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]

“Guilt is not the curse of the human – the body is.”  
by
8/29/16 Posted 8/29/16

“Guilt is not the curse of the human – the body is.” These words, uttered in 1966, characterized a paradigm shift. These words, especially for women, formed the nucleus of the emergence and omnipotence of sin. As women came into existence, they became the synonym of sin and their bodies the essence of sin. It is not an accident that the woman’s body, rather than the man’s, was framed as sin. Forever, well, ever since forever existed, the man’s body was epitom... [more]

My Favorite Paintings at Xu Beihong Museum in Beijing  
by
8/29/16 Posted 9/1/16

Xu Beihong (1895-1953) was a renown Chinese artist, who was uniquely accomplished in both western oil paintings and traditional Chinese paintings. The museum bears his name, Xu Beihong Museum in Beijing had many of fine representations of his works. One of his most famous oil painting was a portrait titled "Sound of Flute", which, though somewhat veered towards sentimentality, was redeemed by the heroine's shagginess, which transported her to the purer and more primitive and private world. Rather than... [more]

The Parlance of Shanshui: Guan Zhi and His Chinese Traditional Ink Painting in Contemporary Landscape

by Danny Castillones Sillada “You can enjoy a grander sight, / By climbing to a greater height.” ~ Wang Zhihuan, On The Stork Tower Merced, California — One does not only see the flowing or cascading waters but also imagine their origins, how they murmur, drift, and converge in a particular event in space and time, as if the artist had painted hundreds of miles of a meandering river, the waters explode with vivacity on the white plane, capturing their sensuous details in a single pictorial nar...

My Featured Painting: Birches  
by
8/23/16 Posted 8/23/16

Nurtured by many Russian novels while growing up, I developed a special feeling towards the omnipresent birches, which not only aptly set the scenes and evoke the particular melancholy especially associated with Russia and Russian people, and finally, I made effort in 2006 to try to capture such feelings with a painting titled Birches, which is currently showing at the McGuire Real Estate gallery in Berkeley as part of the “Crowded by Beauty” exhibit. I love the slender shapes of the... [more]

My Favorite Paintings at Liaoning Provincial Museum, Shenyang, China  
by
8/19/16 Posted 8/26/16

The main museum in my hometown, Manchurian city Shenyang, Liaoning Provincial Museum, boasted some magnificent artifacts and Chinese paintings, due to the fact that the last imperial dynasty was originated from Manchuria, and had kept a rich trove of art treasures in Shenyang, especially during and after World War II, when Manchu elites retreated back to northeastern China. Like many cities in China, Shenyang has experienced rapid expansion in the last decade or so, resulting in the move of it... [more]

My Favorite Paintings at Pinacoteca Nazionale di Ferrara, Italy  
by
8/10/16 Posted 8/20/16

Pinacoteca Nazionale (National Gallery) di Ferrara, also known as Palazzo dei Diamanti, named for its rusticated façade of diamond spikes, impressed with effortless elegance of the building and its collections. The first striking piece greeted visitors was an "Assunzione di Santa Maria Maddalena" by Maestro della Maddalena Assunta. The highly stylized landscape was an idealized world, where animals, plants, and humans mingled together in harmony. The low vantage point and the r... [more]

My Favorite Sculptures at Palazzo Municipale in Ferrara, Italy  
by
8/3/16 Posted 8/6/16

During my brief day trip to Italian city Ferrara, I admired two bronze sculptures on top of the arch entrance to its Palazzo Municipale (City Hall) — Arco del Volto del cavallo (Arch of Horse Front). On the left, there was the seated statesman Duca Borso d'Este & Marchese Niccolo III d'Este and on the right, equestrian sculpture of Marchese Niccolo III d'Este. Of these two equally impressive sculptures, the more flamboyant equestrian made more immediate impressions. The overt masculinity and grandeur was reflected with his insolen... [more]

My Favorite Paintings at Palazzo D'Accursio (Palazzo Comunale), Bologna  
by
7/27/16 Posted 8/1/16

The Palazzo D'Accursio (Palazzo Comunale) in Bologna hosted a large museum with amazing art collections. Among numerous interesting works, I found two portraits most engaging. One was "Ritratto di vecchino (Portrait of an Old Man)" by Jacopo Robusti, known as Tintoretto. This portrait presented a robust old man with a striking set of abundant white beard, contrasting and echoing the black cap atop his broad forehead. The unwavering, penetrating, yet not-unkind gaze of this old man told... [more]

The vessel was named for the Wenatchi people who originally lived in the shadow of the Columbia and Wenatchee Rivers in Eastern Washington State. We are riding on a ship of memory. In the Yakama language, wenatchi means "river flowing from can... [more]
