PETER RIVE

I am still not convinced the medium of painting has been exhausted. My most recent artwork of the last two years has still held the notion of the brushstroke or the artists mark as its central theme – an exploration of painting and its process in a contemporary context. The majority of the work begin as a minature oil painting, in a heavily applied form.... MORE ON APNYC

 
ORDI CALDER
The Photographic Poetic developed by Ordi Calder, the “underlies” receives influences of modern art, especially Surrealism and have inspiration in Psychedelic Culture, in Metaphysics and especially in “Unchanging Values of the Cosmos” as Geometry, Colors, Musical Notes and Electricity, for example. Truths that underlie these perceptions, the realities, but are intrinsic to all structure ... MORE ON APNYC
SANNA MARIA PAANANEN
Sanna Maria Paananen’s paintings are modern day allegorical figures, usually dealing with issues like being an artist, the economy, being female and how to view femininity.   Her paintings are in a bluish-tinted grayscale and the figures never fully engage the viewer, but always look away, at least slightly, to represent the painter’s timid personality.  Paananen’s paintings are mainly done in oils, but mixed with other types of paint and collage materials...  MORE ON APNYC

EDITORIAL PLATFORM: FEATURE ARTICLES | INTERVIEWS & ESSAYS 
ART IN RETROSPECT
The historic results at New York’s auctions last month set the tone: Confidence is high and the global elite is in a buying mood. This bullish atmosphere has continued at Art Basel’s 2014 edition. Millions changed hands in the fair’s preview days. Unsurprisingly, it’s the brand names and safe investment pieces that attracted the top buyers. Secondary market gallery Skarstedt scored the biggest sale reported at time of writing, with a monumental Andy Warhol self-portrait from the iconic Fright Wig series, priced in the region of $35 million... MORE ON APNYC

 
THE ART OF CRITIQUE
“Long reduced to a footnote of 20th century art history, DeFeo  previously remembered largely for The Rose (1958–66), her monumental, massively thick relief painting, came roaring back into the public consciousness with her impressive 2012–13 retrospective at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. Her current show at Mitchell-Innes & Nash continues the trend with a selection of DeFeo’s 1970s experiments in photography, an assortment of drawings and collages, and her late-in-life return to oil painting... MORE ON APNYC
I WAS BORN TO DO GREAT THINGS

Mickalene Thomas’ I was born to do great things, currently on view at Kavi Gupta is her first solo show with the gallery. While the work in the exhibition was clearly conceptualized by the artist, it would seem unfair to call it a “solo,” as Thomas did not create this exhibition alone.    Thomas has used her late mother, Sandra Bush, as her muse for the past 14 years. The current exhibition, produced in the space of the gallery, is an environment that embodies the woman that has shaped both the artist’s life and practice... MORE ON APNYC
