New Voices: Silas Breaux

Ed. Note: our New Voices series was initiated last year by Sage Dawson in hopes of sharing work by emerging artists with our readership. She handed over the project to us, the editorial staff, and we cull the New Voices inbox for noteworthy work. If you’d like to submit your own work or recommend someone’s work for inclusion, send us an email at newvoices@printeresting.org.

This installment of New Voices features the work of Louisiana-native Silas Breaux. His most recent installation, Dwelling, consists of a collection of wooden frames enveloped in waxed relief prints. The work is on display at the LSU Museum of Art through March and is part of Prospect 3+ Notes Upriver, a regional extension of the International Biennial. According to Breaux, “the forms recall the collapsed buildings of my grandfather’s childhood home outside of Thibodaux, Louisiana, which have been reduced to little more than abstracted geometric shapes and are slowly being reclaimed by the surroundings. The wooden frames are enveloped in relief prints of wood grain, printed in white then coated in beeswax.”
