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]

Genetics Determine All The Shit You Do  
by
6/24/16 Posted 6/24/16

My raw vision of humankind is presented through a series of what I call “psychoanalytical portraiture.” My paintings are generated by an intensive interrogative process where the sitter’s perception of self is re-examined and repressed emotions are unveiled. Unapologetically, my art bluntly places free will against genetic determinism. I strongly discount environmental factors as the root cause of our actions. Genetic determinism is the overriding cause for all our compulsio... [more]

The Dumbing of America

The Dumbing of America Mixed Media Collage on Wood 36" x 80" This work is about how most Americans spend all their time looking at this shit and how publicity is triumphant in providing the pretext for success. We are all members of the society of the spectacle, which is correlate with capitalist society. Through these dated magazine clippings that I sourced from local Vietnamese-American nail salons, the commodification of celebrity culture is brought into focus. Now as you look at the work, focus on the fad... [more]

The Matter of Molecular Practice: An Interview with Sean Raspet  
by
6/22/16 Posted 6/21/16

We live at a time when an astounding amount of information is available to us at a shocking degree of immediacy. A netizen will regularly take deep-dives down wiki wormholes, eagerly grazing on masses of hyper-specific information related to a singular topic, all the while rhizomatically connected to and through a world of greater knowledge. No longer limited to a vocabulary of the phenomenological, we can pastiche together descriptions, criticisms, and comments that pull from the sciences, visu... [more]

On the exhibition / Zur Ausstellung  
by
Annabelle Craven-Jones at Cruise & Callas June 25th - July 23rd
Posted 6/21/16

Transmitting information is inherent in today’s networked Internet Age. The information structures of our digital surroundings resemble the inner transmitting systems of nerves and their contacts, the synapses. With the help of messenger substances, neurotransmitters like serotonin pass on information and thereby activate the inner neural system. In her installation Conditions for Neurotransmission [P.O.V.] artist Annabelle Craven-Jones visualizes the mutual effects of both information systems and... [more]

Private Collection series  
by
5/2/16 Posted 5/2/16

Private Collection came to be after almost 3 decades of tucking away personal photographs of my life with JB. Kodak envelopes, photo hut mailings, boxes, albums, digital discs, and finally of course, the exploding spawn of digital devices which seem to spew images like broken water mains- at least in my hands they do. All these moments we file away in the black hole of whatever type of cloud we choose today, or, fire them off into the smediaverse for our own purposes. The works presented he... [more]

Spomenar/Artist book

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]
