Holiday Shopping Guide From Our Community

If you are looking to buy your loved ones something special this holiday, look no further. Artists from around the world are offering incredible original works and prints fit for every budget.

Support your art community and give something unique this year (or keep it for yourself).

From The Editor: Thank You

Dear Friend,

As I sit down and think about the fact that the magazine has been around for two years, I am filled with awe, gratitude, and excitement for things to come. As you can imagine, any creative project has its challenges and setbacks. I have been fortunate to meet an incredible team of writers, curators, and editors along with the incredible art community that keeps this publication going year after year.

From the left: Shelby (Designer), Ekaterina (Editor and Founder) and Alicia (Writer)

Because of your support, we have celebrated our two-year anniversary and are excited for things ahead. Even in this digital age, there is something so special about exploring new art through print. Our passion lies in helping our readers and collectors discover new talent, or get to know familiar names in the art world on a more intimate level. From an artist's perspective, there is nothing more magical than seeing your own work on glossy pages of a quality magazine.

Reflecting on the past two years, we are proud to serve a diverse and global community of artists and we're so thankful to celebrate together with a few of you at Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in October. We hope to continue engaging with you in person at curated events and through our new platform, the Art & Cocktails Podcast.

So here's your homework for the rest of the year:

I want to encourage you to start that project you keep thinking about, whether it's a new ambitious body of work or creative business venture like a zine or gallery space. If it's been on your mind for a few months or years and you just haven't pulled the trigger, start researching how you can make it happen. It's hard work, time consuming, and will make you crazy at times, but I promise you it's worth it. You will build an entire tribe, discover your strengths, and potentially help change the course of the art world.

Thank you for being a part of our thriving art community.

Warm Regards,

Ekaterina

Art New York 2018: Interview With Archeus/ Post-Modern

ARCHEUS / POST-MODERN 

Director Brian Balfour–Oatts

www.archeus.com

(Donald Judd, Untitled)

(Donald Judd, Untitled)

 

Tell us a little bit about your gallery. What types of art do you generally focus on?

We deal in works from the so-called "secondary market", which means pieces which are already in the marketplace, and not being sold on behalf of the artist. The artists in whose work we deal are all very established, in museum collections, and are generally held to be amongst the best and most well-known of their generation

What should visitors expect from your booth in Art New York this year?

Predominantly important abstract work. We have some very fine examples of paintings by Pierre Soulages, Josef Albers and Ron Gorchov, and rare editions by Donald Judd and Bridget Riley. The majority of artists that we hold are abstract, both gestural and hard-edged - although we are also very involved with the figurative work of Hockney, Freud, Warhol and Ed Ruscha.

Please share a few tips for new collectors and those interested in investing in art for the first time.

If an artist isn't already in the collection of MoMA or the Tate, then don't even think about the investment angle. Check recent acquisitions by both of those institutions, as well as other international museums (usually available online) and see what they have bought in the last year.

If you consider your purchase of art to be an investment, then it's fine to buy with your ears. Unless you have been looking at paintings every day for ten years, ask and listen.

What are your favorite aspects of participating in art fairs?

The non-stop nature of the four or five days of an art fair is very exciting. Every minute a different conversation begins, and you speak to hundreds of people in a very short space of time.  One way or another, the majority of my most important and favorite clients have met me through art fairs.

Name a few important works we should keep an eye on when visiting. 

We have a super-rare set of ten black woodcuts by Donald Judd, the only set ever to have appeared on the market, other examples of which are owned by MoMA and SFMoMA. 

We also have a beautiful Albers painting which belongs to the same group that was the subject of the Guggenheim's recent "Albers in Mexico" exhibition. 

Genuinely museum quality works are a joy to own, even if it is temporary.

‘SUAIKA’ ART PANELS: A Creative Collaboration in (Washi) Paper & Pigment 

April 2, 2018   Tokushima, Japan

Inquiries: Craig Anczelowitz

‘SUAIKA’ ART PANELS: A Creative Collaboration in (Washi) Paper & Pigment 

SUAIKA (‘SU’ = Sumi  / ‘AI’ = Aizome (Indigo)  / KA=Kakishibu (Persimmon)

Venerable 8th generation papermaker, Awagami Factory proudly launches a new creative collaboration between Japanese indigo artisan, Mieko Fujimori + American designer, Craig Anczelowitz. 16 contemporary art panels crafted with purely organic pulp and pigments locally sourced in Tokushima; An East-meets-West art collection steeped in tradition yet thoroughly modern.

BAMBOO FOREST Deeply rooted in Japanese culture, Bamboo has touched nearly every aspect of life here for centuries – these art panels follow in the storied tradition. The plants unique combination of strength and suppleness is celebrated in this work as bamboo elegantly stretches across a snow-like paper landscape

SHIFU Traditional Japanese paper string (shifu) lends its name to these works. Contrasting tones in a double-layered composition provide a wonderful depth in each piece. Because of subtle variations in organic pigment and handmade washi, each panel serves as a beautiful ode to nature and the Japanese craft tradition.

YANAGI’S surface waves gracefully in an elegant composition of texture & tone. Made by repeated folding and dip-dyeing in Tokushima’s famed indigo, each art panel is a singular creative expression of master artisan, Mieko Fujimori.

MOSAIC is crafted from extra thick hand-cast paper; a specialty of Awagami master papermakers and feature a dramatic interplay of organic and geometric forms resulting in compositions that are both visually and texturally impressive

February/March 2018 Issue Contents

Congratulations to the artists selected by our guest curators the TAX Collection for the February/March 2018 edition. 

The TAX Collection is a New York based multi-media platform for artists, galleries and creatives. The organization has been featured in Forbes, Vogue Italy, Nylon Korea and more.  

"The TAX Collection is a multi-modal creative platform aimed at revolutionizing the way popular culture interacts within producer-consumer, artist-audience, and creator-user relationships. Culture stagnates around specific icons and imagery for no apparent reason; it simply just does. The general public has been duped, allowing themselves to be misled into subscribing to industry set standards and trends. Durkheim explains that anything can be considered sacred through the act of setting it apart. We pose the rhetorical question, ‘Who says?’ Sacred things are not set apart because they are special; sacred things are special because they are set apart. Just as in popular culture, trends dominate consumer desire and, in turn, creators and artists are tailored to design what the consumer considers trendy - stifling artistic freedom of expression."

Thank You For Making 2017 Amazing!

Dear Reader,

Thank you for an amazing 2017! With your support, Create! Magazine was able to build a beautiful community. Over the past 12 months we published the work of hundreds of inspiring artists and got to share it with like-minded people across the globe.

There were so many memorable moments this year, including having our publication in London, New York, Amsterdam, and more. We were a proud media partner of Art Miami Fairs during Art Basel Miami, and I (Ekaterina) even got to meet a few of you in person (that was the most exciting part)! All these experiences reminded me of how important it is to have this strong, supportive community. Our artists do not compete with each other, but keep each other accountable, inspired, and motivated in their studio practice and that’s something worth celebrating.

A new year is just around the corner, and the first thing I want to do is encourage us all to take a deep breath and give ourselves a pat on the back. Let’s be proud of everything we were able to accomplish and reflect on this journey with gratitude before we make our big plans for 2018.

For Create!, plans include continuing our collaborations with inspiring leaders in the art world, starting with our recent curator The TAX Collection who will be guiding us into the new year with their selections for the February issue. We are serious admirers of their curation and extraordinary taste in contemporary art. Next, we are excited to have Danielle Krysa, aka the Jealous Curator, jury the April edition. We cannot wait to see what she picks!

Our focus for 2018 is to create an even stronger bond within members of our platforms, facilitate more in-person interactions in meet ups and celebrate our publication with launch parties. We have plans for more curatorial projects that support the career development of our artists.

Our online shop will be on a little break during the month of January, but will resume at the beginning of February with exciting updates once our new edition launches. All new subscriptions will start with the February edition.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being a part of this magazine, lovely group of makers, and beautiful human beings.

Let’s make 2018 the best year yet! Cheers!

Warm Regards,

Ekaterina
