(Image: Anthony Kolens, Meadowbrook Polo 2, 2010, Oil on canvas, 40 x 32 x 2 inches; © Anthony Kolens)   Anthony Kolens (lives in Long Island, Upper Brookville, NY, USA) I use photography instead of drawing as the foundation for paintings. When I realized I would never equal the draughtsmanship of Raphael or Rubens, this was a natural choice. Using the camera also allows one to capture the figure, especially in motion, in a spontaneous way that cannot be achieved by drawing. Painting in th... [more]

Posted 3/31/13

by Ami Kealoha in Culture on 23 February 2006 Brooklyn-based artist Jacob Williams' day-glo psychedelia already looks like a trip through a Disneyland ride on drugs, which makes Tim Regan's recent video piece (created to announce the opening reception for Williams' solo installation "Nightmare of the Haunted Buddha") a natural fit. Set to a dramatic Psycho-esque soundtrack, the animation sets Williams' mountains, wild-haired women, and panthers in motion, which nicely establishes the tone... [more]

BRITISH JOURNAL OF PHOTOGRAPHY February, 2013 "Hereros – Jim Naughten"   London-based photographer Jim Naughten first came across the Herero tribe and their eclectic sense of fashion several years ago while travellingin southern Africa. The images he captured on that trip were published in Marie Claire, which funded an exhibition that in turn landed him a major global advertising campaign. Yet Naughten knew he needed to return to Namibia to continue photographing. “I always had it in the back of my mind to... [more]

PHOTO DISTRICT NEWS – Exposures Section (February, 2013 issue) For his new book, Jim Naughten created typological photographs of Namibia’s He rero people, whose military and civilian clothes are symbols of their historic struggle against colonialism. By Conor Risch   Many nations and cultures remember military heroes, great victories, and fallen soldiers through statues and monuments. On national holidays, war veterans don old uniforms and medals, or wear clothing decorated with patches that... [more]

INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY – COSTUME DRAMA by Peter Popham Colonial rule may be history for the Herero tribe of Namibia but the style conventions of their 19th-century German oppressors live on – albeit with a certain bovine-inspired twist… When European women jettisoned their ankle-length frocks and the multiple petticoats that kept the frocks full and plump, they gained a great deal in the way of freedom. But they lost something, too – and what they lost is brought home by the magnificent presence o... [more]

  (Image: Eun Young Yun, dancer, 2012 Oil on Canvas, 4 X 12 X 1 Inches; © Eun Young Yun)   Eun Young Yun (b. 1968, Bussan, South Korea) When I was a little, I felt some inspiration from old masterpiece paintings such as Rembrandt. I love classical painting. Tradition contains long history about true story and personal perception. It very much fascinates me. Since then, I dreamed to be a great figurative artist like them. So, I studied Fine Arts at Kyong Song University in Korea and specializ... [more]

20121209164634-sylviaiskander Elemental Forms Formed by the Elements – Sylvia Iskander at Skoto Gallery - by Mary Gregory  
by
Sylvia Iskander at Skoto Gallery December 6th, 2012 - January 12th, 2013
Posted 12/9/12

The stoneware sculptures of Sylvia Iskander evoke forgotten memories through ties to both the past and the present. Her clay and porcelain figurative sculptures, now on exhibition at Skoto Gallery in Chelsea, express monumentality and timelessness, finding echoes in human representation from time immemorial. Myth, history, environmentalism, and feminism all strike harmonic chords in the earthy abstract figural pieces which convey many and multi-layered messages. As with all sophisticated artwor...

20121012193126-wodiczko_lincoln_war_veteran_projection This is best installation in public parks ever!  
by
Krzysztof Wodiczko at Galerie Lelong November 8th, 2012 - November 8th, 2012
Posted 11/20/12

Krzysztof Wodiczko's Abraham Lincoln: War Veteran Projection is the best public space installation in 2012, this is a must see! You can get a few minutes of a quick documentation at https://vimeo.com/53446621 but I suggest viewing the installation live. Like all of Wodiczko's work, this installation is politically charged, moving and mesmerizing. The brilliance is behind the images of 14 war veternas from Vietnam, Afganistan and Iraq, projected  onto the cold bronze statue of Abraham Lincoln. As... [more]

(Image: Emily Burns, The Three Daughters of Mara, 2012, oil on canvas, 52 x 48"; © Emily Burns)     Emily Burns (b. 1986, Warrenton, VA) My recent work investigates the inner complexities of women through intimate glimpses of parallel environments. I am interested in the vulnerability of beauty, and the eternalization of my subjects through the process of painting. Texture, pixelation, color and sensuality invite the viewer to acknowledge the arousing quality of the images.   Educati... [more]
