ROMANOVA SVETLANA-ART  
by
3/31/20 Posted 3/5/09

         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 plasticity and abi... [more]

I Like Big Butts and I Can Not Lie?  
by
Group Show at Superchief Gallery LA 5/26/15 Posted 5/26/15

Just off a street full of piñatas in DTLA is Superchief Gallery—the younger (but larger) sister of Superchief New York. I was here to see the Booty Worship exhibition, alone, because I couldn’t persuade any of my friends to come down and see a "butt" show with me. My friends have far more taste than I’d realized. I was greeted on arrival by pink curtain flaps resembling a lady’s spread legs. I got out of the taxi, and, conscious that the driver was watching me, sa... [more]

The Awkwardness of Averageness: Raymond Pettibon’s American Sickness  
by
Raymond Pettibon at Regen Projects (Hollywood) 5/26/15 Posted 5/26/15

“I’m not walking down there, there’s a body on the floor.” My friend said. We were coming out of a pizza place that had a gunshot mark in the TV. “Come on, it’s fine. She’s not dead.” As we walked past the disputed human being lying face down in the middle of the stenching sidewalk, she turned on her side and smiled vaguely into the distance with her brown, elderly meth-lined face. Sickness is something you encounter on a daily basis in Los Angel... [more]

The event launched with a VIP reception on Wednesday, May 13th and was open to the public Thursday, May 14th through Sunday, the 17th. FLUX had been hard-fought by its organizer, Leanne Stella of Art in Flux -especially with the building under hard-hat construction up to the eleventh hour. All came together beautifully in the end, and the FLUX Art Fair waxed luminous against a backdrop of higher profile art ev... [more]

Flowers of innocence  
by
5/21/15 Posted 5/21/15

FLOWERS OF INNOCENCE Why is it that so important, it is at the same time so trivial? Why to paint flowers, then we condemn ourselves to be called tandeto artists, decorative and superficial "the transformers' reality? Why do not we have another, as a universal symbol of beauty? Why, then, when we look at growing flowers in macro-scale, eg. The whole top of tulips and gardenia, feel the emotion and joy? Why, then, when we grow flowers in a pot, on a piece of cotton wool, experiencing betrayal, a... [more]

Downloadable document via Scribd “The human body has always been the source of pleasure and revulsion, at once the embodiment of ecstasy and excrement, delight and disgust, beauty and brutality, dream and nightmare.

Tina Barney at Paul Kasmin Gallery - 10th Ave May 7th - June 20th
Posted 5/19/15

Famed for her portrayal of the upper class in New York, New England, and Long Island, Tina Barney’s work is an ethnographic study of the bourgeoisie. The eleven works on view in this retrospective are snapshots from a play where if one stares long enough, one might hear the muffled dialogue of Barney’s subjects travel through time. With shots capturing characters in mid-motion, such as The Reception (1985), the viewer is pulled into the scene right before a significant event is about to o... [more]
