Hyperallergic says many of the works in Iðavöllur are big and chock-full of issues and socially engaged ideas, like so much art elsewhere. Dodda gets a nice nod.
Hyperallergic notes that the work Sheela (and others) have in Fault Lines prove that abstraction need not be confined to the inner life of the artist.
Artforum has words about “Visual Consciousness,” a traveling retrospective of Mohammed’s work.
Juxtapoz covers Paradigm of Charcoal, new work by Lee* at Perrotin in Hong Kong (*who splits time between Paris and Cheongdo).
Fahrelnissa Zeid (b. 1901, Istanbul – d. 1991, Amman) was a Turkish artist born into a prominent Ottoman family whose work blended elements of Islamic and Byzantine art from the East with abstract influences from the West. She worked in a variety of media such as large oil paintings, collages and stained glass panels. Zeid was among the first women to attend the Academy of Fine Art in Istanbul.
Her oeuvre contains abstraction like below and figuration.
