7 DEADLY $INS (0 of 7) -T$F ARTIST STATEMENT
Pushing passed negative shit— The $tatus Faction still wants to properly describe the actual artwork we DID IN FACT create and display in Atlanta. One piece will be in consistently developing shape (by the very nature of its’ design), and one is still under a little construction, but that won’t stop T$F from showing you the 5 we completed.
It was our goal to contribute to the Living Walls Conference in form of gallery work, sculpture, street, and whatever was beyond or in the middle of these fields. Here is the artist statement T$F released at the Living Walls Conference:
Atlanta’s 2010 Living Walls Conference
Ambitious in nature, The $tatus Faction set out to assemble a complete series of work, based on the seven deadly sins. In the early 14th century the popularity of the seven deadly sins as a theme for European artists helped to ingrain them in many areas of Catholic culture. One means of such was the creation of the mnemonic “SALIGIA” based on the first letters in Latin of the seven deadly sins: superbia, avarita, luxuria, invidia, gula, ira, acedia. Over 600 years later, T$F proudly presents their wildly original interpretation of the seven deadly sins.
Limited to a one-week time frame, T$F accomplished this unsurmountable construction with relentless enethusiam and unyielding effort. Adopting diverse mediums and materials, T$F forged multiple gallery scultupres and installations, a massive formal painting on canvas, a unique addition to the BeltLine art walk, as well as a public mural. Below is a list of The $tatus Faction’s contributions to the conference.
ALTHOUGH SOME REVISIONS CAME ALONG- THIS FLYER WAS PRINTED AND DISTRIBUTED DURING THE RECEPTION.
WE ALSO PUT OUT AN ILL STICKER FOR S.A.L.I.G.I.A.
