“War must be, while we defend our lives against a destroyer who would devour all; but I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend.”
― J.R.R Tolkien
From the word in its most literal form to abstractions reflecting upon internal and interpersonal struggle, the idea of war is one that evokes a deep, emotional response within all of us. For this reason, the concept was selected as the prompt for Slashthree’s milestone twentieth exhibition; a tour de force, featuring more than 60 beautifully crafted artistic interpretations of this concept in a variety of different media. Take a good, long look through the gallery; we think you’ll agree that “WAR” is one of the collective’s strongest exhibitions to date.
We’d also like to take the opportunity to recognize the extraordinary efforts of Wojciech Magierski as the featured artist of WAR and give a warm welcome to the artists that have joined us since our last release. Parker Gibson, Amy Dowell, Sam Janssen, Lauren Ratcliff, Martín Thompson, Andrea Ristaino, Ksyu Horoshaya, and Aaron Campbell.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Slashthree is proud to present the seventh and final chapter of World Exhibition III, as it comes to a successful close headlined by illustrators Liran Szeiman, Martin De Diego Sádaba, Tarin Yuangtrakul, Karim Fakhoury Gaétan Weltzer, and photographer Benny Brand. New additions Rachel Rusk and Remi Chevalier and Lorenzo Sangiovanni showcase their first submissions to Slashthree in the 7th installment.
Over the course of five months, 50 pieces of art, photography and music were produced in this first ever exhibition format at S3. Be sure to view the exhibition as a whole if you missed one of the previous six installments. We hope everyone enjoyed the incremental updates and wonderful work created for WE III as much as we enjoyed creating it.
We are now looking forward, and eager to present new ideas in upcoming projects and exhibitions. 2013 will bring many early surprises, so keep checking in on our home page, as well as our Facebook and Twitter accounts for announcements and updates! In the meantime, make sure you're caught up on the newest works on Slashthree: “World Exhibition III”.
SlashTHREE Public Relations
Ladies and Gentlemen,
The Slashthree collective is glad to announce that it has reached a partnership with Designers Against Child Slavery, a non-profit organization that allows creatives to speak out against sex trafficking and the sexual exploitation of young children. The partnership will see Slashthree hosting its first ever live, offline art exhibition in Florida in just a few months' time. Everyone within the collective is hard at work bringing this exhibition to life, and we are all very excited about the opportunity to meet and greet with fans and other artists while lending our time and talents to this outstanding cause.
A project of such magnitude as the collaboration with Designers Against Child Slavery requires more time and effort than the typical Slashthree exhibition. As such, the collective has decided to release our latest exhibition, "World Exhibition III", incrementally. Every two weeks, we will publicly release a handful of new pieces from the exhibition - accessible via the official exhibition hub - starting from today and running for the foreseeable future. The first increment features illustrations by Tarin Yaungtrakul, Erik Schumacher, Marco Casalvieri and Yvan Fuesi, and photography by Donald Cameron and Nichlas Boysen.
Thank you for your continued support, and please enjoy the first installment of World Exhibition III!
