Skip the Beach for These Hamptons Summer Art Shows
June 13, 2022
Opening in August and remaining up through the close of summer 2022, Skarstedt’s East Hampton gallery will host a solo exhibition of work by German sculptor Stefan Rinck. This will be the first New York solo show for Rinck, who works primarily in stone and whose zoomorphic sculptures feel both humorous and archaeological, as if worthy of altar-like worship at times and
a good laugh at others.

Ethan Cook is a Texas-born, New York-based artist known for his minimalist works and woven art. The abstract woven pieces feature color block compositions in bold colorways on self-made canvases. The geometric “paintings” are made from sewn pieces of canvas that Cook has woven on a four-harness floor loom. Once the various pieces are sewn together, they make up the canvas that’s then stretched on bars for hanging. Shaking things up, Cook has recently translated his signature aesthetic to woven Flat Works rugs designed for HAY. Made of New Zealand wood and organic cotton, the throw rugs bring art directly to the floor in a more attainable way. In this Deconstruction, we head to Cook’s studio to get a better idea as to how and where he works, making these new rug designs and his regular work.

Cindy Phenix imagines new collectivities through collage.
May 13, 2022
Art21: Your paintings often start with a digital collage, what’s the process behind one of these paintings?
Cindy Phenix: I start by doing research and thinking about the general concept that I want to talk about in the painting, something happening in society. Then I have different scenes that I want to depict based on that idea. Once I’ve figured out the different scenes that I want to depict in a painting, I find pictures and images that fit these narratives. The majority of images I search for online, I also use images from reference books, and I walk around outside with my phone and take pictures. Then I make a collage in Photoshop and I project the collage on the canvas to make all the outlines. There could be 50 pictures in one collage. I’m taking different elements I like and finding a way that everything makes sense, or the perspectives connect. It’s really loose because I don’t have a specific line that I’m drawing, I’m following the shadow and the light from the collage. It’s very strange, but different shapes and lines just come together, to define and build something else.
MARFA INVITATIONAL 2022 HIGHLIGHTS
May 9, 2022
Now in its third edition, the Marfa Invitational art fair brings together galleries, artists, and collectors to the remote desert town of Marfa, Texas. Part of the Big Bend, Marfa was established in 1880 as a water railway stop, then as a border trading outpost, and eventually becoming a military base. In 1971, Donald Judd relocated his artistic practice from New York to Marfa, setting up his home and studio in the former military base. Subsequently, Marfa became a hub for minimalist art. Marfa Invitational presents a wide range of art from outsider and folk art to sculpture, public installations, performances and contemporary art.
'We've Seen a Huge Convergence'/ NADA New York Dealers Are Catering to Collectors Who Want Both NFTs
May 6, 2022
It’s hard to believe, but it’s only been just over a year since Beeple’s explosive sale at Sotheby’s changed the genetic makeup of the art market as knew it.
Over the course of that year, a split has emerged between those in the art world that embrace web3 with aplomb, and those that have been forced to make peace with its presence.
That tension was on full display at this year’s New Art Dealers Alliance fair in New York, its first in the city since 2018. Inside, digital art blended seamlessly with traditional art—which is quite a feat.
Andrea Joyce Heimer
Andrea Joyce Heimer presents 24 paintings representing each hour of the day she lost her virginity in new show 24 Hours in Great Falls, Montana at Nino Mier Gallery. Opening March 26th, the show follows that day in Heimer’s life through the lead up, through noon when the fateful event occurred, and finishing out the remainder of the disappointed hours. “I look back at that day and think that’s where the trouble began. Of course it’s not that simple, but those twenty-four hours were formative,” writes Heimer in her statement. “I still find myself downstairs when I should be up.”
24 Hours in Great Falls, Montana is open through April 9, 2022 at Nino Mier Gallery in Glassell Park.
