Posted 4/20/12

OVERLORDS BY TOM ESTES at Interlife Crisis It’s hard to remember a world without the internet. In its current pernicious state of velocity combined with a fathomless audience, the internet has become a dizzying source of daily information. According to a recent survey, we now spend almost half our waking hours either online, on the phone, or watching television. The flow of information has continued unabated and transmission of images has accelerated to become a source of daily reality for most u... [more]

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 with... [more]

(Image: Malick Sidibé, Jeunes Bergers Peuls, 1972 / 2010; © Malick Sidibé) Malick Sidibé (b. 1935, Soloba, Mali) Malick Sidbé’s ebullient images take place in a variety of settings: either outdoors in one of Mali’s newly minted nightclubs, house parties spinning the latest James Brown album, picnics on the bank of the River Niger or indoors at Studio Malick. In 1958, he opened his own studio to take photographs of “Africans for Africans,” and by 1965, the young people knew to go to Studi... [more]

Jorge Molder: On Our Worldwide Watchlist

2/24/12 Posted 2/24/12

(Image: Jorge Molder, Pinocchio, 2009; © Jorge Molder) Jorge Molder (b. 1947, Lisbon) The photography of the Portuguese artist Jorge Molder evokes a world in which memories are interwoven with apparent recognition and dream with meta-reality. Jorge Molder often uses his own image, transforming it to suggest atmospheres that transcend the everyday environment of his life, and staging venues in which people he imagines can appear – his doubles, no doubt, different from him, yet not completel...

(Image: Sissi Farassat, War Carpet, 83 x 50 cm, Swarovsky Crystals on canvas, 2011; © Galerie Kashya Hildebrand) Sissi Farassat (b. 1969, Teheran, Iran) Sissi Farassat’s sewn photographic art may seem idiosyncratic and in its time-consuming production even anachronistic, but it touches and reflects essential aspects of the perception and the aesthetics of the photographic image per se. For example directing the light, which is not only influenced by the technical aspects of taking pictures and... [more]

(Image: Amalie Termannsen, All the People are About Me, 2011; © Amalie Termannsen) Amalie Termannsen (b.1988, Denmark) I have always believed in drawing as the perfect basis for any work I have envisaged. Often, the foundations and research aspect of drawing has taken me to in-depth, conclusive solutions of work I had not imagined. Opened doorways, where I thought it could not take me, surprised by my own outcomes. Drawing, whether it be documentative photography, graphite sketches or mapping for... [more]

Posted 8/2/11

The evening of June 14th hosted the opening of F_AIR's exhibition, The Summer Issue. Entering into a white facade of single, simple pieces, a tone is set and the ambiance thrives in the curiosity of finding further value through the minimum. The artist's stories are not told, their personal theme is not bombarded into the gallery, they only have a single piece of themselves to epitomize their work, and to create a story that ties the show together. Inevitably, the showing of single pieces from each... [more]

by
7/31/11 Posted 7/31/11

(Image: © Halim Al Karim) Halim Al Karim (b.1963, Iraq) The concept of my work is the future mentality of the urban society. I deal with the on- going and unresolved issues of the urban society through my research in the memory layers of the society and my personal experiences in this society. All that is done by trying to avoid the effect of the contemporary elements of brain wash. My Artwork creates visions of violence to be absent from the urban society. By using out of focus techniqu... [more]

Life is short, and we all will die in the end. Sometimes we need reminding of these simple but powerful facts. The vanitas is a genre most associated with religious subject matter. It is included in religious images in order to tell the viewer that since life is short, they have to accept Christ before death, and also to say that there is more to life than just this fragile earthly one. Vanitas can be depicted as something as ephemeral as flowers or rotting fruit, and more often, the skull is use... [more]

(Image: Robert Weingarten, Sonia Sotomayor, 2010; © Robert Weingarten) Robert Weingarten (b. 1941, New York, USA) Robert Weingarten’s photography series The Portrait Unbound represents a bold departure from traditional portraiture. Using layers of imagery that allude to specific interests, achievements or moments within the subject’s life, Weingarten digitally creates large-scale composite images that describe his subjects through biographical rather than physical information. Although photog... [more]
