by
Naveen Kumar A, Lokesh B. H., Aishwaryan K, Mohan Kumar T. at Gallery Sumukha - Bangalore > India
May 24th - June 21st
Posted 6/4/14

The artists have constructed a ritualistic way to make viewers encounter their collective pursuit. At the origin of the circumambulation is Lokesh B H’s colourful melancholy. A sense of deprivation is narrated, busses and people traveling in these busses have colour but the airplane is just not functional; it does not have a door or window. A cat is hunting for a fish bigger than its mouth. There is no center to most of the compositions instead is a synecdoche; when the center is painted... [more]

Posted 4/19/14

Knox Martin at Janos Gat: A review of Caprichos by Edward Leffingwell Knox Martin named his new series of generously scaled, unframed drawings "Caprichos" for the moralizing, didactic, fever-dream etchings of Goya that first attracted him as a child, 67 years ago. But there is substantial whimsy to Martin's recent phantasmagoria of animal and human forms. Ranging from roughly 2 to 7 feet on a side, they are confident, loosely drawn in pen and ink, crayon and watercolor on thin sheets of paper,... [more]

by
Louise Hopkins at Mummery + Schnelle > London
March 19th - May 10th
Posted 3/26/14

In this exhibition, Louise Hopkins continues her exploration of everyday surfaces, including maps, magazine pages, and photographs. In each case, Hopkins manages to find a way to deal with each surface/object such that it becomes converted into a painting. Her works on maps are a case in point. For one work, she has painted over all the countries on the map with blue paint, matching the blue of the sea. On first seeing the work, you encounter a monochromatic painting. Closer inspection reveals t... [more]

He gifted us with the knowledge of Joan Miró, influenced by the Du... [more]
