         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]

Cd008 宿墨之韵味 The Charm of Su-Ink  
7/28/15 Posted 7/28/15

宿墨之韵味 浅释: 宿墨之韵味是宿墨派的师祖,摩诘大师用中国传统的大泼墨法,大胆地运用宿墨的魅力,把个宿墨的韵和味发挥到淋漓尽至,大师他运用许多他自创的手法,使这滴滴宿墨瞬间神奇地绽开,栩栩如生,形态各异,或鬆或急,浓淡不一,宛如墨菊,至美至酷。而摩诘大师却整天沉醉于,这宿墨的韵和味之间,旁若无人,浑然不知我的存在。而我也被这神奇的创作方式而迷惑。 你有看过这样的作品吗?肯定没有,它是不能高仿的。这是第一个独一无二,也是第一幅。除了摩诘大师,目前是没有人能画的,请仔细品味。 第二个独一无二,是它是使用了大师自己独创的變色颜料,它能随周围的即时大气湿度,由色样0(粉红色)变到色样7,鲜天蓝色,等8个 色阶变化。与变色龍一样。注:请看变色龍浅释:* 或许你会思索,摩诘大师为什麽放“宿墨之韵味”去论争而不放“变色龍”,因为“宿墨之韵味”是有二个独一无二在这世界,而“变色龍“仅一个独一无二。 *宿墨:在中国画的六法画论中说:宿墨是不可用的!何为宿墨。就是墨研好后,过了夜的墨水,特别是夏天,经发酵了就不能用,用则化。就因为中国画的六法论是中国传统的经典论文。所以以往宿墨是禁用的,人们都不敢用宿墨。 ** The Charm of Su-Ink: The charm of Su-ink is Su-ink Sectarian of Teacher-Zu, Mo-Jie Wang master with traditional Chinese set aside a large Splash method ink, boldly use the charm of Su-ink , the Su-ink rhyme and taste play to...

Plastic Paralysis at Studio Bongiorno  
7/10/15 Posted 7/10/15

I had a rude awakening this last April when Robin Lysne asked me to participate in the June/July exhibit "Plastic Paralysis" at Studio Bongiorno in Santa Clara, CA. I had no idea that plastic was and is creating a huge environmental disaster: huge funnel like gyres larger than the state of Texas made of floating plastic debris in all of the world's major oceans. As a result, plastic has invaded the food chain in both minute and/or large form in most all fish and sea mammals. To me what hit home was se... [more]

Private and Confidential  
Mark Stammers at AE Contemporary Art Gallery June 27th - July 18th
Posted 6/30/15

This exhibition is called Private and Confidential, the pieces are beautifully framed prints, that vibrate with luminous colour and luscious brush strokes, these seductive effects give a warm and enticing atmosphere to the imagery, but underneath is a certain and sudden shock as the mind realises the figurative imagery that challenges the imagination and beckons satire and paradox, and the cartoon, these seem to rent through the surface of appearances.....perhaps to comfort the knowing viewer wi...

Out of the Black Box, into the White Cube   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Marina Alexeeva, Marco Brambilla, Mat Collishaw, Ger Van Elk, William Kentridge, Marzia Migliora, Jacco Olivier, Elisa Sighicelli, Bill Viola at Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya May 28th - August 30th
Posted 6/30/15

Three rooms into the modern art section of the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya the film Tide Table is projected on the wall. It’s a typical William Kentridge piece: animated black and white drawings, frolicking bathers are observed by Ghadhafi-like generals, a cow is slaughtered in a cabana, lots of political innuendo. Even though the film is combined with a couple of drawings by the South African artist, it’s pretty much a stand-alone presentation. It lacks the kind of conte... [more]

Posted 6/24/15

Entering Fire and Forget. On Violence, the viewer passes through two of the four rotating gates in Daniil Galkin’s installation Tourniquet. Beyond this eerie passage, a provocative text speculates on the impact of technology on modern warfare. Its thesis can be characterized as follows: since modern technology has largely emancipated warriors from a traditional active sense of duty—allowing them to literally fire and forget—does this change in confrontation halt the production and inev...

An Undiscovered Great: Edward E. Boccia, American Expressionist Artist.  
6/23/15 Posted 6/23/15

We all dream of undiscovered treasures, particularly hidden gems in unknown or obscure places. When we think about what mid 20th century American art history, we often immediately think of abstract painters like Jackson Pollock. Yet, there were other forces of creativity at work, often in relatively remote places as far as the art world is concerned. One such artist was Edward E. Boccia, an American painter, born in 1921 in New Jersey (d. 2012, St. Louis, Missouri). Virtually unknown today, the i... [more]
