ROMANOVA SVETLANA-ART  
by
3/31/20 Posted 3/5/09

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 plasticity and abi... [more]

The Puerto Banús Strip is Decadent and Depraved  
by
7/29/15 Posted 7/29/15

They call it “Marbs.” Some of them do, anyway—not the real deal money; not 'Tony' and 'Mel' Banderas-Griffiths, whose beach-front palace’s lease, quite tragically, outlived their marriage—but the ones who are there for an earthier breed of bacchanal: the drunks, the San Tropez tanners, the motor-mouthed swimsuit babes, the rutting Croyden bucks—and so on, and so forth. Breasts as buoyant as puppies; pectorals as tight as spinster's mouths: the strip on Puerto... [more]

Coming and Going: Staging Semiotics in Contemporary Performance Art   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

A young-girl enters the room, she gives a speech, she engages with the audience, she exits. Her acting double, an identically looking young-girl, enters the room after her. She performs the same speech in German with a slight variation. Both girls perform the same character—a character modeled after manga character Ann Lee. In their combined acting, they agree to share the personality of a constructed character schizophrenically. They (she) perform an idea of identity that has been crafted... [more]

Metamorphosis VI. Oil on canvas. 1986. Images courtesy Kiran Nadar Museum of Art, Delhi. Contemporary art discourse constantly refers to the male gaze as it stays trained on a female body: longing, projecting, mapping, invading. But when the male gaze turns inwards, towards its host male body, not... [more]

The Soldier as Artist: Khaled Jarrar Chisels Away at the Wall   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Posted 6/29/15

Two boys crouch on either side of the wall that separates the West Bank from Jerusalem. They are smuggling 1,000 loaves of Ka’ak Al Quds (“bread of Jerusalem”) through a hand-bored hole in the concrete. Ramallah-based artist Khaled Jarrar interviews them from behind an unsteady camera. “Pull! Pull!” urges the older boy. Dust from both the flour and the wall is seen as the younger child collects the bread on the other side in a makeshift production line. The zero-shap... [more]

Art or Not?

6/26/15 Posted 6/26/15

Art or Not? Do you ever walk into a gallery, and feel like you're missing something? Art can sometimes confuse you. But what does make something art, or not? Is it context, words, or the audience, who says what flies in the gallery? Every week, we ask our readers to stop taking the art world so seriously for a little minute and try and play a game of spot the difference. This week: which of the unusual scenes below is documents a performance exhibited at a Welsh art institute? #1 Staged in the glo... [more]

The Best of Basel's Free Events   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

It's said that there is “no free lunch,”—but what about some free art events in Basel? Yes, it's June, and it's time for Art Basel again. It may not as exotic a location as Miami or Hong Kong, but the old European continent offers a deep-rooted history and relatively compact scale of events (at least compared to its Miami mega-offshoot) in the cozy Swiss town at the corner of three nations. Audiences are increasingly interested in attending openings, museum shows, and art fairs and it... [more]
