Porcelain sculpture and drawings by the Sweden based artist Klara Kristalova (b. 1967, Czechoslovakia) comprise the fourth RAW exhibition, a series dedicated to supporting women artists through the generosity of the Leonard and SophieDavis/ ML Dauray Arts Initiative. Hovering between fiction and reality, Kristalova gives form to abstract ideas evolving from memories and observations of the human condition. Her expressive characters are both seductive and disarming, reflecting the poignant and sometimes harsh events that make up our lives.

H as in heaven. H as in hell. H as in hurdles, hurdles to cross. H as in heart. H as in Helene. The letter h keeps following Helene Billgren and it is a signature that has sneaked into, as well as becoming a part of, her work. heart h allows the H to take place and like an arrow of love it pierces all the works in the exhibition. It comes from the heart and its sender is Helene Billgren.

Lora Reynolds is pleased to announce The Arrangement of Separate Elements, a project room exhibition of new paintings, watercolors, and drawings by Carl Hammoud. This is the artist’s second solo presentation at Lora Reynolds Gallery.
This body of work depicts objects most of us take for granted: books, clothing, a stack of hats, a pair of glasses. As with all of his work, Hammoud renders the imagery precisely and illusionistically, leaving little trace of his own hand in his trademark palette of cool blues and grays.
In the exhibition HERE/NOW, Artipelag would like to take a stand for the physical meeting between artwork and the viewer. The title of the exhibition refers to artist Barnett Newman’s praised 1948 essay, The Sublime is Now. In the essay, Newman propagates the idea that the meeting between contemplator and artwork should be like a meeting between two people, wherein the relationship is based on a profound dialogue.
