The actual process might take a lot of time, but it is the act of painting that I enjoy the most.

Forgotten time capsule found in Boston lion sculpture  
9/25/14 Posted 9/25/14

via Wikimedia Commons When copper statues of a gold lion and silver unicorn were installed above Boston's Old State House in 1901, the majestic creatures weren’t the only objects left for posterity. Inside the lion’s head was a sealed copper box filled with “things that will prove interesting when the box is opened many years hence,” wrote The Boston Globe at the time. The future is now. Earlier this month the lion and unicorn sculptures—emblems representing the b... [more]

Posted 9/11/14

Reverberations: Contemporary Abstractions on view at Able Fine Art NY Gallery in Seoul presents the work of three accomplished international artists. Adel Gorgy, Miyako Aoki and Marsha Solomon are masters of abstraction, yet each possesses a unique vision and voice. When seen together, it is clear that the voices speak to one another. There is a sense of accord, through the shared language of non-representational art. A musical note, a drop of water, a memory - all of these are sources and exp... [more]

Carver Hill has opened up their well-lit space with some clever structural changes and interior colours, and Daniel Anselmi's art appears all the stronger for the gallery giving over its entire space to this exhibition; a delightful surprise for the visitor and a clever way of creating a journey through the paintings, collages, and assemblages on the first floor, towards the Monhegan Island Series of monotypes on the second floor. The work in the lower gallery feels like the vibrant big brot... [more]

I work in the tradition of abstract surrealism. My paintings and drawings combine automatism with elements of landscape and the figure. They are improvised from simple charcoal outlines and then combined with the direct application of paint onto raw canvas. The meaning of the forms changes with ea... [more]
