Raw Material and Manufacture: Its Implications on Art. Essay by Adán Vallecillo

Monday, March 29th, 2010

A title like this one has to be placed in context, otherwise we run the risk of dispersion or formalistic reductionism that we are so accustomed to. For this reason, the concepts of raw materials and manufacture will have to be questioned in sociological terms in order to better understand some of the differences between the art produced in the First World and in Central and Latin America.[...]

Jochen Lempert at Projecte SD

Friday, March 26th, 2010

Jochen Lempert’s work is a combination of art, scientific research, documentation and conceptualism. He photographs the natural world and its inhabitants. He searches for the animal world in places where its occurrence is not so well evidenced, recording life in a broad diversity of environments, from natural history museums to street life, from remote places to banal objects and situations.[...]

Steve Schepens

Friday, March 26th, 2010

Steve Schepens’ current exhibition at Galerie Van de Weghe in Antwerp is perhaps all too horrifying, but in a good way. It’s not meant to create the type of horror or disgust we find in genre films, but more the kind related to the impalpable; the object and its relationship to space, and the ways we perceive it.

Jason Mena: Blind Fields

Wednesday, March 24th, 2010

What happens if we look directly at the sun? The reflections of our bright star allow us to see things, colors and forms. The illumination produced on the objects makes them visible to our eyes and allows us to establish a multiplicity of relations with them. It seems paradoxical to think that the excess of illumination, emitted by the sun, bewilders our sight creating blind fields in our perception. Light is, at the same time, a source of clarity and the reason for concealment of a vision field.[...]

Davide Balula at Galerie Frank Elbaz

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010

Davide Balula’s Compass In the Eye seems to evoke both a pupil’s mischief gone wrong as well as the artist’s ability to work without the measuring tool.[...]

Bobby Cruz and Carlos Rubio at Galería Yemayá

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

Artistic expression achieves its greatest freedom in the studio, a space devoid of curatorial parameters, where the artist dispenses with formal and rigid canons to play and experiment with different materials. In the exhibition Por la libre at Galería Yemayá, this artistic experimentation rooted in the studio is taken to the gallery for artists Bobby Cruz and Carlos Rubio, providing an unrestrained space for creativity and personal expression.[...]

Anthony Lister

Friday, March 19th, 2010

Anthony Lister‘s work suggest influences from street art, expressionism and pop art exposing its less glamorous aspects. Born and raised in Australia, his work is influenced by American TV and mainstream media, creating works that, according to the artist, reflect “misguided role models and misguided youth”.[...]
