ROMANOVA SVETLANA-ART  
by
3/31/20 Posted 3/5/09

         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]

Shahkaar - In Conversation with Sumaya Durrani  
by
12/1/16 Posted 2/11/16

As we flock around her right after our final MA Visual Arts First Year Juries and I request some time for an interview as directed by my professor Sir Quddus Mirza (Editor of ArtNow), there is a yes and a no in the answer that I get. The word enigmatic is a constant in all the published material that I’ve read about Sumaya Durrani in my humble quest to know a bit about her and we, the visual arts Master's students frozen in the space of her eloquence, are proof that it’s true. Dur... [more]

Artist’s gloves  
by
4/24/16 Posted 4/24/16

Work represents taking prints from the hand of the artist, creating a unique usable object (gloves, made of latex). The subject indicates the question of mass production in the world in general, and the mass production of art, and therefore raises another issue of authenticity of the product itself. Taking direct prints from artists skin, leads us to giving and taking personal identity, which is also used in translating to massive identity, and therefore it raises another question of consuming pe...

Current state // Artist's collection  
by
4/24/16 Posted 4/24/16

Project "Current state" represents an archive of personal belongings of the artist through photographs. Taking object created in the process of mass production, is a general act which is characteristic of the process of creating personal collection. Personal things in this case are referred to as "objects" are listed by numbers, stored in a particular category. Through this process it becomes depersonalized, transformed into photographic documents that resemble examples from the catalog of consumer... [more]

The work was performed in the service of the archive process, in the form of collection of bacteria from my own body. The samples were transferred to an environment conducive to growth and development. The sum of the collected bacteria showing the presence of invisible organisms on the body of the host.

Spomenar/Artist book  
by
4/24/16 Posted 4/24/16

This work is based on collecting various damages of skin, of people who are in some sort of contact with the author. In this way, through photography, and brief notes of the same, I have done the archiving process of human skin as portraits through rejecting any kind of emotion. The work is conceived as a kind of the scrapbook that is constantly upgraded. More here [more]

Portrait of MCAB  
by
4/23/16 Posted 4/23/16

Portrait of MCAB The work "Portrait of MCAB" is not only about the issue of Museum as a space, which has been closed for some time; it is also about Museum s existence in time, as well as the biological aspect. Given that I have not had a chance to visit the interior of the Museum, neither when it was open for public nor now, I can infer that I do not have a relationship with it, and see it merely as one building in line building rotting away in Belgrade. The issue of time imposes itself... [more]

Artist & Painter - Aase Birkhaug Believing that surroundings can influence one` s health and mind, Painter and Physiotherapist Aase Birkhaug has combined her two passions by painting roses for a soothing effect.

It is documented that colors have an effect on the sensory system, and... [more]

THE FUTURE OF ART: Fabiola Jean-Louis Rewrites History  
by
4/9/16 Posted 4/9/16

Recently exhibited at Harlem School of the Arts' freshly renovated Gallery Space, Fabiola Jean-Louis' Rewriting History is an interdisciplinary series that serves up a ride through antiquity and imagination. Modern period dresses, fashioned almost entirely from paper, become actors in a photographic essay that challenges notions of reality, time and space. Visual, sculptural and performative at once, the artist creates a world that embodies an alternate past where people of color might have live... [more]

What Does an Interesting Theory Look Like?   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
Adriana Lara at Kraupa-Tuskany Zeidler February 27th - April 9th
Posted 4/7/16

Interesting. The word says a lot and nothing at all. We often leverage it to describe people, projects, and ideas that we don’t quite know what to make of yet—or notions too complicated to be quickly defined. Used and abused, the word teeters on the brink of vacuity. Defining something as interesting insists on a radical subjectivity, the spark of a personal constellation of references and affinities. Yet it equally connotes the superficial bundle of affects often tendered in digital exc... [more]

Aukje Dekker Makes Patrons Decide When Her Paintings Are Finished—And It Could Cost Them   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
Aukje Dekker at Vriend van Bavink Project Space Pacific Place April 8th - April 23rd
Posted 3/29/16

I’m not a gambling man by nature, never quite understood the allure of the blackjack table or roulette wheel. But when Aukje Dekker invited me to a game of Stick or Twist I couldn’t resist. The game starts at 150 euro. Dekker’s ante is an empty canvas. When she adds something to the painting my deposit increases by 50 euro. At every stage she asks me whether I’ll “stick”—in other words, buy the work as is—or “twist,” and go for another round. I... [more]

When I Am Working I am Exploring  
by
3/30/16 Posted 3/30/16

Dorothy L Merk When I am working, I am not worrying about what other people think and feel, I am exploring my most mundane feelings. The purpose of my work is to take the ordinary and transform it into a universal feeling or expression. My work is applicable to all people because it transcends our basic existence and expresses a real humanness and spirituality. The result is the truth and the beauty of truth that is universal.

I Love  
by
3/30/16 Posted 3/30/16

Dorothy L Merk I love the beauty of the exquisite line, elegant composition, the artist touch and the rapture of the stroke of the pen or brush. It is the love that inspires me to become excited by a strong emotion and to try to move through it to this place of the universal understanding and freedom I bring to the viewer. [more]
