Susan Holcomb ’77: Nightlight Solo Art Exhibition at Bandini Art

Set in the dramatic moments between sunset and nightfall, Susan Holcomb's paintings are complex meditations on the infinite. Her luminous canvases, on show at Bandini Art from May 26 - June 30, depict not only the limitless skies of the American west but also the means by which we seek to interpret them.

The expanses of land, sea and heavens that fill Holcomb's paintings are overlaid with charts and diagrams, referencing the systems that classify our world. Mapped first in the imagination and then through math and science, the hundred billion stars that become visible at night challenge our understanding of the universe.

From the campfire stories of our ancestors, through astrology and astronomy, to astrophysics and personal readings, the symbols assigned to the stars carry different meanings. In some of Holcomb's paintings, the grid of contemporary Los Angeles stretches to the horizon mirrored by schematics in the sky. In others the ocean, or mountains, provide the subject. The iconography floating above can be profound, or touched with humor, but is always thought provoking.

Poised between the worlds of light and darkness, science and intuition, perception and logic, the paintings pay tribute to the transcendent beauty of the natural world and our attempts, as stargazers, to define the indefinable.

Susan Holcomb has work in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

Bandini Art is located in the Culver City Arts District. For artists' statements, biographies and images please contact Alison Rowe at (323) 573-7574.

"Mr. Sheldon, who first studied to be a composer, is skilled at separating beauty from the material world while reminding us that it is just about everywhere. He makes his quietly ecstatic art out of almost nothing, or, more accurately, several almost-nothings, carefully juxtaposed."

Angela von der Lippe ’72 Publishes First Novel

Angela von der Lippe '72 has published her first novel, The Truth about Lou (Counterpoint Press, 2007). From the press release for The Truth about Lou:

"In this boldly evocative novel famed literary muse Lou Andreas-Salome emerges from the shadows of the biographies and correspondences to tell her remarkable life story, from its beginnings in Imperial Russia to its menacing end in Nazi Germany. Her story unfolds through the three major loves of her life: at age twenty-one she meets the smitten and ultimately spurned philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche; at thirty-six she takes the fledgling poet Rainer Maria Rilke as her first lover; and at fifty she wins the deep affection of Sigmund Freud. She depicts a world including the Wagners, Tolstoy, Rodin, the Freud circle, Marlene Dietrich and Hitler, to name a few.

Deftly weaving in the present-day character Anna Kane, a writer swept up in unraveling the link between her own grandmother and Salome, von der Lippe layers what is known about Salome with what can only be imagined. Blending themes of memory, religious faith, and human redemption, this novel transports us to a lost world and renders a multi-dimensional flesh and blood portrait of the elusive Lou Salome, as unforgettable as the woman who inspired it."

Angela von der Lippe is a senior editor at W.W. Norton. Her previous work includes translating and editing You Alone Are Real to Me (BOA Editions, 2003), a memoir by Lou Andreas-Salomé on her former lover, the German poet Rainer Maria Rilke.

Laurie Blauner ’74 Publishes Second Novel

Laurie Blauner '74 has published her second novel entitled Infinite Kindness with the publishing house Black Heron Books. Here follows a synopsis of the novel:

"In 1867 London, England, Ann Russell, a nurse and a veteran of the Crimean War, deals with issues of euthanasia, medicine, war, sexual identity, and spirituality. In the Crimea, Ann worked with Florence Nightingale; back in England, she still consults her for advice and support. Ann struggles with the transition to civilian life while working at a charity hospital. She also commits acts of euthanasia, a practice she adopted when desperately wounded English soldiers begged her to kill them. Lyrical and questioning, this historical novel explores the timeless concerns of life, death, compassion, and personal growth as viewed through the prism of Victorian England."

Meredith Monk ’64 Receives U.S. Artists Grant, Creates Meredith Monk Archive at NY Public Library for the Performing Arts

Meredith Monk '64 was selected as one of 54 American artists working in a wide variety of disciplines and at various career stages to receive a $50,000 grant from the newly-created United States Artists (USA). The grants have "no strings attached." The winners, who were announced at a press conference in New York City on December 4, were selected by panels of artists, critics, scholars and other arts professionals from an initial pool of 300 artists who had been nominated by 150 anonymous arts leaders around the country. Monk is one of seven performing artists to be named a USA Fellow this year.

After years of thinking and discussion, Monk, renowned as a pioneer of multi-disciplinary art, announced her decision to donate her archives to the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center. The 64-year-old artist, who has challenged audiences' and critics' categorical thinking with her multi-media creations for over 40 years, now takes on the Library's traditional cataloging systems. Where to house the materials of this multi-award-winning composer, choreographer, director and filmmaker? The solution: Centralize the materials in the Music Division, while having them all available for call up through the computers in each of the Library's divisions. The Monk archive marks the Library's first cross-disciplinary collection. The donation includes one-of-a-kind books, scores, recordings, films, performance audio and video, tapes of works in progress, photographs and slides, personal notebooks, correspondence, reviews and program books.

Eisa Ulen Richardson ’90 Publishes Debut Novel

Eisa Ulen Richardson has published her debut novel, Crystelle Mourning. This profound and intense debut novel is the story of a young African American woman from West Philadelphia who finds her path to a bright future in gentrified Brooklyn, New York, blocked when she can't let go of the love she lost. With its deeply resonant depictions of urban African American life and the cultural forces that challenge and sustain their communities, Crystelle Mourning is a triumphant, lyrical beginning to a bright new talent in fiction.

Some quotes about Crystelle Mourning:

"A novel that affirms faith in the enduring power of young love. Welcome Eisa Ulen." -- Elizabeth Nunez, author of Prospero's Daughter and Bruised Hibiscus

“With a rhythmic flow of words and descriptive detail, Ulen powerfully captures Crystelle’s struggle with both the past and the present.” --Uptown magazine

“Ulen wisely takes her time revealing Crystelle’s pain, creating an authentic quality to her story. You feel for Crystelle as she tries to make sense of her life, even as you’re urging her to move forward and leave the past behind.” --Essence

“With its languid pacing and rhythmic voice, Eisa Nefertari Ulen’s novel at times feels like and elongated spoken-word poem… Ulen manages to pull it off with her nuanced depictions of Black life and her obvious love for her characters as they strive to create new realities out of the heartbreaking events of the past.” --The Washington Post

The book is available in stores and online now.

Caitlin McDonald is participating in an art show entitled "Willful Encounters (at a bus stop)". Partly funded by the Pinellas County Arts Council of Florida, Caitlin and Maria Saraceno, a local sculptor and activist artist, went to a bus stop near a major hotel twice a week for four months, where, she says, "We interviewed and catered to people we met there, providing snacks and hand massages. This particularly focused on workers dependent on the bus for transportation, including guest workers from Jamaica, Haiti, and Brazil. We videoed and photographed our experiences. These were then presented in a local art gallery on a screen constructed from stacked bedsheets and pillows. We also crocheted long strips of fabric representing the roads traveled by the workers, as well as the transmission of information and cultures.
