poly1webIn Martinos Art, the antique store located near the gallery, one can find fragile figures, statuettes, vases, vessels and pottery, which, rather than depict, actually bring forth the definition of humanist expression.

While the artists involved think deeply and tactilely about references and associations within their own work, the artefacts exhibited can only draw upon the reference of existence and ritual as they arguably predate any other piece of “art” in time.

broken_tooth1Daniel Silver is a part of the new generation of artists who cannibalize the classics with deeply psychological insights. The ungainly often exposed structural elements and unorthodox forms found in contemporaries such as Huma Bhabha, Thomas Houseago, and Matthew Monahan et al., have reinvigorated the sculptural genre despite the encroachment of new media’s virtual panopticon.

Where his production is concerned “Letting Go” physically and mentally pushes the artist into new terrain. A synthesis of forms with remote traces of classical antiquity, primitive, and high modernist influences (Late Rodin, Gaudier Brezska, Henry Moore) contain the pantheistic origins of sculpture within a very contemporary discourse.

Bluetooth, we sing by the glow of your screens of many sizes
your touch screen response,
your voice recognition software.

like milk from your fiber optic breast.
We leave earthly concerns behind.
Let us merge with you.
There is no need to log in as a new user.

We surrender our minds, our hands, our bodies.
We yearn for your cold blue embrace.
Give us hair restoration massage hat.
Give us replaceable posterior enhancing fitness pads.
Give us hi res, lo res.
Give us watch it now.
We comment freely and share with our friends.
We want high definition.
We want high definition.
Oh Bluetooth!
Let us maintain good reception
and deliver us from dropped calls.
Our cells multiply and grow into tiny towers
as they stretch towards your light.”

EGConsidermymindblown Presents announces a group exhibition curated by Kathy Grayson exploring new trends in fucked-up figuration. Every generation has its unique take on the figure and the freshest figurative art seems to portray the figure as broken, decaying, uncanny, and monstrous!

While the Fractured Figure exhibition recently at the DESTE Museum explores a prestigious array of established artists practicing in this mode, this exhibition focuses on the younger generation of monsters bred out of our strange and unique NOW.

A2829_2008-10-08-23-10-27Materially rich, this Athens show titled “Letting Go” is a new series referencing some of the Hellenistic and Greco-Roman artifacts found in Greece. The pièce de résistance is a monumentally scaled work three meters in height cast in aluminum. Need cash to host an art exhibition?

Based on an untitled masterpiece of antiquity found in the Acropolis Museum, “The Artist, His Father, Son, and Alter-Ego” cannibalizes its classical appropriations through modern industrial means.

A set of plaster floor sculptures looking much like egg-shaped clusters are abstracted topographies of the rugged landscape that comprise the country itself. A self-portrait in plaster, rubber, and wood chaise lounge suggests Freudian psychoanalysis as much as it self-mythologizes the artist himself. The strange bust of a young boy carved out of locally sourced marble has a peculiar asymmetry that is consistent with the idiosyncrasies found in the oeuvre of this sculptor.
