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]
Gentrification is the big bad wolf in the modern day urban party. Never formally invited, it heard of the gathering by word of mouth and will restlessly attempt to enter even if it has to blow the entire structure down. No one likes it—neither the apologetic gentrifier nor the displaced community who lack enough financial clout or power to resist or keep up with the shift. It barrels forward as if it has no memory of itself, all history lessons completely erased. After it passes, the area h... [more]

NEW YORK PHOTO DIARY, JUNE 24 2015 - Catherine Troiano
Last Wednesday, Klompching Gallery re-opened in their new location at 89 Water Street, DUMBO. The gallery has been located in DUMBO since it opened seven years ago, but until recently was one of a number of arts businesses situated on the second floor of 111 Front Street. Two Trees Management, a prominent real estate company in the neighborhood that has been a long-standing proponent of DUMBO arts, enabled the move and Klompching is one of te... [more]

I have been looking for the right space and group of people to share my work with for the last 2 years. I have now found that space and am excited to share a new body of work that includes, the beginning of many new series of works. The planetary series, The Vision Quest series, the Lazer series, new miniature art books and of course some of my classics, Pixel Perfect, Angel Hearts and if time permits perhaps a new mermiad and new ballerina. The clock is ticking - Namaste. [more]
CHRISTOPH WALTER PIRKER lives and works in Graz and Knittelfeld. He formulates projects at the interface of architecture, painting, music and text.
"The artwork is created first as a text, it has to be deciphered first and in its depth of its layers it is not presumed that it is at all decipherable.” (Christoph Walter Pirker)

The thematic centerpiece of Paris-based artist Will Benedict’s solo show at Bortolami is The Bed That Eats, a six-minute animated video with music by Michigan-based noise duo Stare Case. The soundtrack opens with electronic scrawl, an aimless bass melody, and occasional shakes of a maraca. The video, meanwhile, portrays an undressed bed, hyperrealistic and monochromatic, in an empty windowless room. When Stare Case vocalist Nate Young’s voice pierces through the hitherto sparse, inst... [more]
"Let me introduce you," sings Kim Gordon on 2002's "Sympathy for the Strawberry," "since you saw my shadow self / living underneath you." What's underneath the artist's new pieces at 303? Humps of rigid canvas painted with unintelligible words and manicured faux-hedges sit on the gallery floor, while a sparkly crumpled canvas or two hangs on each wall. Indeed, all of the objects create shadows; they look as though they're hiding something, the sole representational piece (a close-up photo of th... [more]
International artist Tom Estes has been invited by curator Rebecca Feiner to act as Honorary Mayor of DEN-City1. Estes describes himself as a “Sci-fi inspired Carnival Sideshow Conceptualist, combining a bare-bones formal conceptualism with an eternally adolescent, DIY comic-prank approach”. Organised with Middlesex University, DEN-City1 is part of The London Festival of Architecture, a month long celebration of architectural experimentation, thinking and practice.

While all eyes are on Basel, there’s a different crowd who are skipping the annual summer commercial art fair route altogether. Some of them might have been at the opening of the Nordic Biennial of Contemporary Art this weekend, Momentum. The 8th edition opened its doors with live video of a performance from a Kurdish-Swedish pop songstress, Oculus Goggles, and an installation made of synthetic hair.
