Rajab Ali Sayed Mural in West Hollywood

This artwork is a digital reproduction of an original painting that was part of the artist’s MFA Thesis Show at The Blaffer Art Museum, Houston, TX, 2017. Partition was also curated by Toby Kamps into the 2017 iteration of The Big Show, an annual survey of Texas-based artists organized by the Lawndale Art Center, Houston, TX. The painting is a portrait of Michael in his boudoir applying drag make-up to half of his face in homage to the 1982 film, Victor Victoria. The title of the painting alludes to several ideas; the pictorial bifurcation that occurs on the surface of the painting, the parting of gender constructs that occurs within drag culture; the division of post-colonial India in to two separate states of India and Pakistan in 1947; and the 2014 Beyoncé song that played when the artist witnessed Michael’s transformation.

Cruz Ortiz Exhibits at Blue Star Contemporary

Given that it’s as old as the hills, including the ones in ancient Egypt, portraiture might not seem like an apt vehicle to convey contemporary ideas. But the age-old tradition has evolved continuously — eschewing self-aggrandizing displays of power, wealth and beauty to become a wildly adaptable storytelling device.

Dasha Shishkin at Neues Museum Nuernberg

Dasha Shishkin makes drawings whose disturbing visual world captivates the viewer. In her phantasmagorias, the all-too-human blossoms in bizarre ways, exuding a morbid perfume. Shishkin’s figures are sexually ambiguous, graceful and gentle, but also cruel. Their actions seem to be guided by secret obsessions and the logic of nightmares.
