Gina Magid

Gina's paintings on satin and wood are iconic but mysterious, like talismans. There are decorative, painstaking moments in these(which i love) where the drawing is more obsessive, the glittering sand glued on - perfectly in the lines. At the same time her paintings are completely direct and can be primitive-seeming, pared down too. They mine a line - forceful elegance, known but not known - searching for just the right spot, just the right juncture, not fussy, but open like a dark, starry night. unconsciousness. There is a space for feeling around in her work. I am always struck again and again by Gina's ability to conjure the magic, her choices of subject matter, material, and how much something is described. poetic.


Owl with Two Hands, 2005


BMX Rider, 2006

Gina's show, Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, opens this Saturday night (5:30-7:30) at Feature and runs through May 13th.

Update: Gina has a website - just about done, ginamagid.com !

Looks like another rich Yale-bitch to me. I heard that she SLEPT with Tom Friedman to get her show - it's pathetic. And I mean, she obviously can't draw. She's definitely no Tintoretto... She has some pretty hot outfits though.

BB: Why you so mean? You sound like Snake. And couldn't she have picked someone better to sleep with?

These look great. I will definitely have to catch the show.

It's truly very difficult in this active life to listen news on Television, therefore I simply use the web for that reason, and get the most recent information.

I hardly comment, but аftеr looking at а few of the

Is it simply me or do a few of these comments look as if they are written by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting on additional online social sites, I would like to keep up with you.
