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 since the new millennium 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... [more]

Last night I attended the opening of the incredibly lovely exhibition, Without/Color. At Figureworks in Williamsburg, this show currently features three artists (there will be a second iteration of the show with an additional three artists). The first room features evocative pencil drawings of female figures by Joanne Scott. The second room features haunting watercolors by Meridith McNeal. Both rooms are guarded over by intricate and powerful terra-cotta ravens by Alexander Ney. There is a heavy softn... [more]

By: Amy Haddad A group show at LVL3 in Chicago brings together three artists that explore germination in multiple ways. Heidi Norton. “The Plight (feeding Systems).” Image courtesy of LVL3. Visitors attending the “Germination” exhibition at LVL3, a gallery in Chicago, should expect to be surprised by the connections the show offers. The title brings to mind seeds growing into plants. But the visitor cannot help thinking how the term germination has expanded after seeing an amalgama... [more]

This show is not to be missed. The paintings pop off the canvas in bright colors as if the paint were dancing to the jazz music that inspired many of the paintings. While the curator emphasizes the historical importance of these paintings, and that they capture a community not usually chronicled in art, they are great because they are great, period. He uses color and facial expression in a way that seems ahead of his time. It is a delightful and eye opening show. Particularly memorable, a swirling... [more]

Posted 10/18/15

Artworks of Daria Kudinova charm with its composition, color palette and diversity of motives. You do not know for sure what kind of structures are presented at them. Is it something biomorphic or technogenic? What do they mean? What is the concept of those paintings? Besides, you will not understand the main idea of Dasha Kudinova’s artworks if you are not familiar with her biography. Before she developed her own style Dasha worked as a fashion photographer and as an assistant of more expe... [more]

A collection of 15 paintings themed as "the bewilderments of Vincent" by Iranian artist Parisa Sahafi-Asl is to be held at Shalman Art Gallery in Tehran. The motif of the exhibition is inspired and oriented around 15 of Vincent Van Gogh’s paintings depicting the unpleasant contrast between conditions and ideals of the time Van Gogh lived and the 21st century.

The dualities of life have been an inspiration for many artists over the centuries, with pieces showing the unification or separation of these ideas. In their third collaborative exhibition, Zhou B Art Center and PoetsArtists magazine invited select artists and poets to provide their interpretation of one of these concepts, which also is the title of the show, Immortality and Vulnerability. “The ideas of immortality and vulnerability have been part of the human experience for millennia...

Posted 8/28/15

By: Amy Haddad Edgar Degas, “Little Dancer Aged Fourteen.” Many consider Edgar Degas an Impressionist artist—a painter of modern life. That he was, though different than some of his contemporaries. He called himself a “Realist.” Rather than painting plein air landscapes, using color, light and shade to capture fleeting moments, as Monet and other Impressionists famously did, Degas captured everyday movements in the theater, at the ballet or the cafés he frequente...

It isn’t often that you get the chance to look into the workings of a family of artists over three generations, laying themselves open to scrutiny and speculation on their relationships. With the age of the artists ranging from the mature seventies to the youthful twenties, the work is bound to be wildly diversified; from the skilled and honed creativity of one generation to the enthusiastic optimism of another, with all sharing a dedication to, and love of, the arts, each exploring and de...

László Moholy-Nagy at Santa Barbara Museum of Art > Los Angeles
July 5th - September 27th
Posted 8/2/15

The Paintings of Moholy-Nagy: The Shape of Things to Come puts forth a unique take on Moholy-Nagy's painted work with the incorporation of two interventionist pieces by other creators and a smattering of his own theatrical and photographic works. Due to the technology-based works’ expense and inherent complications, Moholy-Nagy reinvestigated painting as a medium to explore light and optics, while still drawing inspiration from these periodic experiments with other media. Perhaps somewhat mi... [more]
