“Won’t Pray” is an exhibition by artist Elizabeth Tinglof conceived during her residency at Shoebox Projects. Beginning with an inverted abstract tree rooted in the ceiling by a system of twisted wires and reflected in fragments of mirror below, Tinglof creates relationships between a series of objects in various mediums . Through historic, symbolic and metaphoric references, she builds a construct of tension between belief and illusion, Tinglof’s work delves into the process of reevaluation and blindly accepted truths.

Tinglof creates an alchemist fusion of painting and sculpture resulting in richly layered abstract objects that function first as a deconstructive conversation and evolve to one of reconstruction, experimentation and reinvention.

Author

Kristine Schomaker is a new media and performance artist, painter and art historian living and working at the Brewery artist complex in Los Angeles. For over 14 years she has been working with various interdisciplinary art forms including online virtual worlds to explore identity and the hybridization of digital media with the physical world. Whether virtual or physical, the object-based work Kristine creates combines elements of color-based gestural abstraction, animation, pattern and design, neo-Baroque and Populence. Using installation, text, photography, mixed media, video and performance for her ongoing conceptual project My Life as an Avatar, she visualizes a narrative/dialogue with her virtual persona, Gracie Kendal. Kristine then documents her experiences on her blog. In 2012, exploring ideas of community, Kristine turned a local gallery into a modern day creation of Gertrude Stein’s salon of the 1920’s with a live mixed-reality dinner party merging the physical world with the online virtual world. Over the summer she also performed The Bald and the Beautiful in which she had her head shaved as a statement to challenge society’s standards of beauty. Currently, Kristine is working as an Artist-in-Residence through the Linden Endowment for the Arts creating an immersive virtual environment which she is planning to bring into the physical world via sculpture/public art work.
