Sissi Farassat: On Our Worldwide Watchlist  
by
1/4/12 Posted 1/4/12

(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 its co... [more]

8/4/11 Posted 8/4/11

(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 m... [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]

Halim Al Karim: On Our Worldwide Watchlist  
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 technique and covering my images w... [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]

7/16/11 Posted 7/16/11

(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 phot... [more]

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]
