Posted 4/28/16

7 mei begint de groepstentoonstelling Gardening in Flatland Gallery. Sanja Marušić is de jongste kunstenaar van het gezelschap. Marian Cousijn schreef een introductie op haar werk en zoomt in op haar laatste serie, Figures under the Sun. Soms, wanneer ik door een onbekende omgeving reis en het landschap in me op neem, moet ik onwillekeurig denken aan het werk van Sanja Marušić. Vooral wanneer het landschap zich kenmerkt door een weidse uitgestrektheid, heldere contrasten en een bepaalde desola... [more]

In vrijwel alle periodes en kunststromingen hebben kunstenaars zich laten inspireren door tuinen. Maar de ene tuin is de andere niet. De tentoonstelling Gardening in Flatland Gallery (7 mei-18 juni) maakt dat indringend duidelijk. De tuin is in de kunst eeuwenlang een belangrijke inspiratie geweest. Van de oudheid tot de huidige moderne tijd, en van westerse tot oosterse samenlevingen. Maar in de tentoonstelling Gardening in Flatland komt de tuin als onderwerp op de tweede plaats – of is ze soms... [more]

Glorious Pictorial Abuse  
by
10/21/14 Posted 10/21/14

Last week, the NY Post took a step into the Arts with a weird little profile on "painter, gallery owner, and entrepreneur" Ashley Longshore. Longshore paints slapdash, horrific odes to symbols of wealth of and for the wealthy, we're told. Bushesque in its naïveté, it is baffling that these works are commissioned in the first place. Longshore's painting, at right, according to the Post, will be displayed "in the farmhouse’s main entertaining space" of the couple's Michigan horse farm. The... [more]

On September 9th, a robot was released into the Gulf of Mexico, set adrift in the Gulf Stream. Off the southern tip of Portugal its transatlantic counterpart awaits sendoff into the strong Canary Current this week. Once offshore, these passive robots—floating spheres one-meter in diameter with sensors submerged below sea level—will be left on their own, without human intervention. Their mission: to unite in the middle of the Atlantic, carried only by currents and the forces of natu... [more]
