ABOUT DIVERSITY IN ART INDUSTRY

“The more diversity you have, the faster you are able to get the right answer…” – Kerry McCarthy. When I read interviews with people like Thelma Golden, I am not afraid to achieve new goals. As someone from the far country, I am responsive to the diversity in my industry. For all the time I am looking for ways to work in a foreign land with native and multicultural people. I became more loyal, more tolerant and more open-minded for last five years for the laborious time I moved and studied a new language. Thelma’s bio shows that we can…

“Observatory of Light” FOR LOUIS VUITTON

This spectacular glass-colored structure named “Observatory of Light” is designed by the French artist Daniel Buren.

Collecting digital art

This winter I focused on digital installations. So, during Art Basel week in Miami, I had explored contemporary shows to find a digital art. Not too many Artists are performing with video art in the US yet. The cost of the disk with digital composition (screen not included) was around 10 – 15K. After a purchasing, I just have to find safe clouds to maintain my file, what is cheaper than storage for paintings with all additional expenses, and enjoying my art whenever I want. Apparently, It takes time when we switch our minds to the way of digital collecting….

BEST WAY TO APPROACH A GALLERY

For me, one of the most intriguing moments for the contemporary art, that this is a human way of speaking about our transformations. From the personal prospectives to the outside world we are studying identities in action through the different art technics. I see art as a dominant element which contains a range of conceptual meanings and theoretical roles associated with it. If you think that your work has a strong manifestation and deserves the personal attention of the gallery, you shouldn’t wait with submission. Check out galleries that you think may like your work.

WHAT TO COLLECT #6

Carlos Cruz-Diez The Franco-Venezuelan artist Carlos Cruz-Diez (Caracas, 1923) has lived and worked in Paris since 1960. He is a major protagonist in the field of Kinetic and Optical art, a movement that encourages “an awareness of the instability of reality.” His body of work has established him as one of the key twentieth-century thinkers in the realm of color. Carlos Cruz-Diez’s visual art explores the perception of color as an autonomous reality evolving in space and time, unaided by form or support, in a perpetual present.
