Capturing Darkness and Light



“Remember when …”

How often do we meet an old friend and say, “Remember when …”? And how often do we hear, these days, of people who don’t – or can’t?

The Lenox Hill Neighborhood House in New York City is one place among many where those afflicted by dementia in any one of  its considerable forms have a chance to drill down into the well of lost memories to bring something back they may not recognize even while “remembering.” The method employed is Art Therapy, and the maestro is Elizabeth Hartowicz, whose efforts to help those in need – including family members – keep a spark flickering in the lives of those for whom the flames are clearly being extinguished…

Karen Gunderson Exhibition

In March 2015, Waterhouse & Dodd will be exhibiting recent works by Karen Gunderson.

Gunderson was born in Racine, Wisconsin. She earned her MA of Fine Arts from the University of Iowa and has since received many honors and awards, including a Lorenzo Magnifico Prize in Painting at the 2001 Florence Biennale, Italy. Significant solo exhibitions include: the Charles A. Wustum Art Museum, Wisconsin, 1985; Brattleborough Museum Art Center, 2002; Circulo de Bellas Artes, Madrid, 2004; Museum of Gdansk, 2009 and Bahrain National Museum, 2010. Her paintings were included in the ART in Embassies US program in Togo, West Africa 2000 and in Manama, Bahrain, 2010.

Beginning in the 1980s, Gunderson developed her own style and language of painting in which she applies black oil paint with innovative brush strokes. She uses five different hues of black and by scoring the surface to create impasto she manipulates the reflections of light to generate extraordinary effects – in her sea paintings, for example, the viewer experiences an illusion of movement in the waves and clouds as they walk around the canvas. One could accurately describe her medium as ‘light on oil paint on canvas’.

March 3 – March 28, Waterhouse & Dodd, 47 Albemarle Street, London  W1S 4JW

Eric Ross/Music Review

To be honest, I felt a bit intimidated to approach reviewing an album that by all accounts is an important work. I know very little about the Theremin, beyond that it was invented in 1920 and used in songs like the Beach Boys’ “Good Vibrations” and the beautiful and haunting theme for the 1960s’ series “Dark Shadows,” composed by Robert Colbert. The album has received rave reviews from the New York Times and other world class publications. The only thing I can offer are my personal experiences and perceptions listening to the music, to tell why the music was interesting to me…

Art Therapy & Drawing From the Past

José María Sicilia, Spanish artist, and most recent visitor to the Lennox Hill Neighborhood House artist program, stood contemplatively in the room where he was set to address the residents, family members, and staff. Painter of seductive surfaces, swirling and breathless, Sicilia’s work is beautifully executed and lends itself to the performative: a trait influenced by Ab Ex and time spent with John Cage.

Night in Bishkek / William T. Hathaway

He looked out over the sprawling Central Asian capital and the Kyrgyz Air Force base across the street. At the corner a metal gate had been blown open. It had been part of a walled perimeter, had blocked a road leading into the base. Next to the guard house lay a soldier, chest dark with blood, a stubby rifle strapped across it. Two trucks—a pickup and a semi—were driving over the runway. A machine gun was sandbagged atop the cab of the pickup, and the men behind it wore ski masks and long robes in the eighty-degree heat. He moved toward the door. To defend her, he had to get the rifle…
