Artist Crush: Cornelia O’Donovan

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

Today I’m featuring some recent work by well-known London artist and print maker Cornelia O’Donovan. I really love the first and last paintings in this grouping; they are very reminiscent of primitive 19th century folk art.

Artist Crush: Florian Meisenberg

Friday, January 18, 2013

Florian Meisenberg’s playful – bordering on the absurd – paintings have immediate appeal and more. As graphic works they read beautifully, and they are brimming with unabashed cheekiness. Despite the cheap tricks Meisenberg’s work has the unusual combination of both spontaneity and polish and demands to be taken seriously.

Not Under My Roof

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

Not Under My Roof is a site-specific installation by Claire Healy and Sean Condiero constructed from the flooring of an old farmhouse. It’s a totally disorienting piece of art, literally a slice of a free-standing building brought into another building and attached to the wall. It subverts our sense of place and scale and makes a strong statement about the home as a place of memories vs. a physical dwelling.

It immediately called to mind the crisp, deconstructed interior spaces by Mary Laube.

Artist Crush: Alan Shipway

Sunday, January 13, 2013

It’s hard not to be captivated by the optimism and creative expression in the work of Edinburgh artist Alan Shipway.

“To me the whole point, the beginning and end of painting, is that in itself it can be a kind of sanctuary – that it can radiate untroubledness, and point to something beyond the realities or mundane aspects of everyday life…” – Alan Shipway

“I think my ideal in painting is for it to radiate feelings of clarity… To me there is a value in clarity as such – there is a value in the capacity of paintings to radiate untroubledness and gravity of significance – an ideal that paintings should in a way dignify the space they inhabit.” – Alan Shipway

Of Interest: Natasza Niedziolka at Horton Gallery

Wednesday, January 9, 2013

Natasza Niediolka’s show at Horton Gallery opens today and the work, done mostly in thread on fabric, appears very compelling. This is the only photo I could find that shows Natasza’s new work.
