    Love Over Rules

    What does it mean to let love break the rules we have in our lives? That is the question built into Artsuite’s inaugural project, LOVERULES — a new large-scale installation in Raleigh’s warehouse district created by conceptual artist Hank Willis Thomas.

    WILLIAM PAUL THOMAS

    Thomas' portrait series, which gets its name from a medical term used to describe blueness of the skin caused by insufficiently oxygenated blood, began with a painting of the artist’s young nephew, Michael. Thomas painted half of Michael's face blue as a way of emphasizing his brown skin, to make his complexion part of the content and the conversation. The artist says that the underlying, more universal idea behind the half-blue portraits is the fact that we are all dealing with some kind of conflict, trauma or adversity that the people we engage with day-to-day might not know anything about.

NEW ARRIVALS{

Artsuite - Pete Sack - No Turning Back - This work is about taking that deeper look and contemplating what makes us whole. It also challenges viewers to think about all that we miss when we subscribe to the notion that the depth of the human spirit can be determined in the seconds it takes to swipe from one face to the next.

Painting | 2024


"Through multifaceted portraits, I aim to capture both the complexity and harmony that exists in our lives and the ways in which we engage with one another. Like these works of art, discovery unfolds over time. We only truly know each other when we allow ourselves to be vulnerable and invite people to examine our layers. This work is about taking that deeper look and contemplating what makes us whole. It also challenges viewers to think about all that we miss when we subscribe to the notion that the depth of the human spirit can be determined in the seconds it takes to swipe from one face to the next.
Combining features from two faces requires me to look at angles and see the subjects from multiple vantage points, and then pieces together facets to make a whole person. Viewers can clearly identify two distinct profiles, but like memories of faces that inspire the work, the images become blurred and intertwined. There is no specific point where one ends and the other begins. The work provides an opportunity for deeper connection and beg the viewer to stay awhile and stare."

ISABEL LU

Painting | 2022

 

Isabel’s vivid works document the ridiculous and consequential moments of self-exploration and finding community in the South. Trained in nutritional science and public health, Isabel looks back at ancestral knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to understand what truth and wellbeing means to them. But ultimately, Isabel finds those answers in deep self-reflection. By redefining TCM theories and practices, Isabel works through their relationship to their own body, its natural processes, and their asexuality. Isabel uses vivid colors and layered brushwork to define and redefine ourselves in the context of ancestry and environment. In many of Isabel’s paintings, they enjoy the silliness and seriousness of using food as a meaningful symbol of wellness, objectification, and ownership among queer Asian American (AA) figures from NC. The AA community in NC is, likewise, defining and redefining itself, and Isabel hopes that their work becomes part of this emerging history.
