Despite having no physical evidence linking her with the scene of the crime, Knox was... [more]

September 16, 2013 'Sex monster,' 'man-eater,' 'succubus': How one artist explores Amanda Knox and the power of words  
by
3/24/16 Posted 3/24/16

By ERIC REGULY Through paintings, photographs, film and 'curse tablets,' artist Sienna Reid explores the Italian murder case that transfixed the world Sienna Reid's whimsical apartment in Rome's ancient Monti neighbourhood has morphed into a tantalizing cultural testament to Amanda Knox, the American student who was convicted, and later acquitted, of the murder of her British roommate in Perugia, Italy. Enormous strips of white paper hang from the walls of Reid's studio. They bear the grisly or outrageous... [more]

My Friends: The Naked and The Drunk The Portraits of Sienna Reid  
by
3/24/16 Posted 3/24/16

by Alison Gates All in all, I found this show, dare I say? Fun. The last time Sienna Reid showed at Collusion Gallery, in August 1997 for her show "My Friends, Naked," I approached the show with fear. The fear turned to respect when I realized that Reid had pulled off a feat of postmodernist dexterity by using one of the oldest painting formats, the nude portrait, to convey a new late-twentieth century kind of honesty and honor. Still, despite the fact that "My Friends, Naked" made... [more]

Imagine you have a daughter. She is a good kid -- almost 20 years old, hasn't ever been in trouble. Her friends, family, teachers, acquaintances all describe her with words like sweet, funny, sporty, loyal, wouldn't hurt a fly -- all things you might find in any high-school yearbook. She is about to embark on her junior year abroad -- an adventure for which she has saved and planned -- to Perugia, Italy, where she wants to study language. After just a few weeks in the country, she is accused... [more]

Wednesday Web Artist of the Week: Leah Schrager   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
Posted 3/23/16

New York based artist Leah Schrager is known for using overt eroticism in her new media work. She uses her own sexualized image to wildly subvert the concept of the "selfie" while making a vital statement about feminism and the "self" in the digital age. Schrager first came to prominence under the pseudonym Sarah White, better known as the "Naked Therapist." This bold combination of internet-based performance art and genuine healing therapy achieved notoriety because Schrager (as Sarah White) and the p... [more]

Gregg Chadwick Artist Talk on Feb 27th 2016 - Last Week for Mystery Train at Sandra Lee Gallery and More Studio Notes from Gregg Chadwick - Winter 2016  
by
2/21/16 Posted 2/21/16

I reorganized my paints yesterday after fervent months in the studio painting the work for Mystery Train. Tubes of oil paint squeezed into empty twisted shells and stray caps marked only by a tell tale ring of color were discarded. Brushes, newly cleaned, stand at attention ready for new work. A clean glass palette now sits on top of a used stack of brightly daubed surfaces. Painting trains seems to bring daily reminders of change, of process, of journeys. When a train or plane turns around for i... [more]

My Favorite Sculptures at Musei Civici degli Eremitani, Padova (Padua)  
by
2/19/16 Posted 4/8/16

Musei Civici degli Eremitani, (Museo Archeologico e del Museo d'Arte Medievale e Moderna) in the ancient Italian city Padua impressed me, especially many artifacts from their Archaeological Department. I was most taken by small a bronze sculpture of a winged foot for its elegant shape in an assertive yet delicate style and the absence of the rest of the body made this piece more intriguing and unforgettable. My second favorite was a stone sculpture of a squatting bird-woman. Comparing the he sleek foot above, this one looked quite primitive, with its... [more]

Posted 2/16/16

Found objects have always been secret allies for visual artists. They are stumbled upon and acquired, magpie-like, because of a private vision of “intrinsic interest,” to be teased out and made concrete later. Found photographs, too, have long since found their place inside artists’ private wunderkammern. Following the Box, an exhibition of a particularly curious origin now on view at the Indian Museum, Kolkata, brings the aesthetic power of found photographs front and center. http:/... [more]
