ROMANOVA SVETLANA-ART

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]

Melting Machismo: Nadia Kaabi-Linke's Fahrenheit 311   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Nadia Kaabi-Linke at Lawrie Shabibi March 16th - May 14th
Posted 3/30/15

Medically speaking, at precisely 311 degrees Fahrenheit, testosterone, the male sex hormone, begins to melt. With her second solo show at Lawrie Shabibi in Dubai, Fahrenheit 311: Seven Legends of Machismo, Nadia Kaabi-Linke presents eight place-centred works that each conduct an autopsy on masculine qualities and myths—from war and glory to violence and heroism. The seven deadly sins run in parallel. In case you need a re-cap of Dante’s Inferno, these are lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath,... [more]

Many thanks to Photo District News online for their news coverage about the recent portraiture work I did during SXSW ! Austin, Texas-based contemporary art photographer Susan Scafati recently shot portraits during South by Southwest (SXSW) — the annual music, film, and interactive festival — from her hometown neighborhood in Austin, Texas. “This is one of my favorite experiences in Austin,” Scafati says. Scafati is drawn to the way that the city transforms itself into a mecca of fes... [more]

Article from Less Common More Sense  
by
3/30/15 Posted 3/30/15

The Burghers of Calais Image from Bouville series and text below is from article in magazine Less Common More Sense, which retells the story of an interaction during the gagging of the Burghers of Calais (outside the Houses of Parliament - London) . Generally speaking it is a cunning plan to climb up onto and off statues as quickly as possible, so I was relatively unimpressed when I head an old voice behind me saying, 'Is this a protest?' 'Not really' I replied politely, as I hung precari... [more]

Performing Tables   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Posted 3/25/15

Laura Letinsky photographs material debris left behind on tabletops. Orange peels, breadcrumbs, partially consumed cakes, wine stains, or sometimes a more theatrical octopus spread out in evocative, transitory constellations. At any moment one imagines a figure will enter the picture frame, destroying the aesthetic confluence in an effort to wipe the table down and deposit all captured remnants in a trashcan. This is partly what’s so compelling about these photographs: framed by the camer... [more]

Henry Taylor Filters Life Through Portraiture   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Henry Taylor at Untitled New York March 1st - April 4th
Posted 3/24/15

Near the entrance of Untitled Gallery on the Lower East Side is a slab of concrete with a shovel stuck into it. Chair legs and wire sprout off the shovel, as do branches wrapped in stretched pantyhose like wings on an urban angel. The shovel’s handle fits into the mouth of a plastic bottle shaped like a fuel container, painted black to resemble an African mask. On the adjacent wall hangs an antique wooden mirror frame, which now holds a hand-drawn Confederate flag found by the artist. Two to... [more]

Barbara T. Smith: The Smell of Almonds: Resin Works at Andrew Kreps  
by
3/21/15 Posted 3/21/15

Yet another criminally underappreciated pioneering female artist receives an overdue solo exhibition decades into her career. A decade and a half of works by Barbara T. Smith, a major figure in the West Coast performance art movement from the late 1960s onward, are currently on show at Andrew Kreps. This show demands and repays attention in equal measure. The focus is specifically on resin works by Smith, notably a glade of tree-sized resin grass. The phrase "blade of grass" has never seemed s... [more]

Subodh Gupta "Seven Billion Light Years" Hauser and Wirth, NYC  
by
3/21/15 Posted 3/21/15

Scale suits some artists as much as it defeats others. This sense of risk is pervasively present in Subodh Gupta's frequently enthralling exhibition at Hauser and Wirth's 18th Street space. Spaces as huge as Hauser and Wirth's can often bring out the worst in artists, a profession not uncongenial to those with a streak of grandiosity. Happily, Gupta understands the nature of scale and spectacle better than most artists of his stature, and, in works like the sculpture, "This is Not a Fountain", th... [more]

The Radiants at Bortolami X w/Green Tea Gallery  
by
3/21/15 Posted 3/21/15

Four years on from the disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi reactor in Japan, radioactive water is still pouring into the sea. In spite of this, life goes on, politicians eat potentially radioactive strawberries for the cameras and something called "art" attempts to process a world as resistant to comprehensibility as the one we call, more or less, home. Into this strange reactor pool comes the show The Radiants bringing together work by Ei Arakawa, Jutta Koether, Sigmar Poke, UNITED BROTHERS and ma... [more]

Tamar Halpern "My Voice at the Pace of Drifting Clouds" at On Stellar Rays  
by
3/21/15 Posted 3/21/15

Painting is perpetually in crisis; rarely does the urgency of the crisis feel as palpable as in Tamar Halpern's show at On Stellar Rays. In an increasingly digital visual eco-system, painters are not forgiven easily if they don't reckon with the changes. Halpern's works-- paintings, in a sense; prints in a sense; even sculptures if looked at in another way--are determined not to be overwritten by the coders. The works, generally a combination of UltraChrome ink on linen and paper with some o... [more]

Toward Perception of Space   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Miriam Böhm at Ratio 3 March 13th - April 25th
Posted 3/18/15

Arriving at the magic hour before dusk, light poured in from the skylights, casting rectangular shapes with shadow lines on the back wall of the gallery, near an assortment of three stoic yet surprisingly dynamic sculptures on pedestals. The sculpture series—titled Mutual—is an exciting new direction for Miriam Böhm, whose work has always incorporated multiple planes or three dimensional elements; until now the end result has always been a photograph. There are a total of five... [more]

Sharjah Biennial 12: The Right to the City  
by
at Sharjah Art Foundation 3/16/15 Posted 3/16/15

It is a pity for someone with a good sense of direction to visit Sharjah Biennial 12 (SB12) at Sharjah Art Foundation. You are given a map with free admission, but I advise that you leave it folded in your back pocket, because the best part of the Biennial involves getting lost in the maze of coral-walled alleyways leading to contemporary galleries that shock in their contrast to the heritage area in which they sit. Turn a corner and you might hit a dead-end; or you could find yourself face to a... [more]
