Art or Not? "An intellect says a simple thing in a hard way, an artist says a hard thing in a simple way"—Bukowski once quipped. On our weekly meanderings through galleries and press releases, we seem to find that the art world is full of both. Each week, we select some of our findings and ask you to have some fun figuring out with us just what is art, what is artifice, and what is just bottles of cleaning product. This week: One of the images described below is a genuine piece and text by... [more]

Art or Not?

Art or Not? Art Fairs make for perfect mockery material. This year we've been trawling the art on show in and around Basel and coming across some riotus work, with equally absurd press releases, that all leaves us with belly ache. Can this be for real? Important art is often so confusing... This week: which of the works below was created by an esteemed Swiss artist who represents her country at the Venice Biennale this year, and has artworks currently for sale at Art Basel? #1 For the artist,...

Caroline Jane Harris at Scream 7/9/14 Posted 7/9/14

Scream are proud to present the first solo exhibition by young British artist Caroline Jane Harris. The artist explores the complexities of nature through a labour-intensive paper-cutting technique. Harris is inspired by the natural world and is conscious of the strong yet subtle links between natural life forms and us. She explores the intricacy and beauty of nature, which echo human and man-made systems, by responding to visual phenomena such as geometric, linear and circular motifs found in... [more]

Josh Tonsfeldt at Galerie VidalCuglietta 6/26/13 Posted 6/26/13

Galerie VidalCuglietta is pleased to present the first solo exhibition in Brussels of the young New York based artist Josh Tonsfeldt. The works of Josh Tonsfeldt bear the tone of transmissions and remnants of such accumulations. His sculptures, prints, and videos are uneasy testimonies of place, recounted with the restless glance in the rearview mirror. The attempts of the photographer to capture a moment and a place in an image could be seen as a starting point for his work. That the attemp... [more]

Unsung Heroism and Humanity in the Heat and Dust of Italy’s City of Art Piazza De Duomo, Pietrasanta   Lucy Goldberg Some wear newspaper hats or plastic goggles to shield them from the marble dust, others sport overalls and masks to protect them from the molten bronze, yet despite the layers worn by many of his subjects, there is a humanity in the portraits of artisans by Anglo-Polish photographer Henryk Hetflaisz on show until July 14th at the Piazza del Duomo in Pietrasanta.

Peter Saul at VW (VeneKlasen/Werner) April 27th, 2013 - June 29th, 2013
Posted 5/21/13

Peter Saul is likely the greatest discovery for the German market at this year’s Gallery Weekend. Now 79, the vanguard of Pop Art is spot on as ever, when  transforming his contemporary diagnoses into colorful mélanges of mythology, Mad Magazine, art history and Walt Disney. An artist-artist, who arrived in the upper echelons of the art world elsewhere a long time ago. Welcome to Berlin, Mr. Saul. — Gesine Borcherdt [more]

This is so interesting!  The artist here has been painting for a few weeks in public and this exhibit allows people to see how figurative art (oil on canvas and board) is actually made.   I saw some of the works yesterday in the reception area.  This is an accomplished artist who is known locally in Canada.  Great use of colours!  And there is a personal touch here - art expressing emotion and experience.  Her paintings of a vulnearable teenager are evokative of a time that passed. This is how... [more]
