Are you going to skim this blog, rather than take time to calmly read it? Probably. That's what most of us do these days. We get the gist, rather than imbibe the essence. We try to fit as much as possible into our day, we spread ourselves thin bouncing from...

It is a bright crisp morning on the banks of the River Seine.

The steady breeze disperses the clouds revealing a wide blue sky, spacious and uninterrupted, until it lands, softly, on the linden trees whose green and golden leaves dance and flutter in the constantly changing light.

It is a bright spring morning in Brooklyn when I hop on my bicycle and head for Socrates Sculpture Park. Until last week I had never been there. It's not the easiest place to get to. Travelling by car or by bicycle affords the most direct route.

Outside it's cold, black and wet. Come inside and up the stairs! And you will see a young lady sitting on the leafy turf with a heap of flowers in her lap, holding a delicate parasol. Sunlight dapples the great bursts of leaves that flutter on the trees, and lands...

At 7 p.m. on the day the storm hit, 65-year-old Ronnie Landfield climbed down the ladder to the basement of his building on Desbrosses street, one block away from the Hudson River in downtown Manhattan. It was bone-dry. Half an hour later, he peered through his first floor apartment window...

Last summer his Genius series filled the Paul Kasmin Gallery's walls to tantalizing effect. Over fifty portrait paintings of perverse and disproportionate but oddly alluring children dressed in period aristocratic costume, with flamboyant hairdo's and each casually holding a smouldering cigarette, stared hauntingly through eyes that were as beautiful as...

There were moments, last week, when I felt myself staring down that well-oiled barrel of Spot Mania despair. Larry and Damien getting richer, culture getting poorer. The art world often seems like a big game, where no one is quite sure of the rules, but no one wants to be...

It is July 11, 2011, 7:10 p.m. in New York City. Between the gigantic steel scaffolding of the Williamsburg Bridge, a young aerialist is hanging off a 20-foot piece of white silky fabric making beautiful shapes in the sky. She guides her body -- an exceptional vessel of strength and...
