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]

http://tinyurl.com/global-project-series showcasing »urban patterns« — lo-fi photography They surround everyone of us everyday yet still we are rarely perceptive. Visual jewels, usually devoid of humans, a mixture of pattern, color and material. Fluke acts a certain part, things appear or are swallowed by light, a different angle brings to light surprises. Harmony as well as dysphoria exist utterly equitable, and every so often details are the spice. If the “urban pattern... [more]

INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY – COSTUME DRAMA by Peter Popham Colonial rule may be history for the Herero tribe of Namibia but the style conventions of their 19th-century German oppressors live on – albeit with a certain bovine-inspired twist… When European women jettisoned their ankle-length frocks and the multiple petticoats that kept the frocks full and plump, they gained a great deal in the way of freedom. But they lost something, too – and what they lost is brought home by the magnificent presence of the wome... [more]

Posted 10/10/12

            Nocturnes is an elaborately designed book that harmonizes a series of stunning black-and-white photographs with a series of eloquent poems. Each poem, printed on a sheet of vellum, serves as a portal to related, mysterious photographs. True meaning only exists deep down in the observer’s reservoir of nostalgia, the place where we all want to go swim at night, an unpredictable dreamscape where figures and objects pose as symbols of one’s experience. The rhythmic juxtaposition between w... [more]

(Image: Evan Lavine, Falling, Digital Photography,10x10 Inches; © Evan Lavine)   Evan Lavine (b. Long Island, NY) My photography takes a closer look at everyday instances that sometimes go by without notice. With my camera I am able to slow down and capture a single moment, deconstruct it from contextual references and then retell an interestingly layered story with one frame.  These stories are told through the medium of  abstraction, defocusing the lens and most recently – long exposure...
