As we flock around her right after our final MA Visual Arts First Year Juries and I request some time for an interview as directed by my professor Sir Quddus Mirza (Editor of ArtNow), there is a yes and a no in the answer that I get. The word enigmatic is a constant in all the published material that I’ve read about Sumaya Durrani in my humble quest to know a bit about her and we, the visual arts Master's students frozen in the space of her eloquence, are proof that it’s true.
Xaviera López is a Chilean animator who was an early adopter of the short video app Vine. Alongside a few likeminded souls she helped reveal the creative potential of the deceptively limited platform. The challenge of packing ideas, depth, and emotion into a maximum of six seconds has lead to a new visual language that has spread across all motion-based mediums.
López creates hallucinatory, visual poems that expertly utilize traditional drawing and animation techniques in a uniquely modern way. Her a... [more]

I first met Magalie Guérin in the early 2000s in Greenpoint, Brooklyn—long before Greenpoint was made famous by the TV show Girls. She ran a small gallery called GV/AS, and curated shows that fused serious painting with something personal and quirky (Rodney Dickson's exhibition of paintings of Tanya Roberts still stands out as one of his most interesting exhibitions). One could always find Magalie sitting the gallery and working on drawings—in retrospect, combining elements of art... [more]

“You can enjoy a grander sight, / By climbing to a greater height.”
~ Wang Zhihuan, On The Stork Tower
Merced, California — One does not only see the flowing or cascading waters but also imagine their origins, how they murmur, drift, and converge in a particular event in space and time, as if the artist had painted hundreds of miles of a meandering river, the waters explode with vivacity on the white plane, capturing their sensuous details in a single pictorial nar...

To deal with art and approaching it are the first basic steps that every artist in his research must address.
To approach the various forms of artistic expression and to bring it into line for us, may often be a difficult but necessary challenge to us, when we place ourselves in front of an collective exhibition, in which different artists and their different visual languages interact, feel and live art together. The artwork reflects the individual expression of a general feeling, is influence... [more]

The process of creating art always involves transmitting one’s singular sensory experiences into a discrete vision. The Los Angeles exhibition Mapping Fictions brings together four contemporary artists who organize information and experience through text and images, charting popular culture, physical space, and personal knowledge in painstakingly detailed work. Andreana Donahue and Tim Ortiz of Disparate Minds curated the exhibition, which is now on view at The Good Luck Gallery, a space dedicated to... [more]

Knox Martin arrived on the scene in the early 1950's, a young acolyte drawn to the work and climate of Abstract Expressionism. A couple of early paintings here show how much he was in its sway, particularly ''Susanna and the Elders'' (1953), a de Kooning-esque romp of bold, energetic forms in black and white marching di...

by Jillian Russo | June 9, 2015
Since the passage of the GI Bill during World War II, thousands of veterans have studied at the Art Students League of New York. Returning World War II veterans rejuvenated the League, making it a site of experimentation and an incubator for postwar artists. The GI Bill made an art education accessible to those who might not otherwise have become engaged in the field, and the influx of students strengthened an ambitious community.... [more]

How many artists in their ninth decade find themselves as vigorously inventive as Knox Martin? In 34 new paintings, most of which concentrate on the female figure (a favorite subject), the 87-year-old artist steers away from his familiar style—a brightly co... [more]
“Paintings of Women by the Handful,” by Benjamin Sutton, L Magazine (September 29, 2010)
Since very nearly the earliest chapters of art history, women have been among artists’ two or three preferred subjects (or objects, following feminism’s reframing of that history). Two new solo exhibitions three doors from one another on Eldridge Street attest to the feminine figure’s inexhaustible appeal. For Knox Martin, the female form remains a sensual muse that he dissects and... [more]
