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...

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]

…..In her recent exhibition, “Ad Fundum: New Bronze Work,” she takes a giant leap through the millennia-a shift in time, accompanied by a shift in perspective……Here, (Panóias, northern Portugal) Weil began her studies for two new sets of work- “The Panóias Cycle” series and The Dig. In these works, she evolves a new style, laying the geometry of civilization over familiar organic forms and substituting the stuff of the 21st century for nature-inspired Neolithic signs and symbols. All of th... [more]

(Image: Grzegorz Czarnecki, ONLY YOU, 2011, wood, 40 x 30 x 1 inches; © Grzegorz Czarnecki)   Grzegorz Czarnecki (b. 1972, Lomza, Poland) MARQUETRY or wood decorative artistry is considered to be one of the most difficult arts. Besides unrepeatable skills, it requires patience, engagement, and unprecedented precision from a craftsman.  A beautiful item of marquetry is the fruit of a long and detailed process of picking, cutting, placing, and gluing which takes a long time. In a traditional te... [more]

Gatson combines source materials and reference points from America’s racial history in a kaleidoscopic array ranging from almost abstract to overtly political. In Nigeria P... [more]
