Director of video programming and production Nick Ravich delivers a guest dispatch of Art21’s latest on-goings.
In a new film from our “New York Close Up” series, Maryam Hoseini explores the spaces in between painting and drawing, figuration and abstraction, and the personal experiences embedded in her work and the multiple interpretations viewers can bring to it.
“That’s what my work is about…seeing the facets of happiness and sadness all in one place.”
Raúl de Nieves
“The most toxic combination in the world is…the certainty of being right and a monopoly of power.”
“The most important part is the process. It is the actual living and doing and making.”
“Art isn’t a material, it’s not a medium—it’s not a certain product. It is the choices I’ve been able to make.”
“Drawing is like practicing the piano, because the first ones that I do often don’t come out so I have to practice.”
“Beauty is just kind of an accident. Beauty is just a happenstance. Beauty is the remainders of being a painter.”
