Mexico City) The Plexus series is an ongoing series of installations that explore the implications of thread and fibers as loaded materials that relate to the complicated construction of gender and identity not only in my native Mexico, but throughout the western world. These installations are related as well to the human need for shelter and man’s ultimate vulnerabilit... [more]

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 wi... [more]

Not marble, nor the gilded monuments Of princes, shall outlive this powerful rhyme;But you shall shine more bright in these contents Than unswept stone besmear'd with sluttish time. When wasteful war shall statues overturn, And broils root out the work of masonry, Nor Mars his sword nor war's quick fire shall burnThe living record of your memory. 'Gainst death and all-oblivious enmityShall you pace forth; your praise shall still find roomEven in the eyes of all posterity That wear this world... [more]

Ebbe Stub Wittrup: On Our Worldwide Watchlist  
9/9/11 Posted 9/9/11

(Image: Ebbe Stub Wittrup, installation view (Burning in water, drowning in flames), 2010; © ASBAEK) Ebbe Stub Wittrup (b.1973) Since the end of the 1990s Ebbe Stub Wittrup’s artistic practice has focused on the photographic medium. In his photographs whether we look at his neorealistic snap­shots or the more conceptually oriented photo series we find a mysteriousness that makes one think of a series of narrative parallel worlds. This is reflected quite speci­fically in his latest exhibition,... [more]

Stefania Balestri, Christiana Caro, Fumitaka Kudo, Valerio Ricci, Raffaele Di Vaia at F_AIR - Florence Artist in Residence June 14th, 2011 - July 12th, 2011
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 ea... [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]

Watchlist: Maria Chevska  
7/9/11 Posted 7/9/11

ArtSlant Watchlist: Maria Chevska (Image: Maria Chevska, Eye of the Blackbird, 2011; © Tank Gallery, London) Maria Chevska (b. 1948, Oxford, England) Maria Chevska’s painted cobblestones refer to the materiality of the street. Retrieved from just below the surface of the road, these slightly subterranean objects have considerable gravity as paintings. The painted stripes on the surface of the stones are records of palettes used on her main body of paintings. The cobblestones therefore act as a storage... [more]
