PICTURE BERLIN

PICTURE BERLIN, founded in 2009, is a nonprofit artist initiated hybrid residency/art academy which encourages participating artists to engage in an active discourse surrounding art and contemporary photography while simultaneously giving them a chance to develop their work. This perspective is unusual within a European residency context as the program facilitates each individual approach by offering close mentoring from internationally practicing artists and free-lance curators based in Berlin. Next summer, 2013, will mark the fourth Summer Session. PICTURE BERLIN is a 5 week program. Continue Reading →

“My paintings express my personal and cultural histories. Having grown up on the island of Taiwan, I have a deep affinity for the elemental power of water and the forces of nature. Now living in America, I feel the ebb and flow of competing cultures. The ancient philosophies of my homeland, which teach self-discipline and selflessness, collide and mingle with Western notions of ego, alienation, and desire. Continue Reading →

Max Ferguson | Painting My Father

Moses is described in the Torah as the most modest man who ever lived. My father was the second most. He thought of himself, and wanted others to think of him, as simply ordinary. Perhaps that inspired me to often depict him as Everyman.” — Max Ferguson

These paintings will be part of a Max Ferguson’s 13th solo exhibition, Painting My Father, at the Hebrew Union College Museum in Greenwich Village, One West 4th Street, NYC from April 16 – June 29, 2012. Continue Reading →
