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

         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 plasticity and abi... [more]

My Favorite Paintings at Liaoning Provincial Museum, Shenyang, China  
by
8/19/16 Posted 8/26/16

The main museum in my hometown, Manchurian city Shenyang, Liaoning Provincial Museum, boasted some magnificent artifacts and Chinese paintings, due to the fact that the last imperial dynasty was originated from Manchuria, and had kept a rich trove of art treasures in Shenyang, especially during and after World War II, when Manchu elites retreated back to northeastern China. Like many cities in China, Shenyang has experienced rapid expansion in the last decade or so, resulting in the move of it... [more]

In 2009, Cheim & Read hung the provocative group show The Female Gaze: Women Look at Women, which showcased women artists taking control of their own images. In an encore presentation this summer, women artists turn their gaze this time toward men, reversing one of art’s most long-standing power structures. The Female Gaze Part II: Women Look at Men brings together work from 32 artists, all utilizing the subject of men, or the male body, as a way to confront, or even turn the tables on the Male Gaze,...

To deal with art and approaching it are the first basic steps that every artist in his research must address. To approach the various forms of artistic expression and to bring it into line for us, may often be a difficult but necessary challenge to us, when we place ourselves in front of an collective exhibition, in which different artists and their different visual languages interact, feel and live art together. The artwork reflects the individual expression of a general feeling, is influence... [more]

My Favorite Paintings at Pinacoteca Nazionale di Ferrara, Italy  
by
8/10/16 Posted 8/20/16

Pinacoteca Nazionale (National Gallery) di Ferrara, also known as Palazzo dei Diamanti, named for its rusticated façade of diamond spikes, impressed with effortless elegance of the building and its collections. The first striking piece greeted visitors was an "Assunzione di Santa Maria Maddalena" by Maestro della Maddalena Assunta. The highly stylized landscape was an idealized world, where animals, plants, and humans mingled together in harmony. The low vantage point and the r... [more]

My Favorite Paintings at Castello Estense, Ferrara, Italy  
by
8/6/16 Posted 8/10/16

The formidable and somewhat gloomy fortress, Castello Estense in Ferrara, Italy was surprisingly airy and even cheesy inside. Such as this whimsical ceiling painting, one of many, depicting carousing nude men and cherubim, who, despite in the drunken stage, allowed their stances and gestures to be regulated by some tidy order. Their pale flash tone worked really well against the elegant background of blue and pink walls and windows of a building façade, thus introduced another dimension of ord... [more]

A couple of early paintings here show how much he was in its sway, particularly ''Susanna and the Elders'' (1953), a de Kooning-esque romp of bold, energetic forms in black and white marching di...

My Favorite Sculptures at Palazzo Municipale in Ferrara, Italy  
by
8/3/16 Posted 8/6/16

During my brief day trip to Italian city Ferrara, I admired two bronze sculptures on top of the arch entrance to its Palazzo Municipale (City Hall) — Arco del Volto del cavallo (Arch of Horse Front). On the left, there was the seated statesman Duca Borso d'Este & Marchese Niccolo III d'Este and on the right, equestrian sculpture of Marchese Niccolo III d'Este. Of these two equally impressive sculptures, the more flamboyant equestrian made more immediate impressions. The overt masculinity and grandeur was reflected with his insolen... [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]

My Favorite Artworks at Duomo in Ferrara, Italy  
by
7/31/16 Posted 8/4/16

My brief excursion from Bologna to Ferrara led me to the wonderful Duomo, whose distinct façade of triple gables immediately brought me to a purified world of classicism. True to the expectation, my favorite sculpture inside was a sculpture of a bishop (and a saint?) standing in a niche with minimal decoration. The most striking feature was the resolute and clean lines of the soaring figure, reminiscent the works of the great Bernini, such as his masterpiece of "Ecstasy of S... [more]

“Paintings of Women by the Handful,” by Benjamin Sutton, L Magazine (September 29, 2010)

Knox Martin at Woodward Gallery September 15th, 2010 - November 13th, 2010
Posted 7/30/16

“Paintings of Women by the Handful,” by Benjamin Sutton, L Magazine (September 29, 2010) Since very nearly the earliest chapters of art history, women have been among artists’ two or three preferred subjects (or objects, following feminism’s reframing of that history). Two new solo exhibitions three doors from one another on Eldridge Street attest to the feminine figure’s inexhaustible appeal. For Knox Martin, the female form remains a sensual muse that he dissects and... [more]
