Calling Me Home by Suzy Smith oil on canvas 24x24 Please tell us about your current body of work. My current body of work focuses on the idealized female figure in front of an iconic artwork, which allows me to not only pay homage to my favorite artists, but to paint in different styles, contrasting figures with background. It may be that the background is painted with thick paint that allows for a difference in textures, or it may be that a complex, or organic design adds to the sensual... [more]

A Change is Gonna Come Solo exhibition Marco Pezzotta (1985)Curated by Bogomir Doringer *** The artistic interest from Marco Pezzotta lays in examining different systems in which our identity is being either formed or changed. We stand in those systems as individuals or as part of a group. For describing and shaping these relations Marco Pezzotta uses objects that function as tools for a narrative. They appear from another space and time, floating between digital and physical. The artist creates... [more]

C/O Berlin recently moved to its new home, the Amerika Haus, a 1950s architectural trademark that saw little of the vicious consumerism and booming hedonism that characterized the so-called "Swinging 60s," yet plays perfect host to an exhibition centered on the era. C/O's current exhibition Blow-Up revolves around Italian director Michelangelo Antonioni's iconic 1966 film of the same name. Photography’s ability to picture reality is challenged both in the movie, as well as in the exhibiti... [more]
