(Image: Claire Reid, The Squirrel, Oils on Canvas, 20 X 20 X 1.5 Inches; © Claire Reid) Claire Reid (b. 1973, south shields) I am a self taught award winning Artist from Tyne and Wear and I have loved art since I was a young.

20140313014942-kunstsammlung_k20_malewitsch_01 A Symbol of a Future World  
by
Wassily Kandinsky, Kasimir Malevich, Piet Mondrian at K20 GRABBEPLATZ April 5th - July 6th
Posted 4/9/14

White is the first thing that strikes one entering the Infinite White Abyss at K20 Grabbeplatz. Not necessarily Kandinsky’s white, although his masterpiece greets the visitor, but rather the white of the exhibition space itself, an island of haute-design white floating in the middle of a black gallery cube. Also, watch your step – the white space is necessarily and symbolically raised just 3 cm above floor level and that edge is (perhaps also symbolically) unmarked. Falling unwarned... [more]

Your Favorite Disney Villains as World Leaders  
by
4/5/14 Posted 4/5/14

Saint Hoax is at it again, this time serving us world leaders as Disney villains. The Middle-Eastern artist (he hasn’t revealed his real name or where he lives) caught our attention when he turned world leaders into drag queens (now available as sweatshirts) and then into blow-up sex dolls. He rewrites history through visual lies, calling the work “POPlitical." In this latest iteration exploring the performativity of global politics, Saint Hoax imagines Sarah Palin as Cruella de Vil,...

Tom Estes at El Cosmico March 30th - April 3rd
Posted 4/3/14

The Biennial Project’s Marfa Artist Residency provides an international artist with the opportunity to participate in a career-making event. It took over a year of intense fundraising from local and international private patrons for BRMAC to realize the Marfa Digital Residency (http://the-biennial-project.com/blogengine.net/post/2014/01/11/.aspx).Now, you may ask, why Marfa, Texas? And for those of you who might not know – prepare to get all fired up, because the tiny town of Marfa, perched on the high plains of the Chihuahua desert, is nothing less than an art’s world station of the cross, like Art Basel or Doc...

Even though I especially enjoy still life photography I like getting out of the studio and exploring. Texture and abstractions of all kinds fascinate me. The play of light and shadow as well as nature's weathering of objects left to ruin create such stunning compositions. In searching for... [more]

Ryan Reggiani at Hap Gallery March 6th - March 29th
Posted 3/26/14

New York City-based artist Ryan Reggiani fills the gallery with an accomplished selection of works across a diverse range of media. The elegant sculpture "Untitled (Hanging)" employs straight and curved steel rods in immaculate counterposition. There is a sense of whimsy in another set of wall sculptures comprised of light bulbs and electrical cords within a metal frame. In a dramatic suite of standing concrete sculptures, the artist has stacked hollow forms around a central axis of metal rods, de... [more]

(Image: Adam de Neige, untitled, 2014, Oil on canvas, 100 x 80cm; © Adam de Neige) Adam de Neige (b. 1987, Teheran , Iran) The idea of still life and its codes of representation is one the bases of my creative process. I’m treating body and object as the same. They constitute two parts of a relation and they influence each other. Each artwork shows some fragments of this relation in B&W shades, without any background and uncontextualized. The different parts of body (ex: mout... [more]
