Art or Not?

7/24/15 Posted 7/24/15

Art or Not? You thought you had the art world sussed, but every once in a while it chucks you a curve ball. In short, sometimes art can seem like a joke. What if we strip away the nonsense jargon—is the artwork still an artwork? What if we attribute those words to a different image—does that make it more legit? Every week, we ask our readers to play a game of guess who, and enjoy moment of irreverance in an oh-so-serious art world... This week: which pile of goo was made by an art... [more]

Comicon North Article by Rebecca Romani It’s late on a Friday and the Studio Door Gallery on 30th is still going strong for the opening of its national Comicon-inspired show, “Strip: Caricature, Satire and the Funnies.” The caricature artist is working on a couple who looks thrilled to be getting mildly caricaturized and someone is busily adding lines to the communal canvas off in the corner. She is concentrating so hard she barely notices people looking over her shoulder. ... [more]

I have been looking for the right space and group of people to share my work with for the last 2 years. I have now found that space and am excited to share a new body of work that includes, the beginning of many new series of works. The planetary series, The Vision Quest series, the Lazer series, new miniature art books and of course some of my classics, Pixel Perfect, Angel Hearts and if time permits perhaps a new mermiad and new ballerina. The clock is ticking - Namaste. [more]

International artist Tom Estes has been invited by curator Rebecca Feiner to act as Honorary Mayor of DEN-City1. Estes describes himself as a “Sci-fi inspired Carnival Sideshow Conceptualist, combining a bare-bones formal conceptualism with an eternally adolescent, DIY comic-prank approach”. Organised with Middlesex University, DEN-City1 is part of The London Festival of Architecture, a month long celebration of architectural experimentation, thinking and practice. I’ m sure I... [more]

Art or Not?

Art or Not? "An intellect says a simple thing in a hard way, an artist says a hard thing in a simple way" Bukowski once said. The art world is full of both. Each week, we ask our readers to have some fun figuring out what is art, what is intellect, and what is just potted plants. This week: One of the images described below is the perfect artwork for a health goth's home. Can you tell which? #1 The Cuban artist's temporary installation El huerto di mi abuelita (2008) is a Proustian ouevre e... [more]

Posted 5/29/15

"As a gallerist, I am looking for work that elicits both an emotional and an intellectual response---Hendrik's works accomplish this by creating an aura of mystery. The imagery is powerful as you explore the depth of his castings and as your viewing moves around the pieces. He clearly has moved well beyond the decorative-"--Tom Riley (www.rileygalleries.com) [more]

By S. Nicole Lane Ta Prohm Trees, Gallery 2, Nancy Lu Rosenheim “I sat there, my heart beating fast, shaken by what had happened. The destruction of life and the boundless mystery of the content of softness.” -Magdalena Abakanowicz, Statements (1979-94) Knotted hair, tornadoes, log cabins, and pig sties, are (to name a few) the nouns which Nancy Lu Rosenheim applies to her work—trees of heaven, band aids, and sticks are stated as materials and the list goes on. Oddly enough, this specific dict... [more]

Art or Not? Love it or hate it, the PR machine that drives contemporary art world sometimes seems to take the piss. Is this endemic of laziness, or a stroke of genius? Can spin turn the humble hoover into a work of art? Someone thinks so, because they paid a whopping $11,801,000 for one of the vacuum cleaner artworks described below... #1 In 1990 the artist staged a series of spontaneous street interventions organized in tandem across the U.S. Prefiguring the pop-up art display, the apparently desultory rep...

I entered the small, unassuming gallery space as a bearded head popped out from the back of the room and said, “Are you here to get your MFA?” “Yes!” I replied cheerfully. Because I was. I read that I could get an MFA in just one day at the Tenderloin Institute of Art, hosted by SFAQ, and I was immediately on board. If showing up was the application process, I was already excelling with flying colors. The man introduced himself as Dean Jeremiah Jenkins, and together... [more]

Adel Gorgy's work in Issues at Arts Guild New Jersey Contemporary art and social activism often swim in the same waters. The connection crosses borders and decades, as creative individuals—in art and literature, performance and song—have given voice, sometimes the only one, to victims of turmoil and iniquities. Issues, an exhibition in which a group of contemporary artists respond to political, social, racial, gender, and economic issues facing the world in recent years opened M... [more]

A Change is Gonna Come Solo exhibition Marco Pezzotta (1985)Curated by Bogomir Doringer *** The artistic interest from Marco Pezzotta lays in examining different systems in which our identity is being either formed or changed. We stand in those systems as individuals or as part of a group. For describing and shaping these relations Marco Pezzotta uses objects that function as tools for a narrative. They appear from another space and time, floating between digital and physical. The artist creates... [more]

Art or Not?

Art or Not? Sometimes an artwork can spark outrage. An apparently harmless sculpture can cause a public riot that rages on for four decades... But after all, as the artist of the real artwork below once said: "Art isn't democratic." This week: One of the images described below is a pile of bricks. The other is an work of art. Can you tell the difference? #1 It is clear from the variety of materials employed by the artist in his sculpture and from the way in which he presents those materials... [more]
