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]

“Paintings of Women by the Handful,” by Benjamin Sutton, L Magazine (September 29, 2010)

Knox Martin at Woodward Gallery September 15th, 2010 - November 13th, 2010
Posted 7/30/16

“Paintings of Women by the Handful,” by Benjamin Sutton, L Magazine (September 29, 2010) Since very nearly the earliest chapters of art history, women have been among artists’ two or three preferred subjects (or objects, following feminism’s reframing of that history). Two new solo exhibitions three doors from one another on Eldridge Street attest to the feminine figure’s inexhaustible appeal. For Knox Martin, the female form remains a sensual muse that he dissects and... [more]

My Favorite Artworks at Basilica Santuario Santo Stefano, Bologna  
by
7/24/16 Posted 7/30/16

Basilica Santuario Santo Stefano, the oldest church in Bologna, was very atmospherically evocative and romantic, and the many unique artefacts in its often darkish chambers added much allure. The artwork left the strongest impression on me was a small plate of relief on the exterior of its nave, featuring three primitive looking figures with haloed heads resembling astronauts' in headgear, and stiffly raised hands sending signals of warning or blessing. The central figure, the only seated on... [more]

Cross Currents: Don't Forget the Water - Salish Sea

by Gregg Chadwick Gregg ChadwickSalish Sea30"x24" oil on linen 2014 Two years ago on a technicolor blue day, I stood on the deck of the Wenatchee ferry cutting through the choppy sea from Seattle to Bainbridge Island. The vessel was named for the Wenatchi people who originally lived in the shadow of the Columbia and Wenatchee Rivers in Eastern Washington State. We are riding on a ship of memory. In the Yakama language, wenatchi means "river flowing from can... [more]

My Favorite Monuments at Il palazzo dell'Archiginnasio, Bologna  
by
7/18/16 Posted 7/26/16

Il palazzo dell'Archiginnasio (The Palace of Archeology) in Bologna is a fantastical enclosed palatial building, whose corridors are adorned with numerous decorative emblems, all of them can be viewed as relief sculptures. My favorite was a monument of a tower wrapped by a snake and topped by a huge cross. I didn't like stare at that animal and couldn't decipher the exact meaning of the symbol, other than it resembled a reverse caduceus; but it stood out in the pack. My second... [more]

My Favorite Sculptures at Legambiente Bologna & Emilia Romagna, Italy  
by
7/9/16 Posted 7/17/16

Italian City Bologna itself is like an open museum, full of sculptures and monuments of distinction. I was quite impressed by several groups of sculptures around Legambiente Bologna & Emilia Romagna, an old city portal and the surrounding park. The two mirroring bronze relief sculptures at the base of the gate impressed with their incredible beautiful lines and their economic way of presenting something deeply disturbing and touching. Inside the park, there were some marble high reliefs and on... [more]

Contemporary Eve - The Moon Made Me Do It  
by
7/6/16 Posted 7/6/16

The Moon Made Me Do It Acrylic on Wood 65" x 53" x 2" This primal portrait represents the sexual angst of the biblical Eve. Originally, the inspiration was from my friend who desperately yearns for sexual liberation but is chained to a lackluster marriage. She modeled for me with the caveat that her identity would be disguised. Using a neo-expressionist attitude, and playing off Munch’s Scream, I morphed her identity with Eve’s to protect her from her husband but also to express the ultimat... [more]

My Favorite Sculptures at Legambiente Bologna & Emilia Romagna, Italy  
by
7/3/16 Posted 7/11/16

The richness and depth of artworks in numerous Italian churches, large or small, are astounding. Basilica di San Giacomo Maggiore in Bologna was just one of those enchanted me in my 2012 trip to Italy. Basilica di San Giacomo Maggiore, Bologna I was very taken by one of its murals, depicting enthroned Virgin Mary, flanked by several martyr saints, underneath a pediment of resurrected Jesus. The Virgin and most of the saints were in vivid blue and red colors, contrasting strongly to the paleness... [more]

A photograph is rarely seen as an act of rebellion these days. Hundreds of billions of images are taken and circulated around the world each year. But under China’s censorship laws, Ren Hang’s outdoor nudes are radicalized. What We Do is Secret, Hang’s new exhibition now on view at MAMA, features striking photos the artist had to risk his reputation to take. Hang sometimes has to run from police when shooting. The Beijing-born artist, who usually photographs his friends naked has bee... [more]
