ROMANOVA SVETLANA-ART  
by
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]

Lucas Samaras' Offerings from a Restless Soul   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Lucas Samaras at The Metropolitan Museum of Art February 24th - September 1st
Posted 8/26/14

The path to the Lucas Samaras exhibition, Offerings from a Restless Soul, at the Metropolitan Museum proved to be a fortuitous one. It led me though the Greek and Roman Galleries, filled with remnants of classical art, works that undoubtedly inspired Samaras, a Greek-born artist who came to America in 1948. Two works stayed with me as I made my way to the Samaras show: the marble head of a youth, attributed to the Greek sculptor Polykleitos, with its strong muscular face, aquiline nose, and locks of...

Bryan Christie: This Image Tightly Held  
by
8/25/14 Posted 8/25/14

Posted by Omo Misha on 8/25 | View the full blog list HEREBryan Christie's new work is a walk through a dimly lit dream. Biomorphic shapes, drenched and floating, appear more necessary than aesthetic. Yet, there is a subtle beauty about each image - haunting, unsettling and almost archaic. Perhaps you are drawn by Christie’s use of mysterious hues; or grasping at something academic, hovering just above your intelligence. Whatever it may be, your inquiry continues until you have at last unearthe... [more]

A World's Fair tribute in a New York neighborhood mash up   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Posted 8/24/14

New York City has always been a draw for an eclectic mix of artists working across the visual and performing arts. Its underground pubs and speakeasies, expansive loft spaces, museums, sidewalks, and streets have served as creative inspiration for all kinds of movements including jazz, expressionism, Fluxus, hip-hop, and punk. Despite all of that creative energy and expression, the city has also been a beautiful breeding ground for social and cultural dissonance. While New York may not be known... [more]

Pray Harder: An Interview with Delphine Boël  
by
8/24/14 Posted 8/24/14

Brussels, Aug 2014: In Delphine Boël’s witty and thought-provoking Pray Harder exhibition at Guy Pieters Gallery on the Belgian coast throughout September an anonymous letter writer sends God a series of imploring, coquettish and frustrated letters. The only response this devotee receives, mostly conveyed in the form of sculptures, is “Pray Harder.” This series, like all Boël’s art, wraps fraught, raw and heavy content in cheerful colours, frisky forms and an upbeat...

Posted 8/21/14

A human skull rests atop a modest wooden table flanked by a chronometer, books, musical instruments, an earthenware pot, and swathes of silk. Harmen Steenwyck’s Still Life: An Allegory of the Vanities of Human Life (1612-1656) is emblematic of the vanitas genre, most commonly known for its intimate tabletop tableaux alluding to the transient nature of all worldly goods and pursuits. Upon entering Vanitas – Nothing is Forever Anyway at Berlin’s Georg Kolbe Museum, one immediate... [more]

Published in http://www.artindiamag.com/quarter_04_03_14/index.html Acts of drawing are sometimes summed up as dirtying the paper delicately,1 but Ayesha Sultana’s drawings in Outside the field of view, her first solo at Experimenter, Kolkata, mounted from the 9th of May to the 26th of June, are anything but delicate. Sultana ‘dirties’ the paper vigorously and obsessively, while reining in her mark-marking within perfectly geometric shapes. Nine graphite drawings of various si... [more]

When Depression Strikes - HYPERALLERGIC

Installation view of “Depression” at Francois Ghebaly Gallery. All images by the author for Hyperallergic. LOS ANGELES — It was 4:20pm when I walked into Depression and encountered Andrea Ursuta’s piece “Stoner” (2013). A batting-cage ball-throwing machine creaked on, spun once, and died before it could eject anything from its quarantined-off belly. It is located inside a larger batting cage. There is no entrance. There is no bat to play with. Stones are... [more]

Endurance training for the noncommittal   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Conrad Guevara at City Limits July 19th - August 23rd
Posted 8/18/14

At the heart of the works in No Can Handle is the ethos of endurance. Entering the exhibition is not unlike entering an interpretation of a physical training facility. Equipment-like inventions dangle from the ceiling and perch amidst the gallery space; there is even a painted panel squatting in the crease of a gym mat on the floor. Many of the works, like Bow 4 (2014) have a suggestive tenacity. Bow 4 is a delicately curved wooden pole bending like a “C” around an entire wall, held in plac... [more]

A Space for Dreamers: An Interview with Duncan Alexander Cameron Stewart

8/17/14 Posted 8/17/14

Toronto, Aug. 2014: “The daydream transports the dreamer outside the immediate world to a world that bears the mark of infinity.” –Gaston Bachelard The tipping point between the limitless and the limited is well traversed. A common steadiness has been found in speaking of the two types of spaces at once, though they are indeed opposed to one another with regards to the dream: the two exist synonymously for the dreamer. But in using the metaphor of immense space to describe int... [more]

Who's in charge of change?  
by
8/14/14 Posted 8/14/14

For eons of time mass consciousness has been under the illusion that politics is the control center for world affairs, that presidents define the destinies of both countries and people and we the public are subject to its wavering discourse. We have been led to believe that media sets the trend for cultural standards of how we should feel and think and that the answer to true happiness lies in upholding the values embodied by the majority and the most popular in our circle of influence. ...
