Shahkaar - In Conversation with Sumaya Durrani  
12/1/16 Posted 2/11/16

As we flock around her right after our final MA Visual Arts First Year Juries and I request some time for an interview as directed by my professor Sir Quddus Mirza (Editor of ArtNow), there is a yes and a no in the answer that I get. The word enigmatic is a constant in all the published material that I’ve read about Sumaya Durrani in my humble quest to know a bit about her and we, the visual arts Master's students frozen in the space of her eloquence, are proof that it’s true.

New Blood Art about Sylwia Kaden  
10/19/16 Posted 10/19/16

"Pastel shades and complementary hues are brought into play with loose circular forms in the paintings and drawings of Sylwia Kaden. The work explores the dynamics of shape and colour and is certainly testament to Man Ray’s theory, that the ‘creative force’ within painting must ‘reside materially in the colour and texture of pigment’ and in the ‘possibilities of form invention and organisation’. Kaden indeed explores the relationship of forms to one another an... [more]

My Favorite Paintings at Neue Galerie, New York City  
10/14/16 Posted 10/24/16

Practically a next door neighbor to the mammoth Metropolitan Museum, Neue Galerie in New York City was a modest and exquisite museum, which specializes in early twentieth-century German and Austrian art and design, and has become much wider known due to its addition of Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I by Gustav Klimt, after a landmark judgement over its ownership, claimed by Österreichische Galerie Belvedere in Vienna, and the original owner's heir, resided then in the US. That Klimt was indee... [more]

Toronto City Hall No 6  
10/7/16 Posted 10/7/16

In 1957 an international competition was held for a design of a new city hall. A total of 520 designs were received from 42 different countries. The winner of the competition was Finnish architect Viljo Revell. In 1965 Toronto's fourth city hall opened and still serves as the home of the city's council. The 27 storey east tower and the 20 storey west tower surround the saucer shaped council chamber. The saddest part of the history of our current city hall is that Revell died of a heart attack at 5... [more]

“Guilt is not the curse of the human – the body is.”  
8/29/16 Posted 8/29/16

“Guilt is not the curse of the human – the body is.” These words, uttered in 1966, characterized a paradigm shift. These words, especially for women, formed the nucleus of the emergence and omnipotence of sin. As women came into existence, they became the synonym of sin and their bodies the essence of sin. It is not an accident that the woman’s body, rather than the man’s, was framed as sin. Forever, well, ever since forever existed, the man’s body was epitom... [more]

On the Front Lines by Jillian Russo | June 9, 2015 Since the passage of the GI Bill during World War II, thousands of veterans have studied at the Art Students League of New York. Returning World War II veterans rejuvenated the League, making it a site of experimentation and an incubator for postwar artists. The GI Bill made an art education accessible to those who might not otherwise have become engaged in the field, and the influx of students strengthened an ambitious community.... [more]

by Gregg Chadwick Gregg ChadwickSalish Sea30"x24" oil on linen 2014 Two years ago on a technicolor blue day, I stood on the deck of the Wenatchee ferry cutting through the choppy sea from Seattle to Bainbridge Island. The vessel was named for the Wenatchi people who originally lived in the shadow of the Columbia and Wenatchee Rivers in Eastern Washington State. We are riding on a ship of memory. In the Yakama language, wenatchi means "river flowing from can... [more]
