Natali Bravo-Barbee Answers 5 Questions

by The Artslant Team
Natali Bravo-Barbee.   What are you trying to communicate with your work? In my work, I like to think I communicate the importance of time via objects. I am a photographer, and for 20 years I have been capturing and hoarding memories. Snapping photos of precious moments, moments that I deemed as precious. Not everyone agrees in the moment, but I believe the phrase “hindsight is 20/20” is exactly what photography does. So in my work, rather than creating a still life with these... [more]

The Covered Passages of Paris

by Sarah Gasper
The Parisian Arcades, called les passages couverts in French, were created during the 1820s and 1830s and were the centers of the luxury good trade in France. There were around 150 arcades built in the mid-nineteenth century in Paris and they can be considered the ancestors of the modern day shopping mall.  These covered shopping centers would include elegant shops and cafés. Most were constructed using iron and would have glass coverings and have marble or mosaic floors. The first... [more]

The elements of these constructed areas sometimes appear misplaced—ambiguous functions or anachronistic intentions emerge. As a result, the qualities of uncertainty, deficiency, inaccessibility, and... [more]

Healed By the Painting

by James Patrick Benn
Healed by the Painting A few weeks ago I ran across – and then lost the link to - a blog from a remarkable middle-aged woman writer.  Filled with an overwhelming hyperawareness of her physical flaws and psychic troubles, agitated by group travel and an impending fiftieth birthday, she fled one afternoon to Paris’   Standing in the middle of one of those famous elliptical rooms, surrounded by those swaths of swirling blues streaked in whites and pinks and strewn with rose waterlilies...
