Rob Sylvia – Process

About a couple years ago,  I was working on an artist spotlight segment for my friend and talented artist Rob Sylvia down in Oakland, California. This was to be included in  an issue of the Unilalia Zine (RIP), one of the projects that was cut short (or postponed) due to a robbery incident on July 3, 2017.  After photographing  all  the content over a series of shoots located at Redwood Regional Park, all I needed were the actual interview responses, the copy of the article and substance of the spotlight.  One of the many things that intrigued me about Rob's 2D work at the time was how being color blind influenced his approach as a visual artist.  I saved his original artist statement from 2017, shown below. The media on the left shows the process behind some of his more recent work. 

– Ellis Wilson

“The lack of color is both meant as a exaggerated example of what people believe my vision is, and literal help because I do really struggle with colors.The solid black background is both meant to highlight these features as well as to create the illusion that the faces are sitting at a window. Watching, could the have something to tell you? Would you listen if they did, even if it shattered your concept of reality? Would you be ready to recreate everything? Would you be able? What if they told you the truth, the bittersweet paradoxical truth? The most simple yet complex concept that you can grasp. Would you be willing to listen, or would you be so afraid of the answer that you try to seek “another truth”. Although the sad part of reality is that, even though there are countless paths to “the truth”, there are no other truths besides the most beautiful and disgusting truth out there. The truth that life, is all about just documenting what you experienced, to treat life like a story that you write yourself. The truth that no matter how many times you ask for a motif or a plot to write about, you will hear nothing and you will have to make your own meaning. The possibility of you being all alone, the only sentient thing, everything and everyone else being on some sort of script or track, is just as high as the possibility that an all powerful and knowing being created reality out of good. Who would believe that everything you knew was from your imagination? Would you? What if there is nothing to anything, and everything just happens for no reason? Why would the faces be glaring at you if there was nothing to them but inspiration and exaggeration?” – Rob Sylvia, 2017

TO UNILALIA – Demo

Runtime: 10:17

Ellis Wilson

All vocals were written, arranged, mixed, and recorded by Ellis Wilson, conforming to the restrictions of Dogma 19. This art work is intended to be listened to in one sitting, as one whole, uninterrupted. For too long, black and brown voices have been traditionally marginalized and excluded from the academic, scholastic, and intellectual exploration and dialogue surrounding the psychedelic experience, which is ironic considering the fact that indigenous people have always been the pioneers of this field. In our little corner of the universe, this all changes with the advent of the Unilalia Group, an art firm developed to advance a novel program of decolonization via the application of the arts. Here, “To Unilalia” represents a larger metaphor, something that becomes more clear with each successive release.

NGTVSPC

Inspired by the Japanese concept of “Ma”, Carter Wilson is producing  under a pseudonym "NGTVSPC" on his first beat tape, dancing between the presence of absence and the absence of presence on this self-titled EP. Within that moment of liminality exists a particular equilibrium, a type of joy. Finding this place is the listeners challenge.
