by
Cornelia Hediger at KLOMPCHING GALLERY September 7th, 2011 - October 21st, 2011
Posted 9/8/11

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, September 7, 2011 Split Images, One Personality — Rebecca Horne Photographer Cornelia Heidger left Switzerland for Harlem 10 years ago, and she feels more at home in New York. This is no surprise: As an artist, she is well acquainted with srong contrasts and dualities. In her composite photogrpahs, many of which play out a narrative between a main character and one or more doubles, Ms. Hediger plays all the parts, often confronting or consoling herself. On Wednesday,... [more]

Sara Greenberger Rafferty: On Our New York Watchlist  
by
8/16/11 Posted 8/16/11

(Image:Sara Greenberger Rafferty, Viewer, 2011, print; © Sara Greenberger Rafferty) Sara Greenberger Rafferty (b. Chicago, Illinois) In this print, Greenberger Rafferty intervenes in a still of Madeline Kahn with stains reminiscent of blood, saliva and tears, and pencil lines that trace a pair of glasses around the actress's obscured eyes. The resulting image, decidedly ghostly, hovers between photography, collage and watercolor. Sara Greenberger Rafferty's work is inspired by myriad sourc... [more]

20110411085720-rozenman_alexandra An essay about Rozenmna's work by Joseph Mendelsohn  
by
Alexandra Rozenman at Contemporary Art Network May 3rd, 2011 - May 27th, 2011
Posted 4/14/11

In an interview, Alexandra Rozenman spoke of, “[t]he longing for a common, known space” as a key to her imagery. She goes on to say that she wants the viewer to enter her painting like an actor whose identity is subsumed by a role. In AFLOAT, Rozenman’s recent series of paintings, the shared theatrical space is an aqueous atmosphere that resembles a pond or flooded earth. It is a precinct of dreams somewhere between liquid memory and the solid remnants of reality at the water’s edge. There is somet... [more]

by
Joshua Abelow at James Fuentes LLC/New York January 13th, 2011 - February 13th, 2011
Posted 2/13/11

A series of drawings on display through February 13th at the James Fuentes Gallery chronicles the struggles of The Artist, a wild, spiral-eyed, long-nosed character who resembles Joshua Abelow, his creator, reflected in a funhouse mirror. The Artist is always naked, and naked in a completely vulnerable way, his body articulated by clownishly rubbery contours and scribbled hairs radiating from his nipples and bunching in crude squiggles over his erect penis. A goofy invertebrate, The Artist wobb... [more]

 (Image: Diana Santiago, Charli pulling out her curlers, 2008, charcoal on paper, 24 x 36 in.; © Diana Santiago) Through the fluctuating mixed media of drawing, painting, installation and photography I create art that retains a cultural translation of experience and sentiment. Visions of perpetuated femininity and the distorted social roles of the modern woman. A series of multifaceted and contradictory autobiographies played out by various characters. I grew up on the lower east side... [more]

CCNY 00 65 55 (Blog), December 2, 2010 Review — Abigail Simon The term “portrait” as generally understood, comes with a contingent assumption of specificity: it is assumed to be “of” someone, a specific person at a certain moment in time. We are by now familiar, in the rarefied air of our fine-art-ness, with the usual interrogations of this assumption: can we ever really know anything about a person from their surface, is the portrait of the photographer or the sitter, ranging all the...

Jim Naughten's "Re-Enactors" Exhibition at Klompching Gallery Written by Trent Davis Bailey Photography has long held an intrinsic relationship with war. As early as the 1860s, photographers such as Matthew Brady, Alexander Gardner, Timothy O'Sullivan, and George P. Barnard all directed their photographic efforts to memorializing — and often monumentalizing — the transitory scenes of the battlefield. So, shouldn't there be a natural, if not necessary, place for such a photographer at a modern-d... [more]

FOTO8, November, 2010 Re-enactors — Guy Lane If it is true that history repeats itself – first tragically, and then farcically – the implications are not good for the legions of civilian combatants whose weekends are devoted to the faithful re-enactment of battles and military manoeuvres. Judging by the work of photographer Jim Naughten, currently on show in New York’s Klompching gallery, tragicomedy stalks the latter-day gunners, Cossacks, Panzermen and Home Guard. Naughten worked for t... [more]

CARBON COPY (blog), September 9, 2010 Mr. Toledano Takes Over Brooklyn — Elizabeth Unterman It is very exciting for me to see this work by one of my favorite artists, Phillip Toledano, at one of my favorite galleries in NYC, Klompching Gallery.

WAYNE FORD's POSTEROUS, September 5, 2010 A New Kind Of Beauty by Phillip Toledan — Wayne Ford ‘Photographs should be like unfinished sentences. There should always be space for questions,’ believes British born photographer Phillip Toledano, and there are many questions raised in his latest series, A New Kind of Beauty, which is currently on show at New York’s Klompching gallery. Toledano’s photography is routed in social-political commentary, with his previous bodies of work including, Phonesex... [more]
