A Timeless Snapshot: Michal Zaborowski

“…a romantic impressionist with a contemporary voice.”

I now work for the Nevin Kelly Gallery here off U Street in Washington DC. Our current exhibition is a show entitled H2O by Polish contemporary artist Michal Zaborowski, which opened on October 11, 2007 and will be on view until November 11, 2007. I was going to do an exhibition review, but have volunteered my art criticism services to our official gallery blog which can be found by clicking here. I am responsible for the weekly artist features on NKG’s blog. Pop on over there and stay tuned for more of my muses on this exhibition… and, enjoy!


IAM, therefore I create.

IAM has finally moved to their new, physical, studio space on W. 59th Street in the heart of mid-town Manhattan. IAM gathers artists and creative catalysts to wrestle with the deep questions of art, faith and humanity in order to inspire the community to engage the culture that is and create the world that ought to be.

Art has been and will continue to be society’s existential statement, by answering the question, “Why live?” International Arts Movement works as a catalyst in the NYC area and worldwide to inspire people to hope, to engage deeply into the depth of culture, with the hopes of creating a world that ought to be. After all, in order for artistic excellence to pave the way for lasting, enduring humanity, this is what we “ought to be”.

IAM founder and prominent artist Makoto Fujimura’s art is described by art critic Robert Kushner as, “The idea of forging a new kind of art, about hope, healing, redemption, refuge, while maintaining visual sophistication and intellectual integrity is a growing movement, one which finds Fujimura’s work at the vanguard.” International Arts Movement is an outgrowth of this “forging”, and desires to collaborate with other influences from all walks of life, empowering their work and growth.

China Square

“She & I: Sculpture of Xiang Jing and Guangci”, curated by Gao Shiming and Lilly Wei. On view from Sept. 7th through Nov. 15th, the life-sized sculptures explore and narrate Chinese cultural discourse, with an emphasis on the post-feminism era. Both Xiang Jing’s and Guangci’s work, made of industrial strength synthetic materials, investigate the social and political changes surrounding China. A must see for anyone browsing the Chelsea galleries this fall…

innocent fear?
