“Amer Kobaslija at Arthur Roger Gallery,” Daily Serving

Amer Kobaslija. Sputnik Sweetheart of New Orleans and the End of the World, 2007; Oil on two panels; 85 x 124 ¼ in.

For Kobaslija, the studio is a unique and personal world built of interchangeable stuff: floors, walls, shelves, canvases, paint, paper, chairs, tables, brushes, easels, and lighting fixtures repeat themselves across the series, their positions made mysterious by the absent bodies of the artists working (and sometimes living) inside. The invisible movements and patterned routines of the artists order the placement of these unique assemblages, turning each picture into a leftover document of the “work” of the work of art.

Lin Emery’s suite of new works at Arthur Roger Gallery through April 25 confirms her position as New Orleans’ premier sculptor. For decades, Emery, who was born in 1928, has gifted us with gorgeous, glinting mechanical sculptures that are so exquisitely balanced that they bob and wave in ballet-like motion with every breeze.

“Review: Lin Emery,” Gambit

Lin Emery, Return

Lin Emery’s kinetic sculptures epitomize that kind of timeless and finely tuned consistency. But like the timeless, pristine miracles of the natural world on which they are based, they can be easy to take for granted — unless something changes, as appears to be the case in her current show at Arthur Roger Gallery.

“Between Apocalypses,” The New York Times

Paul Costello for The New York Times

Dawn DeDeaux has been thinking a lot about the apocalypse, and she’d like to get you in the mood, too. “MotherShip,” her installation for Prospect.3, this town’s international biennial (which, in typical New Orleans fashion, has rolled around not quite on schedule), proposes an exit strategy from planet Earth. Ms. DeDeaux, a mixed-media artist, said she has taken to heart Stephen Hawking’s prediction that earthlings have 100 years left before the planet gives out. Opening Oct. 25, and set in an abandoned, roofless warehouse with trees growing through it, the installation will have recorded music by George Clinton and Sun Ra, giant steel rings that suggest those made for the zeppelins of yore, ladders and stacked chairs as a galactic assist, and places to store your mementos and Ms. DeDeaux’s.
