Malala's Nobel Peace Prize: Images Speak Longer Than Words   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
Posted 10/20/14

"This is a story of a native girl being saved by the white man. Flown to the UK, the Western world can feel good about itself as they save the native woman from the savage men of her home nation. It is a historic racist narrative that has been institutionalized." – Assed Baig, quoted in Middle East Revisited Reception to Malala Yousafzai’s selection as a Nobel Peace Prize winner (shared with Kailash Satyarthi) earlier this month was met with mixed sentiments: from contemptuousness to confidence, a...

I have been a creative person since I was allowed to use crayons! Creating things that I could play with or use in my grade school assignments from what I colored or designed was my escape... I would look for paper scraps, cardboard, fabric and really anything that I could incorporate into my final production or should I say, self-made "trophy" that I would later share with family members. In grade school we created what was known as a "diarama" which consisted of a shoebox that I had the task o... [more]

George Grosz' Grotesque Humanity   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
George Grosz at Highgate Gallery October 11th - November 9th
Posted 10/16/14

Every bit as run-down as I remember it, the escalator at the tube station ejects me onto the dull evening streets of Archway. In the queue for the cash machine, a flower-seller smiles and asks me to move aside so he can manoeuvre his heavy but empty trolley closer to the curb. As I insert my card, in the light coming from the doors of the bar on the corner, three men with the yellow-grey skin of a longtime drinker bicker and spit. They give me looks as I pass. From within comes the lilting sound of a... [more]

Carry Your Ghosts: Ryan McGinley, Dan Colen, and the Specters of Youth   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
Ryan McGinley at Team Gallery - Grand St September 7th - October 12th
Posted 10/15/14

When I moved to New York in 2007 one of the first things I picked up was a copy of New York Magazine with Dash Snow, Dan Colen, and Ryan McGinley in bed together on the cover. The image, shot by Cass Bird, has stayed with me. It shows a bird’s-eye view of three friends in their underwear, snuggled together like a small litter of puppies. The picture is intimate but it becomes oddly intrusive on a magazine cover, in part because no one is making eye contact with the photographer. Instead all... [more]

Ten Hallucinations from Spaced Out   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
Posted 10/14/14

1) A young woman in skinny jeans pauses outside the entrance of Spaced Out: Migration to the Interior. She pulls her cell phone away from her ear and peeks in at the pink shag carpet lining the floor and Fred Tomaselli’s Diary (1990). She tells whoever is on the other end of her phone call to hold on a minute as she turns her head toward the bouncer, “What the hell is going on in there?” she wants to know, “Is this some kind of surrealist circus or what?” Jim La...

Posted 10/13/14

In dishonor of the longtime US holiday celebrating the beginning of the colonization of the Americas, we here at ArtSlant thought it might be a good idea to round up some influential postcolonial artworks that interrogate and deconstruct the long-lasting effects of colonization on identity. Props to the states that have opted out of Columbus Day: AK, AR, CA, DE, FL, HI, MI, MN, NV, OR, SD, TX, VT, WA, WI, WY.

The glazes can only be applied once the layer below is absolutely dry. The pigment is applied in thin layers using a medium - which in this case is poppy oil. the thin layer will optically mix with the layer below to form a new colour and giving a transparent effect . the colours are mixed using a base mix grayed down slightly with a comp colour as well as a comp colour mix itself. a warm up and cool down colour is available for each as well as white. the base and comp colours have white a...

How to get an honest opinion about your artwork   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
Jonas Lund at Boetzelaer|Nispen September 6th - October 11th
Posted 10/9/14

"Empty, alienating, soul-less, superficial, formulaic, repetitive, awkward, thick, one-dimensional… Imitation of bad work does not flatter." "Yet another denim jeans riff on Yves Klein." "DESTROY." These are the types of criticisms Jonas Lund’s paintings have been receiving lately, but the Amsterdam-based Swedish artist is likely unconcerned. The offending artworks were not yet his—and it appears they never will be. While the works were made at his behest following guidelines from a 300... [more]

The Matchbox Series.  
10/7/14 Posted 10/7/14

Many of the pictures featured on my site are part of the Matchbox Series. Here I have used matchbox fronts as a starting point for paintings. The variety of typography and visual elements gave me inspiration for colour treatments and contextual references. The idea of using matchboxes has it's own link to a past, a world which has all but dissapeared today. The marriage of contemporary painting and old graphic design is of interest to me, as a certain pathos results when the old, often iconic, oft... [more]
