Extracting a Rainbow of Color from Invasive Plants  
by
6/8/16 Posted 6/8/16

Hyperallergic by Seph Rodney on June 7, 2016 Every once in a while I see a show that makes me feel good, even hopeful about this overheated, self-aggrandizing, status-obsessed art scene in New York. Chroma Botanica: Ellie Irons & Linda Stillman was such an exhibition for me. It’s charming and inquisitive, imaginative and investigatory. It takes plant life both as an object of scientific investigation, and as an aesthetic jumping-off point. I mean, we have been told that there are two ant... [more]

Artist & Painter - Aase Birkhaug Believing that surroundings can influence one` s health and mind, Painter and Physiotherapist Aase Birkhaug has combined her two passions by painting roses for a soothing effect. Having fallen in love with flowers, nature and painting from early age, it was only natural to merge these factors together at some point, and by combining the aesthetic beauty of botany with her skills as a painter. It is documented that colors have an effect on the sensory system, and... [more]

By: Amy Haddad Michael and Yhelena Hall’s thought-provoking installation at The Mission in Chicago does more than draw attention to the environment. This show reveals practical solutions to contemporary problems. Partial exhibition shot of “Wilderness and Household.” Creating artwork that generates awareness to environmental issues is nothing new. Agnes Denes famously created “Wheatfield” in 1982.

Artist's cult  
by
7/17/15 Posted 7/17/15

God first spoke to me when I was 8, while sitting in a wooden church pew in a sanctuary that was outfitted like a synagogue. I recall it was during the part in the "Jewish" ( I cannot verify this is actually a traditional Jewish practice, as I have never seen it happen in any subsequent standardized "Jewish" services) service when the Torah is brought out and everyone is singing and holding up their hands in the air reaching to touch the holiness. God's voice came through the retro woofers ( no... [more]

When contemplating the multiplicity of nature, 2012 Ad Herzel In many ways it does not make sense that I am a visual artist. My first love was literature and writing and I do not seem to find comfort in my contemplation of the creations of other Visual artist's in the same way I do from writing and poetry. This may be due to the way I engage with the different Arts. Poetry and literature have always been plays and immersions into struggle, as well as haven's from struggle. I read t... [more]

Alternative Waters: a Personal View of Recent Macri Portraits by Kenneth Radu  
by
12/6/14 Posted 12/6/14

Part I People familiar with Adamo Macri’s portraits may well experience an aesthetic shock to see a picture of the artist with his eyes wide open. So many of his self-portraits depict the eyes averted, lowered, askance, or rarely looking directly at the viewer that I was taken aback by a recent picture, entitled Damo, 2013. There are a few other pictures in his Facebook oeuvre wherein the artist opens his eyes and stares out of the canvas, Self-Portrait, 2013, for example, but that is... [more]

New Western Art: Gazing Upon Chuck Forsman's Not-So-Wild West   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
Elena Dorfman, Chuck Forsman, Isabelle Hayeur, David Sharpe at Robischon Gallery March 20th, 2014 - May 10th, 2014
Posted 4/24/14

Western Art in America has seemingly changed little in over a century. Romanticized cowboys, portraits of Native Americans, and the persistent embrace of the sweeping Western landscape. While such paintings remain highly sought after and evoke nostalgia for the wild frontier, for painter and photographer Chuck Forsman, these images are relics of a dated tradition that has persisted beyond its relevance. Forsman is Westerner through and through: born in Idaho and raised in Oregon and Northern Californi... [more]

Mining Northern New Mexico: Human-made Tools to Solve Human-made Problems   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Posted 3/28/14

In the stark, grandiose landscapes of Northern New Mexico, it is easy to see the human element as small. Significant to be sure, but comparatively outweighed by the beauty and immensity that radiates so gracefully and quietly from big-sky vistas. Compared to the dramatic landscape, the human presence is more akin to interference, a disruption of the Wild West. The byproducts of this human disruption therefore mar the land more visibly and more violently against the backdrop of high desert and moun... [more]

Every single person is guaranteed to have a Melvillean moment when walking around the UNNATURAL multi-media exhibit at the Bass Museum Miami Beach. The whale. You see it out of a side-glance when entering the main exhibition hall. Dar-she-blows. Children will run feverishly across the room toward it. Adults will surely want to, but etiquette dictates following the unspoken museum protocol that anyone over the age of twelve should not run cackling toward large-scale models of megafauna. But like... [more]
