The Flame of Love

If you wear glasses, bring them, or the joys of Joseph Martinez’s intricate exhibition will pass you by. Steady Hands, Blurry Vision at Soze Gallery, Los Angeles, features a number of the artist’s trademark miniature works: beautiful oil paintings skilfully rendered on the insides of matchbooks. The paintings, often of female nudes, are lent a poignant fragility by their circumstances, flanked or caged by the matches which could ignite and consume them at any moment. The level of detail is a real mind-blower – if, like me, you have trouble seeing the TV at 10 paces, it’s as fine an advert for corrective laser surgery as there is.

Martinez, a self-taught artist from Denver, also works on a larger scale, and this exhibition will include a number of bigger pieces in a variety of media. Steady Hands, Blurry Vision is Martinez’s first solo gallery show (a tricky prospect to stage I should imagine); it’s on now and runs until 29 February.

Fantasy and Reality

The alternative universe of Joao Ruas is a strangely familiar one – like a tracing of our own laid back upon it, but slightly askew. The Brazilian has opened the doorway to his fantastical imagination in Verso (Back), a collection of ethereal beauty, symbolism, sex and magic which draws the viewer in like the gnarled and beckoning hand of a one-eyed old crone.

Ruas weaves together mythological elements from a wide-range of cultures, and in that weaving creates something recognisable and yet totally new. Shamanic figures haunt the landscape; nymphs drape themselves decoratively on noble tasseled horses. Many limbed temptresses and demigodesses pose with grotesque masks, birds of ominous portent preen on their perches, and all the while contemporary imagery keeps yanking the viewer back from where they have drifted, linking these past or imagined lives to our own. This excellent journey is yours to take at Thinkspace gallery in Culver City, California, in the form of 15 drawings and paintings, plus video presentations and behind-the-scenes material, from 1 February to 22 February.

Realistic Paintings by William Fisk

Le peintre canadien William Fisk aime peindre au reflet près des objets du passé : un vieil appareil photo Yashica, des vielles radios avec des traits extrêmement précis. Sa série « Portraits », très réussie, nous fait hésiter entre peinture et objets réels photographiés. Plus d’images dans la suite de l’article.

Dorothy Iannone is an artist with balls, and This Sweetness Outside of Time, a retrospective of her long and illustrious career, displays her unflinching autobiographical style in all its glory. Beginning her career in the late 1950s, the American’s style really blossomed on meeting Dieter Roth in the late ’60s. This intense seven-year relationship moved the artist to place herself and Roth at the centre of her passionate works. Regularly falling foul of the censors, her sexually explicit scenes draw on influences from religious art from Christianity, Buddhism and Indian Tantrism, as well as collage and pop art.

Iannone’s time with Roth marked a long association with Germany; the pair lived in Dusseldorf, and in 1976 Iannone was awarded a DAAD Artists-in-Berlin grant and moved to the capital, where she has lived and worked ever since. The Berlinische Galerie has curated this retrospective – which includes objects, books and films in addition to the paintings – from the artist’s personal archive and those of worldwide collectors; the exhibition will run from 20 February to 2 June.

Animated classic paintings by Rino Stefano Tagliafierro

This video is probably the most stunning thing we’ve seen in quite a while. Using a 2.5D animation effect, Rino Stefano Tagliafierro brought these iconic paintings to life in a beautiful, haunting way. Everything from the sequence to the music creates an atmosphere that is nearly impossible to take your eyes away from. Yes, technology – and imagination – can create amazing things.

Painting Without Sight

Painting Without Sight1 Painting Without Sight
Turkish resident, Esref Armagan, was born in 1953 with a condition that most of us would find completely debilitating; he was born blind. One of his eyes was very underdeveloped, and very small, and the other was totally non-functional. However, Armagan did not let this define him. He chose early on not to give in and live a life of disability, but rather a full and accomplished one.

Armagan had been interested in art from a very young age. During childhood, he would often create art pieces using everyday household objects. Then, at the age of 8, he made his first drawing, which was a butterfly. By the time he reached adulthood, he was very skilled with oil paints.

Red Alert

Located amid downtown Manhattan’s famous Wooster Street, Italian import (via Milan) Cappellini houses furniture designed by international forward thinkers. Founder Giulio Cappellini continues to introduce curated experiences into his showroom with current installation Fragments of the Apocalypse, courtesy of brilliant New York-based artist and designer Jeremyville.

Contextualised through an abstract perspective and playful palette, the drawings, paintings and prints compliment the red walls that distinguish the Italian design store, creating an ebullient dynamic throughout. Exploring variation and scale, Jeremyville introduces his newly-designed series of wooden characters: Jethro, Harmony, Sherman and Annalee, who interact with their surroundings, narrating the fanciful landscape the artist has created throughout his wall pieces.

Fragments of the Apocalypse is on view now, through 31 January.

Sail Away

Let’s face it, once Christmas has come and gone it just seems like a long, cold slog towards May. A cheery little thought for you there, but we can help! To to help overcome those post-holiday blues, pack yourselves a picnic basket and cast off for the warm, tranquil waters of Ceri Hand Gallery, there to bask in the sun-kissed summery creations of artist Charlie Billingham.

A watercolour Charlie painted while on holiday in Greece provided the spark for this larger project called Tender. The painting can be seen transformed into the tapestries that lie at the centre of the architectural installation, on which rest the dominant elements of Tender. Three shapes, based on the silhouettes of Laser Pico sailing boats and made from zebrano wood and chrome, form a display for a pair of paintings. These boats can be seen in the extended series of works stretching along the gallery’s longer walls. Each shows a pair of boats, with the viewer invited to decide whether the craft are at rest or if the scene is an action snapshot. Tender will remain moored at Ceri Hand Gallery until 18 January.

Hyperrealistic paintings by Borja Bonafuente

Hyperrealistic paintings by Borja Bonafuente

Bands like The Beatles, KISS and Queen not only left deep marks in the world of music, but in the art world as well. Seeing the endless source of inspiration, interpretation and creation, the young Spanish artist Borja Bonafuente Gonzalo combines the history of portraiture with music.

Since his life is music, he is reflecting it in his work through musical references such as famous poses, make-up or the name of the artwork itself. His large format creations enable the spectator to see the wealth of details that make his personal style of hyperrealism such a success.

The Blokker Gallery in Madrid has discovered this emerging talent and will be sharing it with the rest of us in March in an exhibition called Mi querida España.

I just wanna I get by with a little help from my friends Remember New York staring outside Amanda

Santa Hilariously Invades Famous Works Of Art

Photographer Ed Wheeler superimposes himself dressed as Santa in some of the world's most famous paintings. The results are hysterical.

When I was a little kid, my father told me around Christmas one year that I should always make sure to behave, because Santa was everywhere. It was a terrifying prospect, but it turns out he was right: Santa is everywhere, even in the paintings of some of art's classical masters. It's all the work of photographer Ed Wheeler, who superimposes himself dressed as Santa in the works of Botticelli, Caravaggio, Monet and more.
