From Censored to Celebrated: An Interview with Betty Tompkins  
by
3/9/14 Posted 3/9/14

New York, Mar. 2014: Before Jeff Koons, Thomas Ruff, Terry Richardson and their raffish ilk appropriated porn for high-art settings, Betty Tompkins was meticulously reproducing scenes of heterosexual penetration in pencil, acrylic, airbrush and ink. Her monochrome images make it clear that porn, not real-life sex, is her subject and underscore the harsh binary responses to her controversial subject and artwork, and to her identity as a woman artist. Tompkins’ large-scale images of furry, shaved and pierced vagina... [more]

“Casual Stripes and Warm Layers”   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Sarah Bednarek, Amelia Midori Miller, Christian Sampson at The ArtBridge Drawing Room May 2nd, 2013 - August 1st, 2013
Posted 8/6/13

Among rising gallery rents and the endless expansion of larger cultural institutions in New York, micro-spaces like ArtBridge’s Drawing Room offer a respite. Ramshackle Kaleidoscope, curated by Jordana Zeldin, is a bite-sized summer exhibition that explores a wing of New Casualism. The smallness of the space – it was once a closet – is suited to the works on display: they are approachable objects, and converse comfortably with each other. Casualists tend towards the jokey and intent... [more]

Bada Reborn - My artwork where I show my sister battle against the cancer, our faith, her victory  
by
5/14/13 Posted 5/14/13

My sister was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2011. My painting ‘Bada Re-Born’ is a tribute to her. Bada is my sister’s nickname and this painting tells the story of her journey from disease to renewed health. This painting which is 72 inches x 72 inches is on exhibition at the Opera Gallery in Miami, Florida. It is a mixed medium geometric piece. I used nails as a metaphor speaking to my sister’s pain as being analogous to the pain of Christ during his crucifixion. Piano wire, tape, acrylic paint and... [more]

Subverting Society: Autonomy in the Portraiture of Barkley L. Hendricks   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Barkley L. Hendricks at Jack Shainman Gallery 20th Street February 28th, 2013 - April 6th, 2013
Posted 3/12/13

“If I didn't define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people's fantasies for me and eaten alive.” —Audre Lorde One might assume that the power of the artist lies in his ability to create his subjects. The series of portraits shown in Barkley L. Hendricks’ Heart Hands Eyes Mind, however, finds its unique authority in the artist’s capacity to allow his characters to define themselves. Rather than dictating the terms of their appearances, Hendricks seems to paint his subjects as... [more]

After going to this show, I spent the next two days holed up reading Rebecca West’s Black Lamb and Grey Falcon: A Journey Through Yugoslavia. In around 1200 pages, West details her journey with her husband to Yugoslavia after World War One. Indistinguishable between fiction and non-fiction, she tells stories of past and present lives and experiences, bridging the distance between the reader and the experience. The story opens on a train: I could not have gone on to justify my certainty that thi... [more]

Bronx, NY, USA) I am engaged in the converging vectors of art and science, but receive added inspiration from kabbalah teachings & meditation and try to create visual forms (in paintings on canvas but also video art) conducive to mystical experience and self-transformation.

Director/Curator Mary Reid’s counterview of contemporary artistic practice in Winnipeg pleasantly interrupted a reverie of city-centric exhibitions asserting legacies and mythologies of local artists and art production. The Winnipeg Art Gallery, of which Reid left her own legacy as Curator of Contemporary Art from 2004-2011, celebrates Winnipeg Now (September 29 –December 30, 2012), while Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art is currently midway through My Winnipeg Project: a series of four exhib...

I cannot help but think of the more commercial, often palette knife-painted, construction-based abstractions of the 1960s as I first walk into the exhibition at CRG Gallery. That is not good. As references go, you want to try to avoid the kitschier techniques, the ones that rely too heavily on dazzling their audience solely with technique, unless you plan to make a commentary about esthetics, or, you are intentionally trying to tweak your audience to get their attention, with the intention of bringi...

Trenton Doyle Hancock at James Cohan Gallery November 8th, 2012 - December 22nd, 2012
Posted 11/29/12

Trenton Doyle Hancock has spent a majority of his career creating works based on a Darger-esque fantastical narrative of his mind--the world of the meat-loving Mounds and their evil counterparts, the Vegans. For his latest show, “ …And Then It All came Back to me” at James Cohan Gallery, the artist has departed from his ten-year narrative focus, and instead decided to delve into the long tradition of creating work based on personal memory. The subject of analyzing the self may induce eye rolls fo... [more]
