Spotlight on M+B's portraits by Nathaniel Mary Quinn

Posted By AIPAD, Friday, June 10, 2016

By turns monstrous and whimsical, Nathaniel Mary Quinn’s portraits at M+B are fractured, richly inventive images of former residents of the Chicago housing project where he grew up. They are somewhat reminiscent of the work of Wangechi Mutu, although rather than using found imagery directly, Quinn draws or paints from various sources — photographs, comics, history painting, fabric patterns and more — putting them all together in distorted collisions resembling faces.

Sightlines at Etherton Gallery

Posted By AIPAD, Thursday, March 17, 2016

Landscape photography can take many forms.

And Etherton Gallery’s latest show, “Sightlines,” impressively displays a few of them.

The show features the work of Jody Forster, whose images of the Southwest capture its vastness and beauty; Dick Arentz, an authority on platinum printing who is now experimenting with digital photography and discovering he can get the same sharpness and tones (his photos of Scotland in the show bear him out); and Daniel Leivick, who uses Google maps to create his images. What he does is combine or superimpose images from Google maps.

Rosalind Fox Solomon at Bruce Silverstein Gallery

Posted By AIPAD, Tuesday, February 23, 2016

Got to Go, the latest solo exhibition from prolific photographer Rosalind Fox Solomon, combines still images, audio, and a three-channel projection for an immersive trip through the artist’s fascinating career. The exhibition opens at Bruce Silverstein Gallery February 25 (with a book signing from 6-8PM) through April 16.

Got to Go evokes childhood memories, parents’ frantic voices, and the early imposition of deranged social codes and expectations,” the gallery writes. “Fox Solomon’s environmental installation is jarring, and psychologically freighted. The artist’s narrative overlay contextualizes her bewildering and audacious photographs.”

Richard Tuschman at Klompching Gallery

Posted By AIPAD, Thursday, February 18, 2016

Klompching Gallery is delighted to present the debut of Once Upon a Time in Kazimierz, a new series of photographs by Richard Tuschman. This will form the artist's first solo exhibition at Klompching Gallery, and will be launched with an Opening Reception on Thursday, March 3rd, 6:00 - 9:00 pm, with the artist in attendance. 

 

Once Upon a Time in Kazimierz is a visual novella, which portrays a fictional Jewish family in 1930s Poland. Set in the once vibrant neighborhood of Kazimierz in Krakow, the location is a metaphor for loss and decay. In 1935, the Jewish historian Meir Balaban, described the neighborhood's declining Jewish population as being "only the poor and the ultra-conservative." Indeed, the darkness evident in the photographs, is underpinned by an awareness that the fates of the characters, are likely doomed by history, with the impending holocaust. While death, the fraying of family bonds, and feelings of grief haunt many of the photographs, this gloom is punctuated by moments of love, longing and tenderness.
