Review Zoe Sheehan Saldana and Tom Moody at artMovingProjects

At artMovingProjects (166 North 12th Street), conceptual artist and prankster Zoe Sheehan Saldana demonstrates the steps it takes to create a counterfeit pack of American Spirit cigarettes, Beginning with the growing organic tobacco, through drying, shredding, and rolling cigarettes, then packing them and even creating a believable seal, she completes her art process by planting the pack of home made fags in a Brooklyn Bodega. Buyer beware.

Tom Moody’s art is his blog, which changes according to the whim of the artist and is displayed on a computer terminal in the gallery. “This is an experiment in total freedom,”
say’s the artist. While a recent visit to the gallery revealed anti-Bush sentiments and scrawlings, today’s visit exhibited a more gestalt, a pulsating horizontally striped image that recalls the work of Kenneth Noland, but was according to his blog, a remix of work by Oliver Laric.
