Essay on Nikolai Ishchuk’s Offset by Lucy Soutter

Read on photoworks Nikolai Ishchuk’s Offset series pulls apart the family album. Ishchuk has digitally reworked a set of found snapshots, separating the central figures from each other and leaving the middle of the frame oddly vacant. This gesture is a direct function of the Photoshop offset filter referenced in the title, a tool that automatically splits an image down the middle and reverses the pieces so that the centre moves to the edges and the edges meet in a…Read More

“Windows” Reviewed on Artforum.com

By Tina Rivers This show contributes to the heated debate over the relationship between contemporary art and digital technology by cleverly focusing on the idea of “windows.” In this context, windows is a double entendre, referring both to the long-standing metaphor for the picture plane in Western art and to the more recent use of overlapping frames to organize information on computer screens, challenging the window’s association with a single-point perspective. The artists in this show are fluent in both…Read More

A Rock Shop, Pet Snakes and Abstracts: Gallery Shows for Artists Nadja Frank, Don Voisene and Lorna Williams By Peter Plagens Printed in the Wall Street Journal, May 25, Page A20 “Backstories have taken over much of contemporary art.

Review of Amanda Valdez in Idiom, “A Sweet Tooth & Some Cavities” by Jeffrey Kirkwood

Link to read on Idiom. In a meditation on the ‘seductiveness’ of the big toe, Georges Bataille wrote in 1929 — “human life entails, in fact, the rage of seeing oneself as a back and forth movement from refuse to ideal, and from the ideal to refuse — a rage that is easily directed against an organ as base as the foot.” Against this caliginous member of Acéphal’s tendency to luxuriate in real abjection, Amanda Valdez’s finely executed assemblages discover the joyous excesses of…Read More

Review of Amanda Valdez in Dossier

Link to read on Dossier Journal Amanda Valdez: Taste of Us An abstract painter is situated strangely in relation to the history of her medium. On the one hand, very little in a given work bears a direct and obvious connection to common social life – a situation that has always made interpreting an abstract painting uncomfortable. By definition, it cannot picture its theme, and this makes it seem too distant from the languages in which we usually express our…Read More

The panels…Read More
