Hello frends! I am an artist. My roots take place in St.Petersburg, which has great architecture, culture and history that influenced me once and forever. Today, in the times of technical progress, mass production and new artificial materials I search for inspiration in the foundation of the Arts - old Russian Orthodox icons, Renaissance and folk cultures. I seek out look for new shapes and images within my themes using different materials, but my favorite is glass for its plasticity and abi... [more]
TODD WILLIAMSON and GREG WALTER: ARTE DE CAMERA By Peter FrankThe courtship dance between visual art and music has gone on almost as long as has human creativity. Unlike the other art forms, which engage multiple senses and complex cognitive and social conditions, music and visual art stimulate singular responses in humans – visual art acting upon the eyes, music upon the ears. They therefore present themselves as entirely d... [more]

Last week, UC Berkeley's Berkeley Art Museum / Pacific Film Archive opened its new building to guest. Thursday was the gala opening day for donors; Friday, opening day for students; Saturday for members of the Museum/Archive; and Sunday, a community open house. I visited the Museum on 30 January, Saturday and it was nice to see so many members and their families and friends exploring the space and artworks on display. The place was full of excitement and high energy but the visitors d... [more]
Forced migration is an ugly concept. It ignites scenes of despondent, displaced refugees; of genocide; of family members being killed simply for their political ideology.
This piece, 'Slave Ship,' was created by David Settino Scott in San Miguel, in memory of James Bird Jr.

Few things could be as topical. The image-culture created out of broadcast television’s commoditized framing of electoral coverage is precise, yet entirely ubiquitous. Kathryn Andrews’ Run for President, currently on view at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, pictures the hamster wheel of these aesthetic politics.
Under the premise of a fictive presidential campaign, Andrews uses Bozo the Clown as the central figure within her electoral landscape. The personas born from Bozo represent... [more]

There is perennial tension between the line of “progress” and infinite irretrievability and the circle (cycle) of repeating patterns; humans, in ongoing rebellion against the forward arrow, use all available tools to create and preserve the always-receding past. Closing on January 10, two exhibitions at Montreal's Musée d'art contemporain (MAC) work together to acutely frame their own dialogue about time, materiality, and the role of the museum in protecting and destroying it.

The rug is a sort of garden that can move across space. –Michel Foucault
While the invention of the garden was a product of the Orient, its form is now widely replicated, adapted, and distributed across cultures. The forms it takes can be beautiful, or benign—from Japanese karesansui and perfectly manicured English courts to sterile pre-fabricated suburban lots, with conventional evergreens growing against cement paths.
The first carpet was invented in an attempt to recrea... [more]

It is hard to take any exhibition with a grandiose title such as Photography Since the Millennium seriously, but then again, we are just fifteen years into this new millennium.
And there have not been any major strides in photography since the new millennium except for, well, the death of analogue, and video is accessible to all. Goodbye film, hello pixels. Has there been one year since the new millennium that has not seen a new release of cameras with enhanced numbers of pixels? It is the mega... [more]
When I was younger, my parents spent an exorbitant amount of time shopping at the department store Sears. It was one of the kid-in-tow errands I most detested. As a child, I considered this habitat overwhelming and exhausting: the overzealous salespeople, the crowds, the smells of new products and open boxes, the corny advertisements, the endless special offers. From entrance to exit, accompanying my parents on their routine department store escapade was a first-hand lesson in what I now know to be... [more]
