Ellen Altfest Ocula Conversation Ellen Altfest

The paintings of Ellen Altfest are ethereal in their detail. Fields of minutiae come together as pulsating images; small brushstrokes of oil paint accumulate over a series of months to single out seemingly innocuous subjects, such as a hand resting atop patterned fabric (The Hand, 2011) or a deep green cactus reaching upwards from beneath a bed of...

Colomboscope 2019: Cross Currents and Dissonance Ocula Report Colomboscope 2019: Cross Currents and Dissonance 8 Feb 2019 : Nada Raza for Ocula

On the rooftop of the former Rio Hotel complex in Colombo, it was hard to ignore the high-rise buildings, still under construction, blocking all but a sliver of what used to be an open view over Slave Island, once an island on Beira Lake that housed slaves in the 19th century, and now a downtown suburb.

Aaron Curry

b. 1972, USA

Aaron Curry is known for his brightly coloured sculptures and collages. He received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from The School of the Art Institute in Chicago in 2002 and later completed his Master of Fine Arts in 2005 at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena where he was taught by Mike Kelley and Jim Shaw. He lives and works in Los Angeles.

Curry’s sculptures are informed by figurative painting, graffiti, cubism, cartoons, and abstraction, and are made from found materials such as twine, cardboard, posters, beads, and wood. His fluorescent works, which the artist describes as paintings, are reminiscent of the modernist works of Alexander Calder and Henry Moore.

Aaron Curry’s work is held in many public collections including the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; the San Francisco Museum of Art; the Seattle Art Museum; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.

Finding The Desert In The Desert: The Los Angeles Project At Ucca, Beijing Ocula Report Finding The Desert In The Desert: The Los Angeles Project At Ucca, Beijing 30 Sep 2014 : Robin Peckham for Ocula

Ask a Beijing artist where they would like to spend time abroad living, working, seeing exhibitions, meeting artists and curators, and the answer is invariably New York. Aside from the obvious attractions, New York appears culturally exotic; there seems to be a consensus that Beijing, as an art center and urban environment, operates somehow more...
