(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]

I started working in watercolors and graduated to oils 15 years ago. I love the flow of the paint and the endless opportunities for creativity. I’ve had the honor of being invited to China and Australia to show my paintings. How does my art affect you? Does it make you smile or raise your blood pressure? Does it make y... [more]

This helps me to express my way of perceiving reality around me, not only my joy, love, happiness but also common fears and misunderstanding around us. Geometry helps m... [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]

Her portrait series shows well known writers, poets and musicians that arouse rapport and admiration in her and a desire to express the feelings that their work and personality evokes in her. Her surrealistic “Time” series explores the relationship between man and t... [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]

photo via Famed artist, "body awareness" theorist, and Austria's "Grand Dame of painting" Maria Lassnig passed away earlier this week in Vienna at the age of 94. Lassnig, born in Austria in 1919, attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna during World War II and is known for her brushy paint strokes and brutal subject matter. Lassnig used painting to explore the human body and psyche, illustrating a critical and sometimes gruesome subjectivity. She herself was often the object of her critical eye. Her l... [more]

I, then, decided to paint them one by one on canvas. My work has experienced a huge transformation and I have been through a variety of periods, techniques and styles. I have had exhibitions in Spain, mainly i... [more]
