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]
Human sounds of drinking, whispering, laughing, and singing surround the old British Army magazine building of the Serpentine Sackler Gallery. The sounds combine from the three parts of the video work Ribbons (2014), which is the central piece of Ed Atkins’ solo show. The voices are as memorizing and disturbing as the hyper-real 3D animated films they accompany.
The sound goes out of sync and back again; the three parts of Ribbons are similar and different at the same time. In all three,... [more]

Paul Chan, born in 1973, is a child of his time. He has cast aside modernism’s Big Ideas and is free of any kind of canon. He refers just as easily to French philosopher Charles Fourier (1772-1837) as he does to hip hop star Jay-Z. The Old Testament, hardcore porn, Samuel Beckett, daytime TV, the Black Panthers, Guy Debord and his Society of the Spectacle—for Chan this is all source material of equal value and utility.
Chan is beyond postmodernism as well, though. He does not play non... [more]
Spencer and Dana Rogers, the dynamic duo of creative portrait photography in the South Loop, have refurbed their extensive Printer's Row studio space into a contemporary yet comfortably labyrinthine visual art gallery. 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]

In the sprawling exhibition Everything Loose Will Land, currently on view at the Graham Foundation, curator Sylvia Lavin deftly tells the story how the worlds of art, architecture, and urban design came together in fantastical and bizarre ways throughout the 1970s. The title comes from a supposed quotation by Frank Lloyd Wright: “Tip the world over on its side and everything loose will land in Los Angeles.” The exhibition is packed with architectural models, building plans, sculptures...

Here, the process and patterning of quiltmaking multifariously inspires. The repetitive tattoo of the sewing machine, the lush and rough textures of fabrics, and the echoing generational symbols of the tradition thread their way through varied works. Each artist concentrates upon, refines, or abstracts individual facets of the rich history of the quilt-as-medium, using it as a launching point for experimental explorations in the present.
At its simplest, the mathematical construction of the qui... [more]
Hello, again! Wow, the time passes fast!
This week I’ve been drawing, cutting out and arranging text, and in general playing around with themes and visual elements. I’ve been thinking about how cultures absorb each other, whether uneasily or wholeheartedly. If I were to imagine a Venn diagram of French-American cultural absorption, the shape would be awkward and squiggly, with dramatically incomplete or partial overlaps. The phenomena that I’ve been tracking, the media onslaught... [more]

In their two-person exhibition, Ryan Lauderdale and Jessica Sanders present work that takes various approaches to creating physical objects through systematic processes. What’s remarkable is how their works seem to dialogue through the diversity of the basic forms and materials each artist prefers. Lauderdale presents hard-edged, technological lamp-like wall sculptures while Sanders is showing two focused groups of paintings that use the properties of beeswax over linen. Their works are disp...

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.
