  4. Previewing Art Cologne

    By Hendrik Hansson, @hendrikHansson

    On a gloomy, overcast Wednesday afternoon in Cologne, the European art set descended upon the city for this year’s annual Art Cologne fair. As the focus of the German art scene shifts increasingly to Berlin and the European art scene has already shifted to Basel, the devolution of influence has moved decidedly away from the Rhineland. Nevertheless, a quick glance of the list of exhibitors reveals that the art powerhouses David Zwirner, Thaddaeus Ropac, and Hauser & Wirth are not yet ready to concede their presence.

  5. Aaron Curry: From Texas Kid to International 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.

  8. 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.

    Whilst the abstract expressionists weren’t getting serious attention and solo shows until well into their 40’s, hot contemporary artists are being thrust into the spotlight at increasingly younger ages. The pursuit of the next art star has reached a stage where talented young artists are being cherry-picked directly out of art school.

    One such artist is Lucien Smith. Born in Los Angeles in 1989, his talent was recognized by Jeanne Greenberg-Rohatyn, co-owner of Salon 94 Gallery. She bought a painting at Smith’s thesis show whilst he was still an undergraduate at the Cooper Union art school. The relationship turned out to be fruitful for both parties, the artist found a patron before graduating, and the dealer found a potentially lucrative talent.

  11. Browsing Art Dubai

    “The thing about Art Dubai is that you see stuff that you wouldn’t see anywhere else,” said a regular visitor, and he’s right. While many art fairs offer experiences so similar that they all seem to blend into one, Art Dubai has developed a strong identity: it’s anchored in the UAE and the region at large and embraces the international. No small feat.

    The great and the good of the art world came in droves to the VIP opening. Collectors such as London’s Fatima and Eskander Maleki, Libyan princess Alia Al Senussi, and Saudi Abdullah Al-Turki were all spotted strolling the aisles.
