  • The Dichotomy and Merger of the Traditional and Modern: Eugeniusz Zak

    By Milad Doroudian

    July 27, 2015 | 3:32 pm

    It is rather difficult to imagine the crossroads which art takes at times through its progress, yet it is even more so to understand it as a fluid and often complex road towards dichotomies and mergers of styles, forms, and periods. If there is one artist that helps us understand...

  • Kitaj: The years of a troubled genius

    By Milad Doroudian

    June 30, 2015 | 10:04 am

    To create great art requires a lot of troubled solitude. Loneliness in all forms and perhaps even more importantly the fact that one must go through the criticism of those who critique art without feelings, remorse, or talent. It was not as many would believe a lack of character on...

  • Sonia Delaunay’s absorbing aesthetics in art and fashion

    By Milad Doroudian

    May 4, 2015 | 1:36 pm

    They say that fashion and art are usually very different things, yet of course we know that cannot be true, mainly because of the intrinsic aesthetic values that they share so fully and totally. When we speak of fashion, Orphism, and even poetry Sonia Delaunay cannot be taken out...

  • Straight lines and solid colors: the genius behind Newman

    By Milad Doroudian

    April 23, 2015 | 1:17 pm

    Solid lines, and colors all imperceptibly unconquerable by the full nature of the eyes, yet even more still unconquerable by the nature of our souls. Newman’s work is imperceptible, not because of its existential qualities, rather because of his simple genius. The lines of his...

    By Milad Doroudian

    March 30, 2015 | 9:04 am

    There are things that just don’t seem to mix at times, such as mustard on oatmeal, but when it comes to pop-art and Hasidic Judaism, you might just be surprised at how well the two go together.

    Yitzchok Moully, a rabbi, a man of learning, and a brilliant artist dwells...

  • The Wistful Hirszenberg

    By Milad Doroudian

    February 10, 2015 | 9:26 am

    When we stare at art, or what we may call art sometimes, it is human nature to want to look at the pleasant, the pleasing, yet here is an exception, an example rather of an artist’s work whose visual debauchery although might end up in someone having nightmares, or at least the...

  • British pop sensation Alex Clare balances stardom and Orthodoxy

    October 31, 2012 | 11:37 am

    Alex Clare is really just a nice Jewish boy.

    Sure, his hit “Too Close” is currently the seventh most popular song in the United States, his music video has garnered more than 18 million hits on YouTube and he has mobs of teenage girls chasing him around Europe. But at the end of...

    Artists and musicians, among others, convened in a West Hollywood loft last spring for an event known as SEDER, the Hebrew word for “order” that also refers to the ritual that accompanies the Passover meal. And while they didn’t celebrate Passover that evening, the attendees...

    As a little girl growing up in New York City, Eleanor Antin went with her mother to see a performance by the world-renowned Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo. "I can still see the dancers in my mind, leaping across the stage," she said. "I absolutely loved it."

    Years later, as a conceptual...

  • Was Judaism a color on Rothko’s palette?

    By Tom L. Freudenheim

    November 9, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    Like many people of my generation, I first grooved on Mark Rothko's paintings at Washington, D.C.'s Phillips Collection in the 1960s. The museum's founder, Duncan Phillips, an early Rothko patron, had assembled four sublime paintings in a small room (approximately 13-by-24 feet) --...
