You started your career as a painter and sculptor, and first became involved in photography with a project you did making portraits of women artists in New York City. I felt that male artists were photographed a lot, and I wasn’t seeing as many representations of women artists, and those that I did see weren’t…

Whitney Biennial and Tate Triennial 2006


It may not be a fair comparison but you can’t help wondering: How can the Whitney Biennial be so exciting and the Tate Triennial so tedious when both are showcasing the same kind of contemporary art on either side of a well-traversed pond?

James Siena


Can an artwork, and by extension the artist, be considered obsessive? James Siena: Selected Paintings and Drawings, 1990 – 2004, the artist’s 2004 mini-retrospective at Daniel Weinberg’s L.A. gallery would certainly seem to beg the question. Fastidiously installed in the gallery’s two exhibition spaces, the nineteen modestly scaled works – none larger than 29 x 23 inches – contain thousands upon thousands of concentrated brushstrokes.

Your current project is called Evans Pond, Sequential Photographs, a Long-term Study. Where is Evans Pond? It’s about 80 miles south of New York, in New Jersey.

Albert Kresch


A new model of modern art has emerged since MOMA’s 2004 reopening, one that is quite helpful in appreciating the long yet underknown career of Albert Kresch (born 1922). The reconfigured galleries at MOMA were hung to reflect a hard won principle: there have been “a succession of arguments and counter-arguments on the continually disputed…

Karlis Rekevics


Karlis Rekevics is at the beginning of his career, and yet his work doesn’t bring to mind any other artist. His complex white plaster sculptures, cast from molds made of plywood, masonite and blue foam, are multi-part forms with neon tubes and/or light bulbs attached to them. They are intuitively composed amalgamations of anonymous objects…
