KAARI UPSON —
CASTRATION ANXIETY

Reformation

Artwork by Kaari Upson | NeueJournal Issue 1

The artistry of Kaari Upson lies in recycling, repurposing and reframing. She has an eye for the subtly peculiar, and knack for throwing a spotlight on it, imbuing what might seem unworthy of attention with uncanny weight and intrigue. That is, Upson’s art is, in some ways, as much about process as it is product — as much about her intense, sometimes obsessive, focus on a subject as it is about the subject itself. Here, for NeueJournal’s inaugural print publication, she reforms the surfaces of an empty Las Vegas house.
