Hello frends! I am an artist. My roots take place in St.Petersburg, which has great architecture, culture and history that influenced me once and forever. Today, in the times of technical progress, mass production and new artificial materials I search for inspiration in the foundation of the Arts - old Russian Orthodox icons, Renaissance and folk cultures. I seek out look for new shapes and images within my themes using different materials, but my favorite is glass for its plasticit... [more]

This past Friday (June 6th), Spencer christened the new space with 20 spatially demanding and visually vibrant works in oil and acrylic for the exhibition, "Abstractions." The complex, layered works range in color from sunset reds and oranges to warm and playful fuschias to el... [more]

Elizabeth Hoeveler (ASC) commenting Immo Jalass's artworks
How many dimensions can we see? Three, on a 'normal day. On a 'normal' day, however, I might be fooled into thinking I'm somewhere else - or many other places at the same time, while looking at Immo Jalass's digital offerings. I can cross dimensions and have a foot in several. I can extend the one dimension I'm in and reshape it to my wish. I can focus on a fruit color and have that color move back or forward out of the fruit bowl. Immo Jala... [more]
In October 2013, Joanna Kamm hosted the Karl Larsson exhibition Twelve Hours at her Berlin-Mitte gallery, Galerie Kamm. In 2014, a metaphorical twelve months later, the title has appeared in the gallery once again, playing host to a familiar roster of works save for select new additions. One such alteration is a shallow scratch in the plaster wall at the gallery’s entrance. The gash, Form Was Not Born From An Idea, It Was An Idea Vanishing, sets the tone for this re-visitation.
The exhibi... [more]

Come view the most recent works added to the RSMITHINGS.com portfolio of surreal photomontage creations. Three new pieces have just been added: “Until We Meet Again” (above), “Transitional,” and “Be The Butterfly” (below, respectively). Each came about only in the last few weeks or months, and rides along a theme of nature and mystery, incorporating elements from my local area. Links to source files also illustrate the creation process in these pieces. “Be T... [more]
I have about a year left with school at Parsons in New York City, and I have put more energy into learning about grids than paint. Although the upside is also knowing about my new favorite, digital illustration. I have finally take a summer off to get back into my art work with over two years worth of ideas to start creating. I am excited to go to Art Basel in Base Switzerlandl this year to see the original birth place of Art Basel. Regardless of what other people think, I feel art is only on... [more]

June 14th - June 22nd
Much more interesting than the description of the 14 Rooms performance series, which will take place as part of Art Basel and is organized by star-curators Klaus Biesenbach and Hans Ulrich Obrist, is its call out for participants/performers to take part in it: “If you have an identical twin, use the opportunity to be part of Damien Hirst’s work. War veterans are sought after for part of Santiago Sierra’s performance, and anyone who speaks colloquial British-English and is similar in appear... [more]
