(Turk) (Must) (Do) (Better) A Critical Review of Wittgenstein’s Dream Can we safely dismiss Freudian psychoanalysis with the lancet of irony? Or does the attempt fail? Gavin Turk at the Freud Museum It is telling and rather predictable that there is more actual criticism in the online comments following the mainstream reviews ofWittgenstein’s Dream then there is in the actual reviews, which for the most part stick to milk blooded enthusiasm or dry description of Turk and P...

16 JANUARY 2013 | ART & PHOTOGRAPHY | BY: TABISH KHAN Art Review: Four Seasons @ ArtEco Emer O'Brien, After the Salon, December 2012. Image courtesy ArtEco. The changing of the seasons has inspired many an artist, from Vivaldi's Four Seasons through to the portraits made up of seasonal fruit by Arcimboldo. This group exhibition displays the works of three artists who've been similarly inspired by the transition of time. Mathew Tom's works explore the subtle nuances that can alter percep... [more]

The Fairman Family at ARTHOUSE1 August 1st, 2015 - August 28th, 2015
Posted 8/15/15

It isn’t often that you get the chance to look into the workings of a family of artists over three generations, laying themselves open to scrutiny and speculation on their relationships. With the age of the artists ranging from the mature seventies to the youthful twenties, the work is bound to be wildly diversified; from the skilled and honed creativity of one generation to the enthusiastic optimism of another, with all sharing a dedication to, and love of, the arts, each exploring and de...

First there was the Boyle Family and now it's the Fairman Family but with a twist. The Boyles collaborated, the Fairmans worked independently and only brought the work together as part of the curating process. Bold? Foolhardy? Well, it works! "You People" is a celebration of the variety of creative talents across three generations of the family - Sheila Fairman and her chidren, Sean, Rebecca, Jonathan and Robert and grandchildren, Jackson and Georgia. The show revolves around the installation... [more]

Aaron Koblin, Ben Tricklebank at Barbican Art Gallery June 27th, 2015 - September 6th, 2015
Posted 3/20/16

Complete darkness and silence are what the viewers stumble into upon entering the Curve gallery. Following the exhibition assistants’instructions to step down into the gallery proper, the viewers have to be patient and wait. Curiosity, unease and agitation, all come along with the one-minute wait. All of a sudden, a wall of light falls from the above. Undazzling and somewhat misty, the light radiates with epic music. The journey begins. This is Light Echoes, an immersive site-specific installation by... [more]

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...

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]

Ello: Is it Good for Artists?  
9/29/14 Posted 9/29/14

We hate Facebook, but we use it anyways. Its distressing “real name” policy, emotional manipulation for research and the extortion of revenue from small businesses, magazines, non-profits, etc who now must pony up in order for their posts to show in more than 10% of their own fans’ feeds has compounded to make the behemoth social network universally reviled. Unfortunately, no new social media network has come along to take its place. Along comes Ello. Last week, ironically, Twi... [more]

(Image: Iori Endo, Untitled - Lumière, 2014, mixed media on wood, 24 x 24 in.; © Iori Endo) Iori Endo (b. 1987, Tokyo) I am interested in the idea of what makes it a ‘painting.’ My current investigation is to go beyond the physical limitation of canvas, and challenge the boundaries of the traditional understanding of what paintings may be. With emphasis in materiality and physicality, my approach to materials is both controlling and liberated - using its flexibility and... [more]

What has permanently inspired me over the years has always been a fleeting image of a less traditional shape, texture or colour or a blend of the three put together that will take my breath away on a sentimental journey ‘back to nature’ and, most importantly to me, on a journey back to who I have n...
