ROMANOVA SVETLANA-ART

         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]

30 Years of The Turner Prize: 10 Most Notorious Entries  
by
Duncan Campbell, Ciara Phillips, James Richards, Tris Vonna-Michell at Tate Britain 10/19/14 Posted 10/19/14

It's Turner Prize time again. Britain’s most hated art award celebrates its 30th year this year. What has it achieved in over three decades? For one thing – its brought contemporary British art to the public attention – mostly to be lampooned by the tabloids. Who can forget headlines surrounding Tracey Emin’s winning entry My Bed (dubbed ‘My Turd’ by Private Eye) or the fury roused by Damien Hirst’s formaldehyde tiger shark entry in 1992? The “national joke” has provoked walk outs and protests (the Stuckist... [more]

Who is Responsible for the American Dream?   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Josef Strau at Renaissance Society September 21st - November 9th
Posted 10/17/14

I had a dream a couple years ago in which a new, previously unknown continent was discovered on Earth. The knowledge entered my consciousness first like the ambient news of a radio dispatch. It was an impersonal knowledge, born through the slippery medium of dream space, the source of the transmission overlooked as my dream self wondered instead about the profound consequence such a discovery might have on the rest of humankind. The next thing I remember is that I stood on the ground of the new cou... [more]

Frieze Previews: Digital Discussions and Genderless Aliens   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

We've already recommeded Disabled Theatre, a "hip hop party"-like performance, and a Frieze Project at the zoo. Here are a few more events and performances to look out for this week: Part of ICA London's Off-Site programme during Frieze this year is a series of panel discussions organized in collaboration with Rhizome. Taking place from Wednesday to Friday, the three panels of "Do you Follow? Art in Circulation" will focus on the politics of digital circulation and its effect on contemporary art... [more]

Ed Fornieles: Post-Internet Art and the Modern Family   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Ed Fornieles at Chisenhale Gallery September 19th - November 9th
Posted 10/12/14

In the run up to Ed Fornieles’ solo show, Chisenhale Gallery's Instagram feed was peppered with quick-moving pictures of wholesome family activities—brightly colored breakfast cereals, food porn and sleeping infants, angelic kids growing up to uplifting muzak, hand-holding—some of which descend into destruction, fire, or violence. Other images remained open-ended, such as the repeated phrase "Be Yourself." Fornieles, a British artist now working in LA, who was part of Sarah McC... [more]

How to get an honest opinion about your artwork   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Jonas Lund at Boetzelaer|Nispen September 6th - October 11th
Posted 10/9/14

"Empty, alienating, soul-less, superficial, formulaic, repetitive, awkward, thick, one-dimensional… Imitation of bad work does not flatter." "Yet another denim jeans riff on Yves Klein." "DESTROY." These are the types of criticisms Jonas Lund’s paintings have been receiving lately, but the Amsterdam-based Swedish artist is likely unconcerned. The offending artworks were not yet his—and it appears they never will be. While the works were made at his behest following guidelines from a 300... [more]

I will be showing work from my Portrait Series at T.A.A.G. in Gallery 2, Northumberland Square, Teignmouth, Devon, from 25th to 31st October 2014. The work on show will be exclusively Mixed Media Collage pieces. This series uses a combination of photomontage, collage and paint and was started in 2011, now numbering over 40 individual works.

The Matchbox Series.  
by
10/7/14 Posted 10/7/14

Many of the pictures featured on my site are part of the Matchbox Series. Here I have used matchbox fronts as a starting point for paintings. The variety of typography and visual elements gave me inspiration for colour treatments and contextual references. The idea of using matchboxes has it's own link to a past, a world which has all but dissapeared today. The marriage of contemporary painting and old graphic design is of interest to me, as a certain pathos results when the old, often iconic, oft... [more]

@richardprince4: Who are the other Richard Princes?   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Posted 10/2/14

Update October 6, 2014: In a further twist to the RP4 tale, Instagram has started to dump previous images posted by the artist (including the ones we had linked to here, now obsolete). The reasons behind these mysterious recent movements on the (at the time of writing) still active account are unclear: a warning from the Instagram authorities? Or a classic Prince joke? In his latest post, two women are captured mid-conversation on a sofa. Above them hangs the infamous Untitled (Cowboy), the artist's first... [more]

Bowie Victims: Confessions from David Bowie Is at the MCA Chicago   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

I’m not sure exactly what Jon Savage meant when he referred to “Bowie victims” in his book about the birth of punk rock, England’s Dreaming, but ever since I read that phrase it stuck with me. In a way I identified with it—being a big David Bowie adherent—and didn’t necessarily consider it as a derogatory term. I figure he meant teens obsessed with Bowie, the young androgynes with their flared high waters and platform boots, teased mullets and green eye mak... [more]

Art from Music <----> Music from Art  
by
9/29/14 Posted 10/14/14

...In thinking about the act of choreography, the concept of visualizing music is one that has inspired my work - particularly this past year, in my paintings which illustrate personal responses to different songs. For example, my print above is a metaphorical mashup of Prince and Bob Dylan, combining lyrics and concepts from both artists. There is an interesting quote from Balanchine on Ballet Austin's site about making art from music: "Music like Stravinsky’s cannot be illustrated; one... [more]

Architecture Dramas

My first introduction to performance art that reclaims public and architectural spaces was meeting the brilliantNoemie LaFrance, acclaimed site-specific Choreographer, Director and Producer of Sens Production, in 2003 in New York City. Subsequently I attended her debut work, "Descent" which took place on a spiraling staircase. Having also created a piece on a stairwell that I'd titled the same name, I connected with LaFrance's creative vision. Here is my "Descent" image which I shot in 1999 ato... [more]

The long stretch of Santa Monica where I once-upon-a-time commuted from a humble craftsman with more roommates than there were rooms to a chi-chi boutique where the diamonds in my charge were given more room to breathe than my fellow tuna-canned bus passengers pressed together in mutually unsatisfactory intimacy. The mood, demeanor, and politics of any given day were, to an extent, influenced by the mode of transportation that morning: bus, bike, lurchy pre-owned vehicle about the same age as m... [more]
