SUSAN FELDMAN AND JENNIFER GUNLOCK

Film by Eric Minh Swenson. (Los Angeles) – Los Angeles has a new experimental art space where emerging and mid-career artists have a chance to boldly go where they have never gone before. Shoebox Projects is the latest innovative idea from Kristine Schomaker, multimedia artist and the founder of Shoebox PR, LA’s fastest growing artist marketing agency. “We wanted to create a space where artists could experiment with new ideas,” said Schomaker. “As an artist myself, I know how hard it can be to create new work in the same space where you’ve always worked. Shoebox Projects is a change of place, a change of energy and, we hope, a new spirit.” With its first residency underway as of November 1st, the local contemporary art scene can look forward to bold and exciting new work coming out of this space in the Brewery Art Complex. With new projects beginning every month, there will be lots to see and talk about. Shoebox Project’s first residency is a joint project between mixed media artist Jennifer Gunlock and sculpture artist Susan Feldman. Gunlock holds an MFA from California State, Long Beach. Her work explores the relationship between object of nature and those man made. Feldman whose background is in graphic design, creates 3D structures from wood, yarn, plexiglass and other found materials. “Both of these women had often discussed somehow finding a way to bring their work together,” said Schomaker, “and now they finally have a chance to create something totally new. I can’t wait to see what they do.” For more info on Eric Minh Swenson visit his website at thuvanarts.com.
