“I’m not walking down there, there’s a body on the floor,” my friend Shai said. We were coming out of a pizza place that had a gunshot mark in the TV. “Come on, it’s fine. She’s not dead.” As we walked past the disputed human being lying face down in the middle of the stenching sidewalk, she turned on her side and smiled vaguely into the distance with her elderly, meth-lined face. No Title (There are beds), 2015, Collage and ink on paper Sickness... [more]

Pigment Liner Art.  
5/20/14 Posted 5/20/14

Some years ago I attended an exhibition that truely inspiried and helped me improve my technique in using ultra fine pigment liner pens to create detailed and realistic drawings. Even though I only draw on A4 sized paper some of my drawings have taken up to 50 hours to draw, primarily with pencil then with an eraser and three very fine pens I begin restoring and rendering the drawing to bring it to life. Even though the drawings can take a really long time to complete I find each stage of the... [more]

Posted 10/22/13

Sibylla Dumke is showing for the third time in the gallery Cruise&Callas. For some time now her work has been quite intuitive having been inspired by the fragments of nature and products of civilization. At the current solo show she installed a scenario where the opposing elements are combined together. Collected branches are tinted by Japan Ink. Consequently, her objects are captured and held together by black colour. The artist’s 'Mumifying’ has several layers of meaning which are po... [more]

FROM THE U.S. DOODLED ABSTRACTIONS by DANNY AUGUSTINE The rich paintings of Chicago based artist Danny Augustine are abstractions yet specific explorations into his personal lexicon of colors, shapes and lines.

The Critical Jokester   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
James Ulmer at Beginnings — July 3rd, 2013 - July 28th, 2013
Posted 7/23/13

Humans have a tendency to anthropomorphize the world around us—from pets in sunglasses, and cacti with bulging eyes, to building facades whose mouths swing open. We also like to draw, to represent the world on paper. These impulses are given full energy in James Ulmer’s current show, Drawings, though it is hard to tell if he has distilled once complex images into pictograms, or if he has instilled irregular shapes with the diverse personalities of a cast of characters. Seventeen de... [more]

Amina Ahmed at Seven Art Limited November 4th, 2011 - December 10th, 2011
Posted 11/14/11

At the core of artist Amina Ahmed’s practice is the basic human desire of mark making. Marks, she concedes in her artistic statement, are her way into a universe attuned to symbolic, ritualistic meaning. For this particular exhibition, ‘The Call,’ currently on at the Seven Art Limited gallery till 3rd December, Ahmed uses a variety of ways to explore the process of mark making, using mediums as varied as charcoal, ink, gum, tempera, paper, light and shadow, all attuned in ways best described as...

The last two books I’ve read, both left in my possession by houseguests, take place in multiple or alternative universes. I don’t typically read books set in magical and science-fictional worlds, so I wasn’t really accustomed to the elaborate world building of, say, China Mieville’s Perdido Street Station. After reading endless pages oozing with analogies and descriptive modifiers, I wished I could just see a picture, or better yet, a five-minute filmic rendition of the fantastic world – somethi...
