Lizzie Scott

by Robert J. Hughes
The shapes of the urban landscape are really also those of the countryside, a series of pyramids, ovals, squares that create patterns for our eye to ignore or delight in. Only, generally, the city features manmade rather than the natural vistas most of us like to believe we prefer. Few people actually delight in the way the city landscape shifts. For the bulk of us, a sidewalk is an obstacle course of sifting detours from drains, grates, bumps. Everything gets in the way of our getting someplace. Cities aren't made for the contemplative life. Unless you're Lizzie Scott. "Floating Island," her n... [more]

Like a Moth Flapping

by Robert J. Hughes
The limits of how life and objects are represented, even the very nature of how we see, have been at the heart of photography since its inception. And as the decades passed and photography matured, the realism of the photographic world – always a mutable concept given the way one could manipulate film – flapped like a moth against the libidinous light of abstract expressionism in the mid-20th century, which was not about representation at all, but being. Yet the two forms coexisted in different corners. Think of the age of news magazines, when the world was represented in dramatic stills,... [more]

Inspired by history

        John Tevis is pleased to present The Cones, an exhibition of new work by Tyler Vlahovich, opening March 20 and continuing through April 24, 2010.  An opening reception for the artist will be held Saturday, March 20 from 6:00 – 8:00pm. The paintings, drawings and sculptures in Tyler Vlahovich’s The Cones resuscitate and modify aspects of art history from Chinese wall painting to Meso-American calligraphy. Seduced by the narrative style of cave and wall paintings found in the ancient Silk Road town of Tun-huang in western China, the artist loosely divides the picture space in his new... [more]

Josh Blackwell

    John Tevis is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by Josh Blackwell, Paper and Plastic, opening January 9 and continuing through February 13, 2010. The gallery will exhibit three of Josh Blackwell’s paper garments, which resemble awkward, colorful silhouettes. Shapeless and sexy, these genderless garments vacillate between figural study and playful formalism.  An installation of semi-degraded plastic bags sewn shut with woolen yarn is also featured.  Exploring the physicality of color and texture, the surface of these works is created through a series of repetitive interventions which...
