‘Wide Awoke’- Are Female Artists Worth Collecting? with Joyce Harkin from Scotland, UK

Share

This time in our latest ‘Wide Awoke’ article, with Joyce Harkin, we speak behind the video, have a listen…

Several weeks ago, we announced our brand new ‘Women’ section within TheAppWhisperer and we kicked off with our first ‘Talking Points’ with the incredibly talented mobile artist, M. Cecilia Sao Thiago,where she visually channeled the creative argument of ‘what if I wasn’t me?’, envisaging herself as an artist whilst physically being a male, as opposed to female.Catherine Caddigan another accomplised aritst also contributed with a great ‘Talking Points’ entitled ‘What do we reveal to the camera’. We followed that up with a fabuolus insightful video fromSusan Detroy,with her perspective vis-Ã-vis the women’s movement, using her own self portraiture work and ethos. Successively we published the first in our Women’s ‘Wide Awoke’ section with Armineh Hovanesian and followingwork from  Deborah McMillion, Lynette Sheppard, Rita Colantonio and Fleur Schim.

For our ‘Wide Awoke’ section initially, we selected a challenging discussion at the Tate Museum, London. Recently, an article was published in The Guardian, by Helen Gorrill, suggesting that female artists are less likely to succeed now, than they were in the 1990s. Gorrill expressed “Today, when men’s artwork is signed, it goes up in value; conversely when work by women is signed, it goes down in value, and the addition of a woman’s signature can devalue artwork to the extent that female artists are more likely to leave their work unsigned”. And even more scathingly, “The Tate seems to align to these views by only collecting a ‘token’ proportion of work by women, who form the 74% majority of fine art graduates”, Gorrill goes on to say.

This of course, provoked much discussion here at TheAppWhisperer HQ, after all, this is one of the key elements to our new Women section, we want to drag out all these issues and more into the open.

We approached several female mobile artists and asked them this question ‘Are Female Artists Worth Collecting?’ and asked them to create a short video of their answer to our subheading of this section ‘Wide Awoke’. Today, we are incredibly proud to publish the sixth in this series by none other than female artist, Joyce Harkin, from Scotland.

We really hope you enjoy this new section and of course, please feel free to leave comments below, this is a section about Womens issues but we invite all men to view and participate in commenting too.

Instagram TAKEOVER with Mark Fearnley @mark.fearnley from London – Days 1 – 7 – As He Leaves Us…

Share

I personally asked London based mobile street photographer, Mark Fearnley to take over our Instagram account for seven days because he’s what I would describe as ‘a hardcore street photographer’. Fearnley’s street photography illustrates ideas, his deployment of the art, on the fertile ground he finds in London, represents the vibrant period that street photography is receiving here in Britain today. This body of work demonstrates a purity of vision, as he works in a typically British, understated way. He doesn’t intrude, so much as observe his subjects, operating on a peripheral borderland. His style of street photography is the polar opposite of street photographer Helen Levitt, not least that the majority of Fearnley’s work is black and white as opposed to Levitt’s pioneering colour photography. Nor is it similar to Vivian Maier’s street photography, there’s no glamorous women shopping, there’s no eye contact with his subjects. What there is, is an almost architectural view of street photography, with dynamic diagonal lines, silhouettes. puddle reflections, condensation perspectives through glass doors. Fearnley is a disrupter of street photography with complexity and range throughout his imagery running alongside a narrative. These stories translate into matter and space, they reach out and grab you, once seen, not forgotten. Huge thanks to Mark Fearnley what a week it has been, thank you!

Today, we will announce a new Instagram TakeOver, again with a very talented mobile photographer, stand by for that!

To view the others, please head over to our Instagram account @theappwhisperer.
