ROMANOVA SVETLANA-ART

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 plasticit... [more]

Frieze Flashback: How To Do An Art Party at Home   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Posted 10/20/14

Good evening, art-appreciators! Please pull up a Beuysian chair, with a heap of fat on it, because I have something to ask you: Had a good Frieze, did you, reader? Drank some complimentary champagne? Saw at least one instance of 'is this art'? Hung out at Selfridges Hotel, in a dress with spaghetti straps? Wore a black smock instead—normcore style? Said the words "art market," and didn't even flinch at how serious you were about it? Listened, once, "ironically," to "Anaconda" by Nicki Minaj a... [more]

30 Years of The Turner Prize: 10 Most Notorious Entries  
by
Duncan Campbell, Ciara Phillips, James Richards, Tris Vonna-Michell at Tate Britain 10/19/14 Posted 10/19/14

It's Turner Prize time again. Britain’s most hated art award celebrates its 30th year this year. What has it achieved in over three decades? For one thing – its brought contemporary British art to the public attention – mostly to be lampooned by the tabloids. Who can forget headlines surrounding Tracey Emin’s winning entry My Bed (dubbed ‘My Turd’ by Private Eye) or the fury roused by Damien Hirst’s formaldehyde tiger shark entry in 1992? The “national joke” has provoked walk outs and protests (the Stuckist... [more]

ART-DO YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT?  
by
10/18/14 Posted 10/18/14

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]

Ten Hallucinations from Spaced Out   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

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.

Frieze Previews: Jérôme Bel's Inflammatory Disabled Theatre Makes Its London Debut   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

at Frieze London October 15th - October 18th
Posted 10/12/14

It seems like this year, perhaps influenced by the performance series 14 Rooms that took place at Art Basel a few months ago, Frieze has taken a performative turn. Many of its special projects incorporate live shows, and a new section called Frieze Live will introduce performance-based works and reenactments of historical performances at the fair itself. For example, the Japanese duo United Brothers will offer the visitors a soup made of vegetables grown in the region of Fukushima’s 2011 nuc... [more]

We've already recommeded Disabled Theatre, a "hip hop party"-like performance, and a Frieze Project at the zoo. Here are a few more events and performances to look out for this week: Part of ICA London's Off-Site programme during Frieze this year is a series of panel discussions organized in collaboration with Rhizome. Taking place from Wednesday to Friday, the three panels of "Do you Follow? Art in Circulation" will focus on the politics of digital circulation and its effect on contemporary art... [more]

Also part of Frieze Projects 2014 is Cerith Wyn Evans' offsite project that will take place at the London Zoo at Regent’s Park.

Ed Fornieles: Post-Internet Art and the Modern Family   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Ed Fornieles at Chisenhale Gallery September 19th - November 9th
Posted 10/12/14

In the run up to Ed Fornieles’ solo show, Chisenhale Gallery's Instagram feed was peppered with quick-moving pictures of wholesome family activities—brightly colored breakfast cereals, food porn and sleeping infants, angelic kids growing up to uplifting muzak, hand-holding—some of which descend into destruction, fire, or violence. Other images remained open-ended, such as the repeated phrase "Be Yourself." Fornieles, a British artist now working in LA, who was part of Sarah McC... [more]

“Falling, rushing, ruining! buried in the ruins, on Urthona's dens” – William Blake, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, 1790-1793. Icarus’ father Daedalus made him wings and warned him not to fly too close to the sun. But Icarus, ecstatic with the ability to fly, forgot his father’s caution—the feathers came loose and Icarus descended to his death in the sea. This Greek myth can be literally interpreted as the human desire to overcome his or her limits. In... [more]

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]

damn make-up. "I swear there is NO editing here! (well, I won't lie, I cut the image to make it square).I was preparing myself for a photoshoot, and after I painted one eye and put one of the contact lenses, I was like, 'woah, makes a difference'. Had never really realized until now. Pale perfect skin, blue feline eye, big lips. And then freckled face, brown eye, no eyelashes.Bam, cleaned my right side and took a picture. Sweet.Just look at what make-up can do.Me gusta." And my god, when I s... [more]

Ruins Porn: The Art of Urban Decay  
by
10/5/14 Posted 10/14/14

When Matthew Christopher said "ruins porn" at his recent "Abandoned America: The Age of Consequences" Preservation Austin talk, sponsored by Suzanne Deal Booth, I was so guilty of it I blushed. I've had a penchant for the urban decay aesthetic for as long as I can recall. Fortunately I live downtown in a city that is constantly undergoing major construction and rapid population growth, so decomposing eye candy is part of my daily environment. Above is a snapshot I took of broken windows in my... [more]

Art in the USA

10/2/14 Posted 10/2/14

SO - some have said I should stop over-dramatizing the hardships of being an artist in the USA. Saying that my art is a terrorist threat to the thugs in the government - that's taking it too far. Is it an overdramatization? I wish. Here's a picture of a wax piece I travelled with today, arriving in the USA to have it cast in Arizona. Before and after: Very strong work, took several months to craft from a solid block of styrofoam, then coat with beeswax and surface for casting, without break... [more]
