Suzy Kellems Dominik Returns to Nautilus

Last year, in the midst of Miami Art Week 2017, countless spectators stood beneath a series of clear glass tubes and dangling white wires, waiting for an eruption of sorts. An orgasm, to be blunt. The work, by Suzy Kellems Dominik, lit the walls of the Nautilus in neon shades...

In the Studio with Joseph Algieri

Globs of resin, swirls of vinyl, piped loops of ceramic. From his studio in Brooklyn, artist and designer Joseph Algieri creates works where the natural order of things seems to be encouraged. Foam is left to settle into pools. Chaotic splatters create winning design motifs. The genius is in...

In the Studio with Shinji Murakami

Those of us of a certain age will remember it clearly: sitting in front of a tube television, our young reflections trapped in its thick curved glass, fingers moving furiously over the rudimentary plane of a controller. In the right hand: red buttons, A and B. In the left:...

The Interrogator with Helen Levi

Brooklyn-based ceramicist Helen Levi deals in the kind of perfect imperfection that is wholly aligned with the aesthetic of today. Each piece, made out of her light-filled industrial studio in Red Hook, is unique and bespoke. Lines waver, paint drips, colors meld. Levi’s work is the antithesis of mass...

At the Table with Night + Market’s Kris Yenbamroong

In some ways, Night + Market seems inevitable. Kris Yenbamroong, its chef and founder, grew up in the kitchen of his family’s restaurant. Talesai was sleek, sexy, upmarket–a place Yenbamroong’s father, then a banker, could bring his banker friends to. It was a Sunset Boulevard staple that, at its...

SIXTY Takes on John Cheever’s “The Swimmer”

In John Cheever’s classic short story “The Swimmer,” his protagonist, Neddy, uses his neighbors’ pools to swim his way home. He strings these man-made bodies of water together–a “river” in the wealthy outer suburbs of New York. Along the way, he drinks (heavily), talks (grandly), and swims (rather cavalierly)....

In the Studio with Vicki Sher

No matter the seeming sparseness of a Vicki Sher work, its fullness of purpose and intention is undeniable. Lines move freely across their surface. Colors–in circles, half-moons, misshapen squares–are employed confidently, piled on liberally or utilized with methodical reserve. The choice always seems a correct one, as though Sher has assessed a landscape...

The Interrogator with Aimee Brodeur

For New Yorkers, shopping for groceries is as intimate a ritual as any. Without cars or convenient alternatives, most lug their hauls home in canvas totes and paper bags–plastic, with no small amount of guilt, when ill-prepared or on the run. People become personally attached to certain purveyors. They swear by...
