For his inaugural exhibition at the gallery, Swiss artist Nicolas Party has executed two site-specific murals that transform the interior while creating a singular environment for a recent group of large-scale pictures and bronze sculptures. Working exclusively in vivid, highly-pigmented chalk pastels – either directly on the walls or primed canvases – Party invites us to rediscover this once popular but now often neglected medium. Respectful of the traditions that precede him on the …

blog | Laurence Miller Gallery, in partnership with Asia Week New York, presents Toshio Shibata – Harmony (March 9 – April 29, 2017)

Toshio Shibata’s connections with Japanese artistic tradition are intriguing. He purposefully went against the grain of the traditional Japanese concept of landscape, yet his viewpoint is unmistakably Japanese. His work has a strong connection with the way classical Japanese architecture integrates itself within its environment. In this sense, Shibata’s mediations on the contemporary landscape have a surprising connection to classical Japanese tea pavilions - both are set caref …

blog | Natura Dentata - Art and fashion in a dark embrace (March 17–June 18, 2017), Stockholm

A picnic in the grass. The wind in the leaves. Sweet-smelling wild flowers. Glades full of berries and mushrooms. Birdsong. Sunset. Shades of green. Signs of wildlife. Enchanting northern lights. The Nordic feeling for nature involves an almost spiritual relationship to the forest, the landscape, the water and the animal kingdom. We go fishing, camping, swimming, trekking in deep snow. We see the seasons as an asset, and turn to nature for joy and relaxation. Like a paradise. But nature is not j …
