Frieze Art Fair 2016 (An Overview)

Pouran Jinchi, The Third Line Gallery, Dubai

Pouran Jinchi is an Iranian-born, New York artist who borrows from her home culture's traditions of literature and calligraphy to pursue her own aesthetic investigations. Having been trained in calligraphy, she finds the relation between words and forms, natural or non-objective, deeply intertwined. In Pouran's recent work, viewers will appreciate her increasingly detailed focus on the form of language as subject matter.
Pouran’s work often employs a mixture of calligraphy and abstract expressionism that intertwines Islamic geometry, Iranian traditions and contemporary aesthetics, with a unique lyricism. Pouran's early paintings were large scale and heavily layered abstractions, whose flowing lines of saturated color and rolling waves of calligraphy brought to life the form as well as the content of the text to which she was responding. With successive series, Pouran narrowed her focus to single words, repeated over and over to create the very object they signified, or aesthetics distilled from a single letter, emphasizing the building block of language and thought.

The "Trump Headstone" Art Installation in Central Park Mystery is now Solved

A tombstone bearing Donald Trump’s name suddenly appeared early one morning in NYC's Central Park. Recently the NYC police and the secret service
tracked down the artist behind the illegal installation.
The artist states it's important to note the stone bears no death date,
because this was intended as a cautionary comment
regarding Trumps potential legacy.

"Trump Headstone" 
Artwork in Central Park 
Was a Mystery... 
Now Solved!


This article was first published online by WND. 
Excerpts from that original story are used with permission 
and were written by Cheryl Chumley.

A tombstone bearing Donald Trump's name surfaced in Central Park. After weeks of mystery, police in New York City have finally identified the man who placed the tombstone in Central Park that bore presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's name. 

Artist Brian Andrew Whiteley


Artist Brian A. Whiteley, 33, told “The New York Times” in an interview arranged by a publicist, he had bought the stone and placed it in the park because he was simply "trying to remind Donald what type of legacy he's leaving behind." 

The tombstone appeared in Central Park in March, on the heels of a rally to protest the billionaire businessman's political ascension. The artist's installation of the grave headstone was first posted by “The Gothamist” on Twitter. The artwork includes an image of the Christian cross and Trump's birth year, 1946, along with the text: "TRUMP, DONALD J., Made America Hate Again."

Police were at first puzzled by the stone, which weighs-in at 420 pounds. Who was behind this and how had they placed it in the park. The authorities got their answers when they tracked down the identity of the artist. A story in “The Gothamist” about the stone, included an interview with the "anonymous artist”, but it also showed several photographs of the stone being created at a local business, which they were able to identify and interview the owner.

The artist found out the police knew and turned himself in. Police and the Secret Service interrogated Whiteley for many hours, but did not charge him with any crime. The Trump campaign has not commented.

Meanwhile, the stone is in a police storage facility in the Bronx. The artist is hoping to have it returned, so he can exhibit the piece in either New York or Washington, D.C.

Until later,
Jack

FOOD:
Eggplant Rollatini

Ingredients

medium eggplants 
Salt and pepper 
1/4 cup olive oil 
10-oz. box frozen chopped spinach, thawed, squeezed dry 
3 cups part-skim ricotta 
cloves garlic, minced 
large eggs, beaten 
1 1/2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella 
3/4 cup grated Parmesan 
24-oz. jar marinara sauce

Directions


Slice ends off eggplants. Cut eggplants lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick slices, discarding peel-covered ends. You should get roughly 16 slices total. Lay slices on a rimmed baking sheet and sprinkle both sides liberally with salt. Let stand for 15 minutes, then rinse salt off under cold running water and pat slices dry.

Preheat oven to 400ºF. Brush both sides of eggplant slices with olive oil and place in single layers on 2 baking sheets. Roast for 15 minutes, until tender, turning eggplant slices over halfway through. Let cool on sheets on wire racks until cool enough to handle.

In a large bowl, combine spinach, ricotta, garlic, eggs, 1/2 cup mozzarella and 1/2 cup Parmesan. Season with 1 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. pepper. Mist a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Spread 1/2 cup of sauce over bottom of dish. Divide ricotta mixture among eggplant slices, using about 1/3 cup for each, spreading it down the center. Roll up slices and place seam-side down in baking dish. Top with remaining sauce and sprinkle with remaining mozzarella and Parmesan.

Cover baking dish with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake until browned and bubbling, about 15 minutes longer. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
