It is hard to take any exhibition with a grandiose title such as Photography Since the Millennium seriously, but then again, we are just fifteen years into this new millennium.
And there have not been any major strides in photography except for, well, the death of analogue, and video is accessible to all. Goodbye film, hello pixels. Has there been one year since the new millennium that has not seen a new release of cameras with enhanced numbers of pixels? It is the mega pixel era.
We cannot begin any assessment of the work of Frank Stella without the obligatory quote that has followed his career for over fifty years. “What you see is what you see” was Stella’s painterly philosophy distilled down to seven words. If there is a definition of Minimalism that is more succinct, it has yet to replace Stella’s as a key to understanding a certain type of particularly American painting in mid-century art history.
At the Whitney Museum we have a chance to ca... [more]
Collezione Peggy Guggenheim (Peggy Guggenheim Collection), located in an unfinished 18th-century palace, Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, boasts many modern masterpieces ranging in style from Cubism and Surrealism to Abstract Expressionism. One of my favorite work there was a sculpture in the garden: The Cloven Viscount (Il visconte dimezzato) by Mimmo Paladino, which was simultaneously formal and fluid, familiar and strange, comforting and unsettling. The figure, installed inside a small square bri... [more]

An Interview with Jaime Foster: Biophilia @ The Elephant Room Gallery
By S. Nicole Lane
The paintings of Jaime Foster, a Chicago-based artist, are reminiscent of the waves in Lake Michigan: When the fog has drifted and the overcast sky hangs low above the horizon, the water greets the shore with a kiss-and-go. Many of her pieces are vast--both in scale and in palette. Her work acknowledges the larger landscape--the water, the mountain, and the trees--but the core of her work is in the de... [more]

Dexter Sy, born on November 1979, a graduate of fine arts major in advertising in the Far Eastern University approaches the cultural particularities of being a Chinese-filipino. In the contemporary era, the two traditional value systems co-existed as equally waning in day to day life, which served as the concept for his painting. Sy carefully arranged his paintings from abundant allusions to religious, tradition and contemporary matters. He emphasized the cultural patchwork applyingiconographic depiction... [more]
What goes on behind the closed doors of the artists' studio has always fascinated the layperson. What do they do in there? Creative spaces appeal to our aesthetic imagination—they're often laden with eclectic objects, designed to benefit the artist's productivity. Psychologically, the interior architecture of the studio is perhaps assumed to be a reflection of the artist's thinking.
But in the post-industrial economy, the spaces artists work in have had to change and adapt to a more migrat... [more]
Iraqi-Finnish artist Adel Abidin returns to his painterly roots for the first time in six years with Immortals, a solo exhibition running at Lawrie Shabibi in Dubai. The show, which challenges society’s perceptions of Arabic-speaking media, gives visitors the feeling of watching live news on television, with some irony added in.
The outstretched hand of a cleric appears from behind a microphone-strewn podium, while his body is obscured in black. The artist seems to suggest that figures o... [more]
I like my paintings to exude a raw human energy. I want the process and the struggle to be evident in the marks.
I begin each painting with specific outcomes in mind yet I allow myself to go off on tangents, embracing each accident and creating something new within it. This ensures the process is lively and exciting.
I create images that interest me with historical references from Romantic eras and Renaissance painting, combined with expressive marks inspired by abstract expressionism and the o... [more]

I’m sitting on the beach in Jervis Bay on the New South Wales coast. Ian and I have taken a few days off and headed down to one of our favourite coastal areas to celebrate our 31st wedding anniversary.
Yesterday we went for a beach walk. It was great to feel the sand between my toes and scour the water’s edge for all sorts of interesting objects.
I love to take lots of photos and I came across this delightful little terrier dog. She was chasing the waves, trying to catch them as they... [more]
