Dear Friends, I'm happy to be writing to you from Trondheim, Norway, a small, remote city and ancient Viking capital which receives very little daylight during the entire month of December. This is part of the draw for me as I make new work in a studio donated by LKV, where I am in the company of about 36 fellow artists from Norway and other parts of the world.It's hard to believe that I will be exhibiting already this Friday at Galeri Babel, just down the street from LKV, with New York ar...

        It's not all blood, guts, and glory. Sometimes: it's just blood and guts. In Joshua Hagler's exhibit at Frey Norris, he explores the myth and fetishization of the unreal purity of the "virgin" through very graphic and sometimes obscene renderings of religious sin. The virgin in history has been the martyr. A human sacrifice to God. They give themselves unto another (in marriage, this other is the flesh and not the deity) and are constantly idolized as pure creatures. If this giving-u... [more]
