The Dark, Iconic Anatomy of Dino Valls

Erotica // Monday, February 09, 2015
Dino Valls is a Spanish painter born in 1959 in Zaragoza. Since 1988, he has lived and worked in Madrid. Building on a childhood passion for drawing, Valls taught himself to paint in oils beginning in 1975.

Stability by Timofey Radya

Juxtapoz // Monday, February 09, 2015
Stuck in the countryside of a cold Russian wilderness, a symbol of isolated/invisible power and stature, Timofey Radya is the creator of Figure #1: Stability. As Radya notes in his own description of the piece, "After the formation officers may leave the area." From what we gather, and from Radya's video, the piece is a construction of lonely power, a sort of comedic tragedy of how power is constructed when nobody is paying attention. Love the red carpet treatment.

The Lust and Indulgence of Terry Rodgers

Erotica // Monday, February 09, 2015
'In my work, I attempt to reflect my sense of the times we are living in, and both how richly interesting they are and how difficult it is for most of us to navigate their uncharted waters. There is a great push and pull, the lure and the repulsion, the fiction and the real, the known and the unknown. And we live in this swirl of delicate gestures, driving desires, fantasy, economic complexity and interdependence, hierarchical separations, isolation and hope...'
