20121209164634-sylviaiskander Elemental Forms Formed by the Elements – Sylvia Iskander at Skoto Gallery - by Mary Gregory  
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!  
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 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]

(Image: Arvind Garg,  Central Park, New York, 2006, Archival pigment print; © Arvind Garg)   Arvind Garg (b. 1946, Punjab, India) For me the urge to make photographs, first and foremost, is to discover for myself the beauty and the mystery of the visual world in which I live. The twenty-five years  I have spent photographing have been devoted to refining my vision and improving my practice of the craft that helps create a photographic print. The universe is not constant, and light, which makes... [more]

The images I depict are ephemeral and... [more]

THE NEW YORK PHOTO REVIEW, October 6, 2011 I AM THE OTHER: CORNELIA HEDIGER, DOPPELGANGER II — Ed Barnas In Doppelgänger II, Cornelia Hediger continues her series of conceptual tableau vivants in which she plays all the parts. Each scene is broken down into equally sized parts and combined in a rectilinear grid, usually 2 wide by 3 high. Although precisely divided by solid black lines, the individual parts are slightly misaligned and sometimes out of proportion, creating an impression of an e... [more]
