The 4 Artifacts are hand built cement sculptures that were made between 2008 and 2010 on a remote South Pacific Island. After searching for materials to build a UV Installation, it was apparent that a distant island wasn't the place to attempt that kind of art. Even cement was hard to get at times, but it was at least available. I had submitted to architectural projects in the past, using small plaster carvings as model, and proposed to sculpt with cement in a similar organic form. I suppose... [more]
Lage Lindell had an aesthetic that slid into an existential relationship between the artist, and audience. The images would interfere with the visitors in the room, he disliked framed paintings. Cut out shapes that he pinned to the wall. Pressed in the series figures on plexiglass, which could hang freely, and those who stayed up and watched experienced how the image figures rhythmically mingled with the people around.
Art was a part of life.
Though I had a 30 year retrospective more than 10 years ago (2004), this is my first ever blog entry. I am now over 70 and have been doing my art since age five. For my seventh birthday, I was given the wonderful gift of starting to attend an art school taught by the artist and children's book author and illustrator, Eula Long. That was 1950. In 1952 at age nine, my work was chosen for an exhibit of childrens work at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Over the intervening years I have exhi... [more]
Joseba Eskubi (born 1967) is a Spanish artist who lives and works in Bilbao, Spain
Joseba Eskubi works with soft, amorphic and organic forms in a universe of decay and his paintings appear in a surrealistic world.

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]
On the Waterfront oil, graphite on canvas 60 x 48 inches
This painting won a 2015 Blue Dot Award at an exhibition at the Phyllis Harriman Gallery in the Art Students League of New York! At the reception, someone said to me, "Your paintings don't jump out at you, but invite you in." I like that!
I know it's a good one, because I don’t remember how I did it! That’s always a good sign - it means I was “in the zone” and not thinking about what it’s going to look like. ... [more]
