A few weeks before he brought me to the Mother Cabrini Shrine and the Cloisters, Mick had his prostate removed. I was the first person to visit him […]

Volta10: Patrick Jacobs

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.

Flesh Collage: The Work of Chambliss Giobbi

Herod is dancing in Chambliss Giobbi’s Tanz für mich, Salome!, inspired by Richard Strauss’ very modern opera based on the Oscar Wilde play Salome.
