ROMANOVA SVETLANA-ART  
by
3/31/20 Posted 3/5/09

         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]

Araki: An Exhibitionist Looking Death in the Eye   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Nobuyoshi Araki at Foam - Fotografie Museum December 19th - March 11th, 2015
Posted 12/22/14

In the film After Life (1998) by Kore-eda Hirokazu the recently deceased end up on a minimalist film set. In this purgatory they discuss and improvise with their fellow travelers until they have decided on the ultimately defining moment of their lives. They re-enact it and then pass over to whatever paradise or nothingness may be waiting for them. One by one the dead come to terms with what they’ve left behind. Except for one, who can’t decide. That guy could have been Nobuyoshi Araki.... [more]

Alternative Waters: a Personal View of Recent Macri Portraits by Kenneth Radu  
by
12/6/14 Posted 12/6/14

Part I People familiar with Adamo Macri’s portraits may well experience an aesthetic shock to see a picture of the artist with his eyes wide open. So many of his self-portraits depict the eyes averted, lowered, askance, or rarely looking directly at the viewer that I was taken aback by a recent picture, entitled Damo, 2013. There are a few other pictures in his Facebook oeuvre wherein the artist opens his eyes and stares out of the canvas, Self-Portrait, 2013, for example, but that is... [more]

Conceptual Art Legend Stephen Kaltenbach in Conversation  
by
11/24/14 Posted 11/24/14

Chicago: In September of 2013 I sat down with the legendary Stephen Kaltenbach on the occasion of his exhibition at Bert Green Fine Art in Chicago to talk about his role in the history of conceptual art, his drastic 25-year recess from the art world, and his ideas about the nature of art. Kaltenbach’s work ranges from discrete objects, anonymous magazine ads, and mysterious time capsules to figurative sculpture, regionalist art, and shaping life narratives through various personae. Stephen Ka... [more]

Post-Capitalist Hip Hop Videos: Our Absurd, Dystopian World   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Posted 11/20/14

Hip Hop and capitalism could be said to share the same ideals. American Hip Hop and the American Dream promote the same goal of self-made material success through carefree consumerism. Money—and spending it—saturates songs and artist monikers (Curren$y, Rich Gang, 50 Cent, All$tar, etc.). Hip Hop’s aesthetic identity has traditionally communicated just as much about consumerist society as its songs. But as confidence in capitalism is waning, with the mass disillusionment followi...

Aloha from My Enlightened Studio, After a Lifetime of Rejection in all My Social Circles & Abuse by All My Children, X-wives, Siblings and Close & Distant Relatives I Found a Safe Harbor Here in Hilo, where I can Create Imagery, How, When & Why I Choose, that is not influenced by any outside forces. It is Trully "Original" and I am a Master of Application. 60,000 years ago, a cave man using blood, pigments, animal & human feces, plant and fish material to create Cave Paintings started "ART" whic...

GCC, a collective of eight artists largely of Kuwaiti origin have installed Micro Council, a doll-sized replica of the table in the center of an otherwise empty and sterile exhibition space at Sharjah Art Foundation.

Artistic adventure fallen flat

Ren Adams at New Grounds Print Workshop and Gallery October 3rd - October 31st
Posted 11/13/14

Can graphic design ever truly be considered as a fine art form? Ren Adams has taken on that question by exploring the combination of printmaking and digital media into a collection of surreal two-dimensional images called “Alchemy of Image/The Language of Information Space.” These graphic pieces are striking aesthetically, yet leave something to be desired after initial observation. Adams blends an interest in history, science, technology, art, and basically everything about the... [more]

Con Artist presents ISO 216, a collaboration between artists from New York and London. Named in honor of the world’s most common paper size ratio which, like so many of global standards of weights and measure, is notably rare in the US, ISO 216 celebrates the cultural parallels and unique individuality of the United Kingdom and United States. The two nations are ethnically diverse, share a common language, and are each massive exporters of art and culture, but as their slightly different pa... [more]

Recently, a “Stereotypes of the Netherlands” map made its rounds on the Internet, describing how the Dutch conceptualize their small country’s terrain. Down south, in the middle of Brabant’s “Catholic Carnival Country,” a short distance from “Dumb People, Great Beer” (apologies, Belgium), is the technological oasis of “Philipstown,” so named for the diversified technology mega-corporation. If the city is known for innovation in technology and indu... [more]

Good evening, art-appreciators! Please pull up a Beuysian chair, with a heap of fat on it, because I have something to ask you: Had a good Frieze, did you, reader? Drank some complimentary champagne? Saw at least one instance of 'is this art'? Hung out at Selfridges Hotel, in a dress with spaghetti straps? Wore a black smock instead—normcore style? Said the words "art market," and didn't even flinch at how serious you were about it? Listened, once, "ironically," to "Anaconda" by Nicki Minaj a... [more]

30 Years of The Turner Prize: 10 Most Notorious Entries

Duncan Campbell, Ciara Phillips, James Richards, Tris Vonna-Michell at Tate Britain 10/19/14 Posted 10/19/14

It's Turner Prize time again. Britain’s most hated art award celebrates its 30th year this year. What has it achieved in over three decades? For one thing – its brought contemporary British art to the public attention – mostly to be lampooned by the tabloids. Who can forget headlines surrounding Tracey Emin’s winning entry My Bed (dubbed ‘My Turd’ by Private Eye) or the fury roused by Damien Hirst’s formaldehyde tiger shark entry in 1992? The “national joke” has provoked walk outs and protests (the Stuckist... [more]

ART-DO YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT?  
by
10/18/14 Posted 10/18/14

I have been a creative person since I was allowed to use crayons! Creating things that I could play with or use in my grade school assignments from what I colored or designed was my escape... I would look for paper scraps, cardboard, fabric and really anything that I could incorporate into my final production or should I say, self-made "trophy" that I would later share with family members. In grade school we created what was known as a "diarama" which consisted of a shoebox that I had the task o... [more]
