20110609082045-summer_poster All is Vanity  
by
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 each... [more]

Posted 7/17/11

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... [more]

(Image: Lisa Torell, The Image, 2008-2010, 9 (50 x 70) prints; © Lisa Torell) Lisa Torell (b.1972, Göteborg, Sweden) Lisa Torell works with text based installations in which she combines place with language and words, and expressions with images and context. She ties together personal patterns, words and thoughts with issues and structures of society in order to question a normative way of thinking. A recurring thread through her production is her interest in communication and language, both as... [more]

by
Nick Cave at Seattle Art Museum March 10th, 2011 - June 5th, 2011
Posted 4/25/11

The artist Nick Cave has a little something for everybody. Do you like pastel colors and shiny objects? He’s got something for you. How about costume, performance and show? There’s some of that too. Ritual? Craftsmanship? Consumerism? Check.  There are so many cultural references sewn, glued and drilled onto Cave’s sculptures that they explode with social baggage. At the same time they somehow are able to separate from their materials, to discard their connotations and history for a sparkling, os... [more]

(Image: Ettore Spalletti, Rosa, fior di pesco, 2009, © Museum Kurhaus Kleve, Photo: Achim Kukulies, Düsseldorf) Ettore Spalletti (b. 1940, Cappelle sul Tavo, Pescara, Italy) Perhaps no artist today conveys so poetically the precariousness underlying the apparent stability of life and culture than Ettore Spalletti. “Poetically” does not mean softness of thought or the search for elevated but ultimately empty gestures: here it is a question of an artist building a bridge between himself and the w...

by
Sophia Dixon Dillo at Vertical Arts Gallery March 17th, 2011 - March 17th, 2011
Posted 3/17/11

Steamboat Springs — Without light, the color red wouldn’t be red. Blue wouldn’t be blue, and white wouldn’t be white. As Colorado artist Sophia Dixon Dillo studied painting at Colorado State University, she was captured by the perception of art through the reflection, refractions and absorptions of light, and it led her to abandon the paintbrush and try to capture the light as a medium of its own. “Light is ungraspable,” Dillo said. “You don’t see it if you’re not looking for it in a cert...

(Image:Peter Land, Public playground, Utterslev Mose, Denmark, 2010; © Galleri Nicolai Wallner) Peter Land (b. 1966 , Aarhus, Denmark) The Danish artist Peter Land is well-known for his humorous and often self-ironic video art, productions which explore the absurdity of life and man's frequently failed conduct in the world. Peter Land moves freely between video, photo, performance and installation works and more traditional types of work in drawing, gouache and oil paint. I... [more]

Bahrain-based art collective Temporary Artistic Zone put on an impressive third show titled “Don’t strew me with roses after I’m dead” at Al Dar islands this October. May Ashour spoke to members of the collective for a closer look at the work exhibited. A group of young people sporting dreadlocks and swimwear lie sprawled across traditional red-and-black floor cushions on the sand, hiding from the midday sun in the shade of a palm frond wall with photographs mounted on it. A tall, disheveled and... [more]

Ariel Sharon

10/20/10 Posted 10/20/10

Usually Generals and important political figures are immortalized in bronze and displayed in public spaces. But not so for Israel’s Ariel Sharon, who is both. At Tel-Aviv’s Kishon Gallery the retired general and 11th Israeli Prime Minister is shown lying comatose in a hospital bed. Berlin based Israeli artist, Noam Braslavsky, has created an installation that shows Sharon as he is today, almost five years after a stroke that put him on life support in the Tel-Aviv Sheba Medical Centre. He has cr... [more]
