Hello frends! I am an artist. My roots take place in St.Petersburg, which has great architecture, culture and history that influenced me once and forever. Today, in the times of technical progress, mass production and new artificial materials I search for inspiration in the foundation of the Arts - old Russian Orthodox icons, Renaissance and folk cultures. I seek out look for new shapes and images within my themes using different materials, but my favorite is glass for its plasticity and abi... [more]
As the glitterati descend upon Florida’s art capital, we'd love to think Art Basel Miami Beach is more than just exclusive parties for rich people in fancy hotels, but the happenings around the fair don't always dissuade this interpretation. This epic art world extravaganza has seen Miley Cyrus decked out in butterfly wings, Amanda Lepore blowing puffy red kisses, and Jay-Z casually perusing the fair's booths. This is where artists swim in the pool drunk with curators who, in turn, run arou... [more]

As technology has advanced over the years we have seen many weird and wonderful gadgets and appliances that have helped us out in the kitchen. From the classic microwave that can help cook, reheat and defrost food within minutes right through to coffee makers that allow us to grab a nice hot mug of coffee before we set out to work in a morning.
One thing we can safely say for sure is that technology is a wonderful part of our lives, and has essentially made things much easier for us in the long... [more]
I recently saw a rare screening in London of Chick Strands' 1979 film Soft Fictions, considered the seminal work of the experimental Californian filmaker. It's an incredible piece, prescient in its style and approach to female representation. It mixes documentary, poetry, truth, and reality, never presenting either victims or victors, but instead the stories told by these female subjects give the idea that "ecstasy is knowing exactly who you are and still not caring."
Though Ann Hirsch, who is also base... [more]

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.

The language of visual information in the digital age has a surprising connection to water: video streams, .wav files, image pools, torrents. All this leads up to the biggest metaphoric aquatic body yet: what the MoMA Department of Photography calls the “Ocean of Images.”
Ocean of Images marks the 30th anniversary of MoMA’s New Photography series. It also signals a few changes to the show. Previously an annual event featuring the work of a handful of artists, in its new guise the sho... [more]
