         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 plasticity and abi... [more]

by
12/1/16 Posted 2/11/16

As we flock around her right after our final MA Visual Arts First Year Juries and I request some time for an interview as directed by my professor Sir Quddus Mirza (Editor of ArtNow), there is a yes and a no in the answer that I get. The word enigmatic is a constant in all the published material that I’ve read about Sumaya Durrani in my humble quest to know a bit about her and we, the visual arts Master's students frozen in the space of her eloquence, are proof that it’s true.

Nathan Mabry at Cherry and Martin 4/25/16 Posted 4/25/16

Nathan Mabry’s exhibition gripgrabstacksqueeze, at Cherry and Martin, opens with a black, partially abstract, figurative sculpture suggestive of indigenous art placed on an oil drum. The upper half of this totemic form seems to have emerged from the drum, its dark and glutinous texture reminiscent of tar. With this opening work, Mabry succinctly kicks off the show with a meditation on the fetishism of early western cultures and their artifacts, as well as the loss of these cultures as a re... [more]

When I Am Working I am Exploring  
by
3/30/16 Posted 3/30/16

Dorothy L Merk When I am working, I am not worrying about what other people think and feel, I am exploring my most mundane feelings. The purpose of my work is to take the ordinary and transform it into a universal feeling or expression. My work is applicable to all people because it transcends our basic existence and expresses a real humanness and spirituality. The result is the truth and the beauty of truth that is universal.

by
3/28/16 Posted 3/28/16

Muerner Marioni, throughout her career, which included studies with Nicki de Saint Phalle, seems to have been in a single-minded pursuit of individuation. This goal has been attained as a direct consequence of her deriving strength form reducing and concentrating attention on the most pressing and urgent needs; to compress and distill obsessions and repression and fill these with a particular intensity while doing so. by John Austin, art critic Hidden Women by Manuella Muerner Mar...

Sightseeing 2016 oil on raw canvas 36 x 36 inches Buyers are often interested in buying an artist's latest work but they can be a lot more pricey. I frequently I sell older paintings that I did several years ago. The site Chairish.com has been particularly helpful in this regard. It is a sort of do-it-yourself interior design sort of site.

“Do women have to be naked to get into the Met. Museum?” The Guerrilla Girls have famously been asking the same question since 1989, when the feminist group first pointed out that “Less than 5% of the modern art section [at the museum] are women.” That was in New York, but does the same hold true for the representation and visibility of modern women artists in non-western regions? While the West is quick to slap a “suppressed” sticker on Middle Eastern women... [more]
