Gabriel J. Shuldiner

Artist's Website

The silence is the crack, and I am soothed by the cracks all around me, by that [negative] space, the glitch, the error, the page not found, the void; those seemingly accidental sounds, spaces, moments…

Black holes, evil, darkness and love… Combining elements of minimalism and punk attitude, the idea is to remix unmatchable elements, slash boundaries and create a [beautiful] tension between [opposites]… a sort of “post-postmodern, post-medium,  post-apocalyptic existential Zen meditation, at times deceptively sardonic, cynical and nihilistic…”

The distortion of context and matter; layers and layers of information seen and unseen... Beyond the conditioned habits of perception, thought and speech; beyond the din. Black as an undefined signifier, multi-coded metaphor and paradoxical koan of [absolute] nothingness…

Where the “subversive avantgarde” and “post-altermodern chic” merge; where quantum theory becomes spiritual and meanings and  classifications dissolve… falling somewhere between the minimal,  abstract, conceptual and absurd, i remain fueled by the ironic and powered by BLACK: the most mysterious, powerful and misunderstood color…
