      Tuesday, 17 June 2014 10:00

      Patrick Jacobs intentionally blurs boundaries between the traditional artistic media of painting, sculpture, and photography in his works. At the same time, they present the viewer with a spatial and perceptual conundrum; we are drawn into a space at once determinate and infinite, natural and contrived, prosaic and otherworldly. VOLTA10 June 16–21, 2014 Viaduktstrasse 10 […]

      Monday, 16 June 2014 10:00

      Anthony Goicolea continues to push his fantastic photographic tableaux, maneuvering from the wildly complex multiple self-portraits that he perfected in the previous decade to conceptual territories of displacement and alienation in unpopulated hybrid landscapes.

      Volta10 Preview: Kadar Brock

      Friday, 13 June 2014 12:00

      Brooklyn-based abstraction alchemist Kadar Brock approaches his paintings as objects themselves, sanding and abrading them and extracting colorful remnants from old canvases as surface materials and activated media toward new works. His process of creation, deletion, recycling, and renewal achieves results that blur the line between painting and sculpture, waste and reward. VOLTA10 June 16–21, […]

      Body Double: Brice Dellsperger at Team Gallery

      Thursday, 12 June 2014 21:29

      The camera zooms in on small notepad and a pen poised motionless over the page, while the sounds of a pen scratching paper play over the film’s audio. This disconnect between image and reality is a frequent occurrence in the works of Brice Dellsperger’s evocative series, “Body Double: Vous N’en Croirez Pas Vos Yeux,” currently […]

      Art In Search of Universal Dialogue with Jackie Sleper

      Thursday, 12 June 2014 09:00

      “Jackie Sleper does not match the traditional profile of a Dutch artist. Unlike her historical counterparts, with their austere Calvinist roots and dour palette, Sleper’s work celebrates life with bursts of color and a quixotic co-mingling of sculptural embellishments. She draws inspiration from her world travels, and the wide-ranging cultures she seeks to embrace while […]
