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 […]

Facundo Argañaraz

Facundo Argañaraz Work from Tonight Tonight at Highlight Gallery. “’The Thousand and One Nights is not something which has died. It is a book so vast that it is not necessary to have read it, for it is a part of our memory — and also, now, a part of tonight.” – Jorge Luis Borges. […]

Zeitguised

Zeitguised Work from Badlands. “Exploring the Arizona desert landscapes, the photographer’s camera becomes the recorder of the original source, while the artist’s digital modeling tool interprets the phenomenology of the geological formations. The resulting world becomes a striking and uncanny walk-in bastardization between the rich reality of the landscape and the reduced analytic model thereof.” […]

Joel Dean

Joel Dean Work from The Mutant and the Melody at Jancar Jones. The show takes its structure from the dichotomy of an ancient form of cultural inheritance, the fable. It includes two pieces that remain in flux for the full duration of the exhibition. Like the driving forces in the narrative of a fable, the […]
