Artist Network Program
THE RVCA ARTIST NETWORK PROGRAM, COMMONLY REFERRED TO AS THE ANP, IS AN ONGOING PROGRAM WHICH AIMS TO SHOWCASE THE TALENT OF ACCOMPLISHED AS WELL AS UNKNOWN ARTISTS WHO INSPIRE OUR GENERATION AND PUSH THE BOUNDARIES OF CREATIVITY; PROVIDING SOMETHING OF SUBSTANCE AND CULTURE.
TO RVCA, AN ARTIST IS NOT SOMEONE WHO JUST PAINTS A PICTURE, OR WRITES A SONG, BUT SOMEONE WHO IS DEDICATED TO SHARING WITH THE WORLD THEIR LIFE, EMOTIONS AND SOUL THROUGH INNOVATIVE AND CREATIVE IDEAS. RVCA AND THE ANP WERE DEVELOPED TO SHAKE THE VERY FOUNDATIONS OF THE BUSINESS, BY GIVING BACK TO THE ARTISTS AND PROVIDING A VOICE FOR THEIR CREATIVE GROWTH.
RVCA presented Alex Knost's "Sweater Sculptures" at the RVCA Corner Gallery in Collingwood, Australia Saturday March 1st, 2015.
An ongoing body of work "Sweater Sculptures" will contain an eventual 22 time sensitive photographed installations. Photographs are mounted on aluminium, remaining completely archival. These are the first four sculptures to be 'photogenically cauterized'. This body of work congeals elements of 'Exo Allegory'. 'Exo' meaning outer or external and 'Allegory' the metaphor for hidden meaning conveyed through symbolic figures, being actions, imagery or events... In this case the outer that exhibits interim unknown in society or any in pop culture & human nature.
