Chase Alias is Missing Something: A Perfunctory Affair

Via Flickr:
So its a new look for a new year. Ya, its a little old school and grainy. But im trying to strip it down. Get back to the young conceptual artist Ive been missing so much. So for little while the lighting might be dim the shots may be grainy but the ideas are hot and the compositions are always pure Chase. Enjoy! Happy New Year!

'In conceptual art the idea or concept is the most important aspect of the work. When an artist uses a conceptual form of art, it means that all of the planning and decisions are made beforehand and the execution is a perfunctory affair. The idea becomes a machine that makes the art. ” —Sol LeWitt

Chase Alias as Robert in Glass House: "So This is Christmas, Huh"

Via Flickr:
So this is Christmas, huh. Another year over and a new one about to begin. "What year is it anyway?" Robert thinks to himself. The last few years have all just sorts blurred themselves together in his mind. Bouncing around from house to house and state to state. Going where the cool wond Takes him. Ya dig! In one of Roberts rare moments of clarity he remembers to take his Atripla. "I hope these work this time" he says. He sure is happy with his gay doctor who understands him and his current lifestyle enough to give him the HIV drug prophylactically. Cuz in the last few night have been so unforgettable they remain a blur. With all of these guys throwing around all of these letters, T, C, G and D and no one stopping for a moment to even ask if he's poz. Let alone put one a condom. Condoms in this world are the taboo. What a word, what a christmas. Oh well, thinks robert, here's to a happy New Year.

This is a role being played by Chase Alias an actor. But for way too many young gay men out in the world, lost and alone, they play this role every day. Lets keep our wits about us when we go to blow our minds. Practice Safe Sex!

Happy and healthy New Year,
Chase Alias

Holden's Reexamination of Reality by Chase Alias :)(:

Artist Introduction

All love is self-love. All interpretation is self-interpretation. The value of "interpretation" is that through it, one might expose reality, or explain oneself. –Ai WeiWei
David S Pollack aka Chase Alias, Holden Vance III and Cubby uses all of his characters, along with some cameo appearances by his one-off characters, on a daily basis. Whether in the "Automated Animator Series, 2010" where David is Holden Vance III, a slightly flamboyant but no nonsense and well respected critic, of the ReTweet Critique (http://retweetcritique,com) or the extremely prolifice Rock Star of blogging with his ReTweet Critique. Maybe Pollack is being young, sexy, fresh, conceptual artist/rock star (bad boy) of the art world and blogosphere, Chase Alias.As in his current series' "What We Found On Craigslist, 2005 - 2011"" or "Searching for My Very Own Wagstaff Series, 2010 - 2011" On a rare occasion Mr. Pollack will revert to his most juvenile of creations. HIs first Method Character from his early "Basehouse Series, 2002 - 2007" There is no doubt David S Pollack a very prolific and extremely creative Conceptual Artist, Blogger, Currator, Show Promoter and Public Figure.
Now" Chase Alias: Conceptual Art on Google Music Series" will become his newest work of online pubilc sculpture. He presents to you his Affective Memory Captures, usually HD video screen captures taken on his Flip HD and screen captured on his MacBook Pro. Those are the only paintbrushes he uses, besides his own vessel, when creating these self-portrait masterworks of New Media Conceptual Art.
