"Not From Here" reviewed on

Added on by ROSEGALLERY.

Our exhibition Not From Here was reviewed on!  Read below:


"Using the traditional medium of egg tempera, McCracken makes complex geometric abstract paintings. Hard-edged, luminous colour shapes and lines overlap, outline and crisscross the multi faceted colour field, creating new interwoven geometric spaces. Flowing painted lines, tracing pathways, travel across the painting, draw the viewers gaze around the panel. The viewer is encouraged to take time and traverse the unique pictorial universe existing within the edges of the panel. 


Working primarily with paper and card, pigment and linseed oil. Müller bends, scores, folds and teases the material into his distinctive three-dimensional forms in which both positive and negative spaces are at play with one another. Müller creates architectural / sculptural forms which although non-representational reference the body, wall based and tabletop pieces are domestic and human in scale. There is little ‘colour’ in these sun bleached pieces, subtle variations in tones of ivory and white, allow light to play an important role in defining the forms. The tactile surfaces and haptic nature of these organic/architectural shapes are at once familiar and strange, making one think of a pale skin drawn tight, wrapping space. Their textures and scored lines remind the viewer of industrial design and manufacturing techniques that are then confounded by the artists choice of material – humble paper, elegantly elevated to the status of carved marble. 

With his minimalist, architectural sculptures, Müller bridges the experience of the eye with the body. He merges the environment and surroundings into his work, creating an installation that engages the viewer through thoughtful placement and a deep understanding of light, space and tactility."

The Ceremony of Life by Martin Parr on view at The Photographers' Gallery in London

Added on by ROSEGALLERY.

Martin Parr, Glenbeigh Races, County Kerry, Ireland, 1983

The Ceremony of Life is an upcoming exhibition of rarely seen black and white prints from world-renowned British photographer, Martin Parr, best known for his acerbic, bold, colour portraits charting the customs and peculiarities of British culture with wry wit and trademark unflinching gaze.

These early works – taken in the 1970s and early 1980s – reveal a gentler, less critical lens, unearthing a young photographer with superlative observational skills, passionate about capturing the unsung rituals of everyday life.

10 things you should know about Rinko Kawauchi - Culture Trip

Added on by ROSEGALLERY.

Rinko Kawauchi, proclaimed first lady of Japanese photography, is discussed on Culture Trip by Lucia Andia.


Of the ten things mentioned, Rinko builds on narratives, "I want imagination in the photographs I take. It’s like a prologue.".  In each narrative she sees the light and the dark, the balance of dualities.  Her series Light & Shadow from 2011 illustrates the concept perfectly.

While photographing the most ordinary of subjects from sandwiches to spider webs, they serve Rinko as a visual diary, or visual haikus.  Photographing for her is instinctual, but also inspired by her subconscious.  Dreams influenced Rinko to create her series Ametsuchi, which translates to 'songs of the universe'.  And notably, Rinko's camera of choice is a Roliflex, the same camera used by aclaimed Irving Penn.

“Because the system’s so biased and so restrictive, so much wonderful art has [gone] completely unnoticed.” With these words, Cecilia Fajardo-Hill succinctly described the impetus for an upcoming exhibition – Radical Women: Latin American Art, 1960-1985 – at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles. The last few decades has seen progress for female artists, but the art world hasn’t reached parity, with men still basking in the limelight far more often than women.

As LA Weekly notes, the Guggenheim dedicated 86 percent of solo shows to men in 2014. And between 2007 to 2014, the Tate Modern in London only featured female artists’ works in solo exhibitions a quarter of the time. Radical Women – which Fajardo-Hill and Andrea Giunta curated together – exclusively focuses on Latinas and Latin American women who US museums don’t typically feature. “The reason for this is not a question of talent, but of a patriarchal matrix placed on the history of Latin American and Latina art,” Fajardo-Hill tells LA Weekly. “In other words, the system was even more biased than we knew it to be.”

In 2010, When they began looking into this topic, the curators found themselves having to defend the need for an exhibit that closely looks at Latin American and Latina art. Detractors told them that only a select number of women were worth highlight. But they refused to buy into this misguided notion, finding instead, that these women’s stories are necessary to tell.

“We are looking at a lot of women that have been completely overlooked,” Fajardo-Hill told the Los Angeles Times. “These are women that have shaped how we understand contemporary art today, how we use our bodies, how we can think about our bodies at a conceptual level.”

W. M. Hunt review Classic Photographs LA - The Eye of Photography

Added on by ROSEGALLERY.

"Classic Photographs Los Angeles is the comfort food of photography fairs: warm and satisfying, a kinder, gentler throwback to the hotel fairs of the early 1980’s." He had a yummy time.

Of the photography dealers, booth layouts and prints mentioned, Hunt took notice to the color works on display in our booth.  "Surprising and unsurprising" were both the works of Jo Ann Callis and Graciela Iturbide.  Iturbide was invited to photograph Frida Kahlo's bathroom 50 years after her death.  The portfolio of 6 works in full technicolor are exquisite dye transfer prints.  Jo Ann Callis's vintage silver gelatin prints accompanied Iturbide, and Wendt.  Lionel Wendt was a Ceylon born musician, writer, critic, lawyer and photographer in the 1930s until his death in 1944.  He was a founder and member of the 43 Group, a salon style society of artists in Sri Lanka, whose creative efforts lead to great international success.

Jo Ann Callis,  Woman With Blonde Hair,  1977

Jo Ann Callis, Woman With Blonde Hair, 1977

From the collection of Gloria Katz and Willard Huyck

Woman With Blonde Hair is from a series of elegant and often enigmatic images from 1976 to 1977 that preceded the last 30 years of fictional narrative in photography. Referencing film noir, Paul Outerbridge, and the eroticism of fashion photographer Guy Bourdin, it creates a highly charged domestic tableau that exists out of any context and without any clear resolution, but is instead highly suggestive—the fetishistic overtones giving the scenario both pleasure and anxiety.  As a cibachrome print, its lush coloration has a slightly metallic tone, only increasing its sense of menace and style.
