      Wednesday, 4 January 2012 17:52

        It has been almost one year that we started an art project with the artist Arnulf Rainer (b. 1929, Austria). Since the 1950s, Rainer’s work has been characterized by over-painting: he uses existing images (paintings, photos, or drawings of his own art or that of others) to work over, in order to make them […]

    • Ineffable, Complex, Love at Galerie de Roussan

      Monday, 2 January 2012 17:02

      The exhibition planned for next year has the density of a storm-filled sky: invasive, over-the-top and massive, François Mazabraud’s wooden sculpture takes up almost the whole of the ground floor. Its weight is so great that seems only to hold together thanks to a delicate balance. Close by, the anxious figures in the large painting […]

      Rennie Collection’s latest endeavor features video, sculptures and a wealth of paintings and drawings by Canadian artist Damian Moppett, as well as a large-scale special commission.

By fervently collecting Moppett’s work […]

    • Dead, Fictive, Live: Iris Shieferstein

      Thursday, 29 December 2011 17:02

      Paola Fiorido: Why are you working with dead material? Iris Shieferstein: Because it was lying on the street. Nobody is interested in dead animals that nobody eats. I picked it up like Duchamp.

      Tuesday, 27 December 2011 16:30

      Images of Helen Frankenthaler and Clement Greenberg hanging out at the Cedar Bar or upstate visiting David Smith are burned into our cultural memory.  It was at the turn of the beat generation where artists, poets and writers co-mingled in what would be the the tail end of a thriving American bohemia.  These icons of […]
