Donald Lipski

Book Works 1982-1997 Installation view Lipski is a master manipulator of the found object, salvaging and ingeniously re-working them.

Lipski believes that art can be made with anything, and he proves it. Behind the…

Tristan Tzara

Philosophy is the question: from which side shall we look at life, God, the idea, or other phenomena. Everything one looks at is false.

Francis Bacon works from the estate “In the complicated stage in which painting is now, the moment there are several figures – at any rate several figures on the same canvas – the story begins to be elaborated. And the moment the story is elaborated, the boredom sets in; the story talks louder than the…

Shahzia Sikander

Shahzia Sikander has embraced the tradition of miniature painting from her native Pakistan. She is pioneering a revival of the form by combining the traditional motifs and techniques with her own personal visions, politics, and sexuality. The resulting hybrid uses as its main formal device a version of the Surrealist’s collage/juxtaposition principal, while her concerns…

La Rochefoucauld
