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 plasticity and abi... [more]

Shahkaar - In Conversation with Sumaya Durrani  
by
12/1/16 Posted 2/11/16

As we flock around her right after our final MA Visual Arts First Year Juries and I request some time for an interview as directed by my professor Sir Quddus Mirza (Editor of ArtNow), there is a yes and a no in the answer that I get. The word enigmatic is a constant in all the published material that I’ve read about Sumaya Durrani in my humble quest to know a bit about her and we, the visual arts Master's students frozen in the space of her eloquence, are proof that it’s true. Dur... [more]

Where Is the Beach? Is It Under the Paving Stones?   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Posted 8/16/16

The very notion is deeply romantic. A location of perfect tension, where the weather is honest and the sounds are cyclical. The Beach is that point in space where time and energy laps onto a surface, reworking it; constructing and deconstructing; giving and taking away. No less romantic is the notion that a “beach” surrounds us all under the tiles, asphalt, and paving stones of the city, beneath the constructs of our society. That it is always there, ever present, pushing up against th... [more]

Posted 8/1/16

On the Front Lines by Jillian Russo | June 9, 2015 Since the passage of the GI Bill during World War II, thousands of veterans have studied at the Art Students League of New York. Returning World War II veterans rejuvenated the League, making it a site of experimentation and an incubator for postwar artists. The GI Bill made an art education accessible to those who might not otherwise have become engaged in the field, and the influx of students strengthened an ambitious community.... [more]

Featured Painting – “Forest Within” – When Reality Met Illusion  
by
7/19/16 Posted 7/19/16

My 2005 oil painting Forest Within, currently showing at the McGuire Real Estate gallery in Berkeley as part of the “Crowded by Beauty” exhibit, is a play of optical illusion - the painting is a seemingly outdoor scene, yet the landscape is framed within a boxy confinement, and beams of light cast from behind and the shadows fall on the real or imaginary wall further enhances the blur of the boundary, where interior met exterior, reality met illusion. Forest Within Oil on Canvas 24" x 30" Completed in 2005 Originally posted on matthewfelixsun.com... [more]

Macri’s Orgasmic Forge by Kenneth Radu  
by
7/17/16 Posted 7/17/16

The night is thick with heat and windless humidity. I am restless and stimulated, my body temperature rising in the dark room as I stare at and am consumed by an extraordinary Macri image: Drop Curtain. I have no idea what Macri intends by this image, his title notwithstanding, but I mean to write what it means to me because I cannot quench the fire in my bones until I do so. We don’t need to know what an artist “meant” in order to understand what the art means to us, and it... [more]

So-Called "Artist" Laura Lima Is One Sick Puppy BY URI DOWBENKO  
by
7/9/16 Posted 7/9/16

(JULY 2016) MIAMI INSTITUTE OF CONTEMPORARY ART (sic sic sic) -- So when is "art" not art? When it's a cynical publicity stunt masquerading as "art." Take for example Laura Lima, who claims to be a performance artist. However she didn’t want to stick a cord up her vagina for her "art" – so she hired some Craigslist slave-labor girls to do it for her. However -- they didn’t think it was cool at all… and they publicly said so This was first reported by the Miami... [more]

Contemporary Eve - The Moon Made Me Do It  
by
7/6/16 Posted 7/6/16

The Moon Made Me Do It Acrylic on Wood 65" x 53" x 2" This primal portrait represents the sexual angst of the biblical Eve. Originally, the inspiration was from my friend who desperately yearns for sexual liberation but is chained to a lackluster marriage. She modeled for me with the caveat that her identity would be disguised. Using a neo-expressionist attitude, and playing off Munch’s Scream, I morphed her identity with Eve’s to protect her from her husband but also to express the ultimat... [more]

Looking at, and Through, Photography   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
Ivan Iannoli at Bass & Reiner Gallery June 10th - July 9th
Posted 7/5/16

Ivan Iannoli uses photography as a catalyst. He uses its unique scientific, artistic, and mechanical histories: as the standardization of the width of a film negative begat photographic paper sizes; as precut acrylic sheets fit perfectly into manufactured frames; as the industrial revolution set into motion the uniformity of items that were previously made to order. He taps into the ways in which artists before him have advanced photography beyond its material constraints—in the way that, sa... [more]

Sam Lewitt's Temperature-Raising Intervention Is More Than a Hot Take   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Sam Lewitt at Swiss Institute June 8th - July 24th
Posted 6/29/16

The temperature in New York had reached the low 80s when I schlepped downtown for Sam Lewitt's Less Lights Warm Words at the Swiss Institute. Entering the gallery, which is nestled between the frenzy of Canal street and SoHo, it immediately became clear that the title of Lewitt’s intervention was a massive understatement. Dispersed throughout the otherwise serene gallery space are large-scale copper heating circuits connected to the tall ceiling with loosely hung black wires. Dominating t... [more]

Genetics Determine All The Shit You Do  
by
6/24/16 Posted 6/24/16

Genetics Mixed Media Collage on Wood 96" x 96" My raw vision of humankind is presented through a series of what I call “psychoanalytical portraiture.” My paintings are generated by an intensive interrogative process where the sitter’s perception of self is re-examined and repressed emotions are unveiled. Unapologetically, my art bluntly places free will against genetic determinism. I strongly discount environmental factors as the root cause of our action... [more]
