Shahkaar - In Conversation with Sumaya Durrani  
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. Dur... [more]

To You, From Me // Meditations on the Poetics of Revolution: A Letter to Kerry James Marshall   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
Kerry James Marshall at Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) April 23rd - September 25th
Posted 4/29/16

I. I don’t subscribe to transcendental notions, generally. I like for things to be firmly rooted in reality and then negotiate from there. I’m not evading, trying to avoid, or trying to distance myself from anything. Let’s get in it. As most of us recognize...no matter how dire circumstances seem to be for human beings, we always find a way to preserve the capacity for joy and the capacity for pleasure at the same time that we’re negotiating disturbing and troubling c...

My Favorite Frescos at Cappella degli Scrovegni in Padova (Padua)  
by
4/26/16 Posted 4/26/16

Cappella degli Scrovegni in Padova (Padua), Italy, boasts a thrilling fresco cycle by Giotto, whose works were so delicate, that the viewers were limited to 10- to 20-minutes guided tours, and could only enter the chapel after a 15-minutes temperature and moisture modulation sessions. That cycle was simply breathtaking - enormous scope, brilliant colors, remarkable compositions, "modern" technique of rendering volumes and understanding of human anatomy and perspectives, and above all, exotic and...

My Featured Painting: Trot  
by
4/22/16 Posted 4/22/16

The motive behind my oil painting Trot was my wish to explore tonal contrasts and arrive at a certain balance of playfulness and menace. The subject of this study is a cat, or two. Before I started my oil, I made several preliminary sketches and once I committed my ideas to the canvas, I proceeded with a cat with upright head. Somehow, after the composition had more or less taken shape, I noticed a more dynamic and emotional sketch with a cat whose head was bending down, thus I incorporated that cat in... [more]

Brenda Goodman Talks 50 Years of Fearless, Introspective Painting  
by
4/4/16 Posted 4/4/16

Brenda Goodman’s work has seen a resurgence in the past two years, with shows at Brooklyn’s Life on Mars Gallery and a retrospective at Detroit’s Center for Creative Studies, her alma mater. Goodman was part of Detroit’s Cass Corridor movement in the 70s and I first encountered her work and influence while living in Detroit in the 80s. I have followed the morphing styles of her paintings ever since. Continuing an ongoing conversation, held over multiple lunches, I recently... [more]

Aukje Dekker Makes Patrons Decide When Her Paintings Are Finished—And It Could Cost Them   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
Aukje Dekker at Vriend van Bavink Project Space Pacific Place April 8th - April 23rd
Posted 3/29/16

I’m not a gambling man by nature, never quite understood the allure of the blackjack table or roulette wheel. But when Aukje Dekker invited me to a game of Stick or Twist I couldn’t resist. The game starts at 150 euro. Dekker’s ante is an empty canvas. When she adds something to the painting my deposit increases by 50 euro. At every stage she asks me whether I’ll “stick”—in other words, buy the work as is—or “twist,” and go for another round. I... [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.

I Love  
by
3/30/16 Posted 3/30/16

Dorothy L Merk I love the beauty of the exquisite line, elegant composition, the artist touch and the rapture of the stroke of the pen or brush. It is the love that inspires me to become excited by a strong emotion and to try to move through it to this place of the universal understanding and freedom I bring to the viewer. [more]

Evocations of Beauty in the Work of Manuella Muerner Marioni  
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...
