BRUSSELS.- This is not an article. It’s a fish in the shape of a piano, floating in a clear blue sky, seen through a keyhole. Surrealism, the art movement that gave us disembodied eyeballs, melting clocks and animals with mismatched parts, was born in 1924 when French poet André Breton published a treatise decrying the vogue for realism and rationality. Breton argued instead for embracing the “omnipotence of dreams” and exploring the unconscious and all that was “marvelous” in life. Art that could reach beyond the rational could liberate humanity, he felt. “The mere word ‘freedom’ is the only one that still excites me,” Breton wrote in his “Surrealist Manifesto.” It was a literary idea that became an art movement and revolutionized nearly all forms of cultural production. It’s now commonplace to call pretty much any weird experience “surreal.” A century later, what does surrealism still have to offer us? Do its philosophical an ... More

'Sagebrush and Solitude' exhibition showcases rare Maynard Dixon paintings
RENO, NV.- Sagebrush and Solitude: Maynard Dixon in Nevada, which is now on display at the Nevada Museum of Art March 2 – July 28, 2024, is the first comprehensive exhibition to document Dixon’s early wanderings and extended visits to Nevada and the Eastern Sierra. From 1901 to 1939, Dixon made several trips from his California home to paint and sketch the striking landscapes of the Great Basin and Sierra Nevada region. Among his favorite subjects to paint were old homesteads, wild horses and stands of cottonwood trees—images that conjure memories of a romanticized bygone era before modernization brought change to many of Nevada’s open and pristine landscapes. The exhibition features nearly 150 of Dixon’s paintings of Nevada and the Eastern Sierra, many of them rarely or ever seen before. From his first Nevada sketching ... More

Wilding Cran Gallery is pleased to announce the representation of Miya Ando
LOS ANGELES, CA.- Wilding Cran Gallery has announced their representation of Miya Ando. In an effort to bring attention to the physical manifestation of time, transition, and the cycles of life, Miya Ando grounds her sculptures, paintings, and installations in the phenomena of the natural world, locating harmony in the gaps between the material and ephemeral, the manmade and organic, the cultures of East and West. Inspired by her deep fascination with arcane Japanese literature, idiom, and philosophy, Miya Ando views her artistic practice as a language that unites spheres of influence, a bridge between her experience growing up in both Northern California and Japan. "There is a poetry to our communion with nature. Whether a leaf, a cloud, a shooting star, we all have a part in this fleeting existence. Through my work, I look for ways to capture ... More
