Land-Art Legend Nancy Holt Passes On (1938-2014)  
by
2/13/14 Posted 2/13/14

Sun Tunnels (1976) via CLUI Photographer, videographer, and sculptor Nancy Holt, 75, passed away Saturday in Manhattan after fighting a long battle with Leukemia. Holt, best known for her monumental sized sculptures in Southwest, was one of the first, and most notable, pioneers of the Land-art movement of the 60s and 70s. She was a rarity in her time, both as a woman in an art world still largely dominated by men and as an artist eschewing the gallery for on-site installations. Over her fif... [more]

Posted 1/31/14

The practice of collage drew these seven, diverse female artists together about three years ago when they met in a local collage class. Their shared passion for the form held them together after the class disbanded. Ranging in age from mid-40s to 70s, they continued to meet in various configurations and city spaces, talking, thinking and working. The results of their labors, over 100 individually attributed collages, are on view now at La Mama La Galleria at 6 East 1st Street (through Feb. 8). ... [more]

Adel Gorgy at Able Fine Art NY Gallery December 4th, 2013 - December 31st, 2013
Posted 1/27/14

Adel Gorgy, Traces of Pollock #3, 2013, Pigment Print, 40 x 72 in. (100 x 180 cm.) Adel Gorgy, in his current exhibition, Traces of Pollock, de Kooning and Warhol at Able Fine Art NY in Chelsea has brought keen observation, a graceful esthetic and a unique vision and process to an impressive body of work. In the current age of knockoffs and spinoffs, prequels and sequels, true originality of thought and expression, like Adel Gorgy's, is rare and worthy of attention. In a series of photographi...

Yes, Another Art Fair: ArtMiami Acquires the Inaugural Downtown Fair NYC  
by
1/23/14 Posted 1/23/14

The news is just out that ArtMiami LLC has just acquired the Downtown Fair, set to open at the 69th Regiment Armory during Frieze New York. The fair was purchased for an undisclosed price from the previous organizers, who "will not have any involvement or interest in the new fair." I'd never heard of this fair, so I was a bit surprised that ArtMiami—who in 2013 purchased Aqua Art Fair in Miami Beach, and is set to also open a new fair in Silicon Valley in 2014—was announcing a pur...

There is art, and then there is Wild Art. The new Phaidon book from David Carrier and Joachim Pissarro surveys the latter, illustrating a world bursting with creativity. From street art and flash mobs to tattoos and art made by animals, Wild Art documents an incredible array of artistic expressions that are too big, too radical, too kitsch, too wild for the white box. “This is the first book to bring together the visual culture of skaters, surfers, tattooists, club kids and guerilla ac...

Posted 1/17/14

SungRyong Hong, Social Body #16, Pigment Print, 2008 The photographs of SungRyong Hong at Able Fine Art NY Gallery raise many questions and leave the viewer to ponder the relationship between the individual and the human form. His series entitled "Social Body" presents images about manipulation and the challenging of perceptions. They are complex works both technically and conceptually in which Hong brings up, through visual imagery, the social, personal and psychological impacts of the in... [more]

20140101112055-trance Stadia: New Work by Anne Sherwood Pundyk at Susan Eley Fine Art  
by
Anne Sherwood Pundyk at Susan Eley Fine Art November 7th, 2013 - January 5th
Posted 1/16/14

Elizabeth Sadoff, Elizabeth Sadoff Art Advisory, New York, NY I am initially taken by the ferocious activity of Pundyk’s brushwork in this latest exhibition of her work, Stadia, at Susan Eley Fine Art. I am also struck by how familiar this brushwork is, particularly where resolute lines are articulated. I know that I am revisiting a familiar choreography and this is a pleasing revelation. For all the back and forth laying down and subsequent pushing back of her paint, the artist&rsquo... [more]
