In autumn 2012 I visited the White Cube Gallery in Bermondsey, London, with a friend of mine. We went to see an exhibition of the works of Theaster Gates. I had not heard of this artist before but I was quite impressed. Gates works with materials such as fire hoses, black tar and wood. He comes from Chicago and often uses the money he makes from his art to renovate poor areas in around the city that he was born in. I think its commendable that he uses his position in the art world as a productive force of good and I’d recommend anyone to visit his future shows.

Iva Gueorguieva paintings @ Ameringer McEnry Yohe on 2/8/2014
Awesome show. Really enjoyed seeing the layered details of her work.
"Comprised of interwoven layers of ripped and torn muslin, linen, potent pigments, and diluted washes of color, Iva Gueorguieva creates a palpable energy and sense of kinetic frenzy that reverberates through her turbulent paintings and skeleton-like sculptures.
She works on multiple paintings at once, all at varying degrees of completion, to take advantage of the spontaneous nature of the process to conjoin sometimes-divergent thoughts into assemblages of chaotic symmetry…” -via Ameringer McEnry Yohe press release
