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.

The first time I heard the words “abstract expressionism” I was in New York, trying to grab another day of leave before the army shipped me overseas. At that time in 1952, while browsing through Greenwich Village, I came upon The Cedar Tavern. “That’s where the abstract expressionists raise hell,” a sophomore girl from Barnard told me. “If you’re interested in art, that’s where the action is.”
Well, my interest was piqued, but time rushed in... [more]

The history of eyeglasses goes back almost a thousand years.
In his Book of Optics, dated 1021, the Arab scientist Alhazen had already mentioned the use of a convex lens to enlarge images. The translation of this treatise into Latin led to the invention of magnifying glasses held together by a frame in thirteenth century Italy. The earliest depiction of someone wearing glasses, Tommaso da Modena’s portrait of a Dominican cardinal, dates from 1352. Since then corrective eyewear has been s... [more]
Upon entering Rodney McMillian: Views from Main Street at the Studio Museum in Harlem, brisk piano notes float out over the exhibition space followed by an almost euphoric serenade by Erykah Badu. Her voice is emanating from a video near the entrance of the gallery where a T-Rex puppet bops around a stage singing along, mouthing out every trill with his toothy jaw gaping open and shut. On the puppet-sized podium hangs a banner reading “The Neshoba County Fair Assc.—Giant House Party... [more]
Nathaniel Mary Quinn’s fragmented portraits recall his childhood growing up in the Robert Taylor Homes, a notorious housing project in Chicago. His new series Highlights, now on view at M+B in Los Angeles, features highly personal works that reflect on his upbringing and the people he knew who were able to escape the violence and poverty so many experienced in the now demolished project.
Though his pieces resemble collages, they are in fact improvised paintings. Quinn does not do initial sketches of his... [more]
