Interview with the Artist Kathrin Longhurst

Q: Tell us about your art and what inspired you to produce imagery about futuristic, science fiction or fantasy themes.

A: My work deals mainly with issues of gender parity, women’s empowerment and propaganda. In today’s world we are in desperate need to create a different narrative of women as capable, strong and empowered. Most of Western culture and history is told from a man’s perspective and we are frequently exposed to imagery that objectifies women and portrays them as accessories. I want to change that by using the visual language and symbolism of propaganda that I was exposed to growing up in East Berlin. I use military outfits and accessories as attributes of power and agency in my paintings.

Interview with the Artist R.L. Marlett

Wasteland

Q: Tell us about your art and what inspired you to photograph a dystopian future?

A: I am a fan of the Mad Max / Post Apocalyptic / Dystopian genre. The series of images displayed here were taken at the Wasteland Weekend 2018 event in the Mojave Desert. What inspired me to shoot this event is the resourcefulness, creativity, and originality on display. What I found, that I was not looking for, was some hidden humanity in the candids I shot.

Q: Tell us about Wasteland Weekend, is this an annual event?

A: Wasteland Weekend started as an informal gathering of fans, in the desert, of the Mad Max series of films.

Interview with the Artist Ashley Joncas

Q: Tell us about your art and what inspired you to produce imagery about futuristic, science fiction or fantasy themes.

A: Much of my art is inspired by my constant need to visually escape reality, so I use a lot of futuristic elements that don’t exist to infiltrate the images I create. I’m constantly fascinated by technology, it’s relationship with us, and how to use it in alternative ways.
