Alice Aycock Parrish Museum Opening review

Alice Aycock Drawings:Some Stories Are Worth Repeating
April 21, 2013 to July 13, 2013

Ayice Aycock, The Parrish Crowd
The opening of Alice Aycock's Drawings, at the Parrish Museums last night was well attended. Alice's exhibition was interspersed with sculptural maquettes depicted with in the drawings. An understanding of Sacred Geometry was explored; possible astrological or mystical influences could be interpreted from this display. Incorporated into the images, as an understanding of Art, Design & Architecture stated as artistic metaphors seen in engineering, reflections into Di Vinci, M.C. Esher, and from my viewpoint the early Russian Avant Garde art.   Additional vast cultural influences may be seen in the works reflective of Thangka paintings, Persian Mosaics, possible engineered space and time warps. Aycock's unusual mechanical perspective was in part noted as foray into computer imagery. The artists expression is labeled as...Aycock is an artist who thinks on paper,” writes Terrie Sultan ... “Her spectacular drawings are equal parts engineering plan and science-fiction imagining. As in all of her work, fantastic narrative writings weave in and out of her images, inspiring her production of sculptural objects, drawings, and installations.”... Sultan Terri, http://parrishart.org/ 4/21/2013 Parrish Art Museum’s Adjunct Curator Jonathan Fineberg, Gutgsell Professor of Art History Emeritus at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign  Urbaan, organized this exhibit. The exhibition's slant or emphasis seems to reflect Urbana's academic environment, as a great Social Science university possibly not fully capturing the intend of the works as displayed. Language as Metaphor, seen to be developed with in a statistical analytic lens possibly seen as the computer or engineering may have influenced this curators understanding, spin, and or story retelling with in the exhibition as dialogue. I felt the display of Alice Aycock's work, Some Stories Are Worth Repeating, shown in an almost static atmosphere not in keeping for what is an outstanding etherial, out of the box, collection of works. Do visit the Parrish on line or in person to enjoy Alice Aycock’s works.

New York Woman in Film & Television needs your help to preserve "Seven Women Seven Sins" Join now


There are just 3 days left for you to rescue this sinful film by women!
Raised so far: $2,717
Goal: $17,000

Make a contribution now, and send this to everyone you know. DONATIONS 

New York Women in Film & Television?s WFPF contributes to an 
understanding of the importance of women in film history. WFPF has 
saved over 100 films in the last 15 years.  Do not let this one be lost

All donations are tax-deductible 

Without preservation Seven Women Seven Sins will continue to decay 
until it can't be viewed at all! Helping to preserve this film will 
allow for access and public viewing through screening prints and DVDs.

About the Project
Seven Women Seven Sins brought together some of the world?s most renown
women directors: Helke Sander (GLUTTONY), Bette Gordon (GREED), Maxi 
Cohen (ANGER), Chantal Akerman (SLOTH), Valie Export (LUST), Laurence 
Gavron (ENVY), and Ulrike Ottinger (PRIDE). Each filmmaker chose a sin 
to interpret as they wished. The final film reflected this diversity, 
including traditional narrative fiction, experimental video, a musical,
and a radical documentary.

Funding Goal
$43,000 is needed to preserve this important work. However, we have 
already raised $25,000 in cash and in-kind services. Our goal is to 
raise $17,000 through this campaign.

Support & Share
Donate now and help Seven Women Seven Sins survive for future 
Don?t forget to share this campaign with others! Post on Facebook,

Kim Dorland Ghosts of You and Me @ the Mike Wiss Gallery

 Kim Dorland
 Ghosts of You and Me 

  Opening May 2, 2013
  On View Through June 8 

  520 West 24th Street
  New York, NY 10011
  T. 212 691 6899

Kim Dorland / Ghost of a Drunk (or Self-Portrait) / 2013 /
Oil and acrylic on jute over wood panel / 96 x 72 in.
Mike Weiss Gallery is pleased to present Canadian artist Kim Dorland's third solo exhibition at the gallery, a tour-de-force of large-scale oil works on canvas that transport us to a place of heightened psychological portent as they transfix us with an undeniably sensual physicality. Known for his thick impasto marks and near-sculptural effect, Dorland's newest body of work amps up recent color palettes, returning to fluorescent oranges and penetrating, acrid greens, liberating their application into a looser expression of drips and washes. The title, Ghosts of You and Me, besides being a Leonard Cohen lyric and woeful personal reflection, alludes to the at-times otherworldly glow that now grips his subjects: lone drunks and sleepwalking dreamers, ghostly clearings in dark forests, and glimpses of the artist so engulfed in his own creative act that we, as viewers, seem to hover at their perimeter.

For questions or more information, please contact Anna Ortt, Director, at anna@mikeweissgallery.com.

Rough Surf 30 x 40 oil on canvas
When you get down to the ocean you never quite know what to expect. Will it be peaceful and flat, or rough and churned up?  The sea with its changeable and unpredictable moods will confound you every time.
It doesn’t seem to matter what kind of temper the water is in. When we take it in and watch the action, we feel better.
I like to face the waves head on so that the horizon, the waves and the shore line up in horizontal bands.  You might notice most of my wave paintings are composed this way. There is something brave in facing the tangible force of the wave that helps to strengthen the backbone.
Until next time,

Special Art Offer: This year I decided that each month I would take 10% of my art sales and donate it to a different charity that I know.  This month that charity is “Have A Heart Community Trust” in Southampton, N.Y.  http://www.haveaheartcommunitytrust.org/
They give direct emergency relief to residents of the East End of Long Island in times of crisis.
