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]

Peter Williams at NOVELLA March 13th - April 5th
Posted 3/31/15

“And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, 'Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? It is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.'” —Acts 26:14 (King James Version) "We have art in order not to die from the truth." —Nietzsche The paintings of Peter Williams have, for a long time, addressed the nature of the body, specifically addressing how one might inhabit such a fragile space in such an arbi...

The $140 Million Dollar Eulogy

By Reed V. Horth for Robin Rile Fine Art 2015 Estate of Pablo Picasso/Artists Rights Society (ARS),New York A few days ago, my wife’s Linkedin Profile boasted this photo of Pablo Picasso’s 1955 masterpiece “Les Femmes d’Algers, Version O“, which is estimated to fetch over $140m at the upcoming Christie’s New York auction on 11 May. For me, it was like seeing an old friend. Her face had been drunk in and every nuance studied when I was a young art historian holed up in... [more]

Henry Taylor Filters Life Through Portraiture   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Henry Taylor at Untitled New York March 1st - April 4th
Posted 3/24/15

Near the entrance of Untitled Gallery on the Lower East Side is a slab of concrete with a shovel stuck into it. Chair legs and wire sprout off the shovel, as do branches wrapped in stretched pantyhose like wings on an urban angel. The shovel’s handle fits into the mouth of a plastic bottle shaped like a fuel container, painted black to resemble an African mask. On the adjacent wall hangs an antique wooden mirror frame, which now holds a hand-drawn Confederate flag found by the artist. Two to... [more]

The curators of a new exhibition at Marmottan Museum, Paris, Georges Vigarello and Nadeije Laneyrie-Dagen, have chosen an audacious topic: La Toilette and The Invention of Privacy, tracing the ritual practices that accompany the toilette through selected part of art history (with works on display from the 15th to the first half of 20th century).

My Oil Painting - Intense "Mackerel"  
by
3/21/15 Posted 3/21/15

I am very proud of my 2007 oil painting "Mackerel", in which I managed to capture both beautiful and sinister elements of a daily object, fulfilling a most tantalizing pursuit of mine. With its intense colors and bold strokes, this painting economically presents a sleekly fish, intently staring upwards, as if ready to confront its captor; at the meanwhile, its eye also betrayed the fish's sad resignation to its imminent demise. The background of the painting was plain drop cloth, hatched lightl... [more]

The Radiants at Bortolami X w/Green Tea Gallery

3/21/15 Posted 3/21/15

Four years on from the disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi reactor in Japan, radioactive water is still pouring into the sea. In spite of this, life goes on, politicians eat potentially radioactive strawberries for the cameras and something called "art" attempts to process a world as resistant to comprehensibility as the one we call, more or less, home. Into this strange reactor pool comes the show The Radiants bringing together work by Ei Arakawa, Jutta Koether, Sigmar Poke, UNITED BROTHERS and ma... [more]

Tamar Halpern "My Voice at the Pace of Drifting Clouds" at On Stellar Rays  
by
3/21/15 Posted 3/21/15

Painting is perpetually in crisis; rarely does the urgency of the crisis feel as palpable as in Tamar Halpern's show at On Stellar Rays. In an increasingly digital visual eco-system, painters are not forgiven easily if they don't reckon with the changes. Halpern's works-- paintings, in a sense; prints in a sense; even sculptures if looked at in another way--are determined not to be overwritten by the coders. The works, generally a combination of UltraChrome ink on linen and paper with some o... [more]

Archibald J. Motley Jr.: Hearing the Contemporary Pitch   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Archibald Motley at Chicago Cultural Center March 7th - August 31st
Posted 3/20/15

Approaching Archibald J. Motley Jr.’s traveling retrospective, currently on view at the Chicago Cultural Center, one can hear strains of jazz carrying down the Grand Staircase. The music pipes through a ceiling speaker in the brightly lit hall that’s meant to prepare and inform the viewer with a timeline of the painter’s life on one wall, a collection of his quotes on the other. And then one steps through, into the exhibition room itself—and all those nice little atmospheric... [more]
