(Image: Fintan Whelan, Temptation, 2014, Mixed media on wooden panel, 40 x 50 x 1 centimeters; © Fintan Whelan) Fintan Whelan (b. 1967, Dublin) For Fintan Whelan, embracing abstraction does not mean a departure from the representational world. Instead, his painting is based on a dialectic principle that facilitates association with the world of things.

The artist Candace Hunter has taken the hoodie, the ubiquitous garb of urban youth, professional athletes and soccer moms, now turned symbol of continued racial divide after the tragic death of Trayvon Martin, and deftly mined it as metaphor through out African American history. In Ms. Hunter’s hands the hoodie stands in for the darkness of the slave ship hold, In Strange Fruit it evokes the hoods of Klansmen and others who carried out lynchings, indeed the very hoods used to cover the fac...

photo: Andreas Endermann via RP Ist das Kunst oder kann das weg? At the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, it was a janitor (or group of conspiring janitors) who offered the final critique for some sixty student artworks. Trash. Noting a long standing divide between students and janitors over art being left in the hallways, the Rheinische Post reported the custodial staff destroyed dozens of student artworks with a viciousness usually reserved for hard-to-open packaging and cheating husbands. ...

CHENNAI: From a distance, it is hard to figure out what the mess piled up on the banks of river Pamba is. The photograph is actually a surreal view of a sea of sodden dhotis abandoned by pilgrims as they end the hard trek to the Sabarimala shrine in Kerala. This pile will soon degrade into pulp and join other junk and sewage waste that flows down this once-pristine river that feeds the Periyar Tiger Reserve. This will include water bottles, the oil drained from the smashed coconut shel .. Read more... [more]

Akron, Ohio) These recent abstractions are process driven and intuitively born. They were made while reflecting on structure, organized systems, accumulation and the unpredictable human element. There is a layering up of the recent past as we rebuild, rebrand, acquire and replace. This group of works alternately expose the stratum of what lies beneath the new as w... [more]
