Revision, reality reflected in Shirin Abedinirad’s televisions

Revision, reality reflected in Shirin Abedinirad’s televisions

Giulia Ficicchia · 5 years ago · Art

The world of television seems infinite: 24 hours a day, seven days a week, there’s always a spot, a tv series, a reality show or a televised debate to keep you company.

What if the programming is being completely revolutionized and being held by the normal flow of nature? It’s not a kind of dystopic future, but the idea that has inspired the last installation of the artist, Shirin Abedinirad, Revision, realized for the Lorne Sculpture Biennale 2018 in Victoria.

A pyramid of old televisions reflects through its particular screen an image of the natural world that surrounds it, as the Australian ocean’s waves or the long beach or a rainbow after the rain or the reflection of someone who is passing by and is watching himself in the screen of a television for the first time.

It’s just the most underrated tv shows of the century, reality.

Cityscapes by painter Jeremy Mann

Cityscapes by painter Jeremy Mann

Buddy · 5 years ago · Art

Jeremy Mann is an artist from San Francisco, one of the most interesting and emerging figures in the contemporary realist painting panorama.

His style suggests a contemporary and urban impressionism, like a new Monet that instead of water lilies and reflections on the water is hit by the night lights of a skyscraper seen from the window of his car.

Jeremy’s Cityscapes are blurred and sharp, their colors are dazzling and dark. These are interwoven with a romantic realism, by a melancholic nocturnal animal, which is swallowed up by the city, its smoky atmosphere and the flashing lights.

In his paintings you expect the wiper to pass any minute now, or that a drop will start to flow along the canvas. Each of his works is a mix of mystery and abrasive charm, capable of portraying the sublime light of iconic cities such as New York and San Francisco.

Here is our selection of his works, then take a tour of his site to discover all the projects.

The fate of urban nature on the New York works of Pejac

The fate of urban nature on the New York works of Pejac

Giulia Ficicchia · 5 years ago · Art

Walking in some neighborhoods of New York, coming into contact with the natural world can be very hard and it doesn’t seem to get better in the future.

Thinking about the last one and imagining sometimes a not quite happy ending, the Estonian artist, Pejac, has realized two works in New York, Inner Power and Fossil, precisely in Chinatown and Bushwick.

A painted branch of a cherry tree seems to be able to penetrate the curtain of a Chinatown’s place, growing out of it and showing its wonderful flowers in the company of some birds, while the appearance of a tree, realized with a spray can, imagines a not so happy fate.

The two works, even they have a similar theme, represent two kinds of future: one where nature can impose itself on the human dominance of concrete and bricks and one where only a memory seems to survive to the time.

It’s quite easy to say that we route for the first one.

Joaquin Phoenix will personify the protagonist and will be supported indeed by a great cast composed by Jonah Hill ( the wolf of Wall Street, Suxbad), Roney Mara (who recently sided with  Phoenix in Maria Maddalena), Jack Black (School of Rock, Tropic Thunder) and many others.
