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 plasticity and abi... [more]

Wonder and Connection: On Fabricating Nature in Art   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
Posted 7/1/15

One issue that weighs on my psyche as an artist working in the realm of realism is that of understanding the attraction to and value of created nature in art. In my own work, I create and preserve moments from nature as a statement on the transience of life. But, during my wanderings through picturesque parks and other abundantly verdant spaces in Seattle, my current city of residence, I began to question why we seek to recreate imagery from the organic world when it already appears perfectly in na...

Private and Confidential  
by
Mark Stammers at AE Contemporary Art Gallery June 27th - July 11th
Posted 6/30/15

This exhibition is called Private and Confidential, the pieces are beautifully framed prints, that vibrate with luminous colour and luscious brush strokes, these seductive effects give a warm and enticing atmosphere to the imagery, but underneath is a certain and sudden shock as the mind realises the figurative imagery that challenges the imagination and beckons satire and paradox, and the cartoon, these seem to rent through the surface of appearances.....perhaps to comfort the knowing viewer wi...

My Favorite Artworks at Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute, Venezia  
by
6/16/15 Posted 7/1/15

Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute in Venezia, though so-called a minor cathedral, due to its strategic location near the tip of Punta della Dogana, visible when entering the Piazza San Marco from the Grand Canal, was a natural stop for many visitors to the city. Its interior was relatively sparse, understated and unassuming, but that it didn't prevent Salute from accumulating some muted splendors. Amongst several interesting and moving works, I cite these two as my favorites (below). The one lef... [more]

FLUX: Dawn of the Harlem Art Fair  
by

Last weekend, Harlem welcomed the FLUX Art Fair - its first contemporary art fair. The event launched with a VIP reception on Wednesday, May 13th and was open to the public Thursday, May 14th through Sunday, the 17th. FLUX had been hard-fought by its organizer, Leanne Stella of Art in Flux -especially with the building under hard-hat construction up to the eleventh hour. All came together beautifully in the end, and the FLUX Art Fair waxed luminous against a backdrop of higher profile art ev... [more]

My Favorite Artwork at Piazza di San Marco  
by
5/22/15 Posted 6/18/15

Piazza di San Marco in Venice is a marvelous museum itself, featuring valuable historical artifacts and artistic treasures, too numerous to list. One of my two favorites is the iconic sculpture of "I Tetrarchi (The Tetrarchs)" at the foot of Basilica di San Marco, depicting four ebony colored Tetrarchs huddling together, either in fear, or treacherous congregation. Very intriguing and engaging: The second favorite sculpture of mine is actually a capital, which has some very peculiar looking heads sticking out of the column, some with the spirit... [more]

Tina Barney at Paul Kasmin Gallery - 10th Ave May 7th - June 20th
Posted 5/19/15

Famed for her portrayal of the upper class in New York, New England, and Long Island, Tina Barney’s work is an ethnographic study of the bourgeoisie. The eleven works on view in this retrospective are snapshots from a play where if one stares long enough, one might hear the muffled dialogue of Barney’s subjects travel through time. With shots capturing characters in mid-motion, such as The Reception (1985), the viewer is pulled into the scene right before a significant event is about to o... [more]
