    About The Artist

    Amy Bassin

    Amy Bassin’s photographic visions are haunting, subtle, alluring, and intellectually provocative.  She works with Mark Blinkley to create text based art collaborations and videos.  Numerous excerpts from their Dream Streams art installation have been published including in the Columbia Journal of Literature and Art. Their video, Speaking In Bootongue, was recently selected for the London Experimental Film Festival.

    About The Artist

    Mark Blickley

    Mark Blickley matched quotes from history’s most tyrannical men to photographer Amy Bassin’s funereal sculptural portraits to produce Trump surrogates from Genghis Khan to Charles Mason in the exhibition “Weathered Reports: Trump Surrogate Quotes From the Underground.” Each quote (report) echoes a distinct Trumpian thought, issued forth from the weathered patinas of outdoor cemetery sculptures. Mr. Blickley and Ms. Bassin’s text based art collaboration, “Dream Streams,” was featured as an art installation at the 5th Annual NYC Poetry Festival held at Governors Island and exhibited in several galleries.
