Interviews

 
 

Across time and space

Reviews

Centripetal Force

Jennifer Packer shows a remarkable ability in understanding the relationship between her subjects’ forms and the edges of their frames, giving them a centeredness that asserts itself on the canvas, giving power to people who have been left out of the canon.

Milk and Bones

less than half is “Face to Face” with Allison Hill-Edgar, who knows bodies inside and out––she trained to be a doctor, after all. We’ll cover everything from her winding path towards becoming a painter to her unusual approach to painting her subjects submerged in milk.

Of staples and stitches

less than half is “Face to Face” with Elana Herzog who uses her work to tell the complex story of the history of the world through textiles, which have embedded within them more information than you might think.

 

The art world’s a stage

Leonor Fini’s first U.S. retrospective is being staged at an unexpected venue: the Museum of Sex. This is no coincidence, as sometimes it is an outsider’s voice that makes us pay attention to what matters most.

Maiden, Mother, Crone

Hilma af Klint channeled her artistic impulse from a higher realm. Contemporary critics seem to look down on her spiritualism. less than half thinks this is a mistake.
