The Art of Creation: Development of The Floor Show Exhibit Photo by Arthur Kozlovski Most people view an art show as a complete entity, with walls perfectly aligned with paintings, floors decorated with sculptures, tables loaded with fancy champagne and cheese. These facets are all part of the final presentation of an exhibition, but the process for this production is one that takes a lot of time, patience, and creativity in its own respect. Last week, I was lucky enough to be involved wi... [more]

Jonathan Monaghan at Curator's Office January 14th, 2012 - February 18th, 2012
Posted 1/23/12

By John Anderson • January 20, 2012 A piece of advice before you step into Curator’s Office to watch Jonathan Monaghan’s new work of digitally animated video art: Suspend your ninja logic. Fans of Mortal Kombat will remember Sub-Zero as a silent masked combatant who fires ice projectiles from his hands, but in Monaghan’s video, “Sacrifice of the Mushroom Kings,” the ninja assassin has all the gusto of a bored kid at scout camp, seated in the gun turret of a Sherman tank, scrolling through his sm...

I am throughly satisfied to announce that this representation of New and Original Images by Mr. Taylor shows exactly that there exists talent Undiscovered, and Beauty in simplicity and harmonic color application. The Ignorance on The Planet with Humanities Focus on War, and Misery is non-existant in this Gallery's approach toward Sanity. Feel The Love, and Comfort brought on by the application of pigment unto canvas in a symbolic representation of using Images To Form Communication That Stimulates Th... [more]

The Virtues of Working around the 'Limitations' of a Small Studio  
BARBARA GRAD at Kemper at the Crossroads February 4th, 2011 - May 28th, 2011
Posted 2/11/11

Abstract landscapes imbued with the presence of video gaming and cartography is seen throughout new and recent paintings from Barbara Grad. The layers and clues found in these works have a kinetic energy that strongly invokes a line from the “The Have Nots” by the great American punk band X: “This is the game that moves as you play.” One example of this well-conceived idea is prominently found in Erosion (2008, oil on canvas). Mostly blue in color, a small shock of bright pink asks us to p... [more]

A Paean to Family History and a Serious Exercise in Ancestor Worship  
Misha Kligman at Kansas City Artists Coalition December 10th, 2010 - January 15th, 2011
Posted 12/23/10

Originally published in Art Tattler ( By Blair Schulman New work by Misha Kligman at Kansas City Artists Coalition shows us the weariness of a world where the past is always following you. Paintings and drawings of muted or obscured figures take us into a negative space allowing viewers to avoid confrontation with the subject matter. It seems easier to absorb Kligman’s take on displacement and genocide when you cannot meet the terror in their eyes. His use of exhausting colors... [more]

The opening night began before I even entered the Moderna Building, outside a large crowd of people from the students to the dressed to impress mingling on the lower platform and crowding on the stairs -  some venturing through the very imposing doors (Doors of education and knowledge, their stature indicating that something special is about to be revealed, double doors so heavy I nearly disjoint my arm to get through), and alongside the obvious audio system that is set out along the front of the bu...
