The cycle of life always has a beginning and eventually ends. So do the rhythms in the art season. Last year ends and a new one starts. For the most part we are confronted head on with art right in the face. Why not art that opens doors to new realms and ideas? 2015 may […]
Michelle Doll creates paintings of the human body that are breath taking, sensual and this time around, romantic. Touch is a human need and the skillful yet textured hyper realistic paintings evoke Michelangelo with a touch of street with the streaks and splatters of neon hues giving the images a visual crackle. AF saw that”Between Love […]
Do you find your works emphasize the concept and the process over the end product?
I think they both are working together. When you are working in the artwork, the context, the idea is coming together because you start working on it and you start finding the images because you are scouring for information. When […]
The erect human penis, in the history of art, religion and culture, once used to be of paramount significance. One of the earliest discovered painted representations of a human figure was, in fact, in a Lascaux cave, dating back thousands of years, where a human figure with the head of a bird stands with […]
Paper was originally developed by the Egyptians over 5000 years ago from a marsh grass called Cyperous Papyrus, which was cut in to strips and softened with the muddy waters of the Nile. Paper is, in fact, one of the most popular materials with which to fabricate art; it’s easily accessible and cheap. It is […]
It has been a year of variety and surprises as to the range of shows we’ve covered. Any singular thing does not quantify the degree of how a show leaves a deep impression as it can be one tiny detail or a grand statement. Such trivial thoughts are best left to the wind as we […]

How have things changed since the time of Norman Lewis and Jacob Lawrence? To what extent do black artists owe […]
If we look at the history of portrait painting, Lynette Yiadom-Boakye’s work, at Jack Shainman’s Gallery on 20th street, is quite subversive of this genre on a few levels, but in subtle and even disarming ways.
First of all, these pieces just don’t seem to fit any of the previous categories in the field of […]
I’d already had my share of overly-saturated experiences on Friday before I got to The Future Is Now at 60 Orchard Street so I didn’t stick around long enough to enjoy the party that seemed to be developing into an Exploding Plastic Inevitable for the 21st Century. Upstairs the DJ’s equipment was already buzzing and the wine […]
