Allegory from the St. Louis Art Museum

Also, the most interesting show in the area right now is the KC Flatfiles at H & R Block Artspace in Kansas City.  Over 150 Kansas City based artists submitted flat works–photos, prints, collages and drawings–that are placed in folders in the flat files.  Visitors don white gloves and flip through whatever they may choose.  On my visit, I took a peek at some drawings by Peregrine Honig, Emily Sall, Beniah Leuschke; prints by Wilbur Niewald and Archie Scott Gobber, and others.

The gallery walls in the front room are covered with flat works, pinned to the walls.  Each of the four walls is curated by a local artist.  The KC-based writers of the blog Art Motel Radio wrote about the work they chose for their wall.  Additionally, in the back room, there is a wall lined with DVDs by local video artists, and two televisions for watching.

Dana Schutz interview at Artkrush.: “Painting is a really strange and sometimes funny activity. You spend so many hours alone, standing in front of a canvas and trying to depict something that doesn’t yet exist but will, for better or for worse, when you’re done. It can be embarrassing, romantic, harrowing, and totally absurd.”

From the The St Louis Art Museum‘s website:

Freund Fellow Sarah Oppenheimer (American, born 1972) is engaged in studies involving the reconfiguration of the built environment. In past work, she has explored the social navigation of architectural surroundings, as demonstrated in a recent project exploring subway commuters’ newspaper folding habits. Oppenheimer will develop the content of Currents 102 during a month-long St. Louis residency in the fall of 2007.

Nathan Boyer’s videos were a popular post last month (go here to check them out).  Here, now, are three of his paintings.  The first two are from a body of work that made use of handmade clay figures, strong lighting and sharp perspectives for a cinematic effect.  The last painting is the most recent; still based on models–though now they’re largely computer generated.

Also, while we’re on the subject of dramatic perspective and slightly tilting horizon lines:  there’s a review of the latest Stanley Lewis exhibit at Artcritical.

Also, it looks like a couple of artists we’ve featured in the past have brand new websites.  Jennifer Meanley’s would be found here and Emily Sall’s here.  Go look!
