Guggenheim #10 in my 20-Year-Series

Introducing the 10th Guggenheim in my 20-year-series… aptly titled, “Guggenheim 10”. By all accounts — this painting was a journey. After kicking-off the under-painting of this piece in June, I noticed the canvas was warped, so I slashed it to bits, and started over. Following that, I found myself traveling around the world… Vegas, Paris, …

A Short Video Introduction to Hilma af Klint, the Mystical Female Painter Who Helped Invent Abstract Art

It can be both a blessing and curse for an artist to toil at the behest of an influential patron. Financial support and powerful connections are among the obvious perks. Being hamstrung by someone else’s ego and timeframe are some of the less welcome realities on the flip side. Hilma af Klint, the subject of a high profile exhibition at the Guggenheim, does not fit the usual artist-patron mold. She made her paintings to suit a spirit named Amaliel, with whom she connected in a seance. Amali...

America’s famous buildings reimagined as Gothic structures

Imagination is a fun game to play, and can result in interesting products brought about by unusual inspirations or strange combinations. Architecture has evolved so much over time and over space, but here’s a look at NeoMam Studios’ vision if American architecture fully embraced the Gothic movement. The guys at NeoMam took a look at famous structures, taking their original styles and replacing its flavor with that of Gothic architecture. The Golden Gate Bridge’s (above) art deco style was replac...

Frank Gehry on His Formative Experiences

Rank these in order of which you think is most interesting:1. Hearing a designer talk about their work2. Hearing a designer explain how they got started3.

He also touches on how sof...

New York – Alberto Giacometti at Guggenheim Museum Through September 12th, 2018

Giacometti (Installation view), via Art Observed White, for Alberto Giacometti, is presented as something of an etheric form, the color of death or absence playing on is interrelation with temporal action.  Space is generated only from the presence of space, and not from its reciprocal orientation. His practice is disposed towards the ideal void, where reality, […]

Art Review: Giacometti: Beguiled by Thin Men and Women

The Guggenheim mines the wide world of the Swiss sculptor — witty and dripping with sex, or looking into the abyss. There’s despair but humaneness, too.

This breathtaking Tulum art gallery was created by Peggy Guggenheim's great-grandson

Much like the Guggenheim Museums around the world, a new art gallery founded by the great-grandson of Peggy Guggenheim is a true architectural showstopper. Santiago Rumney Guggenheim commissioned designer Jorge Eduardo Neira Sterkel to create IK LAB, a stunning arts gallery that opened late last month in Tulum, Mexico. Topped with a curved timber canopy, the nature-inspired space is located within the eco-friendly Azulik resort. Upon entering, visitors are asked to slip off their shoes and “t...

The leadership-by-committee model […]
