In the early hours of opening day at Rhypark, a gentle rain falls upon Basel. While the sun tries to break through the overcast clouds, the weather cannot squash the fact that the city is already illuminated by art and global attention. The Rhy Art Fair is the newest addition to the fair circuit, making its Basel debut this year. Presented by the Swiss organizer Contemporary Art International Zurich (founded in 1999 and now celebrating its 17th year) Rhy Art Fair showcases emerging talent in Basel. Wi... [more]

The utterance of “Basel” rolls off the tongue like a whisper. No matter the inflection or language in which it’s spoken, the name of the small city in Switzerland is synonymous with one of the most influential art fairs of the calendar year. For a single week in the middle of June nearly all hotels are booked. The quaint and picturesque city in Northern Switzerland that straddles France and Germany, measuring a mere 9.2 square miles, becomes an international hub where hundreds... [more]

The Human Form Illuminated  
by
Mary Heebner at Edward Cella Art & Architecture March 6th, 2010 - April 17th, 2010
Posted 3/8/10
      In Mary Heebner’s new body of work Intimacies/Intimismos there is the suggestion of the male and female form, illuminated by a selective arsenal of materials including powdered copper pigment, watercolor and graphite on rag and Sekishu paper, but never once does Heebner objectify the body.  The site where the streams seep into the ocean causing a ripple in the tide inspires “Wetlands Muse." Heebner’s rich palette of Copper, Ochre, and Rose transforms the body into ripples in the sand an... [more]

Dora De Larios retrospective at Craft and Folk Art Museum  
by
Dora Delarios at Craft and Folk Art Museum September 27th, 2009 - January 10th, 2010
Posted 12/13/09
  The dynamic and eclectic body of work in the CAFAM retrospective of Dora De Larios celebrates 50 years of the artist’s work and life. A native Angelino, Larios grew up in a downtown neighborhood where Japanese and Mexican cultures co-existed. Her exposure to diverse cultures, religions, and art runs like an artery through Larios’ own work that embraces the viewer in a rich tapestry that delicately weaves the earthly and the surreal, the utterly fantastical and the escape into reverie. The... [more]
Eye of the Camera   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8

      The eye of the camera is the ultimate “keeper of light.” The show on view now at Sandroni.Rey expresses a concern for portraiture and the representation of the self, more specifically how photographic techniques can manipulate identity. The principal works are two daguerreotypes by Chuck Close, one a self-portrait and the other a sunflower.  The daguerreotype is anchored in the history of photography and Close’s integration of it into the show presents an old way to look at yourself in...
