CHENNAI: From a distance, it is hard to figure out what the mess piled up on the banks of river Pamba is. The photograph is actually a surreal view of a sea of sodden dhotis abandoned by pilgrims as they end the hard trek to the Sabarimala shrine in Kerala. This pile will soon degrade into pulp and join other junk and sewage waste that flows down this once-pristine river that feeds the Periyar Tiger Reserve. This will include water bottles, the oil drained from the smashed coconut shel .. Read more... [more]

(Image: Stacie Uhinck Rose, Within Reach, 2013, Mixed media on wood, 30 x 48; © Stacie Uhinck Rose) Stacie Uhinck Rose (b. Akron, Ohio) These recent abstractions are process driven and intuitively born. They were made while reflecting on structure, organized systems, accumulation and the unpredictable human element. There is a layering up of the recent past as we rebuild, rebrand, acquire and replace. This group of works alternately expose the stratum of what lies beneath the new as w... [more]

Candace "Chlee" Hunter has created a powerful exhibition about violence that African Americans have endured in this country. The exhibition choronicles the numberous deaths from racial violance against our communities, from slavery to the present day. Her beautifully crafted installtions and art pieces, engage art viewers in the politics and the history of crimes against our humantiy. I applaude Candace's research, scholarship and talent. All of the works within speak to viewers about the is... [more]

[Image: Jean Alexander Frater, Monument 2 (imagined aerial view), 2012, acrylic paint and pencil on canvas, 28" x 36"; © Jean Alexander Frater] Jean Alexander Frater (b. 1972, Tucson, AZ) My work is about the dissemination, reduction and translation of meaning. In postmodernism we can think about the over-saturation of imagery, paradoxically acting as the diluting agent of meaning (think about Warholian Marilyns; or, more recently, the selfie). On the other hand, in modernism, we can see the... [more]

(Image: Bryan Volta, Sledgehammer, concrete, oak, vine charcoal, 2014; © Bryan Volta) Bryan Volta (b. 1983, Cincinnati, OH) I create sculptures and photographs, filtered through idealized male interests that reflect on the continuity between exertion and objectification. The objects operate as temporal and visceral manifestations of psychological regression as I deconstruct my own masculinity. The materiality of my sculptures is central in my approach to execute an idea, which I then a... [more]

Krakow Erects A Bright Yellow Statue of Lenin Peeing  
by
6/13/14 Posted 6/13/14

Yep, a fluorescent chartreuse yellow statue of Lenin awkwardly holding his thing and peeing has come to Pole-land. According to The Independent (which mistakenly reported the statue being "fluorescent green"), the 'pubic' statue of Lenin was erected as part of Krakow's 6th Grolsch ArtBloom Festival in its eastern Nowa Huta district. The so-called Fountain of the Future stands in a place where another statue of Lenin was before it was dismembered in 1989 (and later bought by a Swedish millionai... [more]

20140714210225-4fa39f2fa2b7e5dffcb2d90c00ba5ddd Simryn Gill's Spare and Stunning Photographs of Decay

Simryn Gill at VAROLA > Los Angeles
March 18th - July 24th
Posted 7/14/14

Los Angeles Times Review By: Leah Ollman Simryn Gill's quietly stunning photographic series, "My Own Private Angkor," focuses on a housing development in a seaside town in Malaysia. The complex was built in the 1980s, but never occupied. Over time looters have stripped the site of salable metals. Surfaces have eroded. Dried leaves pile up on the floors and vines creep through the window openings. Gill's pictures, largely of abandoned domestic interiors, speak of both promise and ruin, of p... [more]

(Image: Oren Pinhassi, Untitled, 2014, Variable size, plaster, burlap, plastic sheets, bricks, plastic emergency water storage bag, water; © Oren Pinhassi) Oren Pinhassi (b. Israel) In the Middle East, there is a deeply engrained way of thinking about faith, politics, and history as being embedded in the land, in objects, and in structures. It is a place where people talk about the ground itself as something holy. Because things are thought of as carrying in them historical, religious... [more]
