Hello frends! I am an artist. My roots take place in St.Petersburg, which has great architecture, culture and history that influenced me once and forever. Today, in the times of technical progress, mass production and new artificial materials I search for inspiration in the foundation of the Arts - old Russian Orthodox icons, Renaissance and folk cultures. I seek out look for new shapes and images within my themes using different materials, but my favorite is glass for its plasticit... [more]

With the world reeling from recent global events that have severly impacted on our collective conscience—the barrage of scenes of manmade destruction, death, and disaster a vivid testimony of the dark side of humanity—visiting The Human Factor at Hayward Gallery was oddly cathartic.
Of course, the curators were not prophets, but in bringing together twenty-five years of sculpture through twenty-five artists they have created a perspicacious and timely exhibition that reflects on som... [more]
First of all, let me just say that White Walls/Shooting Gallery is one of my all time favorite galleries in San Francisco. I love the unfinished quality of the space… concrete floors and exposed electric outlets reek of potentiality… and typical millennial haste. There are high ceilings and different exhibits happening in different areas (White Walls shares the space with Shooting Gallery and they also have a ‘Project Space’ gallery).
When you walk in, you see some gra... [more]
“Why not set a higher value of dispersal? Instead of living just one place,and trying in vain to gather yourself together there, why not have five or six rooms dotted around Paris? I’d go an sleep in Denfert, I’d write in the Place Voltaire, I’d listen to music in the Place Clichy, I’d make love at the Poterne des Peupliers, I’d eat in the Rue de la Tombe-Issoire, I’d read by the Parc Monceau, etc.”

Art and the Environment in East-Central Europe is an editorial project born from interviews and other forms of interaction with artists and cultural producers concerned, in one way or another, with the idea and the material reality of what goes by the name of the "natural environment." In the different pieces collected within this project, the term "environment" unfolds into a broad variety of concepts and artistic practices that do not, and should not, become homogenized. A survey rather than... [more]
The path to the Lucas Samaras exhibition, Offerings from a Restless Soul, at the Metropolitan Museum proved to be a fortuitous one. It led me though the Greek and Roman Galleries, filled with remnants of classical art, works that undoubtedly inspired Samaras, a Greek-born artist who came to America in 1948.
Two works stayed with me as I made my way to the Samaras show: the marble head of a youth, attributed to the Greek sculptor Polykleitos, with its strong muscular face, aquiline nose, and locks of... [more]
Posted by Omo Misha on 8/25 | View the full blog list HEREBryan Christie's new work is a walk through a dimly lit dream. Biomorphic shapes, drenched and floating, appear more necessary than aesthetic. Yet, there is a subtle beauty about each image - haunting, unsettling and almost archaic. Perhaps you are drawn by Christie’s use of mysterious hues; or grasping at something academic, hovering just above your intelligence. Whatever it may be, your inquiry continues until you have at last unearthe... [more]
