With a new record expected for a work by Lee Krasner and another one possible for a Helen Frankenthaler, the appetite for female abstract painters, and women artists in general, is growing fast as New York gears up for its spring auctions beginning on Monday. "We've seen an extraordinary recalibration in the market for female artists, both historical and contemporary," said David Galperin, head of evening sales at Sotheby's auction house. Last year was already an auspicious one, with record-breaking auctions for the late Frankenthaler, as well as for 50-year-old Briton Cecily Brown, Grace Hartigan, who died in 2008, and above all Joan Mitchell, who died in 1992 and whose "Blueberry" went in May 2018 for $16.6 million. David Leiber, a partner at the David Zwirner gallery, which has exhibited a number of Mitchell's works, recalled that although she found popular and critical acclaim very early on, only recently did her work profit from the increasing interest in women … [Read more...] about Women painters take center stage at NY art auctions

MANILA, Philippines — There is a day in a year wherein children get to show their appreciation for their selfless and untiring love that only a mother can provide. There is really no way to match the amount of love that flows from the heart of a mother, but it is always a good idea to reciprocate by treating mom to the gifts that match her heart’s desires. For the pretty in pink mom Cara Delevingne for Dior Addict Stellar Shine Pink, according to Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director of Dior Makeup, is the color of happiness, freedom and femininity, which is why it was among the most favorite colors and the “lucky color” of legendary designer Christian Dior. As such, the brand recently launched Dior Addict Stellar Shine, a new collection of 24 luminous pink hues, ranging from subtle nudes, to fiery corals, seductive reds and bold plums. The range also boasts of a new formula with micro-pearls for shine; natural beeswax for a lightweight … [Read more...] about LIST: Mother’s Day treats for ‘it’ moms
By Alyshah Hasham Courts Reporter Sat., May 4, 2019 Sylvia Consuelo, a slight 34-year-old woman with long, dark hair, was found dead on the floor of her Etobicoke apartment in the early hours of Jan. 30, 2016. A bunch of unopened condoms had been scattered over her body and she had been sexually assaulted with an object. Three years later, a jury is set to decide whether Najib Amin, 31, murdered Consuelo because he believed — wrongly — that she was HIV-positive and had given HIV to three people through unprotected sex. There is no DNA evidence in the case, no fingerprints or an eyewitness to the murder. In closing arguments on Thursday, the case against Amin was described as entirely circumstantial and based mainly on two pieces of evidence: security footage from Consuelo’s building that shows Amin and the alleged murderer on different days wearing apparently identical clothing and secretly recorded conversations between Amin and undercover … [Read more...] about Jury set to begin deliberations in Sylvia Consuelo murder trial
SINGAPORE: Every time freelance writer Clare Lee, 27, uses a changing room when trying on clothes in fashion outlets big and small, she will take a few minutes to inspect every nook and cranny in her cubicle for hidden cameras before feeling safe enough to undress herself.For 27-year-old Fiona, who did not want to give her full name, she will always double-check that the curtains in her bedroom or hotel are fully drawn such that there is not even a teeny-weeny gap for anyone to peek through, and steer clear of unattended baskets in supermarkets.Freelance content creator Hilary See, 27, would refrain from standing near the edge of the escalator where people can look up her skirt, and try to use either a bag or a file to cover the back of her skirt while climbing the stairs.With spycams and phone cameras taking voyeurism to unsavoury new heights, these women are among a growing number of people who have taken extra precautions to protect themselves and their private spaces.As Fiona, … [Read more...] about The Big Read: Singapore’s voyeurism problem – what’s wrong with men, or the world?
Charlize Theron does not want to talk about politics at our interview for the new romantic comedy Long Shot, even though she plays the US secretary of state preparing to make a run for the presidency. She tried to explain at our interview at the Four Seasons hotel in Beverly Hills: "Obviously, we are selling a very specific film, and I feel like when we start talking about real politics, it throws the fun out of this movie, and that is the clickbait that everyone throws out there. "Don't kill me here, I am selling a comedy. Help me out, I am begging you." Okay, so why this movie then? The Oscar-winning 43-year-old South African actress said: "I pick projects where I ask myself, 'Is there something in this that scares me that I haven't done before? That I feel like maybe I can't do but want to try?' I never thought I would be in a romantic comedy. Ever. So that is fun and also scary." In Long Shot, which sneaks today and tomorrow before opening on Thursday, Theron is Charlotte Field, … [Read more...] about Doing romcom ‘fun and scary’: Long Shot star Charlize Theron
