Installed | Justin Beachler at Dolphin

The artcore journal series Installed are posts for the artcore (b)log that include written information provided by the institution, gallery, or artist’s website along with a selection of images taken by an artcore correspondent. The initiative is to provide readers with the photographer’s unique perspective of exhibitions, performances, and/or events in situ. The artcore (b)log is a platform for new series that are posted continuously, in addition to the biannual issues but do not necessarily reflect the current theme. If you are interested in participating as a correspondent for the Installed series on the artcore (b)log please contact us directly for more information.

Justin Beachler lives and works in Kansas City, MO.

In his statement Beachler writes; The workings of the contemporary art world be it the means of artistic influence, popular art making tactics, or mass distribution of imagery/criticism via popular publications are of interest within my work. Ideas surrounding the need to reflect upon popular artistic actions and current art world trends drive both the conceptual and methodical decisions that I make when creating art objects.

Currently I am exploring the aesthetics and philosophies of minimalism through the means of negating or obliterating information on found images. By digesting artistic styles through painting/sculpture, my work both embraces and reacts against historical modern art trends while creating simple visual abstractions. Ultimately working towards the invocation of an intriguing conceptual practice while investigating the aesthetics of the work.
