Suzanne C. Nagy is an environmental artist and curator, born in Hungary, living and working in New York City. She is a member of the Yale Club and is listed in the “Who’s Who,” in the Successful American Women Directory. She has a degree in economy and got a diploma for film writing and producing, studied art at the New York Art Student League between 1980-1982. She invented Transparentism in 2004, and in her work she uses a method of creating 3-D, transparent, photographic sculptures to visualize the depth and meaning of pollution. She made the non-seeable and made it seeable for the human eye. She exhibited her work all over in the USA and Europe. Transparentism is a product of our digital and technological age. Artists now have immense possibilities to experience new way of creating art. One of her signature work is LED light boxes, and LED light panels. After documenting the cause of pollution she started to work on the solution of sustainability. In 2013 she started to create three-dimensional, large scale, light panels, under the series “Sustainable Nature Solution.”

INTERVIEW: CECILIA IBETH ÁLVAREZ MORENO

Interviews | September 24, 2020

I was born in Mexico City, my parents were both plastic artists, so artistic expression is in my blood, it is part of me, beyond what academic study can do for anyone. My mother said I was born bored. I am a person who gets bored easily with routine.

INTERVIEW: MELANIE MOLLO

Interviews | September 24, 2020

Feelings flow freely into the soul, without control, as the colors on the canvas become one with it. That it is happiness, sadness, love, passion, anger, they dominate us and dominate our actions. Like the flow of a river into the sea, they get lost in the immensity of our being, regenerating itself in the latter, and then share their new life as a drop and source of feeling. This underlines the cyclical nature without a beginning or an end. Feelings are part of us forging our character. Read more

Art | September 23, 2020

Curated by Mel Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino Italian Art, This Special Exhibition Examines Parallel Artistic Movements in the 1960s and 1970s in the U.S. and Italy through the artwork of Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Cold Spring, NY – August 24, 2020 – This fall, Magazzino Italian Art opens a special exhibition examining the formal, conceptual, and procedural affinities in the work of Mel Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Curated by Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino, the exhibition marks the first presentation to consider the American artist’s extensive, yet overlooked, engagement with the practices of Fontana and Boetti, as well as with Italian art at large. Bochner Boetti Fontana offers, through the artist’s perspective, a number of resonances between his work and that of the Italian and Italian-Argentine artists: an exploration of systems, language, and materials; and a sense of irony and humor, often and especially shared by Arte Povera and Conceptualism, as all these works opened the work of art onto the space of display.
