(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]

(Image: Maria Kondratiev, Searching While You Sleepwalk, 2011, goauche, acrylic, and ink on mylar, 16x20; © Maria Kondratiev) Maria Kondratiev (b. 1983, St.Petersburg; Russia) The immediate act of mark making is the foundation for my work.  The mark itself is an event; it is a clue to pre-conscious thought.  What is projected may derive from a thought, a dream sequence, or what seems like nothing at all.  The result is an exploration of an inner world. The images I depict are ephemeral and... [more]

These are dark motifs, but then again, could it be that what we perceive as gloom – conveyed through phenomena such as deterioration, decadenc... [more]

Posted 10/6/11

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]

UNLESS YOU WILL, September 23, 2011 Illusionary Dialogue — Heidi Romano So tomorrow is Saturday and I am in NY. Maybe I recently moved to NY, or better, I am there for a few exciting meetings… So how about a lovely breakfast in my recently discovered cute cafe?

Breakfast was fun, but seeing that it is such a stunning autumn morning, we wander around the streets, pop into that cute book shop, buy a present in that sec... [more]

(Excerpt from 'China-ism II: Democracy or Economy?' posted on White Box. Found on Showing works by Anton S. Kandinksy and Ai Weiwei. Curated by David Rong and Alex Demko. China has galvanized a powerhouse economy, and its contemporary art is now in a state to deliver a Viagra effect to the contemporary art world at large. When Andy Warhol transformed Mao into a pop art icon through his larger than life portrait, Mao entered the international art scen... [more]

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, a new e... [more]

Sara Greenberger Rafferty: On Our New York Watchlist  
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 sources, includi... [more]

20110411085720-rozenman_alexandra An essay about Rozenmna's work by Joseph Mendelsohn  
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]

20110111223108-2 Avatar: Portrait of the Artist  
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]

Meet Diana Santiago - an artist from New York  
1/3/11 Posted 1/3/11

 (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 of Man... [more]

Posted 12/2/10

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...
