DANIEL G. HILL develops a sensitive geometry. He chooses fragile materials that he weaves, knots, suspends, sometimes playing with the influence of gravity, which he uses to his advantage. A keen observer, he seizes the moment and the detail to create work of unusual and poetic balance.
JOCELYNE SANTOS is a color magician. As much in her paintings as in her sculptures, contrasting tones are juxtaposed with harmony, giving birth to unexpected chromatic variations. We never complete our discovery of her palette. New nuances invite surprise, illusions dazzle our eyes, and that which is hidden in the work ends up being its main concern.
SHAWN STIPLING works with perception. Space is always present, suggested by clever crossings and misleading offsets that generate new virtual planes. The simplicity of his line is only an appearance: executed by hand, it still takes on a deliberately mechanical look. Confiding to us, the thin edges of his works retain trac…

Girls Only: India

Above image and background: Shreya Dev Dube.

Girls Only is thrilled to announce an exhibition celebrating the work of 15 contemporary female artists working in India. Spanning photography, performance, installation, sculpture, film, video, written word, textiles, drawing and painting, this exhibition seeks to demonstrate the staggering capacity that, while considerably and comparably underrepresented, young women remain at the forefront of radical art practice in India today.

Beginning as a studio residency program in New York, with five consecutive shows in London as well as an experimental exhibition/installation in Copenhagen, Girls Only has been supporting, celebrating and promoting the work of young female artists since its inception in 2014. Girls Only locates its genesis in the imbalance of representation of women in exhibitions and galleries, however resists reduction to a reactionist statement that could potentially reaffirm or reposition the binary between sexes in the arts.

London pt. 2: Studio Visits with Robin Greenwood and Karl Bielik

Recently I visited the studios of two of my favorite artists working in London today.

Robin Greenwood is a sculptor, a co-founder of the seminal Abstract Critical and the founder and editor of it's follow up site Abcrit. In addition, Greenwood was the founder and director of Poussin Gallery and as such provided a showcase for some of most revered painters and sculptors in the U.K.

I have known Robin through social media for the last few years and have come to rely on and admire his, clear and uncompromising take on abstraction and the artists who make it both in the U.K. and abroad.

This visit was the first time we met in person and I appreciate the time spent in conversation in Greenwood's studio and in viewing a bit of his personal art collection.

Greenwood's work is hard to pin down. There is structure and strength, movement and air - minute…
