Ayesha Sultana at EXPERIMENTER > India
May 9th - June 26th
Posted 8/21/14

Published in http://www.artindiamag.com/quarter_04_03_14/index.html Acts of drawing are sometimes summed up as dirtying the paper delicately,1 but Ayesha Sultana’s drawings in Outside the field of view, her first solo at Experimenter, Kolkata, mounted from the 9th of May to the 26th of June, are anything but delicate. Sultana ‘dirties’ the paper vigorously and obsessively, while reining in her mark-marking within perfectly geometric shapes. Nine graphite drawings of various si... [more]

Rabindranath Tagore at National Gallery of Modern Art - NGMA Mumbai > India
April 19th, 2013 - July 15th, 2013
Posted 8/4/14

The total oeuvre of more than two thousand drawings and paintings were literally Rabindranath Tagore’s last harvest. Dated between 1928 to 1941, created by a man consumed, they are unlike anything else bearing his name, which would turn out to be their undoing. Disenchanted with being turned into an institute back home and a mystic world over, troubled by failing health and thoroughly shaken by the goings on in the family, the nation and the world, painting was both Tagore’s last roar an...

20140505213706-mike_kelley_aah_youth Some Closing Thoughts on the Mike Kelley Retrospective (MOCA Geffen, Los Angeles)  
by
Mike Kelley at MOCA Geffen Contemporary > Los Angeles
March 31st - July 28th
Posted 9/1/14

To borrow a thought from Deleuze and Guattari, art is not chaos, but a composition of chaos that makes possible a wide range of unpredictable new emotions and ideas. It pushes at the borders of the imagination, inviting new ways of seeing, and sharping our capacities for critical reflection. Truly powerful art may even change how we perceive our world, and re-situate our agency within it. The Mike Kelley retrospective (currently on view at LA MoCA), reminds me of a quote by filmmaker David Lyn... [more]

Caroline Jane Harris at Scream > London
7/9/14 Posted 7/9/14

Scream are proud to present the first solo exhibition by young British artist Caroline Jane Harris. The artist explores the complexities of nature through a labour-intensive paper-cutting technique. Harris is inspired by the natural world and is conscious of the strong yet subtle links between natural life forms and us. She explores the intricacy and beauty of nature, which echo human and man-made systems, by responding to visual phenomena such as geometric, linear and circular motifs found in a... [more]

20131218074639-j Jennifer Faist: Forget-Her-Nots  
by
Jennifer Faist at Ruth Bachofner Gallery > Los Angeles
January 18th - March 1st
Posted 5/21/14

by Kerry Kugelman In her most recent body of work, Jennifer Faist continues to extend her material and chromatic vocabulary into more subtle and complex areas. Hovering between painting and painted sculpture, Faist’s artwork asserts a robust physical presence while supporting delicate, light-soaked areas of color. Celebratory by dint of her trademark up-tempo, saturated palette, Faist’s latest works also have a hint of the elegiac. It is as though the transient beauty of a cut flower... [more]
