au Gugenheim..a lire sur French Morning News et aussi toujours au Guggenheim only a few days left to see Anish Kapoor

La rétrospective new-yorkaise de Kazimir Malevitch surprend par sa sobriété. Six tableaux de l’icône suprématiste russe recouvrent les murs de la petite salle du Guggenheim. L’intérêt de l’exposition n’est certainement pas dans la profusion d’oeuvres présentées, mais dans le caractère inédit de l’évènement : voilà 83 ans que ces tableaux n’ont pas été réunis.

On view Upper East Gallery Manhattan: Milton Avery % KNOEDLER: "Industrial Revelations" until may 1st

Studio View (Chop Suey), ca. 1930s
Watercolor on paper, 22 1/8 x 15 1/4 inches

A close look at the little-known early works presented in Milton Avery: Industrial Revelations makes evident for the first time that Avery was an attentive observer of the immense technological changes that were taking place in the American economy and in society from the mid-1920s to the mid-1930s. Although Avery did occasionally exhibit some of this output, scholars and critics have tended to overlook this thread in his work, in favor of themes of leisure, nature, and the figure that anticipate his later development. Since Avery’s industrial images remained little known, they are absent from major studies of America and the machine age, the term often used to characterize the period between the two world wars. —Gail Levin (2010)

Knoedler & Company is pleased to present,.............

ODON: FIAF presents an exhibition reflecting the art world’s new interest in paper as ........
FIAF presents an exhibition reflecting the art world’s new interest in paper as a creative medium. Acclaimed French artist Odon’s thrilling, luminous spiral paper works employ this traditional material in a revolutionary and beautiful way.

Early in his career, Odon’s intensely personal and mysterious images were inspired by the Cobra movement (Copenhagen, Brussels, Amsterdam), a group of expressionist painters interested in freedom of color and form. In the 1970s Odon began experimenting with the inclusion of cut and woven modifications on the surfaces of his paintings. By the late 1970s this had evolved into an increasingly complex process of cutting, shredding, and braiding paper, painted by him on both sides, into never-ending, sunburst-like forms that he calls mandalas. The ancient form of the mandala, meaning circle in Sanskrit, is a common symbol of sacred power in many cultures, representing a cosmic diagram viewed from the human perspective.

Odon’s works are dream-like meditations on the order of the world. The artist works slowly, weaving the flat, meticulously painted paper into magical endless webs. Through these circular sculptures, Odon presents the infinite in finite form and alludes to the natural energy and tension of circular motion. The resulting works are both spectacular and thought provoking.

de retour apres une terrible tempete" Rain and Wind Created a Deadly Storm"

On the wall of a windowless auditorium in Manhattan, color-coded maps of the New York region filled two large screens, showing the Consolidated Edison customers who did not have electricity.

Ángel Franco/The New York Times
A vicious weekend storm tore through the metropolitan area, Dozens of tables, their surfaces covered by laptops and telephones, filled the room. The phones rang constantly, as if in a telethon. Information came from crews in the field on how quickly they were fixing downed lines. Every few hours, a staff meteorologist provided the latest forecast, and company officials updated each other on the number of hospitals, schools and nursing homes that were without power.

As the worst of the weekend storm passed through the area, Con Ed activated its emergency response center on the 19th floor of its headquarters on Irving Place. In the last three years, it had been used just twice: during a heat wave in 2008 and when a steam pipe exploded in Midtown the year before.

But Con Ed officials said neither of those emergencies compared to this storm, which they said was the worst in 30 years.

“We had in-house forecasts that something was going to converge with winds and rain, but we didn’t think it would be this much,” said John Miksad, who leads the response center. “On Saturday we staffed up, and I spent the day monitoring it, and the customer count kept going further and further. I had them check to make sure the numbers were right, they were so high.”

For most people in the New York metropolitan area, the storm’s damage was evident in the tangled branches, uprooted trees, homes without lights and towns evacuated as swollen rivers rose. But for Con Ed officials, the impact was told through numbers, as they watched the ticker of homes without power rise over the weekend.

With branches still lying on power lines and fallen trees littering thousands of area roads, about 200,000 customers were still without power on Monday in the metropolitan area.

Con Edison estimated that 55,000 customers had no power in Westchester ...........

On view @ Larchmont Library as published on


Cleopatra and Evil Queen Go Sledding in Larchmont
Sleds painted with the faces of infamous women characters and photos of gazebos are now on view at the public library.

The Evil Queen Credit Keith Loria

on working on specific themes, and two interesting ones decorate the walls of the Oresman Gallery at the Larchmont Public Library for the month of March.
On one wall hangs the exhibit "Heads on Sleds," consisting of a dozen snow-wing sleds painted with the faces of infamous women characters, such as the Evil Queen from Snow White and Cleopatra.
"I was walking around my neighborhood one day and there was a sled thrown on someone's lawn, and because I paint surfaces, I thought it was a really unique potential for something, so I bought it and it sat in my studio for two years," says artist Ann Ladd Ferencz. "One day I turned around and realized it was the perfect shape of Miss Clavel from the book 'Madeline.' It was the middle of the night, so I put on the light and painted it."
When Ferencz included the sled as part of an exhibition of her work, the response was incredible, and she realized she had to do more.
"A friend of mine dropped off another sled she had and I did Cleopatra, and then I went on E-bay and purchased more of them," she says. "It turned out to be a women's series and I included a praying mantis, which is the ultimate female."
The library showcase is the first time the sleds have been shown together, and to finish off her last sled, Ferencz painted her self-portrait. The funny thing about this work is that Ferencz specializes in painting murals, so the smaller sleds seems to be way out of her element.
"The hardest thing about being a mural artist is getting some blank walls so you can show your artwork," Ferencz says. "I can just somehow walk up to a wall, see it, and my brush just sort of takes me there. I don't like painting small. I paint very fast and I like transforming large walls in fun, humorous ways."
A second artist on display this month is photographer H. David Stein, who is hanging a series of gazebos from around Larchmont.
Stein, too, is a bit out of his element with the show's collection, as he normally photographs nature and macro landscapes, focusing on really close-up images.
"Since I have been in Larchmont, it always occurred to me that people want pictures of the gazebos," explains Stein about what inspired the series. "If people come here and stay for a couple of years, they always want a picture of Larchmont to take home with them and they always want a gazebo. They typify Larchmont."
Stein began taking photos of all he could find, snapping shots across from the library, of those lined up waiting to take wedding photos in Manor Park and even a few he discovered at private homes.
"I went around taking photos of the gazebos at different times of the year and different times of the day," he says. "I wound up with 12 different gazebos." In addition to the pictures in the show, Stein made a commercially produced poster of the images, which is available for $20.
A retired surgeon, Stein says his photography started as a hobby, but got out of hand, for the better. He hopes to continue exhibiting his work.
Both artists will be on display for the entire month of March.
