Josephine Taylor at Catharine Clark Gallery > San Francisco
April 23rd - May 28th
Posted 5/22/16

Currently on show at the Catharine Clark Gallery in San Francisco is "Teenager are Beautiful' a completely none ironic title for a rigorous and subtly sensational exhibition by San Francisco based artist Josephine Taylor. Within the gallery is a series of artworks demonstrating the most recent manifestation of a drawing practise that Taylor has devotedly explored since her MA at the San Francisco Art Institute in 1992. In contrast to her previous large scale ink drawings where Taylor would us... [more]

Found objects have always been secret allies for visual artists. They are stumbled upon and acquired, magpie-like, because of a private vision of “intrinsic interest,” to be teased out and made concrete later. Found photographs, too, have long since found their place inside artists’ private wunderkammern. Following the Box, an exhibition of a particularly curious origin now on view at the Indian Museum, Kolkata, brings the aesthetic power of found photographs front and center. http:/... [more]

Daria Kudinova at Osnova Gallery > New York

Posted 10/18/15

Artworks of Daria Kudinova charm with its composition, color palette and diversity of motives. You do not know for sure what kind of structures are presented at them. Is it something biomorphic or technogenic? What do they mean? What is the concept of those paintings? Besides, you will not understand the main idea of Dasha Kudinova’s artworks if you are not familiar with her biography. Before she developed her own style Dasha worked as a fashion photographer and as an assistant of more expe... [more]

It isn’t often that you get the chance to look into the workings of a family of artists over three generations, laying themselves open to scrutiny and speculation on their relationships. With the age of the artists ranging from the mature seventies to the youthful twenties, the work is bound to be wildly diversified; from the skilled and honed creativity of one generation to the enthusiastic optimism of another, with all sharing a dedication to, and love of, the arts, each exploring and de...

Comicon North Article by Rebecca Romani It’s late on a Friday and the Studio Door Gallery on 30th is still going strong for the opening of its national Comicon-inspired show, “Strip: Caricature, Satire and the Funnies.” The caricature artist is working on a couple who looks thrilled to be getting mildly caricaturized and someone is busily adding lines to the communal canvas off in the corner. She is concentrating so hard she barely notices people looking over her shoulder. ... [more]

By S. Nicole Lane Ta Prohm Trees, Gallery 2, Nancy Lu Rosenheim “I sat there, my heart beating fast, shaken by what had happened. The destruction of life and the boundless mystery of the content of softness.” -Magdalena Abakanowicz, Statements (1979-94) Knotted hair, tornadoes, log cabins, and pig sties, are (to name a few) the nouns which Nancy Lu Rosenheim applies to her work—trees of heaven, band aids, and sticks are stated as materials and the list goes on.

I entered the small, unassuming gallery space as a bearded head popped out from the back of the room and said, “Are you here to get your MFA?” “Yes!” I replied cheerfully. Because I was. I read that I could get an MFA in just one day at the Tenderloin Institute of Art, hosted by SFAQ, and I was immediately on board. If showing up was the application process, I was already excelling with flying colors. The man introduced himself as Dean Jeremiah Jenkins, and together... [more]

Issues, an exhibition in which a group of contemporary artists respond to political, social, racial, gender, and economic issues facing the world in recent years opened M... [more]

A Change is Gonna Come Solo exhibition Marco Pezzotta (1985)Curated by Bogomir Doringer *** The artistic interest from Marco Pezzotta lays in examining different systems in which our identity is being either formed or changed. We stand in those systems as individuals or as part of a group. For describing and shaping these relations Marco Pezzotta uses objects that function as tools for a narrative. They appear from another space and time, floating between digital and physical. The artist creates... [more]

Art or Not? Do you ever get the feeling when you enter a gallery, that you just don't get it? Sometimes it seems that the art world is a big ruse, making the most of that fear of the equivocal. Every week, we invite you to turn your ironic eye on art and identify the accidental imposter of the two images below—you might be surprised. This week, abstract stains: which of the below is a work by a world famous artist? #1 ...one of the pioneers of the post-Abstraction-Creation movement i... [more]
