Hendrik van Vuuren at Brian Kish Gallery > New York
June 5th - June 13th
Posted 5/29/15

"As a gallerist, I am looking for work that elicits both an emotional and an intellectual response---Hendrik's works accomplish this by creating an aura of mystery. The imagery is powerful as you explore the depth of his castings and as your viewing moves around the pieces. He clearly has moved well beyond the decorative-"--Tom Riley (www.rileygalleries.com) [more]

This week: sandy beach—or a sabulous installation? #1 The focus of this year's Biennale is the implicit structures and constraints of the Biennale as an int... [more]

The more art you see, the more it destablizies your notion of what it is. Every week, ArtSlant asks our discerning readers to participate in our tomfoolery, and ask you, is it art, or not? This week: Which of these pavement pictures described below is, in fact, a print for sale? #1 Up... [more]
