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 […]

Liubov’ Popova

Liubov’ Popova “In 1912 and 1913 Lyubov Popova studied in Paris. So she was very familiar with the developments of Cubism. She also made trips to Italy where she saw Futurist work firsthand. But unlike either Cubism or Futurism she really takes a jump and severs this connection with the visual world to try to […]

Milton Avery

Milton Avery From top to bottom: Interlude (1960), Black Sea (1959), White Sea (1947), Offshore Island (1958) “Milton Avery’s landscapes, still lifes, and figure compositions derive their expressive power from their abstracted, flat shapes and luminous yet subtle color. His subjects seem unremarkable, but the manner in which he treats them is exceptional, for through his strong, simple designs, his intimate scenes […]
