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 plasticit... [more]

It gets pretty steamy...
Imagine going to the theatre in a bathrobe. Rashid Johnson's production of Amiri Baraka's 1964 play Dutchman—commissioned by Performa in New York last year and performed again this last weekend in Chicago for EXPO Art Week—brings its audience to a bath house, evoking the hot and sticky subway setting in which the play takes place, and physically heightening the tension of the play's content. Caroline Picard reports back from hau... [more]

The long stretch of Santa Monica where I once-upon-a-time commuted from a humble craftsman with more roommates than there were rooms to a chi-chi boutique where the diamonds in my charge were given more room to breathe than my fellow tuna-canned bus passengers pressed together in mutually unsatisfactory intimacy. The mood, demeanor, and politics of any given day were, to an extent, influenced by the mode of transportation that morning: bus, bike, lurchy pre-owned vehicle about the same age as m... [more]
Theory of Recessions: According to Me
We can reverse a recession by raising consumer consumption or investment. Revised fiscal policy, such as the current stimulus plan, or revised monetary policy, such as the purchase of my portrait painting ("Meditation" by Ed Belbruno), should help cure the economy. -Liz Terry [more]

Visual data culled through transitions, his paintings seem coy or perhaps indifferent to what Donald Judd described as “specific” in his seminal 1965 essay Specific Objects. While influenced by post war conceptual art, Taite’s own work feels of the moment with a cut-and-paste aesthetic; sources are loose and refreshed often. His practice prompts associations with a continuum of artists playing with architecture... [more]
