http://iamlogansquare.blogspot.com/2012/04/made-in-logan-squarehech... The exhibition will include graffiti art, photography, graphic art and paintings by CHema Skandal!, Kill Monster Kill, FLASH, and Francisco Rosado. The artists, most of which are longtime residents, all live in Logan Square and are Latino. The exhibition curator, Francisco Rosado, says that he conceptualized the group show as the Logan Square Dream Artist Union, Inc. after being “inspired by living in this neighborhood as an artist for a decade and never seeing a gallery close by.” Rosado came up with the idea for the exhibition based on his vision of creating a supportive network for neighborhood artists. “The mostly Latino section of Milwaukee Avenue, where the gallery is located, made me think of using the show as a medium to gather Latino artists of the area to showcase their art, network, and create similar events that could bring together not only artists and art lovers, but the local people that fill the city blocks around the gallery as well. This exhibition is about the need for diversity of perspectives, but also about solidarity, freedom, gathering and love for the arts.” Made In Logan Square will be on display from May 3 to May 31, 2012. The gallery is free and open to the public on Tuesdays through Thursdays, from noon to 6 pm, and on Friday and Saturday, from noon to 4pm and by appointment. The gallery is closed on Sundays and Mondays. http://coquiigloo.bandcamp.com/

PRESS RELEASE

 

THE GREEK CONTEMPORARY VISUAL ARTIST

 

EVI   PHOTOPOULOS

 

AS  AN AWARDED BIENNALE ARTIST

 

WILL  EXHIBIT HER ARTWORKS

 

AMONG  40  INTERNATIONAL ARTISTS AT:

 

"CHIANCIANO  BIENNALE IN LONDON"

 

GAGLIARDI   GALLERY  27th of APRIL 17.00pm

 

from 27th APRIL till 5th MAY,2012

 

ORGANISED BY THE CHIANCIANO ART MUSEUM, ITALY

 

The selection of EVI PHOTOPOULOS'S works was guided by the nature of

 

instantaneous depiction characterizing the works of the collection,

 

paintings. Such instantaneous depiction is

 

destined to last forever, not solely because it aims to capture the

 

eternal in the ephemeral but also because its task is to crystallize in

 

memory and the gaze of the artist. Thus most of the works are

 

representational or anthropomorphic; they depict faces  in

 

which human presence is implied. It is this human presence resisting

 

time or compromising with it, through art that is presented in this

 

collection.

Comment by Alexander Sutulov on March 20, 2012 at 2:16






When I ask a client if they have a work of art:

How do they realize it’s an actual artwork?

Answers can be of the most varied, in part because they identified with what the work transmits masterfully, like the color of a landscape. You will also discover more pragmatic approaches which are understood as the works added value being the reflection of an intrinsic value associated to genuine artistic value beyond personal taste.

All answers are valid, particularly when it comes to personal perceptions which establish empathy in time with a growing and enriching artistic expression. Nevertheless, my answer is that there is something beyond the above which relates with the artwork transcendence. In other words, when an artistic manifestation in the form of a painting, sculpture or print appropriates a space and the spectator incorporates such experience, never again that person will be the same one before…

Perplex to my observation, their immediate reply is why? Something to which I respond that the usual praxis is the habit of observing artworks is through the appreciation of its formal elements in line of its objectivity, but when an authentic work of art transcends within the spectator, it’s because its message is beyond formality.

Thus, it’s the moment when a work of art begins to observe back at you!  

      



Understanding the generic definition of painting as a coloured drawing, digital painting in contrast to all form of traditional painting can be characterized in two singular aspects. The first one, taken from the model of indirect method, establishes a particular process of additive and subtractive relationships through the superimposition and interaction of multiple layers subject not only to the phenomena of reflected light, such is the case of traditional veil painting, but also projected light. On the other hand, the aleatoric nature of digital process involves by definition, the use of second generation image. This fusion of a pictorial work through a concept of indirect method and graphic work through the use of second generation images opens a new field of visual exploration where its versatility has predetermined in the last decades, a creative pool of exponential growth.


The images above illustrate a basic methodology of how to begin understanding the fundamentals of digital painting as an image building process. In its initial phase, the artist has created a series of mixed media drawings on polycarbonate film specially formulated to be receptive to a wide range of drawing materials such as: graphite, charcoal, prisma color, rubbing ink, India ink, Tusche ink, litho crayon and any form of pigment and vehicle which reacts to the hydroscopic qualities inherent to the granulation of the mentioned substrate.    
The monochromatic images or original drawings on the top left have been divided in two genres. The first two columns are washes where depending on the viscosity of its vehicle, the pigment will reticulate in different patterns. From the old traditions of continuous tone lithography, Tusche ink (high density pigment ink) has been the trademark of many artists in how to achieve various forms of textures and tectonic qualities. The same way we can observe above, the difference between a lacquer thinner wash and turpentine wash with alcohol applications. In contrast, the right hand columns exemplify subtractive techniques with charcoal drawing and #1-#7calibrated litho crayon halftone drawing.


In the lower portion, we observe the same drawings which have been digitalized in quadtone modality where the artist assigns to each channel a specific chromatic and tonal value. Understanding the nature of digital work with millions of colours the possibilities are infinite. In order to schematize the process, the artist divides tonal scale in four areas, shadows or low tones, lower halftones, higher halftones and highlights. By curvature effect each tonal area of the image is assigned to a specific value. In this preliminary stage of digital colorations, the artist’s decisions are somehow predetermined by the additive and subtractive relationships which will take place later on.
 

The final image on the right hand side or B.A.T., abbreviation taken from the French expression: “bon-à-tirer” meaning: “right to print” is an example when all four drawings have been superimposed and interacted by layers. The multiple relationships of layer interaction which can be established in addition to the use of mask, filters and tonal modulation constitutes the true potential creativity inherent to the use of second generation images. 




GASCO Energy Sculpture / Santiago, Chile 2000:

In
virtue of GASCO corporate building remodeling located at Santo Domingo
Street Nº 1061 at the hands of Izquierdo Lehmann Architects back in
1999, the company’s board commissioned a sculpture allusive to the
energy by man in his quest to survival.


The
river stone bed is a metaphor to the energy contained by Earth’s
natural resources, the steel legs are man’s intervention and the marble
sphere represents pure energy.

 




TERRITORIA 3000 Cultural Project / Santiago, Chile 2006:

In
virtue of new business centers realized for Santiago as a future
financial capital in Latin America, Territoria real-estate commissioned
project proposal which contemplated the buildings cultural impact
amongst its neighboring edifications projected in front of Peru Square,
known as Territoria 3.000.


The
project proposal contemplated 8 double sided free hanging murals where
each module was 9.60 mt in height and 4.80 mt across. Outside the
building’s perimeter, 8 sculptures were projected with 4 in the
buildings front façade and 4 totemic figures in its east side courtyard.



Chile Borderland / Philippi Museum / Valdivia, Chile 2008

The
works which are part of the Museum Philippi collection correspond to
morphological studies of Chilean landscape titled “Chile Borderland”.
The specific artist interest to exhibit at a regional natural history
museum was the possibility of creating an event to promote and amplify
the country’s identity.






Spirits of the Mind Mural / Santiago College / Santiago, Chile 2012:

With
the moving of Santiago College School to its new campus at Los
Trapenses, it became imperative the creation of an allegoric artwork
capable of captivating the alma mater of the original school campus. For
these purpose a large scale mural was thought-out to be installed at
the new Dining Hall. The iconographic proposal was based on an
architectural survey of the old campus combined with a landscape
morphological study of the new campus location at La Dehesa Valley whose
distinctive landmark is the Manquehue Hill.

 

The
above is closely related to Guillermo Rosende’s master plan, the school
design architect where the orientation and shape of more than 10
buildings which constitute the new campus, are in relation and
proportion to the surrounding landscape.






History of Chilean Mining Mural / Concepción, Chile 2005:

In commemoration of Chilean Large Mining Bicentennial (1905 – 2005), the mural was inaugurated at the Metallurgical Engineering new building. Mural project sponsored by Chilean Mining Bureau, CODELCO’s El Teniente Division and the University of Concepción. 




The Andes: Vertical Column of America / Santiago, Chile 2010

Part of the artist studio informative work at a public level, is the creation of exhibiting projects which allow contextualizing the artwork within different spaces accessible to the urban pedestrian. The above includes installations which in the case of the work in reference, it was realized with the collaboration of Chilean artist, Hugo Marín.








Franco Ballotta Design Project / Parque Arauco, Santiago, Chile
One
of the main challenges with Franco Ballotta men’s store was to discover
a unifying element between the design of menswear tradition and a
historical past whose distinctive trademark was Italian design clothes.
The main icon was a mural with the equestrian portrait of Marcus
Aurelius the Roman governor, Pompey. So much the store’s front window,
exhibition furniture and store logo were all based on Roman Republican
funeral architecture.




Saint George Mural Project, Isidora Building 1999:


Equestrian
apology where central image corresponds to s XIII Novgorod’s Saint
George flanked by Marcus Aurelius triumphant entries and Durer
anatomical equestrian studies. In the upper section in the form of a
continuous frieze, the general composition is crowned by a procession of
Teutonic Knights.


Together
with the mural, Bolivian Mahogany hardwood board of director’s chair
was designed, the same wood utilized for the mural’s framework.   




Casa Irina Mural Project / Curaumilla, Chile 2008

The work in collaboration with architects, designers, landscapers, etc. is a crucial aspect in order to conceive large format work for residential or more private spaces. In the case of Casa Irina, the project was realized in coordination with the owner; architect Andrés Zauschkevich, where the house’s landscape morphological surrounding had an important role in the design of the mural. The image was worked in 12 different stages, being the latter one use as the final image for the mural.




El Golf & Nueva Las Condes district office remodelling

Understanding
the new quality standards in the real state sector characterized by
Class A buildings, the mounting and emplacement of artwork have an added
value at the moment of implementing exclusive designs different from
more conventional framing. Amongst the different challenges, none
polycarbonate or glass protection frames were made with large format
prints. The main objective was to emphasize the velvety surface inherent
to Intaglio.


The
new proposal for office space is in coordination with Iván Ojeda from
FIC Constructions whose clientele is characterized by the office space
in reference.






Atelier Alexander Sutulov Limited Editions

Small format serial work together with serial work on paper in general, is subject to a more intimate approach from the spectator’s perspective. The more delicate character associated to printmaking halftones for example, makes graphic work highly descriptive. The artist studio not only emphasizes on the above, but also, all curatorial work regarding edition printing, anywhere from its documentation like the emission of authenticity certificates describing the works genesis all the way to its final presentation with elegant artist design portfolios.





 Atelier Alexander Sutulov Editorial Projects

Taking into account the studio’s graphic work, editorial projects designed by the artist are a complement where additionally an iconographic research work is developed which speaks of for example, the richness of different historical periods in the world of art. That’s how in the book devoted to the cult of the Sacred Heart, author María Loreto Marín Estevez: “A Spring of Love & Mercy: The Heart of Christ”, is a compendium of more than 500 color pages where not only historical Christian Art iconography is being rescued, but also, they are being visually contextualize in accordance to the book’s conceptual overview.

                   Hi

Not sure if you've heard of us?!?! ... 
www.showcase-cities.com ... http://blog.showcase-cities.com/ ... please also find a short extract below which explains what we're all about...

"Showcase Cities offers superbly presented and beautifully lit commission free exhibition space to artists from all walks of life. Each event presents a fantastic opportunity to see up-and-coming artists display new ideas, new work and new styles.  Providing a regular, affordable and much needed platform, supporting emerging artists, enabling them to showcase work, generate instant exposure and make those all important commission free sales.  Embracing all styles, since our first show in June 2009 we’ve seen artists exhibit everything from Fine Art and Photography to Sculpture and Fashion Design."

Last months show (Feb 15th @ RICHMIX, E1 6LA) reflected a fantastic start to the year with artists Mark Hayward, Tatiana May, Carlos Martyn Burgos, Megan Brewer and Kimbal Bumstead all making sales - earning themselves over £1200.00 on the night commission free !!!  The atmosphere was electric with record attendance seeing 300+ visitors/buyers arriving and a fantastic live musical performance from Anja McCloskey + her band.

With the Olympics almost here - London's Eastend has never been so vibrant and we expect our shows to get busier and busier :)  Exhibition spaces are very limited at the moment, however we've just had a space come available for our March 21st group exhibition, and we would like to give you priority - its a centrally located and beautifully lit (see attached) - would suit your work perfectly.

We suspect this spot will only be available for a short space of time - so get back to us as soon as possible if you would like to be part of the exhibition? - its going to be another good one ;) ... should you have any further questions about any aspect of how we run our shows, please do ask!

Kind regards,

Blair

EVI PHOTOPOULOS

 

THE GREEK CONTEMPORARY VISUAL ARTIST

 

 

SOUTHERN NEVADA

Museum of Fine Arts

"Bloom  Land"

 

International Contemporary Masters Vol V

Exhibition 2nd March– 2ndJune 2012

 
«The storm of  fire in 2007, one of the greatest disasters in Greece to this date, is turned by the hands of Evi Photopoulos into an active field of a unique spiritual and aesthetic experience». Katerina Voreadou,
Natural History Museum of Crete.

 «The artist, Mrs. Photopoulos  through her paintings once again spreads the message of hope and faith that we can all come to love nature again».Giannis Drositis, Heraklion Municipal Art Gallery


Sensitive to the environmental  issues which greatly affect our small neighborhoods as well as the whole of Greece and ultimately the entire planet ,assist the cry of protest through art of Evi Photopoulos for the
indifference, overexploitation, "rape" and destruction of our natural environment.


On Saturday, March 10th , the first month of  the spring, when we all admire the splendor of  nature, this cry of despair from the artist echoes even more tragic to our complacent ears.
Evi Photopoulos' oil paintings included in the series, "Bloom Land," constitute a continuation of the traditions of Byzantine Art. The dark tones and deep dramatic colours, which lead associatively to the ritual atmosphere of the Byzantine churches, become a counterpoint to the cold breath of polished aluminum
and  remind one of the explosive religious iconography of the Divine Judgment and the Second Coming.


At the same time, her paintings are modern and comprehensible, overflowing with the passion of the creator who is shaken and overwhelmed by the actions of Man against Man and against the Environment accommodating him.


Summarizing  her views, the artist states: "Through my series of works, "The Bloom Land" I wish to inform all fellow-human beings to the point where each and every one of us acquires a sensitive environmental awareness and power of freedom to demand the future of the next generation on Earth".


Evi Photopoulos studied initially in the Art Workshop of great Greek carver Konstantinos Grammatopoulos (1990-1994).
She then travelled to Milan where she was specialized in clothing design (1995-1999), in order to experiment also with other printing and art creation materials.
Her experience was enriched by her apprenticeship in the Art Workshop of N. Christoforakis in Athens (2000-2003) she continued in the Byzantine Workshop of N. Giannakakis (2004-2007), and then afterwards concluded her studies at London Art College & Tate Courses (2007-2009) thus completing in total a seventeen-year study in the field.


Her work has been exhibited at the: MUNICIPAL ART GALLERY OF (LOS ANGELES & HERAKLION OF CRETE), HLSI HIGHGATE GALLERY - LONDON, INFINITY GALLERY - NEW YORK, ARTWORK GALLERY -DENVER,FACTORY OF ART-OLIVE PRESS -CHANIA, ART FORUM -BERLIN,(PREBIENNALE & PROJECT JUNE) in “STUDIO CARAPOSTOL” –VENICE &CHIANCIANO BIENNALE- MUSEUM OF MODERN ART,GUANLAN BASE PRINT-BIENNALE CHINA,MERIDA MUSEO MEXICO-EFFETO BIENNALE.

registro fotográfico montaje Edificio Neruda, Nueva Las Condes, 19 de noviembre de 2011

Tierra Pacífica” / Serie Los Andes: columna vertebral de América
Tinta Ultrachrome sobre tela (2.40 x 8.00 mt)

Estudio morfológico de la Cordillera de Los Andes donde se aprecia en su macizo central, el Cerro el Plomo y sus formaciones colindantes que circunscriben el valle de Santiago del Nuevo Extremo. Hacia el frente, se pueden apreciar formaciones rocosas que caracterizan el litoral central, propias de una geografía accidentada cuyas capas tectónicas son de origen volcánico. En el centro de ambas composiciones surgen ondulaciones con aguadas de Tusche (pigmento de alta densidad) que sugieren de manera inusitada el Océano Pacífico. Lo anterior nos hace reflexionar sobre la prehistoria geofísica de Chile, donde el valle central fue en algún momento parte del océano.

Pacific Land” / The Andes: Vertical Column of America Series
Ultrachrome ink on museum canvas (2.40 x 8.00mt)

The Andes Mountains morphological study where in its central view, El Plomo summit can be recognized and its surrounding mountain range encompassing the valley of Santiago del Nuevo Extremo. In the foreground, rock formations can be observed which identify Chilean central coast line inherent to dramatic landform whose tectonic layers are of volcanic origin. In the middle of both compositions, Tusche water washes undulations make reference to the Pacific Ocean. The previous is a reflection upon prehistoric Chilean geography, where at one point in time, the central valley was part of the ocean.

Tierra Volcánica” / Serie Los Andes: columna vertebral de América
Tinta Ultrachrome sobre tela (2.40 x 8.00 mt)   

Visión apologética del mundo Andino como una cultura volcánica. Si bien la actividad volcánica se extiende a lo largo de toda la Cordillera de Los Andes, la singularidad de Chile está en primer lugar por su número de volcanes, más de 2.900 de los cuales 80 de ellos están activos. Junto con lo anterior, el gran número de volcanes están ensimismados sobre un abismo que es el Océano Pacífico, cuya cuenca está prácticamente en su totalidad bañada por la corriente de Humboldt. Lo descrito hace que Chile tenga una temperatura específica baja en una cantidad extraordinaria de latitudes. Consecuentemente, es la razón principal de por qué nuestro país tiene uno de los mejores climas del mundo.

Although volcanic activity constitutes great part of The Andes mountain range, the particularity of Chile is in the first place, the number of volcanoes, more than 2.900 where 80 of them are currently active. Together with the above, a great number of volcanoes are absorbed by the Pacific Ocean Rim abyss, whose basin is practically in its totality washed by the Humboldt Current. The described, allows Chile a low specific temperature throughout an extraordinary amount of latitudes. Consequently, it’s the principal reason why the country has one of the best climates in the world.    



Vista Nueva Las Condes 

Los murales anteriormente descritos creados por el artista chileno, Alexander Sutulov, tienen como propósito introducir un nuevo concepto de instalaciones permanentes para espacios públicos tanto institucionales como corporativos. En el caso específico de Nueva Las Condes, el artista tiene un especial interés dado su unicidad como espacio urbano. En una publicación reciente en Visual Artbeat Magazine, una publicación especializada en arte en Salzburgo, Alexander Sutulov da cuenta sobre el futuro que le depara a la ciudad de Santiago como capital financiera en Latinoamérica y lo importante que resulta entender el posicionamiento de Chile frente el mundo. En este sentido, gran parte de su obra ha estado dedicada precisamente a la identidad de nuestro país y su implementación en espacios estratégicos. Frente lo anterior, el artista resume el complejo de edificios corporativos en Nueva Las Condes  como la respuesta más coherente al nuevo paradigma; lo cual invita y posibilita exhibir obras que no solamente hablan sobre nuestra identidad, sino además, se proyectan con fuerza hacia un futuro que singulariza a Chile como una estrella en el Hemisferio Sur.

The described murals created by Chilean Artist, Alexander Sutulov are part of a new concept of public permanent installations for corporate and institutional entities. In the specific case of Nueva Las Condes financial district, the artist has a special interest considering its urban planning uniqueness. At a recent art magazine publication in Salzburg, Visual Artbeat Magazine; Alexander Sutulov writes about the future of Santiago as a financial capital for Latin-America and the importance of understanding Chile’s positioning vis-à-vis the rest of the world. In this respect, great part of his work has been precisely dedicated to Chile’s identity and its implementation for strategic public spaces. All things considered, the artist resumes the business center building complex in Nueva Las Condes, as the new paradigm’s most coherent respond; which in return, invites and makes possible exhibiting artwork which not only speaks of our identity as a whole, but also, projects itself with a singularizing force where Chile emerges as a bright new star in the Southern Hemisphere.
