      Monday, 14 May 2012 16:19

      Shezad Dawood (b.1974, London) works in a variety of media. Recalling influences as diverse as cosmology, science fiction and Sufism, his works create multi-layered narratives that undermine conventional ways of seeing, re-imagining moments from multiple sites and histories. For his exhibition “Piercing Brightness” at Modern Art Oxford, Dawood presents new film, painting and light sculpture. […]

      Friday, 11 May 2012 16:13

      Juan Carlos Castro’s new show just opened at 443 Pas Gallery.  The show compromises an array of approaches to image making all with a tendency towards pattern, spirituality and identity issues. Matt Sebra from GQ.com notes that “The artist’s works are an exposition on the idea of identity and look at removing the visual anchors […]

    • Lothar Hemple: The Story of Old New Girls

      Thursday, 10 May 2012 15:37

      For his fourth solo exhibition at Art: Concept, Lothar Hempel presents a brand new series of paintings that mix oil, crayon, collage, acrylic, print, stains, drips, scratches, sheddings, smears and splatters. These intriguing paintings are filled with unintentional signs that result from the multiplicity of the layers applied by the artist, who wants to take […]

    • Push Me! Interfacing With Strangers

      Wednesday, 9 May 2012 15:36

      Nowadays people are linked through several devices like telephones and computers. And as a result, we are confined emotionally and psychologically by these current technologies. Physically bounded spaces and real objects have become less significant as data is able to flow through buildings, cities and greater distances easily. It is no wonder that this has […]

    • Belief In The Book: Daniel Rapley’s Sic

      Monday, 7 May 2012 17:26

      Daniel Rapley has spent the last 18 months writing up the entire King James Bible, by hand, on standard feint ruled notepaper with a ballpoint pen. Or so, at least, we are told. When we enter the white cube space of PayneShurvell, London, what we see is a sturdy sheaf of feint ruled notepaper, each […]

    • Everything And All: Slawomir Marzec at Varsovian Gallery

      Monday, 30 April 2012 20:39

      The exhibition is a special treaty on painting and visibility. Marzec takes here (as he does in his theoretical publications) the discussion of the current concept of the picture. His critical references to the idea of parergom (Kant, Derrida), screen (Lacan), repetition (Deleuze), palimpsest (Lyotard), cut/tear (Didi – Huberman) and too others are clearly visible […]

    • Peasants In The City: Rebecca Morgan at Asya Geisberg

      Monday, 30 April 2012 19:14

      On a Thursday evening, in inebriated Chelsea, I robotically entered the Asya Geisberg Gallery and realized that I had stepped into an 18th century fairytale, somewhere in the midst of European woods. Portraits of beautiful, naked women sitting next to grotesque caricatures of modernized peasants. I may have cringed at a few three-dimensional boils that […]

    • The Body In Question

      Monday, 30 April 2012 19:06

      Unless his estate is keeping them hidden, there isn’t a single nude in Martin Chambi’s work. That in itself is remarkable: photography has been synonymous with disrobing and the strip tease since its inception. Was it reluctance on Chambi’s part, local mores, or restrictions of colonial society? It hardly matters. If Maxim Gorky had been […]
