Young talent drawn to exhibition by Malay artist association

Sometimes it's good to be just plain, says Mr Muhammad Amirul Azman, a 23-year-old artist who tries to depict this feeling in his artwork, currently on display in Ion Orchard. The works of art are part of Kontemporari 2017, an exhibition curated by Angkatan Pelukis Aneka Daya (Apad), an association of Malay artists. "There is so much chaos in the world that sometimes when we try and achieve happiness, we get stuck somewhere in between, but that is okay," Mr Muhammad Amirul said, referring to his photograph of a pale pink building corner. "Everyone starts off plain and simple like this building," he said. Artists like him, who are not members of Apad, have never been featured in the group's exhibitions. Now, in its 47th year, the association has for the first time opened participation to all Malay artists, and not just its members. This has led to works by younger artists such as Miss Nuryn Qistina, 17, being featured. She focuses on body painting, using make-up, face paint an..

It's all about the light

By Tamra Testerman ‘The light, the atmosphere— it’s all there in the light.” Northern New Mexico leaves an indelible mark on artists who paint here, regardless of where they wandered afterward, according to 203 Fine Art owner Eric Andrews. His elegant, naturally lit gallery with polished floors and ivory-colored furniture from the era of the artists he represents is located at 1335 Gusdorf Road in Taos. The gallery is home to a handful of abstract painters, sculpture artists and works by the Taos Modernists, artists who arrived in the area after World War II. Even without a horizon line or the representational elements typical of Southwestern art, it’s easy to see how Taos has profoundly influenced these works. The intensity of the light and colors in the artwork, along with the artists’ manipulation of composition and form, make them at once recognizable as coming from here. Andrews said the current exhibition in his gallery presents a “mixture of rare find pieces that haven’t been se..

Art Review: 'Arts Connect at Catamount Arts: Third Annual Juried Exhibition'

click to enlarge "Revnisfjara Beach II" by Elizabeth Nelson With the third annual juried exhibition at Catamount Arts, juror John R. Stomberg had his work cut out for him. The St. Johnsbury arts center opened its exhibition call to any artist in the U.S., in any medium. Most of the 600 artists who responded live and work in New England, but the bar was raised with the high number of entries and juried works selected. Stomberg is director of the Hood Museum of Art at Dartmouth College and a distinguished curator and writer. Before joining Dartmouth, he was director of the Mount Holyoke College Art Museum, and held leadership positions at the Williams College Museum of Art and the Boston University Art Galleries. For this exhibition, he chose 77 works in sculpture, painting, drawing, collage, woodcut, fiber arts, digital prints and mixed media. click to enlarge "The Artist (With Dracula)" by Leslie Sills Catamount's gallery director, Katherine French, also an acclaimed New Englan..

Actress CCH Pounder's new art exhibit at Xavier explores black female beauty and power

Actress CCH Pounder stood half-hidden in a doorway at the Xavier University Art Gallery and watched as a student, backpack over one shoulder, hurried through the spacious hall, then abruptly stopped and turned on his heel, as if dragged by gravitational force. Shifting his body 90 degrees, the student tilted his head and studied a large painting on the wall. "The Birth of Oshun" by Harmonia Rosales. The painting is striking for many reasons. The scene is familiar, a play on Botticelli's "The Birth of Venus," but Oshun is a black woman, beautiful with cropped hair, rising from a seashell, flanked by other African figures portraying deities and surrounded by tropical foliage in earthy colors. "She stops everyone," said Pounder, as the student stared at Rosales' tour de force. "I love watching people walk through here and see what catches them." "The Birth of Oshun" is among 42 paintings in "Queen: An Exhibition," which features works from Pounder's private collection now ..

Photo © Museum Associates/LACMA/Fomento Cultural Banamex, A.C., by Joaquín Cortés and Rosa FernándezAround 50 years ago in New York, I saw the most beautiful and the most literally racist exhibition I had ever seen. It was 18th Century casta art, from what was then called New Spain. Family pictures, along with carefully illustrated charts, tried to show more than forty different racial categories in Mexico in their social priority, from the white Espanoles on top to the Negros on the bottom and all the mixes between. The skill of the work was so s..
