Self Harm Averted  
by
10/4/10 Posted 10/4/10

The numbers of the anti-conceptual art group, The Stuckists, swelled for their annual protest on the steps of Tate Britain at this year's Turner Prize exhibition opening by press photographers refusing to ply their trade. The photographers were boycotting the exhibition in response to Tate Britain’s insistence that they sign a form that prohibited them from publishing any images or words which would "result in any adverse publicity" for the Tate. As The Times photographer Richard Pohle said “We... [more]

Posted 9/7/10

Flowers gallery in the heart of the west end currently has not one but two intriguing  exhibitions on at the moment. When other galleries are slowing down in the summer months or just showing works they have in stock flowers gallery is coming alive (quite literally with some of the pieces of animated works).                 On the ground level is a show that any lover of photography should see. It has iconic and resonating images from Edward Burtynsky, Nadav Kander & Robert Polidori. The paint... [more]

34183 Interesting show  
by
Group Show at Flowers | Kingsland Road July 2nd, 2010 - July 24th, 2010
Posted 7/30/10

What a Relief incorporated a range of works by various artists, some very contemporary. All were linked by containing an element of 'relief' from the wall, but still being on the wall, thus occupying a space somewhere between painting and sculpture. The show was well conceived and curated, with a very strong selection of artwork on display. Highly recommended. [more]

THE EMPTY QUARTER  
by
Jedediah Caesar, Naheed Raza at Bloomberg Space May 28th, 2010 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM
Posted 6/20/10

COMMA's latest double-header couple are Jedediah Caesar and Naheed Raza, two artists interested in landscape, transience and tactility. Sand is a new film by Raza, depicting the desert of the Empty Quarter, one of the largest expanses of sand in the world. Its 650,000 square kilometers stretches across Saudi Arabia, Oman, United Arab Emirates and Yemen, more than the combined land areas of Belgium, the Netherlands and France. But the presence of this vast expanse is seldom felt in the minutiae... [more]

An interview with Turner Prize nominee Yinka Shonibare

5/24/10 Posted 5/24/10

(Excerpt from 'Yinka Shonibare' by Anthony Downey posted on Bombsite, 2005 Found on http://bombsite.com/issues/93/articles/2777) Yinka Shonibare first came to widespread attention through his use of Dutch wax fabric, which he has used both as the ground of his paintings and to clothe his sculptures. This bright and distinctive fabric was originally produced in Dutch Indonesia, where no market was found for it, and subsequently copied and produced by the English, who eventually sold it to...

Koestler_awards Neurologically stimulating creations

Posted 12/24/09

This exhibition is simply brilliant and I was more touched by this exceptionally human art than I was by most of the pieces I saw at the last Documenta (Juan Davila excluded). One of the "offenders" (I would prefer to use the term people) said that it was shame she had to be imprisoned to discover art. Too true! In the United States the government spends more money on incarcerating people than on educating them - I hope this doesn't become the case in the UK. In this society, art and creativity are...

Anish Kapoor at Royal Academy of Arts September 26th, 2009 - December 11th, 2009
Posted 9/2/12

As the first living artist to land a solo show at the Royal Academy, Anish Kapoor’s self-appellated show is an incredibly daring, sensory, and truly contemporary display of the artist’s oeuvre and sculpture today. Whilst you endure the overwhelming queues outside, the jagged tower of shiny metal spheres, Tall tree and the eye - a new sculpture provided for the exhibit - whets your appetite for the ensuing unctuous crimson wax and grey sludge and slither, spliced with wide concave and convex surfaces...

Amanda Language and Surfaces @ Fold Gallery's Unrelated Oxides

Posted 8/10/09

The month of August for London is the holiday month for London in regards to art. Not so in Hackney.  A group exhibition at Fold Gallery this month curated by three artists that are also in the exhibition. As far as summer exhibitions go this is set up for a bland, over-hanged space with absolutely no room was made for cohesion. It was a surprise that Unrelated Oxides exemplified a focus in a group exhibition. The premise of the exhibition is a correlation with a quote, by Sebastian Faulks, that d... [more]
