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 plasticit... [more]

Call for art: BODY and SOUL  
Posted 12/27/14

BODY and SOUL, the 2015 Kreft Juried National Exhibition (March 24-April12), will examine and illustrate the relationship between these two entities. Coupling them immediately suggests pairs of opposites: physical and metaphysical, flesh and spirit, earth and heaven. How do we live in the body and yet recognize and celebrate the soul? How is one manifested through the other? What do they tell us about the nature of human personhood? What might it mean to be “soulful”?Prints, drawings, painti... [more]

Art or Not?

12/18/14 Posted 12/18/14

Art or Not? Who is to say what is art or not? One of the pictures with description below is a genuine art work: every Friday ArtSlant asks our discerning readers if they can spot the difference. This week: Errant appendages #1 This artist's hyperreal sculptures examine the fragility of the human body. Prosthetics are a frequent interest in his celebrated body of work spanning 1985-1993, which deals with the artist's personal experiences and seeks to redress the way we look at disability; the abandoned...

Following Francesco Clemente's Fantastic Voyage   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Francesco Clemente at Rubin Museum of Art September 5th - February 2nd, 2015
Posted 12/18/14

The original impulse in my life as an artist was to write and to break from writing into image... Art is the last oral tradition alive in the West. —Francesco Clemente Francesco Clemente, the nomadic Neo-Expressionist painter and sculptor, continues to pursue his travels and artistic investigations, and, fortunately for New Yorkers this season, has brought back the resulting documents in two concurrent shows: Francesco Clemente: Inspired by India, at the Rubin Museum and Two Tents at...

First Look at Ólafur Elíasson's Inaugural Exhibition at the Louis Vuitton Foundation  
by
12/18/14 Posted 12/18/14

We're huge Ólafur Eliasson fans at ArtSlant. His sensitivity to site-specificity and deft hand at magical transformation through the merging of science and art is unique to say the least. Eliasson was tapped by the Louis Vuitton Foundation and their curatorial team lead by Suzanne Pagé to inaugurate Paris' newest museum designed by starchitect, Frank Gehry. Eliasson's installation Inside the Horizon—a series of mirrored, yellow columns—will also be permanently fe... [more]

Frank Wisdom: An interview with Joanne Greenbaum  
by
12/14/14 Posted 12/14/14

Joanne Greenbaum is not one of those theoretical types – she is frank, funny and bleeds New York in everything she does. Since the 1980s, this abstract painter has established herself for covering canvases in bright line work with magic marker, acrylic and oil. Her trademark has been treating the white canvas as map, filled with patterns that resemble city grids. It’s as if “Broadway Boogie Woogie” by Piet Mondrian was painted freehand and with more layered graphic composi... [more]

Joanne Greenbaum is not one of those theoretical types—she is frank, funny, and bleeds New York in everything she does. Over the past couple decades this abstract painter has established herself for covering canvases in bright line work with magic marker, acrylic and oil.

12/12/14 Posted 12/12/14

A significant moment for African American artists from the Southern states: the Souls Grown Deep Foundation, an organisation dedicated to the documentation and archiving of Outsider African American Art, has donated 57 works to New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art collection. The works speak of a period in Art History that has received little attention until now, that began during the days of slavery and subsequent segretation in the Deep South, and evolved during the Civil Rights Movement in...

What Is It About Tom Friedman's Up in the Air?   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Tom Friedman at Tel-Aviv Museum of Art November 17th - March 15th, 2015
Posted 12/10/14

900 sculptures of everyday objects that together comprise the work Up in the Air by Tom Friedman have arrived at the Tel Aviv Museum. Suspended from the museum's ceiling, pieces of chewing gum, miniature planes, sporting equipment, and fragments of fencing float alongside other recognizable tropes in Friedman's iconography such as crumpled boxes of cereal, cigarettes, FedEx, and big burgers, exploded into space. The piece debuted four years ago at Switzerland's Magasin III gallery last year. Its orbit now continues in Israel where it has recently been installed, and... [more]

A Street Artist Tackles Sculpture: In the Studio with eL Seed  
by
12/9/14 Posted 12/9/14

Street artist eL Seed introduced calligraffiti (a marriage of traditional Arabic calligraphy and contemporary graffiti) to the Arab world in 2012 when he famously painted a Koranic verse calling for tolerance onto the façade of the Jara Mosque’s minaret in his ancestral town of Gabes, Tunisia. Although his work is not political, eL Seed rapidly became the high profile poster artist for Arabic graffiti, with a collaboration with Louis Vuitton, a public art project painting 73 meters...

The ways by which men arrive at knowledge of the celestial things are hardly less wonderful than the nature of these things themselves. —Johannes Kepler Walking down Franklin Boulevard in Chicago’s Garfield Park, an otherwise nondescript bungalow stands out because of the strange, multicolored rock jutting out of its front yard; this object—like a meteor from a sci-fi B movie—hovers over 10 feet above the ground, mounted on a long metal pole. It marks the beginning of... [more]

Texture Trip: Surreal Substances in Art   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Posted 12/8/14

Paint, in its ancient origins, was made from available materials: egg yolks to bind, sand, soil, plants, and so on for pigment. The whole process of manufacturing materials to make art has been steadily removed from the artistic process over time, but some artists still introduce the physical messiness of making art, by remolding everyday materials to provoke uncanny, humorous—and often, revolting—reactions to substance in the viewer. They might arouse strong responses, but they als... [more]

Alternative Waters: a Personal View of Recent Macri Portraits by Kenneth Radu  
by
12/6/14 Posted 12/6/14

Part I People familiar with Adamo Macri’s portraits may well experience an aesthetic shock to see a picture of the artist with his eyes wide open. So many of his self-portraits depict the eyes averted, lowered, askance, or rarely looking directly at the viewer that I was taken aback by a recent picture, entitled Damo, 2013. There are a few other pictures in his Facebook oeuvre wherein the artist opens his eyes and stares out of the canvas, Self-Portrait, 2013, for example, but that is... [more]

A Play on Material: Oren Pinhassi   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Posted 12/5/14

Material can be transcendent. Postmodernism is failing. History is a spiral. These three assumptions underlie Oren Pinhassi’s work. Beginning with the familiar—towels, a backpack, a dwelling—objects are transformed through the addition of another common material, plaster. Through this addition, he transubstantiates the everyday into thematic sculptural and architectural forms, an act that Pinhassi describes as transcendent. There is a key definition being explored throug... [more]
