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]

Shahkaar - In Conversation with Sumaya Durrani  
by
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.

Discovering Abstract Expressionism  
by
6/25/16 Posted 6/25/16

The first time I heard the words “abstract expressionism” I was in New York, trying to grab another day of leave before the army shipped me overseas. At that time in 1952, while browsing through Greenwich Village, I came upon The Cedar Tavern. “That’s where the abstract expressionists raise hell,” a sophomore girl from Barnard told me. “If you’re interested in art, that’s where the action is.” Well, my interest was piqued, but time rushed in...

Genetics Determine All The Shit You Do  
by
6/24/16 Posted 6/24/16

My raw vision of humankind is presented through a series of what I call “psychoanalytical portraiture.” My paintings are generated by an intensive interrogative process where the sitter’s perception of self is re-examined and repressed emotions are unveiled. Unapologetically, my art bluntly places free will against genetic determinism. I strongly discount environmental factors as the root cause of our actions. Genetic determinism is the overriding cause for all our compulsio... [more]

Priorities

Photojournalist Kevin Carter received the Pulitzer Prize for this photograph of a famine-stricken Sudanese girl. Carter committed suicide three months after it was published. Known as the “Vulture Photo” – it vividly shows a baby girl struggling to survive while a vulture patiently waits for the inevitable. It has been said that Carter took the picture without attempting to save the child. However, Carter stated that he waited about 20 minutes, hoping the vulture would spread its wing... [more]

Masturbation  
by
6/24/16 Posted 6/24/16

In this painting, I express the whirlwind of sexual liberation I have witnessed in my life. As a kid growing up in the 1950s, I thought masturbation was strictly a guy thing and that women didn’t even think about it. Nowadays, it’s absurd to think that women do not masturbate. The solitary moment of swirling ecstasy captured here is in celebration of the genetic predisposition of self-gratification. Ironically, soon after I finished this work, a female friend criticized me for showing some... [more]

The Dumbing of America Mixed Media Collage on Wood 36" x 80" This work is about how most Americans spend all their time looking at this shit and how publicity is triumphant in providing the pretext for success. We are all members of the society of the spectacle, which is correlate with capitalist society.

Now as you look at the work, focus on the fad... [more]
