  7. Painter Eduardo Dalbono’s (1841-1915) picturesque image of a beautiful and tranquil afternoon in the heart of Italy is the centerpiece of tomorrow’s sale at Norwegian auction house Christiania auktionsforretning AS. Dalbono’s artistic practice was based around the study of nature. An acclaimed artist during his lifetime, he was represented by Goupil & Cie in France, one of the leading art dealers internationally at that time.

  9. Aaron Curry: From Texas Kid to International Art Star

    Aaron Curry is one of those exceptional artists who has stayed true to his own unique style while taking his career and work to the next level. So, how did the soft-spoken Texas kid grow up to become an internationally acclaimed art star?

    Mid career artists are often confronted with the creative challenge of maintaining their own unique style while exploring new ideas and concepts to take their career to the next level. At 41, Aaron Curry is an artist who finds himself in the middle of this period. Contrary to some of his contemporaries, he’s defying expectations by continually building on his early success - by showing impressive consistency and exploring new materials and mediums within his distinctive style rather than trying to reinvent himself and his art. Curry’s outdoor exhibition in New York’s Lincoln Center plaza late last year gave the artist well-deserved public exposure that could potentially be viewed as a breakthrough moment. The 14 piece show featured Curry’s trademark brightly colored abstract figurative sculptures.

  14. Exhibition: Kevin Appel

    Using photographs as a ground on which to build paintings, LA-based artist Kevin Appel applies layers of paint to the mechanically printed image on each canvas. The abstract application of paint on the surface and a photographic representation of another time and place masked in the background creates layers, each obliterating the last. The act of looking through one element to another, or the blocking of one impenetrable layer by another, has become a hallmark of his paintings. 

    This Spring, New York institution Ameringer | McEnery | Yohe is showing the work of Kevin Appel in a beautiful exhibition on view through April 19. The space has earned a reputation for showing some of the best artists from around the world - don’t miss this exhibition.

  15. "One might not think of light as a matter of fact, but I do. And it is, as I said, as plain and open and direct an art as you will ever find."  

    A pioneer of Minimalism, best known for his illuminated installations of commercial light fixtures, Dan Flavin was born on this day in 1933 in New York City. Though not his stated intention, Flavin laid the grounds for Minimalism with his concern for simple forms, use of industrial materials, and symbolic meaning, along with artists such as Donald Judd and Sol LeWitt.

  16. Pop Art, Politics and Peter Saul

    By Hendrick Hansson, @hendrikhansson

    Within art, a lot of media attention is reserved for the newest, latest or most expensive artists. Meteoric rises and record prices are routinely praised and sensationalized, whereas consistency and longevity is seldom given the coverage it deserves. True aficionados know that artists that find a way to reinvent themselves in order to stay relevant over a long period of time are far more worthy of praise than those who spend a few years at the top. When talking about artists who embody such consistency it’s difficult not to mention Peter Saul.

    image

    At 80 years of age, Saul looks back on a career spanning over 50 years. He was a pioneer of the pop art movement in the 1960’s and was one of the first artists to adopt cartoon imagery in his paintings, a style that he has stuck with, stoically. Saul’s grotesque, mocking, politically charged imagery divided opinion in a way that few artists have. What sets Saul apart is that the controversy he (often deliberately) courted was not a cry for attention, but a commentary on social and political issues. For Saul, no subject matter is taboo or off-limits; throughout his career, he has frequently been sidelined and isolated by the art establishment who deemed him to be too politically incorrect and controversial.
