soft and low

“I am black with love / neither boy nor nightingale / intact as a flower / I yearn without desire.”
From “Narcissus Dancing” by Pier Paolo Pasolini.

Logan T. Sibrel is an artist based in Brooklyn, NY. He makes paintings, drawings music, and zines.

The works in soft and low are of half-formed figures – groping, posing, and failing at fellatio. Focused on the performative components of intimacy, the pieces’ composition and frontality are part Caravaggio, part American middle-class family portrait.

These paintings and drawings are scattered with fragments of lyrics from ‘60s girl groups and bits of dialogue which are as misleading as they are telling. While the content in Sibrel’s work is largely [homo]sexual, he actively refuses sensuality, which is lost to self-awareness. The subjects in the pieces wish to be desirable and objectified but also face the discomfort of this being a form of dispossession.

Sister Pact – Packed

a0771758973_10

Sister Pact is excited to announce the release of their debut LP, PACKED, out now on Wiener Records. The band, an artistic collaboration between Logan Sibrel (the Firms) and Omar Afzaal (House of Bread, Language), formed in 2014 after Sibrel was asked to open for Brooklyn-based art duo B0DYH1GH. With reference points ranging from Freudian psychology to Riot Grrrl and Gen-X idealization, Sister Pact has now taken their bedroom-recorded aesthetic into a more lush realm with their first official release, Packed.

Max Steele of B0DYH1GH and This Is Fag City writes:

…They wrote these songs super intentionally and […] it’s valid, it’s beautiful, it’s strong, it’s important. It’s just what I needed. Like we need this right now, intellectual cute-boys post-shoegazers just diligently making art right. It’s so unselfconscious.

Packed is available digitally and on a limited cassette release (150) at http://www.sisterpact.bandcamp.com and at http://www.wienerrecords.org
