(Image: Kat Elagina, Sea Robin, 2014, Acrylic on canvas, 20 x 24 x 0,8 inches; © Kat Elagina) Kat Elagina (b. Russia) The world we live in, according to Jung, is a world of invisible archetypes. Every person has an ability to create in any field of human activity. Everything depends on him/her. Fine Arts is one of the most descriptive and ancient demonstrations of human desire to create, with developing cycles that show the similarities between art from vastly varying periods and locatio...

Much has been said about the so-called “Belgian collector.” For captains of industry and local dentists alike, collecting contemporary art almost seems to be part of the Belgian DNA—which explains why the country is reputed for having the highest concentration of art collectors per square kilometer. Yet, as more and more Parisian collectors make the move to Brussels, the Belgian collector is becoming increasingly French. In addition to Art Brussels’ Portrait of the Collector as a Work of Art, the strong presence of collectors i... [more]

Seoul, South Korea) I have a fascination with water. Water has qualities of fluidity, rhythm, luminosity, color, movement, and ultimately, a spiritual essence. Although I am drawn to water as my source of inspiration, my art is non-representational. I want my work to have its own vitality and “life,” and be separat... [more]

Knox Martin at Janos Gat Gallery > New York
April 29th, 2003 - September 12th, 2003
Posted 4/19/14

Knox Martin at Janos Gat: A review of Caprichos by Edward Leffingwell Knox Martin named his new series of generously scaled, unframed drawings "Caprichos" for the moralizing, didactic, fever-dream etchings of Goya that first attracted him as a child, 67 years ago. But there is substantial whimsy to Martin's recent phantasmagoria of animal and human forms. Ranging from roughly 2 to 7 feet on a side, they are confident, loosely drawn in pen and ink, crayon and watercolor on thin sheets of paper,... [more]

GIFs Are Offish Legit says Saatchi (and it’s pronounced “Motion Photography”)  
by
4/18/14 Posted 4/18/14

Saatchi Art, the Saatchi Gallery, and Google+ just announced the winners of their first-ever Motion Photography Prize. “Motion Photography” is apparently the high-brow version of a GIF, those low-brow, low-tech repeating videos long enjoyed by Tumblr gurls and basement dwelling neckbeards, and more recently, everyone. They've also already been kind of a thing in the art world—the Pittsburgh collective VIA launched its intense 2014 T.GIF tournament last month and we hosted our own... [more]

via Itella Posti I need a Finnish pen pal. This fall Finland's postal service, Itella Posti, is releasing a new series of stamps paying homage to legendary homoerotic illustrator Touko Laaksonen aka Tom of Finland. Laaksonen's iconic hyper-masculine drawings helped give rise to fetish art and made an incredible impact on gay culture. During a career spanning from the '50s to the '70s, Laaksonen produced over 3,500 illustrations challenging sexual norms and popular tropes while giving leather... [more]

May 3rd - July 31st
Posted 4/16/14

Women, erotic scenes, superheroes, robots and comic characters inhabit the glaring, opulent universe of Keiichi Tanaami's collages. Their imagery is intensive, rich in colors and motives, and visually overwhelming. The works presented at the Gallery Gebr. Lehmann in Berlin come from the late 1960s and the early 1970s. They were created shortly after Keiichi Tanaami's stay in the USA and reflect his fascination with the aesthetics of Pop Art and Flower Power. Film industry, music culture and also gr... [more]

Amrita Sher-Gil at National Gallery Of Modern Art - NGMA Bengaluru > India
March 30th - April 30th
Posted 4/15/14

Let me start with a small proviso which may get me booted out of your reading list. I saw the exhibition at the NGMA in New Delhi. However, given my views on the Bangalore NGMA (http://dillikidiva24.blogspot.in/2012/12/name-that-city.html), I'm pretty sure the exhibition will be similiar. ah well, here goes nothing.. If theres one painter from India people have heard of, chances are that it's Amrita Sher-Gill. She lived for only 28 years (1913- 1941) across two continents in four countries, was famous for her personal life (... [more]

As the first South Bay art fair Silicon Valley Contemporary was met with a little resistance, but in the end it was highly attended and the art was pretty great.

Place., 2012, HD video David Castillo Gallery, Miami This video piece was not only an aesthetic delight (mesmerizing, really) but quite funny and the artist... [more]
