Call for Artist Entries for Looking In/Looking Out Show at BronxArtSpace

The next Synthetic Zero show at BronxArtSpace, Looking In/Looking Out, co-curated by Emily Roberts-Negron and Mitsu Hadeishi has an open call for artist submissions. The curators are looking for visual art, performance, experimental video, music, readings, dance, or other work for the show.*

About the show theme:  

Looking in: I look at you, but I see a mixture of me and you, a facade of our reflections. When we look in on someone or some thing, we imagine what we see doesn’t notice our gaze, yet the act of looking forever changes what we see as well as ourselves. Can we ever really be separate from what we see? Can we ever really touch what we see?

Looking out: A romantic gesture beyond ourselves. We look out at what appears to be a/the/our world, surrounding us in sequence. But its expanse is indefinite. How far can we see before the lines begin to blur?

Can we see without looking?

Please email us at with information about your submission; links, images, artist statement. If you would like to submit video, please do NOT send DVDs — send links to videos on Vimeo, YouTube, or download links for video files.

Please feel free to submit any and all work related to the theme closely or remotely. The submission deadline is October 10.

Please call 718 772-4961

From Manhattan, 4-5 train to 125th, transfer to 6, one stop to 3rd Ave/138th St, it’s 2 blocks from there.

Bad Habits: Erotic Humor and Food in the Portrait Paintings of Nadine Robbins

Eggsistencial, Nadine Robbins

Eggsistencial, Nadine Robbins

Peel back the layers in the images and titles of Nadine Robbins oil paintings to find multiple meanings (double entendre) of subtle erotic humor–a theme that she carries thought out her work.

Nadine  grew up in France, (with a mother who was an artist) and attended an impressive array of fine art schools.  Nadine’s work has twice been featured in the prestigious Royal Society of Portrait Painters show in London.

Golden Gown, Nadine Robbins

Golden Gown, Nadine Robbins

Her portrait The Golden Gown, while on display at the Brill Gallery, was hailed by art critic Keith Shaw as  “the best nude oil painting I’ve seen in the Berkshires outside The Clark [Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute]. Critic Shaw went on to say that, ”Nadine Robbins is developing into a superb figure painter, and her double portrait, The Golden Gown, is an American masterpiece, both technically and artistically.”

Moxie, Nadine Robbins

Nadine’s reach also extends to Chicago, where renowned collector Howard Tullman has added her portrait “Moxie” to his impressive array of nudes.

Nadine Robbin’s work will hang in the exhibition Fixation 2014, curated by Sergio Gomez & Didi Menendeza show in a Chicago gallery that will focus on physical or psychological obsessions with objects or subjects.

Mrs. McDonald, Nadine Robbins

Besides her clever and skillful renderings of the human face and form, Nadine has a passion for oysters.  Four of her still life paintings of oysters are featured in our sidebar gallery. Click on any image to go the artist’s website. Or click this link:

At “Now You See It Now You Don’t”

Now You See It Now You Don’t, the 8th Terrace annual, is a one day only event, curated by Karl Bielik, it’s as whacky as they come, and amazing.  On a warm sunny afternoon/evening in late August,  4-17 Frederick Terrace, London, becomes this delightful space for looking at art, socialising and listening  to music.


Over the last six years 162 different artists have shown over 300 pieces of work in this now transformed, former wasteland. Exposed to the elements the works have shifted, faded, broken, rotted, remained and in some cases, disappeared. This year 64 artists have added new work.

In Lisa Denyer‘s painting, I feel sure that the watery stains, complementing harder straight lines, were in the finished piece before it was exposed to the elements. However, the possibility that they could be the result of weathering seems so right.


Similarly, in a 12″ x 12″ painting…
