By Sara Sweet in New Art on Sunday 12 January 2014

The paintings from the exhibition Piece of Life at Boers-Li Gallery in Beijing depict an extremely beautiful time-consuming process. In the work Piece of Life No. 14, thick paint is applied to the canvas which is then etched into floral patterns. Artist Yuanwei then adds different coloured paint to the etched areas, which allows the pattern to be visible.

THE HELLO TOMORROW SERIES: This London gallery is a work of art itself

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in Architecture on Friday 22 March 2013

The inspiration may be water, but the Roca London Gallery designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, with its minimalistic undulating contoured walls and neutral, monochromatic hues, is so other-worldly that it calls to mind a spaceship instead. Even the tiles have wavy edges. Most of the galley’s furniture, from the reception desk to shelves, are made of glass-reinforced plastics.

Venice6114: the mechanic’s garage art gallery

Matt Warren Reader Find

By Matt Warren in New Events on Thursday 17 January 2013

Situated at Venice and La Cienega, Venice 6114 is a hidden gem amongst Culver City’s more established galleries. Run by Sergio Bromberg, the gallery shuns the traditional white cube space adopted by its neighbors. Instead it uses the locale, which still retains the facade and feel of the mechanics garage it once was, as a shell to transform into whatever environment is necessary for the featured artist. Bromberg doesn’t simply put on exhibitions – he puts on events.

Ron English Reader Find

By Ron English in New Art on Monday 22 October 2012

Street Art is fast becoming an international institution, the likes of which the insular Art World has never seen. As a cultural phenomenon, Street Art has become something more akin to a stadium rap/rock concert than the sparsely attended pictures on walls model which has served as the Art World’s signature profile for some time now.

Glasslands Gallery: an art gallery and party venue in Brooklyn

Caitlin Sullivan Reader Find

By Caitlin Sullivan in New Art on Wednesday 5 September 2012

Brooklyn’s appeal is fairly well represented by Glasslands Gallery. A dingy side street of in-progress factories-turned-lofts holds this venue by night, and a gallery always. With a fluffy pink cloud awning protruding over the stage, and a balcony built from trees and bike parts, its scenery alone sets it apart. Depending on the night, anything […]
