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]

Private and Confidential  
by
Mark Stammers at AE Contemporary Art Gallery June 27th - July 11th
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.  
by
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]

The Balls  
by
6/21/15 Posted 6/21/15

June 2015, there are 2 more balls cast and 1 more wax in line, to complete the set. Why make balls? As one critic who was trying to be nice wrote, "Yet again, another ball..." and then went on to (kindly at least) attribute some symbolism to it that I certainly never intended. And so I asked myself, yeah, why am I making balls? Not that I like to let critics dictate my directions, but I do admit they can get you thinking about your art. In this case I wasn't able to argue my favorite: "... [more]

International artist Tom Estes has been invited by curator Rebecca Feiner to act as Honorary Mayor of DEN-City1.

Organised with Middlesex University, DEN-City1 is part of The London Festival of Architecture, a month long celebration of architectural experimentation, thinking and practice. I’ m sure I... [more]

One Body Part at a Time: ASHES/ASHES Summer Video Series   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
Knut Asdam, Nayland Blake, Patty Chang, Cheryl Donegan, Bob Flanagan, Mike Kelley, Sheree Rose at ASHES/ASHES June 2nd - July 11th
Posted 6/12/15

Video is an exceedingly difficult medium to wrangle into a gallery space: Do you serve it up movie theater-style, with chairs and set screening times? Do you play it on a loop and allow people to walk in and out? Headphones or no headphones? Video demands long looking, but it rarely gets it. How many times have you watched mere seconds of a work of video art before turning to something else? Actually maybe a better question, how many times have you actually watched a work of video art from beginni... [more]

Ryan McGinley at Kunsthal KAdE May 30th - August 30th
Posted 6/2/15

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]

The Immigrant Song  
by
Jacob Lawrence at MoMA (Museum of Modern Art) 5/27/15 Posted 5/27/15

One of the most startling impressions that one takes away from seeing the reunited Migration Series at the Museum of Modern Art is how current the paintings still feel—current in a way that Céline still does, or Christopher Isherwood, or John Steinbeck, documentors of a very specific moment of transition, faithfully recording sensitive observations. Jacob Lawrence’s cycle of sixty paintings on the subject of the Northern Migration is both a landmark work for an artist who was just tw... [more]
