Starbuck's Mona Lisas

At the 3409 West Bay-to-Bay Starbuck's in Tampa, I ran across this giggle of Mona Lisas tucked in a corner by the bathrooms. The work was done by Elementary school children.

NSFW - (Implicit and) Explicit Content @ Mindy Solomon Gallery

Papered Mindy Solomon Gallery windows.
[WARNING: Not Safe For Work. If you are under 18, please skip this review unless your parents read it and agree to let you do the same.]

 It's that time: The windows are once again covered at Mindy Solomon gallery. This time with paper, though the door is covered with bubble wrap, nostalgically hailing back to another sex-centered show [Link]. That time the window covers went up after the show was up. This time before. No one under 18 will be admitted to this show without a parent. The exploration of our views on sexuality through the work shown is not so much taboo-busting per se as it is about questioning our comfort zones.

Work by Leopold L. Foulem

 Some of the work in this show is subtle. In another context, its sexual content might remain unnoticed by an inattentive viewer. Leopold L. Foulem's famille verte (porcelain decorated in green) container is an extraordinarily beautiful decorative object. At first, its craft qualities and intricate and attractive complex floral designs overwhelm. Then one notices the two small, almost discrete and elegant figures in a sexual position on the long side. The unexpected tension between form and content in this porcelain is conceptually subversive and plays with the viewers' expectations.


Christina West has several sculptures in the show, all about .7X life size. This one, "After Bernini", is based on Gian Lorenzo Bernini's "The Ecstasy of St. Theresa", the central piece in a sculptural group in the Comaro Chapel of Santa Maria della Vittoria in Rome. The original depicts an ecstatic and sexually charged vision of St. Theresa, involving an angel, which she described thusly:

Christina West, "After Bernini"
"I saw in his hand a long spear of gold, and at the iron's point there seemed to be a little fire. He appeared to me to be thrusting it at times into my heart, and to pierce my very entrails; when he drew it out, he seemed to draw them out also, and to leave me all on fire with a great love of God. The pain was so great, that it made me moan; and yet so surpassing was the sweetness of this excessive pain, that I could not wish to be rid of it. The soul is satisfied now with nothing less than God. The pain is not bodily, but spiritual; though the body has its share in it. It is a caressing of love so sweet which now takes place between the soul and God, that I pray God of His goodness to make him experience it who may think that I am lying."

Bernini sculpted St. Theresa covered in the usual saintly garb. Ms. West takes us below the garments and the religious veneer. She reveals her version of the inner view and allows us voyeurs to stare at the writhing figure. In this version, the angel's "long spear", which is an arrow held by an angel/Cupid in Bernini, has become a bright red dildo, and the angel is nowhere to be seen. The sculpture is in white silicone, which has the feel of flesh, and retains the spiritual purity of the experience. The sacred and the profane aspects of sex and viewer/voyeur fuse in this sculpture.

Bart Johnson, "Hell Screen I"

Bart Johnson has several pen-and-inks in this show, about his visits to the demimonde of strip joints. They are like a blend of some of Hieronymous Bosch's paintings [Link] with some of Reginald Marsh's depictions of the lower strata of NYC life [Link]. Here are the messy, organic interface, the tensions, negotiations, identities, commodification and consumption of sex in all their tawdry splendor. In spite of their grotesquerie and satire, there's compassion about the people and situations they inhabit.

Bonnie Marie Smith, "Consort"
Bonnie Marie Smith, "Angel"
The small sculptures of Bonnie Marie Smith are highly individuated figures, with Victorian overtones, rich with the tension between that, sensuousness and sex. Most are missing arms, some arms and legs, perhaps an allusion to the immobilizing trappings of the age.

One of the curatorial highlights of this show is the inclusion and juxtaposition of Scot Sothern, Becky Flanders and Barbara De Genevieve's photography. Sothern photographs prostitutes in hotels that charge by the hour and elsewhere, Becky photographed herself, and De Genevieve, in this particular project, panhandlers in regular hotel rooms in Chicago.

Scot Southern, "Jane"
Scot Sothern's working method is immersive. In spite of the obvious differences in gender, economics, and being behind the camera, Sothern feels at one with his subjects and has consorted and drugged with them. In person, as with his photos and writing, Scot is like a character that walked out of a noir novel set in L.A. He is an heir to a tradition of two photographers in his family.This project took over a decade. Most of it working with minimal self-funding and in solitary obscurity. Street-wise as they come, Sothern is also knowledgeable about photography and his place in it. He told me he is influenced by Mortensen. The style is classic documentary, the portraits environmental, with subtle symbology and commonalities with Brassai, Bellocq, and others in the genre. He sounds sad when talking about his subjects and I felt for them as indiviuals, not a generic class. [In the picture above, those highlights are reflections I could not get rid of]. He writes as well as he photographs. Here's a link [Link].

Becky Flanders, "Daily Meditation #5"
Becky Flanders mentioned that her photographs in the show were based on a myth about a divine character who spoke from her genitals. Ms. Flanders arrived like an asteroid on the local arts scene about two years ago, with self-portraits made while urinating standing up, her genitalia prominently displayed. In this show they are even more so, though  not in a clinical manner, but very specifically and formally posed. This work turns what is commonly referred to as "the privates" public. Barely visible is a marble-like object peeping between the labia in the picture. The effect is that of something staring back, a mirror gaze. Note the lighting, which seems like something out of a strip club.

Barbara De Genevieve has been working with sexual imagery for over a quarter-century. She is an academician, presently the Chair of the Photography Dept. at The School of the Art Institute in Chicago, but has no problem working on both sides of that fence. She said she has made porn since 1994, but qualifies that by adding she is using the word because the work will be called that anyway. The best defense...and De Genevieve is practiced in these arguments. There's a crusading attitude and more than a hint of zealotry about railing against culturally imposed limits, anything that jeopardizes freedom of speech, and a commitment to outing our anxieties. It has cost her an NEA grant, which only strengthened her resolve. It is difficult to pin down her ideas because she is more about expanding the discourse. She speaks with a vivacious, veteran reformer's mantle of authority.

Barbara De Genevieve, from the "Panhandler Project", #6
In this show, among other works, she brought four prints from her "Panhandlers" series, in which she met with Chicago black male panhnadlers, offered them $100.00 USD, lunch, dinner, a new change of clothes, a hotel room for the night, and a breakfast the next morning in exchange for photographing them nude (and making a video of the shoot). The result is an interesting set of pictures. De Genevieve trips multiple taboos and themes in this series. Things like exploitation of a minority (blacks) and majority (males), references to the cliche'd female nudes in art, power, class, and more. This is calculated to induce multiple stratified responses in viewers and perhaps an awareness of and exploration of the resulting hierarchy. The men look surprisingly submissive, eager to please, coy, compliant and innocent. Were they flirting? The video shown seems a little surreal. To see more work and videos see here: [Link].

 The artists during the Sunday panel discussion, left to right, Barbara De Genevieve, Scot Sothern, Becky Flanders and Christina West.

Congratulations to Mindy Solomon and her staff for a beautifully curated, thought-provoking show.

"Abstract Explorations", Kas Turner @ Art Lofts

Abstraction entered the current era early in the 1900's with Fauvism, kept going in different forms through the 1930's, then subsided until the 1940's and remained strong through the 1950's during the Abstract Expressionist era. It has enjoyed a resurgence in the first decade of the 21st century.

Art Lofts Gallery
Abstraction is not always an absolute thing. As with Cubism, it can have recognizable figurative elements. In the show being reviewed, this is the case with several of the works. Kas Turner apparently works in a style derived from the age of Modernism and developed over time. On her web site she says she is painting a "contemporary vision of time and place" and that the interaction of color (which happens to be the title of one of the best books ever written about color) plays a major part. And it does, in beautifully modulated hues and tones.  

Kas Turner, "Radiant Summer"

  Radiant Summer, is an abstracted landscape, possibly at sunset. There are abstract, geometric, colored forms cutting into the orange-red main of the painting. We can see the play of colors between the main of the field and the abstract geometrics. The feel of warmth, radiant warmth, is psychologically palpable. The three mysterious, ovoid shadow figures help define the foreground space and connect the foreground and background shadows. One thing about Ms. Turner's work to note is how all horizontal lines lead to the edges of the frame. She is playing with the space beyond the picture. "Radiant Summer" is acrylic on canvas, sized 30x40".

Kas Turner, "Ethereal Rhythms"

We go a bit toward the figurative in "Ethereal Rhythms". Here are a trio of what appears to be guitars. There is a white thread lilting and looping through the painting (departing and re-entering at the borders of the frame. It connects the guitars and the loops form fields of white ovoids. As with everything else, their transparency is exquisitely controlled so as not to overwhelm the other colors. Note the guitar at the bottom center has its loop encircling its neck. The one on the (viewer's) left is superimposed on its loop, and the one to the right is simply near the neck, but it has a small near-loop at the bottom of its neck. At the upper left, there's a green orb, and below it, a narrow near-rectangular form. The yellow-greenish field behind the guitar figures looks aqueous, like water in strong sunlight. The feeling I got from this was one of transcendence.

Kas Turner, "Tidal Forces"

 Existing between the abstract and the landscape, "Tidal Forces" gives the viewer a horizon line with a rising moon, the rest is abstract. There's a diagonal line near the upper right, and leaf-like forms entering from the left edge. Note the textures in the paint, linear and sinous, they give the idea of forceful vectors and motion like water moving in the solunar push-pull of the tides.

Kas Turner, "Coastal Elements #19

"Coastal Elements #19" has louder colors, a sunset in the foreground, contrasting blue orbs above, echoing arcs, a slash of yellow on the left, and Ms. Turner's color fields stacked like color strata. A painting like this and some of the others, lets you know the artist is intimately familiar with the water and its cycles.

Kas Turner

 Congratulations to Kas Turner and the Art Lofts for a memorable solo show.

New Arts Magazine: John Revisky's "Eden"

Eden magazine cover
Billing itself as the "Florida Modern Arts Directory", Eden's first Winter issue is out. I received my copy from Mindy Solomon this week. It is a beautiful magazine. The Art Direction is very good, as are the photography and layout. They have a strong style that seems well-suited for the intended market. The paper and print quality are excellent. The word that comes to mind when reading it is "posh".

The magazine has gathered an impressive number of high-end advertisers, most from Sarasota and St. Petersburg. There are the usual number of advertorial articles laced with superlatives, a fashion pictorial, a technology section (!) with an article on a big-screen TV.  In this issue musician John Lichtenstein, gallerist Mindy Solomon and artist Ales Bask Hostomsky are featured. The articles are lavishly illustrated with images of the art involved. At the back of the magazine is a Gallery section with more art pics.

Mindy Solomon in Eden

It is inspiring in these days to see a new magazine of this caliber launch -- and at $7 per issue it is a bargain. I want to welcome Eden to the area arts culture, and wish it well. As I made my rounds last night, at two opening parties I had friends ask me if I had seen this beautiful new arts magazine. Eden is making a refreshing splash in the West Coast of Florida arts scene.

Congratulations to John Revisky and the Eden staff.

Yarncrochbomb @ Eve N Odd Gallery

Eve N Odd Exhibit Wall
Eve N Odd Gallery is one of the micro-spaces in the Crislip Arcade at the 600 block. It is a model of efficiency, using every inch of space and doing so gracefully, carrying various kinds of art, including smaller works by emerging artists, the exhibits usually get the back wall, above the shelves. This time the theme was yarn and crochet in various forms. This means dolls, handbags, garlands, all kinds of representational work -- and yarncrochbombs, the equivalent of woven graffiti.

On the 600 block

This effectively extended the exhibition space beyond Eve N Odd and out onto the 600 block, among the 2nd Saturday gallery walkers. The textures, pungent color, banding, and other qualities of crocheted and woven art are strikingly different from other media, and quite attractive and hypnotic.

Entrance to Crislip Arcade

The Garland
Artist with her work
The entrance to the Crislip Arcade was beautifully yarn-bombed, in part with jewel-like work. On the left are two artists working on the iron gate to the arcade. To the right is a closer view of the garland hung across the gate. Jane Wang from Mobius/Boston made it, and the inspiration for it came from Angela Ferrara from Brazil, who also designed Eve N Odd's logo. The garland was mailed overnight just in time for the show.

The work on the gate extended below the garland as well and on both sides. Here's another view of the same side of the gate ------>

Work by Kristi Capone
Cat and Skull by Psynner.
The yarn bombed objects/structures extended into the gallery, too. On the left is a telephone yarn bombed by Kristi Capone. Note how the yarn breaks up the hard edges of objects, rendering them in a more organic manner. On the right are a Dia de Los Muertos skull and cat made by Psynner.

scrumble by Margot Woodrough

Bombed on Central
Some of the works were functional, like handbags or blankets, and some were not. On the left is a beautiful, sensuous and colorful scrumble, by Margot Woodrough.

Congratulations to the many artists in the show in both the gallery and the street, and to Jennifer Kosharek and her Eve N Odd gallery for continuing to bring us quality work.

"One Lady Show": Rebekah Eugenia Lazaridis @ Crislip Arcade

View inside the gallery: Two works by Rebekah Eugenia Lazaridis
Rebekah Eugenia Lazaridis, one of the two sisters (the other is Rachel Woods Anderson) who own and run the shop Eugenia Woods, in the Crislip Arcade on the 600 block, was first reviewed here for her work at the Artbook Launch. She is a local, born and raised here, by a family with long roots in the Bay area who went to the Art Institute of Chicago and worked in NYC as a film and theater scenic painter. Saturday, April 14th, she staged a solo show in an unoccupied space in the Crislip Arcade, more or less across the hallway from her store.

R.E. Lazaridis, "House No.1"

"House No. 2"
The walls were covered in black plastic sheeting, which was disorienting, and gave everything a floating feel. There were five paintings in the show, on discarded theatrical set wood scraps.

In each of the paintings, there's a house. It looks like the same house in all of them, seen from a straight-on frontal view. On the left is "House No. 1". Here we see the house threatened by water. Note the highly stylized waves. On the right, "House No. 2". Here the house is threatened by fire. The flames are similarly stylized to the waves in "House No. 1".

"House No. 3"
"House No. 4"

"House No. 3" reminds the viewer s/he's not in Kansas anymore. Here the House is threatened by wind in the form of a tornado. The asymmetry of No. 3 is an excellent composition. "House No. 4" involves an earthquake,which was not an easy thing to depict/suggest without blur, but Lazaridis uses dust being raised horizontally to good effect, and those clouds recede right into the sky. The House(s) are threatened by the four Elements: Air, Land, Wind and Fire, but looks unaffected in each instance.

Rebekah E. Lazaridis, "House of Six"

In the last painting, the house is depicted divided into six panels, and titled "House of Six". Of Six. Allusions to family? The show had the feel of a meta narrative, if not an initiation.

This was an unexpected gem of a show. Congratulations to Rebekah Lazaridis for a tight, compact, high-quality show beautifully staged, all in an improvised space.

Second Warehouse Art District Mural going up at Venture Compound.

Another mural is going up in the WAD over at Venture Compound. If you go south on 24th to Emerson, and take the angular Terminal Drive (love that street name) until it bends you will see this work in progress. There is a finished panel by Akut, and another started by Christian Thomas.

Work by Akut

Above, two of the three panels by the side of Venture Compound. On the right side one can see the work in progress. I will publish more pictures as the work develops. The third panel will be done by Alex "Stoic".

About two blocks away from this is Zen Glass. A third WAD mural will be going up there very soon. It hadn't started as of my visit on Saturday. If this keeps going, and enough variety can make its way onto walls in the district, this will soon become an attraction in itself.

Cakewalk Closes

The Cakewalk Gallery, a series of rental studios and gallery on Central has closed. The space is being remodeled for another business. Cakewalk had some interesting artists and shows. It's a shame to see them go. I knew they had several studios unrented for some time, and that, along with the present and recent status of the economy may have done them in.

Street Art: Is the Warehouse Arts District Mural Finished?

It doesn't seem quite finished. When I went by on last Saturday's artwalk, there was an addition to it...

This seems like a completely different style from anything else on that wall, and it looks like there may be more to come. If anyone knows who did this figure, please email me.

A Gallery is Born: Saint Paint

Derek Donnelly

Derek Donnelly's Saint Paint gallery and Art Apparel store has been open for a few weeks. I mentioned it in the First Saturday Indie Market, but felt it deserved more space here, so I went back on the recent 2nd Saturday Art Walk.

Saint Paint, view from exterior.

Located just Off-Central, at #4 6th Street N, in St Pete, the gallery showcases Donnelly's Work as well as that of other carefully chosen area artists. It's an intimate space. No matter where one stands, artwork is flooding your field of vision. Derek also prints and sells unique art tees.

Saint Paint interior view.

Besides his own celebrity portrait paintings, Derek also carries work by Alex, Reid Jenkins and Jennipher Chandley. On the right is one of many paintings at Saint Paint by Reid Jenkins.

Work by Jennipher Chandley
Work by Jennipher Chandley
Jennnipher Chandley, whose work has been reviewed here before, has work in the gallery, in both paintings and T-shirt versions. On the right and left are two paintings by Ms. Chandley in a style where she has made visible what's in her mind. On the left, it's the city, its skyscrapers, in twisting, organic forms, rising, crowding. Japanese umbrellas float around the space. Passionate green flames of life rising from the crown of the female head are the foundation on which everything stands. On the right, a similar concept, here the buildings are tubes of paint, brushes standing out, note the similar palette, instead of green flames, we have red hair, the figure is introspecting, not looking out like the one on the left. It's a beautiful portrait of the artist (not literal) as  a young woman.

Reid Jenkins was painting just outside Saint Paint. On the left is a close-up of his palette and brushes.

 On the left is another view of the Saint Paint gallery walls. Visible in pink is a Derek Donnelly painting of the singer Adele.

The gallery needs tags by each painting with the title, artist's name and price.

I want to welcome Derek to the community of gallerists in St. Pete. He is a self-starter, not afraid of work, and is willing to go the distance. I wish him the best of luck with Saint Paint.

Central Art Supply

Central Art Supply has sent out an email saying they've lost their lease and are having sales. Are they moving, or closing down?

Open Mic @ Cafe Hey 4/12/12

Cafe Hey window/logo

 Cafe Hey [Link] is a pearl tucked just north of the Insterstate at 1540 N. Franklin St. On Thursday evenings Open Mic night is held. It is run beautifully by poetess Nyssa Hanger and her Doorstop Productions outfit [Link].

Riva (on left) and Nyssa (on right)

 Anyone can walk in, sign the sheet and perform. People tell stories, do stand-up comedy, sing, play music, and read poetry. Viewers take all this in while sipping coffees and enjoying excellent soups, baked goodies, sandwiches and more. Admission is free, though donations are appreciated.

Nyssa Hanger

Nyssa opeed with Fire and Ice, an early poem by Robert Frost [Link] that she said opened her eyes to poetry.


Barry sang two songs, "Cooter Brown", with strong Floridian character, and "Jodell's Song". He's been reviewed here before.

J.D. Ball

What superpower would you want to have, if you could only have one? Comedian J.D. Ball claimed he would like to make his penis whistle. He went on about Twitter, sharks, problems with erections at the beach and the legibility of fliers on the walls behind toilets.

John Jacobs

John Jacobs did comedy routines about Women Boxers, the way people talk to dogs, Harry Potter's and his enemy's illogical predicaments. and the Avatar suicides.


Riva opened with an instrumental, followed by her signature song, Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" [Link]. This is not an easy song, and Riva plays and sings through it in a haunting way.

Cole Bellamy

Cole Bellamy, who sometimes host the Open Mic at Cafe Hey, read Ancient City, a place where every dream meant something. He also read Eternal Hotel, partly based on the place he stayed while going to grad school. Also read Magician.


Brian who does an outstanding straight man routine, did a poignant and very funny bit about leaving facebook.


George, visiting Cole Bellamy all the way from Indiana, played guitar and sang "Monster", a descent into darkness about an unknown creature that killed several dogs and ate them. He also played the flute and read a few poems. 


Michaelangelo read from his phone poems about girls and romance. He also read "Nukes", talked about Tumblr and not wanting to get old.

Law Smith

Law Smith, beer in hand, did comedy about Easter and a precocious kid who heckled him. He also touched on the Trayvor Martin case and the shooter Zimmerman.


The very funny comedienne Mona talked about love for FB, an imaginary friend, and oral sex.


Tony did riffs on guys reading jokes off cell phones, and a sick and humorous thing on suicide notes.


Joseph did his last performance at Cafe Hey, a passionate exploration of quantum existence, onnections, and possibilities.

Open Mic night @ Cafe Hey is an extraordinary thing. Whether you intend to read, watch, or both, the performances are very good, and the Cafe its perfect complement for a memorable evening. All that, and admission is free.

Nyssa Hanger
