When Caricature is Considered Portraiture

BY HEALOHA JOHNSTON
@ VOL 23 ON APR 10, 2015

Johnston holds a MA degree in Art History, and is completing a second MA degree in Pacific Island Studies, both from the University of Hawai‘i. Healoha’s presentation considers how caricatures often depict political events and high-profiled figures, and then remain as visual records with the potential to circulate misconceptions as truth through what is in fact a badly distorted caricature of the actual event or figure.

Fragility, Flowers and Contemporary Portraits

BY GREER TOWNSHEND
@ VOL 18 ON AUG 24, 2016

 In "Fragility, Flowers and Contemporary Portraits" from PechaKucha Night Sunshine Coast Vol. 18Greer Townshend shares her passion for and practice of drawing.  Her work is frequently underpinned by the concept of fragility, whether related to the process of memory, language or the self.

HATARAKIMONO PROJECT

BY K-NARF
@ VOL 153 ON DEC 13, 2017

"The people that I love the most are the hatarakimono..because they are the people who provide for this amazing Japan."

In HATARAKIMONO PROJECT from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 153, KNARF showcases his tape-o-graphic portrait documentary about the busy bees of Japan. Manually processing his work with packing tape (+ anything from hardware or office supply stores), KNARF applies the principles of “BRICOLAGE” to photography, a contemporary Art movement born in NYC in the early 2000’s. His works adopt a “READY MADE”, “ARTE POVERA”, “D.I.Y.” aesthetic that straddles between a recent analogue past and an extreme technological present.

When Caricature is Considered Portraiture

"[Aspects of the painting] were modified by the artist to fit a romantic and idealized version of a much contested historical event."In When Caricature is Considered Portraiture from Honolulu Vol. 23, Assistant Curator of the Arts of Hawai‘i at the Honolulu Museum of Art, Healoha Johnson considers how caricatures often depict political events and high-profile figures, and then remain as visual historical records with the potential to circulate misconceptions as truth through what is, in fact, a badly distorted caricature of the actual event or figure. Here she dissects "Hawaii's Decisive Hour", a painting by Eugene Savage, which could be said skews history by celebrating an annexation treaty between the U.S. and Hawaii that never actually passed.
