of the present, invoking the spirit of great artists of the past while striking out on their own to define their artistic practices for a new generation. --- VillageOne, located 594 Broadway, Suite 701 in SoHo, is an art gallery with a co-working space designed for creative minds across communication, fashion and photography. Seeking to promote individuality and imagination along with artistic expression, VillageOne is a site for diversity, beauty and collaboration to coexist in harmony.

  • Tegucigalpa, Honduras

Article published in the newspaper El Heraldo from Tegucigalpa-Honduras on Sunday, June 2, 2019. It is a brief review of the exhibition that is being shown for the second time in that country: "Mas que mis errores" ( More than my mistakes). Is a body of work, my visual response to former inmate's interviews. Former inmates who have been deprived of their rights, were imprisoned and answered the following question to me: What is to be an inmate? Each of the participants (the audios are part of the exhibition) respond in different ways and cover a fairly large spectrum of emotions. The exhibition is currently on view.

Statement


Statement
My work questions concepts that relate to sex, gendered representation, and nudity, as well as aspects of gender-nonconformity and the societal pressures and imposition of masculinity and manhood. It also looks at how the queer body has had to heal and survive aspects of the status quo, impacted by capitalism and worldwide power dynamics. I am interested in the normalized, binary construction of gender, assigned at birth based solely on body parts. My collages deconstruct preconceived and traditional categorizations of gender, pushing the viewer to expand their minds and consider new ones.

In my current practice, by appropriating, cutting, pasting, and repainting images from popular culture, I create new narratives. The scenes in my collages showcase dialogues between fictional characters, similar to the stories generated by children when they play with doll houses. Characters perform their sexual and gendered identities for the public in a small, self-contained space resembling a theater, looking for acceptance. They all have something to say. At times, they mutter taboo ideas, gossip, and secrets. Sometimes they use dark humor to address uncomfortable issues.

A special thanks to my friend Amy Raffel, who has taken time to edit and put together my words and thoughts with love.
