In Rachel Kushner’s electrifying 2013 novel The Flamethrowers, about a young woman who falls in with a fictionalized crew of post-conceptualists in 1970s New York, an artist tells the unnamed protagonist, “You don’t have to immediately become an artist… You have the luxury of time. You’re young. Young people are doing something even when they’re doing nothing. A young woman is a conduit. All she has to do is exist.”

With her exhibition “Long Lasting Chew,” on view at Whitespace’s project space whitespec through this Saturday, June 16, Atlanta-based artist CC Calloway manages to both reject and embrace this proposition.

Matt Haffner’s photographs in his Harmonic Dysfunction exhibition (at Whitespace through June 16) confront a different, less distinguishable part of the South, the spaces on the margins of cities where the architecture is determined by the function of the services provided by auto body shops, liquor stores and other unromantic enterprises that are often visually identical in cities across America.

Ashlynn Browning Interview with VoyageATL

“Ever since childhood I knew I wanted to be an artist, but my earliest plans were to be a children’s book illustrator. That changed in college when I discovered oil painting and the work of Willem de Kooning and Philip Guston, among many others. That’s when I knew I would be an abstract painter, and I never looked back. Over the years, through graduate school and beyond, my mediums have changed from printmaking (etching and monoprints), to drawing, collage and works on paper, and from using acrylic to finally, a circular journey back to oil paint. My forms have fluctuated as well, going from organic and gestural to more geometric over the years. I expect that more spontaneous mark marking likely will find its way back in at some point.”

AJC reviews Sarah Emerson’s solo exhibition, Are We the Monsters

Art Review: It’s apocalypse now in Sarah Emerson’s quietly nightmarish art

Maybe the apocalypse won’t come quickly with a mushroom cloud and an earth-shaking boom. Instead maybe it will happen slowly and incrementally, killing the weakest inhabitants of the world first, like the deer, dying in the forest, puddles of their blood pooling all around them in Atlanta artist Sarah Emerson’s drawing “Fallen Deer.”

Art Review: (Un)Sacred Geometries: Pete Schulte’s “The Lamplighter” at Whitespace

Pete Schulte’s “The Lamplighter” is a shockingly diverse exhibition that, at a casual glance, appears to be anything but. Even though it fills the three separate venues of the whitespace/whitespec/shedspace complex and includes a sound art installation, the dominant medium is graphite on paper, and the dominant style is geometric.
