• The Indignation Project

      Diffused Fingerprints was made specifically for a solo exhibition held this past summer at the National Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall in Taipei, Taiwan. In fact, this “spatial” piece was tailored according to the space of the exhibition hall. The rectangular-shaped room is nearly 33 meters in length, 12 meters in breadth, and 3 meters in […]

    • Blinding Glitz

      Tuesday, 23 November 2010 15:08

      Rhydal, seen here in detail, speaks to Glamour Trance. 21st-century Americans court oblivion in shopping, fundamentalism, hegemony, pedigree, capitalism, sugar, and fashion. The list is long. Calling to mind the protagonists of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novels or Rita Hayworth in the film Gilda, the sculpture’s hypnotic sizzle is intoxicating. Glamour Trance freezes time and stunts […]

    • Reading Between the Lines

      Monday, 22 November 2010 15:03

      For her fourth solo exhibition at the Third Line and starting off the fall season, Golnaz Fathi presents a selection of light boxes and new works on paper. Fathi began working on light boxes in 2007 in an aim to take on a distinctive yet different approach to her works predominantly on canvas. This show […]

    • Portraits of Anonymity

      Friday, 19 November 2010 15:02

      Sophie Hill: I find the idea of “portraits” through something material interesting. What inspired you to create the Symbolic Portraiture series? Jason Bryant: Well, as long as I have been drawing and painting, I have always been fascinated with capturing nuances and expressiveness of the human face, so naturally one of my biggest influences has […]

    • On the Road

      Thursday, 18 November 2010 15:24

      These images were printed in a self-published zine entitled Anywhere But Here. For most of its publicity, this is the description: “This zine and the photographs therein are the product of the necessary leave of absence I took from Brooklyn, NY during the summer of 2008. Sometimes you just gotta get away.” This statement is […]

    • A Penetrating Investigation

      Wednesday, 17 November 2010 15:47

      We wanted to showcase works of art created by young, eager artists looking to expand, analyze, and question the ideas of public/private. Using the dual existence of Ampersand, a live/work space, as a jumping-off point, we were interested in work that explored the conflicts, tensions, unions, and coexistence between public/private, in all its forms. Unsettled […]

    • Figuratively Speaking

      Tuesday, 16 November 2010 15:33

      The exhibition Marked features six young artists, Chino Amobi, Alison Blickle, Brendan Lott, Jenny Morgan, Reuben Negron, and Robin Williams, all taking hold of the figure as they represent and reflect their strong, fertile, and multilayered independent narratives. The artists in this show use various methods, from mark-making to layering materials and concepts, to forcing […]

    • A Twisted Tango

      Monday, 15 November 2010 15:22

      My recent work deals with themes such as sexual perversion, as well as occult and Thelemic imagery and symbolism. There are also a lot of underlying themes of isolation, sorrow, and mangled senses of self. I try to convey grief and introspective mourning in poignant and relatable ways. Most of my work is narrative in […]

    • Portraits of Candor

      Thursday, 11 November 2010 15:21

      Success came late to Alice Neel. In the first 40 years of her career she exhibited only sporadically and generally in little known group exhibitions, or in small galleries allied to left-wing causes. Although outgoing and gregarious, she lacked confidence in her realist art at a time when abstraction was ascendant. Isolated in Spanish Harlem […]

    • A Fluid Display for the Masses

      Wednesday, 10 November 2010 15:15

      At one point I asked myself, if the human body is 90-percent water, then what makes up the other ten percent? This question started me photographing people I knew in stages of submerging in and out of water. I’ve often used my friends as models in my experiments, so they are cautious when I make […]
