How, Against Stacked Odds, Did Art by an African Artist Become the Centerpiece of the World’s Most Prestigious Contemporary Showcase?  
by
8/21/14 Posted 8/21/14

from The Ann Arbor Review of Books South African Artist Wim Botha has prepared an incredible work of carved books for the Venice Biennale. “Unless there’s terrible news Africa doesn’t get much notice in this part of the world.” Thus begins a piece by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Holland Cotter, for The New York Times. The piece, titled “A Million Pieces of Home”, subconsciously reveals a patronizing ideology which more often than not pervades the We... [more]

When Depression Strikes - HYPERALLERGIC  
by
8/20/14 Posted 8/20/14

Installation view of “Depression” at Francois Ghebaly Gallery. All images by the author for Hyperallergic. LOS ANGELES — It was 4:20pm when I walked into Depression and encountered Andrea Ursuta’s piece “Stoner” (2013). A batting-cage ball-throwing machine creaked on, spun once, and died before it could eject anything from its quarantined-off belly. It is located inside a larger batting cage. There is no entrance. There is no bat to play with. Stones are... [more]

France is for Phonies: Julie Lequin Isolated in Paris - ART21 BLOG

8/20/14 Posted 8/20/14

by Alicia Eler | Feb 12, 2013 Julie Lequin. “En résidence,” 2009. Watercolor and pencil on paper, 12 x 9 in. Courtesy the artist. French-Canadian artist Julie Lequin consciously blurs personal history and fictionalized worlds in her videos, performances, drawings, and writings, creating new narratives in the process. Lequin’s real-life events become part of an ongoing, first-person storyline that, told humorously and from an unconsciously self-conscious point-of-v... [more]

Endurance training for the noncommittal   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Conrad Guevara at City Limits July 19th - August 23rd
Posted 8/18/14

At the heart of the works in No Can Handle is the ethos of endurance. Entering the exhibition is not unlike entering an interpretation of a physical training facility. Equipment-like inventions dangle from the ceiling and perch amidst the gallery space; there is even a painted panel squatting in the crease of a gym mat on the floor. Many of the works, like Bow 4 (2014) have a suggestive tenacity. Bow 4 is a delicately curved wooden pole bending like a “C” around an entire wall, held in plac... [more]

Three Exhibitions That Are Shaking Up Colour This Summer   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
at National Gallery June 18th - September 7th
Posted 8/18/14

The National Gallery’s summer exhibition Making Colour guides the audience through the spectrum of materials used throughout history to create artists’ pigment—from blues, through reds and oranges, to purples. Each room focuses on a specific colour and the multiple materials used to make it over time, from early earth pigments, through lakes (dyes made into pigment) to the new artificial coal tar derived pigments created around the time of the Impressionists. The function of t... [more]

Under Construction

8/13/14 Posted 8/13/14

This new page is under construction for a while as I add very old works scanned from slides. I'm also choosing a few for sale and print here at this site, and am minded for catalogues and a new book page deadlines. I'm Trying to get the photography done without too much slowing down. Two peices are going to show early next year in the Bienale Di Palermo in Palermo, Sicily and Florence Italy. I think artists who've been admitted all get an award and there's a competition for a prize. ... [more]

My Favorite Artworks in Schloss Eggenberg, Graz, Austria  
by
8/13/14 Posted 8/20/14

Schloss Eggenberg in Graz, Austria is a magnificent Baroque palace and in 2010 was included in the listing of UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Sites. In 2012, when I made a brief stop at Graz, though I was not able to visit the museum housed inside the Schoss, Universalmuseum Joanneum, I was able to tour the building and its lovely garden ground. Though I couldn't go inside many marvelous rooms, I was able to see this wonderful triptych below through the window and though it was medieval in styl... [more]

Disintegrating Letters of an Unknown Alphabet   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Dorothea Tanning at Alison Jacques Gallery July 11th - September 27th
Posted 8/12/14

When asked how it felt to be a surrealist in 2002, Dorothea Tanning, Grand Dame of surrealism (read: last surviving surrealist—then 91 years of age) responded “like a fossil,” with all the implications of stone-held lifelessness that description conjures for an art form that was declared definitely dead sixty years prior. Web of Dreams draws its theme from her work with the figure—a broad remit, and ultimately one that serves as a catch-all to present a chronologically wide-rangi... [more]

"Yes!" Art Competition

8/9/14 Posted 8/9/14

"Yes!" Art Competition Submission Deadline is August 25th, 11:45 pm There are things in our lives to which we spontaneously respond - "Yes!". However, we also have to learn to say - "Yes" to things that first do not resonate well with us. Maybe there is a purpose for which they come into our lives? Instead of fighting, isn't it better to say "yes!" and embrace the unknown which will help us to reach new heights? We want to see the best "Yes" artworks that you have created, either recently o...

My Favorite Artworks in the Mausoleum, Graz, Austria  
by
8/7/14 Posted 8/14/14

Graz is an ancient Austrian city, whose Renaissance cityscape is dominated by the complex of Mausoleum of Emperor Ferdinand II and the Dom and the Katharinenkirche (right, left and middle). In 2010, I visited Graz and saw this impressive tomb, a minor St. Peter's, designed by Ferdinand's court artist Giovanni Pietro de Pomis. The interior was both grand and intimate, magnificent and humble. I found the center shrine (above) very impressive, dark and somber, topped with the Emperor's proud... [more]
