by
Knox Martin at Janos Gat Gallery > New York
April 29th, 2003 - September 12th, 2003
Posted 4/19/14

Knox Martin at Janos Gat: A review of Caprichos by Edward Leffingwell Knox Martin named his new series of generously scaled, unframed drawings "Caprichos" for the moralizing, didactic, fever-dream etchings of Goya that first attracted him as a child, 67 years ago. But there is substantial whimsy to Martin's recent phantasmagoria of animal and human forms. Ranging from roughly 2 to 7 feet on a side, they are confident, loosely drawn in pen and ink, crayon and watercolor on thin sheets of paper,... [more]

20140326233304-00120140327 NGMA and the Amrita Sher-Gill retrospective  
by
Amrita Sher-Gil at National Gallery Of Modern Art - NGMA Bengaluru > India
March 30th - April 30th
Posted 4/15/14

Let me start with a small proviso which may get me booted out of your reading list. I saw the exhibition at the NGMA in New Delhi. However, given my views on the Bangalore NGMA (http://dillikidiva24.blogspot.in/2012/12/name-that-city.html), I'm pretty sure the exhibition will be similiar. ah well, here goes nothing.. If theres one painter from India people have heard of, chances are that it's Amrita Sher-Gill. She lived for only 28 years (1913- 1941) across two continents in four countries, was famous for her personal life (... [more]

20140313014942-kunstsammlung_k20_malewitsch_01 A Symbol of a Future World  
by
Wassily Kandinsky, Kasimir Malevich, Piet Mondrian at K20 GRABBEPLATZ > Worldwide Düsseldorf
April 5th - July 6th
Posted 4/9/14

White is the first thing that strikes one entering the Infinite White Abyss at K20 Grabbeplatz. Not necessarily Kandinsky’s white, although his masterpiece greets the visitor, but rather the white of the exhibition space itself, an island of haute-design white floating in the middle of a black gallery cube. Also, watch your step – the white space is necessarily and symbolically raised just 3 cm above floor level and that edge is (perhaps also symbolically) unmarked. Falling unwarned... [more]

20140313154726-bulltablepainting An Exercise in Looking Closely  
by
Louise Hopkins at Mummery + Schnelle > London
March 19th - May 3rd
Posted 3/26/14

In this exhibition, Louise Hopkins continues her exploration of everyday surfaces, including maps, magazine pages, and photographs. In each case, Hopkins manages to find a way to deal with each surface/object such that it becomes converted into a painting. Her works on maps are a case in point. For one work, she has painted over all the countries on the map with blue paint, matching the blue of the sea. On first seeing the work, you encounter a monochromatic painting. Closer inspection reveals t... [more]

Knox Martin Shines at LGTripp Gallery | Philadelphia In a theater in the Old City neighborhood of Philadelphia on Saturday afternoon, we gathered shoulder-to-shoulder and to standing-room only capacity, to hear Knox Martin talk art. A true privilege to listen to the master artist, Knox enlightened us about the significance of 17th-century Dutch painters and placed their authority firmly in the history of art. He gifted us with the knowledge of Joan Miró, influenced by the Du... [more]
