1. New York/Los Angeles

    "It’s a bit of a cliché, but there is a difference between ‘looking’ and ‘seeing’.” - John Tierney

    For its premiere gallery exhibition, New York’s Hamburg Kennedy Photographs is debuting a fantastic show of work by British artist John Tierney. 

    Modern in their palette and simplicity, Tierney’s paintings are also full of nostalgia for the virtues of the American past –a cinematic quality in the vein of Edward Hopper and Charles Burchfield.

    John Tierney “An Exhibition of New Paintings, New York/Los Angeles,” is on view at Hamburg Kennedy September 15th-October 30th. 

    Don’t miss the opening reception tonight, September 18, from 6pm.

  2. The art world may think New York is where it’s at, but this week’s events shine the spotlight on Chicago. The city known for deep dish pizza and home to the first art museum in the country to present the work of Pablo Picasso, has a lot going on this month.

  3. The Muse in Art

    The almost immortalized idea of the artistic muse is a subject that the young photographer Cyrus Mahboubian (British, 1986) explores with burning interest in his latest body of work, which is on view in the eponymous exhibition at De Re Gallery, starting today. His manner of exploration is inherently avant-garde. So far, Mahboubian has managed to steer clear of using digital photography. He prefers to use film and Polaroid cameras to capture pieces of the world. This fact alone make his work deeply poetic. To add to this poeticism is his fascination with the idea of the muse. For this series of work, Mahboubian chose British actress Kasia Briars as his muse and took her to different parts of the English landscape to capture her in various idyllic settings.In this way, the English landscape is a secondary muse. The combination of landscape and figuration makes these works highly lyrical and reminiscent of an ether world, reverting back to a world that his almost completely mythological and where muses are the only source of inspiration.

    We would be remiss not to mention these other great exhibitions opening today!
