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]

It is hard to take any exhibition with a grandiose title such as Photography Since the Millennium seriously, but then again, we are just fifteen years into this new millennium.
And there have not been any major strides in photography since the new millennium except for, well, the death of analogue, and video is accessible to all. Goodbye film, hello pixels. Has there been one year since the new millennium that has not seen a new release of cameras with enhanced numbers of pixels? It is the mega... [more]
We cannot begin any assessment of the work of Frank Stella without the obligatory quote that has followed his career for over fifty years. “What you see is what you see” was Stella’s painterly philosophy distilled down to seven words. If there is a definition of Minimalism that is more succinct, it has yet to replace Stella’s as a key to understanding a certain type of particularly American painting in mid-century art history.
At the Whitney Museum we have a chance to ca... [more]

At any given time you will find me involved in reading several books. Recently "The Afterlife of Billy Fingers" has had my attention as chapter 27 the Stream Of Life provides for me some confirmation about the nature of my creative work. Heres my attempt at an excerpt:
I've finished reviewing my book of life and am on to a new phase.... I woke in my light body siting next to a magical stream.
It seems to go on forever but is only a few yards across.
This is not a stream in the usual sense. It has no... [more]
An Interview with Jaime Foster: Biophilia @ The Elephant Room Gallery
By S. Nicole Lane
The paintings of Jaime Foster, a Chicago-based artist, are reminiscent of the waves in Lake Michigan: When the fog has drifted and the overcast sky hangs low above the horizon, the water greets the shore with a kiss-and-go. Many of her pieces are vast--both in scale and in palette. Her work acknowledges the larger landscape--the water, the mountain, and the trees--but the core of her work is in the de... [more]

I like my paintings to exude a raw human energy. I want the process and the struggle to be evident in the marks.
I begin each painting with specific outcomes in mind yet I allow myself to go off on tangents, embracing each accident and creating something new within it. This ensures the process is lively and exciting.
I create images that interest me with historical references from Romantic eras and Renaissance painting, combined with expressive marks inspired by abstract expressionism and the o... [more]
I’m sitting on the beach in Jervis Bay on the New South Wales coast. Ian and I have taken a few days off and headed down to one of our favourite coastal areas to celebrate our 31st wedding anniversary.
Yesterday we went for a beach walk. It was great to feel the sand between my toes and scour the water’s edge for all sorts of interesting objects.
I love to take lots of photos and I came across this delightful little terrier dog. She was chasing the waves, trying to catch them as they... [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]
Inside a crashing car one has the experience of time slowing down. Studies suggest that the sense of time slowing during a crisis event is happening during recollection, not during the perception of the event as it is happening. During the crisis event a larger than normal amount of information is being processed as an instinctual survival mechanism. The processing of more than the normal amount of information creates an elongated perception of the event. (1.) We see that recollection is an import... [more]

We live in a digitally manipulated world where Photoshop and Instagram filters are essential everyday tools in public image making. In movies, CGI tricks the audience into believing the impossible by making it visually plausible. In art, we're used to seeing similar qualities: digital tools and graphic design resources have leaked into other creative mediums, achieving through aesthetics what the naked eye fails to see. Yet there are artists who embrace the digital realm, paradoxically, by avoid... [more]
