Putting Paint to the Test   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Susan Bee at Accola Griefen Gallery May 23rd, 2013 - June 29th, 2013
Posted 6/25/13

Using scenes from classic cinema as inspiration, Susan Bee’s new body of work puts her medium to the test: with her painterly brushstrokes and jabs competing with the pictorial film stills as the subjects of her paintings. In her solo exhibition, “Criss Cross,” the artist has taken on the impassioned glances and forlorn stares of the silver screen, but removed them from the vintage glamour of chiaroscuro. With purposeful movement and motion evident in her painting, Bee has given each classic scene vi... [more]

(Image: Peter Worsley, Picnic, 2009, Oil on canvas, 16 x 20 x 0,5 inches; © Peter Worsley)   Peter Worsley (b. 1929, London, England) I see myself as kind of an old soul and a romantic at heart. The subjects I choose to paint have some sort of nostalgic calling - ordinary people doing everyday things at interesting places. Often the result reflects the human comedy. Each painting begins with a careful study of it's composition. Then, through a evolutionary process, often with moments of spontan... [more]

Subverting Society: Autonomy in the Portraiture of Barkley L. Hendricks   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Barkley L. Hendricks at Jack Shainman Gallery 20th Street February 28th, 2013 - April 6th, 2013
Posted 3/12/13

“If I didn't define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people's fantasies for me and eaten alive.” —Audre Lorde One might assume that the power of the artist lies in his ability to create his subjects. The series of portraits shown in Barkley L. Hendricks’ Heart Hands Eyes Mind, however, finds its unique authority in the artist’s capacity to allow his characters to define themselves. Rather than dictating the terms of their appearances, Hendricks seems to paint his subjects as... [more]

I have struggled with this question ever since I started to paint. Having copied famous artists' work, made many still life and figure studies, and having painted for the simple sensual thrill of presenting beauty or ugliness, I am left with the certainty that art is much broader and deeper than these technic...

Director/Curator Mary Reid’s counterview of contemporary artistic practice in Winnipeg pleasantly interrupted a reverie of city-centric exhibitions asserting legacies and mythologies of local artists and art production. The Winnipeg Art Gallery, of which Reid left her own legacy as Curator of Contemporary Art from 2004-2011, celebrates Winnipeg Now (September 29 –December 30, 2012), while Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art is currently midway through My Winnipeg Project: a series of four exhib...

Technique only goes so far...   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

I cannot help but think of the more commercial, often palette knife-painted, construction-based abstractions of the 1960s as I first walk into the exhibition at CRG Gallery. That is not good. As references go, you want to try to avoid the kitschier techniques, the ones that rely too heavily on dazzling their audience solely with technique, unless you plan to make a commentary about esthetics, or, you are intentionally trying to tweak your audience to get their attention, with the intention of bringi...

Dorothea Tanning at Gallery Wendi Norris January 10th, 2013 - March 2nd, 2013

Occupying the center, bellies hold babies, beer, guts (literal and proverbial), and intestines. They are a measure of our earthly life yet seem to take on a life of their own: ballooning, billowing, expanding, bloating, giving new shape to our bodies at any given time. In the work of Dorothea Tanning, the stomach is beautiful, sexual, and enchanting. Wandering around the exhibition of Tanning’s work at Gallery Wendi Norris, I came to a halt in front of Traffic Sign, 1970. But then, that seemed... [more]
