About the artist:
(from wikipedia entry)
FAILE(Pronounced "fail") is aBrooklyn-based artistic collaboration between Patrick McNeil (born 1975) and Patrick Miller (born 1976). Since its inception in 1999, FAILE has been known for a wide-ranging multimedia practice recognizable for its explorations ofdualitythrough a fragmented style ofappropriationandcollage.
While painting and printmaking remain central to their approach, over the past decade FAILE has adapted its signature mass culture-driveniconographyto an array of materials and techniques, from wooden boxes and window pallets to more traditional canvas, prints, sculptures, stencils, installation, and prayer wheels. FAILE's work is constructed from found visual imagery, and blurs the line between "high" and "low" culture, but recent exhibitions demonstrate an emphasis on audience participation, a critique of consumerism, and the incorporation of religious media, architecture, and site-specific/archival research into their work.
