Art Must See: Event Horizon

Public art is a funny thing: it can be the safest and least interesting art on the planet, so low key and quiet that it is hardly ever noticed.  Public art can be misguided, thinking that it is achieving one things, while barely approaching the level that it strives to engage the viewer on.  And once in awhile, a public art installation comes along that transcends the idea of being art presented in public. It becomes art that uses the public space it inhabits as a unique and priceless canvas. Case in point, the recently inaugurated installation of Antony Gromley's "Event Horizon" in Lower Manhattan... - written by KiptonART Rising 2010 Winner Avery McCarthy

Interview with Artexpo Artist Josee Nadeau

Get to know Josee Nadeau, an artist who is currently showcasing work at this weekends International Artexpo in New York City.

Who is your biggest influence or inspiration right now?
My biggest inspiration at this time is my surroundings, and what captures my emotions.  Whether it is from where I go or the people I meet.  From a scent of a flower, texture from fabric or movement of the wind in the mane of a horse.  How the light bounces from the sky and how it is projected elsewhere. That it is from my paintings of the interior of a Cafe to the beauty of the outdoors. Atmosphere is the most important aspect including the essence of what it creates.

KiptonART ART TALK with Designer Kirsten Lombardi

Designer Kristen Lombari is the maker behind Manimal moccasins, jewelry and bags. Manimal goods are made by hand with a deep appreciation for the almost forgotten world of artisan crafts and craftsmanship.

Who are your favorite KiptonART artists? Why?

 I really love the work of Myriam Abdelaziz. I appreciate the opportunity photographers like this provide, allowing me to experience the vitality of far away lands through such exquisite documents.
I wish I had the pleasure of adorning my walls with the paintings of Lucy Kirkman and Mark Perry (a fellow Rhode Islander). The poetic scenes in Kirkman's paintings present a story I really feel I can involve myself in, and the smokey landscapes of Perry's work are so perfectly beautiful and succinct.

New York - Milavec Green Gallery is pleased to present Pop-Up Beginnings, a debut exhibition of paintings, photography and sculpture. Located in a newly-restored historical landmark building in Manhattan's Flatiron district, long-time occupied by Gordon Novelty Pop-Up Beginnings presents a multiplicity of perspectives from an exciting group of emerging and established artists. The eclectic visual dialogue characterizing the show stems in part from the varied geographic origins of the ten artists (including New York, London, Korea, Los Angeles and Russia), and can be seen in both their identification with their respective media and to broader art historical and social contexts.

Projects 92: Yin Xiuchen

The first U.S. installation of Yin Xiuchen's large-scale sculpture Collective Subconscious (2007) creates a refuge within the harried space of midtown and a place for conversation and contemplation. MoMA visitors are invited to climb inside the caterpiller-like construction, which is actually a minivan lengthened to 38 feet via a central tube and covered in a patchwork of secondhand garments. The work depicts Xiuchen's fascination with the rapid social and environmental changes in urban China, as communal discussions and shared property have been eclipsed by aspirations of individual material success.

Tools for Thought Raises Funds for Haiti

Last night we trekked uptown to Sotheby's for the Tools for Thought Benefit to help rebuild Haiti. We are pleasantly surprised to find that there does not seem to be any benefit exhaustion for this cause, because as we all know, they need all the help we can get. Tools for the Thought is just the first of several efforts to unite the art community to help provide aid and support those in need.

 Our group included Emma Snowdon-Jones, Anisha Lakhani and Naeem Delbridge. We entered the space and were struck by the dozens of pieces of artwork donated to the cause. We bid on a Jeff Koons piece that was off to  one corner but no matter how hard we tried, we couldn't stop others from seeing it and were soon out bid and out priced. Since all proceeds are going to charity we aren't bitter.

KiptonART ART TALK with Director of the Art Production Fund Casey Fremont

  

Who are your favorite KiptonART artists? Why?
 I am very moved by the work of photographer Kiritin Beyer. I think Beyer's photographs are beautifully composed. The images are quiet, sensitive, and extremely powerful. His portraits capture a very intimate moment with the subject and very effectively communicate this intimacy and the subtleties of the moment to the viewer.
Samantha Kelly Smith's paintings are absolutely beautiful and complex. She brings the canvases to life with intense drama. There is amazing depth to her abstract works.

KiptonART Featured Gallery: Michelle Rosenfeld Gallery

Name of Gallery: Michelle Rosenfeld Gallery
Location: 16 East 79th St., New York
Specialty: Modern and Contemporary Masters
Owner: Jason Rosenfeld


What is the history of the gallery?
My mother Michelle Rosenfeld started the gallery in  1970. Her initial interest resided in Pop Art, and was one of the first people to deal with Keith Herring. She had a real passion for the arts and it translated down to me. Ever since I can remember I have been involved with the gallery one way or another. I went to school for art history at the University of Maryland. If you grow up in and around a business you either take to it or go the extreme opposite. I enjoy the art world very much and am fortunate that my mother began this gallery.

End of Fall 2010 Fashion Shows: Closing of Rodarte at Cooper-Hewitt Museum

Things happen faster in teams. With most artists waiting at least a decade for a retrospective of iconic works, Laura and Kate Mulleavy waiting half that time. Founded in 2005, their innovative fashion designs have soared to immeasurable success. Zero formal training arguable makes them the most successful young designers of the contemporary market. Both attended Berkley, Laura focused on literature and Kate art history. An evolutionary process ensued. Storytelling bridged with artistic knowledge created Rodarte, labeled after their mother's maiden name. Their first meeting in New York was with Women's Wear Daily, three days later they were on the journal's cover accompanied by a phone call from Anna Wintour.

Marina Abramović, “The Artist is Present”

Right now Yugoslavian-born artist Marina Abramovic is seated, silent and motionless, at a wooden table in the Museum of Modern Art's second-floor atrium. She will remain in this position until May 31st for a total duration of 700 hours, marking her most ambitious endurance test to date. Unlike 2002's The House with the Ocean View, which required Abramovic's to live in Sean Kelly Gallery for 12 days without eating, drinking or sleeping. The Artist is Present allows her to leave every evening upon the museum's closing. But this trial of resolve is no less physically demanding than the Kelly performance, especially considering the artist's current age of 63. It is no less daring than Rhythm 0 (1974), when the artist invited her audience to use an assortment of 72 objects on her as she remained silent and passive for six hours, which resulted in her being stripped naked, cut with razor blades and threatened with a loaded gun held to her head.

Julie Combal: Her paintings express many feelings and demonstrate much emotion, which is very inspirational. She thinks outside of the box and expresses her feelings through earth tones and imagery that is more complex in her abstract pieces.
Ula Einstein: Absolutely beautiful forms that are innovative and delicate yet make a very strong statement. She keeps with the natural colors of the objects, while exploring the conditions of which she can create and develop. I admire that.
I adore the shapes and patterns created by Jill Broussard and Daniel Rosenbaum. Their pieces have much substance to them - some could be used as fashion prints.

KiptonART ART TALK with socialite and star of MTV's Blonde Charity Mafia, Katherine Kennedy


Who are your favorite KiptonART artists? Why?
Having always been compelled towards the beauty of mixed media, I was awe struck by the use of color in the works of Vivian Rosenthal. I fould such a depth in Ana Heaton's Red Abstract Number 3 that was second to none. I was quite taken by Jill Tauzin Broussard's remarkable work with oil on wood. Her work in 23 circles would find a home in my living room with such vibrant colors to warm its surroundings. Of all of the work witnessed, I must admit I fell in love with Alchemical Balance by Paul Seftel for his astounding use of transformative color on a textural piece of promise. Intrigued by both his method and talent, I look forward to reading about his continued success and owning a piece in the near future.

This large-scale installation occupies an entire room as an integral whole but also can be broken down shelf by shelf. The deliberate arrangement of objects relative to one another and the printing of the photographs in the subjects original size give the installation a three dimensionality while the below eye-level prespective imparts a surrealistic experience.

She connects with the people in her gallery, and so do I --even though I will never meet them. I am glad she has documented their lives and their culture.


Ronzo Ortega: What a wonderful mix of ancient and modern! He imbues his mythic scenes and people with a Byzantine ethos; his use of color and form convey power and depth of feeling. I wanted to see more.


Jade Doskow: I am moved by the powerful interplay of forms in her photos and strong sense of place that comes through. She discerns the drama inherent in structures that positively explode from the frame. And she pulls the viewer into the scenes, so that I feel that I am sharing her amazing vision.
