The GeniusDen ART SHOW contiues December 1th with sisters Ashley Milow and Tiffany Milow - talented and differing compositions. Show starts at 6:00 PM, come meet the artists, enjoy the art, refreshments and music.
ASHLEY MILOW - is a visual artist and instructor working in Dallas, TX. She received her M.F.A. In Visual Arts at Sam Fox School of Design at Washington University in St. Louis, MO. She received two BFAs at the University of North Texas, Denton in painting and printmaking. Her work has been exhibited in museums and galleries across the US and internationally in China and Mexico. Ashley currently teaches at Interlochen Center for the Arts in Michigan as well as private lessons and artist professional practices workshops at her studio in Dallas. She works in Printmaking, video, installation, sound, and photography.
ASHLEY MILOW's work investigates how images can be used to change the way we look at nature and animals and installations that work to approach our own animality.
TIFFANY MILOW- is a visual artist currently based in Denton, TX. Her work and research focuses on themes from hierarchy of man vs. nature, consumption, and identity. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2012, from the University of North Texas in Denton and is currently working toward a Master of Fine Arts in Visual Arts with a Photography Concentration and Intermedia Secondary Concentration at Texas Woman’s University. She is the recipient of numerous honors, such as the Kobler Visual Arts Award and the Joyce Elaine Grant Endowment Award at Texas Woman’s University.
TIFFANY MILOW's Contaminate series is inspired by the study of Ecotoxicology - the study of the effects of toxic chemicals on biological organisms. The work includes found images from site-specific major oil spills in oceans and waterways from around the world during the past decade. Abstract forms are created with the splashing and dripping of chemical on the imagery that deteriorates and destroys the print.
To create these experimental works, the found images are printed onto traditional light sensitive silver gelatin paper using an inkjet printer. As the paper is being exposed, various combinations of developer, water, and fix are applied to the surface.
The digital image acts as a control in the imagery as it resists the fluidity of the chemistry, mimicking the human control element in the process of obtaining oil. The chance for the photo-degradation of the resulting images signifies societies affect on the environment. In the final stage of this project, Tiffany scanned the original processed light-sensitive prints and reprinted them as digital images on Red River Polar Metallic inkjet paper. The metallic surface of the inkjet paper is much like that of the oil on the surface of water. In the rescanning of the prints, she is preserving what little is left of the original ocean image.
