Transmitting information is inherent in today’s networked Internet Age. The information structures of our digital surroundings resemble the inner transmitting systems of nerves and their contacts, the synapses. With the help of messenger substances, neurotransmitters like serotonin pass on information and thereby activate the inner neural system. In her installation Conditions for Neurotransmission [P.O.V.] artist Annabelle Craven-Jones visualizes the mutual effects of both information systems and... [more]

by
Josephine Taylor at Catharine Clark Gallery > San Francisco
April 23rd - May 28th
Posted 5/22/16

Currently on show at the Catharine Clark Gallery in San Francisco is "Teenager are Beautiful' a completely none ironic title for a rigorous and subtly sensational exhibition by San Francisco based artist Josephine Taylor. Within the gallery is a series of artworks demonstrating the most recent manifestation of a drawing practise that Taylor has devotedly explored since her MA at the San Francisco Art Institute in 1992. In contrast to her previous large scale ink drawings where Taylor would us... [more]

Picturing the Unsayable: Carl E. Hazlewood by Patricia Spears Jones From the New York Quotidian series, 2012, pigment print, 15 × 10 inches. Images courtesy of the artist and Skoto Gallery, New York. I met Carl Hazlewood in that most millennial of ways: Facebook. His daily postings of his and other artists’ works intrigued me; I had to “friend” him. What started as an interest in daily musings and pictorial renderings became a full-fledged 3D friendship. But Car... [more]

by
at PDX Contemporary Art > Worldwide Portland
January 9th - February 27th
Posted 2/8/16

I stumbled across Liz Robb’s work while walking the streets of Portland in the PDX Window Project, housed by PDX CONTEMPORARY ART. I have always enjoyed the idea of utilizing the gallery window to entice and surprise people walking past and going about their day. The PDX Window Project allows unknowing passers by to interact with contemporary art as well as allows the art to interact more directly with the city environment. I came across Liz Robb’s work in much the same way. I was jus... [more]

It is hard to take any exhibition with a grandiose title such as Photography Since the Millennium seriously, but then again, we are just fifteen years into this new millennium. And there have not been any major strides in photography since the new millennium except for, well, the death of analogue, and video is accessible to all. Goodbye film, hello pixels. Has there been one year since the new millennium that has not seen a new release of cameras with enhanced numbers of pixels? It is the mega... [more]

Posted 10/18/15

Artworks of Daria Kudinova charm with its composition, color palette and diversity of motives. You do not know for sure what kind of structures are presented at them. Is it something biomorphic or technogenic? What do they mean? What is the concept of those paintings? Besides, you will not understand the main idea of Dasha Kudinova’s artworks if you are not familiar with her biography. Before she developed her own style Dasha worked as a fashion photographer and as an assistant of more expe... [more]

László Moholy-Nagy at Santa Barbara Museum of Art > Los Angeles
July 5th, 2015 - September 27th, 2015
Posted 8/2/15

The Paintings of Moholy-Nagy: The Shape of Things to Come puts forth a unique take on Moholy-Nagy's painted work with the incorporation of two interventionist pieces by other creators and a smattering of his own theatrical and photographic works. Due to the technology-based works’ expense and inherent complications, Moholy-Nagy reinvestigated painting as a medium to explore light and optics, while still drawing inspiration from these periodic experiments with other media. Perhaps somewhat mi... [more]

Complete darkness and silence are what the viewers stumble into upon entering the Curve gallery. Following the exhibition assistants’instructions to step down into the gallery proper, the viewers have to be patient and wait. Curiosity, unease and agitation, all come along with the one-minute wait. All of a sudden, a wall of light falls from the above. Undazzling and somewhat misty, the light radiates with epic music. The journey begins. This is Light Echoes, an immersive site-specific installation by... [more]

Metamorphosis VI. Oil on canvas. 1986. Images courtesy Kiran Nadar Museum of Art, Delhi. Contemporary art discourse constantly refers to the male gaze as it stays trained on a female body: longing, projecting, mapping, invading. But when the male gaze turns inwards, towards its host male body, not... [more]

This exhibition is called Private and Confidential, the pieces are beautifully framed prints, that vibrate with luminous colour and luscious brush strokes, these seductive effects give a warm and enticing atmosphere to the imagery, but underneath is a certain and sudden shock as the mind realises the figurative imagery that challenges the imagination and beckons satire and paradox, and the cartoon, these seem to rent through the surface of appearances.....perhaps to comfort the knowing viewer wi...

International artist Tom Estes has been invited by curator Rebecca Feiner to act as Honorary Mayor of DEN-City1. Estes describes himself as a “Sci-fi inspired Carnival Sideshow Conceptualist, combining a bare-bones formal conceptualism with an eternally adolescent, DIY comic-prank approach”. Organised with Middlesex University, DEN-City1 is part of The London Festival of Architecture, a month long celebration of architectural experimentation, thinking and practice. I’ m sure I...
