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]

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]
We cannot begin any assessment of the work of Frank Stella without the obligatory quote that has followed his career for over fifty years. “What you see is what you see” was Stella’s painterly philosophy distilled down to seven words. If there is a definition of Minimalism that is more succinct, it has yet to replace Stella’s as a key to understanding a certain type of particularly American painting in mid-century art history.
At the Whitney Museum we have a chance to ca... [more]
Collezione Peggy Guggenheim (Peggy Guggenheim Collection), located in an unfinished 18th-century palace, Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, boasts many modern masterpieces ranging in style from Cubism and Surrealism to Abstract Expressionism. One of my favorite work there was a sculpture in the garden: The Cloven Viscount (Il visconte dimezzato) by Mimmo Paladino, which was simultaneously formal and fluid, familiar and strange, comforting and unsettling. The figure, installed inside a small square bri... [more]

Jared Madere’s untitled installation, currently on view at the Whitney, is versatile. It might rest equally comfortably in an abandoned lot in Bushwick or on top of a mountain in Nepal. It’s hard to tell, though, whether the work is happy in its current environment, the John R. Eckel, Jr. Foundation Gallery on the first floor. Curated by Christopher Y. Lew, who was recently named co-curator of the 2017 Whitney Biennial with Mia Locks, this is Madere’s first solo exhibition as well a... [more]

For hundreds of refugees, seeking escape from war-torn Syria and access to a better life in Europe, witnessing the destruction of their homeland and suffering through dangerous travel over land and sea is apparently not enough—not if they land in the Czech Republic. One human rights official recently found deplorable conditions at one of the four Czech refugee camps, which are housed in former prisons and military facilities “that in many respects offers worse conditions than Czech prisons.” The migrants are brought to the facilities in handcu...

Private collections are often born of a profound personal interest—a genuine passion devoted to a very specific subject or object that extends beyond financial return. In their devotional breadth and depth, private collections sometimes inadvertently become talismanic, unearthing artwork that might have otherwise remained distant. Perhaps it's that magical fascination that inspires public explorations and attracts new audiences. One such unusual and influential collection is that of Sydney L. Mos... [more]

On Saturday, October 31st, when all of New York was abuzz with Halloween fun and fright, the last of chashama 461 Studio & Gallery artists were emptying their contents into U-Haul trucks, donation bins and dumpsters. The building, located at 461 West 126th Street in Harlem’s factory district, is now closed after eight years of service to working artists and the Harlem arts community at-large.
At any given time, chashama – which means “to have vision” – operates between 15-25... [more]
Stark rattling creeps in. After a few seconds, an initial pang of sound smooths into a pervasive noise that induces a feeling of anxious, indistinguishable energy. Did I walk into the gallery’s theater feeling like this?, I think to myself, but I can’t recall. Old black and white images of the desert alternate between present day images of the same scene; the now diffused rattling rolls into booming drums when a large magenta font flashes onscreen: OBI SUNT

Last night I attended the opening of the incredibly lovely exhibition, Without/Color. At Figureworks in Williamsburg, this show currently features three artists (there will be a second iteration of the show with an additional three artists). The first room features evocative pencil drawings of female figures by Joanne Scott. The second room features haunting watercolors by Meridith McNeal. Both rooms are guarded over by intricate and powerful terra-cotta ravens by Alexander Ney. There is a heavy softn... [more]
