Painter Titus Kaphar rejects the myths of American benevolence  
2/26/15 Posted 2/26/15

Titus Kaphar is perhaps, the most important artist to have exhibited work in New York City this winter. Is that a lofty claim? Probably. Does that bother me? No. Here’s why: The more I learn about the field of contemporary art, the more I learn that it can be a realm far removed from the minutiae of daily life of most people. No city encapsulates this troubling energy more than New York City. The gap between the city’s art world elite and us “regular” folks is wide, my frie... [more]

Birds and Men / 鳥與人 / Vögel und Menschen Oil on Canvas 30" x 40" 2003 With that painting, and several others made in 2003, I started my Apocalypse Series, intended to document human sufferings inflicted by reckless or repressive political, religious or cultural forces. The dire... [more]

Lala Abaddon at Castor Gallery February 26th - March 29th
Posted 2/24/15

Mixing painting and weaving with 35mm photography, Brooklyn-based artist Lala Abaddon creates intricate woven works that “create space and time within a stationary moment” through her use of color and contrast. By cutting printed photographs into hundreds of strips, which she then weaves together, Abaddon creates a deconstructed collage of worldly experience, exemplifying alternate realities of chaos, color, and the universe. Her work dives into the cerebral components of human connecti... [more]

It feels like Havana is having a Belgian moment—and i... [more]

The show came about when curator Susan Isaacs, who teaches at Towson University, "started seeing a trend and realizing that a lot of artists were dealing with spiritual texts," said Gershman executive director Maxine Gaiber. The two worked together to bring the works to Philly." Read more at http://www.phil... [more]

Is Anyone's Art "Original"?  
2/21/15 Posted 2/21/15

I apply oil onto canvas using unusual tools for application. I also try to use imagery that is illrelevent except for the impression it leaves the viewer. Purists want Societies Approval before attempting to communicate in a time-binding manner with the Future Generations that have No Future. I want My imagery to continue to effect social change and solidify My Position of Living in This Constant State of Deterioration of Our Most Sacred Vows. #1 Thou Shall Not Kill #2 Thou Shall Not Steal #3 Tho...

“Kehinde Wiley is everywhere right now,” said Eugenie Tsai, John and Barbara Vogelstein Curator of Contemporary Art, Brooklyn Museum, as the small press tour began. This was not an exaggeration by any means; Wiley garnered recent attention when his paintings appeared as backdrops in Fox's Empire, a highly stylized melodrama from Lee Daniels and Danny Strong that collages black stereotypes while positioning black bodies into a King Lear-like drama, and for his fashion week photoshoot wit...

Language Explored in Kathryn Arnold’s Solo Show By Melissa McKenzie If someone is characterized as “short,” “chipper” or “stubborn,” it will immediately implant an image about the person being described.

About eight years ago, before J.Crew arrived in Toronto, I was having a conversation with a colleague at the University of Toronto. He was an Art History PhD from Ohio, who specialized in medieval Italian church frescoes and dressed like the quintessential preppy yuppie: buttoned-down gingham cotton shirts, khaki pants, Clarks. He complained about how he couldn’t shop in Toronto, because it hadn’t yet caught up with “civilization” by having a J.Crew. Recently, I found myself wander... [more]
