Reworking An Old Painting  
3/22/16 Posted 3/22/16

Sightseeing 2016 oil on raw canvas 36 x 36 inches Buyers are often interested in buying an artist's latest work but they can be a lot more pricey. I frequently I sell older paintings that I did several years ago. The site has been particularly helpful in this regard. It is a sort of do-it-yourself interior design sort of site. Not being dedicated to fine art, I use it to sell only my old ones - at reasonable, affordable prices. I feel it’s a good deal for everyone: I... [more]

Putting Paint to the Test   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Susan Bee at Accola Griefen Gallery May 23rd, 2013 - June 29th, 2013
Posted 6/25/13

Using scenes from classic cinema as inspiration, Susan Bee’s new body of work puts her medium to the test: with her painterly brushstrokes and jabs competing with the pictorial film stills as the subjects of her paintings. In her solo exhibition, “Criss Cross,” the artist has taken on the impassioned glances and forlorn stares of the silver screen, but removed them from the vintage glamour of chiaroscuro. With purposeful movement and motion evident in her painting, Bee has given each classic scene vi... [more]

Banquet Party  
5/18/13 Posted 5/18/13

Banquet Party ( Artist's Statement) It shines, most pleasant, most of the days  Sometimes it rains, pours down Being in that place, where the Ghosts of the Past dance with the Present and Future Like insects in the warm evening summer sun. This place is warm, bright, colourful and happy - Sad, angry and desperate as well.  Where the Extremes hold a Banquet Some people live overregulated lives - far away from that place.  I am watching them, hate what these rules represent, but also with envy  I have b...

The subjects I choose to paint have some sort of nostalgic calling - ordinary people doing everyday things at interesting places. Often the result reflects the human comedy. Each painting begins with a careful study of it's composition. Then, through a evolutionary process, often with moments of spon... [more]

Subverting Society: Autonomy in the Portraiture of Barkley L. Hendricks   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
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 they... [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 this trai... [more]
