“2021” Eliot Markell
These two pieces are a commentary on the COVID quarantine and our collective psyche.
” Art making has remained an authentic process for me, unaffected by fashion or market ambitions. Nature provides my artistic priorities, depicted both as representational plein air, and interpretative imagery.
The assemblage process in my work is influenced by indigenous sources, and foments figurative associations rooted in a totemic anthropomorphism.”
Materials: Water-based media and tissue paper on bubble wrap, embedded in poured plaster.
Size: 25 x 21 x 1 inches
As a celebration that 2020 has ended and that a new year is here, FLATFILE has launched a new online program title, simply: “2021.”
We invited artists to participate through a rolling open call, which remains open for the entirety of this year. From these submissions, our jury panel carefully selects new works to present on FLATFILE, with new works added throughout all of 2021.
The price of each artwork is a flat $2,021,
a discounted price from the actual value of each work, offered here, exclusively.
