Elizabeth Waggett releases new print ‘Where The Light Gets In’

Thursday 4th April 2019 will bring New-York-based fine artist Elizabeth Waggett to artrepublic. Join us at the gallery from 6 pm – 8 pm for champagne as she reveals the eagerly anticipated launch price of her new print, ‘Where The Light Gets In’.

Where The Light Gets In

An exceptional, internationally renowned contemporary artist, originally from Manchester – Waggett’s style is becoming quite the collectors’ favourite. Her artworks are now held in many private collections in North America, Bahrain, Europe, South Africa, and the UAE. There is no doubt that her newest piece will be snapped up quickly.

As a limited edition of 30 prints, ‘Where the light gets in’ is the latest print in Elizabeth’s longhorn series and pays homage to her hometown of Manchester. This unique edition is hand finished with real 22karat rose gold leaf and has hand finished elements such as ink and graphite on archival somerset 330 gsm cotton rage.

“It’s a celebration of my home city Manchester and my new home New York. I wanted to create a piece that symbolised my time so far living in America and particularly New York as a proud Mancunian. The two powerful creates the longhorn (America) and the bee (Manchester) felt like the perfect pairing for this piece to celebrate the confusing yet magical time living in NYC, my acceptance of it and its acceptance of me.”

The first 10 of the edition will be hand embellished by the artist with 22ct gold on the night.

Internationally recognised for choosing objects which have a strong social stigma associated with them, Waggett cleverly explores these stigmas through her monochromatic working methods, centred around meticulous and analytical mark making. Through the visually pleasing addition of shimmering gold leaf, her chosen object is transformed into something that feels new and quite beautiful. Through her artistic hand, Waggett asks the viewer to question the conversation about the stigma and if its attachment to the object really needs to be there.

Rather than being described as hyperrealist or photorealist, her artworks reflect how her unique layering style can create an impact from afar that requires closer inspection. In an interview, she states: “I suppose my work is about accuracy and whether there are such things”. Perhaps her mark making is continually addressing the accuracy of our social constructs? We’ve put the question out there, what do you think?

Close up of Where the light gets in.

We look forward to seeing you at Elizabeth Waggett’s private view from 6 pm – 8 pm at the artrepublic gallery. You can book your tickets on our Eventbrite page.

Scouted: The Philips Hue Go Is The Portable LED Smart Light That Compliments Any Room

The Philips Hue Go is both a lamp and not a lamp at the same time. It’s a portable, dimmable, programmable bowl-shaped LED smart light that integrates into the Philips Hue ecosystem and can be used basically anywhere. I use it behind my TV as an accent light, usually set to a soft dim. I’ve previously discussed my aversion to overhead lighting and the Go means that I can pick it up (if I want to) and bring it with me.

The Go works as a smart lamp in that it can connect to your Alexa through the Philips Hue Hub and then you can easily control it with your light. It can be simply synced and added to any pre-existing collection of Hue lights and switches and adds a softer glow than a traditional light bulb. But it also has the portability that makes it stand out. Bring it with you as you sit outside on your porch or even to the beach for a nighttime hang. It can last up to three hours before needing a charge, which is plenty of time to enjoy its luminosity.

Portable lighting isn’t all that new, but it is exciting. The ability to treat something that can be turned on and off with a voice command like a flashlight feels incredibly futuristic to me. The Go sets itself apart from other portable lighting option because of its smart capabilities. And while you do need the Philips Hue Hub, it’s an amazing addition to any smart lighting system.

Scientists discover that flying squirrels glow bright pink under UV light

flying squirrel glow

If you’ve ever seen a flying squirrel in the wild you know that they’re neat little critters. They’re not particularly bothersome, and aside from mastering the age-old art of raiding bird feeders they’re rather pleasant creatures. Pleasant creatures that, as it turns out, glow bright pink when hit with ultraviolet light.

In an incredibly interesting study that was born out of mere happenstance, researchers in Wisconsin discovered that the furry little fliers are imbued something that makes them glow, but they’re not entirely certain what it is.

Racist Who Cyber-Terrorized Black Student Gets Light Penalty

Sitting down with a therapist for “anti-hate training” was part of the gift-wrapped slap on the wrist that a racist internet troll was given for terrorizing a Black college student through a neo-Nazi website.

 

Evan James McCarty settled a lawsuit on Tuesday that Taylor Dumpson filed over an internet campaign to racially harass her after she became the first Black woman to serve as American University’s student government president in 2017, the Associated Press reported.

The agreement also required McCarty to apologize, do community service and publicly renounce white supremacy.

That’ll teach him, right?

“At the end of the day, our settlement should send a strong message to white supremacists and neo-Nazis all across the country that they will be held accountable for their conduct,” said Kristen Clarke, president and executive director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, which represented Dumpson.

Dumpson’s nightmare began when someone hung bananas marked with the letters “AKA,” a reference to the historically Black college sorority Alpha Kappa Alpha, from nooses on the university’s campus. The school’s president noted in a statement that the incident occurred after Dumpson, an AKA member, was sworn in as American’s student government president.

The Daily Stormer publisher Andrew Anglin, who was also a defendant in the lawsuit, directed his readers to cyberbully Dumpson, the lawsuit alleged. In an article he posted about the incident, Anglin added links to Dumpson’s Facebook page and the American University Student Government’s Twitter page.

In at least one instance, McCarty took to Twitter and posted a picture of bananas with the caption, “Ready the troops,” replying to a message that revealed Dumpson’s whereabouts. He posted that and other tweets anonymously under the pseudonym Byron de la Vandal, which Dumpson’s legal team believed was a reference to Byron De La Beckwith, the Klansman who killed civil rights leader Medgar Evers in 1963.

It’s hard to see how therapy sessions could bring about a real change in a committed white supremacist. How is a transformation possible when programs to make people—who are not ardent racists—aware of their unconscious racism seldom work?

American companies spend an estimated $ 8 billion a year on anti-bias training, according to TIME. Yet there’s clear evidence that the efforts to change bias attitudes, which are often ingrained from childhood, is no easy task. A study of 829 companies over 31 years found that diversity training had “no positive effects in the average workplace,” especially when it’s mandatory.

Dumpson said she was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder over her ordeal. The 22-year-old law school student believes the settlement “could raise awareness of issues of racial justice, while also providing for educational benefits.”

Salt Lake City Gets Green Light to Bid for Winter Olympics

Salt Lake City got the green light to bid for the Winter Olympics — most likely for 2030 — in an attempt to bring the Games back to the city that hosted in 2002 and provided the backdrop for the U.S. winter team’s ascendance into an international powerhouse.

The U.S. Olympic Committee said Friday it was selecting Utah’s capital, which stood out as a predictable, slam-dunk pick in a process that also included Denver and Reno, Nevada.

With venues still in place — some of them upgraded — from the 2002 Games, Salt Lake claims it can host again at a lower cost than other candidates, which aligns with the International Olympic Committee’s new blueprint for the Games.

It’s almost a certain bet the bid will be for 2030, though the USOC left open the possibility of other dates. There are only two bidders for 2026: from Sweden and Italy, after voters in Calgary, Alberta, rejected a proposed bid.

USOC CEO Sarah Hirshland said Denver and Salt Lake City both presented strong cases, but that the board determined Utah was the better choice due in part to the existing venues, their proximity to each other, the city’s experience hosting the games and widespread community and political support. She said it minimizes the risk.

“It is critical to ensure that we have the ability to create an incredible experience for athletes while at the same time managing sustainability and fiscal responsibility,” Hirshland said. “It was clear to us when we were there and in what they presented that Salt Lake City very much understands the practical realities of hosting a Games, but also wants and supports what they represent.”

The city’s selection set off celebration at the mayor’s office where local leaders who worked on the plan gathered. Since 2012, Utah has said it’s ready and willing to host another Olympics.

One key hurdle for Salt Lake City will be erasing memories of the bidding scandal that marred the buildup to 2002 and resulted in several IOC members losing their positions for taking bribes.

Mitt Romney was brought in to steer the games through the scandal. The newly elected U.S. Senator for Utah told The Associated Press after the announcement that a series of processes put in place by the IOC will ensure no bribery scandal happens again.

Romney said Salt Lake City should have a great chance at winning the bid from the IOC because it has shown it can host the games without losing money. Salt Lake City ended up with a surplus after the 2002 Games, money he used to help maintain venues it will use again if it’s awarded the Olympics.

“We learned how to produce the Games for the same cost as the revenue that came in,” Romney said. “We will not put a glitzy show like Sochi or Beijing, that are reported to have cost as much $ 50 billion. We will show the world that you can produce an Olympics without having the government writing the checks.”

In many parts of the United States, however, the 2002 Games in Salt Lake City are remembered not for the bribery scandal but for a different reason.

After never surpassing 13 medals at a Winter Games, the U.S. used home-turf advantage, an influx of new sports and the emotion of the recent Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks to capture 34 over three weeks in Utah.

In the aftermath, Park City and other mountain towns near Salt Lake City preserved and improved upon many of the venues, and continued hosting key international events. The freestyle world championships will be held in Park City in February.

Utah organizers say they could host the games for $ 1.35 billion, some $ 50 billion less than it cost in Russia for the 2014 Sochi Games, which are the most expensive games ever and stood out as a blaring warning signal that the IOC needed to streamline its bloated Olympic structure.

The exorbitant costs have changed the dynamic of Olympic bidding. In 2002, cities were trying to bribe IOC officials to award them the Olympics. These days, the IOC finds itself wanting for bidders.

The IOC normally awards Olympics seven years before they’re scheduled, though that calendar has been in flux because so many cities have dropped out.

Last year, the IOC handed out the 2024 and 2028 Summer Games at the same time because there were only two cities left in what began as a much bigger contest for 2024. Paris will host 2024, Los Angeles will host 2028, and if Salt Lake wins 2030, it would mark the first time since the IOC began staggering the Games two years apart, in 1994, that the same country has hosted back-to-back.

At this time, Salt Lake could be considered a favorite in a 2030 contest that hasn’t really taken shape yet.

Hirshland said the USOC has the luxury of time to refine Salt Lake City’s bid.

In fact, Salt Lake could still be a favorite for 2026 had it been allowed to go that route. Recently, voters in Calgary rejected that city’s attempt to host, leaving Stockholm and a joint bid from Milan and Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy as the only two remaining candidates. A bid from Utah was considered, but putting it in front of the Los Angeles Olympics provided too many hurdles on the marketing side.

Rob Cohen, chair of Denver’s Olympic bid committee, called it disappointing that Colorado lost out on the chance to bid but said the process prepared the city as it looks for other chances to showcase the city on the world stage.
