Mary Weatherford

Mary Weatherford Work from her oeuvre. “Mary Weatherford was sitting in the middle of Los Angeles’s David Kordansky Gallery the day before the opening of her show “Los Angeles” (extended through June 28), her first with the gallery, inspecting her new paintings. Hanging on the walls were large color-driven abstract paintings, each with a neon […]

Emanuel Röhss

Emanuel Röhss Work from Knut Ljungfelt at Project Native Informant. “A mellow lit high end Swedish restaurant interior, February, lunchtime. Where the fuck is Beatrice?, Knut thought, starring at his Bovet Fleurier 46 watch through half closed eyes as he uncomfortably sat waiting at a corner table in restaurant KB downing a vodka tonic. Waiter, […]

Katharina Fengler

Katharina Fengler Work from her oeuvre. “…We probably could have a long conversation now about the terms “pure” and “authentic”. But I have to laugh a bit… did he mean by “vacuum” that he perceives a lot of contemporary art as empty and shallow? I think I understand to some extent what he means. And […]

Sarah Charlesworth

  Sarah Charlesworth Work from her oeuvre. “Ms. Charlesworth was part of a wave of talented artists, many of them women, who rephotographed existing photographs or dissected the medium’s conventions with staged tableaus. This work was an important step between the cerebral rigors of 1970s Conceptual Art and the more permissive image-play of 1980s Pictures […]

Valerie Green

Valerie Green Work from Look Up at Charlie James Gallery. “All the world may once have been a stage, but it is certainly now a screen. In her solo gallery debut at Charlie James, L.A. artist Valerie Green gives us a smartphone eye’s view of the sublime: the sky above our heads. The nine images […]

Anna-Sophie Berger

Anna-Sophie Berger Work from KE-17 JIGSAW KE-03 LARGE PINKING KE-24 SCALLOP KE-16 POSTAL “The same images that are made into photographs are also reproduced onto silk scarfs of the exact same size. The difference between the two objects lies within their haptic reality, their ideal value in terms of fashion versus art, merchandise versus edition, handcrafted […]

Surface Poetry

Surface Poetry at Boetzelaer|Nispen. “Today, the digital screen has become the predominant surface for engaging with visual content. The texture of the digital screen, characterized by its flat surface, artificial smoothness, juxtaposition of different windows, and chromatic backlit glow, constitutes the aesthetic framework in which we perceive and act upon a large part of the […]

Jamian Juliano-Villani

Jamian Juliano-Villani Work from “Gamblers Choice” at Retrospective, Hudson. “Juliano-Villani’s recent work renders hyperaware chaotic scenes in a bright, rich palette. Informed by a wide range of sources from ancient Eastern art to 1980s American cartoons, Juliano-Villani resists the notion that all paintings have to be about the history of the medium.  While she may […]

Mateo Tannatt

Mato Tannatt Work from his oeuvre. “Tannatt tends to circle complex political or sociological themes and then deliver works that are open and unstable, never unlocking the problems at their centre. For ‘Rendezvous Vous’, Tannatt reprinted the building’s notice of abandonment but, erasing the central chunk of its text, drew keyholes over it. He also […]

Sven Lukin

  Sven Lukin Work from his oeuvre. “Lukin’s steady move into actual space culminated at the end of the 1960s in what is probably his best known work—an undulating 120-foot long wall relief in green, pink, and orange, permanently installed at the Empire State Plaza in Albany, New York. The next 30 years of Lukin’s […]
