Osborn goes autobiographically nude  
by
1/5/15 Posted 1/5/15

Osborn goes autobiographically nude Now that the Christmas crackers have all been silenced and the sound of Old Lang Syne has faded away, it’s them lazy January days again. Time to spice up the New Year and enjoy the arts. Like Judith Osborns exhibition Everybody is Nobody. By Marc G. Baker Judith Osborn may be labeled fashion designer, TV-host, media-personality, socialite, party animal and what not, but there’s another side to her as well. She is an artist. And not a bad one at that; au contraire. Her exhibition of autobiogr... [more]

2015's Big 15: The Museum Shows to Look Out For This Year   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Posted 1/2/15

The position of the Art Museum has become tricky, thanks to the rise of the independent cultural producer, pop-ups and nomadic curators, and the increasing popularity of free public art. In the same way Hollywood was broken up by agents in the 50s, the institute is under siege. To be relevant to a demographic spread—with rising ticket prices and all—art centers are having to work hard within their parameters. In 2015, visitors expect more than just blockbusters with an educational fiber, s... [more]

by
12/30/14 Posted 12/30/14

One of the top 5 videoclips in 2014 at my YouTube channel is "Colors and Emotions: The other side of autism". The clip simply shows images from a workshop with autistic kids who reproduced some of my artworks from"Lacer/actions" Project (about torn and decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches, urban signs). The 2nd edition of this wonderful activity was curated by Patrizia Sapri who carried out as well as (in Anzio-Rome) an interesting exhibition ("Scratches, Cracks and Lac... [more]

Alternative Waters: a Personal View of Recent Macri Portraits by Kenneth Radu  
by
12/6/14 Posted 12/6/14

Part I People familiar with Adamo Macri’s portraits may well experience an aesthetic shock to see a picture of the artist with his eyes wide open. So many of his self-portraits depict the eyes averted, lowered, askance, or rarely looking directly at the viewer that I was taken aback by a recent picture, entitled Damo, 2013. There are a few other pictures in his Facebook oeuvre wherein the artist opens his eyes and stares out of the canvas, Self-Portrait, 2013, for example, but that is... [more]

This is my new work for “Lacer/actions” project. It’s a collage made on a table using 1.258 waste-paper pieces of torn and decomposed outdoor advertisings.

Conceptual Art Legend Stephen Kaltenbach in Conversation  
by
11/24/14 Posted 11/24/14

Chicago: In September of 2013 I sat down with the legendary Stephen Kaltenbach on the occasion of his exhibition at Bert Green Fine Art in Chicago to talk about his role in the history of conceptual art, his drastic 25-year recess from the art world, and his ideas about the nature of art. Kaltenbach’s work ranges from discrete objects, anonymous magazine ads, and mysterious time capsules to figurative sculpture, regionalist art, and shaping life narratives through various personae.

Artistic adventure fallen flat  
by
Ren Adams at New Grounds Print Workshop and Gallery October 3rd, 2014 - October 31st, 2014
Posted 11/13/14

Can graphic design ever truly be considered as a fine art form? Ren Adams has taken on that question by exploring the combination of printmaking and digital media into a collection of surreal two-dimensional images called “Alchemy of Image/The Language of Information Space.” These graphic pieces are striking aesthetically, yet leave something to be desired after initial observation. Adams blends an interest in history, science, technology, art, and basically everything about the... [more]

Lust, Lecherousness, and Love  
by
11/11/14 Posted 11/11/14

Peter Clothier's scurrilously witty new novel "The Pilgrim's Staff" explores lust, lecherousness, and love through the voices of two men from two disparate centuries. David Soames, a contemporary figurative painter living as an ex-pat in Los Angeles, receives a curious package in the mail from an English cousin. Wrapped in layers of tape and memory is the two hundred year-old journal of an English gentleman, who begins his tale with the words"I am no Rake!" "Rake" is a wonderfully antiquat... [more]

The Unsung Art Star: A Phone Call with Frank Bowling  
by
11/11/14 Posted 11/11/14

Nov. 2014: Frank Bowling is a Guyana-born, London-based abstract painter who was one of the first black artists to have a solo show in America. Even still, he’s kind of an overlooked art star. His colleagues at the Royal Academy of Art include David Hockney, and Lucian Freud was his mentor. Bowling, who is known for dreamy abstract expressionist paintings, was championed by Clement Greenberg alongside artists like Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, and Barnett Newmann. Bowling has a slic... [more]
