Caravaggio, The Inspiration of Saint Matthew, 1602. Oil on canvas, 292 x 186 cm. San Luigi dei Francesi, Rome (link) This painting is the second version of two completed for the Contarelli Chapel in Rome. While the original was deemed inappropriate by its patron, French Cardinal Matteo Contarelli, this one was well received and hangs in the chapel to this day. Aside from being a much more visually appealing composition as a whole, the Saint Matthew in this version seems to have more control ove...

Cage’s prints and drawings, begun in 1983, required him to draw (first with a metal drypoint tool, later in pencil) around the perimeters of 15 stones whose po...

Jesse Treece intrigues us all once again! Titled “The city’s been dead (since you’ve been gone),” the collage depicts a reversed scene of soaring cars (neon-like streaks) almost appearing to be engulfing a “city” of both rural and urban structures. By juxtaposing two contrastingly different styles of living, perhaps Treece responds to the inevitable nature of time. That’s my opinion. What do you think? Be sure to check out more of Jesse Treece’s wo...

“Single Occupancy”, a performance work by Open Sessions artists Lauren Bakst and Yuri Masnyj involves a body, a monitor, and a stack of objects. These materials create the conditions for the construction of landscape and portraiture, using absence and abstraction to establish the presence of the figure. In “Single Occupancy”, the image functions as a recording and a disappearance—the performance, a practice in the sensation of artifice. TONIGHT/FREE: Thursday, August 13 at 7pm Thursday, August 2...
