Larissa Aharoni “Vivi Sepultura” - F_AIR
November 26, 2013 - February 14, 2014
Larissa Aharoni's immersive video installation “Vivi Sepultura”, her first video-project and conclusive work of her residency stay at F_AIR, is a meditation on the sense of individual responsibility for all human beings and a condition of memory.

Born a sixth generation Texan to a working-class family in 1958, Mr. Kroll’s passion for art was evident at an early age.

My paintings are brought to life by critical observation, personal experience, memory and reactions to events. They become a metaphor for personal emotions and external perceptions, but on a broader level integrate the personal with wider questions, political and social.
Using organic forms found in the figure as a source, the work is informed by nature, science and the potentia... [more]

Kathryn Hart’s art reflects the human condition — all of its crags, crevices, revelations and secrets — and her belief in an endless ability to rise from the ashes.
Her mixed media works seep with raw, personal history, but the stories are timelessly relevant. They exude a sense of loss, longing and an ultimate conviction in renewal. Hart’s current work searches for... [more]

My work is a reflection of my life. I base my paintings on photographs taken on my travels as well as family photos gathered throughout the years. My interior scenes are taken from personal surroundings or something that just catches my eye. A diverse range of material provides the collective history from which I draw upon in my paintings. Through this visual reconstruction of my life I have created my own scrapbook... [more]
For the month of November, ROY G BIV Gallery for Emerging Artists features an exhibition of photography by Jesse Kuroiwa and Nick George. Both artists challenge the possibilities of the photographic medium, either by questioning its claim to objectivity or by grounding artistic practice in its fundamental processes.
Jesse Kuroiwa excavates unseen pasts in his photographs of barren American landscapes. He includes captions describing stories and events of Japanese internment in relation to the sett... [more]

My friend John Baldessari and I go around the galleries nearly every Saturday afternoon, and we often divide the artists whose works we’ve seen that day into those who seemed to enjoy making their work and those who didn’t. Julika Lackner enjoys making her work. It shows in the consistency of each painting’s tone and application, and in all that undermines and plays around with that... [more]

Her show, “Re: Reading the Love Letter,”intimates how this is particularly true for personalcorrespondence, a form of communication certainly notimmune to the vicissitudes of translation. And it is onlymade more perplexing when the word becomes art.
