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]
Collezione Peggy Guggenheim (Peggy Guggenheim Collection), located in an unfinished 18th-century palace, Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, boasts many modern masterpieces ranging in style from Cubism and Surrealism to Abstract Expressionism. One of my favorite work there was a sculpture in the garden: The Cloven Viscount (Il visconte dimezzato) by Mimmo Paladino, which was simultaneously formal and fluid, familiar and strange, comforting and unsettling. The figure, installed inside a small square bri... [more]

On Saturday, October 31st, when all of New York was abuzz with Halloween fun and fright, the last of chashama 461 Studio & Gallery artists were emptying their contents into U-Haul trucks, donation bins and dumpsters. The building, located at 461 West 126th Street in Harlem’s factory district, is now closed after eight years of service to working artists and the Harlem arts community at-large.
At any given time, chashama – which means “to have vision” – operates between 15-25... [more]

The show presents work by 24 artists working in the medium, most of which were made within the past six years, but the presentation also includes a couple of earlier works produced in the 1970s, and a scattering from the late 90s and early 2000s. A few major tendencies and themes also arise in the show: beauty, portraiture,... [more]

This show is not to be missed. The paintings pop off the canvas in bright colors as if the paint were dancing to the jazz music that inspired many of the paintings. While the curator emphasizes the historical importance of these paintings, and that they capture a community not usually chronicled in art, they are great because they are great, period. He uses color and facial expression in a way that seems ahead of his time. It is a delightful and eye opening show. Particularly memorable, a swirling... [more]

“I’ll persevere, I am not precious, over-daintyIn wifehood I will use mine instrumentAs freely as my Maker hath it sent.”
—The Wife of Bath by Geoffrey Chaucer
In Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, the Wife of Bath argues against the primacy of virginity within the Church; someone is procreating to birth the virgin and therefore what is chaste is also ephemeral. She sees this as a flaw in God’s plan, and consequently, will reject purity and instead assume sexua... [more]

Il Ghetto and Museo Ebraico (The Ghetto and Jewish Museum) in Venice were poignant places to visit and unsurprisingly, one of my favorite artifacts there was a series of reliefs mounted on the wall of the huge courtyard, depicting momentous experiences of the Jewish people: Another favorite of mine was an ancient map/landscape of a walled city (Jerusalem?) housed inside the museum. I was struck by the harmoniously interwoven pleasing blue and green tones throughout the lovely piece, and t... [more]
