After the first quick round of Art Synthesis, the eyes quickly bookmark certain works and artists for the latter, slower rounds but the mind, hungry for a single thread of narrative, doesn't find any. On contemplation, that turns out to be the mind's problem, not the artists'. So used our minds are with picking up a curator's text on entrance and viewing the entire exhibition through that lense, that they suddenly feel ill-at-ease when they have to be the meaningmakers themselves.

20130127150404-rise-and-shine Me, etc. : Narcissicon by Kiran Subbaiah  
by
Kiran Subbaiah at Chatterjee & Lal Gallery December 21st, 2012 - February 9th, 2013
Posted 4/14/13

Kiran Subbaiah wanted to kill himself in Suicide Note (2006) because that’s the way truly famous people rolled, according to him. While viewing Narcissicon (2012), it seemed that he had made a miserable botch of a suicide.

by
Barbara Ash at Five Forty Five March 8th, 2013 - March 29th, 2013
Posted 3/10/13

Barbara Ash’s recent collection of works challenges stereotypical ideas about women    2/2 "I think it’s depressing that girls are constantly surrounded by messages that are telling them they are not acceptable unless they follow this narrow orthodoxy,” said Barbara Ash, whose sculptures and drawings have strong roots in women’s struggle with the image centric world. “It marginalises the majority and puts a focus on superficial issues rather than in development...
