Conversation with the Artist Marta Soul at Kopeikin Gallery

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, August 8, 2012
Updated: Friday, January 3, 2014

Saturday, August 18
3:00 - 5:00

In conjunction with her new book project, Idilios, Spanish photographer Marta Soul will hold a casual conversation at Kopeikin Gallery. The book title is a lyrical word for "romances" in Spanish and is fitting for the imagery she makes. In a range of idyllic scenes Soul captures the intimate and romantic embrace between a man and woman. Locked by a kiss this moment signifies an immediate satisfaction, indulgence, connection. In every image we see the same woman with a different man. Hard to mistake for her red hair, the woman takes on personas to match her suitor and her situation: sporty in orang heels at a car dealership, elegant in pink at a sculpture museum, casual in a home under the arch of a garden gate. The pieces are as engaging and believable as amusing through the charade we know the female is playing on her suiters. Something resembling an advertising campaign begins to emerge along with an ephemeral quality. The moment of indulgence, the moment of the kiss is attached to pleasure and satisfaction that is fleeting. There is something for everyone, and this something, besides love, is a range of different values. The men and the scenes represent the variable, the redhead desire itself.

Review: tête-à-tête at Yancey Richardson Gallery

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, July 31, 2012
Updated: Friday, January 3, 2014

Curated by Mickalene Thomas

through August 24, 2012

[[3]]This group exhibition features the work African and African American photographers including Derrick Adams, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Jayson Keeling, Deana Lawson, Zanele Muholi, Clifford Owens, Mahlot Sansosa, Malick Sidibe, Xaviera Simmons, Mickalene Thomas, and Hank Willis Thomas. Curated by Mickalene Thomas, the exhibition grew from a discussion between Derrick Adams, Clifford Owens, and Xaviera Simmons earlier this year at MOMA. The "Conversation: Among friends" inspired Thomas to gather work that asks us to consider the conceptual idea of the black body and what that means in todayʼs society.

With an inclusive show like this it is to the curators credit that the work runs the gamut- sensual to firm, stark to expansive, humorous, frank, delicate, strong. Thomas took particular interest in the performative role of the gaze- for males it is in relation to the viewer, for females the self or through the gaze of another, often male, figure. Owens inverts the western male gaze creating a "black male on male gaze," and Owen's work is more subtle, quietly watching through shadow. Muholi depicts black lesbians living in South Africa- these are of particular weight and beauty, and become a celebration of the women's lives. Personal ties are drawn in the frames of Lawson. We see lines of relation and the cycle it perpetuates. Thomas's polaroids are a view into the artist's process. A tase of the final work these images give insight, but make us hungry for more.

Harrowing Tale: aipad Member Dealers Rescue Photographic Estate

Posted By Administration, Saturday, July 28, 2012

Related Exhibition:
A CLASSIC COLLECTION: From the Estate of Julian T. Baker Jr. (1939-2011)

Etherton Gallery
through Friday, Aug. 31

The story of the Julian T. Baker Collection is perhaps as interesting as the works which comprise it. A latecomer to collecting, Baker wasted no time. It was only in the last 10-15 years of his life that he became active. His interests were broad, but his curiosity seemed most inclined towards Post World War silverprints. The collection includes iconic work by the greats- Harry Callahan, Sally Mann, Ralph Gibson, Linda Connor, Aaron Siskind, and more; Chicago-based aesthetic, including Kenneth Josephson; and Japanese photographers including Hiroshi Sugimoto.

When Baker passed in February of 2011 the photographic collection amassed was to be sold and the proceeds to be given to his heirs. The Center for Creative Photography, Tuscon was also a benifactor. The task was set to Bakers top dealers- Terry Etherton and Gitterman, both aipad member galleries. After convincing the family of the print's value and saving them from overheating when the air conditioning was shut off, the two dealers rescued prints in haste from an approaching tornado.

"The hurricane was about to happen," Etherton says. With the SUV jam-packed with photographic treasures, they sped into the wind. The storage place was 10 miles away.

"It was a race against time," Etherton exclaims with a laugh. "Here were two crackers from New York and Tucson in a van loaded with millions of dollars of pictures." - Margaret Regan, Tucson Weekly

The risk was worth the effort- the mountains of prints works were saved and a lovely collection is now on display at Etherton Gallery.

Review: From Moscow with Love at PDMB Gallery

Posted By Administration, Thursday, July 26, 2012
Updated: Friday, January 3, 2014

Extended through September 1, 2012

Featuring work by seven contemporary Russian photographers

Ranging from formal elegance to political commentary the work of the seven photographers on display at PDNB is indeed a special selection. Burt Finger, Director of PDNB Gallery, was invited to join Russian Curators to participate in the first International Portfolio Review in Moscow. This show represents a selection made by Finger from the participants.

Among the exhibiting artists are Dmitri Belikov, Mikhall Dashevsky, Gregori Malofis, Ivan Mikhallov, Valery Samarin, Vitaly Smimov, and Eugene Zaluzhny. For some of the artists this is their first exposure in the United States.

Malofis's works seem to come from different series, but the thread of a single hand weaves like-toned frames together that overall evoke the sense of performance and spectacle. In Figurative Paining a ballerina and a bear stand for a portrait. A monkey makes more than one appearance- he lifts a barbell in God Makes the Back to the Burden and in Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery he slips a sheet of paper into what is reminiscent of a ballot box. The titles work to reinforce underlying metaphor while the images are generally soft, pretty, and playful. So too are the works by Samarin. The shadow is the main character in high-contrast frames of silverware. Smirnov's huts are formal and stark representations of tattered dwellings. There is a quiet stillness to the structures that starts to speak to the human condition.

Work by Dashevsky and Beliakov, continue to speak to condition with frames that touch on themes of fear and power. There is a tug between these two emotions that seems to belong to sides of the same coin. Dashevsky's street scenes from 1990's set the tone and Beliakov helps us to dig a bit deeper. In Beliakov's March 2006, Grozny, Chechnya a mother bathes her children in a bombed out structure and in April 15, 2002, Chechnya, Area of Severny soldiers tredge though muddied fields. These two frames alone move perfectly between polarizing sentiment. Zaluzhny's formal portraits of decorated veterans enhances the more dynamic field work of the two formerly artists mentioned.

There is something about the work of Mikhailov that steals the show. Mikahailov photographs playgrounds at night; each frame becomes a monument to the past. Slides, forts, and jungle gyms all take the shape of rockets. The peeling paint and rusting forms were all built durring the space race and endure. Again we have dual emotions that are linked- success and failure. Past glory seems to have left behind a strange frame that today looks to be more skin and bone than flesh. These works summ up the whole of emotion brought together by the other artist's included- there is a sense of life and play, a sense of spectacle and glory, a swelling of pride, and a gritty truth to layers of history. All these narratives converge in the lighted darkness of the playgrounds.
