Timeless Treasures

Instead of reading between the lines, look between the gaps. Artist Donna Ruff meticulously cuts dazzling patterns on the front pages of newspapers, namely The New York Times for her fine art pieces.

Ruff says that “I like to cut away or remove parts of pages so that there is a kind of conversation between what is printed on the page and what is removed – the positive and negative space are equally important.”

With one look at her exquisite artworks, the patterns seem to have been cut out with the aid of an assembly line cookie-cutter machine. Ruff hand-cuts each and every New York Times front page from the easily accessible page corners to the much more difficult internal nooks and crannies.

Her works create a different way to explore the paper, trying to decipher the story on the pages while stepping back to appreciate the intricate and elegant hand cut pieces.

The New York Times inspired and played an important role in another artwork, one that can be seen while visiting the influential newspaper. Since 2007, The New York Times building has been showcasing an expansive media art installation called “Movable Type” by artists Mark Hansen and Ben Rubin.

Five hundred and sixty identical vacuum fluorescent display screens are hung from multiple wires that stretch across two huge walls. The screens are synchronized displaying data from The New York Times historical databank, feedback from readers, and as well as up-to-the-minute breaking news.

In addition to The New York Times informing and entertaining readers since 1851, it inspires artists including Donna Ruff, Mark Hansen, and Ben Rubin to create timeless treasures of their own.

Art In Design….Gideon Gelber & Benjamin Ascher

As classmates in Cornell University’s Architecture program, Gideon Gelber and Benjamin Ascher know what it’s like to work side by side.

Twelve years later, Gelber and Ascher co-founded Studio g&a, combining their finely crafted architecture expertise and technical color theory to create the perfect blend of an architecture and interior design firm.

Gelber and Ascher describe their architecture and design style as “Warm Modern,” having perfected a happy medium between comfortable, eco-friendly living and stylish, approachable spaces.

With Studio g&a in its eighth year, Gelber and Ascher’s projects have been recognized by media like The New York Times, New York Spaces, and HG Television.

While Gelber and Ascher have a remarkable sense of space and style, when it comes to putting art into an interior the duo says, “The search for art is almost always a collaborative effort; it’s got to be something that speaks to the client.”

After browsing through nAscent Art New York’s repertoire of artists, Gelber and Ascher highlighted Carlos Page for his imaginative assemblage of material and Lewis Folden for his whimsical compilation of composition.

“Art is probably the most personal thing we put in a space,” Gelber and Ascher say, “So it has to be something the client finds interesting in a profound way, something they will want on their wall for a long time, to look at every day.”

Art Wins! Award-winning Art App

The Mac App Store editorial team rated Art Authority the best reference app in the U.S.

Art Authority, developed by Open Door Networks and Project A, takes the user on a elegant journey through significant art history. Art Authority boasts at having 3x the number of artworks of any other art app out there.

With the touch or swipe of a finger on your iPad you can tour exhibition rooms that are organized by period or geographical significance or get detailed information on artists and artwork. It’s a fun and easy way to view ancient artworks, contemporary works, and everything in-between.

The New York Times said it’s “an experience unlike any other.”

If you’re looking to expand your art history horizons from the comfort of your couch or while sipping a latte in Starbucks, then this high-tech art reference app is right up your alley. You can download it at the app from the iTunes store for under $10. We here at The Bare Square like anything that makes art more fun and accessible (read about the Egalitarian Revolution), so we’re joining the Mac App Store in giving Art Authority two thumbs up.
