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]
Welcome to the first installation of the Artslant podcast series, Working (it) Out . My name is Gillian Dykeman, I'm a visual artist living in Toronto, Ontario. This summer, I am interviewing artists to ask about the role of audience in their practice. Each interview will begin with one question "Does art require an audience?". This was a question that came up in the Fieldwork seminar class I took this year in the Masters of Visual Studies program at the University of Toronto. Initially, the an... [more]
In recent times, people are adding extra features to the windows of their houses and offices, apart from designing them in variety of shapes. There are casement windows as well as sliding windows. For all kinds of windows, glazing has become quite common these days. With this technique, there is a coating applied over the glass panes, which will help in providing proper insulation. People can get this kind of insulation done for their windows, but a better decision can be reached by properly chec... [more]

"Oh God, it's coming up now, I recognise the sound... I mean, I don't need to see this when I'm at work!"
We looked on fearfully as a larger-than-life penis appeared stage left in profile and decanted a trickle of urine onto an unsuspecting potted plant.
The double screen projection of her film, was, for me, the culmination of the penis problematic in Double Trouble, the only comprehensive institutional presentation of Sturtevant's work in her homeland since 1973.
Her work is resurfacing now (see our... [more]

In early 2012 Icelandic post-rock band Sigur Rós challenged filmmakers to create videos for their album Valtari. Photographer Ryan McGinley chose the song “Varúð,” an eight-minute dream narrated by a raspy head voice over an unsteady piano and transparent strings. In his video a barefoot girl in a glittery gold wig and a washed-out blue nightie skips through the streets of New York City in slow motion. She passes trucks, taxicabs, construction workers, and business men, m... [more]

Walking through UCLA's graduate studios in Culver City one Saturday evening is a like walking through a giant sprawling work in process, something artists rarely make in public, because it's messy, untuned, revealing in its imperfection, and of course, just incomplete. All the shabby studentness of the event contributed to the rawness of the works: half names scrawled on doors, crates of beers, some cheese and crackers warming on the floor of an installation. Compared to the professional patina... [more]
In the studio searching for connections in abstract imagery…
As I investigate the contemporary approach to drawing, I am searching for connections in the abstract imagery created through my drawing processes. In order to ‘make sense’/find significance in these marks on a page, I’m using colour. Pareidolia is still one of the main discourses involved in my work.
Currently, opposite colours (‘complimentary colours’) are being used to connect all the elements o... [more]
