Shahkaar - In Conversation with Sumaya Durrani  
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]

My Favorite Paintings at Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York City  
10/22/16 Posted 10/25/16

Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City was an iconic modern building, and I was a bit surprised to see some paintings from somewhat older era - early 20th century, which in current art market has almost become "classical". My favorite painting was Saint-Séverin No. 3 (1909-10) by French painter Robert Delaunay (1885-1941). This monochromatic painting depicted the tall nave of the cathedral and the interlocking buttresses, elongated, soaring, resembling a giant pipe organ, or... [more]

New Blood Art about Sylwia Kaden  
10/19/16 Posted 10/19/16

"Pastel shades and complementary hues are brought into play with loose circular forms in the paintings and drawings of Sylwia Kaden. The work explores the dynamics of shape and colour and is certainly testament to Man Ray’s theory, that the ‘creative force’ within painting must ‘reside materially in the colour and texture of pigment’ and in the ‘possibilities of form invention and organisation’. Kaden indeed explores the relationship of forms to one another an... [more]

Featured Painting - One Fine Day  
10/18/16 Posted 10/18/16

My 2007 oil painting One Fine Day soon will conclude its five-month long exhibition at at McGuire Real Estate Gallery in Elmwood District, Berkeley. This painting, in somewhat sickly moon light tone (pale Prussian blue), depicted a school of agitated and thrashing fish, tightly packed in confining space, bulging eyes telegraphing anguish, straining to escape of a deadly trap they had unfortunately fallen into. The ironic title I chose, perhaps ought to be ascribed to some lucky fishermen. And t... [more]

Jamian Juliano-Villani's Awkward Paintings Make Discomfort an Asset   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Jamian Juliano-Villani at Studio Voltaire October 1st - December 11th
Posted 10/17/16

“I’d never put this shit in my house, ever,” Jamian Juliano-Villani told Hans Ulrich Obrist during a Frieze Week artist talk. She was referring to her own paintings, installed around the audience at Studio Voltaire. There is nothing pretty about Juliano-Villani’s garish, and slightly disturbing, cartoon paintings—no offence to the artist, and probably none taken. Juliano-Villani began painting four years ago, after leaving New Jersey and moving into an apartment in New... [more]

My Favorite Paintings at Neue Galerie, New York City  
10/14/16 Posted 10/24/16

Practically a next door neighbor to the mammoth Metropolitan Museum, Neue Galerie in New York City was a modest and exquisite museum, which specializes in early twentieth-century German and Austrian art and design, and has become much wider known due to its addition of Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I by Gustav Klimt, after a landmark judgement over its ownership, claimed by Österreichische Galerie Belvedere in Vienna, and the original owner's heir, resided then in the US. That Klimt was indee... [more]

My Favorite Paintings at New York Museum of Modern Art (MOMA)  
10/8/16 Posted 10/11/16

One of my favorite museums is the New York Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), of whose early 20th century European painting collections I am particularly partial. My most favorite was a triptych by the German painter Max Beckmann, the mystical and political Departure (1933-35). These beautifully rendered hallucinatory, menacing, foreboding, and just slightly hopeful and redemptive panels, aptly and sadly captured one of the most horrifying moments of human history. These paintings were the answe... [more]

"Der Zauberkreis"  
10/6/16 Posted 10/6/16

"Der Zauberkreis" Un grand cri de douleur passa sous ce ciel sombre, une plainte, une voix du mystère, venue de loin, chargée de larmes, noyée dans les ténèbres… seule une petite flamme vacillait encore sur un cierge immobile…elle en eut le sang glacé… Un froid de loup se fit sentir et la tempête se déchaîna sur ce mur noir, assombri de mystère ; et puis, un grand silence tombait, troublé à peine par le pas d&r...

10/6/16 Posted 10/6/16

« EX-VOTO » Les fils conducteurs étaient déjà présents dans les toiles « aux fonds noirs » faisant vibrer et amplifier les images. Depuis, ces fils dorés (peints encore) se sont matérialisés… prendre vie sur la toile en illuminant le fond doré qui désormais émerge des ténèbres, métallique et lumineux … Les éléments ont trouvé leur place sur la...

Interview with Vadis Turner  
10/1/16 Posted 10/20/16

Vadis Turner, Black Bell (2016), gouache, ribbon and mixed media This interview will be published in Fjords Review in October 2016. Nashville-based artist Vadis Turner explores the transformative possibilities of feminist materials by creating compositions out of upcycled ribbon, clothing and bedding. By synthesizing abstract expressionism with women’s work, Turner constructs dimensional art works that explode with color, texture and form. Not unlike painting, each “mark” is hand... [more]

Coming to Power (Again): A 1993 Exhibition of Sexually Explicit Feminist Art Still Resonates   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Pnina Jalon Armour, Lynda Benglis, Judith Bernstein, Louise Bourgeois, Ellen Cantor, Patricia Cronin, Mary Beth Edelson, Nicole Eisenman, Nancy Fried, Nan Goldin, Nancy Grossman, G.B. Jones, Doris Kloster, Joyce Kozloff, Zoe Leonard, Monica Majoli, Marilyn Minter, Alice Neel, Lorraine O'Grady, Yoko Ono, Carolee Schneemann, Joan Semmel, Cindy Sherman, Nancy Spero, Hannah Wilke at Maccarone (Morton Street) September 9th - October 16th
Posted 9/23/16

Entering Maccarone Gallery on the evening of the opening for Coming to Power: 25 Years of Sexually X-plicit Art By Women, almost felt like walking into a reunion. This is possibly because the exhibition is a restaging of a 1993 show curated by Ellen Cantor at the then brand new David Zwirner Gallery, but also because there is a level of communal excitement that goes beyond the usual group show fervor. It’s an excitement indicative of the unprecedented effort on the part of Maccarone and six... [more]
