(Image: Fintan Whelan, Temptation, 2014, Mixed media on wooden panel, 40 x 50 x 1 centimeters; © Fintan Whelan) Fintan Whelan (b. 1967, Dublin) For Fintan Whelan, embracing abstraction does not mean a departure from the representational world. Instead, his painting is based on a dialectic principle that facilitates association with the world of things. At times, we seem to recognise a horizon, a reflection, a shadow, with space being split up into the different levels, calling for a di... [more]

(Overpass), 2011, EPS foam, model terrain, mixed media, 16 x 22 x 32 inches; © Mark Schatz) Mark Schatz (b. 1975) Frequently utilizing existing spaces, simple construction materials, and accumulations of castoff materials, Mark tries to evoke something deeply familiar in surprising ways. He acknowledges and even relishes the fragmentation, distortion, and reinvention of remembered places. Mark Schatz's work spans sculptu... [more]

(Image: Stacie Uhinck Rose, Within Reach, 2013, Mixed media on wood, 30 x 48; © Stacie Uhinck Rose) Stacie Uhinck Rose (b. Akron, Ohio) These recent abstractions are process driven and intuitively born. They were made while reflecting on structure, organized systems, accumulation and the unpredictable human element. There is a layering up of the recent past as we rebuild, rebrand, acquire and replace. This group of works alternately expose the stratum of what lies beneath the new as w... [more]

Krakow Erects A Bright Yellow Statue of Lenin Peeing  
by
6/13/14 Posted 6/13/14

Yep, a fluorescent chartreuse yellow statue of Lenin awkwardly holding his thing and peeing has come to Pole-land. According to The Independent (which mistakenly reported the statue being "fluorescent green"), the 'pubic' statue of Lenin was erected as part of Krakow's 6th Grolsch ArtBloom Festival in its eastern Nowa Huta district. The so-called Fountain of the Future stands in a place where another statue of Lenin was before it was dismembered in 1989 (and later bought by a Swedish millionai... [more]

(Image: Alexandra Rozenman, Stay Still, 2011, Oil on Canvas, 42x36"; © Alexandra Rozenman) Alexandra Rozenman (b. 1971, Moscow, Russia) My work expresses longing for understanding and being understood, for non-belonging and finding a place to be. Playfulness in my work points to instability of life – visually, culturally and literally. I am working playing on the conflicts between identity and assimilation, tradition and modernity. Using recognizable sets from popular tales, plac... [more]

I’m constantly in the process to find a visual language that seem to be always changing from one w... [more]

(Image: Vojtech Mica, Budka II.Kiosk II., 2010, beton/concrete, 230 x 110 x 110; © Vojtech Mica) Vojtech Mica (b. 1966, Prague) My work consists of parallel, seemingly disparate lines, which collide one with another and complement each other. Despite first sight, everything faces the certain defining of my sculpture form. I compose the space and the space forms me, myself. The seeming serenity of one form is the exact print of the Dionysian pole of another form. The viewer himself... [more]

by
Andy Vogt at Hap Gallery May 1st - May 31st
Posted 5/21/14

San Francisco-based artist Andy Vogt turns plywood and other salvaged wood into the stuff of sculptural perfection. But this is no polished, gleaming perfection—rather, a weathered, beaten-down beauty. He arranges strips of wood into dynamic, delightful compositions, as if he were deconstructing Sol LeWitt’s cubes and reconfiguring them to decorate a New England barn. The show’s most striking work, Sustained Decay, seems a direct translation of the nimbus beams radiating down on... [more]
