1. Daily Art Fix:

    In this mysterious image by Rosemarie Trockel, a young woman’s back becomes a site of study. Trockel frames the composition so as to elicit our curiosity, while the woman’s backless red dress exposes her pale skin and is complemented by a twist of long hair. 

     
  2. SPOTLIGHT ON: JOE FIG

    Joe Fig’s work offers glimpses into the studios, private spaces, and processes of acclaimed artists—or so it initially seems. In fact, Fig stages his photographs by meticulously crafting miniature diorama of each studio, including small models of the artists themselves. Fig then shoots the photograph from a documentary perspective so as to capture the artist in action. As such, his work challenges assumptions regarding the truth of photography as well as the mythic status of artists in contemporary culture.

     
  3. DAILY ART FIX:

    Peter Schuyff’s characteristic style is exemplified in this humorous layered painting. Interested in the relationship between reality and fantasy, Schuyff appropriates a traditional portrait and overlays a playful, abstract form—appearing like oversized sunglasses—across the subject’s face, undercutting the gravitas of traditional portraiture.

     
  4. Worth Sharing:

    Uniqlo is now selling a t-shirt line influenced by contemporary artists. Like this Sarah Morris inspired shirt.

    Street artist Michael De Feo created bloemen violet, a jubilant, graffiti-infused silkscreen print, one of 50, as a collaboration with Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation, a New York City-based nonprofit that both provides inner city youth with significant exposure to the arts and supports emerging artists.

  8. Inspiration:  At a Creative Mornings event last week, a couple of us had the chance to pop in on Dustin Yellin’s studio and got a glimpse of his amazing space and some of his works in progress.

  12. #Daily Art Fix:

    Huang Yan is known for overlaying traditional Chinese paintings on his models’ faces and torsos. This work is a particularly striking—the painted subject looks directly at the viewer, his cultural heritage deeply imbedded into his personal identity, not unlike a tattoo.

  15. #ARTMOMENT(s)

    We’ve been taking the west coast by storm this past week. We teamed up with Nordstrom to add an artful element to their Designer Showcase and spent time at YBCA in San Fran for a special evening amidst their current exhibition “Public Intimacy: Art and Other Ordinary Acts in South Africa.” Pit stops along the way included Jessica Silverman and John Berggruen galleries. We are sharing all of these pics via #artmoment, follow along and join in!
