3/31/20 Posted 3/5/09

         Hello frends! I am an artist. My roots take place in St.Petersburg, which has great architecture, culture and history that influenced me once and forever. Today, in the times of technical progress, mass production and new artificial materials I search for inspiration in the foundation of the Arts - old Russian Orthodox icons, Renaissance and folk cultures. I seek out look for new shapes and images within my themes using different materials, but my favorite is glass for its plasticit... [more]

Nobuyoshi Araki at Foam - Fotografie Museum December 19th - March 11th, 2015
Posted 12/22/14

In the film After Life (1998) by Kore-eda Hirokazu the recently deceased end up on a minimalist film set. In this purgatory they discuss and improvise with their fellow travelers until they have decided on the ultimately defining moment of their lives. They re-enact it and then pass over to whatever paradise or nothingness may be waiting for them. One by one the dead come to terms with what they’ve left behind. Except for one, who can’t decide. That guy could have been Nobuyoshi Araki.... [more]

Breaking Camp: A Conversation with Christto Sanz and Andrew Weir  
by
12/21/14 Posted 12/21/14

A while back during Berlin’s Indian summer, when the weather was more hospitable to a trio of tropics-born expats, I met up with the Doha-based artist duo Christto Sanz and Andrew Weir at a sleepy kietz café in Prenzlauer Berg. Sanz, from Puerto Rico, and Weir of South Africa, have made waves lately with their vibrant and somewhat in-your-face surreal photographs that weigh in on power structures of culture in locations like their current home Qatar. Their artwork is almost camp,... [more]

ArtSlant Presents Philippa's Page 3 Pin-Ups  
by
12/16/14 Posted 12/16/14

Selected by London-based writer Philippa Snow, ArtSlant's Page 3 Pin-Ups is an acerbic take on the topless tabloid muse. The new weekly series is inspired by Playboy’s Playmates, Page Three, and Letters To Penthouse: for anyone who’s ever muttered the phrase “fuck contemporary art” and really meant it. Today’s internet-smashing pin-up is notable for the fact she has everything the modern gentleman wants: an ass that won’t quit, one that Sir Mix-A-Lot (O.B.E.) would love.... [more]

A Photographer Captures a Dying Tradition at the Del Mar Racetrack   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Posted 12/16/14

New York based photographer Eric Chakeen (a former assistant to Ryan McGinley) shared some of his shots from his latest project, And Away They Go, which documents the life at the Del Mar racetrack—a place Chakeen visited often growing up in San Diego. Here, the photographer gives ArtSlant his personal perspective on the complex social atmosphere at one of California's most historic sports venues. The Del Mar racetrack opened in 1937. It was a huge part of Hollywood in its halcyon days. Lucille Ball, Frank Sinatra, and Bing Crosby were frequent vi... [more]

A significant moment for African American artists from the Southern states: the Souls Grown Deep Foundation, an organisation dedicated to the documentation and archiving of Outsider African American Art, has donated 57 works to New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art collection. The works speak of a period in Art History that has received little attention until now, that began during the days of slavery and subsequent segretation in the Deep South, and evolved during the Civil Rights Movement in...

The new weekly series is inspired by Playboy’s Playmates, Page Three, and Letters To Penthouse: for anyone who’s ever muttered the phrase “fuck contemporary art” and really meant it.

About three months ago, I was on the banks of the Seine wh... [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]

Invisible Politics: The Problem with the World's Tiniest Sculptures   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Posted 11/24/14

Earlier this month, London-based artist Jonty Hurwitz made headlines with his 3D-printed "nano" sculptures. Each sculpture is approximately 80 x 100 x 20 microns—so small that they can only be viewed using an electron microscope. The sculptures are an impressive, ambitious use of 3D printing technology in fine art. With help from the Weizemann Institute of Technology, Hurwitz used over 200 cameras and a groundbreaking 3D printing technique referred to on his website as “Multiphoton Li... [more]

11/24/14 Posted 11/24/14

At a recent auction by Mossgreen, (28 October 2014) in Melbourne, a 2002 painting by Mongolian artist, Xue Mo (b.1966), catalogued as "The Glance" with an estimate of AUD6000 to AUD9000, sold for AUD7320 inclusive of buyer's premium. The work was initially part of Xue Mo's inaugural exhibition in Australia, "The Virtue of Tranquil Beauty" (8 October - 30 November 2002, cat. no. 9). Unusually, for a non-Australian, Beijing-based artist, the exhibition was a sell-out, with the average price of exhibi... [more]

AFTER MY LAST OIL PAINTING I DECIDED TO REVISE MY APPROACH AS FOLLOWS :- (1) CARRY OUT SKETCH OF SUBJECT HIGHLIGHTING, USING HATCHED LINES, THE 3 TONES OF DARK/ MEDIUM/ LIGHT. ALSO THE BASE COLOURS OF AREAS SHOULD BE INDICATED SUCH AS E.G RO (RED/ORANGE). THESE WILL BE CIRCLED IF WARM OR UNCIRCLED IF GRAYED DOWN. A PHOTO REFERENCE WILL BE USED TO AID STUDIO WORK IF USEFUL. (2) TRANSFER DRAWING TO PREPARED PANEL (LIGHT VARNISHED AND WHITE ACRYLIC GESSO APPLIED). THE GESSO WILL BE FURTHER US... [more]

by

Though thee baroque monastery church, Barmherzigenkirche (Brotherhood of Compassion), in Graz, Austria, was founded by the Archduke Ferdinand and Max Ernst in 1615, the present construction was from later period - built in 1735-40, was by J. G. Stengg and it presented visitors stark contrasts between its austere though flowing architectural elements and the overstuffed, overwrought religious paintings, sculptures and altars. For the latter, it was their almost naïve sincerity and th... [more]
